Jogged around my parents' neighborhood today. 30 minutes of straight jogging (slow), then 22 more minutes of mostly walking with a little jogging thrown in. I stretched when I came back but still my quads feel stiff.
I tried to put a podc... Read more
Making it a Lifestyle
*When I only have 30 minutes for the gym I go anyway, but I increase the intensity.
*At dinner I ask for no rice and no bread, and get something with lots of veggies.
*I drink tea after most meals to help feel full.
*I'm getting pretty use... Read more
EIGHT MINUTE, FIFTY-FOUR SECOND MILE!!!
Not bad, eh? I was panting and beet red, but I did it. Then I ran/walked some more til I'd gone 43 minutes, plus 3 minutes warm up and cool down (not including my walk to/from the gym). Plus, I stretched. Gettin' pretty flexible.

That rhymes. :)
Anyway....I came home from Cancun yesterday and today I am feeling a lack of motivation. Thoughts of food of all kinds are filling my mind and my desire to jet over to the gym doesn't seem to exist.
But there is good n... Read more
Home from Cancun!
Cancun was fantastic!! Warm, sunny, just what I needed. See my photo gallery for pics! I really missed SP but figured it was a good chance for me to learn more about using Weight Watchers in "real life." (yeah - I WISH that's what my real lif... Read more
I had my third WW meeting today...weighed in at 159.2, which is down 2.6 lb from last week (162.8) and a total of 5.6 lb since I started. (I had already lost 5lb on my own the week before, though. Well.....not on my own....it was with sparkpeop... Read more
My BMI is 25.2
A healthy BMI is 24.9 or less....I am SO CLOSE!!! At my highest weight ever, which I think was about 183, I was only 3 pounds away from being obese. Ick, I didn't know that at the time! Right now, I am only 2 pounds away from A HEALTHY WEIGHT... Read more
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
