Back after a really big week
Didn't get much Sparking or official exercising done last week, and ate on the run most days, but it was a really good week.
We were in dress rehearsal for our concert every evening, then the concert was on Thursday evening. We sang someth... Read more
So how do I track THIS?
Knew I wasn't going to get to the gym today (meeting someone for dinner at 5:00, then dress rehearsal until 9:30). We just started a new challenge at work, all of us divided into Teams, with the winning Team to be whichever one has lost the mos... Read more
My Skinny Pants
How ironic. There is an article here today about why we should get rid of our skinny pants. A week or so ago, I pulled out some clothes that didn't fit last summer, and have been wearing some of them. Today, I put on a pair of slacks that wer... Read more
Recognition from a stranger
Took a lot of talking to get myself up and out for my run/walk today. Then I found that my back and hips were unhappy with me (a lot of lifting on Saturday), and I could not run as far as I have been at a stretch. I decided to do what I could,... Read more
I was discouraged and disappointed this morning to climb on the scale and find that it read a little higher this week than last week. I have been so proud of myself this last couple of weeks, and it was frustrating to not find that effort refle... Read more
Life is what happens while I am making plans
I knew I was going to eat out Wednesday night, and I did go to the local vegetarian place. Excellent food, have no idea how to track it, but Oh, well... Reasonably priced as well, so I didn't feel badly about spending money on a restaurant. W... Read more
eating out tonight, exercising late
This is going to be my night to eat out this week, mostly because there isn't time to get home between work and when I have to be back in town at 6PM--at least, there is, but not enough time to eat or do anything else when I get there except tur... Read more
Think I've found the key to One-derland again.
This morning when I weighed (not official, just curiosity), I was hovering at just under 201, Maybe that is why it was easier for me to stick to the program today. I ate well, with LOTS of vegies (7 servings!! Not counting the fruits!!), didn... Read more
I will not poop out, I will not poop out, I will not poop out...
Did OK with the not spending extra money on extra food, and on getting all my vegies in, but came really close to not doing the 30 minutes of exercise I promised myself I would do every day this week.
I got home, and was hungry, and knew ... Read more
OK, I know I already blogged once today, but...
OK, I know I already blogged once today, but I have to brag.
My goals for the weeks stand at:
1. Did "eat out" at lunch--fundraiser brunch for our youth group at church. It's a tradition. Going to count it as a donation rather... Read more
Don't know whether I'm happy with myself or not.
Got up at 6 AM this morning, and decided that since I did literally nothing yesterday (never did get myself off the couch to exercise), I should go for my run/walk this morning, before I got lazy or distracted. I also decided I wasn't hungry ye... Read more
Good news, I think
Construction guy was here. He says there is no leak between the outdoor faucet and the meter down by the road, and showed me how he knows. He thinks I may have not gotten the faucet turned off tightly, and that is what caused all the water on ... Read more
Life is what happens...
Keeping on track with my Not Spending Extra Money and Calories challenge, but I am not going to get a chance to do my semi-run today after all. Went out to water my garden bright and early this morning, only to realize that the entire side yard... Read more
I'm not eating what I'm not spending.
I have to admit that most of the challenges I have tried so far don't really do it for me. They sound good, but don't usually end up really getting at what I need.
I am doing the Sweet Tooth challenge right now, and heaven knows I need it,... Read more
Running down the road to fitness
Went for my run/walk again today. Still concentrating on keeping my head up and shoulders back. I find that I can run quite a way down hill, not v ery far on the flat...and I'm still leery of trying to actually run up hill. There are two down... Read more
