I started out with a commitment to exercise at least 60 min/day, and of that at least 10 min/day would be strength training. I am happy to report that for most days, I'm doing well over 120 minutes a day of exercise. Since most of my cardi... Read more

Feeling my goal weight body trying to come out

Monday, June 29, 2015      6 comments

I've been working hard on my food plan and exercise plan, and I feel it paying off. It's not that I've lost so much weight, but I really feel my body wanting to firm up and get back to goal weight. It's like I'm ready to unzip my fat suit and ... Read more

Last Day of my long weekend

Sunday, June 21, 2015      7 comments

It's raining. We need the rain, but for me rain is something of a setback because it means that I can't do outdoor activities. It's very hard to get my sweetie off his butt and doing something, so the rain will mean that we basically do nothin... Read more

Results are slow

The scale finally showed a loss of 1 pound this morning. I won't post it "officially" on SparkPeople until I see that same loss for 3 days in a row. I've been working really hard on my program, tracking all my food, eating more vegetables... Read more

A little bit of gardening

Saturday, June 06, 2015      0 comments

I am not a gardener by nature. I mow the lawn because I must (homeowners association rules). Today I decided to plant some wildflower seeds; this is my first real attempt at growing something. It's June 6 and I know it's a little late in the ... Read more

Eat more Protien

Saturday, May 30, 2015      2 comments

I wanted to set a new goal each week, but I'm stuck on my goal of eating 5 servings of vegetables each day. There are days when I easily make my 5 servings, and then there are other days when I only may get one or two servings. My plans always... Read more

Trying to get back in the swing of things

Saturday, May 16, 2015      3 comments

What I've done right in my first week back at SparkPeople: EXERCISE I've taken a walk every day, and I've hit my 10,000 step goal every day. I'm commuting to work on the bicycle, so I'm getting about 60 minutes of cardio via the bike ride.... Read more

Starting again

Staying Motivated

Tuesday, April 09, 2013      4 comments

Currently I am having no trouble whatsoever to stay motivated. But that was not the case last year. I keep wondering "What the heck was I thinking?" when I let myself regain some weight and was ignoring all my healthy eating habits. I know I ... Read more
