Today I was reading about Little Light Lies, food that says it is light, but it ain’t. She also wrote about healthier options at Fast Food restaurants. She also linked up […]


What a compliment!

I went grocery shopping this morning. I got ID’d for the beer I bought. After the cashier looked at my ID she told me that my face is much thinner in person. I thanked her for the compliment and told her I had lost about 15 pounds.


15 pounds baby!

So last week was a sad week, I had gained a little weight at my Weight Watchers weigh-in. (Musta been all that beer I had in Phoenix.) But today at my WW weigh-in I lost and made my first WW goal. I have 9 pounds to go for my goal–and that is my new WW […]


9.6

I started Weight Watchers on October 18, and since then I have lost 9.6 pounds. Woo-hoo! I only have to lose 6 more pounds to make it to my goal that WW has set for me. I personally would like to lose 15 more pounds. And I found out today that if you get to […]


Weight Watchers

I joined Weight Watchers today. A group has been formed in the building I work in. Two other co-workers also joined. I have been unhappy with my weight for some time now and I want a change. I have had trouble doing it on my own. WW is kinda a support group. And it will […]


Maya and Me!

So I actually got up about about 6 a.m. (that is early for me–even now with me being a semi-morning person) and get this … worked out! June there was working out at the beginning of the month. But then we were on vacation for 2 weeks, we came back and got settled into our […]

Holiday Eating Tips

I got this in an e-mail. Enjoy! 1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they’re serving rum balls. 2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. Like fine single-malt […]


Creek, eek, ouch!

So after a very long sabbatical I started working out again … Well, I worked out Sunday. Maya (my Xbox Yourself!Fitness trainer) focused on lower body. We did a lot of lunges. I was a little tight yesterday. But today I am walking around like an old lady. At least I know it is working. […]


Wellness Works

I get e-mails almost daily called Wellness Works. I started getting them while at The Republic and made sure to change my e-mail to continue getting them after I was no longer a Gannettoid. Wellness Works are tips about health, diet, exercise, etc. There are some really good ones that I would like to share. […]
