Getting my weight loss on!
No, nothing exciting to report about my weight, but my employer is trying a pilot program with an EXPENSIVE, and kind of impressive online weight loss management program. I was one of the few selected to participate.
Between that and all the ... Read more
Still here, still working it
I had to give up my lovely login and tracking streaks. I can't log in from home, it eats up too many megabytes, and I've been too busy at work, and outside of work to find myself a nice restaurant seat for online work.
On the work front the e... Read more
I had to get up at OMG:30 to get my son to work this morning. The old me would have thrown the skis on the roof of the car and headed for the hills. The current me sits on the couch with a cup of coffee and my budget, trying to make sure (for ... Read more
Not my best day
Not my worst either, but I tracked nothing today. Didn't need to. I had an emergency root canal. I've hardly eaten anything all week.
But I'm back now, and I need to catch up on my training.... Read more
Tracking the wild streak.
I haven't blogged in a while. It isn't that I had nothing to say, I always have something to say. I just didn't have anything to say that I wanted to share. Maybe that's selfish, I don't know. Sometimes I like to slump off to my cave and hid... Read more
Friday morning, not the 13th yet
I just realized that we have 2 Friday the 13th's in a row this year. Bummer!
I'm still doing pretty well on my new regimen. This week my feet have been swelling a bit, and the scale crept back up the 2 lb I lost last week. But since I can s... Read more
Registered for the triathlon
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
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.

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
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
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
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
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
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.
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
