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 ...

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

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-

Setting myself up for failure?

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
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
