My Christmas in Pictures

December 31, 2018

I’m back from a week in Michigan for Christmas, and spent lots of great quality time with family. I was determined to stay focused on my health and fitness all week, and made lots of wonderful choices, and some not-so-wonderful ones, too. I’ll get into all of that, but first… SANTA!

That’s Lynn on the right. Our families have been Read the rest of this entry »

Merry Christmas, and KEEP IT UP All The Way to 2018… and Beyond!

December 21, 2017

I haven’t had much time to write this week, and don’t foresee my schedule opening up in the near future, but I wanted to put together a short little something and wish everyone a wonderful holiday season.

Please allow me to express my gratitude as well: I’m in my Read the rest of this entry »


HAPPY NEW YEAR! And… Christmas in Michigan, Part Two: Exercising Like a Lunatic

January 1, 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR! The new year excites me, because it means my anniversary is in a few weeks. I’ll soon be starting my SEVENTH year on my weight loss journey, and I’m still going strong. I’m so proud that I’ve lost 160 pounds and kept it off for two-thirds of a decade!

Christmas In Michigan, Part One: I Ate Too Much Food

December 29, 2016

I’m back in California after a wonderful week celebrating Christmas in Michigan. Usually I’m good about eating well while traveling, but this time I ate too much. I also exercised like a maniac (more on that in my next post), so I’m not wallowing in guilt or regret. I enjoyed good food with friends and family, and I’m already back on track with my healthy habits.

Can I start with a brag? My cheese board skills are ON POINT:

Christmas in Cozumel

December 28, 2015

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! My Christmas was muy excellente – I spent the week with my entire family in Mexico. It was a fun-filled, busy, active week… although there was still plenty of hammock time.

A Successful Christmas!

December 26, 2014

ONLY 363 SHOPPING DAYS LEFT UNTIL CHRISTMAS!

Before I start thinking about Christmas 2015, I’m gonna reflect on Christmas 2014. It was a great one. And, food-wise, the highlight of the day was definitely Christmas dinner:

I’m Gonna Be Smart on Christmas Day

December 22, 2014

Another major holiday is upon us, and, if your family is anything like mine, there will be lots of food around. That’s why I’m recycling my Thanksgiving Pledge and using it this Thursday. In a nutshell, it provides some parameters so I can eat whatever I want, without beating myself up afterward.

I’m making one big change, though, Read the rest of this entry »
