Here's a peek at today's menu, breakfast (at home) and lunch for later.
The oatmeal looks like it is overrun by the raisins and possibly is - but it was a small box of... Read more
I have a weird relationship with jewelry. I really enjoy certain styles and pieces, but actually don't wear it all that much. I actually make it too, but that was born out of a desire to keep my hands busy and out of the kitchen.
In the la... Read more
On the Way to 398
I have had a truly amazing week. I stopped bingeing, turned over a new leaf and began eating healthy and did a version of running with my coach. The culmination of those things showed up today, when I went to weigh in and for the first time in r... Read more
The New Ten Seconds
I had an incredibly awesome day with success from top to bottom. I walked to meetings instead of trying to catch a ride, I walked up a big hill instead of taking a shortcut, I ate well and had an amazing session with my coach.
First, here'... Read more
Blazing a Trail
There is a thin line between I don't want to and I can't. I could have taken a pill that would have numbed the pain today, but I didn't intentionally. It sounds ridiculous even to me, but this morning I was all about feeling the pain (really sor... Read more
Post Workout and On the Menu, Day 4
The funny thing about today is that I feel so happy, I am nearly giddy. That's one side, but on the other, I am so sore today, it feels like every fiber of my body is aching. It is a result of last night's workout. I know that. I also opted not... Read more
Rocking the Comeback Trail
How do I feel right at this very minute? Happy. Happier than I can probably put into words.
My work day went well - highly productive, and two projects I am leading are going swimmingly. One person that I don't really care for lodged a com... Read more
The healthy lunch is starting to be a happy habit. This morning when I was assembling it, I realized making my lunch is a very loving thing to do. I am feeding myself in a nourishing way - having healthy food - not to mention how much money I ha... Read more
Finding My Way Back to my Happy Place
Got trapped a bit at work tonight and thus arrived at the gym late --- but I arrived. I did not shirk it off. I still had a 30 minute plus workout with my trainer, Don, and I felt pretty euphoric about it. Why? Because even I can see I am making... Read more
Dining with the Three Bears
My intentions were certainly good this morning. (although one of my late mother's favorite expressions was "the road to hell is paved with good intentions.) Perhaps, a little dark. Nonetheless, I got up a bit earlier this morning, and lollygagg... Read more
Stopped at Trader Joe's on the way home tonight after working a wee bit late. It was kind of crappy out - weather wise - cold and rainy, but it's my only "free" night for the next 2 weeks, so I went. Stopped for gas on the way. It's nice to have... Read more
On the Menu Today - Monday 11/17
I'm no cook. I haven't been really making meals since I first moved out - and that was a long time ago. After I got married, hubby preferred to take on that role as he prefers food that is highly seasoned. I don't. He likes things super spicy (x... Read more
Jumping in with Both Feet
I started to write a mea culpa blog earlier in which I laid out all of the things I have been doing wrong, how I crashed and burned and how I veered off course. It feels kind of pointless now, and those I needed to make amends with, I have, so o... Read more
I Don't Want to be Fat Anymore
Out of the shower, looking at myself in the mirror, doesn't make me wince anymore. I am looking at myself thinking the things I don't like can be fixed.
I have layers and layers of fat on me. I am under there somewhere. How I've managed to... Read more
If there is anything smart I have done, it is that I have built a wonderful support team around me. In times of turmoil, and continued difficulties on the job, the place that I can turn to that has become my refuge, is strangely (to me), the gym... Read more
