Another Couple of Pounds Gone!

Tweet

So weigh-in was yesterday at the Weight Watchers meeting, and low and behold I lost another couple of pounds! Woohoo!  That puts me down over five pounds so far, and I must say it feels good to say that, and I also must say it hasn’t been overly hard, but it’s a great thing that […]

At Least Four Servings of Fettuccini

Tweet

Yesterday was a challenge on the eating side as, to try and help not always pre-planning a meal, it was time to test some willpower and eat out for lunch and dinner, and it’s not that easy. I was thinking about Subway, or Jimmy John’s, as they have some “healthier” options, but I was really […]

It's the Weekend, Don't go Food Crazy!

Tweet

It’s the second weekend of being on a plan with a little help, and if this weekend is anything like last weekend, it will be another insight into the fact that it was usually the weekends that was destroying a lot of the gains I would make in my eating habits during the week. Not […]

This is the Right Amount of Food, Right?

Tweet

As the weekend was going along, and I’m still doing well in counting how many points I’m eating with my generally being under my allotted points for the day (although Saturday turned a little rough with a couple of cocktails), the underlying theme that kept entering my head was that in the end, the first […]

The Need for Efficiency

Tweet

So this morning was day 2 of trying out a new system, and even though I’m sure this part of tracking things will get easier, taking over half an hour to make lunch is just too long especially when it is simply a turkey sandwich with tomato and spinach, some yogurt, a snack of celery […]

Probably Shouldn't Have Gone for the Super Corn Dog

Tweet

So I stepped on the scale this morning and it wasn’t great.  I walked a lot, did some actual labor, and felt fairly good, but I know the downfall this past Labor Day weekend was my diet.  Friday – not bad.  Saturday – Well, drinking the giant, small chocolate shake didn’t help.  Sunday – A […]

Is a Corn Dog a Good Food Choice?

Tweet

Okay, I know a corn dog isn’t really a good food choice, and I hate to make excuses, but it is Labor Day, and nothing screams Labor Day, other than a woman in labor, like a carnival corn dog.  The good thing about the day is it looks to have a lot of walking around, […]

Up Until the Milkshake

Tweet

A quick post today, but my wife and I decided to split a hot dog and fries (not too bad), and we decided to get a milkshake, too. The milkshake was huge, and my wife bailed early, but there it was, in the car cup holder, and every time I grabbed for it my wife […]

Are We Allowed a Bad Day?

Tweet

I knew it wouldn’t be a good one, and I did my best not to pay that much attention as part of A) Seeing what happens when I don’t pay attention and B) I didn’t want to feel that guilty about it until this morning, but yesterday was a bad day, at least in terms […]

Yup, I Need to Weigh My Food. For Awhile.

Tweet

So yesterday I went for a 45 minute walk, and a short walk with Milo, and scored 10017 steps for just over 5 miles according to my Fitbit.  It was hard.  Okay, it wasn’t that hard, but the 45 minute walk is a tough go every day.  As I analyze today, with maybe a shorter […]
