I am a rock star bad ass wonder woman. I did it. I totally did it. I ate no candy last night! And the amazing thing was that most of the time, after I decided in advance not to eat it, the candy wasn’t on my mind that much. I had anticipate... Read more
A Letter to myself on Halloween morning
Wednesday, October 31, 2018      4 comments

Dear Rock Star, So...Halloween. Your favorite. So much fun to see the kids in their costumes. So much fun to have a huge basket of candy and remember the one-night-only decadence of a strict childhood household. This is the day to pret... Read more
This is getting serious. But will I?

After another month of not blogging, not weighing, not tracking, I am up four pounds. And now my knee is starting to hurt. I began walking a few miles every day with my dogs, something I was feeling great about, and now I think it was too much t... Read more
It's a festivus miracle
Thursday, May 05, 2016      0 comments

Over the last week, I had a visiting mother-in-law, an offer on my house, a scramble to find a new house, my daughter's school play (and all the attendant hair and makeup duties thereof), a back injury I still haven't figured out what to do with... Read more
Could have been better, could have been worse

Dinner last night could have been better, but it could have been worse, too. I let a few bumps in the road make me cranky and ended up wasting a ton of time watching TV last night instead doing things that are important to me. Will today b... Read more
Back in the swing

Yesterday was a great day! I ate well, walked two miles and the scale shows it this morning. I also avoided the dreaded time-waster (TV) and made some progress on a writing project that’s been difficult for me. Yay! Here is food for yesterday: ... Read more
I should have paid more attention to the after-school specials
Monday, April 25, 2016      0 comments

This weekend, I took a friend out for a birthday celebration and ended up drinking more than I had intended. It wasn't terrible (4 drinks over about 5 hours) but still, about twice what I had planned. Like an uncertain teen in the afterschool sp... Read more
Pretty good, not perfect
Saturday, April 23, 2016      3 comments

It's hard to keep going when you believe you won't get there. But that's exactly what I need to do. Keep going, no matter how sad I feel that day, no matter that I took a handful of pretzels that I hadn't planned to take. Keep going. Keep going.... Read more
Emotional eating rears its ugly head
Friday, April 22, 2016      1 comments

But, I didn't let it get the best of me, or at least not too much. I'm struggling with a professional goal, and sometimes it feels like I will never get there. Yesterday, I felt really sad about it and ate two large handfuls of pretzels that I d... Read more

Building momentum, one day at a time
Wednesday, April 20, 2016      1 comments

Another good day yesterday, and the scale agrees. There's nothing like that first week of changing your diet and exercise. The pounds seem to fall off. And then next week, the slow crawl of sustained weight loss will begin. :-) That's okay. Prog... Read more
Feeling optimistic after day one back
Tuesday, April 19, 2016      2 comments

EXCELLENT DAY YESTERDAY! Made a checklist of healthy behaviors, including some nonfood/exercise habits I’d like to build into my life. Great eating, worked out for 35 minutes, and didn't get sucked into time-wasting activities! Not a perfect day... Read more
All time high (and not in the good way)
Monday, April 18, 2016      3 comments

After quite an absence, I am back, weighing more than I ever have before. I just got back from vacation in the Caribbean, where the way I looked in a bathing suit didn't bother me nearly as much as the way I felt. When I woke up in the morning. ... Read more
New rule for today: No TV Eating
Thursday, February 25, 2016      1 comments

So yesterday started out fairly strong, and I did a workout, so yay me. But by mid-afternoon, I was cramming sweets into my mouth. Ok. I am breathing and beginning again. Goals for today: workout again. Keep up the food journaling (which i ... Read more
Really feeling terrible and not wanting to
Wednesday, February 24, 2016      4 comments

I tried to come back, but didn't. I tried a few things but gave up after two or three days. I need to get back to where I was. To when the opportunity of having a sweet didn't completely throw me off balance. To when I didn't hurt in the morning... Read more
