Thursday, August 11, 2016      4 comments

Today I joined a weight loss class through my insurance. It was a webinar format and I have never done that before. I also have avoided saying things out loud about my weight loss journey. It was scary at first. I actually thought about not ... Read more

On a whim, I took the kids to the Boardwalk yesterday. It was so fun! I had forgotten how much I love the wooden roller coaster. I am so grateful that they like to ride roller coasters too! It reminds me that my oldest son wrote a cool poem ... Read more

Went out to lunch with a friend today. Thought I did so well. Shared a chicken sandwich minus cheese and mayo with my son, had water instead of soda, had a "small" portion of fries and a salad with minimal dressing. This afternoon, I got trac... Read more

Tomorrow is the Rodeo Parade in our town. It's the only parade our town has every year and it's a big deal. I've always loved watching it. Back when I had to push a stroller and weighed a little less, I even enjoyed marching and representing ... Read more

Up until now, my blogs have all been healthy habits related, especially weight loss related. I realize how odd that is. We are all more than just our healthy habits or our journey towards healthy habits. Today, for a change, I am going to wri... Read more

last summer an acquaintance asked if I could be her project for one of her nutrition classes. She looked at my data and said I wasn't eating enough fat overall and specifically not enough healthy fats. LOL I've tried most of my life to avoid fat... Read more

Last night at a friends house my kids discovered a Jane Fonda video on utube. It was hysterical watching them do old style aerobics. Today they want to do it with me. We've set aside some time after chores to do it together. Not sure how much ex... Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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
