Tuesday, February 24, 2015      2 comments

That's how long its taken me to get back down after a slide that started on Valentine's day. Looking back I can see I have to work on food choices when eating out. Being prepared by looking at the menu ahead of time is one tool. A longer term... Read more

the evil side effect of sugar and wheat

Tuesday, February 17, 2015      3 comments

I know lots of folks can eat sugar and wheat and not have problems. For me, they trigger cravings for more and once I've indulged in can take several days to get back on track. I can end up going on a seesaw in weight loss. It also seems to m... Read more

Late night eating

Monday, January 12, 2015      3 comments

once again I had over 500 calories after 7pm. It's like controlling my eating during the day is my job and at nite I'm off work. That's how I got here in the first place. I also have to stop looking at my calories in the evening. I think to myse... Read more

Food choices

Looking back over the holidays there were some good choices and many not so good. I managed to not lick the spoon or nibble when baking cookies this year. Next year, I'll be chewing gum to avoid more nibbling. I'm guilty of "eating while... Read more

2015 habits

Friday, January 02, 2015      3 comments

I read elsewhere its better to form new habits or lose old ones than to set goals. So the habit I want for 2015 is 40 ACTIVE minutes per day, as tracked by my FitBit. Added to my other daily activity, I should easily reach a yearly 25000 fitne... Read more

Went to Valley of Fire north of Las Vegas. Beautiful, quiet, star-filled red rock scenery. Lots of walking, reminded myself how easy it is to get in 10,000 steps a day. I need to expand my territory beyond the four walls of the house more ofte... Read more

Avi scale

Sunday, December 21, 2014      5 comments

I bought an AVI scale, from the FitBit folks last year in November and it synchs to SP so I have a solid record of my weight, most every day. 2014 was tough and I crept up over 7lbs since I bought that scale. The thing is, I'm good about weigh... Read more
