I had steroid injections for my arthritic back yesterday and today I feel like a new person! No pain, I can walk and sit and bend. I realized that I was getting used to having pain but what I didn't realize was how much it was restricting my a... Read more

Late night eating

Monday, January 12, 2015      3 comments

once again I had over 500 calories after 7pm. It's like controlling my eating during the day is my job and at nite I'm off work. That's how I got here in the first place. I also have to stop looking at my calories in the evening. I think to myse... Read more

A shout out to my Sparkspeople friends for holding me accountable. I was reminded I need a plan to conquer my late evening snacking problem. So far I've acknowledged its a problem. This past week I made note of why I might be doing it. ... Read more

Food choices

Saturday, January 03, 2015      2 comments

Looking back over the holidays there were some good choices and many not so good. I managed to not lick the spoon or nibble when baking cookies this year. Next year, I'll be chewing gum to avoid more nibbling. I'm guilty of "eating while... Read more

2015 habits

Friday, January 02, 2015      3 comments

I read elsewhere its better to form new habits or lose old ones than to set goals. So the habit I want for 2015 is 40 ACTIVE minutes per day, as tracked by my FitBit. Added to my other daily activity, I should easily reach a yearly 25000 fitne... Read more

Back from Christmas vacation

Friday, December 26, 2014      2 comments

Went to Valley of Fire north of Las Vegas. Beautiful, quiet, star-filled red rock scenery. Lots of walking, reminded myself how easy it is to get in 10,000 steps a day. I need to expand my territory beyond the four walls of the house more ofte... Read more

Avi scale

I bought an AVI scale, from the FitBit folks last year in November and it synchs to SP so I have a solid record of my weight, most every day. 2014 was tough and I crept up over 7lbs since I bought that scale. The thing is, I'm good about weigh... Read more

I'm angry

Wednesday, December 17, 2014      2 comments

I got the results of my MRI and I have degenerative arthritis in my spine. Lots of folks over 50 get it. The thing that made me angry is the General Practioner wants to refer me to a Pain Specialist. Not once did he mention me being 50 lbs ov... Read more

End of November

Sunday, November 30, 2014      4 comments

It's soooo easy to "say" I'm going to do something than it is to actually do it! I am trying to reach my yearly goal of 24,000 fitness minutes. Today, I finally broke 20,000. 4K in 31 days would be a big stretch, but I do know I can reach 2K ... Read more
