About Me

I'm an elementary school teacher. I love movies. I have a cat I love almost as much as my 2 best friends who I love more. We're all going to lose weight together (cat too) to get healthy and stop hating the way we look.

  • I hope things work out for you.  That’s pretty much it.  Everything has pros and cons.  It’s just a matter of what pros you want and if the cons are worth it 🙂

  • I haven’t tried it but I’ve been thinking about it, too.  The membership looks good. I think as long as you can cancel it at any time, it wouldn’t hurt to try it out.  I’ll need to look into whether or not that’s possible and if people say it’s tough to cancel even if it’s allowed.  I hope it’s good!

  • I think they’re the same.  It’s just if you want energy or not.  THere are benefits to the added caffeine. If you are sensitive to it, there are disadvantages, too. I say drink the one you like. YOu’ll get the same health stuff from it.

    Have you seen those little manuka honey packets they have that you just fold in half and they snap and you squish the honey out? They give you instant blood sugar and energy with a lot of other healthy components.  I love them when I travel. I think they’re from Wedderspoon but I might have the spelling wrong.  They’d probably work well for you s…[Read more]

    I think I’m dehydrated in the summer. It’s making me bloated so it looks like I’m gaining, not losing. I really don’t think Im’ gaining fat, just water. Do I just keep drinking more? Is there something else I should do?

  • I think it’s a personal preference if they’re good for running.  I think I would find it hard with my heel hitting asphalt without the additional cushioning, but if you’re running on a softer surface, I bet it would be fine.  You’ll need to learn a whole new gait though.

  • I’ve worn mine for a couple of years and love them. I started using them for outdoor yoga. Then I just found they were so comfortable I just wanted to keep using them. I wouldn’t be able to know if they’re for everyone, but I definitely love them in the summer.

  • Just eat the stalk part and not the leaves. Some people think the leaves are toxic. I don’t know if that’s true, but why risk it?

    Rhubarb is high in fiber, vitamin c, vitamin k, manganese, potassium and other vitamins and minerals.

    A lot of people think you need to add sugar, but I don’t. I just cook it down in a bit of water in a pan until it’s…[Read more]

    I’ve wondered the same thing. Thanks for asking that question. I feel a bit better about looking into them now. I don’t mind getting a good workout, but I don’t want to be the only one in a class who can’t even remotely come close to doing the basics.

  • I understand your struggle. I’ve had casual/fashion shoes recommended to me for athletic purposes, too.  Just because they look like running shoes, it doesn’t mean they have the right features.  It would be great if stores would just allow their sales people to say that they don’t know the answer, instead of making something up.  It makes me le…[Read more]

  • Good idea, Penny4T.  I wouldn’t have thought of that.  I hope it keeps working for you.  Can you make the weights heavier as you get stronger?

  • Thanks! That’s so fantastic.  I’ve found them online, but I can’t figure out what my prescription would be, so I’m going to have to ask my optometrist.  This is great.  They’re so inexpensive!

  • why don’t you let it earn you stuff.  Think of something you want to do – something small, but that you like – and then make a rule that you can’t do it until you’ve done your strength training workout.  Make sure that you knwo that you need to do your workout with effort, not just going through the motions.  I personally use dessert as mine.  If…[Read more]

  • A good friend of mine asked me a question that I really don’t know the answer to.  She struggles to see at the pool because she has a high prescription.  Are there goggles that you can get that give you prescription vision but that don’t cost what glasses cost? I mean for people who swim on occasionally, not professional athletes.  Is that out there?

  • I’m glad I’m not the only one with doubts. I don’t want to be a bad sister by thinking those things about the plan she’s chosen.  But it just looks so unrealistic to me that I really don’t think this is good for her. I hope she moves through this phase quickly so she can get into something better.

    I think envirotodd’s got it.  PRetty much you have to go for it unless you can run in a field or on a track, make sure you’ve got the right shoes and socks. your socks are as important as your shoes.  And make sure you run right.

  • My sister is doing Plant Paradox.  She read the book cover to cover (she’s one of those really dedicated people) and loves it and says it makes complete sense to it. From everything I’ve seen online, it’s controversial at best and nothing says that lectins are actually toxic the way the Plant Paradox says it is.  Is my sister on to something or d…[Read more]

  • I think I really have to jump on with talking to your doctor or dietitian. I hate it when people say that to me about my questions, but really when you want to change your food and you have a medical condition that is going to be affected by it, it’s really probably the best thing.  I promise not to get mad at you if you answer that to me if I…[Read more]

  • If you’re just going to a beginner class it really likely won’t matter too much what you wear as long as you can move around.  Even if you showed up dressed for a yoga class instead of a tai chi class, nobody is going to yell at you.

  • It’s something gradual and personal.  Everyone faces their own unique challenges.  It may start affecting you earlier or later.  Age does affect weight because of things such as lost muscle mass and hormones though.
