Not as groggy today, but still feeling the allergys. On a good note, I have stayed within my calories for 2 days and am feeling good about it. I'm wearing my pedometer and trying to work up to 10000 steps a day. I didn't walk this morning... Read more

I think it must be the weather and allergies. Molds are high. Last night I walked nearly 2 miles with a neighbor in the heat. I don't normally walk when the temps are in the high 90's, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I sle... Read more

Finally got the courage to weigh myself this morning. What I saw has prompted me to get back to proper eating and exercise. I knew I was snacking more than I should and eating out more than I should, and I knew that I was putting some weight... Read more

It's been a good weekend so far. I got though Thanksgiving Day without really overeating. I had a small helping of everything, but I was much better than I've been in the past. I have the indoor Christmas decorations up, a reasonably clean ho... Read more

Focusing on Exercise
Wednesday, November 17, 2010      2 comments

Usually when I read articles on SP to get sparkpoints, I focus on the motivation articles, but recently I've decided to focus on exercise. I've been getting bored with my current weight loss regimen, so I've decided to change it. I'm now read... Read more

Had a great weekend. Weather was okay, sunny, not hot, a little chilly. Enough to take away the desire to work in the garden. I decide to change my reward from flowers for the garden to purchasing a pedometer instead. I brought the pedomet... Read more

Another successful day yesterday. It's amazing how your attitude can change if you just put your mind to it and just do it. Probably the thing that is helping the most right now is that I made a menu and decide I will stick to it regardless ... Read more
