  • 80 Lbs lost using the Magic Wand

    A couple of weeks ago I slipped on two fish sandwiches and some curly fries, and while it affected me health-wise, it didn't bother me too much. It happened! I had a weak moment in the office, grabbed something to eat -anything- because I felt hungry...

  • It's not just a pair of socks

    Today in the morning, I searched under our bed for the socks I thought I had to wear when I went to bed last night. I am not sure how I do it, but I think I pull them off during the night, and then somehow the poor socks fly through the bedroom and e...

  • Chocolate uncovered

    I have fallen in love with pomegranates, and to my surprise, it's actually a fruit you can buy fresh, and the seeds don't grow chocolate covered on trees. Go figure! Me, who has never eaten fruits, has to have them now every day. Blackberries in my o...

  • Three days in the red

    I have to say that I had forgotten that logging is actually kind of fun . . . and eye-opening!  I do love how simple MFP makes tracking food and their database is amazing.  But I really hate how many calories and how much fat are in the foods I love....

  • Why did I change my username?

    This is my first blog since June of last year.  For months before that I was trying to learn to eat like a thin person.  I wanted to lose weight without tracking, weighing, or measuring.  I mean really -- lots of people do it.  Why couldn't I learn t...

  • An Ocean of Chocolates

    Saturday after Valentine's Day, my husband came home and presented me a bag of marked down candy. He is a bargain hunter through and through, he can't help it. There were times in our life when money was tight, and we both will never forget.His eyes ...

  • Crawling UP the rabbit hole

    I have a good friend (I will call AJ) who, once upon a time, was a lot like me -- overweight, liked to eat things that wasn't necessarily good for her, and really didn't exercise a lot.  We both often strived to do better, to eat healthier, and to ex...

  • Fighting Through

    Life, exercise, food, logging, and health, each one has its own challenges. The London Marathon is April 22nd! That gives me about 75 days to get it together.If you subtract the 3 or 4 weeks that won't count, I have about 50 days left to train.It's a...

  • Aging, Fitness and Keeping it Real!

    As we age it becomes, admittedly, a bit more difficult to get our bodies in sync with our minds and what we'd like to do or who we want to become. Sometimes it's injuries or illness and other times extra weight makes it difficult. In my mind, th...

  • Weight Loss, the New Religion

    Since the beginning, mankind and their various religions have often turned the world upside down. Everyone has an opinion about unseen - whether it's good, bad, or somewhere in between. They worship, they teach, they hope, they pray, and they even sp...

  • Why I Hate Running II

    Saturday morning I was a little late getting started because of the rib pain from my crash two weeks ago, kept me up for a few hours the night before. I usually have a cup of coffee around 5:30 or 6 am while reading my email and LIKING my friends acc...

  • A Little Focus Changed a Lot

  • So much to learn!

    I've only been a couple days of trying to cut out processed foods and adding more fruits and vegetables . . . and I can honestly say that I feel better.  My joints seem less stiff and I seem to have less pain.  Is it possible to see a cause-and-effec...

    We spend our winters in Arizona and this year we purchased a new (to us) unit on the other side of the park where we live.  When you purchase an already established park model it generally comes with everything in it.  Basically you can bring your to...

  • The Climb

    I love to watch food videos, and this is surely their golden age. The other day, instead of a fluorescent-colored cake decorating or party-dip-baked-in-a-skillet video, I happened upon one about noodles.It was in Japanese, but subtitled, and somethin...

  • Las Vegas here I come!

    Tonight was the beginning of a week that will test my newly made re-commitment.  We hosted a happy hour/pitch-in dinner to celebrate our move to this side of the park.  There was SO much food!  I feel like I chose well and ate small portions.  I did ...

  • How to – Food Prep | Sandwiches

    I like taking sandwiches to work. They’re light (the way I make em), economical in calories, and they don’t make a mess. The problem is, even next day sandwiches can get soggy. And I want to make sandwiches for 4 days, ahead of time – (M-TH - I work ...

  • A Plant Based Diet? Me?

    A week or so ago I posted a blog that included en excerpt of a letter from a friend who recommend I cut out processed foods "and animal products".  I nearly laughed out loud when I read the animal products part because she pretty much knows how I fee...

    I was so excited to talk about a plant-based diet I didn't update you at all on my trip to VEGAS!  As I mentioned in my last blog, I watched Forks over Knives in the airport.  If you have watched the documentary you would understand how I could feel ...
