OK, I'm going to confess. I only tracked a couple of food items today because I really have no idea how much I ate. It's the first time since I had to resume tracking on the weekends that I haven't tracked every single thing I put into my mout... Read more

Saturday, May 05, 2012      2 comments

I LOVE hot cereal, and saw this mentioned in someone's blog, so I thought I'd try it. I followed the microwave directions, using 3/4 cup water to 1/4 cup cereal. The directions said to microwave for 3-5 minutes, but after 2 minutes the w... Read more
Listening to my Body (and the consequences of not!)
Saturday, May 05, 2012      0 comments

Well, I was so excited that I had gotten up to a 15/15 minute split between the treadmill and elliptical at the gym in the mornings. I was even finding the elliptical so fun that I would often go in time to whatever music was playing, often get... Read more

Feeling a little overwhelmed - but didn't ruin my streak!
Sunday, April 15, 2012      0 comments

Well, it's 7 minutes past bedtime, but I need to do this journaling. Friday was the first day in over 8 weeks that I missed doing my PT exercises. I did do my AM "cardio," but had to go home to mind the landscapers, and it was going to be... Read more

My husband has re-started working on some of his health goals this week, and it's trickling over to me, which is wonderful: He's going to work early (which means getting up at 6 AM with me). However, he's actually making the effort to have... Read more
