Day 9-10-11: Can I Start Over? Yes I Can!

June 19, 2012


Lady Sisyphus embarks on a 30-day journey to no added sugar. A friend posted a piece from the Forks Over Knives website. The title pulled me in, “Does Willpower Hold the Key to Your Success?” I don’t know. Does it? I read it. I sighed. Same old. Same old. It’s all about choices. I know […]

Day 7: Laziness Leads to Failure

June 14, 2012


Day seven was a complete failure. Sure, it had some bright spots but overall – it’s time to pull the plug on it. Too much sugar. Not enough vegetables. Not enough real food. This is my food journey. Rinse and repeat. It started with a visit with a friend. She is a cook and had […]

Day 6: More of the Same Laziness

June 13, 2012


Lady Sisyphus embarks on a 30-day journey to no added sugar. Day six was okay. It wasn’t stellar but it wasn’t a total loss. I started off with a great five mile run/walk in the morning. I ran (almost literally) into a posse of older women on bikes. Always inspiring. Foodwise, it was more of […]

Day 2, Part 2: I Can Do Anything! Well Today I Can…

June 8, 2012


Lady Sisyphus’ 30-day journey to no added sugar. 2:40pm. I am doing fine. I even turned down a brownie. I’ve had no added sugar today. Yet… 4:30pm. Here I am. It is my witching hour, the hour(s) when sugar and processed foods call to me like sirens. I drank water, had a cheese stick and […]

Pushing Sugar Stones

June 7, 2012


One of the benefits of temporarily living in a fully furnished apartment is the magazines. The last time I read a women’s magazine was when I visited my friend and she thoughtfully deposited some in the guest room. I devoured them!  So while I am not enjoying the transition of our impending move, I am […]

I Jumped the Shark

June 4, 2012


Lady Sisyphus has been preoccupied. We have been in the midst of a job-related move since February. I’d like to say that I’ve been the model of healthy living by eating well and exercising often. But I haven’t. Help me, Jesus. I started on this journey way back in January 2008. I signed up for […]

It’s Half-Time in the Sisyphus Household

February 12, 2012


Lady Sisyphus is about to embark on a new adventure! That’s me trying to be positive. This past week, the Sisyphus family decided to upend the life we’ve known.  In a few short months we will begin a trek to put down roots in another part of the country, one we are unfamiliar with. Lord […]
