Good news: I did the one strength workout last week and lots of walking. Holiday travels left me tired, though, and I need to get back on track tomorrow, despite the winter weather. Plan for this week: --Eat mostly veggies and frui... Read more

Short version: fruits and vegetables. I'll be traveling 11/20 to 25, seeing friends in San Francisco. So some workouts will be great, like longer walking, while others will be limited, like strength. I plan to still do one strength wor... Read more

Saturday, November 09, 2013      1 comments

Time will tell, but it looks like I may be up in weight after eating on the 7+ fruits and veggies plan this week. Maybe two pounds. One might be fluctuation, but it's frustrating to see two... yesterday it was just one, so I weighed again tod... Read more

I learned this weekly planning thing from a diet support group I was part of some years ago. With their face-to-face help and the WW Online tools, I had gone from 190-145 (goal reached in Jan 2005). But 145 was way too little for my relatively... Read more

Just a few blog entries back I said something about how the site was still overwhelming to me. I have to say, the start page redesign really addresses most of what I had found confusing previously. I really like it! Since I'm working from... Read more

Travel is coming at the end of next week, going to visit a friend with two small children in the Chicago area. By "small" I mean 3yrs and 1yr, and her husband will be out of town. I am their "aunt" and it should be fun, but I'll have to pay a ... Read more

Lost it, trying again
Wednesday, October 09, 2013      2 comments

Yesterday. Eating was such as easy game to play. Now I've eaten all those carbs away... In the past, when I lost a lot of weight, I did it like a machine. I was getting my phd, and I worked hard and focused and did it all like a job. I ... Read more

Trial-walked my 5K distance
Tuesday, October 01, 2013      5 comments

And came in at about 51mins! It was really 3.2 miles, so I'm thinking 50mins is a great benchmark for my Saturday race-against-racism. Because I also live on Race Street, I find myself giggling a little about all these meanings of "race" even ... Read more

Monday, September 30, 2013      2 comments

A friend of mine died on Sunday morning, very early. His partner, also my friend, let me help take care of her on Sunday. It was a gift that she would let me show her my love during this awful and confusing time. He was older, we knew it was ... Read more
