Happy New Year!
I have been having a lovely Christmas. I have been at my parents' since December 15, and I return home on Thursday (January 6). I find that I eat really strangely when I'm at my parents', and it's not really because they eat strangely. I guess i... Read more
Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in Canada, and J and I celebrated with my brother and his family. We drove down on Sunday afternoon and we had dinner together - turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes (PURPLE potatoes!), green beans, corn, and dinner ... Read more
Week Ten: Back on the horse?
I took a couple of weeks off from SparkPeople. Well, I mean, I read posts in my teams and tracked my food and exercise for the most part, but that's about it.
I've been eating mostly okay, but I haven't been exercising as much as I was. So ... Read more
Week Eight: Making up for not reporting in last week.
I'm sorry I wasn't around last week. Well, I was around, I just didn't post. Mostly that was because I was having a bad weekend/week, and I had to lessen my expectations of myself so that I could get through the day.
I'm doing much better n... Read more
Week Six: Has it really been that long?!?
I LOST ANOTHER TWO POUNDS THIS WEEK!!!!
Can you tell I'm excited about that?
I had a difficult w... Read more
Week Five: Sticking with it.
Alas, only half a pound gone this week. I'm not worrying just yet; we'll see what next week's weigh-in says first. I might have hit a plateau, or my body might have decided to rebel at the lack of candy and chocolate and pop, or the coffees I dr... Read more
Week Four: Am I on a roll?
I lost another two pounds, everyone! Another four pounds - two weeks, if I continue like this - and I can go to Old Navy and get myself another long skirt for every day wear! I'm definitely looking forward to that!
Here are my grades from J... Read more

Week Two: In which consistency flies out the window.
Don't worry, I am far from discouraged!
Consistency is one of those things I have a lot of trouble with, probably because of my ADHD. So it's something I am continually working on in all areas of my life. This last week was a setback, but i... Read more
Week One: Attempting to maintain consistency.
So last week was my Week One, and this is my summary post. I'm having these weeks start on Monday, and I'll be posting on Mondays to talk about the previous week's progress.
First of all, I went from 252lbs to 249lbs, so focusing on eating ... Read more
Something important I learned last week.
Last Friday, July 9, I learned something very important about myself and about... well... US!
As I say on my SparkPage, my annual goal is to better my time on the hike to the Lake Agnes Tea House. This is a 3.4km hike up a mountain at Lake ... Read more
Once you've set your goals, you need to keep track of them.
I'm waiting for iTunes to finish updating so I can have some tunes while I get dressed and start editing and writing this morning, so I thought I would update my SP blog while I'm waiting. :)
One of the ways you can track your goals is to u... Read more
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
