Feeling groggy right now, but best to do the blog first thing in the morning while I drink my coffee. I had a very intense dream that my dad was alive. In the dream I knew he had died, but I was seeing him clear as day; he was smiling, but did... Read more
I hadn't realized it, but Jeanne is right!!! It is so hard to break bad habits, but so easy to break good habits!!! Why is that?
I will look for the book by David Krichhoff that Karen mentioned.
The blog is a relatively easy habit for... Read more
Wow, it has been a week since I did the blog, and it is something I love to do every day, and it takes very little time. This just shows how easy it is to slip out of a habit. The fact applies to our eating habits as well. And really applies t... Read more
Review of Blogs
Monday, November 29, 2010
This is the date of my first blog. I am almost afraid to look up my other ones, because I am actually the same weight now as I was then. However, I do believe I eat better now. I should look at my old trackings.... Read more
Walk the walk???
Am in a hurry. But if you are establishing a habit, it is good to do it even for a short time. Really applies to exercise. Come on, everyone has five minutes. So, if you do not have half an hour, you certainly can do five minutes. I do not have... Read more
It occurred to me that it might be valuable to review my blogs going back to the very first. Right now I am too scared to do this!!! ha ha... Read more
I am at 71% on the trivia quiz. That is because I do it too quickly. If I stop and actually think about the question, I do better. And then if I google the questions I am not sure about, I will get 100%. And in the process of researching I lear... Read more
Spark's Meal Plans
I am continuing with checking out Spark's meal plans.
First, these plans get you out of your rut. I am trying some new foods, well, not new to me, but good ones I had forgotten about, like hummus.
Secondly, you can print out the me... Read more
Meal Plan Experiment
I chose a "regular" meal plan for the tracker, and I do like seeing what Spark recommends and what I can use to substitute. However, I think it is less precise than what I have been doing. They do not seem to use grams and ounces the way I do.... Read more
Day 2 of Experiment
Looked at Spark Menu for today. Did the "substitution" thing. That works well. See, you don't need to eat what they tell you, but their menu gives you a guideline. For example, today it said something like "1 apple" for breakfast, which I did ... Read more
Experiment: I decided to put Spark's suggested menus on my tracker page, even though I do not intend to follow most of them. Seeing them will help me make better choices I hope. Spark is amazing to me that they give you so many different ways ... Read more
1. Did a Coach Nicole 7 minute workout.
2. Ate a 300 calorie breakfast, cut usual servings in half. Kind of irritating to do that, but I feel okay.
3. Ate a hard boiled egg to make up for it. Maybe it can keep me from starvation.

Which day do we record for midnight snacks?
5% Challenge: So far, only one day that I stayed in 1500 calorie range, but then I had a midnight snack!!! Do I count it for Wednesday or for Thursday? If I count it for Wednesday, I have ruined my 1500 cal. goal. But if I count it for Thursda... Read more
I have only had about 100 calories for breakfast for the last two days, but then I end up with 900 calories for lunch. Instead of 400 for breakfast and 400 for lunch. This calorie business is tricky. The psychology of it. I am getting better an... Read more
Fourth of July
Going to have a healthy dinner: barbecue chicken, macaroni salad, green beans, and a salad. But beer too, probably.... Read more
