Time for a new plan
Tuesday, July 13, 2010      4 comments

So tired of logging food. Therefore, it is time for a change of plan. 1. My evening meal needs to be 500 calories or less. Evening snack: 200 calories or less. I have daytime food under control at this time. It is the evening food t... Read more
Pure and careful thoughts

Since my last blog, I have continued to gain weight. Ugh! I am not walking as much as I would like (knee pain), but am still exercising. With my tax refund, I bought a new hybrid bike. Easier and more enjoyable to ride. And I am storing it ... Read more

When I visited my email, I found so many emails from SparkPeople... I figured something was up. Then I found that I was Motivator of the Day! All those great comments and thumbs up! Wow! I found myself being motivated by you. Thanks! A... Read more
Looking for the Spark again

Hi everyone! My break was nice in that I spent less time online and more time cross-stitching. I made aprons for my nieces. My sister's (their mom) did not get done, so I am still working on it. They turned out really nice, but took a very l... Read more
A SparkBreak is in place

It has been a couple of weeks since I stopped logging my food. No change in my weight. That is good. Unfortunately, there is no change in my evening habits either. I have posted some goals in my "goal" board at home: 1. Regular portions (... Read more
Trying something new
Monday, October 26, 2009      5 comments

I have been logging my food for over three years, either here or on other sites. I know that it helps me to be accountable and see how my nutrition is doing. Lately, however, I have been very busy and finding it challenging to log my food and ... Read more
biking in the snow!
Monday, October 12, 2009      4 comments

I woke up to heavy snow on the ground and chunks of it falling from the sky. My bike derailleur was fixed on Friday, so I was anxious to try it out. Everything seemed fine until I actually started riding. That was when I discovered that I cou... Read more
dusty roads

I had a great weekend. Road trip to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. In past years, our family tries to camp at least 8 to 10 weekends. This year, with a drastic cut in pay, we managed only three weekends. Maybe we will get to do one more t... Read more
Finding the magic again
Monday, August 31, 2009      7 comments

Okay, so it is not magic. And I have not found it. Right now, the scale numbers are getting larger rather than smaller. Disappointing to be sure. I have been thinking about how goal-setting seems to work for me. I had forgotten that a goal ... Read more
racking up fitness minutes
Saturday, August 01, 2009      4 comments

I am loving this summer with biking and walking and strength training. Commuting to work gives me about 75 minutes of biking or 120 minutes of walking. My strength training is at 2-3 times per week. Not doing much with my arms, but working mo... Read more
One focus
Thursday, June 25, 2009      6 comments

It has been a while since I let everyone know how I am doing. I looked at my "new focus" blog and find that I really have not been focusing on my goals. Life has just felt too busy to do anything except the bare minimum to get by. That is... Read more
So busy!

I just want to let folks know that I have not dropped off the end of the earth :-) My new job is keeping me busy. DD3 is graduating from high school this week. Grad party prep and family visiting keeps me going constantly. I have been bi... Read more
new focus
Friday, May 29, 2009      2 comments

Two weeks into a new job; I am feeling a bit more settled and more relaxed than when I was unemployed. Time for reflection and to refocus on goals. Reflection: -- I am doing well with exercise, not so well with strength training. -- I ... Read more
hanging in there
Monday, May 18, 2009      7 comments

I feel disconnected from SparkPeople these days. Job hunting and housework has kept me pretty busy the last few days. Now I have to find some insurance (new job=expensive insurance). I have not been focusing on my specific goals, but I ha... Read more
A new job!
Saturday, May 16, 2009      6 comments

Thanks to everyone for keeping me in their thoughts and prayers. It was a difficult week. Out of routine. Wanting to eat more. Forgetting to eat sometimes. Not eating freggies. Way less exercise. Tears. Depression. You can imagine. And... Read more
