food deceptions

Tuesday, April 01, 2014      1 comments

I stopped by Peet's to get some tea this morning and the pastries called to me. I bypassed the large scones - even the fat free vegan one and got one small slice of hummingbird cake. Sounds light and small, right? Soooo wrong! It's 500 calor... Read more

Weeds

Tuesday, April 01, 2014      1 comments

We've had rain the past few weeks and the air is fresh and clean. I was lucky enough to time it between showers to get out and weed. Great exercise and it feels so productive to see most of a flowerbed de-weeded. I kept thinking that some of ... Read more

Stress eating

Tuesday, March 25, 2014      0 comments

Lots of changes at work. Seems like attune weekly meeting there is always chocolate out to soften the blow. Today it was chocolate chips and gummy bears. Why did I ever eat any? I don't even like them! The more extra work they heap on, the mor... Read more

Yum - new recipe

Monday, March 24, 2014      1 comments

When I am really eating as I should be, real food is so delicious. I had the time to try a new recipe for a whole chicken in a crockpot. You take a lot of different spices, paprika being one of them and rub it all over the chicken, including a... Read more

baseball field walk

Sunday, March 23, 2014      0 comments

I found a great way to use my time while my son is warming up for a baseball game. I take a walk around the edges of the field. I finish up right before the game and then get to enjoy his game after my mini workout. It's a win-win, no matter ... Read more

Rainy sunday

Grateful for the rain during a drought. Update on the blueberry muffins from the low fat cookbook I mentioned yesterday. Kids and I love them! DH hates them. I am hoping his lack of enthusiasm doesn't derail the kids from trying healthier option... Read more

same problem, different time

Friday, December 27, 2013      0 comments

Obviously I need to change more than I have. I need to look at why I repeat this cycle year after year of losing a small amount of weight and then going back to my same old thing and gaining it all back. Today the journey begins again. I need... Read more

Wednesday, July 10, 2013      1 comments

Wish I knew why I was so tired today. I got enough sleep. Ate healthfully for the past few days. No alcohol in over a week. Excercised yesterday. It doesn't add up. I may have to actually have a cup of tea for the caffeine. Yawn...... Read more

mmmm...veggies for breakfast

Tuesday, July 09, 2013      2 comments

Another member, JSNOW999, wished this upon all the members of our pound a week challenge. I thought it was sooo much more inspiring than just "have a good weekend"! I'd like to pass her message on to anyone reading my blog and challenge you to... Read more
