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

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 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

I have been very inspired by my Spark Activity Tracker since it came a few days ago. Have surpassed 10,000 steps every day, much to my surprise. And this morning I took the dog and walked for 3 miles! Whew! Today was also my weekly weigh-in. L... Read more

Activity Tracker

Wednesday, November 12, 2014      3 comments

So I bought myself the Spark Activity Tracker and it arrived today. Not 100% sure how it works but at least I downloaded the software and synced it. As it was 8 p.m., there isn't going to be much activity today. I wonder how the system figures o... Read more

Veteran's Day/Remembrance Day, whatever way we think of it, this is a special day. All of those brave men and women who sacrificed so much for freedom. We owe them more than we can ever know. I went to our annual Veteran's Day Parade today.... Read more

From April 2013 to November 2014

Saturday, November 08, 2014      4 comments

Posted April 2013: I have had a really rough four months this year. One virus after another--cold sores, constant congestion, lock jaw. Upside down work schedule, threat of sequestration for dh and dsil, stress, stress, stress. So now it is... Read more
