Not Eating After 8 p.m.
Saturday, May 14, 2016      3 comments

This week I'm experimenting with not eating after 8 p.m. I came upon this idea when I thought that maybe my late night eating was keeping me from falling asleep. I've done this for the past few nights, but I'll count tonight as my first day... Read more
Keeping Myself Accountable - Days 5, 6 and 7
Saturday, May 14, 2016      1 comments

I guess I could call this an experimental week. I was able to avoid sweets entirely only for two days. However, on the days I did eat sweets, I didn't eat as much as I have in the past, so I consider that a victory. And I lost almost half a poun... Read more

Keep forgetting to blog! But at least I'm not forgetting what I'm supposed to be doing. Yesterday I did well staying away from sugary sweets. Today I did well until the very end of the day when I had a couple tablespoons of pumpkin spice chips (... Read more
Keeping Myself Accountable - Day 1 and 2
Saturday, May 07, 2016      0 comments

I forgot to blog yesterday, but I did well in avoiding sweets. When I wanted some, I chewed some gum or ate something that wasn't sugary. Today isn't over yet, but I did eat a piece of birthday cake from a party I went to. I allowed myself ... Read more
Keeping myself accountable
Friday, May 06, 2016      6 comments

So, I gained weight this week. I know why. It's because I haven't changed my eating habits. I keep "saying" I need to lay off the sweets, but the "saying" hasn't translated to "doing" yet. So, for the sake of accountability, I'm going to bl... Read more

Some days I feel just fine about my weight. I think, I'm not THAT overweight. I'm okay. Then I realize that the extra weight I'm carrying makes it harder to keep up with my husband when we walk. Or I can't bend over to tie my shoes. ... Read more

Way back in January I blogged that everything I need is on SparkPeople--the menus, recipes, videos, community support. But my eating habits remained the same. So in February I thought I'd try Weight Watchers for a while, just to get a boost... Read more

I don't make New Year resolutions, but I do like to make changes in my lifestyle/habits, and I do this all year long. But there is something exciting, really, about the new year. So, in the spirit of New Year's Resolutions, I declare that I will... Read more
Day 9 of Taming My Sweet Tooth
Saturday, November 28, 2015      1 comments

Because of an early Thanksgiving family celebration and preparation for a Thanksgiving dinner at church I haven't taken the time to journal in this blog about my sugar cravings. I haven't even read the challenges! So I'm just picking up where th... Read more
Day 2 of Taming Your Sweet Tooth
Saturday, November 21, 2015      1 comments

It's near the end of the day and, surprisingly, I haven't really craved sweets today, even after eating a chocolate chip cookie today. It was probably because of the setting--I was at an outdoor event where our church was doing an outreach and I... Read more

My sweet tooth has been going crazy lately! Seriously, to the point of knowing that this isn't healthy. So when I saw the "Tame Your Sweet Tooth" challenge, I figured it would probably be a good idea. I need to do SOMETHIING about it. And s... Read more
"Oops, I did it again."

Remember that Britney Spears song from 2000? I have to admit all I know is a small part of it, and that is, basically, the title of this blog. So, if you think this blog is about that song, it's not. It's just about slipping back into bad h... Read more

Sometimes I think about the passage in James: "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after... Read more

I have been trying to get up earlier lately. I need to get more things done and the best time to get them done is in the morning. Quite a change for this night owl! But I know I have to do it. I'm also, of course, trying to eat less. And on... Read more
Tracking today
Friday, September 25, 2015      4 comments

Today I'm tracking my food. If I don't think I can track it, I'm not going to eat it. Period. It occurs to me that I can approach this just as I would any new habit: One thing at a time. So today's habit is TRACKING MY FOOD. I had to "... Read more
