Sitting at the table
Tuesday, January 26, 2021      2 comments

Oftentimes, it has been my goal to deliberately sit at the table when I eat. Sounded like a good goal to help me be aware of what I do eat. Today I was sitting at the table and had just finished my lunch. And I wanted to eat! Was I hungry? No... Read more

Yesterday I was thinking on my weight loss journey. Although it has been a constant battle for me my whole life, I feel like I'm making progress. I'm down 122 lbs from my highest, although it did not happen overnight. I am seeing so many c... Read more

Well, this after noon is turning to be into more of a challenge. I want something to nosh on, like a cracker or something. I allowed myself to have half of a banana, but it's not cutting it. But I'm going to fight this and not give in. Too much... Read more

I just joined a challenge to beat sugar cravings. I've been off of sugar for about 5 days now and don't really crave it or miss it. I decided to do this because of issues I've been having with my body...digestive stuff I believe. Hoping this wi... Read more

i just got back from a mini vacation. I planned my menus ahead of time as best as I could. I brought along my Shaklee smoothie mix and milk for breakfast and lunch. I like to make milk cubes so the smoothies are really cold and slushy without lo... Read more

Friday, March 28, 2014      1 comments

A few days ago my husband suggested we have deep dish pizza for dinner. We have found a frozen one that is not too bad. My initial reaction was no way. I can't afford to eat that. But the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to have some. ... Read more
Bathroom scale
Tuesday, March 25, 2014      5 comments

I think God is giving me a sign that I need to quit using my scale. I let it affect me way too much. Anyway, these last several weeks, when I weigh myself, I have noticed my scale to be a bit wacko. I have a habit of weighing myself more than on... Read more

These past few days I have been doing very well on my plan. This morning I just want to bake, which I will not be doing! So much going on in my life, but I will be strong. I need to find a job and have not really worked outside of the home m... Read more

Well, last night we did end up going out to eat. Just as I had planned for, my husband did order that appetizer-bloomin onion. Yes, I know the thing is not in the least bit healthy, (although my husband tried to counter that being an o... Read more
Out to eat

My husband has decided he wants to go out to eat tonight again. He is very partial to steak and wants to go to his favorite restaurant. He wants me to be excited about this place too, but I am not a steak fan in the least. They have chicken item... Read more
Major frustration
Friday, March 14, 2014      2 comments

Today started off as a good day. I am a walker, and do enjoy being able to walk outside. It has been such a cold and snowy winter here, (like so many places!) that I have not had a chance to walk outside since December! So I was very happy to ta... Read more

I am so very frustrated. I was doing so well before I got hit with the nasty flu bug. I was not myself for about 5 days and didn't really feel like eating much. When I finally felt like myself again, I did not jump right back into my healthy ... Read more
Anyone ever try to eat the kitchen sink?? :)
Saturday, March 01, 2014      2 comments

I know it is just an expression, but I really hate those days when that is exactly what I feel like the kitchen sink! Today is one of those days. I just can't seem to get satisfied. It does not help that we are going out to eat tonig... Read more
