Now I remember how I gained this weight...

I was thinking the other day, "How did I ever get this heavy? I *like* healthy food. What happened to me that I started eating junk?" Today, I remembered that it's not necessarily "junk" that's the problem, it's that I love a real variety o... Read more

Here's part of the SP reflection for the day that helps me: "Above all, be patient with the situation and with yourself. Don't lose your way by being blinded by disappointment, frustrations, and failures." As JLITT pointed out, weight ... Read more

I need to feel the love today. Help! This is the second week in a row with little or no movement on the scale (I lost .2 lbs last week and gained it back this week). This week, I was *absolutely perfect* about exercise and food--5 days card... Read more
My first sports injury
Wednesday, September 17, 2008      1 comments

It's official. I am an athlete. Because, after all, a person who only casually works out can't hurt themselves in a really visible, embarrassing way, right? I was doing my strength training on Monday, feeling a little woozy after scaring of... Read more

I canceled my WW online membership as of this coming Tuesday when my current subscription runs out. It's a big decision for me, because I feel that I made a lot of progress on WW--not so much in weight loss as in just getting my head together ab... Read more
Cheese in a good way

Just found another perfect use for Laughing Cow Light (this time, I think the flavored ones would be good too). I bought Ryvita Rye and Oat Bran crispbreads at the health food store last week. I like cracker-ish things to put salmon on (I like t... Read more
Body image

When I posted that picture of myself in 1982, I did it with two purposes. That was me when I weighed my goal weight. Despite the hair, I think I looked pretty good. So it's a reminder of how good I can look (plus 20+ years, so probably not quite... Read more

I just can't keep cheese in the house. Laughing Cow light, yeah, that's OK because I'm not tempted to eat that straight out of my hand, and if I do, one 35-calorie wedge is plenty. But when I went to Sam's to buy my supply of Laughing Cow, I pic... Read more
Is sweating unprofessional?
Monday, September 08, 2008      0 comments

I just came back from a lunchtime walk, and the final leg up the stairs to my 4th floor office following an outdoor 15-minute mile. Of course, I'm breathless and sweaty. I know that I should change clothes to do the walk, especially when it's in... Read more

I was going over my nutrition reports last night. I'm doing fine on protein, fat and carbs. I'm even doing well with fiber (thanks to the fact that I love whole grains). What I'm missing is calcium. Calcium! With my back issues, I've just f... Read more

Went to Rosetta's Kitchen in Asheville NC today. Wow! Organic, vegetarian, with a large proportion of vegan options. I had baked peanut butter tofu, mashed potatoes with vegan gravy (made with nutritional yeast) and kale. It was the ultimate in ... Read more
Asking for nutritional information
Saturday, August 30, 2008      1 comments

I've just recently started asking for nutritional information when I go into a restaurant. Sometimes they don't have it, but many times they do and it helps me be more moderate in what I eat. Friday night at O'Charley's, I asked for inform... Read more
Aqua Yoga

I'm back on my game again. Did strength training last night and went to aqua yoga during the day. What, you ask, is aqua yoga? It's, um, yoga in the water. Weird, huh? Do you picture drowning during Downward Facing Dog? Yeah, me too...and s... Read more
Exercise on demand
Tuesday, August 26, 2008      0 comments

It's the first rainy day I remember this summer, and renovations have begun, so my gazelle has been packed away. I was trying to figure out what kind of cardio I was going to do today (besides cleaning and moving furniture!), but then I turned o... Read more
Pain and exercise
Monday, August 25, 2008      1 comments

Well, it's a bad day for me. I did more of a workout than I should have on Friday and then spent Saturday moving things around in the house, getting ready for some renovations to be done. As you can tell from my group memberships, I have some ba... Read more
