Daily Highlight 213 - Movies and Lunch
Tuesday, October 01, 2019      11 comments

Highlight - Once again I bypassed the seduction of the movie popcorn and sweets. We saw ‘Downton Abbey.’ Water and a couple of hard candies were my go to. For lunch my sis and I had a vegan chili and cucumber water. We splurged on a krab cak... Read more
Daily Highlight 212 - Cinnamon
Monday, September 30, 2019      8 comments

Highlight - The cinnamon red hots are working, not as well as the old cinnamon Listerine Breath strips. But they are working. I pop a few and it kills my desire to gnaw and it only cost me 6 calories. If the desire reappears... just 6 more ... Read more
Daily Highlight 211 - Helpline
Sunday, September 29, 2019      6 comments

Highlight - For assistance with finding services we can call 211. For assistance with weigh loss and maintenance I thankfully have SparkPeople. By reading articles and blogs I see myself and find solutions to my roadblocks. Sometimes the u... Read more
Daily Highlight 210 - Moving More
Saturday, September 28, 2019      6 comments

Highlights - Moving more and having more stamina is a good thing. However the pain is not, it feels like a fist is in my lower left back. I'm going to work on strengthening my core and see if that helps with the pain. I did get to spend ti... Read more
Daily Highlight 209 - Reflections
Friday, September 27, 2019      8 comments

Highlight - Reviewing what I know and what I implement in regard to a healthy lifestyle, there is a disconnect. This is something I need to explore. I know it ... but doing it? Sticking with the old isn't going to get me to my goals. The... Read more
Daily Highlight 208 - Activity / Exercise
Thursday, September 26, 2019      6 comments

Highlight - I've had to wear an activity belt this week, for the study, so it can be compared to the week I was flat out because I was sick. At least my activity level will be better. 😉 I'm still working on making exercise a routine. It is ... Read more
Daily Highlight 207- Accentuate The Positive
Wednesday, September 25, 2019      5 comments

Highlight - I am my own worse critic, dwelling on what I've done wrong. Sometimes I feel driven to chuck it all. Bad news on tv, life not happening the way you want, one poor lifestyle choice; can suck you down into a spiral of a bottomless pi... Read more
Daily Highlight 206 - Leaving Food on the Plate
Tuesday, September 24, 2019      5 comments

Highlight - After hubby's treatment we went out to lunch. I am proud to announce that I am no longer a member of the clean plate club, didn't even ask for a To Go box. Yes it felt strange leaving food behind, but it wasn't anything that shoul... Read more
Daily Highlight 205 - Summer drifts into Autumn
Monday, September 23, 2019      6 comments

Highlight - Getting the last in of summer's bounty. Native corn on the grill. It was sweet and tender enough that it could have been eaten raw. I haven't been able to find cinnamon red hots, but I did find a substitute, cinnamon mints. The... Read more
Daily Highlight 204 - Impossible Burger
Sunday, September 22, 2019      7 comments

Highlight - After Special Olympic bowling the guys wanted to have lunch together. That means the moms have lunch together, because our adults sons do not drive. I decided to be adventuresome and try the Impossible burger. I just had it with ... Read more
Daily Highlight 203 - Reward
Saturday, September 21, 2019      4 comments

Highlight - The study I'm in also recommended rewards for achieving goals. Since I met my exercise goal for last week, I got a 30 minute table massage. How nice it was offered at the senior center. Fifteen minute chair massages were also avai... Read more
Daily Highlight 202 - Experiment of One
Friday, September 20, 2019      6 comments

Highlight - Had a meeting about the study I'm in. We discussed what is working and what isn't. What isn't working for me is the ability to quell my desire to snack after dinner... that need to gnaw. It dawned on me to try what worked over 10 ... Read more
Daily Highlight 201 - Masterchef, Not!
Thursday, September 19, 2019      7 comments

Highlight - My hubby's stomach has an alarm clock. He will be my sous chef (not that I am a chef, far from it) if it means getting food onto the table faster. He will get anything I need to slice or dice, wash the veggies, get pans, start a po... Read more
Daily Highlight 200 - Temptations
Wednesday, September 18, 2019      8 comments

Highlight - At the market, I spied a former favorite SNACK food. Buy 2, get 2 free! Such a good deal. One was savory, the other sweet. My thought bubbles: "Oh, the crunchy goodness!" "Dark chocolate is good for you, right." "B... Read more
Daily Highlight 199 - Progress Not Perfection
Tuesday, September 17, 2019      9 comments

Highlight - Argh... I get the exercise squared away and the food tracking falls apart. I'm not a fan of tracking, but as a realist I know the only way for me to make progress is to track my intake. I do pretty good with the first meal, then th... Read more
