I've been a b-a-a-a-a-a-d girl today
I almost didn't track it, and I almost didn't blog. Remember how happy I was with myself yesterday for tracking before I ate, and then not eating the Girl Scout cookies? I'm not so proud today.
It's my own fault. I didn't eat enough br... Read more
Sure am glad I tracked before I ate
Long day today. It started at 6AM, and I finally got home at about 8:30 PM. I knew that some of what I had eaten wasn't the best, but was telling myself that really, I was low on calories for the day and could have another Girl Scout cookie. ... Read more
In Spite of It All
I did it. In spite of a totally crappy day, I ate right, exercised, and tracked everything.
I found out today that my job is likely to be cut by 20% come summer and the new budget. The same thing is apparently happening to a lot of peop... Read more
But it tastes so good!!
I came home sick today (mostly, I have to admit, sick of work, since my cold is noticably better), and have spent the afternoon wanting to eat something--anything. In fact, I signed onto SparkPeople a couple hours ago, thinking that I can't eas... Read more
Inspired by my SparkPeeps again
What would I do without my SparkPeeps to keep me up to speed? This time it is two women who I had never met before. They gave me a much needed kick in the butt.
The first was Crissa1669, and her blog about what to do about the blahs--wh... Read more
Affirmation III: I can't believe I was able to do that.
I am so tired I can't see straight.
Have you ever wondered what is involved in getting all those Girl Scout cookies distributed to everyone in the country?
My daughter has been "cookie chair" in our mid-sized college town for somethi... Read more
Affirmation at the gym II: Is this really me?
I feel amazingly good right now. That may not be true tomorrow morning, when I expect to be stiff and sore, but for right now I am totally revved.
The challenge started at my gym last week, and today I met with the personal trainer for t... Read more
Affirmation at the gym
OK, really, the reason I'm blogging is to brag. Got to the gym today, and all the treadmills were full, so I decided to try the elliptical trainer. My knees actually let me do it, but OMG is that a workout all by itself. 15 minutes was all I ... Read more
What am I scared of?
Long time no blog, and there is a reason for that. I've gotten down ALMOST to 200 pounds, and as I have so many times in the past when I reach this point, I am sabotaging myself. Oh, I signed up for a challenge at my gym (and need to call them... Read more
Signed up for a 90 day challenge--OMG!!
While I was stretching out after doing an hour on the treadmill tonight, and before doing some strength training (yep, you're right--I'm bragging), I noticed a Notice taped to the wall. My gym is offering a 90 day challenge, complete with a bod... Read more
Off to a good start
OK, last month could have been better. I'm not in One-derland yet, and in fact gained a little this last week, BUT:
I weigh about a pound less than I did on Dec. 1, which, given the temptations and disruptions of the season is nothing to t... Read more
Sure am glad I joined that gym
I would never have gotten it done today without that gym I joined a few months ago. The day was long and frustrating, the weather wasn't bad, but it was getting dark by the time I was out of work and ready to go, and, to be real about it, I was... Read more
Proud of myself for being back on track.
Did well all day today, in spite of the dreaded Holiday Potluck and Ornament Exchange at work. I took a veggie tray, and someone else brought a fresh fruit salad, so I loaded up on those, and had a few of the little meatball and weiner thingies... Read more
I can still do this.
OK, I promised myself that I would be in One-derland by Jan. 1. Then I got side-tracked and have NOT been doing what I need to most of the time for the last two weeks. Oh, woe is me. Instead of needing to lose three pounds in a month, I now n... Read more
Need to open my eyes again.
This was an absolutely horrible weekend. Helped with a friend's memorial service, and while I was there was asked to help with "heavy housework" for another member of the church. When I got there, I found three other people who were trying to ... Read more
