Aunt Jemima and Bob Evans coming for a very short visit

I get to be a grandma for the summer, starting tomorrow. I just promised to make pancakes and sausage for them tomorrow. This will be a huge challenge for me. My strategy: Eat my breakfast first, drink lots of water, have one small piece o... Read more
This is the same person?

Is it possible to thank God too much? Because I do it all day long. And Spark Guy and Bill Gates and Ben Fr... Read more
Almost half way there, woo hoo!!!
Monday, June 01, 2009      7 comments

My self esteem is through the roof. I can see the finish line but I want to be careful of unrealistic expectations. I CAN'T lose it all tomorrow, it's still going to take several months of intense effort on my part. I'm mustering as many m... Read more
I hate exercise. But I lost 3 lbs
Sunday, May 31, 2009      9 comments

So I'll stop saying I hate it because I love the results. But I really do hate it. Right now, blogging is a stall tactic. I need to get dressed and do that 20 minute shred video. For me it's 20 minutes of agonizing misery, but after I've r... Read more
Day 3 of the Shred
Thursday, May 28, 2009      3 comments

And I did not think I was going to die this time. I couldn't do those last few bicycle crunches but I was able to do more jumping jacks, my legs weren't as wobbly after and I wasn't nauseated. I left home today to run errands without takin... Read more
My body feels like a big ole rock
Tuesday, May 26, 2009      3 comments

It's hard to get up, it's hard to sit down. Even my back and chest hurt. Should you take pain meds just for soreness from a workout? Would it help? I want to go back to bed and just moan all day. I'll do a one mile walk and I might dance to... Read more
If it doesn't kill me...
Monday, May 25, 2009      2 comments

Today I was led to a video of the 30 day shred and decided to add it to my daily exercise plan. I LUV short & sweet workouts and this is only 20 minutes - perfect. Well, I made it through 2/3s of the video. But this gives me a goal to shoo... Read more
Inspiration and motivation coming at me from all sides
Sunday, May 24, 2009      7 comments

Apparently, it's time to stop pussy footin' around and get this thing DONE! I was inspired by a Spark friend who has a wedding in July and I decided to join her in losing 20 lbs by that date. I set a plan to increase my daily walks to 60 minut... Read more
Enjoying my last cup of coffee with artificial creamer
Sunday, May 24, 2009      4 comments

At least until the end of my current challenge. I may go back to it later but what will probably happen is I'll get used to doing without it and won't go back. I'll have one cup of black coffee if I can stand it. I like that it has potassium. ... Read more
Maybe I'm a nudist
Saturday, May 23, 2009      3 comments

Because I can't stand for my clothes to touch me. I just got back from walking and I was very thirsty and wanted water right away. But as usual, as soon as I closed the front door, my earrings suddenly weighed a ton, my bra was squeezing the lif... Read more
Back to tracking
Thursday, May 21, 2009      4 comments

I've been off the tracking for a few weeks and have been eating mostly raw, at least at home. But I've also eaten out a lot more and made poorer choices than I have in a long time. I don't think I did much damage. But tracking keeps me hon... Read more
Really been sorta, kinda lazy
Saturday, May 16, 2009      6 comments

Although I've been busy with living the rest of my life and meeting challenges (finally got a job, halleluja), I haven't been exercising. I think it's been two weeks now. After bemoaning the long, long winter we had and finally getting mild temp... Read more
My new Lucky Hair!
Thursday, May 14, 2009      9 comments

I inherited this menopausal hair loss from my mother. I don't much care but it is very spotty and looks terrible. My daughter got me a wig yesterday. As I was trying it on a... Read more
Green smoothies
Wednesday, May 06, 2009      4 comments

I've had 2 today so far and used half an apple and orange with spinach, parsley and a little mint. The fruit makes them taste really good. It's dinner time but I've just eaten what was left of my lunch salad and some peppers, broccoli and hummus... Read more
Experimenting with raw food
Tuesday, May 05, 2009      3 comments

What I learned today: It is still very easy to overeat on a raw diet. Bananas, dried fruit and nuts are the things that I'll especially have to watch. I had two green shakes today and although not bad, I'll need to do a whole lotta tweaking, try... Read more
