Shame on me...
I was so gung-ho. So into P90X. So singing the praises of SparkPeople. I bought The Spark. I was practically dating Tony Horton. Then suddenly I got sick. Like really sick. Not disease-sick, fortunately, but that utterly horrible cold that comes... Read more
Bad, but still good
Last night hubby and I went out with some friends. The evening started at their apartment. He is a master chef and cooked up an amazing dinner. She's the hostess with the mostest so our wine and beer glasses were always full. After dinner we wen... Read more
Finally on the right track for the long haul
Ladies and gentlemen...I think we finally have lift-off!
Combining what I'm learning about tracking foods on SparkPeople, plus my Weight Watchers knowledge, PLUS P90X (love, love, LOVE P90X!), I think I'm finally seeing some progress: not o... Read more
Step 5: Get back on the horse...or wagon...or plan
It's been almost 2 months since I've blogged, but this isn't a bad thing. In the meantime my husband has actually looked at the SparkPeople web site and made comments like "looks cool" and "I might try that". ... Read more
Step 4: Planning to plan
Yes, planning to plan is just utter silliness. "Let's make an appointment to set an appointment." But planning to plan, in terms of weight loss, makes sense!
Today I planned my day: breakfast, waxing/threading/mani/pedi, quick lunch in my c... Read more
Step 3: Finding some motivation
Here's something weird and random and goofy. I am a member of a forum for a certain rock group I looove. One guy posted some pictures of him and his fiancee at a concert and I took one look at this woman, probably a good 15 years younger than me... Read more
Step 2: Making some changes
So yesterday I was honest and today I'm making some changes.
I'm changing my photos. I look far too skinny in the old ones from almost 3 years ago! I'll add some new ones today and have DH take a picture of me at my starting size.
I'm ... Read more
Step 1: Being honest with myself
If I'm honest with myself I'm overweight.
If I'm honest with myself I don't look very good.
If I'm honest with myself I can try harder.
If I'm honest with myself I'm not happy.
If I'm honest with myself I fear progress.
If I'm honest w... Read more
Hi! I'm back...
It's not like I didn't know this would happen. I fell off the wagon. Not the eating well and exercising wagon, but the tracking and blogging wagon. What a surprise.
But I'm back. And I plan to do my BEST. I won't make it back here every day... Read more
It's Okay, I'm a Sparker!
I fell off track! For two days! But it was because I was absolutely exhausted and had zero energy. I needed sleep, and boy, did I sleep! About 14 hours a day for two days. I had a wee bit of comfort food last night (soft butter rolls with peanut... Read more
Falling off the track
I find that I fall off track on weekends. It's not that I fall off the wagon entirely, I just find that my routine is lost and my eating habits are exaggerated because I try to fit it all in in and around weekend stuff: errands, chores, events, ... Read more
My goal was to be 69 kilos by Rhonda's wedding. After I started on the wheat-free, sugar-free, fruit-free, soy-free, vinegar-free, everything-else-free diet in October, I was well on track. Now I'm eating normally again (healthily, too), and I'm... Read more
I Hab a Code
It started last night when DH and I were driving home from the Moreeb Dune in Liwa. I told him I had an overwhelming urge to cuddle with him. Even though that's fun to do and not out of the ordinary for me, I should have known it was the first s... Read more
A Day for Me
I am a hockey wife. I have been for 6 years now. Four of which I was a hockey girlfriend, but the job description is the same: go to your SO's hockey games, support him, give constructive feedback, and get ready for the next game. My DH, being a... Read more
Not so bad after all!
First of all, the concert was absolutely amazing. See Nickelback, even if you don't know their stuff. They will blow your mind.
Secondly, I didn't do too badly on the eating front. I didn't track, and I'm sure I ate more than 1200 calories ... Read more
