Prom Dress Shopping
Well, I thought my day would be spent splitting wood, but since tomorrow is my oldest DD's 16th birthday, we went to eat and then shopping for prom dresses. (My husband's idea.)
Anyway, here she is!

Oh, How I Love my HRM!
I don't know about everyone else, but 65 minutes of cardio daily can certainly drag on.... I have fine tuned my walking playlist on my iPod so that the tempo of each song corresponds to the tempo of my walking "routine." (That has made a HUGE di... Read more
No More Cooking Down Under!
Well, after months of carrying anything that needed to be baked to the basement, I finally got a new range in my kitchen. I know it was good for me to go up and down the stairs, and if it weren't for my knees, I wouldn't have complained too much... Read more
The house is quiet, and I am at my computer waiting for the ibuprofen to kick in. I made it through the 5 minute warm-up on my treadmill and couldn't take the pain anymore. It's these knees. I have bad ones, or rather two bad ones. I have little... Read more
The Two's Have It!
Today officially marks the 2nd month of Spark People for me, and in that two months, I have lost 22 pounds! I've tried to find that SparkVersary for 2 months, and realized that they give them for 1, 3, 6, and 9 months. I will look forward to tha... Read more
Hard to get back into the routine
I'm finding it hard to get back into the "school" routine after the break. Specifically I don't want to get up at 5 am to walk, but I did it. It is the getting to bed early thing that is hard. Like tonight, we went to oldest DD basketball game a... Read more
My oldest DD has been telling me that I wasn't 5'8" anymore, and so I decided to see just how tall I was. I am just 5' 6.5". That means 12 more pounds to reach just "overweight." What a let down! I was all psyched to reach that "overweight" stat... Read more
Christmas Decorations are Gone!
Well, it took a couple of lazy days, and several trips up the stairs for my oldest DD, but Christmas 2010 is officially behind us! Just a bit more straightening up in the basement, and things will be good.
I had to weigh today, because I kn... Read more
I need some motivation!
My house still looks like Christmas. I haven't begun taking down the decorations or tearing down the tree. Where is my motivation? Tomorrow will be a wash, with nothing done, so I should have gotten something accomplished today. Didn't happen...... Read more
So yesterday I had a big shock. First, I went to stage 3 of the spark diet. I expected that, but what I didn't expect was the dramatic drop in my calorie range! So many times I had to add calories or decrease my cardio because I was burning too ... Read more
1-derland feels Wonderful!
Well, I met my first big goal this morning! It may have been a day late, but we ate at Red Lobster last night while shopping, and I still lost weight! (I had plenty left over for lunch today, as well.)
Heading down to wrap some presents!... Read more
I was excited about today's official weigh-in. I wanted to enter One-derland. I didn't make it... I am not sure why, but this is not the first time I didn't lose weight, and it won't be the last. I will probably weigh in daily until I do see tha... Read more
I had a revelation last night. I keep adding time to my workouts. Five minutes here and there. So I was up to 70 minutes. SparkPeople keeps telling me that once again, I am burning more calories, I need to eat more. SOOOO, I read on a message b... Read more
Starting another week
Well, tomorrow starts another week, and a busy one, at that. I have lots of cleaning to do before the holiday. I will get my cardio time in, and I will log my food, but that may be it.
We cut wood today. DH and DS ran chainsaws, oldest DD a... Read more
Today I decided to add 5 minutes to my treadmill time, and slow it down a bit. My knees have been bothering me a bit, and I don't know if I have been pounding away at them too much. We will see if it makes a difference. At least it is not bad en... Read more
