Resigned to fall
Where I live, fall is definitely in the air even though the tomatoes aren't ripe yet and I need at least another month of heat if my fantasies of home grown corn were to come true. But, today I was sort of resigned to it. There are lots of th... Read more
Eating to be nice
Although I have not yet managed to squeeze back in to the healthy range for my BMI, I am pretty close and interestingly that makes me one of the thinner people around where I live.
The other night some really nice friends of ours had us ove... Read more
tracking and ice cream
Too funny - after a couple months hiatus, I'm back to tracking, and once again, I'm blown away by how useful it is. That's why it made me laugh to realize my last blog entry was also about tracking. Oh well, I guess I'm a big fan of tracking.

tracking and soup
Tracking is so awsome! Every time I do it for a day it helps me so much, even when I go over my calories. This is my third day tracking and I'm over, within, over, but today the thing that pushed me over was a single scoop of chocolate chip co... Read more
Great morning this morning. Went for a very small jog. Small because am training my dog not to pull on leash and he can only handle so much. Beautiful morning for jogging though, and I feel good because all the time I was feeling guilty for n... Read more
Not really Sparking
For me following SP is tracking my food and exercising and doing weight training. So in that sense I haven't been sparking for a while.
I'm trying to quit playing computer games though. In fact, I have quit playing computer games, and if ... Read more
Sparkpeople's three great gifts to me
Well, I'm back after a bit of a hiatus. I'm not going to get much sympathy but my hubby and I have been worn out from too many vacations. We just got back from Vancouver where we saw some of the Olympics but mostly enjoyed the city and its won... Read more
December 27th measurements
Well, having today as my measurement day didn't spur me on to exercising greatness. Most of my measurements were around the same, waist went up, hips went down, which makes me think it has something to do with the measuring tape.
Crunches ... Read more
Better is pretty damn good
When I started SP I started tracking my food, I learned a ton about what I was eating and my husband and I both lost weight without suffering or deprivation. Over the last month I haven't been tracking as much, I haven't been weight training re... Read more
So many excuses
I'm pigging out during the holiday season, and I don't think it's just because I'm being faced with temptation. I think the biggest reason is that my husband and I aren't on track for home cooking.
We took an awesome trip to China at the b... Read more
December 27th it is.
I'm going to re-measure everything December 27th. That will give me a month to do my strength training so I can do lots of push ups.... Read more
Off the wagon, but waiting for the next one
I didn't end up tracking this week, and I'm quite sure I ended up overeating. I also haven't started exercising again yet.
Two nights ago I was going to eat some chocolate even though I didn't really want any. Usually when I eat somethi... Read more
Well, after about a month off SP, I'm ready to get back on track and I don't think too much damage has been done. We went to China which was fabulous, and totally pigged out but I think that was okay because there aren't a lot of desserts there... Read more
I'm going to go back up!
I don't have a scale, so I don't really know how much weight I've lost, but I fit into clothes that I haven't fit into for a while so I'm definitely losing inches.
The problem is, I'm suffering a case of the Octobers. Work is stressful, th... Read more

My trailer trash shorts!
I have this pair of cut off jean shorts that I have worn every Canada Day in my hometown that I can remember. I'm not sure exactly how long I've had them, but at least 10 years and probably more like 15.
Today my husband made a ridiculous... Read more
