I'd be in big trouble! This is probably my 5th? 6th? I lose count. I went off the rails a bit this past month or so, but started slipping in May when my daughter came home for the summer. Too many trips. Too many celebrations. I vowed in April t... Read more

So I forgot to blog last Sunday. I remembered around Thursday and decided I'd just do a two-fer today. So for April 8-14: my average daily calorie intake was 2135 and fat was 88 grams. Getting lower but still having sometime before bed bing... Read more

Ah, where to begin... Eating. Not great. We don't really celebrate Easter, so no Easter candy around, but did have patients bring treats to the office for us. I tried to limit the amounts with some success. Still struggling with night time ... Read more
I'm not a blogger...

...but I think I need to commit to at least posting some sort of update regularly. Accountability and all that good stuff. I went back and read some of my past blogs. It's always good to do that from time to time. I can't believe it's been... Read more

You have to answer. Despite REALLY wanting to just pull the blinds, lock the doors, and pretend you're not home! I'm not one to adapt to change very well. I like things to stay the same. For a long time my life was just that. And I was thri... Read more
I'm still here...

Just popping in to say hi to all my Spark friends. It may seem I've been MIA, but I'm still around. Doing some serious struggling lately, not only with diet and exercise but just with life in general. I really have nothing to compla... Read more

10 minutes of exercise is completely doable. Quite your whining, pause the TV show you're watching, and just get up and do it. It is not unreasonable to have a healthy snack in the evening, but you know that one snack leads to two, which le... Read more

First off, let me get the most important part out of the way: I APPRECIATE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU! So many of you send me goodies, comment on my page, send me spark mail, etc, and I read everything and appreciate it all. I'm just not a social... Read more
December 1st-ish

So, can we just pretend November didn't happen? Ok, maybe not the whole thing, but that last half? Wow, so much for blogging every day, huh? As much as I probably need to get back to a 30 day challenge this month, I'm not going t... Read more

Not a great second week, but there are successes in every week if you just look for them. Overate several days, but was well within my range on several too. Didn't make it to the gym at all, but still managed to add extra movement to several... Read more
Days 8, 9, and 10... playing catch up
Tuesday, November 10, 2015      3 comments

Had a couple no-so-good days. I just can't handle having any kind of junk in the house. Today is going ok, and I think I've got it under control for now. For the 30 days small changes challenge, day 8 was to drink only no calorie drinks for... Read more
Day 7, week 1
Sunday, November 08, 2015      6 comments

Day 7 was not a great day. Weekends are so hard, we always have company over to watch college football and DH always cooks for the game. I ate 3 large homemade cinnamon rolls yesterday along with a pile of home fried potatoes. ... Read more
Day 6, and a Friday too!
Friday, November 06, 2015      2 comments

Day 6 is winding down, and I must say it was a pretty good day. Was able to go out to dinner and still stay in calorie range. Fat is a little high, but still in range. Went to my hip-hop dance class for the first time in several weeks. I'm proba... Read more
Day 5 and all is well
Thursday, November 05, 2015      4 comments

Another good day. Calories in range. Went to a 45 minute POUND class at the gym tonight, so I'm pretty beat. Ready to settle in with a little a TV watching and a sugar free hot cocoa. Day 5 of the 30 day small changes challenge was to get u... Read more
