It's all relative....
Saturday, August 15, 2009      0 comments

I lost two pounds this week. Yea for me! Of course, I still have far to go....I am still up over 200 and that makes me sad--but even so, I'm walking with more confidence now--I feel lighter, so whether or not it's obvious to anyone else,... Read more
I like my scale better....

This was a good week for me. I was able to FINALLY see the ticker move, a big achievement because I'd been on a 2-month plateau going into August. Truth be told, I wasn't exactly trying before, but now I feel good that a little effort has paid... Read more

August will be MY month

I have been plateauing for way too long. It's entirely my own fault, of course. I am just extremely thankful that I haven't gained any weight, because I sure haven't been trying not to! I've let myself get wrapped up in family stuff, so... Read more
Big changes brewing in our household

I haven't been very active on SP for the past couple of weeks--I have had a lot on my mind and haven't taken the time to eat properly, log my food, check in on my buddies, etc. I have been on an emotional roller coaster--from worry, to pride, t... Read more
Wasting my Saturday away
Saturday, June 27, 2009      1 comments

We have casual Fridays where I work, so a week ago I put on my famous incentive jeans and they felt comfy enough to wear to work! I was so excited! I wore them again yesterday, so I'm giving myself a pat on the back--I made one of my goals! O... Read more
The Mexican restaurant did me in last night...

The scale shows a one pound weight gain this morning, but I'm not going to record it. I am pretty sure it's just a result of over-eating last night, and that I'll level back off within a couple of days. Last night we went to my daughter's danc... Read more
New Week....New Spark Year!
Sunday, June 14, 2009      2 comments

Last week I had my one-year Sparkiversary. A whole year--wow! Today I start the first full week of the new Spark Year. Is it time for some new resolutions? Nah......I don't think I have any NEW ones. I'll work on the same old ones, bu... Read more
Thank Goodness this week is over!

It's been another rough - very stressful - week at work. It affects the other aspects of my life as well, including my weight loss and fitness goals. Here's a synopsis of my usual eating patterns: -Get to work by 8am -Bowl of oatmeal at 9a... Read more
Exercise saved me this week
Saturday, June 06, 2009      3 comments

Weigh-in day today.....and I'm down another pound. Not that I'm complaining...any time the ticker is moving in the right direction is great in my book. But I will say that it's only by the grace of my exercise routine. I ate a lot of no-no fo... Read more
I saw a pear today
Saturday, May 30, 2009      2 comments

I stood naked in my bathroom this morning, getting ready to do my final bootcamp weigh-in, and I had my contacts in, which is unusual for first thing in the morning. I usually shower first, then put in the contacts. Interesting view of the ins... Read more
So I, ah......overdid it a bit today.....
Friday, May 22, 2009      1 comments

I had a bad food day. I've been doing so well, but for some reason today, I really blew it. (by, [gulp!] almost double what I was supposed to eat....) I hope tomorrow's weigh-in is forgiving, because I had a 1-2 pound loss to record for ... Read more
Am I the Only One?
Thursday, May 21, 2009      2 comments

Am I the only one who doesn't just love the new look of the Spark Pages? I know I sometimes drag my feet when presented with a change, rather than embracing that change with open arms.....however, I also sometimes subscribe to the "if it ain't ... Read more
Mutiny of the knees
Saturday, May 16, 2009      3 comments

My left knee has been bothering me for most of the week. At first I thought it might be due to some of the new exercises I was doing for boot bamp, but I'm not so sure any more. It could also be a combination of my age and the extra 50+ pounds... Read more
I love my resistance band!

I had a bit of a cheat day yesterday. I skipped bootcamp. My knee was sore to the point of actually aching while I was just sitting, so I didn't want to do anything to make it worse. Because of that, I didn't do any cardio. (But I did do som... Read more
