Golf vacation begins tomorrow = nervous

Friday, May 04, 2007      0 comments

I feel great this week. I made a few good changes. I set up a May Challenge to help me stay focused and others. I like the accountability. I'm zigzagging calories - seeing if that makes a difference. I lost two pounds from last week - Love ... Read more

May Day

Monday, April 30, 2007      1 comments

I feel myself getting into a rut and potentially veering from getting to goal of 110. I had stated at the outset that I simply wanted to get to 110 by June 10th which begins a trip to the Bahamas. Now that I'm 8 lbs from goal with six weeks to... Read more

Family and Friends

Sunday, April 22, 2007      0 comments

I wouldn't think I would enjoy this anonymous public blogging and forum talk. But, I love my Spark friends and their support. There is something so carthartic about getting or giving help to a stranger - like volunteering but it comes so easy.... Read more

Moving Through

Friday, April 20, 2007      2 comments

I was so psyched at the beginning of April not knowing that my life would change so significantly with the death of my mother on 4/10/07. What a day, then a week. Feeling better now but every now and then I stop and remember what happened ... Read more

April continues

Monday, April 09, 2007      0 comments

The first week of the April Fool Challenge was a mediocre performance. No wine for one week - so far not really missing it. Dropped the All Bran for breakfast so I could reserve some carb calories for other treats, e.g. nonfat kettle corn.... Read more

4/5/07: Extra motivation

Thursday, April 05, 2007      0 comments

The scale rewarded my perserverance today with a one pound loss. I've screamed it to the world merely b/c I'm so shocked but also so pleased. I've created a strong challenge for myself in April and this loss fuels that motivation. Go ... Read more

April 3rd

Tuesday, April 03, 2007      0 comments

Ok, good notes: After spending two weeks away from home with little Spark support behind me, I fell off the wagon, big time. However, just two days after being home and righting the ship immediately, I feel just as good as when I left. ... Read more

April's Fool Challenge

After a two week hiatus I am ready to get back on track. I'll be challening myself to rack up the Spark points through April by hitting all my fitness and nutrition goals.... Read more

Two challenging weeks

Friday, March 23, 2007      0 comments

I just returned form a week stay with my mom. Food stayed in check, exercise good, too many wine glasses!! Next week I'm traveling again. It will be a hard week to stay on track but after that, I'm home for quite a spell so I will focus o... Read more

8 more pounds

Thursday, March 15, 2007      0 comments

While 8 pounds seems like a whole journey of its own when you're losing .5 pound per week, I'm actually pretty excited. Hopefully, next week I'm going to 117 then 116 which I haven't seen is who knows when. I have really stayed the course ... Read more

Coming Naturally

Monday, March 12, 2007      0 comments

There's times where I get somewhat anxious if I don't have access to the internet to ensure I'm on track. At some point, I'll need to test myself by meal planning the whole day and then entering to see if I'm within ranges. At some point this ... Read more

8.5 more pounds

Thursday, March 08, 2007      0 comments

When I officially landed in the 10 pounds to go subset, I knew the final ten would be hard. My goal weight is 110 and quite honestly I haven't been there in a very very very long time. My husband thinks I'm nuts but given my height of 5'2" and... Read more

So completely psyched

Friday, January 19, 2007      0 comments

Ok, here's the bigger challenge. I lost 3 pounds in two weeks and now I'm feeling good. 14 to go - need to stay focused and motivated. I'm thinking Spark will be the mechanism.... Read more

If the scale does not budget

Thursday, January 18, 2007      0 comments

If it doesn't, I need to point to cardio and weights. This week hasn't been as hard working as the prior week. Simple as that. Two days in a row feeling tired. Can't decide if I should walk today but I feel that if I don't the cobwebs will g... Read more
