Pitfall: MoGo BBQ
Friday, May 14, 2010      8 comments

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
Thursday, May 13, 2010      6 comments

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
Thursday, May 13, 2010      10 comments

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
Tuesday, May 11, 2010      11 comments

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
Monday, May 10, 2010      7 comments

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
Sunday, May 09, 2010      10 comments

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
Saturday, May 08, 2010      7 comments

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
Saturday, May 08, 2010      7 comments

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
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
