The weekend got away from me

Granted, it was a fun weekend. Friday is Pizza Night at our house, but instead of ordering takeaway, I made my own with a store-bought crust, jarred sauce that I bought at Ledo's Pizza (I love their sauce), and my own toppings. Sat... Read more

My family agrees that I should lose weight, and will insist that they support me. They also refuse to eat healthy food, so I end up having to prepare fatty processed foods for them (and after spending hours frying their dinner, I admit that I'm... Read more

This weekend the boys and I took a day trip to explore the northern reaches of the Chesapeake Bay, stopping at Chesapeake City, North East, and Havre de Grace (all in Maryland). It was a day for small towns, quirky main streets, sunny bay views... Read more

I recently bought a copy of "Younger Next Year for Women" by Chris Crowley and Henry S. Lodge MD. I'd read the original book several years ago on the recommendation of my trainer, and I loved Lodge's description of the biology of exercise, gr... Read more

So I bought a heart rate monitor (HRM) recently, and it is with mixed feelings that I get out the bifocals to read the instructions. I read in the book "Younger Next Year" about using an HRM to make sure that you're working out in your ta... Read more

I want to share a recent impulse purchase with you: Korean pancake mix. I think the brand is Beksul in English. It's fat-free! You mix it with water and then stir in savory tidbits--leftover vegetables or meat, Kimchi, scallions, seafo... Read more

...I give portion control a bad name. Jon Bon Jovi will never hire me as a lyricist. The local "Crabwrapper" newspaper had a lovely-looking recipe for French-onion hand pies (pasties to some of you). It called for packaged pie crust (left... Read more
I'm afraid. Why?

Flashback to an old TV commercial: Jane Seymour says "What do you have to be afraid of? It's only a little box of hair color." Fast forward to now: I actually completed the Run Your Butt Off program and can jog for 30 minutes without s... Read more

I'm in a weight rut. This past half-pound simply does not want to budge, and I'm gonna whine about it. I've been pretty good about my exercise and kind of good about tracking my food--I track it, but don't always like what I see. (oh, you're ... Read more

So here I am, still plugging away at this weight-loss journey. Planning my menus. Shopping for healthy foods. Logging what I eat (in my world, that's where SparkPeople shines--making the tracking and analysis easy). Discovering new recipe i... Read more

So I'm feeling very motivated, and toddle off to the gym for a workout. I get on one of the gym's new Matrix elliptical machines. Five minutes into my workout, I choose to reverse my direction to keep myself interested. Unfortunately, this re... Read more
Very fine whines

Nothing is insurmountable, right? - I'm at a function where I can't even identify the food I'm eating, although it is delicious (so enjoy it and ask somebody to identify it for me) - I'm at a function where I'm eating hors d'oeuvres and f... Read more
