Fri, 18 Jan 2013 14:55:04 EST No Blog tonight - just tired http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5212338 All is well - I'm just tired - think I am fighting all this sickness going around (and winning!!!). <BR> <BR> Eating - high again on calories but weight is down a pound so far this week. <BR> <BR> Thu, 17 Jan 2013 23:43:15 EST Motivation faltering - maybe just the weather http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5210668 Calories over 3000 but still in Spark People range. <BR> No fitness center today. <BR> ########################### <BR> # January 16 <BR> ########################### <BR> 0 Fitness Minutes (Jan Total - 335) <BR> 3 Fruit (24) <BR> 7 hours of sleep (112) <BR> 1 day of tracking (14) <BR> 2 Fitness Center Visits (7) <BR> 0Weight Lost (7) {Weigh day is Sunday} <BR> <BR> ########################### <BR> # January Targets <BR> ########################### <BR> 1000 Fitness Minutes <BR> 75 se... Wed, 16 Jan 2013 21:22:59 EST Almost lost it - baby binge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5209089 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/4/4/l44942434.jpg"> <BR> Calories are high due to a baby binge after dinner. Not sure what happened but something just misfired in my head. Cookies and nuts and candy seemed like a really good idea. Half cup of Cashews, 2 snack packages of cookies and 3 snickers mini later I was done. I just wanted food - I know how Goldie (dog above) felt. BTW - the invisible fence worked great for Goldie! <BR> <BR> Calories for the day topped 3000 but sti... Tue, 15 Jan 2013 21:34:56 EST Calories high but a good day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5207518 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/7/l977868214.jpg"> <BR> Calories are high but worked out 70 minutes. <BR> Cocktail hour to celebrate a successful project was a minefield I managed to navigate. Had couple pieces of cheese, carrots, broccoli and about an ounce of chicken on a stick in some kind of sweet sauce. Instead of a couple glasses of beer or wine I had diet coke. Later at home - a smart one, 3oz chicken breast and frozen peas for dinner. <BR> <BR> Starting year out...
