Ah, the blame game

Tuesday, March 25, 2014      1 comments which I blame everything else for my troubles. I stepped on the scale this morning and then informed my husband it was mean to me. Yeah, probably not. It's just a scale. It reports the facts, ma'am. I blame work stress, bu... Read more

The scale said unhappy things to me this morning. I reminded myself that I am sick, I stayed up too late, and I didn't sleep well. However, the waist measuring tape said "good job! Another half an inch gone!" Also, my skin says "H... Read more

I was significantly more successful last night. Less mindless eating and better choices. My evening snack was a serving of almonds. Still pretty high calorie but definitely a better nutritional punch than the candy from the night before. ... Read more

Okay, back from vacation. It was a great vacation. I didn't watch what I ate, but I ate only stuff that tasted good. We walked everywhere all day every day. I hit up the gym 3 or 4 times while we were on the ship and the other days, I counte... Read more

I have successfully completed my first week of tracking, tracking, tracking, regardless of whether it was good or bad. And it was some of both. Tracking certainly helps give me pause, when I reach for that... thing. Like, Monday. I've go... Read more

A not-so-fond farewell to 2012 and open arms to 2013.

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      2 comments

2012 was challenging. It started challenging. It ended challenging. But 2013 is here. I'm not going to make excuses for anything in 2012, because I am taking the opportunity to start over and start fresh. I have joined the SP Januar... Read more

Rock bottom and yet drilling for lower

Saturday, July 07, 2012      4 comments

I feel like I refuse to get my feet underneath me and get my diet under control. I feel like the 100 degree temperatures are working against me, though. A few days at the in-laws, where the temps never dipped below 90, and with no workout ... Read more

With a week that starts with me actually curled up on the floor in my office, sobbing, is it any wonder that I didn't do a thing with SparkPeople this week? I also gave up eating normal meals. I did not give up eating, sadly, but today was... Read more

I just bit my tongue

Monday, April 16, 2012      0 comments

I've noticed that I'm doing that more - chewing my tongue or the inside of my mouth. And just today, I paid attention to why. I'm eating too fast. I'm eating out of stress, out of sadness, out of frustration, and out of a sense to control... Read more

Vacation was AWESOME. It was warm and sunny and restful. I ate lots of different tasty foods. I started training for a 5k. Did you ever think about how silly a sentence like that is? "I went to the Caribbean in January and decided it wa... Read more

Bi-annual dental cleaning tonight. It's been a pretty good run, recently. Few cavities. Had a root canal a couple years ago, but that wasn't unexpected. I think we can trace my joining SparkPeople back to the time when the cavities slowe... Read more

The scale today said that I've gained .4lbs since before Christmas. Not a success but not a bad thing. I feel so much better - that I'm starting to get the idea of weight loss/portion control/choice management back under control. Don't ge... Read more

Still stepping

Down .4lbs from last week! HUZZAH! SUCCESS! Keep doing it! Of course, yesterday was the holiday lunch and I suspect it ended up as an unmitagated disaster BUT... I ate a healthy lunch. I had a careful morning snack (a small apple). I dran... Read more

I have decided to reward myself with a dollar a day towards a knitting or cross-stitch pattern, to be tallied at the end of the month, based on the success of the month. And weekends are still a problem, but I will get there. Oh yes. I wi... Read more

Sorry, Partha, but if you keep reading, you're going to get way too much information at some point about me and my health. :) So over the weekend, I updated my status to the fact that I was feeling fat and lazy and so on and so forth. I've... Read more
