I've been working madly today trying to make headway on the inchie project that I signed up for on Craftster.org. I've got to have 96 of them finished and in the mail by Wednesday -- 12 inchies each for 8 other crafters. I'm a bit behind becaus... Read more

Thursday, June 17, 2010      4 comments

Just got back from eating out tonight at Olive Garden. What a meal! I had oat bran for breakfast, a light lunch and an apple for a snack today, so I was prepared to order something that I knew wasn't just the daily fare... And I did. F... Read more
Another Emotional Eating Trigger
Wednesday, June 09, 2010      5 comments

I haven't been doing too well with my exercising the past couple of weeks, so I haven't lost any weight. And I'm not stepping on the scales to see how much I've gained. Pretty much out of control yesterday with emotional eating at my boyfriend... Read more

What I Do Best
Wednesday, June 02, 2010      4 comments

Today I seem to be doing what I do best -- avoiding what I should be doing. I'm really good at procrastinating! (Who was that who said, "No brag; just fact"?) Go, legs.... Read more

Saturday Stuff and Clutter
Saturday, May 15, 2010      4 comments

I don't know why it's so hard for me to come in here and write a blog entry. I guess I just feel like I don't have much to say. I've been recording my more personal stuff in the online journal, but this blog his me stymied. So if you're expectin... Read more
Exercising Late Tonight
Wednesday, May 12, 2010      3 comments

I was so tired after the week-end that I've had a bad case of the "just don't want to's" for the past three days. I didn't do any extra exercises yesterday, but since I was pretty active yesterday (cleaning house, doing a craft), I tracked over ... Read more

Emotional Eating
Monday, May 03, 2010      3 comments

I've been reading a lot of articles and different blogs about emotional eating, and that set me thinking about what my emotional triggers usually are. I think that just seeing a lot of foods at one time makes me want to gobble them up. I really... Read more
You Mean There are Calories in There, Too?!?!
Wednesday, April 28, 2010      5 comments

Several of my doctors have recommended that I take Omega-3 fatty acid supplements, so I have BIG economy sized containers of both fish oil and flaxseed oil. Sometimes I take 2 a day, sometimes 3. Did I get a surprise a few days ago when I look... Read more
Prompt Support from SP Following My Complaint
Monday, April 26, 2010      20 comments

Last night at around 11:00 I got a comment from a user named "IllBeStrong" on one of my blog entries and asked me to check out a link to a diet web site. She mentioned that she used the other diet site to lose weight and was happily married now... Read more
