TGIF.... made it through another week...

Friday, August 19, 2011

It was tempting to call in sick today... the allergies caused me to be sluggish yesteray and at one point I thought I might fall asleep as was sorting hundreds of insurance forms....but then lunch time perked me up (a short walk to the Global Market to get my spring rolls)... today I am packing my lunch and so far have Greek yogurt, apple, 1/2 green pepper and a wonderful locally grown cucumber.

As far as the allergies go...I am trying generic Allegra and yesterday's sleepiness cannot be blamed on the medication as I had forgotten to take it until evening.

Hope the pollen count goes down a bit....

    The cooler and drier weather is headed your way and that should help. HUGS from South Dakota!

pretty good sleep last night

Thursday, August 18, 2011

Hope to get to bed earlier tonight than last night. I feel so much better with 8-9 hours and I think I may have gotten 7 hours last night.

I am so looking forward to the weekend and promise myself to sleep 9-10 hours Friday, Saturday and Sunday..... emoticon

    I didn't get that much sleep. Sometimes I sleep a lot and sometimes hardly any. Then when I try to sleep in the phone keeps waking me up

Sunday morning...gimme coffee...gimme sparkpeople...

Sunday, August 14, 2011

in that order...

Yesterday my blog announced my cancellation of my Weight Watchers membership which cost $40 a month. I am back to tracking my nutrition on SparkPeople and haven't got the hang of the new improvements in nutrition tracking here but I think it is better. I like free better than $40 and am going to religiously track my food intake and stay within my allotment. I might out of curiousity (and time on my hands?) compare WW points with the Spark plan....(a big "might" there...it will take time)...

Anyhow I am sure I will continue to lose...with 15 lb gone in the past 3 months I notice my clothes feeling more comfortable and not binding. My ankle swelling is improved even without bandaging every day. (Soon I will be getting my compression hose (knee highs) and that will help, also.)... I have been bandaging about every other day lately and things seem to be staying under control in the cankle dept.

So far today I have only had coffee with 1/4 cup milk...gotta go get something else....It's a new week....

    Just continue to do the best you can. 5 pounds a month is pretty good!

    Keep up the good job with tracking your nutrition, and congrats on the 15 pounds gone.

    I agree about the difference between $40 and free. Everything seems to going up in price and if you can save that much, go for it! You can make this work for you! Good luck!!

Cancelled Weight Watchers membership....

Saturday, August 13, 2011

I lost almost 15 lb in 3 months. I did learn one important thing...which I knew but needed to relearn....if I track my food I can lose weight....duh....

However, continuing to pay $40 a month for weight watchers compared to sparking for free doesn't make sense when my budget is tight.

Just have to track my nutrition and exercise on SparkPeople..... emoticon

    I did that too! I lost weight, but I tracked, and again...you can track here free! I love the spark tracker so much more! I was miffed when I hit my 125 favorites max on WW. I thought...NO WAY!! I am not keeping this! So here I am, back on SP full time!
