What a Great Day!
Virtual journey first: Down to 78.5 miles to Eureka! I walked 14029 steps and that was 4.6 miles.
I stayed within range for food in most respects. Low in fat (really?) and low in calcium....Balance is still not there.
The day at work... Read more
Less Than 10K and I Don't Want to Do More!
I got in 8458 steps today, short of my 10K. Little aches with my weaker leg and a big ache in my hand. I know the hand does not impact walking, but the pain is such that I choose not! I suspect it's arthritis or some other inflamation. It's t... Read more
Syttende Mai and Body Barometer
Who needs a weather report when the body tells you?! I knew the rain was coming without having to consult an expert! My left index finger hurts as if all the arthritis in the world is in the joints! I felt very stiff all day.
But, really, I... Read more
A Day of Rest and Blessing Continue!
Ever since my 135 seconds on the elliptical last week, my weaker leg has been pretty sore. I have kept walking but not much else. I have been very stiff in the morning. Today, I decided it would be a true day of rest and, other than shopping,... Read more
Stolen Bicycle Returned!
Today was a day of blessing. This was not because of anything to do with my SparkPeople journey. As far as the journey goes, a mixed bag. I had a walk, got in the water and ate within range, but did not eat in balance. It was all protein and... Read more
Pitfall: MoGo BBQ
All week long, I'd been hearing about the MoGo BBQ truck that was coming to work today - sort of a Korean twist on Mexican food. I don't know why, but I never thought to calculate the food. I made what I thought was a lower calorie choice, but... Read more
Elliptical Silliness, CSR, Food, Work and Water
Today was a much better day, not for any one thing, but for all of it. The morning flew by because I was dealing with tax exempt certificates. A simple task but time intensive.
Avoiding stairs is paying off. I had a couple of walks toda... Read more
I Think I Really Screwed Up
I knocked a little off my calorie range yesterday because I don't think I am exercising enough to lose tonnage and I just can't do more right now. I had not forgotten that I had increased the range a few weeks ago because I was beyond tired thr... Read more
"Acting as If" and Other Great Day Musings
So much to say today! First off, THANK YOU SparkFriends! Your comments in response to my blogs, on my page and on message boards gave me a thread to hang on until I could start to change the channel. I would not still be on SparkPeople without ... Read more
On Empty and Fighting It
Today, I reduced my calorie range. I know everyone says that's the wrong thing to do, but I think the other side of that coin is that I am still not doing enough exercise and I am not in a space where I can or want to increase that.
When t... Read more
Mothers Day = Not in a Good Mental Space
Mothers Day is a day I would rather ignore. There, I said it. At least I did not say I hate mother's day. That would be too harsh. My birth mother is still alive but we have not had a relationship by her choice since she kicked me out when I... Read more
Cookies and Cream Klondike Bar and Letter Carrier Food Drive
I woke up feeling very, very, very stiff. I had hoped to do 12K steps today. I took a walk this morning for something over 5K. Just before I left the house, I turned just a little and gave myself a slight groin pull. I moved very carefully a... Read more
Burnt Out, Nervous and Amazed
I woke up this morning feeling really lousy in a nonspecific way. I called in sick, which I did not want to do, but I just knew had I dragged in, I would have wasted the time at work. I missed out on the overtime, but I guess that falls into t... Read more
Balance is Elusive
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
