I have now lost EIGHT pounds in two days of being hardcore. But of course I probably put the extra weight on about that fast about a roller coaster. I have just started reading _Health at Every Size_ which so far is about the se... Read more

Three weeks to go! This morning I was down about four pounds after just one day of being on track hard core. A little momentum is going a long way. I spent a while yesterday looking at pictures of Puerto Plata, which is where we're going on v... Read more

First of all let me get the defensive stuff out of the way. What I wrote yesterday was like daydreaming...I wasn't listing goals as much as fantasizing. Do you know the quote, "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars... Read more
What would the IDEAL me do?

I'm a work in progress. Sometimes it feels like I've taken two steps forward, seventeen thousand steps back. But what would perfection even look like, for me? What would be my best? What would that look like? Here are some ideas: *My w... Read more
So Grateful for my Spark Friends

TOM was LAST week, so why am I so emotional right now? I am so overwhelmingly touched by all the comments left on yesterday's blog entry. It seems like you ladies understand me better than my real life friends. What Liltrouble said hit the na... Read more

Is this the longest break from blogging I've ever taken? Where do I start?? I guess I will fess up and start with where I left off - last Tuesday. Warning - this is going to get ugly. Tuesday through Friday of this past week were HOR... Read more

Hmm. Don't look at Lindt chocolates that you can't eat, and then read a NYT article about food online, if you don't want to get really hungry. Annoyed but not discouraged by my weight. I was 142 today, which means my weight has eased up tw... Read more

I've had a very uneventful weekend, and I don't mind one bit! My weight had been holding steady at 141.4 for a few days, but today went up to 141.8. I'm not discouraged. I know I am doing healthy things for my body no matter what the scale sa... Read more
Oddly Enough, I Don't Have Much to Blog About
Friday, January 09, 2009      7 comments

No news is good news? Usually when I'm doing well I feel like writing about it, but for the past few days I've just been humming along just fine without many big insights to share. Eating's been going fine. I'm sticking to the plan with t... Read more

I have two types of adjustments I need to write about. The first is about my body adjusting. A few wise Sparkers commented on my blog yesterday that perhaps I confused my body with the drastic eating changes over the holidays and that could be... Read more

Man, I made myself a lot of rules the other day! I don't really need the exercise ones. I am an exerciser. A few thoughts on the topic of exercise: *Anyone else notice how much more crowded the gym was on Jan. 1 than on Dec. 31? Yeah, I we... Read more
Me...2009 Style

Before I write about who I am going to be in 2009, I am going to share a little story about who I will be leaving behind. Yesterday was ALMOST a very successful day. I was at the gym all morning, full of energy, and had a fantastic workout... Read more
Cabbage Casserole

I think there was a cabbage casserole recipe featured on SparkPeople the other day...but on Spark Recipes there are several versions. I have made this in the crockpot and also in the oven...I think I like the oven version better. First, if... Read more
It's time to become who I want to be in 2009

Here it comes...the self-reflecting, goal setting blog entry that is almost obligatory for the start of a new year. It is rather appropriate that I am doing this today rather than New Year's Day, because school starts back tomorrow and THAT's w... Read more

Since a couple people asked, I am going to attempt to explain the difference between the lunges you do in Body Pump and the lunges I do when I'm strength training on my own. Body Pump lunges are static least I hope I am using th... Read more
