Riding out the Storm
Last night I had a bit of an emotional set-back. I think I mentioned I'm going through some stuff. Anyway, I was feeling upset and after journaling about it, I decided to go for a walk. It was supposed to rain all day, but it kept getting pushed... Read more
More Good Than Bad
I really do feel more motivated than I've been in a while to stick to my efforts! I'm not 100% perfect about it, but I'm not letting that derail me. As usual, I'm keeping close tabs in Sparkpeople and in my lil spreadsheet. So I know where I'm ... Read more

Biggest Loser Update
Here's a quick update on how Biggest Loser is going: UGH!
I started the first week off GREAT and then fizzled by the end of the week. Truth is I have some personal stuff going on right now that's a bit... um.... chaotic. So it's been harder... Read more
Day 6 of Biggest Loser
Oops. I went off the rails yesterday. Overdid it, eating-wise, all day long, especially at dinner at a Mexican restaurant. I'm still full.
Back on track today. Lots and lots of water.... Read more
Day 5 of Biggest Loser
Today... get ready. You are NOT gonna believe this. I ran IN THE MORNING. I am NOT a morning person. I like to run at 4 or 5 pm. But I did it. I'm still building up stamina since I had a cold. So... there was MUCH walking on this run, but hey, I... Read more

Day 2 of Biggest Loser
Yesterday I ran.
Today I hiked.
Both days I went a bit over my own calorie goal, but not over Sparkpeople's maximum for me. Something to continue to work at.

Facing the Music
Howdy! I'm doing a little better with eating and exercise -- getting back on track! Hurrah!

Ice, Ice Baby
Today in paradise, EVERYTHING is closed due to icy conditions. I'm hoping things melt or get cleared away by late morning so I can venture out.
Yesterday I managed to eat a little better -- not quite in the 1200-1300 range I was aiming for.... Read more
January: Fresh Beginnings!
I vanished! Like magic!
No, really, I've just got a whole lot of personal stuff going on right now. I can see why losing weight worked for me a few years back. I had the time and space in my life to 100% obsess on food and exercise. Now… i... Read more
Eating and Sleeping for Health
My sleeping struggle continues, but I do believe I've gotten my appetite back.
A friend sent me some Advocare SleepWorks, and it worked like a charm two nights ago. Last night, not so much. I only took a half dose both nights. I'll try a f... Read more
