New Week Starting Out Well

Tuesday, March 06, 2007

Largely due to the two main challenges I'm participating in -- one on GOG and one on the Gardening Team -- I've really been faithful about exercising. Of course, part of that is working in the garden which I dearly love. I have a difficult time accepting it as "exercise." But, well, what can I say....Spark calls it exercise!

My eating stays consistently good as long as I'm at home. My problems come when I'm where I'm not in control, i.e., kids' houses. Even at restaurants, I know how to make good choices; but when you're in someone else's house, your choices are limited. I'll have to work on that one.


Tremendous Week!

Friday, March 02, 2007

I have been derelict in posting to this blog, but things have really been moving fast...

Last week I was sick most of the week, but that's done. This week has really been great! Between the Lenten Challenge on GOG and our May Day Challenge on the Gardening Team, I have really felt compelled to, primarily, GET THAT EXERCISE in each day!

The Gardening Team has just taken off, and I am so thrilled. I'm sure that the fact that Spring is just around the corner has something to do with it, but I also think it's because we're having fun! I surely hope so.


Whata Week!

Friday, February 16, 2007

Wow, this has been a week to remember! I agreed to take over the Gardening Team, and my goal was to get the topics on the threads reorganized--easier said than done! Thank goodness for my experience with You On A Diet, or I could never have done it. I do so appreciate, Matti, Sara, Bonnie and the others on that team!

Through all of this, I've done very well on my eating, not so well on the exercise--maybe this is because I've been at the computer almost every waking minute, and I don't eat at the computer, and I can't exercise. LOL!

Every week I tell myself that I'm going to get organized and back on track, but it still hasn't happened--well, as Scarlet O'Hara said, "I'll think about that tomorrow!"


Beautiful Day

Wednesday, February 07, 2007

I'm still having a hard time getting back on track after the big birthday weekend. So far, this morning, I've done well with my eating; but I'm still not exercising, and I definitely need to get back in the groove on that or this is never going to work.


Tough Week

Tuesday, January 30, 2007

This week has been a little tougher than usual. I'm not having any trouble staying with my eating plan, but my exercise has been non-existent.

We had two grandsons--3 and 4-year-olds--from Thursday night until yesterday; and they just about wear me out! It was too cold to let them go out and play very much, so we had to entertain them in the house most of the time. By the time my head hit the pillow at night, I was out like a light.

This weekend is DH's birthday party, and since this is a milestone, we've got a lot to do--expecting about 75 people and catering barbeque for the meal. Some folks coming in from out of town, and that's always stressful.

I'm really excited that I don't have any commitments next week, so I'm hoping to really get back on track.
