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

Day10 - made it over a week!

Sunday, January 04, 2015      10 comments

I have now completed two 7-day streaks--tracking calories (and staying within calorie range) and exercise minutes. I haven't done that for three years! Now to keep on breaking records! One thing that does frustrate me a bit is that I only w... Read more

Day 9 and still streaking :)

Saturday, January 03, 2015      3 comments

I have navigated the dangers of the post-holiday "there are still goodies in the house" slump. I have kept exercising at least 30 minutes a day, usually do 60 minutes. I still have to improve on my water drinking but my diet soda consumption is ... Read more

Day 7 -

Thursday, January 01, 2015      3 comments

Well did the great weigh-in just now (7:30 a.m.) 156.6 pounds with measurements not changed from the past month. Not thrilled about the number--was hoping for 154--but if that's the number after a week of being "on plan", I must have been seriou... Read more

Day 5 & 6 - still streaking!

emoticon Finished two more days of staying on track!! Even with today's windy weather, where walking the dog had to... Read more

Day 4 - A successful "danger" day

Monday, December 29, 2014      7 comments

I had a couple of emotional upsets today. That can lead me to the pantry/gas station but it didn't this time. Why? Because I told myself I am doing well and that I didn't need that junk food. And somehow the urge passed. Woohoo! I was 400 s... Read more

Day 2 & Day 3 -- the streak continues

Sunday, December 28, 2014      3 comments

Just finishing my third day of healthy streaking. I lost track of how much water I drank but I did drink at least 7 cups if not 8. I ate very carefully, thinking about my food choices, choosing more veggies. I had lentil soup for lunch today. I ... Read more
