My Bike Is My Friend

Monday, July 02, 2012      0 comments

Not feeling very motivated to exercise today. But I need money, so I'll ride my bike to the bank a couple of miles away--4 miles round trip. That will be a good cardio. And I've begun to do squats while I brush my teeth. So 5 minutes of squ... Read more

A word about my user name

Sunday, July 01, 2012      2 comments

I'm not bragging. It's more of a challenge to live up to. Lots of people have fish symbols on their cars. But do they drive in a Christian manner? For some putting the fish symbol in the middle of the steering wheel would be more effective.... Read more

Dodged a bullet

Sunday, July 01, 2012      1 comments

The ladies had a pot luck lunch yesterday. Wow. I knew it would be a challenge, but I made pretty good choices. Fortunately there weren't too many gooey desserts, my great downfall. Someone was smart and brought a bowl of small apples--I immedia... Read more

Nearly Sabotaged

Saturday, June 30, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday I went to a friend's house to help her with her computer. She took me to lunch at Mimi's [Uh-oh!] and the waiter placed a menu with the special and a big photo right in front of us as soon as we sat down. [Oh no!] Since I know Judy is ... Read more

Not the day I planned

Thursday, June 28, 2012      1 comments

I had carefully planned out my day, and Thursdays are usually pretty easy days for me. I bike to Bible study, eat no more than 1 [count 'em--one!] cookie, bike home and do some housework. Today I had biked to Sylvia's house and we were chatting ... Read more

The long walk

Wednesday, June 27, 2012      3 comments

Well, not such a long walk, really. Walked for a full 30 minutes this morning [that's a first to do all at once]. Then came home and did strength training [which I've been letting slip a bit since the new fitness format on SP]. Decided to walk d... Read more

5 Days to go on 30 day challenge

Tuesday, June 26, 2012      0 comments

I challenged myself to try this for 30 days and it is a lot easier than I thought it would be. I won't hide that I'm really disappointed about not losing more pounds, but the fact that I have lost anything is a wonder. I need to remind myself th... Read more

The Search for a Scale

Monday, June 25, 2012      2 comments

I don't own a bathroom scale and really don't have room for one in my tiny place. When I started SP I went to a doctor's office where I had been seen and asked the nurse to weigh me, so I know that 238 was my weight after several days on the pro... Read more

3/4s of the way thru 30 day challenge!

Sunday, June 24, 2012      2 comments

This is going pretty good. I can make the first 30 days and keep with SP even longer [hopefully until I reach my goal weight]. After my friend Jeri obsessed over WW and nagged me to join it [I don't do meetings], I don't want to bore my friends ... Read more

Grocery Shopping--A New Experience

Friday, June 22, 2012      2 comments

When I started SP 3 weeks ago I had recently done a major grocery shopping and my house was full of food that I had thought was healthy [in moderation] and a few treats. With SP I soon learned that my 'healthy' diet was packed with fat and not e... Read more

I over ate

Thursday, June 21, 2012      5 comments

Okay, yesterday I was really hungry. I've been exercising a lot and staying on track with food. But after an early supper and all the calories I could afford for the day, I wanted an evening snack. But I did that better than I ever have: on... Read more

A year to a better me

Tuesday, June 19, 2012      2 comments

I know it took a long time to gain this weight and it will take a long time to lose it. But losing weight will help improve my life in a lot of ways: better health, less arthritis pain better fitness, more strength better self-ima... Read more

measuring for success

Sunday, June 17, 2012      4 comments

It's true: fat people can't measure. I have read that overweight people often have trouble estimating sizes of clothing, weights and measurements of food. I had measured my favorite big glass to use for drinking water, then forgot it almost imme... Read more

Eating out with friends

Saturday, June 16, 2012      0 comments

This is the second time that I have eaten out with a group after Hebrew class. Amy suggested it and lots of [people went to a shopping center nearby with an outdoor food court. Five of us went again this week and I still managed to come in under... Read more

30 day challenge: 1/2 way there!

Friday, June 15, 2012      3 comments

I looked up Spark People after I read an article about a guy who lost weight using high-tech apps instead of meetings. I'm not much of a meeting person but I am a techie. Sparks looked like one of the best, but I downloaded 3-4 to check them out... Read more
