This past Saturday marked 11 weeks of intuitive eating and I’m pretty happy about that. However, there is a bit of a wrench thrown in there with the triathlon training… as often happens when you workout a lot/differently, you sometimes lose your appetite. Now if I was following the rules of IE, I would only […]

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 […]

Some people have emailed me privately and asked me how I figured out what my goal weight was and how I’ve been able to have maintained it for a year and a half now. I thought it might be good to answer in the form of a post. To be honest, I never had a […]

I’m back from vacation! But more about that on Monday… I have a little secret that I can’t keep to myself any longer. I wrote this write before I left but did not publish it because I did not know how things would go on my trip… It is part of my nightly routine to […]

This is a cross post on WATRD So next week my kids have spring break and we are all driving to Washington, D.C. for a family vacation. Normally I get uptight about being away from the comfort of my foods, food scale, etc, but this tme I feel more relaxed about it. I will bring […]

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m feeling really good for some reason. Good enough that I’m truly dabbling with the idea of not using my food scale and measuring cups for weighing and measuring, as well as not writing down my calories every day. I would be eating intuitively. This idea scared the crap […]

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 […]

So the class trip ended up being postponed due to the snow storm. I worried for nothing, but then, now I’m totally prepared for when the trip is rescheduled, so thanks everybody for your great suggestions! Other stuff…. On Thursday night I was sitting at my local pharmacy after a trip to the gynecologist. Without […]

Note to Self – No More Sugar Free Jello Pudding!

Nothing like learning a lesson the hard way. I bought a 6-pack of “double chocolate sugarfree jello pudding” at the market a week or two ago. I thought the 60 calories of chocolate pudding would be good for those chocolate cravings with little damage in the calorie department. I ate three of them over the […]

What is up with Tastykake Swiss Rolls?

I don’t know about you, but I grew up on Tastykakes. My favs were the chocolate iced, or the vanilla-with-the-chocolate-stripe iced, creme-filled cupcakes. I loved tandykakes too. The plain, not the peanut butter. I probably ate enough of them to single-handedly keep Tastykake in business. Due to my kids having off from school on Monday […]
