One Pound at a Time

Wednesday, February 06, 2013      9 comments

I find myself in a weightloss rut. I had abandoned tracking because inputting my recipes was so frustrating and time-consuming and I eat a lot of home cooking. I could call my position a plateau, but I know it's really a result of eating choic... Read more

Rededicating Myself

Sunday, February 03, 2013      9 comments

I have resolved to lose 13 pounds in 13 weeks, but what am I doing to make it happen? I have done a bit of fitness virtually every day (missed 2). The fitness I've done hasn't really gotten my heart pounding or sweat pouring, but I am leaps an... Read more

Went to St. Augustine's Lighthouse with a good friend yesterday. She had a coupon so it was free and included a tour of the site. I have visited St. Augustine many times including exploring the fort, attending concerts, going to the beach, sho... Read more

Here it is another Sunday night. Went to church and lunch out at Ruby Tuesday. I had a big salad consisting primarily of salad greens and then ordered the fish tacos. I gave one to my hubby. It is so good, but with the salad, it's really to... Read more

Thoughts on fitness

Monday, January 21, 2013      8 comments

I bought a few fitness tools for Christmas: a ball, a cushy mat, and a resistance band. I want to use Spark videos to help me with form so I get the most out of my efforts. I can't seem to get them easily on my TV with my Wii accessing youtub... Read more

Happy MLK Day and Inaugeration!

Monday, January 21, 2013      5 comments

My usual viewing of The Today Show has been pre-empted by the inaugeration ceremony. Is it really true that Fox News will go off the air at 11:30 because of it? That's so crazy! But to be honest, if you want to see this ceremony, it is availa... Read more

Non Scale Victory

Thursday, January 17, 2013      12 comments

My pounds are not down where they were on Tuesday. I have eaten some salty chips and carby pasta as well as some sugary birthday cake thanks to the back-to-back celebrations of my son and husband's birthdays. And I just couldn't rally to the e... Read more

Weight coming off

Tuesday, January 15, 2013      15 comments

Yay! The Wii Fit with fresh batteries says I'm down a pound! I was not really expecting a loss as my eating is not good. Yesterday was my son's birthday and he wanted lasagna but switched to going to Bonzai, the Japanese place where the chef ... Read more

Got in some fitness minutes and intended to eat better, but plans are made to be broken. Had a big salad at Zaxby's and that meant 4 servings of veggies. It was doughnut Sunday, and I couldn't resist one doughnut. Had a sad episode toda... Read more

Hills and Valleys

Wednesday, January 09, 2013      8 comments

Like most long term projects, there are hills and valleys in my health and fitness journey. I had lost a bit prior to Christmas and despite the impending holiday, was able to focus and concentrate on my fitness and right foods. I am now experi... Read more

402 people in the challenge at last count. The emails have stopped pouring in. In fact, I think I only got one new one today. For me to lose 13 pounds in the first 13 weeks of 2013, I need to get away from the computer some and do my fitness,... Read more

I keep a word document with all the people that joined the challenge, and I'm up to 382 now! If all 382 of the people lose their 13 pounds, the earth will be better for it! It's exciting to have so many people responding to the challenge. I h... Read more

Friday, December 28, 2012      6 comments

To get spark points, I have started doing the trivia questions found on Healthy Lifestyle page. I quit when I have answer 3. This is a great way to get points and learn tidbits at the same time. I am listening to SparkRadio right now. It... Read more
