Nearly a year

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      4 comments

It is almost one year since I made a goal of 30 minutes of exercise EVERY DAY. It is a modest goal, but I was going for consistency. Later this month will be my one year mark if I continue to be successful. I am so happy that I haven't missed ... Read more

This year I decided I needed to work on my consistency. I found a site called HabitForge that helps keep you accountable. I get an email every day to see if I have done the thing I planned to do. The thing I chose was "exercise 30 minutes dai... Read more

Triathlon T

Tuesday, June 05, 2012      1 comments

I was looking for a tshirt to wear yesterday, and found the tshirt from my first sprint triathlon 6 years ago. Training for that was the beginning of my trip to improved fitness and weight loss. I lost about 30 pounds and moved from couch pota... Read more

Setting a deadline.

Wednesday, September 28, 2011      0 comments

I think maybe I need a goal date or deadline. Being loose with this takes the stress out of it, but also lets me meander along on my weight loss journey without an arrival time. I think this week I will make some weight loss schedules I can... Read more

I can do this.....

I have been struggling, and thought it had been a year since I had logged on to Spark People. But, guess what, it has only been 5 months or so! I broke my leg in April. That put me out of commission for about 6 weeks, lots of sitting, etc.... Read more

"Just because it's on sale doesn't mean I have to buy it"

Wednesday, April 06, 2011      10 comments

I was reading an article on organization the other day, and of course one problem is aquiring too much "stuff." I ran across this sentence, and it has been resonating with me. I am a real sucker for a "good deal." If I see a great bargain... Read more

Nice little visitors

I have had a fun 2 weeks. After our tripto visit my youngest daughter we brought her home with us for 2 weeks. Although I haven't really suffered with "empty nest syndro... Read more

Survived the Weekend.

Monday, March 28, 2011      2 comments

I went away for the weekend to visit family. I would say I did about 50% better than I usually do when I am away from home. Far from perfect, but some improvement. I will count that as a positive. I ate most of my meals out. But I was mo... Read more

Supper?

Wednesday, March 23, 2011      3 comments

Last night I got home late from work, too late to want to cook. I assembled what amounted to dinner out of my frige and leftovers. I ended up with a mound of cooked cabbage, a pile of pumpkin with a spritz of butter spray, salt and pepper,... Read more

Eating better decreases hot flashes.

Tuesday, March 22, 2011      2 comments

This is my experience. I'm not sure if it is the whole foods and lack of processed ingredients, or, maybe more likely the negative calorie balance. But whatever it is I can really tell a difference when I am eating right. Another poin... Read more

What is my problem?

Monday, March 21, 2011      5 comments

This is a contemplative essay for myself. I have been struggling since December, and an entire quarter of a year is gone now forever without getting back on track. I have had a good day or a good week, and then slide back into trouble. I ha... Read more

A Study of Hats!

Thursday, March 03, 2011      3 comments

My son mentioned that our granddaughter needed a floppy hat. To keep of the sun (when it happens to come out) while out in the stroller. All you grandmas know that there is nothing more fun than getting something for a grandchild. Except... Read more

I finished a quilt for my daughter this weekend. It is only about 4 years late (was supposed to be for high school graduation). I found it when I was trying to organize my sewing stuff, and decided to get to work and finish it for her birthday... Read more

Saturday

Saturday, February 26, 2011      3 comments

I am feeling a bit better about things the last couple days. I've had a lousy cold, so maybe that has ruined my appetite, but I have felt like my eating isn't "out of control" like it sometimes is. I got a much needed haircut on Thursday, w... Read more
