I'm in an inbetween stage. One size is so large, slacks don't stay up, the next size down is still a smidge tight. One of these days, I'll get a full length mirror so that I will know what I look like before I leave the house! I feel chunky an... Read more

Yesterday, a friend showed me her pedometer and it's the same model several SparkFriends have recommended to me. I had hoped to buy it from her, but she recently started using it again...I can't afford one in the foreseeable future so I was sel... Read more

Happy Birthday, George Washington! (I just had to say that - I'm still not used to the consolidation for Presidents Day of Washington's and Lincoln's birthdays...) Yesterday, I logged in very little exercise. I was still sore from earlier ... Read more

What a wonderful day! A good day at work, on track with food and water and exercise! I am slowly starting to see that my energy level is improving. After I walk, I have sustained energy for a longer period of time. However, I still get very sl... Read more
Today is a Victory!
Thursday, February 18, 2010      3 comments

The fact that today was a very nice day for me highlights the difference that SparkPeople (website and community) have made in my life. I was so tempted to eat everything in sight and not be accountable yesterday - take the day off as it were. ... Read more

This morning, I huddled with some teams with "I need support". I have been amazed by the responses! I have not reached out successfully before (preSP). When I posted that, I didn't know what to expect. I am humbled by the generosity of people... Read more
Stuck? I feel like a banana slug!
Tuesday, February 16, 2010      3 comments

Last week, I walked every day at work (5 days straight). Every day I added time or increased difficulty. The campus has steep hills and stairs. Saturday, I intended to do some weight training, even though I am still clueless on that point. I... Read more

Five years ago today, my dad died from prostate cancer that metastacized into bone cancer. I held his hand as he died, the hardest thing I've ever been through, but I had to be there. My Navy brother held his other hand, and my very pregnant s... Read more
My New Mantra: No Shortcuts!
Friday, February 12, 2010      1 comments

Exercise is still a big word to me, so I look for ways to make incremental changes in how I go about my day, small ways to add movement. I walk the long way around while in the office, I don't go to the nearest coffeee bar. When time permits, ... Read more
Finding Motivation Everywhere!

I started the day with a short walk from my desk to the cafe at work. The sun was shining, the air was very cool and it was glorious! I was trying to count steps, but a visitor asked for directions and a coworker stopped to chat. I have been w... Read more
