Long term process

Saturday, October 31, 2015      2 comments

I have higher cholesterol again. I am taking a long term approach to the long term process of becoming healthier, not rushing into promises of multiple reforms. I have been reading SP articles, particularly a 10 part series by Dean Anderson call... Read more

Anxious waiting

Tuesday, August 11, 2015      4 comments

Waiting for a family member to return from a week long trip. I have been home with dd and I think we are both tired of being out of our routines. Good: lost a few pounds and am exactly at my SP "starting point" once again, I am tracking almost e... Read more

Today marks 2 new challenges starting. One, which some family members are also joining, is the Spring Training exercise challenge at my workplace. We record our exercise minutes as a team and compete for prizes with other teams. It always gets m... Read more

I hope I never get tired of starting over

Saturday, April 18, 2015      4 comments

I seem to have a love-hate relationship with tracking and exercising. Well I am doing both again after being weighed at the doctor's and being 6 lb over my baseline. I know, scales are different, and clothing and time of day. Still I was unpleas... Read more

Back to tracking once more

Thursday, April 02, 2015      3 comments

Well, I've once again convinced myself that I can't do "intuitive" or "instinctive" eating. In the last 3-4 weeks I have asked myself "am I hungry" countless times and found that the answer didn't affect my eating decision. There is too much con... Read more

Book review

I just read Eat what you love, Love what you eat by Michelle May MD. Much of it is taken directly from Am I Hungry? Her first book. But I like how it included emotional hurdles and issues in the discussion of why we eat, what we eat etc. also, i... Read more

Back to tracking

Yes once again I strayed from tracking, and my weight is inching up. Today, back to tracking, and I walked for 15 minutes in very cold weather without any problems. My goal is to do yoga & PT later. I started reading a book called "Am I Hungry?"... Read more

Cold snap

There are some things that are good to do in below zero weather: make ice outside, freeze ice blocks for my ice wall in the yard, de-moth my wool yarn by deep freezing it. As well as favored indoor pursuits. My energy is at an all time low howev... Read more

We have somehow gotten thru January and February greeted us with the biggest snowstorm in 2 years. We got off easy compared to many, still had our share of digging out. I am skipping an unofficial work challenge called Summer Shredder which is a... Read more

Snow shoveling

Monday, January 26, 2015      4 comments

Great workout that snow. I almost broke my shovel. Winter comeback continues. I had really good eating today including 6 F/V. Has anybody read the book "eat what you love, love what you eat"? I just heard about it today, there's a book club at w... Read more

Tracking, and in a slump

Saturday, January 24, 2015      3 comments

After a brief hiatus from tracking, I came back to it. I need the structure of calorie, exercise and weight tracking. I'm not someone who can go it intuitively or keep things in my head, remember or guesstimate. So I am back to tracking everythi... Read more

I had to take a hiatus from all tracking, goals and checklists for about a week. Having finished "Maintain Don't Gain" at work, a challenge that involved a lot of keeping track, I was sort of burned out. I thought I would reassess on 1/19, MLK J... Read more
