Hot Lunch Right at Your Desk

Hey gang! I made a purchase last week that I wanted to share with all of you desk jockeys out there who might not have access to a microwave or a kitchen (or a clean one, anyway). Where I work, I do have access to a break room with an old used microwave, but it is in another building about…

Plan of Attack

I’ve mentioned here several times that I’ve been working with a personal coach for weight loss – she also is a Registered Dietitian and she is fabulous. We’ve been working together for nearly 6 months and in that time, I’ve learned a lot. I also started losing weight, albeit slowly but I was okay with that. I had gotten down…

Noticing

I noticed a few things over the weekend – some delighted me, some bothered me.  First the delightful: I have reached that sweet spot where I am now cognizant of the fact that good food makes me feel good, and not only that, my taste buds prefer it.

I had a fantastic birthday celebration with my family on Saturday, right after my husband and I and…

Where’s a hippie when you need one?

I took this quiz this morning and the result is that I am the Hulk, which pretty much sums up my mood for the last, oh I’d say, 6 months. Yes, most of the time I feel like a big green Rage Machine. It’s lovely to be me. I used to be full of optimism and light-heartedness, but now I…

Two are better than one.

A few months ago after an annual health evaluation, my husband discovered he has hypertension and high cholesterol. He’s been working with our family doctor to lower these numbers and for several weeks he made a half-hearted attempt at eating better to avoid going on medication. It didn’t work. He is now on medication for both high blood pressure and…
