Setting Goals

Monday, June 21, 2010      3 comments

Goals need to be concrete, achievable, challenging, and time-limited. I know a lot about setting goals from my years working with autistic children. I realize that I said my vision incorrectly yesterday. Instead of "become," it should say "... Read more

Remember to breathe.

So I've had a few meltdowns this weekend, over wedding stuff. Too much to do, not enough time to do it in, etc. etc. Not fun. Then this morning I was going to wear a particular outfit and I put on the top and it looked awful because I've gained ... Read more

Taking it easy.

So far, so good. I am feeling relaxed, which is a nice change. Lack of stress is good for the Janna. ;) Yesterday I made some poor food choices and ate a LOT of junk food. But I paid for it - felt rather gross most of the evening. So I will... Read more

I always do the grand proclamation thing.

You know, the one about how I'm going to change this, that, and the other, and make tons of good changes, and be a whole new and different person? Yeah, not so much anymore. I was in Calgary doing wedding prep stuff a couple of weeks a... Read more

A new adventure (or a revisit of an old adventure)!

I hate to admit it, but I've been really lax on... well, everything lately. I haven't been exercising like I ought, I haven't been eating like I ought, I haven't been focusing on the things I want to focus on. And I can't even blame it on weddin... Read more

I am so tired today!

I don't want to go to Curves, but I will. I'm just so tired. I babysat last night and didn't get to bed until nearly 2.00 a.m. I wasn't tired then, but I sure am today! I think my sleep cycle has cycled through, and since I'm not on ADHD medicat... Read more

Sleepy but happy. :)

Well, yesterday was my first day on the Curves eating plan. I'm in Phase 1, which has me eating 1200 calories a day for seven days. Then I'll be moving into Phase 2. I didn't get hungry AT ALL yesterday. In fact, I am thinking about moving ... Read more

Hooray for Curves!

Something I've been wanting to do for ages is join Curves. I finally did that a couple of weeks ago, and on Friday (my fifth workout) I got started on the CurveSmart Program. I am so excited about what this program can do for me if I continue go... Read more

Jumping Back On...?

Tuesday, December 01, 2009      2 comments

November has been a crazy month. It was NaNoWriMo ( ) and I am a Municipal Liaison (ML), which means I organized in-person events all month. We have one more event coming up, on Saturday. The goal of the month is to... Read more

The Daily Regime - Day Four

Friday, September 25, 2009      3 comments

Well, I still need to tweak. Tomorrow I'm going to try my modifications to Monday-Wednesday-Friday. We'll see how that goes. I'm not sure what's going to happen with the weekend; I'll decide later. I started knitting a tea cosy today. ... Read more

The Daily Regime - Day Three

Thursday, September 24, 2009      2 comments

Well, today was better than Monday. I ate too many carbs, though. Obviously I need to eat more protein at breakfast. So I will have to think about that and change things up for Friday (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are the same how I've done my ... Read more

The Daily Regime - Day Two

Tuesday, September 22, 2009      2 comments

Today was good. I had mozzarella cheese for my breakfast and wasn't hungry until lunch time! The only problem is that 4 oz of cheese is A LOT of cheese and really kind of gross. :P So when I have it again next week I'm going to have 2 oz only. ... Read more

The Daily Regime - Day One

Tuesday, September 22, 2009      2 comments

Well, so far so good. I need to tweak the diet some, though; I didn't eat anywhere NEAR enough today, and I was hungry a lot! I think I can fix that with juice "snacks" and twice as much salad and twice as much meat as I ate today. It actually w... Read more

Time for a change...

Well, I'm completely sick of being stuck at 230 lbs. I've been stuck here since June or something, and I am DONE. I have tried a number of things since I hit this plateau, and I'm so discouraged I stopped tracking and everything. Well,... Read more

I almost missed it - ten years ago today...

Saturday, August 22, 2009      5 comments

Ten years ago today, I embarked upon this strange and wonderful journey. It was the day I started my training in Lovaas-style Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). I was one member of a five-person team of therapists who would be coming in to the fa... Read more
