Strength, goals and limits
I commute by bicycle to/from work most days, but I don't have strong legs. I have gears, and I know how to use them.
I want to work to make my legs stronger. But I don't want to work so hard that I wreck my legs for the commute. So Mo... Read more
Summer 2015 Commitment
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
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
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
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
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
Goal for week #3
I've lost 3 pounds so far this month since rejoining Sparkpeople. 3 pounds since May 7. Although I would like to lose the weight faster, I'm very happy to have launched a general downward trend (GDT).
I'm thinking a lot about goals. My ... Read more
Trying to get back in the swing of things
What I've done right in my first week back at SparkPeople:
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
I have been away from SparkPeople for almost 2 years, and I regained all the weight that I previously lost. I've done that twice now. So what have I learned from this? I have learned that I can be really disciplined and consistent, and that I... Read more
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

I haven't done a blog for a while, but I've been doing fairly well on my goals for 2013 in the month of March.
1. Tracking food: I have been doing that every day consistently. I am not always within my calorie range, but certainly most d... Read more
