New beginnings - my future

Monday, December 26, 2011

The day after Christmas 2011. Just finished the dishes and cleaned the sink, put away some baking pans etc.
Cleaned a guinea pig cage, doing some piggie laundry.
Off to take a shower and get ready to go pick up my mom in Vacaville from her time with Mitchell and his family for Christmas.

I really enjoyed the two days with just Claire and I and the animals. Would love to have 3-4 days by myself at home alone with the animals.

New behaviors start today.


What can I track? Its amazing how motivating this is

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

The bigger picture - My health has many components. What and when I eat, the amount and type of movement (exercise) I engage in, how much and the quality of my sleep, do I drink enough water? There are others too.

I keep mentioning this website to people, and tell them how easy it is to use. Now its time for me to really explore how to use as many of the features here as I can to help me get healthier and stay that way. I LOVE that I can run the reports and print them out for my own use and for my doctor to see.

So, I've added some custom measurements: how long do I sleep, do I use my C-Pap, take my vitamins and Omegas.

In the notes section of the nutrition tracker, I'm adding the times I eat.
Maybe I should move the vitamins and Omegas to this section? We'll see.

I'm walking the 15 minutes to the Transit Mall three days a week in the morning. And choosing to walk the 15 minutes back home 3-4 days a week in the evening. The pedometer will be part of my accessories kit again.

Maybe I should even add my dog's weight to what I track. emoticon


Starting out - slowly

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

Well, apparently I'm starting out very slowly - at least I'm starting though.
I joined Spark the week before Christmas 2010, and this is my first day of getting into the site, teams, etc.
Today my activity goals are to walk my dog for 30-45 minutes, rake the leaves outside (dang sycamore tree!!) and get some housework done.
My reward will be hopefully finishing a knitting project, so I can start a new one for a friend.
Will let you know how it goes today.
