Three things I've accomplished.
Friday, November 06, 2015      5 comments

Today SparkCoach has me listing three things I have accomplished. I finished building and painting a standing desk. I have dropped twenty pounds. And my blood sugar numbers have dropped. Even more important than individual accomplishments: ... Read more
My Progress
Tuesday, November 03, 2015      3 comments

I have not lost more weight, but since that was never my first concern, I am still proud of my progress. Sometime this month I will make an appointment for an update on my blood work--which has always been my major concern! This is not a race, i... Read more

At some point in your journey through this life, you must make a decision on how you are going to live. I have made the decision to eat a certain way as a lowcarbarian (thank you Woubbie!). That means that I am eating a certain way to impact my ... Read more
Another pound lost
Saturday, August 08, 2015      2 comments

I have lost a pound. I'm getting close to the goal I set for myself and it took 6 weeks to lose this pound, but since this is a way of eating instead of a diet, I did not get particularly discouraged. In fact I had begun to think I was at my fin... Read more
More movement

Changed my tracker to better reflect what I can actually do. Now I am making my goal and taking more steps than I did when the goal was higher. Go figure. When I believe something is doable I seem to accomplish it. Take away: go in small steps a... Read more
Thoughts on Low Carb and SP
Saturday, July 11, 2015      4 comments

I used SparkPeople to lose some weight several years ago. Lost about 10 pounds using their low fat, count calories way of eating and kept it off until a round of corticosteroids for a bad knee. After a scary bout of either a bad migraine or TIA-... Read more
Working through a tough time without resorting to comfort food.

Yesterday was a Marx Brothers movie mixed with the Three Stooges and a little Chain Saw Massacre. One of the dogs somehow got into a pan of paint I was working with and tracked these cute little paw prints onto the brick floors through three roo... Read more
Traveling on LCHF
Saturday, June 20, 2015      4 comments

Traveling for a grandchild's wedding. Ready for the cake and sweets--not tempted. Dinner with family--hamburger without the bun, but all the trimmings. Omelet for breakfast--good idea, but not well made/burned. Free but not satisfying. Glad for ... Read more

Today I have been eating LCHF for six months. My outlook on what is important and what is not is changing. No longer am I dieting. Now I am eating a certain way to be healthier and enjoy life more. Birthdays are about celebrating life, not about... Read more

The featured blog this morning got me thinking about transforming my life from one way of eating to another way of eating. In a sermon a priest once said "even if you don't believe, if you act like you do in all the little things and live your l... Read more
Eating in the Real World
Monday, May 25, 2015      1 comments

It seems to be the time of the year for Open Houses and Birthdays and Celebrations of all kinds. Or now that I am eating differently, maybe I just notice them more. At one time you went to whatever--art show opening, graduation celebration, wedd... Read more
It's Time to Start Blogging
Sunday, May 24, 2015      4 comments

I began blogging when I signed up with SP, but it fell by the wayside and I concentrated on eating well, tracking and all of the other components of SP. Now is the time to begin again. Life seems kind of like that too. You concentrate on one par... Read more
Jumping in with Gusto
Saturday, February 07, 2015      1 comments

I gardened for three hours today. It's only the 7th of February and I'm out there cleaning up, trimming trees and putting out mulch like there is a garden party tomorrow! I pretty much go whole hog on anything I do. My Dad used to say: if it is ... Read more
It's all about the Mindset
Saturday, January 03, 2015      0 comments

I am enjoying the LCHF way of living for several reasons, but the main reason is it makes it easy to stick to the eating plan. I have dieted to lose 10-15 pounds several times in the past and it always involved determination, hunger and loooong ... Read more

Until just under two years ago, I was very active. I have race-walked an half marathon and several 15K's, practiced yoga, hiking and most recently competed in dog agility with several of my dogs for about 10 years. Walking was always my go-to fo... Read more
