Tweaking the Plans
Saturday, January 08, 2011      10 comments

I was down .8 pounds at Weight Watcher this morn. Hooray!! I've kind of changed a goal. In 2011, I decided I won't worry about being obsessed with the scale. I plan for 2011 to be the year I overcome binge eating. Binging put 6 pounds on m... Read more
The Beck Solution - Part 2
Friday, January 07, 2011      11 comments

In the Beck Diet Solution (accurate subtitle is: train your brain to think like a thin person) you prepare to "diet". I'd prefer to call it developing a healthy lifestyle, but I think the idea of preparing for it makes a lot of sense. The f... Read more
Another Benefit of Healthy Living
Thursday, January 06, 2011      10 comments

I can't prove that my healthier lifestyle is the cause, but I can't think of any other factor to credit. I had a great dental check up yesterday. My gums -- I guess you would say they had been receding -- are all back within the normal range. My... Read more
Out of the Blue
Wednesday, January 05, 2011      8 comments

I was shopping in WalMart, focused on getting things I needed for a presentation to a group of potential Sparkers, frustrated that they didn't have a table top flip chart, when out of the blue an attractive woman about my age stopped me. She ask... Read more
Building a Different Muscle
Tuesday, January 04, 2011      6 comments

I went to Books a Million to buy the new paperback, The Spark, for a friend. While I was there, I saw The Beck Diet Solution on sale for $5.95. The subtitle is something about learning to think like a thin person. I've seen quite a few people bo... Read more
I Did It!
Sunday, January 02, 2011      12 comments

I weighed less this morning than I did on November 20, 2010. I accomplished a No Gain Holiday! So I am celebrating. I'm going to reward myself by buying something I've been wanting a long time: a heart rate monitor. I'm going for the 2011 C... Read more
Enough for Now
Saturday, January 01, 2011      8 comments

I hoped to end 2010 with a profound analysis of my year and start 2011 with a compelling list of goals I'll achieve. Instead, let me just say I did good in 2010. And I'm going to do good in 2011, too. That's enough for now.... Read more
Found a New Food!!
Thursday, December 30, 2010      13 comments

A friend gave me some citrus out of her yard and I was totally confused. They were ruby red on the inside, like ruby red grapefruits, but they were the size of medium oranges and the peel was orange. The taste was kind of between an orange and a... Read more
Turning Point
Tuesday, December 28, 2010      11 comments

Today I was thinking back over turning points in my journey to health and fitness. One time I became very aware that my attitude had changed when I found myself cutting back on my dear old overweight dog's portions. For years I had worried tha... Read more
Getting Better
Monday, December 27, 2010      4 comments

In 2010 I did a good job with exercise, averaging over 2 times per week strength training and 6 days per week of cardio. I plan to keep that up in 2011, but I have a strategy, not exactly new, to keep me motivated. I plan to track and improve ... Read more
Today is When the Rubber Hits the Road
Sunday, December 26, 2010      9 comments

Today is the day after Christmas, the day after a day of indulgence. I enjoyed every bite -- even the fudge -- especially the fudge. I enjoyed cooking big and I enjoyed sharing the whole meal with my loved ones. By my historical standards, it wa... Read more
Christmas Interlude
Saturday, December 25, 2010      6 comments

Merry Christmas!! I'm cooking up a storm and indulging a bit, but think I'm really in control. We'll see. Our biggest laugh so far was Natalie trying to jump rope. She had the jumping down. In fact she was frantically jumping, waving the ro... Read more
The Clean SWEEP Plan
Friday, December 24, 2010      9 comments

I slept 8 hours last night. Good S for sleep! I already drank my 8 glasses of plain water today. Good W for water! I just finished boiling the eggs for deviled eggs. I made pumpkin bread, fudge, and yam casserole for tomorrow. I didn't... Read more
Did You Get SparkPoints?
Wednesday, December 22, 2010      9 comments

The other day I invited a good friend of mine to go for a hike at a county park. Sparkie EILEENV5 commented on all my SparkPoints. My good friend looked at me suspiciously. She asked, "Did you get SparkPoints for bringing me on this walk?" I lau... Read more
Changing Focus

At my Weight Watchers meeting yesterday I saw the goal I had set the first week of 2010. For the year my main goal was to maintain my weight between 129 and 135. I weighed in 26 times at WW so far in 2010. My highest WW weigh in was January 16, ... Read more
