We had a fabulous time visiting friends this weekend. We met at the zoo in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and learned a lot of nifty things about God's creation while we visited. I ate sensibly Saturday and not-so-sensibly Sunday, but it seems to be oka... Read more
Sugar Creeping Back In
Thursday, April 19, 2012      2 comments

I realized last night, when I thought over the week, that I had intentionally had sugar at least 3 times this week. I didn't want to go over 2 times, but I justified it this way and that. And it explains why, although my weight is down again, ... Read more

I ate at MacDonald's tonight. My mother gave my husband a gift card there for his birthday. I usually have one of those Southwest Grilled Chicken salads, a fraction of the dressing. It's filling and not so bad calorie-wise. But they were OUT... Read more

Today is an odd day. I don't really feel like it, no matter what it is. Eating well, working, exercising, being nice, . . .nope, I don't feel like any of it! Now a nap, that I could go for. And even though I'm in my calorie range, I feel lar... Read more

Mom and Dad offered to take one of the girls on a Volksmarch, so we've been practicing. Today, the girls and I did almost 4 and 3/4 miles of walking. They're doing very well, and at least one of them should be able to do the 6 mile walk by the... Read more

A Meek and Quiet Sweet Tooth
Wednesday, April 04, 2012      1 comments

The thing I really want, more than to be fit, is to be lovely inside. And I've often thought about a meek and quiet spirit as something good to have that I don't naturally possess. I might have been able to "fake it" when I didn't have 5 child... Read more

I've read so many articles and ideas since starting with SparkPeople that I don't know where which idea comes from, but I remember reading somewhere that you'll know you're hungry. . .not just a sweet tooth hungry, but really hungry, if unsweet ... Read more
Sweet Tooth Not Happy
Saturday, March 31, 2012      1 comments

Those first four pounds I lost, they were easy. I've lost and found them many times. The second four were not so hard, either. I've lost them a couple times. I don't think the next four want to come off at all, and it's partially because it ... Read more

Saturday, March 31, 2012      2 comments

One waterbottle is not like another, as anyone who has tried several types knows. Yesterday I went out (by myself. . .ah, sweet treat!) and did some errands. I was so pleased to find a match for my old water bottle. It fits in the cupholders ... Read more

I didn't intend to get on the treadmill today. After a full afternoon of what my mom calls "teaching minuets," I was looking forward to hitting the sack. But I was very low on my steps, so I climbed on and did my first stint at 6 mi/hr. It st... Read more

We ate them. I had a whole cookie. It was GOOOOD! No regrets, either. But I didn't have more than one. Why did I eat a sugar cookie? Today we had a birthday in the family!... Read more

Tuesday, March 27, 2012      2 comments

I had a small victory in the sweet tooth department today. This afternoon when I was overcome with the desire for a sweet, high-carb snack, I evaluated my calorie-intake sheet and fixed a piece of buttered (one pat 1/3 inch high, does anyone el... Read more
