Warning: Some Frustration Expressed Here

Saturday, August 21, 2010      20 comments

Thanks for all your support regarding my frazzled day. I think I proved to myself once more that letting it (stress) get to me just makes me less efficient and productive, as well as less likely to achieve my eating and activity goals. I'm... Read more

Too Focused and Frazzled

Friday, August 20, 2010      10 comments

Yesterday I had a 7:30am professional breakfast. A protégé of mine won a big award, Workforce Champion of the Year. She really deserves it. I am very proud of her. BUT I burned fewer calories than in any day since I seriously started SparkPeople... Read more

Changing It Up

Tuesday, August 17, 2010      14 comments

I told my hubby I was on the way to the gym, envisioning my usual elliptical or stationery bike workout and then hitting the weight machines. On the way there, I was just not excited about it. The day was so beautiful. The sky so blue. I decided... Read more

My Daughter Said This Would Make A Good Blog

Sunday, August 15, 2010      18 comments

Last weekend I weighed 6 pounds more than my happy weight, did not fit into all my clothes, and felt fat, bloated, and a little bit scared. I cut my calories back, lost water weight, feel good that now I'm less than a pound over, and determine... Read more

Team Walk and Progress

Saturday, August 14, 2010      9 comments

I really enjoyed our Polk County SparkTeam walk this morning at the old Lakeland mall. It was wonderfully air conditioned and very comfortable. I had Natalie in the stroller and out of the stroller. Cyndi, our leader, set a comfortable pac... Read more

Advice for New Members and for Myself, Too

Friday, August 13, 2010      23 comments

I was contacted by a new member (ARIANABLUE) and asked how I lost weight. She liked my response, so I thought I'd share it as part of a blog: ************************ You asked how I lost my weight. I lost 50 with Weight Watchers, eating ... Read more

Thank You, SparkFriends!

Thursday, August 12, 2010      13 comments

Yesterday 22 SparkFriends stopped by with kind words and support. Thank you, thank you. It means so much to me. There is so much wisdom and understanding here! In my real life there are many wonderful people, but not one who understands as well ... Read more

Familiar Awful Feelings

Wednesday, August 11, 2010      23 comments

Saturday morning I woke up and grabbed something to wear out of my closet, not thinking. I could hardly button it and it didn't feel comfortable at all. Old familiar feelings came rushing back to me, as I took it off and looked for something a l... Read more

Getting It Back After Minor Bump in the Road

Monday, August 09, 2010      15 comments

I've been very concerned that going back to work 2 full days a week might trigger eating. I started back on payroll on August 2, 2010. (Before that I was just working one day a week as a consultant plus some grant writing at home.) My first week... Read more

Thanks, TBRANCH, and Thanks to FLUTERBUGCE, TOO

Sunday, August 08, 2010      12 comments

Really enjoyed the Polk County SparkTeam pot luck dinner last evening. It was wonderful to meet AMANDJCD and get to see FLUTTERBUGCE, EILEENV3, and ASMITH (hope I have that screen name right) again. TBRANCH has such a lovely home. She and her hu... Read more

Now I Can Look the Part

Thursday, August 05, 2010      19 comments

Today it came! The FedEx man left me a little white package. Natalie was here and we opened it together. I now have a bright red (size small) SparkPeople shirt. Natalie was very impressed. You may remember I won $10 credit on the wheel the ... Read more

Confident Portions

Tuesday, August 03, 2010      13 comments

Last eve at supper I decided I wanted some of my hubby's mashed potatoes. I served myself what I thought was about a quarter cup. I started to take a bite. Doubt crept in. I got up from the table, got a measuring cup, and put the potatoes in it.... Read more

Enough Already!

Sunday, August 01, 2010      14 comments

I just finished all the laundry, getting every single piece -- even the ironing and hand washing -- finished and put away. As I was reorganizing my closet and throwing out my last clothes that are too big, I realized something: I have enough clo... Read more

My Kind of Triathlon

Saturday, July 31, 2010      9 comments

Today I worked out at my gym. It was 98 degrees outside, so I appreciated the air conditioning. Nonetheless I was totally sweated through way before my 120 minute session was complete. I'm trying to change my thinking from sweating being bad to ... Read more

SparkPeople Video Surprise!

Friday, July 30, 2010      11 comments

The other day I couldn't get to the gym. It was my strength training day and I was scheduled to burn 307 calories. I decided to try some SparkPeople videos. First I did three of the cardio videos -- Jump Start, Bootcamp, and Kickboxing. I... Read more
