Balance is Elusive

Friday, May 07, 2010      2 comments

I got over 7K steps today without working at it. My knee is really sore, so I skipped the stairs and used the elevator. I chafe at this because this week is just gorgeous: clear sky, light breeze and cool enough to walk at lunch. I savor eve... Read more

A month or so ago, on the one day challenge team, the suggestion was to create a visual representation of either pounds lost or of pound to be lost. I decided to do both. I gathered up a bunch of those paperclips that are covered in colorful p... Read more

Came home to find BF not home. That means dinner was not ready. I wasn't hungry, so that was ok for a while. Hours later, I made something quickly. Not the most healthy thing, but not the worst (no junk in my house). Feeling guilty for bein... Read more

Awards, Spreading the Spark and Loving the SP Community

Tuesday, May 04, 2010      5 comments

I received several SP trophies today. The 15 pounder and the 3 month Sparkversary are ones I added. I had not really thought about logging on every day, accumulating pints and was stunned to see I'd racked up 1000 minutes! ME! I had so many sl... Read more

Who Says "Diet" Food Can't Be Yummy?

Sunday, May 02, 2010      6 comments

I have been so tired today, just a slug. My plan of a long walk did not happen and neither did much else. My shoulder pain spread to most of my back and hurt all day. Now, nearly lights out, it feels a bit better. I'm frustrated that every t... Read more

45 Seconds, Rubber Legs and Sparking at the Grocery Store

Sunday, May 02, 2010      6 comments

Today started with such great intentions. I was going to go to work so I could study for my midterm in peace, then go to the little gym at work and work with weights. Then I was going to come home, grab BF and run errands, thus clearing the de... Read more

I Beat the Elevator and Other Friday Evening Musings

Saturday, May 01, 2010      7 comments

A good night's sleep did make a difference! I clicked off over 11300 steps today. I made sure I ate something every 2-3 hours and did not feel abnormally tired. I ended the day within nutrition range except for being low in calcium and ach... Read more

Thank you, SparkFriends, for your comments on yesterday's blog. Today was one of those days just full of irritations, nothing went smoothly and I was not in a good mood. Not much energy. Feeling overwhelmed in so many ways. I skipped t... Read more

Steps and Swirling Thoughts

Thursday, April 29, 2010      6 comments

I made sure I grabbed my pedometer on my way out the door today. Three short walks and lots of walking around at work and I made it to 11,090. Sixty minutes of moderate walking for 3.6 miles. I'm still having trouble keeping the energy up... Read more

Forgot My Pedometer!

Tuesday, April 27, 2010      8 comments

I was driving to work when I realized I had forgotten to pick up my pedometer for the day - first day I've done that since I got it. I almost turned around but decided to accept the challenge and see what I could do solo. I can only guess ... Read more

What an Odd Day!

Monday, April 26, 2010      7 comments

Obviously, 10K steps every day is too much for me. Scaling back. I will aim for 7K and be happy with 5K on my less active days. I expect there will be several days a week when I hit 10K or come very close. But I will work towards 10K a day. ... Read more

A First! (I may pay for this tomorrow!)

Sunday, April 25, 2010      10 comments

Thanks to all who commented on yesterday's blog! I am not sure if I lost even an ounce or stayed the same as last week. Either way, the fact that I did not gain is a real win! Today was a much different day! This morning, I saw a blog f... Read more

TOM Costs a Day

Sunday, April 25, 2010      8 comments

Absolutely no energy today despite intentions and lovely weather. Mr. Scale is not likely to be charitable tomorrow morning and neither will his partner, Ms. Tape-Measure. Just her name alone gives her airs beyond her station. Whatever th... Read more

It's All Words (Continued...) {Yes, 2 blogs in 1 day for my SparkFriends}

Friday, April 23, 2010      5 comments

I won! I won! I won! No, not the lottery, not a tangible prize. What I won was the day. I felt like a slug all day. Turns out TOM is here (whew, the suspense is over) and it's as if I've timewarped back to early teen years when TOM first visi... Read more

It's All Words (Blogging This Early is Not a Good Sign!)

Friday, April 23, 2010      7 comments

Out of curiosity, I stepped on the scale this morning. Big mistake! I am up either a pound or up 7/10ths from last Sunday. I do not feel heavier, in fact, I feel lighter. I can also see more definition in my arms and legs, feel slightly less ... Read more
