Bad blogger. Bad, bad blogger.
It turns out I'm not so great at keeping this blog up to date, but well, such is the way things go. But, I'm feeling a new burst of motivation and energy after a long, bus... Read more
When the scale fairies reward you....
So, I wanted chips last night real bad... And unfortunately, there are some in the house. Picked up the bag, and then yelled, "No." (I was home alone, or my husband would have wondered what was going on in the kitchen.) Read more
Down 6 since year's beginning
Not a startling number, but I'm feeling great about it. It's nice to see ever smaller numbers on the scale, and to feel energized by the process again. Read more
February 1 - time to start the year
Since my new year didn't start out so well, I'm going to restart my resolutions with the Lunar New year. So 恭喜发ฝ
0; and here we go.
I have to give a couple presentations at the end of March, so that is my goal--... Read more
Bye bye 2013, hello 2014
I always look forward to a new year--new start, new possibilities. I have loads of resolutions, some just fun (play my violin more, write for fun more), some serious (lose weight, exercise). I'm trying to find some creative resolutions as well--... Read more
The scene: last night, getting ready to go to a party
The problem: The one dress I have that still fits has a stain on the front I hadn't noticed. What to wear?
The action: Going through dozens of outfits, either they don't fit, look awful, ... Read more
Once more with feeling!
So I keep *saying* that I'm going to get on track, but yet, somehow....
Enough. I'm not getting younger. This is never going to get easier. I am not going to get fit... Read more
So the Sparkcoach is telling me to write about three accomplishments of the week. This is a great practice, of course, as I tend to focus on what I didn't do right, as oppo... Read more
When the goal gets harder...
So, I set a goal to get to 150 by the time I leave for China, Oct. 12.
That goal is looking harder to hit, as I lost a pound last week, but am already feeling stalle... Read more
So, down a pound since I got more serious. Just 1. ONE! I'm happy about one.
The focus on increasing exercise, plus starting to record again--but just using paper and ... Read more
It's time to rededicate myself to this pursuit of health. I've been sloppy, not feeling it, easily talked out of good habits, etc. lately. It must come to an end.
Now. Not Monday. Not when it's more convenient. Now.
Okay, time to get... Read more
Fitbit Zip vs. Nike Fuel Band
Being one of those gadget crazy types, I've bought both the fitbit and the Nike Fuel Band.
How do they stack up?
I compared results today, as I wore both and wore them for exactly the same amount of time. My fitbit was on my belt. The ... Read more
Another Year Already? Resolutions. Or not.
With so many 'Jan. 1s' behind me, what is going to make this one different? How will this not become just one more sputtered rocket off the launch pad, hovering for a few seconds before plummeting back to earth?
It won't be. And it will be.... Read more
Day 2 (and 3)
Ugh! It's been hard to get back into a better routine. I have a new work schedule, and it's kicking me.
My new resolutions: get up a little earlier and eat a healthy breakfast at home, instead of picking up whatever on the way
Get ou... Read more
And here we go!
A couple years back, I weighed 170+. I got down to 142 at one point, and have now drifted back up to 150, which I swore I wouldn't do. Time to put the brakes on.
I've been eating a bit too much, having an extra cocktail, exercising too litt... Read more
