I have been tracking the amt. of time, the number of miles & the type of activity but I can't find the figure that says how many TOTAL miles I have ridden since June 9th. Any suggestions? It is almost 11:00, so I will be off to bed soon...Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>38</em> Fri, 24 Jun 2016 22:52:02 EST Oooops...missed another day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6188515 Not sure how I did it but I did not blog yesterday. The good news is I am back riding my bike as of Mon. Tues. Wed. & today. The temps have been hot, but I have been riding early in the morning.

I went to bed way too late last night & woke up AFTER 1:00 P.M. pretty much lost half of my day. I have BIG plans to get to bed by 11:00 & be ON my bike by 8. That;s the plan. I need to get off this laptop.

I ate a healthy breakfast but went to a Memorial service out of town & my lunch was a bunch of stuff that was served at the reception... somewhat hard to track. I was gone almost 12 hrs. today, had a milkshake on the way home, but just had protein for dinner. Am anxious to get back in the groove & back to my bike riding.

I have decided that I need to blog EARLIER in the day...as sometimes in the eve. I forget to blog about my day...I guess that I usually like to wait until I have completed my meals for the day before checking in...Something else that I have been thinking about is...way back when...my every thought, my every plan...revolved around where & when I would have my next meal or snack...almost like a junkie...always worried about... Fri, 17 Jun 2016 20:56:56 EST A Hot Wednesday... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6183742 I was already to take my bike ride this morning, but instead the hard rain storm deterred me...but only for about 30 min. I actually considered heading for the local Sr. Ctr. to work out on the bikes there & then the rain stopped. I was glad, but OMG was it hot & humid. I had hoped that the rain had cooled things down, but it was even more muggy. I managed to get in another 10 miles in about 80 minutes. I don't try to set any records with my time...in fact I enjoy short stops to visit with my...

The weather was gorgeous & I took off on my bike & managed to get in 10 miles before the heat hit me. I did pretty well with my food choices but maybe didn't eat enough...I am tired so I am going to head for bed & get my Beauty Sleep. BTW...Mr. Scale smiled at me today...happy to be down 24 lbs. since April 1st...Thank you to all my SP friends for their support...Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>102</em> Tue, 14 Jun 2016 00:56:51 EST Another Good but Busy Day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6181739 Got up early this morning & rode my bike 8.1 miles, tacked my food & weighed in.

I played euchre at the local Sr. Ctr. & ate way too much junk food. My girlfriend & I went out to dinner & to the early show & again, I made some pretty poor food choices...all in all, it was NOT the day that I had intended. So I plan to be "back at it" tomorrow. Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>39</em> Fri, 10 Jun 2016 23:27:25 EST FINALLY...Exercise... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6179878 Not sure WHY, but this morning I decided that I would get my recumbent bike out & take a ride. The weather was beautiful & I really enjoyed getting out. I have to admit...the first time I pressed down on the pedal, I thought that my right knee would pop, but by the end of my 5.5 mile ride, my knees weren't bothering me at all. I took my time (52 min.) & spoke with many of my neighbors. My plan is to ride every day & try to increase my mileage each day. As the weather gets warmer, I will need ... Thu, 9 Jun 2016 21:02:46 EST Wed. a Weird Day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6179323 Got up early...took my husband for his colonoscopy...all good news. The weird/funny part of my day...I cut my finger opening a bottle of Benadryl...then I cut my elbow on the toilet roll dispenser at the doctor's office & then as I "strolled" through the lobby of the office, I noticed a tag on my new capris... showing the size & price...made me LOL. I have made some pretty good food choices today & was excited to talk to the doctor today & brag. I have lost a total of 23 lbs. (15 lbs. since I...

My husband is having a colonoscopy tomorrow & I found myself not eating too much either...I might grab something quick before I go to bed so that I will be able to sleep without getting up because I'm hungry...I'll probably still have to pee a zillion times...haha...Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>4</em> Tue, 7 Jun 2016 21:27:15 EST Monday, Monday...a good day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6177942 I did not sleep well last night, as I was up 3X a night to the bathroom to pee. Because I was meeting some friends for an early lunch, I did not eat breakfast. Had a good solid meal & enjoyed my girlfriends. The scale smiled at me this morning which was good news too. I started out at 260 lbs. on April 1st & today, I weighed in at 237.4...Yes, I am pleased. Well, here it is...well after 9:00 P.M. & am still on my laptop. So with that, I will sign off.

I feel good this evening...haven't probably had enough calories today. That's OK...I had plenty yesterday. Had lots of water today & stayed busy. It wasn't until about 5:00, I could hear/feel my stomach rumbling...I had not had lunch...not a good habit. ANYway, I seem to be sleeping better, so that always helps. Take care & have a good week... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>41</em> Sun, 5 Jun 2016 21:48:10 EST One Day shot to H... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6176584 Not even going to even track my food today or make excuses...Had a great time with my son & visiting my sister & her family in Indy, but it was a food fest & I did NOT do well...Period <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>29</em> Sat, 4 Jun 2016 22:11:18 EST Where did the day go? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6176073 I got to bed late, but got up earlier than I planned. I hit the ground running...skipped past breakfast & ended up eating my first meal of the day, closer to noon. Showered, went to the Kroger & finally ate my dinner meal at about 5:00 but I barely have had 600 calories. Hope that hunger does not keep me awake tonight. My son is here visiting me, from W.Va. & I am trying to continue staying ON the wagon...

I am typing as fast as I can, but it is already past midnight, but I still think of it as Wed. I went to a BFD retirement ceremony/reception this afternoon & ate way too much food, some junk food. This eve. I went to a friend's house & continued to eat more junk food. I will probably pay for it tomorrow. It was like my daughter, Jan-Marie once said to me...something to the effect..."If you get a flat tire, t... Thu, 2 Jun 2016 00:10:39 EST A Pretty Good Day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6174054 I went to bed last night at 11:30 & slept till almost 10:00...howEVER...I was up 4-5X to pee. It seems like it was almost every hour, so needless to say...I was tired all day. As a favor, I went to an elementary school to do a reading to a Kindergarten class...my friend's son was in the class, but she was unable to be there. Her son was Student of the Week, so it was important that I filled in for his Mom. It was a fun experience & I enjoyed my time with the kids. Somehow, once again, I misse... Tue, 31 May 2016 22:16:52 EST Memorial Day Monday 2016 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6173290 I have had a pretty quiet weekend...no cookouts...which right now, has been a big help. No need to try & figure out the calories, because someone else prepared it. I ran around today doing errands & stayed busy...didn't mean to, but missed lunch. I basically stripped the shelves & coolers at the Kroger this afternoon of all good & healthy food, so I am looking forward to some good meals this week. Take care & have a good week... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>30</em> Mon, 30 May 2016 20:14:16 EST Close Call with a Jar of Peanut Butter... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6172711 Last night I fell into several bad habits...I stayed up way too late & I decided that I was going to just sit down with a jar of PB with a tablespoon & also have some pretzels. What was I thinking...guess that I wasn't. I was tired, bored & just felt like a "closet eater" Went to bed, after 2 A.M. & then slept in till 11:00...felt hungover this morning. Half my day was over, so I tried really hard to get back in the groove & did pretty well. My dear husband is pretty agreeable about the "love...

Weighed in, tracked my food, drank lots of water & finished my "get the deck furniture out & clean it" project. It was hot out & I felt like I was exercising. <BR> <BR> JANEY Sat, 28 May 2016 23:59:29 EST Missed a Day but here I am... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6171598 I am feeling pretty good today...had a long good night's sleep. Tracked my food, weighed in & lost a lb. Just in case you are wondering...it wasn't the scale that put a smile on my face. I'm just happy that I made healthy food choices & I kept food portion size in mind. I decided not to play euchre today (not an easy decision). Instead I helped my husband with getting out the rest of the deck furniture...he scrubbed part of the deck. We are both sore...hope that I can move tomorrow. I have be... Fri, 27 May 2016 21:08:48 EST Not a pretty day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6170365 These are all excuses, but today, I did not make healthy food choices & I'm just so disappointed with myself. I didn't go crazy, I just need to get back in my groove & structure my schedule better. I am too tired to continue blogging. At this point I just need to go to bed & start anew tomorrow. Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>24</em> Wed, 25 May 2016 20:45:13 EST Missed 3 days of blogging...gained 4 lbs. I believe there is a connection... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6169170 I did not fall off the wagon, but I have not blogged since Thursday. Anything that I'd say would be just excuses. I hit the Kroger hard today & am back on the scene. The best Sparkpeople tools that work for me are...weighing in daily...tracking my food...blogging...drinking a minimum of 8 glasses of water... getting 7-8 hrs. of sleep...food portion & eventually...soon...exercise will be added...That is all for now. I need to head for bed & get my beauty sleep... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>24</em> ...

I feel lousy but I am not jumping off the wagon...just tired & disgusted. Plan to go to bed early. I have another long 12 hour + day tomorrow, so my plan is to absolutely eat healthy food, watch portion control & to take three breaks tomorrow & WALK around the perimeter of the property which is about a mile. It is supposed to be nice weather, so I have no excuses. I have not tracked my food yet tod...

My husband & I went to the Waffle House this morning. For me, that will be a ONCE a YEAR activity...the food all tasted heavy & greasy...I only had 2 scrambled eggs, 2 sausage patties, 2 slices of raisin bran & a small glass of OJ. I did not have any lunch & had a late dinner...I fixed some Tilapia fish (yuck...I think that I will stick to flounder) & some veggies. I am tired & plan to get to bed earlier this eve. I am still down 20 lbs. this morning but I did g... Wed, 18 May 2016 21:01:47 EST Tuesday again... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6165223 I stayed up till 2:00 A.M. last night...not a smart move...but fortunately, because I am an old retired fart, I could sleep in. Unfortunately my bladder was up 3X, so I was very tired when I crawled out of bed at almost 11:00 (almost 9 hrs. but interrupted sleep). My day got better when I got on the scale...I remember when I was a lot younger & when I turned 31, I said...OMG, I am IN my thirties...when the scale read 239.6, I said OMG, I'm IN my thirties. Back on April 4th, I weighed 260 lbs....

I so appreciate all the wonderful supportive comments & suggestions that I received after my Not-So-Good day on Sunday. I had a much better day today...ate healthy & a lot less. I was floored to find 1 less lb. on the scale this morning..I think my body must have worked overtime to get rid of all that fat..haha. ANYway, it is almost 1:30 so I better head for bed & get my Beauty Sleep, Take care. <BR> <BR> JANEY... Tue, 17 May 2016 01:20:43 EST Did a lot of Wrong stuff today... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6163584 I did not sleep well last night...had an early full breakfast, knowing that I had a busy day. Went to church with a friend & ended up having lunch much earlier in the day than I usually do. We went to O'Charley's & I let TWO rolls WITH butter suck me in...I wasn't all that hungry & I still had the Ultimate Omelet (which is 4 eggs +). I should have quit RIGHT there...but I didn't. Later in the day, with the same friend...went to her daughter's piano recital. There were some delicious cookies &... Sun, 15 May 2016 18:26:54 EST I Need More Balance... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6163043 Once again, I put off eating breakfast & had a late lunch instead. It wasn't a real busy day & as a result, I found myself eating when I wasn't even hungry. I had a total of 1,213 calories, but 730 of them were snacks. Even though I stayed within or below my nutrition ranges, I still feel like I could have made better food choices...& tomorrow is a NEW day & I shall do better...Take care everyone & enjoy the rest of the weekend... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>211</em> Sat, 14 May 2016 21:01:11 EST Friday the 13th... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6162427 I found myself saying OMG...here comes Friday the 13th, but today was a pretty good day...I sort of put off breakfast till later as I had to be somewhere at 12:00 & I figured that there would be a lot of not so good food choices...but surprise...there was hardly ANY food there...no big choices to be made. Came home & had a late lunch & dinner & stayed within or below my nutrition ranges. Hoping to sleep better tonight. Take care & have a good weekend. <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>41</em> Fri, 13 May 2016 21:48:04 EST Mr. Scale Still Winking at Me... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6161808 Really surprised...down almost another pound...260 on April 4th & 241 this morning. I find myself dreading the day (probably soon) that I get on the scale & it just sort of stays there & there's no more losing that day. I know that it is not that big of a deal...it's not about the numbers. I have heard that it is not good to weigh yourself every day, but it seems to help me stay on course. I had two snacks today that were pretty "pricey" but I still stayed within my nutrition ranges. Maybe I'...

I feel more like I keeping a journal or a diary, rather than helping any SP people. I really need to take the time to read other blogs & help others w/supportive comments. I so appreciate all the wonderful SP support & I need to give back more...I will make that one of my goals...I am now down 18.6 lbs. & thrilled. Hope that you all are having a good...

I basically did laundry & tried to get back in the groove. Was pleased with another lb. down today..not sure, but I must be doing something right..I'm just glad that eating healthy is becoming a pretty good way of life. I miss my sweets, but the fresh fruit helps. Hope that everyone had a great weekend & will have a good week.
