First GOOOOOOAL! Achievement Unlocked!

Wednesday, November 12, 2014      2 comments

I am doing the happy dance! I made it to my first goal, AND I'm back in the 130s now, which I haven't seen on my scale since before my kids were born, I think. TEN YEARS AGO. Read more

I am down 7 pounds!

Wednesday, October 29, 2014      5 comments

Hey, it's been A WHILE, hasn't it?! My last post here was in May, and I was not happy. I had been on SP for 2+ years, with NO real progress. Argh. Not that it was SP's fault -- it wasn't. It was my fault. I wasn't being accountable or dili... Read more

How many times?

Wednesday, May 07, 2014      1 comments

I've quit and restarted here so many times I've lost count. My first login here at SP was 2011, I think? And I've yet to lose the first 10 pounds I wanted to lose. I'm very tempted right now to delete this SP account so no one will see all those... Read more

I've not been exercising even though I really do want to. I've had lots of excuses. Here is my pep-talk to REMEMBER that I LIKE EXERCISING (DUHHHHH!!) I like feeling good-sore I like feeling winded (sometimes) I like feeling su... Read more

Glad it's Friday!

Friday, January 10, 2014      3 comments

This week, man! It has been crazy. With the kids out of school Monday and then unexpectedly Tuesday, and me having to attend a national meeting Mon/Tues and then play catch-up the rest of the week at work... it has worn me right out. Today ... Read more

Slow blogging

Wednesday, January 08, 2014      2 comments

I had to slow down (=stop) blogging here because it had become such a distraction for me. I could spend a lot of time I was supposed to be working, over here "playing" with Sparkfriends, reading lots of motivating things and.... not doing my wor... Read more

Fun Halloween

I'm grateful my neighborhood makes a big deal over Halloween, because it means I get a lot of nice (albeit slower than usual) walking done that night! Helps work off the Read more

Confession time - Weekend

Monday, October 28, 2013      2 comments

I must have mixed up "cheat day" with "cheat weekend." Friday we ordered pizza for our movie night with the kids, and I ate more than my planned 1.5 pieces. Pizza... I can't resist it, man. Saturday we went out to dinner with some fr... Read more

2 Good Days

Thursday, October 24, 2013      3 comments

I've had 2 good days of eating and getting around 20 minutes of exercise. Much better than I had been doing! I'm pleased. Even had Mexican food yesterday and kept my hands out of the chips basket. Tonight is a fundraiser for my kids' school... Read more

Dusting off the ol' SP blog....

Monday, October 21, 2013      2 comments

I've been unhappy about my pants not fitting again. I want to be "back" and get my good habits re-booted. I want to have that feeling of slight superiority because I'm a person who works out. (So I need to start working out again!) I know that's... Read more

My August is chip-less!

Monday, August 12, 2013      3 comments

Tortilla chips, that is. Yesterday I had one, but I folded up the bag and put it away. My nemesis, those things, and their accompanying guacamole and queso dip! Even salsa makes me want to eat a million chips. It's embarrassing when ... Read more

Thoughts for today

Drink water Eat fresh foods Give up chips (really considering this. Might start with giving them up for a month to see if I can do it) Stop when I'm full... Read more

What I'm doing right; what I'm doing wrong

Friday, July 26, 2013      7 comments

Nearly every day, I try to start my workday with a little 5-10 minute meditation. Usually in the parking lot at my office, using either my iPhone timer or I appreciate the happy moments I experience. I drink at least 40 ounc... Read more

Mondays and Fridays

Wednesday, July 24, 2013      0 comments

I'm making Mondays and Fridays my long workout days. T, W, TH I want to do yoga at the very least. I'm also having real trouble keeping my calories in-range. Why is that?? I've been SO hungry the last 2 days. Not feeling like I can do... Read more

It shouldn't be too hard for me to eat light today. Practicing a little "solidarity" (although that's punny) with my husband, who's having a routine colonoscopy tomorrow (he has Crohn's). He can't eat anything today or until his procedure tomorr... Read more
