Geared Up…

Geared Up… My first week of training is done! And tomorrow is a REST DAY!!! It’s been a week of experimenting and learning! Not only have I had to get up and out the door by 5:30 a.m. to get my workouts in before it gets too hot, I’ve had to be ‘technically – minded’. Something I don’t really have an interest in… I received two different ‘activity’ watches from two different friends so I didn’t have to spend money on electronics that might not work for me. The first was a Pebble watch; FitBit purchased them a while back and while there is...

I did it! One year without Sugar and Flour!!

Brain Tricks

Brain Tricks I haven’t written a blog for my 9 month anniversary for the “No Sugar, No Flour and mostly no Corn… Project”.   And it’s almost time for the 10 month anniversary blog!  And I still haven’t written a single word.  Until now. My topic was going to be on how to get excited about a long term goal that had become ordinary… because that’s how I’ve been feeling. And then, I saw an article entitled “Learning to combat your Brain’s brilliance which can have devastating effects on important long-term Goals”. (by G. Ciotti)   (see link below…I want you to read mine first…) In that blog, I learned I had...

When Normal doesn’t feel Normal

When Normal doesn’t feel Normal I just came back from a week in Calgary, Canada.  Though it wasn’t a vacation, it was certainly a change of pace and I enjoyed my time away.  Now that I’m back though, today I feel kind of misplaced, like going from a super busy, exciting schedule back to ordinary.  And somehow, ordinary doesn’t seem normal, anymore. And when normal doesn’t feel normal, it’s easy to slip back into default mode when it comes to healthy habits.  Reasons not to participate in activities that prior to vacation or the change in schedule were ‘non-negotiables’.  Like for me:  I have been back from Calgary for 5...

What if ….?

What if ….? I’ve been thinking about September 23, 2014. A lot. So why am I thinking about a day that’s still 5 months away? Because that’s the day it will be 1 year without sugar and flour and mostly no corn. The last day of my project to prove it can be done. No sugar and no flour for a whole year!!! So what’s the problem, right? I should be celebrating that I’ve made it 7 months and only have 5 short months to go! When I can have my cake and eat it too! Or a piece of toast with peanut butter and jelly. Or ice cream! But I’m afraid! I’m afraid that without my...

I’m just past the 6 month mark!

I’m just past the 6 month mark! I’ve been thinking about statements I’ve heard as I meet with clients using the word ‘just’.  Often, it’s right before the explanation for the lack of weight loss, or as a reason for reverting to old habits. I  just had a little bite… I just couldn’t stop thinking about it… so I gave in to the temptation. I thought if I just tasted it, my craving would go away… Since I noticed it with my clients, I’ve been monitoring my use of the word as well.  Usually it’s when I’m trying to justify something. A ‘forbidden’ food, or a late arrival, or why I arrived somewhere not all put together.   Almost...
