Too much munching yesterday
So yesterday wasn't the best day in terms of my eating. Only tracked breakfast. I really should go back and track the rest of my food if I remember it. My meals weren't too bad, it was the silly snacking. I kept eating graham crackers and peanut... Read more
Lately I have been wondering why I left Phoenix. Brrrr...it is cold here. It has been mostly in the 20s with threats of snow coming this week. Although today it is supposed to be in the 40s! We had a couple of days like that last week and it f... Read more
Me: 1, Box of Birthday Chocolates: 0
On Sunday my parents gave DH a box of candy as a fun little addition to his birthday present. Guess how many I've had? ZERO! That's right, zilch! This is quite a feat, since the box is on the counter in the kitchen staring me down whenever I am ... Read more
Mental funk...but exercise helped
Hi everyone! I've finally dug myself out of the backlog of e-mails I had from late November. UGH...was that ever a chore! Speaking of chores, feels like that's all that my life is about anymore. When it's not e-mail backlog, it's cleaning, groce... Read more
You know you need to pump some iron when...
... your 17-month-old thinks it's fun to pinch the flab on your arms! Yes, she started doing that yesterday. I'm taking it as a sign that I've got to find a way to fit Body Pump into my schedule again. I love the class because it works all my mu... Read more
I am doing OK calorie-wise today. Tracking my food. But tonight is the first night of Hanukkah and I am planning to eat a jelly donut or two. ... Read more
Missing: motivation. If found, please return to MDTWEETY.
Somewhere along the line in the past few months, I lost my motivation. Not completely, but enough for me to be concerned.
- My workouts have been lackluster.
- I am tracking sporadically.
-I am eyeballing portions rather than measuring eve... Read more
H2O kickboxing and Tai Chi
Last night I went with a friend to her gym and took a fun and new-to-me fitness class - water kickboxing and water Tai Chi. Since it was the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, there were only four of us. Usually the class is a lot busier, she told m... Read more

Happy Monday, SparkPeople!
I hope all of you had a nice weekend! I am planning 2 visits to the gym today. I did not go all weekend, so I want to make up some time. :)
I have no idea how many calories I consumed yesterday. Dinner was aroun... Read more
Why do I get lazy in the afternoon?
I've realized something about myself. I am a morning exerciser and if I miss a morning workout I lose my groove. I tell myself I will work out later, but about 70 percent of the time I don't. I want to figure out why that is and change it.

Quiet morning to myself & felt like blogging...
Happy Halloween everyone!
For the first time in my Halloween life, I will not be giving out candy to the trick-or-treaters. I had intended to buy candy, but last week I was at Kohl's and they had these cute little play-doh packages for Hal... Read more
Haven't blogged in a while
Last week I sort of took another "break" from Spark and exercise. I still logged in and tracked my food somewhat but I didn't blog or spend too much time here, and I only made it to the gym one day. ... Read more
Hurray! We are keeping the gym!
We worked it out to keep our membership by taking advantage of a promotion they were offering that gives us the rest of the year free. That will give us a little wiggle room with our expenses for the next three months. We also found out that we... Read more
Body fat percentage...blah...
The other day, on a whim, I asked one of the personal trainers at my gym to test my body fat percentage. After stepping on the scale (their scale weighed me in 2 pounds higher) I held onto a little device for a few seconds that zaps some sort of... Read more
How to tame a wicked sweet tooth
Well, I don't really have the answer to that. I wish I could find the answer, bottle it up and sell it. :) All I know is that I struggle with it pretty much every day. The craving for something sweet usually strikes mid-afternoon and again in th... Read more
