Admiration for runners.

Tuesday, June 14, 2011      7 comments

I have a couple of friends close to my age, my age, older even (I am 46) that are marathon runners. Seriously, they run for 26 miles straight. The one guy is doing a 100 mile weekend. 100 miles. Running. Same guy that twisted his ankle 2 mi... Read more

PALCON resurfaces

Monday, May 30, 2011      7 comments

I'm back on Spark, and happy to be here! Life got a little overwhelming in April and May, but I am not giving up. I've been a regular at the gym again, and I'm going to regain my momentum with the weight loss. It's 4 months until my birthday... Read more

I like to see me, smiling right back at me.

Here's one thing fun about the journey to a normal weight: smiling at yourself in the mirror. Right? Isn't it nice to get dressed and do your hair and think, "hey, I look ok!" Read more

Success with a side of scared.

Tomorrow will be four weeks of the Biggest Loser and my new experimental protocol (niaspan + low carb) designed to increase my abysmal HDL, and I am happy to report close to 10 more lbs are gone forever, and I notice it --my face is thinner, a c... Read more

Fighting the Valentine blues.

This is a little hard to write, because I'm not one to show a chink in the armor. I don't cry easily, I tend to keep a stiff upper lip and keep going. But, here I am, and I'll admit to you, sparkfriend, that I'm having a hard time mainta... Read more

This weekend I am going to be spending a lot of time with my sister and my parents, which is wonderful, I love them! But the problem is, when I am with the fam, it is so easy to slip out of the new eating pattern and slip right back into the old... Read more

Gimme 5 (rather, 4.6, I'm rounding) for the Shrinking Slugs

Tuesday, February 01, 2011      7 comments

So, it has been a week since I saw my doctor and also a week since we started the Biggest Loser competition at work. My team is called "the Incredible Shrinking Slugs" and we have 6 members. Dietary recomposition: I have been pretty spark... Read more

And now, for my next trick...

So, my weight is down 3lb from the last time I was at the doctor. Nothing fabulous there. So the results of this portion of the experiment (diet, exercise + Lovaza) are: HDL went down :( to 34. Wrong direction! The good news is that my... Read more

1-25-11. Auspicious day to start Big Losing.

Monday, January 24, 2011      7 comments

Today is a good day to start the Biggest Loser-- it is the official start of the contest at work, and we have a great team put together. I'm just an eeny weeny bit competitive, so this is very good for me. It's also the day of my scheduled... Read more

Fifteen week balancing act starts tomorrow-- I can do it!

Sunday, January 09, 2011      7 comments

It has been a pretty good week for me--stayed mostly in-range for my eating, did the boot camp video every day, took a walk (partly for my Artist's way stuff) and did my weights and cardio as planned. Easy to do on an easy week! However, ... Read more

I lift like a 20 year old guy?!

Wednesday, January 05, 2011      3 comments

So I go to the gym today, and I'm there, the 46 year old fat chick, dutifully (and happily thanks to my ROCKIN iPOD playlist) be-bopping through my weight circuit, when I notice that this kid sits down at the station where I just finished (the s... Read more

This time, succeed. What will make the difference?

I came across some goals I had written for myself a year or two ago, and I got that "Groundhog Day" feeling when I read "lose weight, get organized, blah blah blah". More of the same! There's that saying that insanity is doing the same thi... Read more

New mantra: never put your wishbone where your backbone ought to be.

Saturday, January 01, 2011      4 comments

I came across this quote and I LOVE it! I need it! I wish I knew who said it. I'm not sure, with my cultural conditioning and basic personality if I can say, "me first" but I surely have to make sure I'm not last. I can wish and pla... Read more
