Book review

Sunday, March 22, 2015      0 comments

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

Sunday, February 15, 2015      2 comments

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

Wednesday, February 11, 2015      1 comments

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

February the longest month

Monday, February 02, 2015      1 comments

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

New Year

Saturday, January 03, 2015      1 comments

I did what I usually do on New Year's. Year of the Sheep, I got out my little papier-mâché sheep and wooden sheep plaques, made a simple sheep painting for my new year's letter to my friend. We had festive but calorie-contained dinners and jus... Read more

Uptick in weight after Christmas week

Sunday, December 28, 2014      2 comments

So predictable. I have one more week on my work challenge to shave off 0.4 lb in order to "maintain don't gain". The rich foods in the house are diminishing in number and I am still exercising. Happy new year to all fellow sparkpeople!... Read more

Lost another pound

Saturday, December 20, 2014      1 comments

WooHoo! Glad to see that line on the graph starting to trend downward. This coming week is the hardest possible week for weight loss, for me, so if I can maintain I'd be more than happy. Going to see NP on 1/16 so I'd like to see progress by the... Read more

Ramping up the yoga practice

Friday, December 19, 2014      1 comments

Today I got back into yoga after 2 days off. I'm so excited about my new app called "yoga studio" and my new Bluetooth style speaker so I can hear the instructor without earbuds & wires. I did my first class, and was almost able to keep up. A fe... Read more

Tuesday, December 16, 2014      2 comments

The evenings are very dark and long right now, but I have got some energy and hopefulness going. I was surprised to learn that I have 52 weeks of exercising more than 75 min... Read more

Back on track with habits, but weight?

Wednesday, May 07, 2014      1 comments

I am going to weigh myself in the next day or 2, so I will have an answer to this, but I don't know how my weight is responding to tracking consistently and exercising 150 minutes a week. My weight has been bouncing around, going down sometimes... Read more

Positive: DH and I are downloading the menu ideas from a SP challenge called "FitFood", and we have come across some good new ideas for quick & healthy meals. Negative: I am eating over my calorie range 5 of the last 6 days and I don't kn... Read more

Series of speed bumps on my road to wellness

Tuesday, January 14, 2014      1 comments

So. I was terrified of going to my primary care doctor's yesterday. For one thing I knew I had gained weight. Second, my other doctor tested my cholesterol panel and the numbers were not good. Glucose also not good. But the surprise speed b... Read more
