Pizza Night

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Not exactly a mistake, just a perhaps less than optimal choice. It had been a long, hard week. I haven't been feeling topnotch. Not much in the house and I didn't feel like cooking, much less shopping first. When DH suggested a pizza night, I went with it, quickly. I stuck to 2 slices and didn't stuff myself so all in all not too bad. Pizza nights need to exist occasionally in my life--deprivation would cause more issues long term.


Chocolate in the house

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

There is good dark chocolate sitting in the cupboard. I had one square Monday night and stopped. It's not calling my name as strongly as it used to.


Food means love

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Sunday, DH started his holiday baking with napoleons which he kept reminding me go back to the very early days of our relationship (over 40 yrs ago). Best I could do was have a couple of bites and stop.


Home again

Saturday, October 27, 2012

Got home last night. Feeling better about the experience than usual but still could have been better. Did get in 2 good gym sessions in Charlotte and Minneapolis so have my 3 for the week. Food choices were pretty good but options weren't always great. Weight shows up over a pound this a.m. but hopefully most of that's bloat. I will be really happy if I'm around 150 at next Thursday's weigh in as it will mean a solid 5 pounds gone during October.

Today I've progressed to stage 3 of the SparkDiet--lifestyle changes. My first assignment is to think about and write down my underlying goals. This is truly easy for me--I'm 68 and I refuse to become a crippled up little old lady. I'm losing weight, eating better and working out to be healthy, fit/strong and energetic. Of course looking better is a nice perk! Had a nice NSV yesterday when the flight attendant who offered to help lift my suitcase into the overhead compartment tried and then looked around for more help, saying "This is heavy". So I grabbed it and lifted while she just guided and then she said "You're stronger than I am". Even my husband commented when he grabbed the suitcase out of my car when I got home "Either your suitcase is getting heavier or I'm getting weaker"--and he's in terrific shape with many younger friends at the gym calling him their role model.


Heading Out

Monday, October 22, 2012

It's not even 3:30am and I just finished breakfast--heading to the airport soon for a 6am flight, and it's raining, darn it. Hope I can sleep on the plane as I feel exhausted.
