What's in Your Cupboard?

Several weeks ago a challenge I am involved in asked us to clear out our cupboards and refrigerator to get rid of all bad stuff and replace it with only healthy stuff. I went in, fully prepared to fill up a bin bag with things that weren’t exactly nutritionally sound or worth anything to anyone…

Oh How Embarrassing

Moving right along. It’s Sunday and I’m packing my bag for the gym.  I’ve got some new music on my iPod and I’m even going to brave the snow and go out on my bike to get to the gym. I still want to have a think about how I can improve my blog to…

Better. But Apparently Boring.

This week?  Much, much better.  First off, last week I said So, how about a do-over. How about just a couple of things: 1) I will go to Zumba on Tuesday night and gym on Thursday 2) I will track at least 3 days this week 3) I will finally weigh-in again on Saturday 30th Jan.…

Tuesday is a wrap

I did not track today. Not on paper, but in my head.  I’m good in all areas.  Fruit, veg, healthy oils, etc.  I definitely kicked ass in the nutrition department, and I’m ready for Wednesday. I’m about to pulverize some fat cells now at my Zumba class.  Tuesday, I bet you are sorry you met…

Not Funny, Clever, Famous or Glamourous

But just me. And today I kicked ass.  Finally. How did I kick ass? Well.  Perhaps it’s not an ass-kicking like climbing 96 flights of stairs in record time, running 10 miles at lunch or doing TurboJam before work.  In fact, I didn’t even exercise today. So, how on earth did I kick ass? I…

Not Exactly What I Meant

Awesome.  This was my plan last week: Health plans for this week include: 1) Eat well and within plan 2) Go to WW 3) Exercise: Monday: Running, Thursday & Friday gym – that’s minimum 4) Out on Wednesday to movies and dinner – THINK and DECIDE on BEST CHOICE – don’t get sidetracked by the…

Cranking Up Again

Food planned and made Sunday evening – setting myself up for success this week!  Last week I was WAY too busy and there were too many things going on, especially at work.  Now I can’t truly complain about everything because Tuesday was my husband’s birthday so we went out to celebrate.  Apparently I can’t take my…

Don't be such a baby

I find quite often that I’m conflicted in my head about food, treats, eating, not eating, being denied something, etc.  I mean, in essence, food is sustenance, right? So when we feel like we are being denied, we go through this sort of argument in our heads about why we “deserve” it, or on the…
