140 or Bust!!!
Do not want my bust to be 140, just my weight.
A busy day yesterday, forgot to check back.
Will continue with my plan: before I choose what to eat, or before I put things into my mouth, I will repeat to myself: scale to read 140, sca... Read more
Another day, today!!!
I love each fresh new morning. It just makes me feel so good.
Going to try my mental awareness plan today, again. I went over my calories yesterday, but that was okay, because I had a really special dinner. I did very well up to dinner t... Read more
I actually am a rather sloppy person. I do not coil up the hose after I use it. I leave the washcloth all crunched up instead of neatly squeezing it out and spreading it on the rack so it will dry. Awhile back, I decided to change these habit... Read more
Not a happy camper
I am not a happy camper right now. I feel like it is impossible to lose any weight. Maybe this is my natural weight, and I should just forget about it all.
It is really hard not to see any progress. However, if I look at my calorie intake... Read more
Another grey, cold, wet morning, and I am very unmotivated. I put on my Coach Nicole strength workout after doing the trivia quiz and being reminded about how important strength training is. But I quit after 3 minutes.
My weight was stable... Read more
Dry Mouth Woes
For the last ten years or so, I have had an uncomfortable dry mouth--I even wake up in the middle of the night with it, dying with the drying!!
I find myself obnoxious to be always chewing gum (sugarless) which does help. Today I went to ... Read more
Blue Moon Beer
I did take the Blue Moon beer to my brother's birthday party, and it was a huge hit!!! I did not realize it is some special beer people like, and one person even said, "have you ever tried it with a slice of orange?" (I think that is what he s... Read more
I get an A + today. Or an F????
Okay, the bad news is my weight is up two more pounds. (well 1.5)
The good news is all this week I was able to break my snacking -on-chocolate-chips habit.
Is the glass half full or half empty, Spark-wise?... Read more
Beer, as a snack??
Can you even believe that yesterday I had beer as a snack?
Here is the reason: I have seen four great movies this summer and all of them had this very enticing ad for Blue Moon beer, a beverage that I had never tasted before. So, I boug... Read more
Sugar Rule (rather than Sugar Rules!!)
On and upwards with my self-training to get control of a sugar addiction. I am making a rule for myself. Only have cookies, cake, pie if you are eating it with someone else. There is no person lonelier that the pie-eating solitary woman.... Read more
I am re-training myself right now, as regards sugar items. Whenever I have a desire for candy or something sugary, I say to myself, "training, training". I am training myself to not respond to these cues. I am not eliminating sugar entirely. ... Read more
Two Good Days
I have had two good days since my vacation blow-out. Not only did I walk two miles, but I ate moderately. I tried something new: lemon juice as dressing on salad. Will try to make this a habit.
Plan: M,W,F - do strength training

Just got back from a wonderful trip to Oregon, but it was as if a voice inside me said,
"you are on vacation, so you can just go hog wild". Not only do I feel mad at myself for eating three cookies instead of just one at the bed and breakfas... Read more
This is funny. I was going to take some time off tracking, and I found I couldn't do it!!! Even though I slacked off on measuring, I still felt compelled to track my foods, even though I know it is not really accurate. So, I know I will get bac... Read more
Lost Blog/Spark Friends
I just wrote a blog and pressed a button and presto it was gone.
I actually was going to close down the computer and forgot I want to do the blog every day. Then I saw an email that someone had commented on my blog. So, click, that reminde... Read more
