Eat less and move more

Sunday, September 07, 2014      1 comments

Happy to be down 11 pounds since I began weight loss on July 7. I suppose today is my two-month anniversary for changing my eating habits. As I mentioned in an earlier post that I'm getting excited about clothes again. And I find that as I... Read more

Slow and steady wins the race

Monday, September 01, 2014      1 comments

Another pound came off this week. That means I've met my first ten pound of weight loss. I still need to do better with incorporating exercise into my routine; however, I'm doing better with being active in general--taking stairs instead... Read more

Doing better with exercise

Sunday, August 17, 2014      7 comments

I got back into SparkPeople last Monday. I've been working to take some weight off (notice that I didn't say "dieting") for about a month and a half. I didn't lose any additional weight this week, but I did improve my exercising. It's not parti... Read more

Time to shape up

Monday, August 11, 2014      2 comments

I made a not so successful try at getting back in shape in January of this year. Once my classes began again I stopped eating well and exercising. I gained back the four pounds I lost that month and even gained two more. Five weeks ago, I convi... Read more

Half Empty or Half Full

Monday, January 27, 2014      0 comments

I'm doing the 28-day Bootcamp Challenge that I've successfully completed in the past. First two weeks went great; last week was marginal. I continued to track food and I did exercise but did fall short of the Challenge goals for the week. I di... Read more

Halfway to my challenge trophy

Sunday, January 19, 2014      0 comments

When I tried SparkPeople the first time, the exercise challenges were one of the biggest things that helped me. Usually, it's hard for me not to finish something I begin publicly. The goals and videos make completion so concrete; therefore, it... Read more

Lost another pound--putting it into perspective

Thursday, January 16, 2014      2 comments

Last night I was thinking: "Well, I'm exercising and eating better--I'm surprised I haven't lost another pound by now." Well, the good news is that when I got on the scale this morning I had lost another pound. However, my next thought la... Read more

Love those trophies

Saturday, January 11, 2014      0 comments

I completed week one of the bootcamp challenge. Having done these SparkPeople challenges to lose weight and get in shape a couple of years ago, I felt like I was reconnecting with an old friend. And I got one of those email trophies for exceedi... Read more

Almost fell off the wagon today--thanks for the support!

Thursday, January 09, 2014      0 comments

This morning I didn't exercise because I needed to spend the early part of the morning preparing a training presentation for some colleagues. I figured I'd exercise after work instead. So how did they thank me? A gift bag of three kinds of ch... Read more

Moving in the right direction

Thursday, January 09, 2014      3 comments

So I've tracked my food and eaten healthy (lots of fruits and veggies) for four days, and I've exercised at least 30 minutes every day. I've stayed away from sweet treats. Result: I lost 1.5 lbs in four days. Hurray!... Read more

Taming my sweet tooth

Monday, January 06, 2014      1 comments

When I was pregnant with our daughter 16 years ago, I actually gave up sugar starting with the second trimester. I had had terrible morning sickness during the first trimester, and given that I was older having my first (and only) child, I want... Read more

Food

Sunday, January 05, 2014      0 comments

So many of us have a difficult relationship with food. I'm not sure that I eat all that much--but being short means I don't have a lot of room for extra calories. I can gain weight so easily. Exercise and monitoring what I eat has always helpe... Read more

I'm back

We moved. I got detrailed. I'm back to January 2011 weight. I'm back. Looking forward to progress in 2014.... Read more

Back on Track

Friday, February 17, 2012      4 comments

I got a bit derailed a week ago. Had a business trip, lots of grading, etc. I exercised a little but really wasn't watching my eating (consumed more Valentines temptations than I should have). And I gained a couple of pounds. For me maintena... Read more

Success Model

Sunday, January 29, 2012      1 comments

I love the book "Made to Stick" by Chip and Dan Heath as well as their more recent book "Switch." Both books essentially give ideas for how to get people to remember your ideas and to get people to change. The first book uses the SUCCESs m... Read more
