Back from Christmas vacation
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
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 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
Only 600 points to the next Spark trophy, it's fun to chase them and keeps me motivated. I'm at 21,117 fitness points today, reaching 24K by YE is still within reach, I've got to make every day count. It's really helping me focus on doing some... Read more
End of November
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
The past couple of days I've been paying attention to how I feel when I want to eat. I know I'm an emotional eater but I didn't realize how ingrained a habit it is! Even the tinest annoyance and I start thinking about eating something to "feel... Read more
Road trip lessons
My weight is up, thanks to 1) not enough moving and 2) eating whatever is available.
What works when travelling is 1) taking snacks (for the airplane) and not buying more.
2) knowing what is good (healthy, calorie appropriate) at fast food r... Read more
road trips are hard to stay on track
Travelling across country by car is a challenge to my diet, exercise and routine. It's eye opening to recognize how my mind thinks about these things when travelling. I plan on working while I travel so I've go to get a routine like I have at ... Read more
Yell at me please!!
I'm travelling again and I'm overating. I treat the necessity of having to eat but being on a trip as an excuse to have desserts every night, eat 3 full meals even thought I spent a lot of time just sitting in an airplane or a car, stopping at ... Read more

It's been a stressful year, some of it self-inflicted! I saw ups and downs in my weight and had more back pain. I have stuck with daily Yoga when ... Read more
I gotta learn
I have been cutting out wheat but last night I went to Chompies (a deli) and had pastries. I'm paying for it this morning in stomach upset. I cannot eat the stuff. Not to mention the high calories associated with wheat products. My husband i... Read more
One week No Wheat
Well, almost. I had a bagel in there one day and a half a hamburger bun. It already seems to be making a difference. I'm keeping this up.... Read more
I've been reading a blog of someone who follows a No Sugar No Grain diet with a 5% leeway, that is, 5% of their eating can be these items. I recognize that I am much more satiated when I eat more protein and less carbs and that I snack more whe... Read more
I had a great two weeks of walking the beach in Florida, only one day where my back gave me trouble. But since I've been home, my lower back has been giving me problems. It has given me an authentic appreciation for chronic pain sufferers. I'... Read more
