First few days limiting carbs, and a lesson
Saturday, November 09, 2013      5 comments

If you read my "Fathead" blog, you know that I am now pretty convinced that I should be working to limit my grains in addition to my simple sugars. First observations: -It's extremely difficult to reach minimum fiber goals while stil... Read more
Fathead the movie, Primal/Paleo and a rant...
Friday, November 08, 2013      7 comments

Has anyone seen this documentary from 2009, "Fathead"? It ostensibly was made as a counterpoint to SuperSize Me, speculating that Morgan Sperlock is full of sh*t. The "star" sets out to prove that you can, in fact, lose weight and get healt... Read more
Non-scale victory AND a scale victory!
Thursday, November 07, 2013      5 comments

Two pretty exciting milestones for me this week: My crappy little non-digital scale, which has been hovering on that vague area between 140 and 145 for two weeks or more, DECIDEDLY read 140 on Tuesday morning. ... Read more
New Year, New Goals
Monday, November 04, 2013      13 comments

As some of you may be aware, November 1 marked Samhain (pronounced Saw-een; it's Gaelic), also known as the Witches' New Year. A time of change and of renewal, the beginning of the new year is a fantastic time to re-invent yourself. Finally drop... Read more
The final step in this transformation... once again
Sunday, November 03, 2013      5 comments

It's a little bit hard for me to admit this because I know a lot of people look up to me as a good example of a healthy lifestyle... but... I have been struggling to quit smoking for a million years now. I was doing really well before my Ca... Read more
Progress pic time!
Wednesday, October 30, 2013      15 comments

It's been a while (since August?) since I took a progress pic. I can't recall exactly how much I've lost in that time... around ten pounds? And I really wanted to know if I could see a real difference from working out so much. The evidence:... Read more
Halloween! Help me choose a costume!
Wednesday, October 30, 2013      6 comments

In case you hadn't noticed, I love Halloween. I am a pagan and consider it the New Year; I'm also Mexican (more or less; technically Spanish but my ancestors came over to govern what later became New Mexico) and identify with the whole Day of th... Read more

Let's celebrate! Thanks to my longtime friend LOVEAZ for the idea to relay some non-scale victories and invite others to post their own as well! ... Read more
What's working for me (22 pounds down from plateau!)
Saturday, October 19, 2013      12 comments

I weighed in this morning at 143 (I think; not a digital scale, but it looked closer to 140 than last time!) which makes 22 pounds down from my multiple-year plateau at 165. (Possibly more; I didn't weigh myself for a while and may well have bee... Read more
Falling into place

This week I feel like everything fell into place, finally, and I had a seamless and pretty excellent week. ... Read more
October goals and plans
Monday, October 07, 2013      5 comments

I can't believe how fast time is flying, and how busy I am! It's been an insane couple of weeks getting used to the new schedule with adding school and the part-time job to volunteering and commuting to see my semi-long-distance boyfriend, never... Read more
Schedule for the week
Sunday, September 08, 2013      9 comments

Just finished a book by a "healthy lifestyle" blogger called Carrots 'n' Cake, which wasn't bad... it wasn't great, either... but one of the things that I liked and that resonated with me was her emphasis on pre-planning for the week for fitness... Read more
Oh, happy day ramblings
Saturday, September 07, 2013      5 comments

What a beautiful day here in New England. Although I cry every year when Summer turns to Autumn and the cold encroaches, it is still warm in the afternoons and the light is beautiful and the trees are starting to show a tiny bit of color. ... Read more
Candid photos; or, how to hate yourself in one easy step
Monday, September 02, 2013      9 comments

Oh, this is bad. This is very bad. I just got some Cape Cod weekend photos from my professional photographer cousin's husband. One of them included me while I was not aware I was being photographed. (Another incliuded one in which I ... Read more
One pebble at a time, I am moving this mountain
Thursday, August 29, 2013      6 comments

I thought I'd post a little "general update" here because BIG THINGS ARE HAPPENING, PEOPLE! Not that I have a job yet or anything... (sigh), but lots of little things are adding up to some HOPE for me. I networked with a former schoolmate ... Read more
