A good day
Tuesday, March 29, 2016      0 comments

My whole body heaved a great big sigh of relief today. I treated it right for the first time in 4 weeks. First, off to the Wellness Center to do my pool routine. Which does many things for me including to relax all my muscles. This is very... Read more
Weather effects

Why is it that when the weather changes for the worse we want to wrap up in a blanket, get out a good book, make a cup of tea and eat stuff that's no good for us? We went from a lovely, sunny and warm Easter Sunday to a windy, cold, rainy d... Read more

We're back from our family dinner. I did well overall but really should have skipped dessert because it wasn't very good. We were last minute invites to my BIL so it was just us added to their immediate family. No extended. For dessert the... Read more

I've spoken a lot about the pits and falls of trying to stay on plan during all the "special" events we have in our lives. Basically we all know the challenges and how they can derail our efforts. But we do need the deep soul healing contac... Read more

Just when I think I'm past the worst of my challenges something crops up. An opportunity to entertain, a holiday, a celebration, stress, travel and it goes on. That's why the changes I'm making have to become permanent changes over time. I ... Read more
Tomorrow is Today

Think of all those times you said to yourself, "I'm starting my ______ tomorrow". Far to many times for me. But why not right now? Why not do the best you can to begin the mindset for your goal right now? I've used all the excuses: I d... Read more
Looking forward to tomorrow

I started this blog planning to talk about how I'm cleared to restart my regular eating tomorrow. But as I typed the title, I realized that I should feel that way every day. Yes, I'm glad to be able to return to the Eat to Live plan, but, ... Read more
In the home stretch

This health episode turned out to be a minor blip that is common after a cruise or trip to another country. I can go back to my normal Eat to Live plan on Wed. The upside is the 4 pounds I gained are already gone and its up to me to keep t... Read more
Hanging in

So due to a health issue I'm not actually doing anything on my eating plan. So I have no words of wisdom to look back on to remind myself to keep working. I'm really only posting this blog to keep my streak going. ... Read more
Stay focused

Even as my body recovers I need to stay focused. The foods I'm limited to can be high in carbs so as my appetite improves it's easy to have too many carbs. That can be a trap when you don't feel well. So working on staying focused.... Read more

I wish I could say it was my sterling willpower that has kept my eating under control today. But my poor body finally protested my overindulgences while on vacation, especially the sugar. So I have no cravings for anything, not even a green beer... Read more
Back from Vacation time to work
Wednesday, March 16, 2016      2 comments

I've been back from our two week vacation for a couple of days and am now ready to get busy. Out of necessity, I put in a lot of miles walking allover the ship. That is pretty much the only reason that I only gained 4 pounds. Without going into ... Read more

Tomorrow starts my vacation and needless to say I won't be posting a blog for a while. I will be disconnected with the exception of keeping my e-mail cleaned out. It will be nice to be basically tech free and enjoying nature. That's ... Read more
Some days are about other people

This last few days before vacation I had good intensions. But opportunities to spend time with good friends often include poor food choices. Today was lunch at an oriental buffet with two good friends from church. The one friend is a lady a... Read more
