Back on Track
After being sick last week, I feel ever so much better. This also means that I'm eating and exercising on a more regular schedule. So many things can set us back, but when something does, I try really hard to just jump back on the healthy living... Read more
My son's birthday party Sat. night and last night's salad buffet at Bible study offered too many opportunities. I didn't do well Sat., but last night wasn't terrible. I need more help in managing the eating out.... Read more
Two Steps Forward, One Step Back
It's a funny journey I'm on. It seem to go forward, then back. I was at a 20-pound loss the other day, but am now at 19. This means I'm two pounds over what SP has me at for today. I didn't exercise yesterday because of overwhelming fatigue. I t... Read more
Getting Back to Normal

Ways to Measure Success
For me, after losing 13 or so pounds, my clothes are fitting better. I am down one size. I do have more energy. I have actually lost my craving for chocolate and sweets, although I admit I don't mind a treat once in a while. The good thing is th... Read more
Getting Back into Routine
Although I'm still coughing a little, I'm staying out of crowds (our grandchildren's floor hockey and indoor soccer games), but I do feel better. I just think that I might not be doing myself any favors by being around a lot of people....not qui... Read more
Goodbye, Flu, I Won't Miss You
I think it's gone. Oh, I'm still coughing a little. But the big news is that I exercised for the first time in nearly two weeks, and it felt good. I only did ten minutes, but I did both strength and cardio. I will get back into my routine. I am ... Read more
Hoping the Flu is Ending
Although I'm still coughing quite a bit, I don't feel quite as sick as I have for the past week. I'm thinking of doing a little exercise, yet at the same time I'm kind of afraid to. I don't know if my body is up to it.
It's been a tough go,... Read more
I've had the flu since Saturday night. We had taken our grandchildren to a basketball game, and it started with a stiff neck. I thought nothing of it. Later that night I had shaking chills and could not -- could NOT -- get warm. Sunday it was fu... Read more
Monday I did an online SP abs video and yesterday was sore in my upper legs in front and lower stomach (figure I must have done something right). I think I'm not quite ready for that sort of thing. So I skipped exercising yesterday since it was ... Read more
I Love SP
Tracking food and exercise is so important and it keeps me honest. I measure everything so as not to be tricked into thinking my portions are accurate. I prob would be way off if I tried to eyeball portions.
I'm down 8.2 pounds in five week... Read more
Today I am back at my pre-Superbowl weight. I couldn't be happier. I had a Subway 6" veggie delight sandwich for supper, and it didn't put me over.
What suggestions might you have for me? I came in low in carbs. I thought too many carbs in ... Read more
Oh, That Superbowl Party!
Well, yeah, I ate. I'm 1.8 up this morning. But I won't despair because I know a lot of it is water weight due to salt. I had a good healthy breakfast, am planning a good lunch soon, and am back on track. I admit that what I ate tasted good, but... Read more
