140 or Bust!!!
Friday, August 31, 2012      5 comments

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!!!
Thursday, August 30, 2012      2 comments

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
New Plan
Wednesday, August 29, 2012      4 comments

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
Tuesday, August 28, 2012      5 comments

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
Tuesday, August 21, 2012      6 comments

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
Monday, August 20, 2012      1 comments

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????
Sunday, August 19, 2012      7 comments

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??
Sunday, August 19, 2012      2 comments

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!!)
Friday, August 17, 2012      3 comments

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
Training, training
Thursday, August 16, 2012      4 comments

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
Wednesday, August 15, 2012      4 comments

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 ... Read more
Hog Wild
Monday, August 13, 2012      4 comments

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
Tracking habit
Friday, August 03, 2012      7 comments

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
Wednesday, August 01, 2012      5 comments

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
