Random Thoughts

Today I have a bunch of random thoughts to share... in no particular order...

  • I'm reading three books on health and nutrition... One blames sugar, one blames fat, and one purports to tell me how to develop a healthy relationship with food. I will share via a book report.
  • I have come to the realization that like to exercise... but only in the pool. I need to get over this idiosyncrasy sometime before winter. It will get too cold to swim, at least for a month or two.
  • One should be careful when adding a new type of fiber into one's daily caloric adventures. Such switches are also best saved for non-work days.
  • Being told that my abundant fat cells will shrink, but never go away, makes me very very cranky and also makes me want to start saving for liposuction.
  • I no longer crave ice cream. Ever. I even gave myself permission to get a cup of it at the grocery store yesterday. I passed on it. I stood and drooled in front of the Doritos, but passed on them as well. I never have permission to buy chips.
  • Being stuck on a weigh loss plateau no longer makes me go insane like it used to... I'm getting very zen about the whole issue. I mean, I don't eat enough to actually gain fat. Therefore, there isn't much to worry about. Besides, I have muscles. That has to count for something.
  • I work in a really great place. I couldn't ask for more supportive co-workers. When someone has a crisis or a problem, everyone pitches in to lend a hand. It is quite amazing.
  • I absolutely love all of my readers and followers and comment-leavers and supporters. You make this a most enjoyable journey. Someday I will figure out how to properly reward all of you for your patience with me!
  • I believe that anyone who puts their mind to it can lose weight, gain muscle, and find fitness.


  1. Haha! Thanks for the fiber warning. I wish I could say I didn't crave the food I'm not supposed to crave. I'm not looking forward to winter exercise at all. It means I'll have to stop walking trails and start going to the gym.

  2. I'm on the same road to 150...100 lbs more to go so I'll be traveling with you for a while.... I like the way you think
    and write... and am really enjoying your blog!
