Look to this day, for it is life, the very breath of life. In its brief course lie all the realities of your existence; the bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendor of beauty. For yesterday is only a dream, and tomorrow is but a vision... Read more

Over the past 30 days I have dropped 9.6 pounds. I FEEL leaner, especially around my belly. I notice it in the waist of my pants. This morning I took a new waist measurement. It read exactly the same as 30 days ago. I have had this problem ... Read more

I think it's time for me to quit waiting to feel motivated to change, and to just try to force the issue. I don't mind too terribly being plump. I DO mind being unhealthy. That has to stop! So...here's to turning over a new leaf and taking c... Read more

"Huh?" you ask. You DON'T need a gym to put your body through an extreme workout. I've been lazy lately. I have not put in the effort to put on my ski pants and go outside and play. Tonight I was determined to do so, so even when my daughter... Read more

Let's start with the Good: I am 225 days, 32 weeks, without any soda. I am still logging into SparkPeople and usually logging my food. I am doing better with getting more sleep, usually about 3 nights a week of 8 hours or more. I am succ... Read more
140 Days and Counting
Monday, November 15, 2010      6 comments

Sunday was 140 days, 20 weeks without soda. I wish I could say it's no longer a struggle, that it's easy now. But that would be a lie. It's not always a struggle, but the cravings still crop up. You may wonder why this is a big deal. Perhap... Read more

Things have been a little harder since around the end of September and definitely through October. The same thing happened last October, though I couldn't tell you if it was for the same reason. I know this year it seemed to coincide with the ... Read more

OK, today's story. Baby and I went into town to grab a couple things at Wal-Mart. On the way I called Papa to see if we could come visit. He said yes, but to meet him at Ruby Tuesday's because a co-worker is retiring and it's his last-day lun... Read more
I'm Curious and Taking a Poll

So I went grocery shopping yesterday. I went to grab some light beef hot dogs. Long ago my husband and I ate the fat-free hot dogs, but one day realized we really didn't like them. We switched to the light as a happy medium. So I'm about to ... Read more

So I traveled yesterday and today. I still hadn't studied the McDonald's menu, but I had looked over the nutrition the last time I looked up my quarter pounder and this time I chose a grilled chicken snack wrap and a fruit and yogurt parfait (a... Read more

For a while now I've been thinking: I want to make a home-made pizza. My mom used to make them from time to time and I wanted to do it. Well, at the grocery store I couldn't find the pizza Jiffy mix I remember mom using (and it was getting la... Read more
