Food Fight (Probably not what you think)
Tuesday, January 16, 2018      4 comments

Wow. I haven’t blogged in forever. Since 2014 to be precise. How time flies! I think I’ve lost the same 20 pounds at least 5 times since then. Twenty seems to be my trigger number. As soon as I lose it, I start to self-sabotage. In fact, I’m... Read more

This is the first time I made something that my results actually looked as good as or better than the pic on the original recipe. Actually, the final results are a mishma... Read more

Not long ago, I started a quest to find additional uses for spaghetti squash leftovers. I stumbled on a recipe here on SP

Jumpstart Week 1—Done!
Monday, June 02, 2014      4 comments

I lost 6 pounds and perhaps more importantly—my bra isn’t rolling up and digging in. It was really hard to go from about 2500-3000 calories/day to considerably less than ½ that. Consequently, I didn’t follow the plan as rigidly as Bob Harper has... Read more

Friday, May 30, 2014      4 comments

Hello! I'm back on the healthy eating wagon and thought I'd share some pics of yummy food (it was yummy, even if my presentation or photography skills don't make it look so). I'm following Bob Harper's Jumpstart to Skinny. It is NOT m... Read more

Today is the first day of getting back on track after 8 months of veritable hell. I have my meals planned out for 4 days in advance. I have some form of exercise scheduled every day. However, I made some mistakes. I forgot to buy spinach... Read more
Bad day, good decisions (food wise)
Monday, April 07, 2014      3 comments

Let's face it. The last 5 months of my life have been pretty sucktastic and stressful. October: Had to move dad into an assisted living facility. December: Mom diagnosed with breast cancer. January: Mom's surgery. (lumpectomy which got... Read more
Doh! Guilty, Guilty, Guilty!
Sunday, March 16, 2014      3 comments

As I mentioned in my last blog, I'm trying to incorporate exercise into my life as simply a healthy habit and not just a means to lose weight (though I definitely need it for that too). The problem is that when I "mess" up my eating, I tend to... Read more
Starting Over...Again
Friday, March 14, 2014      6 comments

Despite my warning on my home page…I blinked. Complacency got me, then life piled on some major stress…and I gained 30 of the 20 I lost. LOL Yep, I gained what I lost and then some. I seem to do that several times a year. I don’t do fad diets... Read more
The Scale Isn't Necessarily Evil
Saturday, September 14, 2013      4 comments

The scale gets a bad rap. The scale is nothing more than a tool that provides us with just one of many measurements we assimilate. We are the ones who hang our happiness on what the scale tells us. I know some people say stay away from the... Read more
Hiking below the Mogollon Rim (with pics)
Sunday, September 01, 2013      7 comments

One of my friends and I went on a lovely hike today. The only disappointment was that it didn't rain as it was supposed to. We live in the desert and we were excited at the prospect of hiking in the rain "up north." It was humid and hot but fabu... Read more
Spare me the guilt trip
Monday, August 12, 2013      8 comments

I'm working really hard to lose the weight I regained (through a series of stressful life events and bad food decisions). In the last 4 weeks, I’ve lost nearly 11 pounds (10.8 to be exact). I’m proud of myself. Instead of eating Frankfoo... Read more
*The Science of Skinny*
Sunday, August 04, 2013      3 comments

This will probably not be a terribly interesting blog for many, but I just want to throw it out there and find out what others know about this. I’m reading this book (The Science of Skinny:Start Understanding Your Body’s Chemistry—and Stop ... Read more
Run Orville, Run!
Monday, July 22, 2013      2 comments

I have a little crush on Orville Rogers. When I first read the title about a 95-year old breaking records in his age group, my first thought was: "In his age group? Well, just getting off the sofa would do that, right?" I read the article ... Read more
Trying something "new"
Friday, June 14, 2013      3 comments

I really blew it. I gained back all but about 4 of the 32 pounds that I'd lost over a year. Worse yet, I gained it all back in about 3 months of stress induced, mind-numbing binges. It's all a haze. Over the last month, I've been slowly re-i... Read more
