JUST DO IT - BUT HOW?

Wednesday, October 26, 2011      3 comments

My daily email from Messies Anonymous is one of my prime motivators. Today's message is so apt for both my ongoing project of simplifying and organizing my home as well as for my SparkPeople goals, so I'd like to share it with you. NEW MES... Read more

I'M STUFFED!

Saturday, October 22, 2011      5 comments

This site is truly amazing. The thing I'm noticing most at just over two months and 15 lbs down is how full and satisfied I am within my 1300-1600 calorie range. I'd never have believed that I could eat so well, so much less in some ways and m... Read more

WHAT DOES YOUR HEART SAY?

Thursday, October 20, 2011      5 comments

After two days, I gave notice at my new job and feel very good about having done so. I was concerned from the first about air quality--lots of dust, probable mold. Asthma runs in my family, and I already have airborne allergies. On the ... Read more

Great report at dr visit!

Wednesday, October 19, 2011      3 comments

:-) I actually looked forward to today's checkup. I printed up a few of my SparkPeople trackers to share with my doctor to show her what I've been doing that accounts for the 15 lbs I've lost so far. Of course, it didn't look that way on her ... Read more

NEW JOB - NOW WHAT?

Monday, October 17, 2011      2 comments

WHOOHOO! After being out of work for 18 months, I have a job, starting tomorrow! It sounds like just what I need, number of hours, similar work, etc, but I'm out of practice! This will mean a whole new routine, including packing lunches. I n... Read more

EXERCISE RESISTER SNEAKS IN SOME FITNESS!

Thursday, October 13, 2011      4 comments

Count me in among the Exercise Resisters. I'm sure there are plenty of us out there. I'd rather read a book anytime. But...SIGH...that won't help me reach my goals, and somehow, I just don't think "3o min - read book" is going to cut it on my... Read more

WHAT'S WITH THE YARDWORK???

Wednesday, October 12, 2011      3 comments

Heavy yardwork is figuring large in my fitness tracking. So what's with the yardwork? My husband works long hours and simply hasn't enough time to keep up with it, even though he's a passionate gardener, and I'M NOT. The gardening genes misse... Read more

HUNGRY AS A BEAR!

Monday, October 10, 2011      6 comments

I AM HUNGRY! Since starting 55 days ago, this is the most tempted I've been to head for the pantry and eat ANYTHING. So what am I doing instead? 1. I'm noticing with surprise that I AM doing something instead. I'm not in the kitchen, ... Read more

Reading scale for fun! Wow!

Friday, October 07, 2011      3 comments

Well! That's a first. I was so excited about my scale numbers that I did it again this morning just for the pleasure of seeing what it said! I have NEVER EVER viewed that thing as entertainment before. I can hardly wait for the next lb when ... Read more

planning ahead

Thursday, October 06, 2011      0 comments

Having bloodwork done today, fasting, so I know I'll be really hungry. I'm taking nuts and a banana with me so I won't be tempted to have a high cal breakfast out. Got to think around the compulsive creature within. At first I thought I'd go ... Read more

My recipe

Tuesday, October 04, 2011      1 comments

Whew! I just spent a good while figuring out how to calculate the nutrition info on my dinner and how to enter it as a recipe to save. I did it! My recipe is my own creamy leek soup without potatoes. No, I don't have an aversion to potatoes;... Read more

new thinking

Monday, October 03, 2011      0 comments

Yesterday, I went to two events where food was served. I made good choices, had moderate portions, substituted fruit for a dessert, chose to eat dessert at the second event, went over my calorie range. BUT - the good news is: I did not eat co... Read more

energy

Thursday, September 29, 2011      1 comments

I raised my daily calorie count slightly to take my vitamins & supplements into account. I'm wondering if I'm not getting enough of something; my energy level hasn't been as good as I'd like. I'll try the few extra calories this week and see h... Read more

I am worth it!

Sunday, September 25, 2011      0 comments

I just won 500 SparkPoints! And what is my reaction? "I don't deserve this." I had been out for dinner, made much better choices than I would have if I were not on SparkPeople, though my calorie count was higher than usual. I needed this per... Read more
