My New Year's Resolution is simple: to continue my new lifestyle. Continue eating healthfully, exercising sanely and sparking as often as I can. This is my last year of being a working woman and I want to make it the best I can so my DH and I... Read more

Life Changer

Wednesday, December 30, 2009      3 comments

At the end of the year I just can't help but look back at the changes SP has made in my life. I didn't really think about it, but more than my weight and size, SP has changed my emotions. I am not depressed. Having been in a state of chronic ... Read more

Chaos in the Kitchen

Tuesday, December 29, 2009      5 comments

Since I've been ready about healthful cooking and foods, last night I decided to stop by the store on the way home and pick up a few things to cook. I got the ingredients for a chicken stock, northern beans and beets. Sounds pretty easy doesn'... Read more

Talk About Cold

Monday, December 28, 2009      5 comments

Even the dogs didn't want to go outside this weekend! It was really cold. The cabin was cosy with the fire but going out to turn the generator on to refill the water tanks was cold and windy. The snow was blowing so hard we couldn't even see ... Read more

Quiet Holiday

Wednesday, December 23, 2009      3 comments

My daughter is working the whole weekend and my son has "other plans" so DH and I will be alone for the Holiday. I could be sad, but I'm not. Thankfully DH and I like being alone together and we are happy we have happy kids who spend time with... Read more

Christmas Gifts

Tuesday, December 22, 2009      3 comments

I hope I don't sound like a Scrooge, but I don't like the exchange of meaningless gifts with people I barely know, like at work. I love giving things to the people I love and think carefully about what would bring them joy, but I don't like Sec... Read more

I'm down 3 pounds this morning. That includes the 2 I gained last week and one new one! emoticon I think... Read more

Off Track

Friday, December 18, 2009      6 comments

I definitely learned that I need to track my food and exercise last week. When I don't track I underestimate my intake. I was way above my calories a couple of days last week and I feel the difference. The scale has me up 2 which I know is no... Read more

Stressssssful Week

Thursday, December 17, 2009      1 comments

It's been a stressful week. Not being able to access Spark People except for a few minutes at work and on my husband's old, old, slow, slow computer. All I could do was the absolute essentials - what I ate and my exercise. I often didn't get ... Read more

I had lunch with a group of people at work as a potluck. I brought a loaf of the SP Banana Nut Bread (once again!). I ate small amounts of the most apporopriate things I could find at the pot luck and tried very hard to be careful. When I we... Read more

I can't believe how cold it is. I don't know if losing 40 pounds has made me feel the cold more, but I am freezing. I just want to sit in front of the fire in my snugglie and stay warm. I don't want to go out there and go to work. Oh, well, ... Read more

Back to Cardioke

I tried Jillian Michaels Boost Metabolism DVD on Exercise TV yesterday. Boy that was too much for me. I pulled my side and hurt my knee. This middle aged grannie is going back to Cardioke today. Read more

Consistency and Moderation Make my Day!

Monday, December 07, 2009      3 comments

I guess you do burn more calories in the cold because I did lose a pound last week. Yay me! I seem to be pretty consistent at having a 500 calorie daily deficit and that leads to a pound a week weight loss which is great for me. I think ... Read more

You Burn More Calories in the Cold. Right?

Sunday, December 06, 2009      1 comments

It was cold up in the mountains this weekend. It was 22 degrees F when we arrived Friday and 2 degrees F when we left today. Brrr. Our Vermont Castings stove kept us nice and cozy in the house when it was on but it was cold in the morning whe... Read more

Random Musings

Friday, December 04, 2009      1 comments

I think I am finally well! 3 weeks of feeling lousy, but I'm back on track. I'm back on my daily asthma meds after several years of thinking I didn't need them. I sure don't want to go thru that again so I will follow MDs orders this time. H... Read more
