My Vision for Cancun
I am leaving for Cancun on Saturday, February 17, which is just four days away, and I'm staying for 5 days. In the past, I have dieted before a vacation and then blew it while on the vacation....and never got back on track. Not this time, beca... Read more
How SP Helped Me Today
I am SO GRATEFUL for the nutrition tracker. I had planned a healthy vegetable soup for dinner, but before I ate it, I entered the ingredients into a new "food grouping" (LOVE that option) and looked at my daily totals. Uh oh - it put me way to... Read more
Yesterday I was at 156.2 (lowest I've been this diet) and today I was at 156.8, but I was actually glad because I thought it would go up more. In terms of logging what I eat, exercising, staying within my ranges...I'm keeping it up, no problem.... Read more
Down 3.2 lb in 1 day?!?!
Yesterday I was at 159.4. Today I was at 156.2. WOW. I am soaring. I know that it's highly likely I'll see a "gain" over the next few days, but it won't be a true gain of fat weight. I'm sure water weight and other things have a huge impact... Read more
9 minutes, 50 seconds
That's how fast I ran a mile today at the gym. Woohoo! AND, it was after 45 minutes on the gauntlet stair climber. It was hard and I was sweating and red, but I did it.
I'm really proud of myself...lately I've eaten well at restaurants, ... Read more
Back down to 159.4 today and feeling good. As much as I tell myself it's really not all about the scale, I can't help but be affected. On a day that I'm up I feel so discouraged, and on a day that I'm down I'm just so happy and want to keep it... Read more
Second WW Meeting
I had my 2nd WW meeting today and was down 2 pounds!!! I went from 164.8 to 162.8. At home this morning I weighed 161.0, so I am consistently weighing just under 2 pounds more at meetings than at home. I had a big healthy dinner of salmon and... Read more
ANOTHER Gain :( :(
Wednesday (today) 162.8
Man, this sucks! I'm staying within my points, if you allow activity & flex points anyway. I am now calculating activity points by calling my workouts "moderate" rather than "high" in... Read more
I went from 159.2 on Monday to 160.8 on Tuesday (today). It was my first gain. Yesterday I was all proud of myself for eating treats in moderation. I had a large chocolate chip cookie, a very small bite of muenster cheese, and two small tacos... Read more
Just wanted to quickly write...
Went downhill skiing yesterday, 4th time ever. 5.5 hours of skiing, quite a lot of exercise! Ate healthy all day, packed food to bring, even had a VERY healthy salad with grilled chicken and no dressing and a ... Read more
My First Week on SparkPeople: The Benefits
Okay, so this isn't really my first week on SP...but it is the first week I've actually taken advantage of all (well, lots - there's too much on here for me to say "all") it has to offer.
Here is a list of the benefits I have been able to enjo... Read more
Things I have Learned Since Starting SP - and, my First WW Meeting
First, things I have learned:
1. It's so much easier to control your calories when you are not starving yourself! It would be so easy to stay within my SP recommended range. I just hope that doesn't have to drop too much as I lose weight...... Read more
I had a workout droop today...when I'm doing cardio and gradually get to a point where I feel like I need to stop and lie down and eat. It started when I had been going about 38 minutes on the elliptical trainer and I made myself go to 45 minut... Read more
I think I have a mild stomach bug. Last night I could barely sleep, but that's typical for Sunday nights even when I'm feeling healthy. I am down to 164 today and have barely eaten all day. I am finding new ways of using my Nutrition Tracker.... Read more
I feel great today! Just wanted to say that I watched the news clip about SP founder Chris Downie and was moved to tears. This man put FIVE MILLION DOLLARS of his own money into this website to inspire people to get healthy and live healthy. ... Read more
