Reflection and Goal for March 3
What's Going Well?
Most things! Still eating healthy for the most part. I'm getting back into the workout gig. Last night, I dragged myself to TKD (dragged because I was exhausted), and over the weekend I managed to do a weightlifting/cardio c... Read more
Reflection and Goal for Feb. 25
What's Going Well?
I feel really good today. Mostly, this is because I've been tracking food, eating GOOD food (meaning healthy), staying full, and avoiding the binges.
I'm not stressed -- and I'm not feeling negative about my body.
I'... Read more
Reflection and Goal for Feb. 23
What Went Well Over the Weekend:
I went to sparring class! I haven't gone in months, and it felt good to put on the gear and again and kick people. :) I also did the regular class, getting an 80-minute workout in on Saturday.
On Friday... Read more
Along with chronic laziness, I was struck by a bout of bronchitis (indeed, nobody got time for dat) and have just floundered for the last two weeks. What happens when one flounders too long? One eventually hits land.
I've decided to name th... Read more
I am channeling the mindset of an Olympic athlete.
I am in training. Food is my fuel. Only healthy, nutritious food can enter my body.
I am in training. My body is a machine. It will become a stronger, faster, more powerful machine eve... Read more
Start Your Engines
Picture an old car in the winter: the engine sputters, dies, sputters again, rolls over, starts...but then stops again. That's me.
But today, the engine started. I joined an old car club with similar vehicles, and we're committed to refi... Read more
Confession: Last night my husband said, tentatively, "Uh...when you get closer to black belt testing, you should probably...not eat chips like that. I mean, like...you should try more fruits and vegetables, you know? For your test?"

Got Booty? This One's For You!
I heard this on the radio this morning -- it's my new anthem! All you ladies out there with junk in the trunk, embrace your curves!

Yeah, it's pretty clear, I ain't no size two
But I ca... Read more
Tomorrow is the Dreaded 4th Day
A co-worker and I just figured out that
1) We are both secret binge-eaters.
2) When we start a plan, we are both really good for the first three days. Then we blow it on Day 4.
Well, tomorrow is my Day 4. I'm gritting my teeth alread... Read more
Back to Solutions
I found myself recommending The Spark Solution to a co-worker, especially since I lost about six pounds in two weeks when I did it.
Then I thought, Hmmm...Perhaps I should be doing this again.
So today was the first day! I've grocery ... Read more
Intervention Day 8: One Step Back
I did okay...until I got home from work at 5:00. Hungry. Facing down a pan full of brownies. Hungry. Italian bread on the counter.
I couldn't stop from eating two helpings of each. Then I gave up and ate half of a Tombstone pizza before I g... Read more
Intervention Day 7
The hump to get over: my weight was up a bit today from yesterday. However, I'm still down 2 pounds from Sept. 1.
3 days in a row of strong workouts
Ordering only coffee at the after-church Dunkin Donuts run.
Taking my ... Read more
I've had to detach myself from...myself.
Sounds weird, doesn't it? Yet I' ve to treat myself like a whiny toddler:
"I want snacks!"
"No. You're not getting any snacks before dinner."
"But I'm hungry!"
"Good. Then you'll ... Read more
Intervention for My Last Few Months
I updated my Spark page. That says it all.
I weigh more today than I have in 4 years.
This is, frankly, inexcusable. There is no excuse. I do not have a medical problem. I am not an overstressed single parent working two jobs. I am no... Read more
I Think I've Got This!
Okay, I was initially going to call today a "fail" for the following reasons:
1. I did not work out this afternoon/evening.
2. I did not use meals from The Spark Solution for lunch or dinner.
So this is why tracking is important. I w... Read more
