Long time no write... I've been slacking off on my SP participation and tracking for several months, but now I'm back! I'm tracking my calories because I'm on a "pregnant" diet for the next six months. Yey!
It turns out that when you're ea... Read more
Hello all, thanks so much to those of you who haven't seen a blog post from me in so long, but still keep checking up on me!
Just wanted to post and let you know that I'm doing okay out here, I've just been so busy this summer that I've had... Read more
Hello and Happy 4th of July holiday for all my U.S. Spark friends!
I've been pretty busy these past few weeks, but I have been faithfully tracking my food and exercise here on SP. I've had a few breaks lately that have allowed me to be more... Read more
Fewer and Farther Between
I've been absent more and more lately... lots of work... summer activities are already in full swing (and it's still technically spring!)... I'm working out more, FINALLY!... etc. I've continued getting into SP every day or so to log ... Read more
A couple quick things for the week:
1) BIG error in last week's blog... I was shooting for 1500 calories burned, NOT 1500 minutes of exercise. HUGE difference there. Yipes.
2) THANKS for everyone's encouragement and pep talks... Read more
Okay, so I've just spent three weeks having almost no discipline in my exercise and my eating. Before that, I took three weeks off for travel. Before that, I completed ten weeks of barely keeping up with my exercise and barely making my calorie... Read more
Not much to add since last week's post, other than UGH. I had a "weak" week... I didn't meet my exercise or my calorie goals. I was lazy in my discipline, and looking at the scale this weekend was a wake-up call.
Keep your fingers and toes... Read more
Hello Spark Friends!
Back again after almost five weeks, and a lot has happened. First of all, a Belated Happy Easter to all my fellow SP Christians, and second of all, a Welcome to Spring along with all my fellow SP North Americans! I hope... Read more
Long time no blog...
HELLO and THANKS to all of you who are still checking in on me! I've been sorely short on time in 2009, so to fit in calorie tracking and exercise (and not enough touching base with my SP friends!), I've kept up at the expense of blogging and ot... Read more
Gone Until New Year... and not a good start!
We were supposed to leave for our holiday travels today, and I had planned to take the time "off" from tracking my calories, just to give me one less thing to worry about. Well, due to travel weather uncertainties, we postponed our trip to tomor... Read more
Catching Up - Weeks 18-20
Well, I survived Thanksgiving week, and I met both my goals: I got in two workouts and I did not gain any weight. Woo hoo! I ate REALLY healthy the first half of the week, so that I did not have to be super conscientious the second ... Read more
Week 18 - Spark Holiday
Week 16 and 17 were semi-successful. I didn't workout as often as usual, but I burned almost as many calories as I my weekly target. I ate a bit too much on the weekends, but I tried to be healthy during the week, and I lost a pound and a half i... Read more
Week 15-16 - Hard Lessons
This past week was a new set of challenges for me.
I struggled with exercising enough to burn the calories I ate, because of my crazy busy schedule. I realize I'll have to eat less if this becomes my normal routine, but it's discouraging..... Read more
Week 14 - Resisting Halloween Candy
I just finished week 14 of my SP lifestyle changes, and I'm proud to say that I've been relatively resistant to Halloween candy temptations! I've allowed myself small candy "snacks", so that I didn't go crazy craving all the yummy treats at work... Read more
Weeks 12-13 - Busy busy busy!
A hectic schedule last week meant that I missed my weekly blog update and I didn't manage to meet some of my other Spark challenges. HOWEVER, I did manage to track my calories every day, work out four out of seven days, meet my calorie limit six... Read more
