After yesterday's cleaning, I had an hour's workout. And today I am paying for my enthusiasm in a rather unhappy back. Alas, it's a day of rest for me.... Read more

I can't argue with Myself!

Friday, February 24, 2012      3 comments

I tried. I told Myself I was really too tired, and my back was threatening wonkiness. I told Myself that tomorrow is a Saturday and there's lots of time for working out. I told Myself that I really didn't have time. Myself ke... Read more

Day One of Organization

Friday, February 24, 2012      3 comments

I've read several books on getting your house cleaned and organized. They universally suggest focusing on one room at a time, and for just a small part of the day. Naturally, I attacked the living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, AND m... Read more

10-day shakeup

Friday, February 24, 2012      11 comments

Hubby is leaving this morning for 10 days out of town, so I have the house all to myself. I am planning to use this time well! Every once in a while, moderation requires a bit of a shakeup, so there is going to be a combination of 10 days of hou... Read more

Those cute little girls are dangerous!

Thursday, February 23, 2012      6 comments

They got me in the grocery store: Girl Scouts. Those hopeful, smiling faces. How could I resist? I limited myself to two boxes: one Samoas and one Tagalongs. I brought them home yesterday. There are only five Samoas left today. But *I*... Read more

Paean to a Pair of Shades

Wednesday, February 22, 2012      5 comments

I wore the same sunglasses for 26 years. Not the same kind of sunglasses. The same sunglasses. And this was not a pair that lived in the car and were only worn while driving. I wore these glasses camping, kayaking, biking and skiing. T... Read more

Filled with pride and excitement!

Monday, February 20, 2012      12 comments

This has nothing to do with weight loss or working out, but I'm thrilled to bits to announce that my husband has been nominated for a Nebula award! For those of you who don't know, it's the science fiction writer's equivalent of The Oscars. He's... Read more

Gotta get off the computer

Sunday, February 19, 2012      7 comments

I love Spark, but it's making my computer dependence an even bigger problem. I can spend the whole day answering email and team messages. So tomorrow I have to start controlling and limiting my computer time. Life is passing me by while I'm sitt... Read more

Today's exercise: figuring out when to keep my mouth shut

Friday, February 17, 2012      10 comments

On a regular basis, I read about member here on Spark people doing things that are unwise: exercising is a way that may not be safe; eating in a way that isn't very healthy. And I have to debate each time whether to speak up and give my advice o... Read more

February is cordially invited to LEAVE

Thursday, February 16, 2012      7 comments

The continually-sick thing is getting old, old, old. I'd be worried if it weren't for the fact that hubby has it, too. We are just useless, though. I haven't gotten any work done for most of the month. My brain is just not functional. And every ... Read more

Brand new day

Wednesday, February 15, 2012      4 comments

Up on time, slept well, now let's see if I can actually manage a moderate workout instead of killing myself with my own enthusiasm again!! I do have a hard time with coming back slow--I am not patient with myself.... Read more

I think I overdid it yesterday. Couldn't get out of bed until almost 11. Ugh.... Read more

Back from the dead

Monday, February 13, 2012      8 comments

I still want to sleep a dozen hours a night, but I'm feeling well enough for a mild workout today. Have to remind myself not to overdo things starting out. It's easy to get over-ethusiastic!... Read more

I just finished doing a 6 week challenges on one of my Spark teams, and I did lose a decent amount of weight--tomorrow is the official weigh-in day, but I stepped on the scale today and I'm down 17 pounds since the beginning of the challenge. Wh... Read more

Sick, yet successful

Saturday, February 11, 2012      5 comments

I've been too sick to do much of anything the last week, but I haven't used it as an excuse to eat bad food, and I feel pleased that I haven't fallen into my usual pattern of treating sick time as somehow excused. Because it's dejecting to get t... Read more
