You win some, you lose some ...

Today started out pretty well. Woke up EARLY, walked to the bus-stop, transferred to the subway, was already downtown by 7 am. I could've been at work in another 15 minutes if I'd taken the streetcar, but it was a lovely morning and I was ... Read more
Eating for summer ...
Saturday, June 19, 2010      3 comments

Hmm. Yes, a LOT of my blogs have to do with food. And you are right, I'm one of those who lives to eat rather than eats to live. I love food, in every form, shape and colour, but I *am* picky about flavour and texture. I've found I can act... Read more
Gaining the "Freshman 15"?
Sunday, June 13, 2010      6 comments

Make that the Freshman 25 in my case. Except that I'm in my forties, and not a freshman at all. Well, I *did* start a new job at the beginning of November, and this one is VERY MUCH a sit-at-your-desk-and-use-your-
brain-and-your-finger... Read more
An exercise in frustration!
Sunday, June 06, 2010      6 comments

There's a recent DailySpark blog by one of the regular SP bloggers about our genes helping determine our propensity to exercise. Here's what I put in my comment on that blog: "Reading this post was an exercise in frustration. I kept looki... Read more
Went swimming yesterday!
Tuesday, June 01, 2010      10 comments

Finally. After ages of "wanting to" and "planning to". I think it had something to do with the new swimsuit - I've been longing to wear it and yesterday the planets aligned themselves nicely so I could! Put on the swimsuit under my work clo... Read more
Sunday Check-In
Sunday, May 30, 2010      4 comments

It's that time of week again. The weigh-in. Well, that's not to say I don't weigh in every day - I do, and I try not to let what the Wii Fit says control my day. But recently, I've started to try to actually TRACK that weight. L... Read more
Crazy Flowers

I bought some daisies on Monday. Crazy daisies ... blue, in a shade of blue not exactly part of nature. :) My friend says the stems were probably set in dye to colour the ... Read more
Checking in, checking out ...

Soooo ... how did I do last week? NOT BAD, if I do say so myself. I had a couple of days of eating out (and pigging out), but I also had several days of eating within my calorie range. And I walked every weekday - between 3 and 5 mile... Read more

This morning, when I woke up, that's what my stomach said. "Grrrrrowwwl!" And again, "Grrrrrowwwl!" Strange. I believe it's been a few years since I'v... Read more
Setting myself up for failure?
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      5 comments

Here's the thing. I blithely claimed I was going to lose a pound this week, in a recent blog. Two days down and I have actually gained half a pound. Grrr. Worse is the fact that I have a dinner engagement with my dear friend - at an all-yo... Read more
Two days down ...
Tuesday, May 18, 2010      2 comments

And my will power has been SORELY tested. I planned my meals for Monday and today. Yesterday, I ate exactly what I'd planned. At least, I did at breakfast, lunch and my at-work snacks. Then I got to the bus terminus on the way home an... Read more
Pre-rewarding myself again
Sunday, May 16, 2010      4 comments

A few weeks ago, I tried the idea of a pre-reward - got myself some flowers on Monday and used them as the reminder of why I didn't want to overeat each day that week. It worked that week and the next. The week after, not so much ... I take thin... Read more
Fat days
Saturday, May 15, 2010      4 comments

Okay, days can't be fat. I get that. But sometimes I get the feeling that it's the fault of the day. :) Truly, the reality is that I make myself fat with the choices I make. Yesterday, for example, I ate healthy food all day. DID ... Read more

Yes, you read that right. Maya Day. Not just May Day. (Today is May Day. Labour Day to most of the world outside North America.) But on one of my teams, I declared today to be MY day. May day. My Day. Maya Day. S... Read more
Do flowers work?
Thursday, April 29, 2010      8 comments

My aim this week was to buy a bunch of gorgeous flowers to keep at my desk as a visual reminder of why I'm SO special (*giggle*) and worth not giving in to boredom-eating. ... Read more
