Is That Me in the Mirror?
Friday, October 29, 2010      13 comments

Every morning I wake up and look in the mirror. There is still, even after about a year at BMI 20.2-21, a certain amount of surprise. It's not really that I expect to see me fat again, it is more like I don't have an image of myself right now t... Read more
Bragging Again
Thursday, October 28, 2010      11 comments

I just answered trivia questions 67, 68, and 69 for the month. I don't show up on the leaderboards because I was gone for a week and many, many people have answered more questions than I. However, this is the first month that on day 28 I am stil... Read more

Glad to report that mom is doing better than I had feared. I wish to heavens she lived much closer. Having her half a continent away is not good for either of us at this point, but she is competent and I don't think that situation will change, d... Read more
Do you shower before gym? Clean before the maid?
Saturday, October 16, 2010      18 comments

This morning I woke up and my plans were to go to the gym within a couple hours. It somehow seemed silly, but I had this overwhelming desire to take a shower. So I did. I went to the gym clean, did my strength training and then an hour of Zumba.... Read more

I'm getting ready to fly to Tucson on Monday to visit my elderly mother. I hope to be some help to her as we review her situation. I am debating whether to track my food while I'm gone or not. I'll only be gone five days. Could take my Wei... Read more

Holiday Weight Gain Not Inevitable
Wednesday, October 13, 2010      12 comments

I was thinking that I better lose a pound or two in preparation for the holidays. I know I've read that the average American gains 15 pounds or 10 pounds or 5 pounds (depending on what you are reading) between Halloween and New Year's. Many year... Read more
9,496 Times and Follow Up
Tuesday, October 12, 2010      15 comments

I just went to edit my SparkPage and saw a surprising number. It says in the lower left hand corner that my SparkPage has been viewed 9,496 times! That is amazing. Of course, I look at it fairly often, but that is not all me. Did you know ... Read more
Fun with No Consequences???
Monday, October 11, 2010      10 comments

I'm at the top of the weight range that is acceptable to me AND I had to attend a prime rib mystery dinner fund raiser. Of course, I did not have to eat it, but I chose to enjoy some. I ate very moderately and don't expect a gain tomorrow morni... Read more
Not Sure
Saturday, October 09, 2010      14 comments

Yesterday I saw a woman I hadn't seen in months. She asked me if I'd lost weight on purpose, and I assured her I had. "I hate you," she said, and walked away. It didn't feel right and left me wondering what I could do. I suspect she's been gaini... Read more
Short Term Obstacle

As I blogged, I rode 25 miles on my bike on Sunday and then 10 more miles on Wednesday. My bike is really comfy, the weather was gorgeous both days, I felt no discomfort, and thoroughly enjoyed both rides. So I was really surprised to find a ro... Read more

Inspired By a Blog
Tuesday, October 05, 2010      12 comments

I read a blog some time ago, I don't even remember who the blogger was, about a Sparker who walked to town each morning to enjoy a cup of coffee. That sounded like a very nice thing to do and I kind of tucked the idea into the back of my mind fo... Read more
Changing My Schedule for More Success
Monday, October 04, 2010      14 comments

I just realized that I'm having more trouble with evening snacking because of the Better Sleep Challenge. Before the challenge, I often "walked" (Leslie Sansone style) while I watched TV in the evening. When I was active I wasn't snacking or eve... Read more
New Personal Distance Record
Sunday, October 03, 2010      11 comments

I just got back from a 25 mile bike ride, which is my longest ever. I really concentrated on distance today, not speed, and took the time to thoroughly enjoy the beautiful day and the gorgeous trail. I accidentally hit something on my MP3 player... Read more
