Lifestyle I Can Feel Good About

Saturday, September 04, 2010      11 comments

I feel really hopeful that I am on the brink of making the changes I need to feel good about my lifestyle and habits as well as my weight loss! The WAYMO challenge came just at the right time for me, and I am doing it!!... Read more

Trophy Junkie

Friday, September 03, 2010      13 comments

I just got my rewards from SparkPeople for August. I racked up 5 trophies: perfect attendance, SparkPoints, fitness minutes, consistency, and - ta dah - the Trivia A Student. So, August was a good month, but with my commitment to the WAYMO? (Wha... Read more

Goals for September

Thursday, September 02, 2010      7 comments

I joined the WAYMO (What are you made of?) challenge for September to give myself something to work toward. Looks like another great group of Sparkers. We are to set 5 individual, challenging goals for the month. I don't think it is cheating tha... Read more

Really Tired Today

Wednesday, September 01, 2010      15 comments

I'm really disappointed. I'm probably too tired to articulate it well, though. I signed up for the Better Sleep Challenge hoping to feel more rested. And actually night before last I had a great night's sleep. But last night I had a restless nig... Read more

In Control?

Tuesday, August 31, 2010      10 comments

I recognize that I almost have the body I want. I am within a pound or two of my ideal weight. Yet, I don't have the eating habits I want. For the past couple months, I have been over my calorie range more than in it. If I set my nutrition tra... Read more

Liberating Discovery

Monday, August 30, 2010      14 comments

I discovered, quite by accident, that I need not worry so much with my hair. This weekend I went swimming. I didn't have the time to wash and style my hair the way I usually do. I didn't even have a hair dryer with me, nor my round brushes, nor ... Read more

Took Another Risk Today

Sunday, August 29, 2010      10 comments

I played trivia again today and I only got 3 out of 4. I did not know that 2/3 of people with arthritis exercise; I guessed it was only 1/4. BUT I still have 90%, 87 out of 97. Will I be brave enough to play tomorrow? I'll lose my monthly trophy... Read more

Risky Behavior

Saturday, August 28, 2010      15 comments

I enjoy playing the Spark Trivia game. I guess I started playing just to earn those 3 SparkPoints a day, but I'd play now even if there was no pay off. And now they've even upped the reward. I got a Trivia trophy in June and I liked that. In Jul... Read more

The One in the Shirt

Friday, August 27, 2010      14 comments

When I blogged about my shirt, several readers asked for a picture. A group of local team members met for a yummy potluck not too long ago at TBRANCH2's lovely home. I wore... Read more

Being My Own Best Friend

Thursday, August 26, 2010      13 comments

Next Wednesday or Thursday I'll blog about my weight. This week I'm not going to stress about the scale, but just focus on eating healthy and achieving at least a small calorie deficit. If it were my best friend in my situation, that is what I w... Read more

Fun Morning

Wednesday, August 25, 2010      7 comments

I had a fun morning. I went to speaker's training and the trainer had a video of two people giving presentations. One of the people was me from about 3 years ago. The trainers and class went on and on about how much weight I've lost! If I ... Read more

Okay, I Did It Again!

Tuesday, August 24, 2010      13 comments

This morning I weighed 125.8, a full .2 below my selected "happy weight" of 126. At 5'6", that is a BMI of 20 and it just feels like the right weight for me. The lowest weight I have been in the last 35 years is 125.6, about 6 weeks ago. The las... Read more

Introducing Slenderella

Sunday, August 22, 2010      16 comments

I changed my screen name yesterday, you know. If you ever want attention from your SparkFriends, change your name and send out a SparkMail. What a wonderful group of friends! I've had 100% positive response. Thank you, thank you. I am begi... Read more

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
