2013.8-10 Don't blink!
Three days go by so quickly! Almost in the blink of an eye.
I thought I could go a day, or two, and still be able to remember what I'd eaten well enough to back-track, to meet my goal of tracking my nutrition each day. And I can go two days,... Read more
2013.4-7 keeping it real
So, my intension was to blog every single day of the year, to keep myself on task and accountable to my goals.... Well, I guess that isn't for real, because as much as I'd like to do that I just can't get to it every day. Goal adjustment: blog a... Read more
2013.3 not so easy today
I had a very busy day at the office today, and so have not had a chance to work out yet...but I will.
I did track all of my intake, went slightly over calories, while low on protein. I suspect that is because I had cheese with breakfast and l... Read more
2013.2 - off to a good start today
So far today, I have said good bye to all the relatives visiting, cleaned and refreshed the guests rooms, cleared out the refrigerator, and taken out chicken to cook for dinner. I've tracked my breakfast, and chalked up over 1000 points on my fu... Read more
2013.1 a mini success to start
Today I had a house full of unexpected guests at lunchtime. My rather impromptu plan was to lay out all the remaining goodies after lunch and let the masses consume what they wanted and dispose of the rest.
It worked really well, right up to ... Read more

Tomorrow is the last day of my first full calendar year with SparkPeople. And I'm thrilled with the changes I have been able to make in that year.
I've lost 30 lbs, and kept 25 of it off, for the whole year.

ABC of me - borrowed from other SparkPeeps!

I'm a loser...again!
I have been sitting at the same weight for weeks, months even! And finally I am off the plateau with a small loss...1 lb..two weeks in a row!
I cheated a bit, weighing in on a Sunday night, but it was worth it! I'm happy!... Read more
Fabulous Saturday...so far
I've had The nicest day today, starting with a casual walk with the dog, just about 3 miles and then taking a long(ish) bike ride through by ways and back roads of NH.
It is a beautiful day here, and I am just so pleased to be in good enou... Read more
Another banner day!
I've been doing the training regimen for the 5K YourWay challenge, for about 4 weeks now. I actually just added it to my usual running and workout schedule, but it's been helpful.
So helpful in fact, that I broke my best speed today!

Happy, happy, joy, joy!
I just recalculated my BMI and I am no longer obese!!!
Since joining SparkPeople I've lost over 25 lbs and my BMI went from 33.9 to 29.2!
Not a huge change but enough to take me from the 'obese' to the 'overweight' category.
No... Read more
Week two, a time to catch up
Well, this past week was a kind of different, but worth every calorie and slippery slope.
We spent the week at our lake house, with our newly married daughter, her husband, and our son. For the first time it was all five of us just hanging ou... Read more
And the beat goes on.....
Days 3-6 all went pretty well, and by that I mean no disasters!
Ate well all weekend, not perfect. Still far better than the old me.
Worked out every day, big plus. I find I can deal with most anything, as long as I have a good 60 mi... Read more
Day 2:phase two
