I recognize these Blog posts

have about as much appeal as a Facebook update. Work is full on and I was on the computer all day today.

More tomorrow!

I cooked again...surely, a record!

And I went food shopping...and not at Duane Reade!

I know these posts are lame and short...more this week when the dust settles a bit.

Hmmm...today was a long day.

I can't go into details just yet, but some big plans were switched up so I found myself without any free time until right now. And all I want to do is go to sleep.

But I still need to get in something healthy...

So I thought of a Geneen Roth article I've been meaning to read and now I will make it my bedtime reading.

Sweet dreams!

Day # 2

I know it's late,
I know you're weary,
I know your plans don't include me...

So feel free to skip this post! :-)

My healthy act today was COOKING! Actually, I was more like a sous chef thanks to Amanda. We had a recipe called Brown 'Not Exactly Fried Rice’ With Chicken and Broccoli .

I have long said I want to learn to cook...could I be making good on that plan? Hope so!



ps - Thank you Tony...one of my goals is to get fit enough to go on a Rockland adventure with you. Dusty, your messages always brighten my day! And Connie, your ideas are awesome...thanks for being you!

Streak - Day # 1

I remember bragging to a friend about someone who lost a considerable amount of weight. Before this friend let me wax lyrical about this weight loss triumph, she asked me to take a moment and give equal pause for the effort it took to reach such a substantial starting weight. It was a joke of sorts, but the idea has stuck with me.

Gaining weight takes a lot of effort. I mean, it doesn’t happen overnight. I should know. I have been there. I have done that. Time and again.

Few people ask you for the secrets to gaining weight. There are many. And perhaps they are even as complex as the steps involved in losing weight.

My friend Dusty threw down the gauntlet in her Blog. She is a streaker. Dusty runs every day without fail. She challenged her friends to make their own daily commitment. I have tried this before and had some moderate success before puttering out.

So I am accepting Dusty’s challenge and preparing to become a streaker again. My daily commitment is to post to this Blog every day.

My topic will be weight…loss, gain, maintenance…whatever suits the given day.

My motivation is to turn my health around. My current weight is 207 pounds. I have gained 40 pounds since this time last year. The weight gain has wreaked havoc on my wardrobe (really, the plus-size clothing industry is in need of a serious overhaul), my dating life and it is starting to endanger my health.

I really appreciate the opportunity to share on this Blog. I hope it inspires me to maintain an integrity about honoring my health and finding a way to the fit and wonderful life that I know is waiting in the wings.

More tomorrow…
