Wrestling with the Biggest Boogieman Saboteur in My Weight Loss Journey
Wednesday, August 15, 2018      14 comments

It's a lifelong habit that never challenged me until about 10 years ago, when I packed on weight for the first time in my life as a result of over-working, hormonal changes, less exercise, over-eating, etc. I currently go to bed and have tw... Read more
What I've Learned from Watching the Bears at Brooks Falls in Alaska - This will Change my Life
Monday, August 13, 2018      12 comments

I've decided to take a page from the bear book and make my body use the remaining fat on my bones first whenever hunger strikes. That is, I've put myself into voluntary hibernation in a sense that will require my body to use what is already ava... Read more
Almost A Miracle- I've Lost My Desire for Coffee/Caffeine
Sunday, August 12, 2018      23 comments

For those of you who've known me awhile, you know that I have tried to kick caffeine throughout my nearly 10 years here on SP. Even though coffee is the only source, and I drink just half of a small mug of coffee daily, I'm very caffeine sensit... Read more
One of These Days I'll Have to Take Out the Scale
Friday, August 10, 2018      19 comments

I think I last weighed myself in February. Never a fan of the scale, before SP, I never even owned one. But now that I am on a mission to get this done, I think I need to have a benchmark as one tool to measure progress. No matter how I tell ... Read more

Making Peace w/My Hair Roots to Minimize Hair Color Chemicals Seeping into My Brain
Wednesday, August 08, 2018      21 comments

I've blogged about this before, and it's definitely a first-world challenge, and not the biggest one I currently face in my life. I'm trying to see how long I can go between colorings; it's the only vanity thing I do and I enjoy my hair color b... Read more
Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts If It Weren't for Food Tracking, I Would've Eaten Another Pound
Tuesday, August 07, 2018      28 comments

I stopped myself at half the container, one pound. Then I thought I'd check the food tracker to see whether to finish the other pound. Yes, I'm addicted to blueberries and these were on super-sale and are super-yummy. But now I have room... Read more
Stealth Calories in Beverages
Monday, August 06, 2018      21 comments

I usually drink water with meals, but the last two weeks I had picked up some seemingly innocuous lemonade for these hot summer days. First of all, the prepared drinks are too sweet. Second, until I started food tracking three weeks ago,... Read more
Lemon Faces vs. Orange Faces
Sunday, August 05, 2018      15 comments

I've heard it said that we become more of what we always have been as we get older. In the same token, I think we get the face we've nurtured throughout our lives. Specifically, I always notice smilers vs. non-smilers. Looking around the ... Read more
Unexpected Benefits of Food Tracking
Friday, August 03, 2018      25 comments

When I started being consistent with food tracking (about 2 weeks now), I knew the obvious benefit of seeing an accurate account of daily caloric intake. However, I've been surprised by a couple of other benefits. My lifelong habit of nigh... Read more
Whose Picture is That on My Passport?
Thursday, August 02, 2018      14 comments

The other day I took out my passport and could hardly believe the round moon face in that photo. It was about 10 years ago, and the first time in my life I'd put on weight (other than pregnancy weight). I noticed that the passport expired a fe... Read more
First Short Evening Walk
Wednesday, August 01, 2018      23 comments

My doc said to start back with a short walk. Although I was tempted to do a longer one, your responses on my last blog kindly advised me to take it easy. I did. It's not just the foot I'm healing, but the sprained hip. So, it's a bit complic... Read more

Tuesday, July 31, 2018      21 comments

Went to my acupuncture session today and, as usual, it was powerful. She said to start back walking in short periods of time to see how it goes after this plantar thingie. I'm thrilled. Starting tomorrow One of these days, I'll have to p... Read more
Exercise Classes Were Cancelled This Morning. The Friend Who Won't Walk with Me Anymore.
Monday, July 30, 2018      19 comments

Got ready for two classes this morning, got there, then set up my equipment for the first one when one of the staff came in and said the instructor is sick and just called in. Last minute means they can't get a sub on short notice. Went do... Read more
Quiz Answer
Sunday, July 29, 2018      19 comments

As always, I appreciate the responses all of you give me. Thank you! #5 - None of the above I DID wind up looking at what I needed nutritionally and had a small meal. Wound up only 300 calories above my range. For me, that's very go... Read more
