Reactivation in Progress
Three more days of vacation before it's time to get back to work. I haven't been a total slug, but I've been enjoying doing what I want to do when I want to do it. Monday I'll be back at my desk paying bills, creating budgets and settling show... Read more
One Step in Front of the Other
I haven't been very active here on SparkPeople, but that doesn't mean I haven't been active at all. I spent all of last year training for a big hiking trip that really helped to make physical activity a regular part of my day. To keep it going... Read more
Getting Back to My Feet
Well, here I go... really trying to give it another valiant effort. For awhile it really became for me an exercise in futility and I gave in to the frustration that goes along with it. Coming back from a really terrific, life-affirming weekend... Read more
Okay, my mom asked me today if I was mad about something when I went to pick up my pup Nildė at their house last night. No, I told her -- I was ravenous!
I went right from work to choir rehearsal last night without stopping for a meal - an... Read more
So Far So Good
Day 1 finished well -- I made it to Curves and had a healthy dinner. Day 2 is going well so far. I managed not to be tempted by the Krispe Kremes at the gas station-quickie mart at all. Maybe I'm finally ready to stick with it?? ... Read more
Dusting Off the Cobwebs
Well, it's been since last spring since I posted any blogs here, and I can tell! I haven't held myself truly accountable since then, and I really need to get back on track. I can wail and moan all I want about working out and eating right, but... Read more
And no... I don't mean eating waffles, although that does sound a lot better than the yogurt I'm eating for lunch. I'm just at a point where I'm working out, but not as regularly as I want or should... I'm eating a lot better (hence the yogurt)... Read more
Here We Go Again!
Like everyone else this week, I've re-committed to a healthier lifestyle. Curves has been going very well ('til I got sick last month, but I did attempt to go as much as possible) -- I've consistently made it 3x week for at least 21 weeks in a ... Read more
Okay, the exercise is under control. I've made going to Curves a habit and havne't missed a session since I began in July.
But the scale said I gained 3 lbs this morning. It could just be water -- I HOPE so! But I'm not losing any weight... Read more
Well, Mom and I had our first weigh-n-measure at Curves over the weekend and our stats were pretty good! I lost only about an inch and a half total, which I was a little surprised that it wasn't more, but at least it's a loss! :-)
As for ... Read more
No budge on the scale yet, but at least it's not creeping north... Week 4 of Curves began this week -- we'll have a weigh-in and measure on Friday. Eager to see how my measurements have changed since the scale has not.... Read more
Thanks to my friend Frink for sending me in the right direction. I'd forgotten that breaking down the long-term goal is the best way to find a short-term goal. So, that said... my first goal is 10lbs, which is a 5% goal. Now, as far as a time... Read more
Setting a Goal
I haven't set a definite goal yet. I have a weight goal in mind -- 50lbs - but I don't have anything specific as far as a timeline or short-term goal. I'm always leery about putting it down -- it gives me an "out" if I don't make it, but that'... Read more
No News - Just Hangin' Tough
Nothing really on my mind today. Just hanging in there. Curves tonight!... Read more
Voices in my Head
Okay, Curves is going great! Though the initial excitement is waning enough that I'm feeling it -- lol!
It's my sweet tooth talking to me that's working on me right now. It's a bad habit I got from my grandma, I think. I always want a li... Read more
