Late Winter Weekly Meal Plan

February 24th, 2008 · 7 Comments

I’m still on the road to recovery from anemia, though I am feeling somewhat better and was able (yay!) to do a run yesterday without the deep, sickening exhaustion that had been accompanying my exercise. (That was my first run—a short one, just a mile—after taking a week off from exercising while I get my […]

Valentine’s Week Healthy Meal Plan (& My Weigh-In for the Week)

February 9th, 2008 · 10 Comments

I’m weighing in this week at 168.8 pounds, which means I have now lost 34.8 pounds since January of 2007 and over 58 pounds since my highest weight. I have 18 pounds until I reach my goal weight! That’s exciting. (My goal weight could always change if I decide I’m comfortable at a different weight […]

Keeping motivated while making gradual change

January 5th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I watched this video and thought, “Wow, how often is that me?” I sent it to my husband with a note that it reminded me of someone (me), and he responded, “That reminds me of a lot of people, but you’re not one of them.” He thinks I make up my mind to do things […]

Slowing down

December 14th, 2007 · 3 Comments

I can’t believe it’s been 10 days since my last post, but then again, I guess I can.  As many of you also have been lately, I’ve been running hither and thither to various work, social, exercise, and medical engagements.  Despite tiring myself out thoroughly,  I haven’t slept any better than I usually do–which is […]

Kicking Off My Allergen-Free Baking Month

December 4th, 2007 · 21 Comments

As I’ve mentioned previously, every month I have a new activity to focus on trying. I learned about my food allergies and my atypical celiac disease this summer in the midst of . . . well, a lot going on in my life. So when I was setting up my activities for each month, I […]

The Week in Which I Finally Get to Breathe (and my weekly meal plan)

December 2nd, 2007 · 9 Comments

In about half an hour, I’m leaving for a big annual event that I planned for my (non-profit) job. We’ll have 250 attendees and 50-60 volunteers present. Santa will be there for free photos (which one set of volunteers will take, and then will put in frames they create with the kids). Each of the […]

Considering the Holidays

November 26th, 2007 · 2 Comments

I’m sitting in Rev, a little independent coffee shop near my workplace in the ‘burbs of Atlanta, drinking a decaf peppermint mocha latte (made with hazelnut milk I provided, natch).  Just the smell of the drink wafting toward me as I carried it to the couch took me back to happy memories of childhood Christmases.  […]

Yesterday was a good day.  Perhaps it’s continuing into today, actually.  First of all, I weighed in at 175.4 pounds yesterday morning. (Today it’s actually a bit lower, but I’m going with my Saturday weigh-in.)  To weigh 175 pounds has been a goal that’s been stuck in my head for some reason; 175 seems like […]
