Today was a dark day.

Friday, January 11, 2013      10 comments

I woke up rather tired and pulled myself up at 5:45 as I do every day to get a head start on my walking. I walk half an hour before work which nets me a little over 3000 steps. I figure it is easier to face the 10,000 steps that way. D... Read more

After a day off

Sunday, January 06, 2013      5 comments

Had my day off. I think I needed it. Back to my walking again. I have far to go. I wish I were home to check the scale and see my progress. It is nerve racking because I can't tell if I am judging my food correctly. I need my measuring ... Read more

Well, today I am glad I had my backup food in my backpack. When we got to work they didn't have the food we ordered so I had to change my day up and add in items from my pack like cup of soup and fruit and granola bar just to get in my calories... Read more

Just a thank you to all my new Spark Friends. You have helped me so much this year. I didn't lose as much as I would have liked to but suddenly things are starting to "click". I have met people I believe I will be friends with for... Read more

My DH has a good bunch of friends that I have come to know and love. Today one of the guys was teasing on FB saying he was closing in on me. (I'm first in the team) I told him that I just bought a rear view mirror so I could keep an eye on him... Read more

Monday, December 17, 2012      10 comments

Looking at my Fitbit results I’m doing well with my exercise but not as well with my food. Although my food is at the top end of my calories. Once again I took the “Are you obsessed with food” quiz. Of course the first time I took... Read more
