Still not quite consistent but....

Monday, April 25, 2016      5 comments

It has been almost 2 weeks since I've last blogged. Have had up and down days in terms of food intake. But exercise has been pretty consistent. No weight loss as yet, owing to the food intake issue. I am still so very addicted to chocolate. Sayi... Read more

It's a new day, a new life, a new me

Tuesday, April 12, 2016      10 comments

So today I made a momentous decision to quit my part-time job as a substitute teacher. I had a heart-to-heart with a good friend and realized that (1) I really don't enjoy it the way I thought I did (as my friend said, if you come home from an a... Read more

Back to Beck 3 -- Eating Sitting Down

Tuesday, October 20, 2015      5 comments

I am struggling, really struggling. After Day 4, Give Myself Credit, I had an anxiety attack the next day and overate. Not a huge binge but not good eating either. The next day I lost track of what I ate. It's not that I am bingeing. It's ... Read more

Beck Day 4 - Give Myself Credit

Saturday, October 17, 2015      2 comments

Tonight I am really pleased that I pushed myself out of my chair and did 30 minutes of Leslie Sansone Slim & Sleek Walk. It was tough--I was tired and I really wanted to lie on the couch. But I reminded myself of my goals and how important they ... Read more

Beck Day 3 - Sit down to eat

Friday, October 16, 2015      3 comments

Very difficult for me to do. I am by nature a grazer. Which of course is one reason why these 20 pounds have crept up on me. But I did fairly well today. I sat down to eat my cereal and milk. Instead of going to the drive-through as I was drivin... Read more

Beck Day 1, 2

Wednesday, October 14, 2015      4 comments

Yep, here I am again. Starting over. Okay, well, at least I am smart enough to start again. I went to see a new doctor today, an osteopath. My old doctor didn't give me any information after she had her nurse call me two weeks ago to say "Your x... Read more

I hate mirrors

Thursday, September 10, 2015      5 comments

I really do. I also hate scales. I have been fairly good (not perfect, but I think pretty darned good) at keeping within my calorie range, exercising, etc., and this morning I weighed myself and I am UP 2 pounds!! And that makes a total GAIN of ... Read more

Four Days of Tracking Eating

Thursday, August 06, 2015      3 comments

Hmmm, well it's Thursday night and I have just finished totaling my calorie consumption for the day. I ended up with (probably because calorie counting is not an exact science) about -100 calories according to SP. I guess (I always get confused ... Read more

74 days of consistent exercise, now to tackle calories

Monday, August 03, 2015      10 comments

I am pleased to report that I have not missed a day of walking for at least 30 minutes in 74 days! Yay me!! Now that that habit is firmly "stuck", it is time to tackle the calorie/sugar habit. Beginning today, I am adding consistent calorie... Read more

45 days of consistent exercise!

Monday, July 06, 2015      5 comments

I have done really well on exercising. Not only have I been walking at least 30 minutes (and usually 45-60) a day but I have also been attending water aerobics classes and Chair Zumba. Chair Zumba is fun--our instructor is excellent and we have ... Read more

Up to 29 days consistent 30 minutes

Friday, June 19, 2015      2 comments

I am happy about that streak. It's been tough, especially as we are now into 100+ degree weather. I walk the dog early in the morning and I go to water aerobics still. I was supposed to do Chair Zumba and/or Water Zumba yesterday but once I'd wa... Read more

14 day streak

Thursday, June 04, 2015      4 comments

It has been a long time since I blogged. 2015 has been a challenging year--good things that were supposed to be relaxing and turned out to be challenging, friends ill, marital ups and downs. And it is now June. I went to a local Wellness Depot t... Read more

Day 15 and 16 - still streaking

Saturday, January 10, 2015      2 comments

I have lost a little of my 'oomph' over my disappointing weigh/measure results on Thursday but I am hanging in there. Have consumed some extra dark chocolate the past couple of days but extra exercise cancelled that out in terms of calories. Not... Read more

Day 13 & 14 Still streaking but not an ounce gone :(

Thursday, January 08, 2015      3 comments

Well that was discouraging this morning. My weight is EXACTLY what it was last Thursday--156.6. Nothing changed. Fat % (according to my Weight Watchers scale) exactly the same as well. Then I measured myself. The only change was a .5" MORE on my... Read more

Day 11 & 12 - Thank you friends!

Tuesday, January 06, 2015      4 comments

Thanks for all of the encouragement! And for the good advice about wearing the Tracker on my sock. I hadn't thought of that! I am waiting for my Activity Tracker to load the rest of my steps today--made it to 10,000--teaching first grade re... Read more
