That Inner Two-Year Old
I read a SparkPeople article this morning about revamping your morning routine to make it less stressful. Apparently, the more frenzied your morning routine is, the more likely your 'inner two-year old' is likely to gain control. This can lead... Read more
Really, it's not gonna happen unless I DO it.
I come to this realization every now and again: The Think Method (see the Music Man) doesnt really work for weight loss and fitness. You have to actually DO it. huh, go figure.
I gotta do this alone now, since my walking buddy moved on to... Read more
It's true, it's true, and I am so embarassed.
I answered a poll question today about how I am doing on my goals since the first of the year.
I had to be truthful, although I was tempted to be less harsh and say, oh, I havent made much progress. That would be a lie. I haven't made any pr... Read more

And yet, I am not wasting MUCH time.
No that's not true, I am wasting A... Read more

Life is What Happens When You Make Other Plans

Hope all is well now, no positive results, but I'll tell ... Read more
I Haven't Been Hiding
or maybe I have. I do know I have not been posting on my SparkTeam message boards, and my food tracking has been dismal for the last few days.
I binged a couple times, but not really awful, and try to keep on track with my eating anyway. ... Read more
My primary care doc sent me to Weight Management. My gyn said I had a difficult exam 'due to abdominal girth'. My clothes dont fit anymore, and the ones that do are wearing out!
The Weight Management group doc gave me a whole new path to ... Read more
ok, so what's wrong with my scale.....
Nothing. I just havent been getting the exercise in the way I should. And I have not been rigorous in eating those fruits and veggies. I always get at least 3 in each day, but it is offset by the other carbs I find myself eating.

I am workin' on it
Since I sit at home all day, it is very easy to eat all day. I have figured out how to eat something healthy for me every couple hours but I am not tracking calories. I do write everything that goes into my mouth down into a notebook - ruthles... Read more
I Sense I Will Have To Power My Way Through Today
There is no doubt I am tired, but the weather today will continue to beckon me outside.
Right now I plan to walk to the store to pick up a few (lightweight) things. It's only about 1/2 mile each way, and it has a slope up on the way, but... Read more
