Slept until 8 am
I usually wake up at 5am, but when I woke at 4am, I realized, I just cannot take this sleep deprivation anymore, so I took an advil pm. That is why I slept until 8am.
My lifestyle is disrupted, in a good way, so I am eating strangely. A sn... Read more
Did not even spin the wheel and it is 9pm!!! Went to daughter's to help out--laundry, vacuuming, entertaining 2 year old while baby nursed!!! Went on train, so it took 1.5 hours each way. But did enjoy myself catching up on magazines.

I have been very frustrated with the ads on Sparkpeople. Yes, I have pretty much learned how to tune them out, but many times they actually block what I want to do. I discovered a free program called Adblock, and it really works, not just for s... Read more
I have lots of exciting projects for the new year!!
One thing is to learn to use a GPS. After getting lost in Walnut Creek, being anxious about my daughter in labor, well, it is time for me to learn this device.
Another is to learn to... Read more
Home, for now
I just got home from my daughter's house. LIttle Ava is a sweetheart and her big brother seems to be doing fairly well. I really loved being part of a family life. Breakfast in the morning, all the hubbub with the dogs and cats (even if they co... Read more
Am still at my daughter's house, eating very well, won't worry about tracking, and just enjoy myself. Holding an infant is a total, total joy. Especially when that infant is part of you.

Odd psychological event
An odd psychological event? Yesterday, when I really had given up, for some reason, I ate within my calorie range and didn't even know it.
What does that mean? You shouldn't try too hard. Prepare, prepare, prepare and then let go.

Not in mood to blog, but I read where Jack London was so disciplined he wrote 1000 words every day whether he wanted to or not.
Was thinking of quitting Spark, because I am just plain fed up. My weight has not changed in two years, so why ... Read more
Now that I am religiously tracking, I can see why I only was tracking breakfast and lunch!!!
Yesterday's total came to 3000 calories. Ridiculous. It could be 500 over or 500 under, because I have no idea how accurate some of the entries ... Read more
I am pleased that I have tracked everything three days in a row, now. Usually, when I blow the dinner calories, I do not bother to even try to record them. See, it feels good to record when I do well. For example, nonfat milk, 90 calories, well... Read more
How I got to 2700 in one day.............
Had 2700 calories yesterday. At least I recorded them. Here is the deal. I did really well until 4pm. I was so hungry by then, and I found out that I wasn't going to have dinner until much later because of an unexpected visit from a relative.... Read more
Well, it is actually the Tuesday after, but feels like the Monday after a big weekend binge.
