Great Workout Day!
I had a great day! I usually take Fridays off, but I still walk. This morning I headed out the door with a plan to walk around the block. And that would be it for the day. My usual day "off". But I started carrying my pedometer for the past week... Read more
My Day got Twisted
I have had a good day so far. When I went to bed last night I got it in my head that i would walk an hour and a half today. I also decided I'd go to the Y for the elliptical workout I want to be doing once a week. I thought I might even swim on ... Read more
A Good Memorial Day Gathering
It was a great day!
Some moms are accustomed to pulling together a meal. I'm not one of those. It's only been since my kids all moved out that I started planning gatherings. Not real frequently, but I'm actually planning them and doing most... Read more
Victory with my motivators
So far the plan to reward myself with a mini-goal reward is helping. I decided to make a chart and mark it with a rubber stamp on each day I eat within range for calories. I've made it 4 out of 4 days, now, and at week's end I will have earned m... Read more
No loss, but no guilt
The only reasons I feel ok about not losing any weight this week, is that, first of all, I followed my chart and I know by looking at it that I did my best in getting my workouts in, which reminds me that I am doing good things for my body. Next... Read more
New tool to help myself get fitness minutes.
Not only did I walk 90 minutes, I remembered to do ST, circuit style, for the second time this week. I've been only doing it once a week and I know that ST is key to helping my fitness level. I start out the week with good intentions, and then a... Read more
Complements are fun to hear!
I am 119 calories away from burning my goal for the week, and it's just Wednesday. If I keep up this pace I'll have to consider upping my calories. But I'll wait and see if I'm feeling more hunger. I'm learning to eat for hunger, not just becaus... Read more
Today was a great Mother's Day!
This morning we picked up my Mom-in-law and drove 3 hours to see my daughter, her boyfriend and her two kids. They cooked us brunch and sent us home 2 hours later with 4 quarts of strawberries. My daughter had just baked ginger snaps, yum, and t... Read more
New goals, new freedom to schedule workouts
Now that I will be having more flexibility in my schedule, more freedom to schedule workouts when I want, I have to set a few goals.
Lately, I've only been swimming once a week, which is the only thing I've been doing at the Y. I want to g... Read more
Changes taking place in my life
After feeling down for quite some time, I realized my job was getting me down, working with a very negative person. I felt poisoned and I'm tempted sometimes to get involved, but not wanting to this time. I also felt more drawn to spend time wit... Read more
Blues and feeling lonesome.
This is mostly just a blog I'm writing to try to talk myself out of how I'm feeling.
Sure, last time I wrote I talked about the positive changes in lifestyle. Today i did something I'm not proud of. After not losing any weight this week, I ... Read more
Lifestyle Changes are something to notice. . .
I did something I've only done a few times since I started Sparking. I was having my breakfast and was only going to have a banana and chocolate greek yogurt. I wasn't really any hungrier for anything more. Plus, I was trying to have fewer calor... Read more
Back on track in more ways than one.
I am on top of the world. . .
for more than one reason...yet foremost on my mind is the way my moods settled down now that a bit of time has passed since our trip. I'm sure the emotionalism I had related a lot to how sensitive my system is... Read more
More steps last night
Last night after dinner my hubby asked if I wanted to go for a walk. I've been real lazy and not wanting to do much since we walked SO much in Hawaii. But I've been only having an average of 7000 steps this week and decided to push myself. After... Read more
Roller coaster with emotions the last few days.
Had a good workout yesterday doing a made up circuit/interval routine. Sure gets the heart rate up and is fun because I can do a different routine each time I do it....no boredom. Good aerobic workout and ST all in one. Saves time.
