Bad day/good day

Monday, October 10, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday was the first day in 6 months that I haven't tracked food. I'm sure I ate too much, which isn't why I didn't track. I think it was because I spent the entire day doing our taxes which involved entering in 6 months of receipts and wadin... Read more

This morning we decided to go on a hike. Unfortunately we couldn't take the dogs and I was a bit too disorganised to get together a picnic but we had a great time. The place is about 20min away up in the state forest. There's a day area and camp... Read more

Much better day today. Got to do a cool surgery this morning, removed a fist sized lump from a horse's penis. I think there's probably still some tumour tissue there but I removed as much as possible. Hopefully the horse will cooperate with lett... Read more

I worked until lateish last night so didn't get up early to work out this morning. Fair enough, except that I was giving blood after work so forgot that meant I couldn't do anything after work. Doh! I normally am on call on monday night but... Read more

Six months ago I knew I could lose weight and more importantly I was finally ready to make the right choices to do it. I was unfit and unhappy. I am forever grateful that I found sparkpeople, I was just after a calorie counter but this site prov... Read more

In the last six months I've convinced my husband to go walking, hiking, riding and play tennis with me. Tonight I can add running with me to that list! I thought he was just going to walk the dogs while I ran but he decided to do the jogging por... Read more

How do you decide on what your goal weight should be? This is something I have put a lot of thought into over the past few months and have recently reset my tracker to reflect my ultimate goal of 62kg. So how do I know if this is the right weigh... Read more

Calorie Confusion

Saturday, September 24, 2011      2 comments

I am a bit confused about my recommended calorie range. I have noticed that when I changed my weight goal and date for that goal today that my calorie range changed. It is from 1300 to 1700 roughly. This seems fairly appropriate although possibl... Read more

Summer is just around the corner here. For the first time in my life I'm living somewhere I prefer winter to summer. In winter it is a perfect temperature for exercising and sunny almost every day. In summer it is often 32-40 (90s to 100F) and h... Read more
