Our family went out to dinner on last night. When I go out to dinner with my husband, friends or family, I always order a salad, which I wrote about my reasoning behind why I do that here. Well, since I ate a salad for lunch yesterday, I decided to take, what probably seems ridiculous […]

It’s been just under three weeks that I have been eating intuitively. To be honest, I think what I’m doing is more of a combination of intuitive eating/healthy eating/mindful eating. I’m not “totally going for it” as the intuitive eating books tell you. I think that is aimed more at people who have been dieting […]

So I went on vacation and have been home now for a few days. Since March 26, I have not looked up one item in a calorie book or looked up one thing on a calorie counting website. This, my friends, is a MIRACLE. I can’t remember a time since I was a teenager that […]

My birthday was yesterday and the weekend included a little bit of a little bit of struggle, but mostly great stuff. The birthday celebration started Friday night when two dear friends took me out to dinner. There is nothing like getting out with a couple of friends and just relaxing while the husband takes care […]

So last night went well. I expected a full table of decadent treats at the condolence call but there was much less food than I expected. So that was a good thing – less choices. I felt very calm and relaxed. I was choice-ful prior to going and decided that I would taste/eat things that […]

Well, there was some good and bad that happened last night at the dreaded dinner and dessert buffet. Here is how I scored myself: 1. I ate a good amount of challah. I LOVE the guts of any kind of bread – the doughy knots of a pretzel and best of all, the insides of […]

Exercising and Dessert Buffets

I consider myself lucky that despite all of my food craziness, working out has never been an issue for me. Since I was a kid and all through high school, I was a tomboy, always playing organized sports, and when that ended I would join a gym or just work out on my own, and […]
