Obsession
Sunday, December 03, 2017      1 comments

On Friday I set a goal to walk 30 minutes a day and to be mindful of what I eat. I am not going to track yet, I end up feeling frustrated and quitting. I realized while walking today that one of the reasons I end up feeling frustrated by track... Read more
Convincing myself
Friday, December 01, 2017      8 comments

Here I am. Again. I feel like a failure. I look back at my history on SP and wonder why I let myself get back to where I started (plus a little). I did it. I got there. And then.... here I am again. And I've been to the "here again" party... Read more
Wake up call from the Endo doc today
Wednesday, June 29, 2016      2 comments

I have Hashimotos and up until about 2 years ago I didn't really experience the full impact of what that means to me and my body. As I'm aging I'm getting crash course in my autoimmune disease and consequently dealing with issues. One of the... Read more
FitBit & Tracking on SP Accurately
Wednesday, June 29, 2016      1 comments

Way back in 2010 when I started using Spark People I didn't have any gadgets or even a gym membership. Since then I began using a FitBit to remind me to keep moving every day. When things waned for me on SP I started using MFP to see if that w... Read more
Ugh - skip the dressing
Wednesday, June 15, 2016      4 comments

I ran out of time this morning to make lunch for work today. My choices were a protein bar or eating out. I'm a food person and have a hard time with substituting bars and shakes for my meals. (I have been doing protein shakes for breakfast with... Read more
It's a Monday Thing
Monday, June 13, 2016      2 comments

One of the things I can't seem to do is to keep on track and stay focused. This weekend was hard for me to track because of different reasons. So, I told myself to refocus on Monday. I kind of feel bad for Monday because it's always tasked as th... Read more
8 Months Later - Dusting off the Login again
Friday, June 10, 2016      3 comments

The struggle is real. I have toyed with 3-5 pounds on and off and on and off. Problem is, each time on seems to be +4 - 6 pounds and now I'm back up to where I was (if not more) in 2010. I have no motivation. I'm disappointed in myself ... Read more
Being Nice to Myself
Wednesday, October 14, 2015      3 comments

I started falling into an old habit of criticizing myself because of my weight gain. I've caught myself more than once being mean to myself. Mostly when it's time to get ready to go somewhere and nothing fits right anymore. That's usually whe... Read more
Dusting off my Log In
Monday, October 12, 2015      3 comments

I reset my goals today. I updated my page, I cleaned up my friends list, and browsed the teams and the community pages. I've been gone from Spark People about 2 years or so. The last time my status changed was 875 days ago or something crazy li... Read more
Insanity and Fitbit
Saturday, April 06, 2013      5 comments

I took my 2nd Insanity class today at the gym I belong to - and I love it! The first time I was a little unsure of some of the transitions and exercises. Today, I pushed a little more and I feel it already. Love the energy in the class. For no... Read more
To Fitbit or not to Fitbit?
Saturday, March 30, 2013      4 comments

I've been thinking about getting a Fitbit but not sure if it's really worth it once the "novelty" has worn off -- and I'm not sure which one would be best. I like the features that are described on the website for the new one being released in ... Read more
Loosely on Track
Wednesday, March 13, 2013      4 comments

About a 1 1/2 years ago I had this great momentum, push, energy, and drive. I ate really well, exercised daily, and tracked it all. Lost all kinds of weight, was feeling really good and enjoying it all. Not sure where it all slowed down or cha... Read more
Hyperthinking about my food
Wednesday, February 06, 2013      2 comments

Lately I have noticed that I am hyper-thinking about my food. Once I'm up and functioning in the morning (2 cups of coffee, some email, Sparkpeople and Facebook in that order), it's time for breakfast. I have to wait an hour after I take my mor... Read more
Love the Spark Friends in my Head
Friday, February 01, 2013      4 comments

I had a pretty un-sparky week this week. I didn't track everything and managed to give myself excuses to stay out of the gym or do anything at home. I know I ate more than I should have, and made a couple of (a few?) poor choices. ( On the upsi... Read more
The week, Zumba & Cara Cara oranges
Friday, January 25, 2013      2 comments

This week wasn't the best for me. I had great intentions on my husbands birthday but threw caution to the wind and ate waaay to much. But it was good and it was just that day. I didn't get to the gym or to walk earlier this week - I was derailed... Read more
