Focus on my leg.....
This year has been a series of ups and downs--gee, sounds like real life, huh? lol My leg gets better, then worse, then better, then worse. I'm not really focusing on my weight or nutrition so much right now as I am getting this healed up. Gr... Read more
I Know I Should Be Grateful.......
and I AM. Weigh in today--down to 292.4. WOW. A 0.2 loss. But it's still a loss, right? Right!! and I'm grateful. I haven't walked every single day, but I have been trying to be mindful about what I eat, and walk almost everyday, at least a... Read more
Down from last weigh-in.....
Yay! Down to 292.6 from last week's disaster. Guess the mindful eating and walking has been paying off! WOOT!
My son and V got in last night from AZ--I'm so glad they made it safe! We have a houseful again, but that's ok. And MORE good... Read more
Soooooo, What's Your Passion?
I answered a sparkmail from a friend asking about qiviut--which is muskox undercoat that gets spun into yarn. I could have answered her in a yes or no, but noooooooooo--I went into a huge long dialog. At the end of my response, I re-read it an... Read more
Had to share this....
I went to the dr. today. I actually WENT to the appt. I had set up. lol I hate going to the dr. even though I've been needing to for quite awhile. I have been diagnosed with venous insufficiency in my lower left leg. It was caused from a bro... Read more
295.2. So that is .8 down from last time I weighed and didn't post it because I did it on a different day than I was supposed to because I forgot. ;) I guess this is the first of my baby steps--weighing once a week, and remembering to log my f... Read more
I totally forgot I was supposed to weigh yesterday! Probably because I ended up going to work, and Wed. is usually my day off. So I decided I'm not going to weigh till next Wed. I should be off that day, after having worked 5 days in a row. ... Read more
I never thought I'd be happy to stay the same.....
LOL. I decided Wednesday would be my weigh in, because of scheduling making weekends too hectic. So I weighed this morning, and I am the same weight as I started 2 weeks ago. Which is ok. I'm running alongside the wagon, not quite back on ye... Read more
More NOT to get discouraged about....
Ok. Muscle weighs more than fat. I've been walking more--moving more at work--just generally trying NOT to sit on my butt in front of the computer more than once or twice a day to track food/fitness and catch up on emails, etc. So all that mo... Read more
I Refuse To Get Discouraged.....
So I weighed this morning--I gained .4 of a pound. Not too bad, considering I ate an entire pint of Ben and Jerry's last night. I have been increasing my activity level, also. I know--that is no excuse. I ate it cuz I wanted it and I am an e... Read more
Hey, does that count as cardio???
I guessed on Sunday that I'd gained back up to about 286--well, I missed it by a few pounds. Like six point 2--and NOT in my favor. So I'm back up to almost where I started a year ago. Almost, but not quite. I guess I can hold onto that, any... Read more
Ok. I got bored. Then I gained some weight. Then I got depressed. So I hibernated for the winter. ;)
I'm back. I haven't weighed yet--have to wait till in the morning to weigh. I saw a sparkpeople article in the For Women First mag ... Read more
I've been doing good!!
Official weigh in this week is--the same. No gain, no loss. I've been doing really good this week. I've only gone overcalories maybe once or twice, and not that bad, and I walked 30 minutes four days this week. AND did my strength training e... Read more
Yeah, I like my chicken fried. And everything else, too. I'm from the south, what do you expect? I was just thinking this morning about how AWFUL we used to eat in comparison to now. Fish was fried. So were potatoes, eggs, bacon, chicken, o... Read more
Now I see how I got this big....
Oh boy. I've spent the past two weeks without any red meat or dairy. AND. I. GAINED. A. POUND. AND. A. HALF. You don't even know how bad that sucks. I stayed within my calorie range, and all my other ranges, too,I ate really good, no sweets ... Read more
