Here is my plan for strength training. Very important at my age, not just for weight control. My mom got to the point where she could not even hold a tea pot.
Okay, so I am doing the Coach Nicole exercise band routine. I wash my hair ever... Read more
The book I mentioned yesterday talks about "keystone habits". Habits that if you change them, other changes occur. It makes sense. I have not finished the book, and I need to re-read parts of it. I really want to set up a plan for myself. T... Read more
Power of Habit
Found this book: The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. Not only is it fascinating, but the principles in it apply to all of us wanting to change our eating habits. It is not a diet book. Anyone else found it?... Read more
iPad and spark
On vacation and still journalling foods. iPad app is easy, but going to the website like this is really slow on the iPad. The typing is laborious. An iPad cannot replace a computer, but it sure is great for lots of things.... Read more
Reading and Eating
I simply cannot eat without reading, if I am alone. It is impossible for me. Yet, then, am I really tasting the food and knowing what I am eating. Something to think about.... Read more

Calories, that is. At least stayed under 2000. Just by a bit!!! Again, on analysis, I see that not eating candy would really have made a difference. Also skipping the beer with dinner.... Read more

Well, once more another holiday has completely thrown me off my food/exercise plan. Very discouraging.... Read more
I got a special treat for Easter, panettone, from a special Italian bakery in North Beach, so I do not feel guilty at all for having a three slices of it this morning. I did weigh it, though, and I did track it, so that is all to the good.

Monday Check UP
5pm - had 1000 calories during a light day, and I am starving right now. Am drinking H2O to see if I can hold off for dinner at 7pm.... Read more
The goal this week is to stay within our calorie range. I almost did it yesterday, 34 calories over, and amazingly, I was not starving. Not sure why sometimes I am ravenous and sometimes not. Actually, I still had too much cal. and I see whe... Read more
Since it is April 1, I am back to trying to get 100% on trivia for this month!! I have slowly moved from 60% overall to about 68% overall. It seems silly for a 66 year old adult woman to be fiddling with spark "points" and trivia percentages!... Read more
