Already sick of tracking

Tuesday, April 19, 2011      3 comments

This has happened to me before. A few weeks into a 'health kick,' I start getting really tired of tracking all the food I eat. Even with handy iPhone apps. I'm okay at estimating my calorie intake, but don't feel like I'm SURE unless I enter eve... Read more

BMI Goal

Friday, April 15, 2011      1 comments

So, my first goal of getting Fitness back into my life and daily routine is underway, and I would say it's a habit at this point. I was working out zero days a week, now I'm up to at least 3, which is a definite improvement. My real goal, t... Read more

My new weigh-in day is Wednesday!

Today the emoticon was kind to me and said I now weigh 140.5. That's the lowest it's been since I started here on S... Read more

Did not meet goal. :(

Monday, April 11, 2011      6 comments

Achieving 138 by April 8th was going to be a stretch, anyway, but the fact is I didn't make my goal. In fact, my weight has apparently gone up again. Last week during spring break I didn't even exercise like I should have. I'm pretty depre... Read more

Things that are working

Thursday, March 31, 2011      3 comments

1. Sparkpeople Points! Don't know WHY, but I am rather addicted to earning those dumb little virtual awards. It keeps me coming back here, where I see and read stuff that helps motivate me every day. 2. Water! I've been drinking at least 32... Read more

My SP calorie suggestion went up

Tuesday, March 29, 2011      4 comments

Late last week I noticed that SP had upped my suggested calorie intake. I'm unsure why they did this but I think it's because I added some exercises to track, on March 25. (I didn't end up doing them.) But why would the suggested calories go up ... Read more

Better, but...

I behaved more intelligently than usual during the weekend, as in: -did not eat any full meal made of fast food; -did not overeat; had reasonable portions; -drank more water But I also: -did not workout; -did not resist stup... Read more

Upcoming weekend

Thursday, March 24, 2011      0 comments

I'm telling you, the weekend is my NEMESIS as far as eating and workouts. But this weekend is going to be different. 1. I am going to carry my water bottle with me. 2. I am going to get SALADS or grilled chicken when we inevitably eat fa... Read more

New Goal: 138 by April 8

Tuesday, March 22, 2011      2 comments

Alright, this is IT. Time to set a weight loss goal. Sparkpeople truly HAS helped me be more consistent in working out and I'm GRATEFUL for that! I'm not up to 5x/week yet, but still working on it! I'm definitely up to 3x/week, which is an impro... Read more

Want to/Don't want to

Monday, March 21, 2011      2 comments

I'm so tired today. We had a busy weekend, again. I wonder when I'm going to get used to that and stop saying it as if it's unusual. We ALWAYS have busy weekends. Anyway. I didn't workout at ALL. I tried to "make good choices" food-wise, but rea... Read more

Yesterday was cold and rainy so I grabbed my shoes and headed to the office building's little gym. I've been going down there once a day for my 3 Sun Salutations (Yoga - Other Goals), and I love that no one ever seems to be in there. But t... Read more

What's my temptation?

Tuesday, March 15, 2011      2 comments

My new friend Steve asked yesterday, What's my temptation? I thought it was a great question and probably needs to be confessed, to give me some accountability for these foods. My main one is WHITE FLOUR TORTILLAS. It's my comfort food, my ... Read more

It's been a pretty good week overall, but I'm stressed out about a lot of things. Work-wise, there's always a new project that comes up, adding to my pile. Sometimes I really hate my work. (Other times I love it, so I can't necessarily say ... Read more

Time to get serious

Tuesday, March 08, 2011      2 comments

Today's going to be a cardio AND strength day. I've been slacking off - first the weekend (no excuse, but it's often mine), then yesterday's lunch invitation and last night's baseball game ate up all my time. Blah! Must log my 5 days! Tuesday, W... Read more

2 weeks, 2 pounds down!

Monday, March 07, 2011      3 comments

I have to celebrate the fact that my ticker has moved down 2 pounds today. I'm unsure if it's diet, exercise, or just the phases of the moon making the loss, but it's motivating. And I really NEED that today because after the weekend I am back i... Read more
