Because I said I would..... it has gotten me through some tough decisions but the ones made on my recent road trip were an all out fail! I packed some healthy snacks, but at a fuel stop along the way picked up a giant bag of Twizzlers (they... Read more

Well the road trip is behind me. I did good and not so good. For dinner we stopped in to a small bar/restaurant. I opted for the perch dinner. There was no baked option for the perch, it was fried. I ate it anyhow. Not the best choice, but... Read more

Hmmmm. Over thinker... check. I want to set new goals for my journey to a healthier me. I want to focus on my health and numbers like my blood pressure, my glucose level, my cholesterol level instead of the number on the scale. So - have... Read more

It's a New Year! I always get all these hopeful feelings at the beginning of a New Year.... this one will be different. For those of you who can relate to snow - think of a yard blanketed with freshly fallen snow. No footprints, no dirt, just... Read more

Anyone remember reading that in Charles Schultz' Peanuts? We have had more than a week of gray, cold, gloomy, rainy days. I know it's fall and to be expected, but I really don't like it. Poor Mr Tucker has been listlessly lounging on the couc... Read more

Today is November! Since I recommitted on this journey I have been trying to be more mindful of my eating. Not only what I eat - but when I eat and why. I don't always eat because I'm hungry! Sometimes I eat because the clock says it is noon... Read more

So October was an up and down month - but in the end progress was made. My eating was not spot on. There were times of eating out when I didn't make the best choices and then there was the kids Halloween party at my office, however, I managed ... Read more
