Wrong to Right
This is the same thing I posted on the Balance Achieved thread in the I Matter team forum, so if you're a team member, you'll have probably already read this there.
I have been thinking, wow, I'm moving so much more than I used to, but get... Read more
There is a strange dynamic going on in my life right now. I'm guessing it's just adolescence making my (autistic) son do this, but...ok here it is:
Whenever I'm getting ready to exercise, he begins to "need" all these extra things. Like he ... Read more
Do More Right?
Until about a month ago, whenever I would forget to do my Sparkpeople spin for the day, I'd lose my streak, and it would make me mad. Mad that I forgot. Why? Why did I care so much? Today I came to the conclusion that maybe it was because it was... Read more
Yesterday I ate half a bag of Trader Joe's Booty (the cheesy poofs that are like fluffy Pirate's Booty). Yes. Half a bag. And that's not all. I won't list it all, but dang, I did it again. Fell off the balance board of life.
Why, when I do... Read more
Feb and stuff
Um, did anyone see where January went? And the weekend, what about that? I totally forgot to weigh in.
Wait, forgot or...knew it would be hideous? Yeah, my clothes have been feeling really tight for about 4 days. But the lack of weigh-in wa... Read more
I may be totally crazy, especially when I take into account how insecure I can be, but I've decided to create a new team. It's called "I Matter" and here's the link:
I've wanted to do this for ag... Read more
How Will I Spend the Next 8.5 Years?
Why 8.5 years? Well, I'm 51 and a half years old. In 8 and 1/2 years I'll be 60. And if I spend it the same way I've spent the LAST 8.5 years, I'm going to cross over the 200lb mark. It's totally conceivable. I move less than I used to, and eat ... Read more
I finally found a ropes course to try. I've been wanting to do this for years, ever since seeing it on TV weight loss shows, but could never find one close to me. But finally I was able to do one, and with my husband and son! My husband was relu... Read more
My 2-week update
Today is the end of the 2nd week of refusing to neglect myself (see my last blog).
What did this mean this week?
This week people asked me to do stuff in my home, on the phone, over email after the time I set aside for myself to exerc... Read more
How do I word this so it doesn't sound crazy? Because it feels anything but. I'll just say it, then I'll explain the rationale.
I refuse to neglect myself anymore. Not for one more day of my life.
Spending several days at... Read more
1/2 oz gorgonzola
10g (about 5 halves) walnuts
4g (large drizzle) fresh honey
total under 150 calories, but with so much flavor it was more satisfying than 150 calories of chips or something
yes, I just used the walnuts to scoop up... Read more
Only another Spark Person will understand this
I feel a bit silly about this, but not really. I have a Spark Tracker (AKA a SPAT), and we get trophies f... Read more
Getting caught in the numbers
Sometimes I get nuts with the fitness numbers. I'm a data miner at heart, and I love all the data that goes with trying to get and stay fit. Having said that, it's a trap for me. Let me explain.
I have the Spark Activity Tracker (also known... Read more
Changed my Intro Text
Today I updated my intro text on my Spark Page, and decided to also make it a blog. My last one was from 2013, and I'm ashamed to say I didn't make any positive progress on my health since then, except that my shoulder is 98% healed. That 2% is ... Read more
