Okay, so much for trying to fly solo with no accountability...
Nearly a year and just over 15 lbs later, I have decided to reset. Not likely that I'll be able to spend a great deal of time on SP this go round, but at least I can still log a... Read more
Wendy's, Chick-Fil-A, Popeye's, Turtle Soup & Dark Chocolate
No...not all today. :) Here are some snapshots from this past week.
Life doesn't move with smooth... Read more
Last night's blog entry describes my newest physical challenge...bit o' pain there as well. Tried to throw some humor into it...lemme know if I failed miserably when you read it. ;-)
But, one thing I didn't touch on was the NSV that was co... Read more
No, it's not about a dysfunctional fear of running out of BBQ ribs...wish it were!
An hour or so after I got to work today, I turned to answer the phone and immediately sucked my breath in sharply as it felt like someone was jabbing a penci... Read more
Some Things I'm Learning
Okay, so every now and then, you have to stop and think about what you've learned. Here's a brief list of things that have been impressed on my mind lately.
1. I need to eat more fish. ... Read more
Hidden Sodium, Groaning Scale
I had Chinese for lunch on Sunday, and knew that I'd be a bit over calories for the day, but that I had room for it. I had the tiny cup of Egg Drop soup (with fried Wonton crunchies), and the Egg Roll. But, I only ate about 1/3 of the Shrimp Fri... Read more
Just a Blog
This is a blog just to blog. Nothing major to report. The Chinese food was way higher in calories than I expected, even though I only ate half my plate. And I have to wash out all the excess sodium it gave me...I hate feeling puffy. Not to menti... Read more
Starting the year, I decided to challenge myself to get back into the routines that I had established before the holidays and my roomie's wedding, etc.
In the face of that, I managed to log a few NSV's the last 2 weeks...
After re-esta... Read more
Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds!
Okay...I didn't make it to the gym tonight, for various reasons. However, I did manage to get in some exercise.
What I just finished was the Day 1 video from the January Jumpstart Challenge. 8 min of butt-kicking interval cardio! I think my... Read more
A Chocolate Buffet!
Yes, a chocolate buffet. Really. A couple of us took a friend out for his birthday...he wanted to go to Jazz Live at the Hyatt in N.O., to hear Anais St John sing and to sample the gourmet Chocoholics Buffet.
I planned for it, knowing I'd ... Read more
Working in a Red Hat
Okay, so I took the Santa hat to work...boss was okay with me wearing it. :)
Today was weird...I slept short last night (stayed up too late), and this morning, I could barely drag myself up, so I didn't get a decent b'fast or manage to set ... Read more
Is Up the New Down?
A la Vinny Barbarino, "I'm so confused!" (for you youngsters, that's from the show Welcome Back, Kotter)
After my crazy sodium extravagance earlier this week, I had 2 decent sodium days, and almost stayed within my calorie ranges.
With... Read more
Accountability & A Santa Hat
Okay, for the purpose of accountability, I'm blogging tonight.
I just over-topped my calorie range today, because I really, really, really wanted a shot of spiked egg nog tonight. And that upped my sodium just a bit from what I logged on th... Read more
I Can't Relax This Much
Well, like other SparkFriends, I find that I'm learning something about myself and my journey this month.
I had decided early on, that with the multitude of events, I wasn't going to worry about losing anything this month, but wanted to gua... Read more
Long Time No Blog
Okay, so it's been a while...10 days to be precise. Most of that time, I've been sick - allergies with secondary sinus infection, followed by a nagging cough that wouldn't let me sleep. So, I've barely been making it through my days, what with w... Read more
