Lady Sisyphus embarks on a 30-day journey to no added sugar. 9am. It is day three and I am one-tenth of the way into my no-added-sugar challenge.  Speaking of mileage, I am happy that I have put in 18 miles on my feet this week. There was a time when 18 would have represented the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Lady Sisyphus went running! Well, it was sort-of running. It was hot and I was tired and I had new shoes on and it was a new trail and…I exercised. Let’s leave it at that. As we have been packing and moving, I have lost all sense of routine the last few months. I’ve been […]

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 […]
