Poor Little Bunny

Friday, May 15, 2015      3 comments

I was at my moms house the other day and it turned out to be quite an adventure. It all started when I took her little dog out to the back yard. She's a little 10 pound Havanese named Luci. I was sitting on the patio playing a game on my phon... Read more

Weigh in after SRD wasn't the greatest. It's not easy when you are eating every meal out for 3 days, although I don't think I did too bad. I wasn't surprised when I stepped on the scale and it was up 1 pound, not too much damage. I got right ... Read more

What A Difference Choices Make

Tuesday, May 12, 2015      5 comments

We had our first cookout for this spring last week. Nothing fancy, just burgers on the barbie with all the fixings and chips with dip. I thought it wouldn't be too bad for calories if I measured portions. Even I, as knowledgeable as I think I... Read more

Minnesota SRD

Monday, May 11, 2015      2 comments

Minnesota SRD was at Grand Casino Mille Lacs this year. Four people from our chapter went, and we had a good time. I enjoyed the speakers. My favorite was Wayne Vandenlangenberg. We saw him at IRD in Milwaukee last year. He was the Wisconsi... Read more

Pancakes Vs. Cheerios?

Monday, May 11, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday morning everyone was upstairs enjoying a Mothers Day breakfast of pancakes with butter and syrup, and applewood smoked bacon. It smelled delicious, but I didn't partake of it, way too many calories. I opted out for my Cinnamon Almond... Read more

Happy Mothers Day!

I'm not a mother myself, but I have a niece and two nephews, and my dearest friends have a bunch of kids. I was involved a lot in all of their lives as they grew up, birthday parties, sleep overs at my house, baking cookies, movies, playing at ... Read more

This week wasn't so good. I haven't been doing very well over thee last two weeks. I've slacked off on tracking my food, and just plain ate too much. I was sure I would have a gain this week, but I didn't think it would be 3.4 pounds. Ugh! ... Read more

I've gotten behind on my weekly weigh in blogs so it's time to catch up. The weather was great that day. Sunny and no snow so everyone could get to the meeting. I turtled this week. At least that's better than gaining. We had a nice meeting... Read more

Why does it always snow on Tuesday? According to the weather forecast we were supposed to get up to 4 inches of snow with blizzard conditions during the evening commute. Based on that information we decided, once again, to cancel our meeting s... Read more

The TOPS scale was good to me this week. I lost 1.7 pounds. Our weight recorder was absent, excused of course, so I assisted with weigh in. Generally I don't look at my chart every week. Since I had to log my own weight this time I couldn't ... Read more

Surging Ahead With My Fitbit

Monday, February 23, 2015      1 comments

Well, I've had my Fitbit Surge for a week now. They claim the more you wear it the more accurate it is. I've been wearing it nearly all of the time except in the shower, and when it's charging. The numbers for calories burned and heart rate s... Read more

I wasn't sure what the TOPS scale would say this week. I had a ham sandwich for lunch yesterday and I know how that affects my weight. Turns out that I did alright. I lost 1.5 pounds over the last 2 weeks. Not a lot, but at least the scale i... Read more

Getting Fit Bit By Bit

Sunday, February 15, 2015      8 comments

My mom gave me some money for Christmas last year. I've been sitting on my stash of Christmas cash for awhile now. I decided to wait until I figured out what I really wanted otherwise it would get piddled away a little here and there until it w... Read more

Keeping Food Fresh Longer

Thursday, February 12, 2015      7 comments

Sometimes it seems like I throw away more veggies and fruit than I eat, especially lettuce, strawberries, and raspberries. Onions, cucumbers and tomatoes don't last very long in the fridge after they have been cut either. Ok, maybe that's stre... Read more

Our TOPS meeting was canceled last night because the weather wasn't cooperating. It started snowing around noon, and continued the rest of the day. There really wasn't very much snow, it was mostly icy rain mixed with big snowflakes. It was t... Read more
