I don't say I can't.... because I truly believe most times I can. Most times, I can but I don't. I wouldn't say I am unwilling.... until it comes down to doing something and I am unwilling! Which brings me to self sabotage. I read someon... Read more

Well the road trip is behind me. I did good and not so good. For dinner we stopped in to a small bar/restaurant. I opted for the perch dinner. There was no baked option for the perch, it was fried. I ate it anyhow. Not the best choice, but... Read more

Anyone remember reading that in Charles Schultz' Peanuts? We have had more than a week of gray, cold, gloomy, rainy days. I know it's fall and to be expected, but I really don't like it. Poor Mr Tucker has been listlessly lounging on the couc... Read more

Today is November! Since I recommitted on this journey I have been trying to be more mindful of my eating. Not only what I eat - but when I eat and why. I don't always eat because I'm hungry! Sometimes I eat because the clock says it is noon... Read more
