Moderation - responding to FEEDTHEHUNGER

Thursday, January 29, 2015      7 comments

(This blog was written as a response to FEEDTHEHUNGER's blog about moderation in exercise.) Moderation takes some getting used to for perfectionists. I never liked the idea of moderation; used to consider it a cop-out, and would silentl... Read more

Day 7 - A Good Day

Wednesday, January 28, 2015      8 comments

This was a good food day, and I feel well as a result. I was particularly happy with the way I made a salmon salad for lunch. (That's canned salmon like canned tuna - made into a salad.) I mixed the salmon with some chopped onion, some fr... Read more

Day 6 - Hungry but compliant

Wednesday, January 28, 2015      7 comments

I began yesterday with a 5-mile hike in the morning. It was my first hike of the year here in Arizona. There were beautiful sights all around. The next time I go, I will take my camera. After the hike, I was hungry all day. I ate 4 sma... Read more

Day 5

This day began when I went to the gym at 7:30am for some strength training, Curves-style. They have a room with about 12 machines, and I went around the room twice. I'm planning to do this 2-3 times each week. My nutrition is back on trac... Read more

Today we went to a farm with our grandkids - then off to the airport for our 2-hour flight back to Arizona. The quality of food today started out okay. Three quarters of a bagel with cream cheese this morning. After the farm, we stopped a... Read more

Sunday, January 25, 2015      14 comments

Today was another good day. I negotiated a buffet breakfast here at the hotel with the entire family. I filled plates for the grandkids with bacon and eggs and potatoes and other goodies like cinnamon rolls, while I limited myself to yogu... Read more

DAY 2 On Track

Saturday, January 24, 2015      12 comments

It was a successful Day 2. I had breakfast at home before we left for the airport, and I did not join my husband in getting something additional to eat while we waited at the gate. I also did not eat the chocolate chip cookie that the ... Read more

Day 1 of total compliance

Thursday, January 22, 2015      13 comments

Okay, it's time to take off those extra holiday pounds -- and perhaps to continue on down the scale some more. I have been really busy these days - for a retired person. I'm learning Spanish for an upcoming trip to South America. I... Read more

A Siebold Fan

Wednesday, January 21, 2015      9 comments

I am a fan of Steven Sieboldís. I didnít always like his style, but I found he did help me to view my frustrations and disappointments with weight loss through a new lens. The image I have in my mind of Siebold is that he is someone who ca... Read more

My 3-year-old grandson needs to be told, "In 10 minutes, we are going to get ready for bed." or "You have 10 more minutes to play -- and then we will have dinner." It's never a good idea to say, "Stop what you are doing and come now!" ... Read more

Winter goals

Thursday, January 08, 2015      10 comments

This winter I have set some goals for myself. 1. To continue eating healthfully every day, keeping a close watch on proteins, carbs, and fats - along with calcium levels. My endocrinologist has given me strict instructions: proteins shou... Read more

It is January. The holidays are over. All the Christmas decorations are put away. The extra foods and treats that went along with the holiday have been eaten or discarded by now. It is the New Year - 2015. It is time to go back to t... Read more

Drawing a line in the sand

Thursday, November 20, 2014      11 comments

Okay, so today when i went to put on my tightest pair of pants (brown) - they didn't fit me any more. All the other pants fit okay. Some are a little more snug than before, though. My food and exercise routines have been disrupted for t... Read more

My SP friends inspire me. That's the best part of this site. Among several, these are just a few: My friend, ONEKIDSMOM, has blogged about her adventures with entering marathons. That got me to think about walking more than I already... Read more
