Monday, March 02, 2015      1 comments

I registered this morning for the spring Gold Nugget triathlon. No wonder I never date, all my events are for women only. Sheeze!... Read more

Adjusted to the new schedule

Sunday, March 01, 2015      1 comments

I've finally got a feel for the rhythm of our new household schedule, and I'm ready to add triathlon training back in. Not a moment too soon either. Registration for my main event is tomorrow, and I have to be ready to go by mid May. Note... Read more

diet pill day 1

At my appointment yesterday, we talked about my caloric intake, and where we should go now. I hadn't wanted to do this, but I've decided to try a diet pill. She prescribed Phentermine, and I took the first dose this morning. The first thing I... Read more

More about tracking

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      2 comments

Trying to add more vegetables. Oddly enough I thought I was eating lots of veg, but I was throwing more away than I was eating. Tonight we had raw sliced vegetables with burgers (no bun for me, I hate GF burger buns). I also brought about a ... Read more

No phone call from my doctor

Sunday, February 22, 2015      2 comments

It's been a while since my thyroid test, and I haven't gotten a call from the doctor's office. That means my thyroid is okay. This is good, but it doesn't help me figure out why I can't seem to lose any weight. 33 days now, I've been logging ... Read more

Day 4 food tracking streak and other emotional situations

Friday, February 20, 2015      0 comments

Today's Spark Coach session was on maintaining after you've achieved your goal. Considering that I've been back and tracking for 39 days now (missed one day of tracking on Sunday), and have not seen the scale so much as wobble in a downward mot... Read more

Day 2, my new food tracking streak and why not the others

Tuesday, February 17, 2015      2 comments

So I ask myself, because I rarely get to talk about this stuff with anyone else, why am I so worried about my food tracking streak that got reset yesterday, on account of because I forgot to track on Sunday? (Is that what they call a run-on sen... Read more

My new health plan

Monday, February 16, 2015      1 comments

This is my Sparkcoach assignment for today. I am supposed to make a new health plan, and post about it. I am already committed, or should be. I am decluttering my home. I've already bought a Dyson vacuum cleaner (Tank), and a Roomba (Dot), ... Read more

Well, piffle! Day 1, tracking food.

Monday, February 16, 2015      0 comments

I forgot to track my food yesterday. I ate okay, I guess, but was just too desperate to get my reading assignment done, and my weekly class check-in accounted for. So, back I go into the single digits.... Read more

Food tracking streak day 32

Friday, February 13, 2015      2 comments

Is it my imagination, or is the air getting thin up here? I haven't been losing weight, but the panic response is wearing out, and I've started experimenting with the calorie range and food types to see if I can get some downward progression. ... Read more

Thursday, February 12, 2015      2 comments

My 24 year old son is getting annoyed with me for hanging out on the computer :). My, how they do change as they grow up. Anyway, day 30 and still tracking my food every day. Yay me!... Read more

Monday, February 09, 2015      2 comments

That's right, I have cute animal pictures to share. How wonderful of me. But first, I've been logging on to SP and tracking my food for 28 days now. This being February and all, does that count as a month? So now on to the real topic of thi... Read more

Morning? Already?

Sunday, February 08, 2015      1 comments

Wow! I used to get up at 4:30 every morning for work. I can't believe I did that. This morning my son had to be to work by 7:00, and he can't seem to wake up to his alarm...besides, he doesn't drive. It's been 4 hours since I got up, and I'm... Read more

A promise to myself

Saturday, February 07, 2015      1 comments

Yesterday was a huge emotional low point for me. I promised myself a better day today, starting with counting my blessings, going to careful measuring with my tracking, and so on. I didn't wake up well, probably because of all the junk food I... Read more

25 day streak and asked for help

Friday, February 06, 2015      6 comments

I've figured it out; I've given up hope. In the past I've been able to get enthused about starting a weight loss plan because I believed I could do it. This time I'm going through the motions, but the hope is gone. I joined Sparkcoach yesterd... Read more
