Been away from Spark for awhile, had overnight guests, doing a bunch of gardening. How that is an excuse? Well, the guests sleep downstairs where my computer is. And the gardening is so exhausting that I feel like that is my exercise for the day.

Spark Goals for today:
1. Weigh and record foods eaten.
2. Stay under 1800 calories.
3. Return to exercise ball.

Personal Goals for today:
1. Research parents' tax situation on internet.
2. Start parents taxes with Turbo tax
3. Call IRS: clarify question to ask them
4. Pay bills and straighten office papers

Wow, I had this totally healthy breakfast and it was 503 calories or some ridiculous amount. I guess 300 is unreasonable for breakfast.

Time to leave to take my mother to the doctor. This is getting to take over my life.

Wow, I was so proud of myself for eating healthily, but then when I added up the calories, it was 1200 and it is only 1pm. Look at my shared nutrition tracker. Oh well.....

  


Bird by Bird

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

I was 149 this morning, and I was reminded of the great book on writing called Bird by Bird. The author talks about her brother being overwhelmed by having to write a report on birds due the very next day. Her dad put his hand on his son's shoulder, and said, "buddy, just take it bird by bird". I love this little phrase. I am going to make it my mantra.

Today, I am eating dinner out with a friend. So, my goal for today is 300 calories for breakfast (already done) and 300 for lunch. I actually usually do not overeat with this friend, because we split a gourmet salad, we split a gourmet dessert, and take tastes of each other's entree.

Another gorgeous day, so I will go walk around the lake. Camera not a good idea, because it really slowed me down. Will try for 3 miles today. ( three times around)

1. Broke the 150 mark on scale. Was 149.5 this morning. Have not seen that ever, so very encouraged.

2. Sunny day, so motivated to go for walk around lake. Will take camera. And telephoto lens this time. So, have double motivation to go there.

3. Will be on my own for food today, no restaurant temptations, no dinners with others, so should be able to do 1500 calories. Let's check at the end of the day.
