PS: Another Lesson
Monday, January 04, 2010      3 comments

Oops, I forgot one of the big lesson I learned early on: 7) When I started tracking my food, I discovered that I really had no idea how many calories (or how much fat, protein, carbohydrates, salt, etc.) was in my food. That I was eating t... Read more
2009: Some Lessons Learned
Monday, January 04, 2010      2 comments

I wish I had some earth shattering, wise words to post as my first post of 2010, but unfortunately such wise words are rare and I'm still noodling about my New Years resolutions. And unfortunately it will probably will for a bit longer yet befor... Read more
Post Holiday Bullet Points...

* First, I had a wonderful extended Christmas with my family and my husband's family. We were incredibly busy, and on the road every day, but it was worth it to spend time with the family, especially the ones out of state who we don't get to se... Read more

It's late, and I should be on-line, but I'm wired and I don't know when I'll get another chance to post this week (and please forgive me for rambling. I'm wired, and yet tired--this is why I have insomnia issues), so.... I wish everyone wh... Read more
Work in Progress
Friday, December 18, 2009      4 comments

I'm doing better today. It just all kind of came together at once--the massive headache, the hormones, the stress of the holidays, the fact that when I tried on pants while shopping I still wear the same size, even though I'm 10 lbs lighter, an... Read more
Rough Week
Thursday, December 17, 2009      3 comments

It seems like a lot of weeks lately could be labeled "rough week," I'm afraid. I've been really dragging lately--just really tired, all the time. All I want to do is sleep, and if/when I do get up (because I have stuff that needs to get done)... Read more
End of Week Recap
Friday, December 11, 2009      6 comments

While this week hasn't been perfect, I think over all I did okay. Food wise, it was somewhat a mixed bag. Most of the week I did really well, eating within my calorie limits and even getting most of my nutritional ones (though Wed. I didn'... Read more
A Little Sunshine For a Cloudy Day
Wednesday, December 09, 2009      5 comments

I think I have to rethink my work out plan at least for the rest of this week--I pushed myself too hard on Monday and Tuesday. It is not a good sign when my core muscles in particular were sore when warming up today, and I was really dragging--j... Read more
Week Revisited and a New Mini-Goal
Monday, December 07, 2009      2 comments

I did not go to yoga on Saturday--we visited a friend after going to campus Friday night and didn't get home until really late, and I decided (for better or for worse) that sleep was more important in post--sickness recovery time than yoga. But... Read more
Weigh in: highs and lows
Friday, December 04, 2009      3 comments

The last two weeks have definitely been a mixed bag. The week of Thanksgiving I did better than I had expected--until the very end of the week, when I felt like I'd hit a brick wall, in terms of energy. By Sunday, I was out and out sick, and d... Read more
Mission Accomplished
Thursday, November 26, 2009      6 comments

I hope all of my US friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a good time with family, especially some family members from out of state who we don't see very often. It was neat--if a bit disturbing--to see how grown some of the kids hav... Read more

I read not that long ago a blog about living every day grateful for the good things in your life, not just at Thanksgiving. It's good advice. I don't always write about it--I certainly don't keep a daily journal of 5 things I'm grateful for--b... Read more
Small Victories
Friday, November 20, 2009      2 comments

I'll take the small victories as they come. I figure, the small victories will slowly add up to bigger victories, but that doesn't mean I have to wait until the big victories to celebrate. My small victories this week: I went to the f... Read more

As you can tell from my previous blog posts, the last two months I've been under a lot of stress and struggling more often than not to stay on track with this healthy living lifestyle. I haven't exactly fallen off the wagon--though it's come cl... Read more
Roller coaster dieting
Monday, November 16, 2009      2 comments

So, if my average calorie consumption over the course of the week is within range, does that count at least some? Sigh. Last week was especially bad. Early in the week, I was working out regularly, but also insatiably hungry--and went way... Read more
