I usually get up, fix the coffee, walk while it perks (10 almost exactly), then settle in with my tablet for too long. I'll glance at the clock and go: No way I've been on FB for 45 minutes! So today I changed things up a little. I walked Whil... Read more
Whammo
Thursday, December 14, 2017      2 comments

It started with a runny nose last night. Now I'm looking at 100.5F on the thermometer and lack of energy to beat the band. It hit me after I got home from work. Tea is my friend. Hope you don't get this, Spark friends! Blessed to have a warm hom... Read more
Breakfast Portions
Thursday, December 07, 2017      4 comments

I just logged my breakfast for the day and it totaled 426 calories. I thought: Wow. That doesn't leave me much for the rest of the day. But then I multiplied it by 3 and had a revelation. I need to be eating breakfast sized portions all day. F... Read more

It's Saturday. That means I can sleep in. Do I? Nope. I rolled over and looked at the clock- 5:15. Then I rolled back over , pulled the covers up to my chin and tried to fall back asleep. That's when I realized something: I had gotten 8 hours o... Read more
I found my motivation
Saturday, November 11, 2017      5 comments

I haveread countless articles that have admonished me (a generic female dieter) to "find your true motivation." I casually checked the mental slots for: 1. Lose weight to improve overall health 2. Lose weight to attain a healthy BMI and 3. Lose ... Read more
Poor sleep equals poor food choices
Thursday, November 02, 2017      2 comments

I have struggled this week with both poor food choices and poor sleep. It started sliding Halloween night when, wide awake after trick or treating, I stayed up too late. Last night it was caffeinated tea with dinner. Again, up too late. Tonight... Read more
Soup Cans
Sunday, October 29, 2017      2 comments

I upped my morning slow (very, very slow) wake-up exercise to add weights. The best thing in the kitchen- soup cans. So, I hold them, lift them, dance with them, and otherwise walk laps around the Kitchen Table with the Soup Cans. I've been down... Read more

Rain is coming so I am getting a jump on the laundry. I have a huge batch of towels going now that ill carry out to the line rather than tossing them in the dryer. Then ill have to go get them later. Nothing like keeping thing on track here at h... Read more
Kicking up my feet

It's hard to log dinner. So much happens as soon as I step in the door. But I did it tonight. Now I'm putting my feet up for just a few minutes!... Read more
The Kitchen Table
Friday, October 27, 2017      2 comments

I am a slow starter in the morning, and I always end up in the kitchen. Sitting in the arm chair listening to the radio, waiting for the coffee to perk, I realized that I could take advantage of this time. I could exercise. The problem is that i... Read more
Donuts & Chinese food
Thursday, October 26, 2017      5 comments

Today I logged everything. Even the donuts and Chinese food. I've realized that there is no sense in trying to fool myself, no reason to try to trick the calorie counter into showing me fiction. I know that game. So instead I Celebrate each en... Read more
