I learned something about skipping a meal
Monday, November 14, 2011      0 comments

Yesterday started out fine. I was in a cooking mood. Made something called slumgallion for lunch (basically ground beef and vegetables cooked in beef broth) over rice or potatoes. We had rice. The rice is a carb treat for me. Then I m... Read more
The simple pleasure of a chronic injury finally healing

In April 2010 I somehow tore my tendon. It was a small tear, but if anyone has ever done tendon damage to the foot, you know the pain. It had a serious impact on my cardiac activity: no running, no basketball, no treadmill. Just elliptical. ... Read more
Structural Integration makes me drink water
Saturday, November 12, 2011      1 comments

I only have a handful of days where I've drunk my water allotment of 8 cups. I rarely take more than a sip or two extra water throughout the day after my morning coffees. Then I began Structural Integration sessions (used to be called Ro... Read more
Another enraged person telling me that I didn't get rid of diabetes
Thursday, November 10, 2011      3 comments

In 2000 I was diagnosed with Tye 2 diabetes. Although I had blood sugar episodes from a very young age and 2 diabetic pregnancies, the actual diagnosis was shocking. I went on a low carb diet and it could no longer be measured. Does t... Read more
Tonight was a binge -- by 300 calories.

I went over calories by 300 today. Damn cheesecake and French onion soup. However, each binge is less disastrous than the one before it. ... Read more
Finally reached the 20 pound loss.

When I originally signed on to SparkPeople, my goal was 28 pounds with target date of September 1. I lost at a fairly regularly pace but did not make September 1. September 1 became November 1 and November 1 is now December 15. I stay... Read more

I was leaving work, hungry for dinner, knew the commute was going to be bad, so my plan was a small box of pretzel sticks that I knew only had 100 calories. The carbs wouldn't be good, but I wouldn't be hungry. We run classes at our locati... Read more
Finally, got a space in the Sunday morning pilates class
Sunday, October 30, 2011      2 comments

I've been trying to get into the Sunday morning pilates class for ages. Even the standby slots were filled. I lucked out and got into standby and they just called to say someone has cancelled. It's hard to fit in pilates right now becau... Read more
I'm old, I'm tired, I've got depressing injuries
Saturday, October 29, 2011      0 comments

Yes, I've lived long enough to be grateful for what I have. Today, I needed to get something cleaned. It snowed, my hands don't like the snow. My face mask was tossed out by someone who never listens to me each and every time I say, I g... Read more
Drinking more water makes me get up in the middle of the night
Thursday, October 27, 2011      4 comments

Maybe it's the Type 2 diabetes, but when I drink more water (yesterday was only 30 ounces of water), then I have to get up in the middle of the night for a bathroom break. I cut down on water consumption years ago in favor of uninterrupte... Read more

I have noticed recently that an injury from 18 months ago has gotten worse. I can no longer raise my myself on my injured foot. I can no long walk down stairs because it hurts too much. So I'm going to try Rolfing. never have, but it's... Read more
Well, at least it didn't go above 150
Tuesday, October 25, 2011      1 comments

Weighed in today at 149.8 and could at least feel okay that I didn't have to move the slider to the 150 first. Last week was 148.5 and for 6 weeks I hovered around 150. What did I expect from a week with pizza, pumpkin pie and candy? ... Read more
I felt stuffed yesterday. The calories weren't so bad and neither was the nutrition.

I had a roast beef dinner yesterday, greatly simplified by mixing AAH Bisto for my husband's gravy. For the evening meal, I had Panera's Take 2 -- chicken noodle soup and napa almond chicken salad sandwich. I was surprised after I toted up... Read more
A perfect day: granddaughter and pumpkins
Saturday, October 22, 2011      2 comments

1 large pumpkin and a grandchild who loves pumpkin pie. I convinced her we could use canned pumpkin and our own spices and that would leave her with a pumpkin to carve. Imagine my surprise to find out she had never carved a pumpkin. ... Read more
We've all heard it -- don't waiting until you're starving to buy food
Friday, October 21, 2011      1 comments

And yet I continue to do so. I had a long day, pretty decent calorie-wise. I forget my day was going to be physical and not sedentary. About 3:30 low blood sugar was approaching. I was only 5 miles from home but given our current traffic pat... Read more
