Monday, September 28, 2020      4 comments

Friday, November 01, 2019      2 comments

So it's another November. I don't really mean anything by that, as it could be any first of any month on which I decide to write a blog, but it does seem like the days, weeks, months and years are going by faster and faster. And usually they a... Read more
When Challenges Arise
Sunday, September 08, 2019      2 comments

So after two phenomenal weeks, I've had a bit of a hiccup the past couple of days. Both the result of being outside of routine. I so don't want to be one of those people who can't "go with the flow" and be able to survive a bit of turbulence, ... Read more
The Double-Edged Sword of Being Busy
Friday, September 06, 2019      4 comments

So I've been working very hard to stay on track with my eating. I really can't do much physically because I need a hip replacement and mobility is very difficult for me until that happens, which still won't be for a couple of months. So I have... Read more

Tuesday, September 03, 2019      3 comments

Okay, maybe not. But I did break a few "weight loss rules" in the last week, with great success I might add. Last Monday morning I stepped on the scale in I don't know how long. I didn't like what I saw, though I can't say I was surprise... Read more

Monday, November 26, 2018      3 comments

I decided yesterday that the time has come for me to at least THINK about what is going in my mouth and how my body is feeling. I've been eating and lying around like a slug for too long, and have all kinds of pain (my bad hip is starting to hu... Read more
Healthy Holiday Challenge - Day 7
Sunday, November 19, 2017      2 comments

So I have lots to report and most of it is good. I have stayed on track with the challenge except for eating a bit off track yesterday, but even saying that it's not nearly like it might have been in the past. So yesterday's tip was to mak... Read more

So today's challenge tips are as follows: Nutrition: plan ahead for how to stay on track at holiday events. This might not be a strictly holiday event, but tomorrow night a bunch of us are going to a comedy show to benefit my son's school. ... Read more
Healthy Holiday Challenge - Day 3
Wednesday, November 15, 2017      2 comments

On Monday, I saw an SP blog discussing this holiday challenge to keep one on track during the minefield of holiday events we face for the next 6 weeks. The challenge, though not set up as an actual challenge in SP (which I wish you would consid... Read more
October Blog Series - October 17
Tuesday, October 17, 2017      2 comments

I took a pretty giant step the other day in my pursuit of baby-stepping my way to a healthier and more fulfilling existence. On a virtual whim, though the thought has occurred to me over the last months but I didn't think I was ready to act on ... Read more
October Blog Series - October 10
Tuesday, October 10, 2017      3 comments

I slowly seem to be getting into a little groove. Although I was very busy Sunday and didn't get any exercise in, I did yesterday, and I ate pretty well over the weekend (despite a little cake on Sunday, an early celebration of my birthday). ... Read more
October Blog Series - October 7
Saturday, October 07, 2017      3 comments

Three days in a row and a Saturday to boot! I'm not sure I wouldn't be here if I hadn't just finished an actual workout, my first one since maybe last November, certainly my first since hip replacement surgery in June. I have been hemming and... Read more
October Blog Series - October 6
Friday, October 06, 2017      2 comments

I consider it an accomplishment to be back here for a second consecutive day. That said, I had a rough day yesterday overall. But the reason it was rough is that I gave someone else control over how I feel, and I don't even know if that person... Read more
October Blog Series - October 5
Thursday, October 05, 2017      2 comments

A week away from my 58th birthday. How in the world am I 58? How in the world am I still talking about but not doing all the things I should be doing to put myself in a healthy place? But I didn't decide to write this blog, and perhaps a ... Read more
Wednesday, May 31, 2017 - May Day Blog Series - Day 31
Wednesday, May 31, 2017      2 comments

I was so unbelievably exhausted after a busy, busy yesterday, that I went home, ate dinner, and got on the couch. I ate more than I should have and stuff I shouldn't have, I ignored the many things that needed doing, and despite being wiped out... Read more
