50 miles

Tuesday, December 11, 2012      11 comments

I got an email from Fitbit today. They said I had walked fifty miles. I was sure they were incorrect since I only got it back about a week ago. I thought I was walking about 4 miles a day. Well, it turns out it is five miles most days. They... Read more

I haven't blogged but I have definitely been on Spark People. I spend hours on it in fact. But, by the time I finish answering email and checking on friends, entering food and exercise I am tired and haven't been blogging. Today I wanted ... Read more

I need to learn how to distance myself from negative feelings. I know WHY I eat most of the time. I usually do it if I am not in control, or very angry, or very lonely etc etc. In other words I eat away my emotions. I wish there was a "h... Read more

Tonight DH and I worked. Of course in Kazakhstan they don't celebrate Thanksgiving so we had the foresight to bring cranberry sauce and Stove Top to supplement our meal. We ordered chicken breast, mashed potatoes, string beans, salad, pudd... Read more

I want to put out there that I have found so much on Spark People that I didn't expect. I was hoping to lose weight and was hesitant to do blogs to total strangers. I have disovered a wealth of friendship from this site. Thank you all for... Read more

One of those days.

One of those days when family problems find you even in Kazakhstan. I found myself wishing for chocolate. Good thing there was no store around for chocolate. Days like today make me realize that I reach for food when I am down. I wish I ... Read more

Is it me?

Is it me or does everyone feel strong while they are not hungry and weak when they are hungry? I am all gung ho when I am full and sure I will make good choices. But, then hunger strikes and all I can think of what would taste good. Not w... Read more

Today was the first day of work at the Cosmodrome. I drank a lot of water thus helping me get my walk in for the day. I managed to order a Fitbit which has shipped to my boss to bring in a couple of weeks. One good thing. DH wanted one for h... Read more

Okay today had good things and bad things. Oddly enough after not wanting to come back to work in Kazakhstan after travelling for days I couldn't wait to get here. Then when I arrived the little waitresses in the hotel and desk clerks and ... Read more

I have been so busy I haven't had time to blog much. I should be back to it soon enough. Today I received my Fitbit. I thought I set it up right on SP but it isn't syncing. Any ideas? I'll go to the technical assistance soon. The... Read more

I will be leaving again for a job in Kazakhstan in November. Not thrilled. I'm trying to look at it positively. It is my choice and I can say no but I feel I should go to help with money we need for finishing up the houses we own. The ... Read more

Shot Day

Monday, October 22, 2012      8 comments

Today I did very little. I'm tired still from all the travel I think. It was a windy day but I went and got my flu shot (which I hate). It was one of my Spark Team goals for the week. I ate within my calorie range again. I'm try... Read more
