I like my scale better....

Saturday, August 08, 2009      4 comments

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

Sunday, August 02, 2009      6 comments

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

Sunday, July 12, 2009      3 comments

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...

Saturday, June 20, 2009      1 comments

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!

Wednesday, May 13, 2009      5 comments

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

Making myself a little privacy!

Saturday, May 09, 2009      3 comments

Next week we are moving my son's bedroom set down to his college town. (Along with his guitar stuff, his TV stand, miscellaneous guy stuff, etc.) For his first two years of college he lived in the furnished dorm and came home for the summers. ... Read more
