OK, I had a bad week what with the Girl Scout cookies and all but I think I'm over it now. Have a salad stashed away for dinner and a great snack of apple and Babybel light cheese. I'm getting my errands finished, am working overtime and still ... Read more
Serendipitous Cupcake
Sunday, March 22, 2009      2 comments

A friend brought me a beautiful gourmet cupcake today. It was called "The Party Girl". Vanilla Velvet Cake with Buttercream Frosting. It was indescribably lovely. And, since I had a salad for lunch today, I didn't even have to worry about the ... Read more
I Am Old

So I had to cool it on my more intense cardio workouts these last two weeks since I burst a blood vessel in my eye and had "devil eye" for a week. This coming week I am going to try to step it up a little (again!) and hope that I don't sprain my... Read more
Annoying Husband
Thursday, March 19, 2009      4 comments

So, I missed my husband so bad when he was gone on his last business trip. Now he's home and it's SO annoying! Making a mess, demanding attention, not leaving me alone so that I can do a fitness DVD. Sigh. It's so nice to have someone to blame... Read more
My Lovely Day of Health and Fitness
Wednesday, March 18, 2009      1 comments

I went to Sports Authority today and bought a pair of inexpensive running shoes. I must say that sports stores are much more women friendly than they were even 10 years ago. Definitely more than 20 or 30 years ago! I love my new purple and silv... Read more

Here are some elements of a healthy relationship to food: 1. You feel happy and fully engaged in life when you are not eating. (Food is not your only reliable source of pleasure and satisfaction.) 2. If you are not feeling hungry, you ... Read more
Yoga rocks.
Monday, March 16, 2009      1 comments

I did a nice, long yoga workout yesterday and felt good for the rest of the day. I do believe I am going to repeat this today! The recent cold snap here is making me achy and stretching feels so good on my joints. The deep breathing and resulti... Read more
Evenings are difficult for me
Saturday, March 14, 2009      1 comments

I went to dinner at a friend's house. She is on Weight Watcher's and made a delicious low- cal, healthy meal. Now I'm home, it's 8:47pm and I am going to do my nails and go to bed and read. It's good to read because I can't read if I've had t... Read more
Replace the bad with the good
Friday, March 13, 2009      3 comments

My husband was gone yesterday on a business trip. It was nice to have the day to myself but for some reason the evenings are always difficult for me to be alone. I watched three movies and drank half a bottle of wine. I went over my calorie co... Read more
Difficult Week
Tuesday, March 10, 2009      4 comments

Working overtime, feeling tired, time change, daughter in emergency room, upcoming move, money issues, friends sick and stressed, crazy parents, unavailable husband, uncontridictable middle age, stupid hormones, filthy house. I give it all ... Read more

Saturday, March 07, 2009      0 comments

I started the month and the week out with wholehearted commitment to regular exercise and healthy eating. On day four I woke up with a burst blood vessel in my left eye. The entire half of my eye is filled with blood. It looks like I'm possess... Read more

My husband walked off with my car keys this morning so I had to walk two miles to the train station to get to work today. It turned out to be a beautiful, warm sunny March day and I walked through the Farmer's Market on the way. Got in 45 minu... Read more

Fat Free Sour Cream Revisioned
Tuesday, March 03, 2009      1 comments

I've made the move from low-fat sour cream to fat-free! It's not so good that it will trigger a binge but it's great added to food for texture and it helps me get my daily dose of calcium. I think this is a new way for me to think. Usually... Read more
