Not Deprived

Wednesday, December 26, 2012      14 comments

I've been reading some great blogs about Christmas eating, abundance, and feelings of deprivation. It is true that when there are many foods to choose it is easy to take too much. Yesterday I ate within my calorie range. I enjoyed my food immens... Read more

It's noon, but daughter, SIL, and grandkids will be here before too long. This year Santa came to their house, but there are lots and lots of presents to open here, too. Last year Santa came to our house for them, but it is good for a young fami... Read more

Thanks to ONEKIDSMOM and the snipping tool, I was finally able to post the report I tried to post earlier. Here's a chart of my weight from the time I reset my program in August of 2010 until present: Read more

Monday, December 24, 2012      18 comments

I wanted to post a SparkPeople report to show my weight fluctuations over the past couple years. I saved the SP report in my picture files, but when I tried to "add picture" to a blog, it said it was not a valid image. Anyone know how to overcom... Read more

Today I had my choice: either a 7 mile run at 1 minute walk:1 run ratio or 10 miles with more running. I chose to go 10 miles. We started out at 1 min. walk: 4 minute run ratio, but switched to 2 minute run intervals about half way through. Love... Read more

Starting Again

Wednesday, December 19, 2012      19 comments

The most positive way I can say this is that I made it 7 full days on my streak of tracking and staying in my calorie range, despite a house full of very tempting junk food. And I'm starting my streak again today. This time I'm going to make it ... Read more

Intervals Differently

Tuesday, December 18, 2012      18 comments

Today I did a treadmill run at the gym. After a 10 minute walking warm up, I ran 3.1 miles. I was aiming to do it under 30 minutes and I made it in 29:47. My PR is 28:28 in a race, so today was not a personal best, but it was one of my best trai... Read more

For Christmas I got Natalie a Kids in the Kitchen cookbook, apron, chef's hat, measuring cups and spoons, whip, etc. I also ordered her a book (used) her mother loved when she was a little girl. Natalie was interested when we talked about it, so... Read more

Slow Day

Saturday, December 15, 2012      19 comments

I ended up running today with my old group, with a run:walk ratio of 1 min:1 min. Even though my back is not 100% I would have preferred more running and faster. We went right about 5 miles in 70 minutes. A couple times I ran an exta loop when ... Read more

Hey, I'm liking these Post It warning signs on hubby's junk food so much that I'm expanding this effort. I'm putting "Portion Control" reminders on the peanut butter, almonds, raisins, and Cheerios. Won't hurt! Hubby wants car this morning,... Read more

Based on a SparkFriend's comment (thanks, Aquagirl) I took a pack of Post It notes in various colors. I wrote, "Calorie Minefield," "Watch Out!", "Alert: Junk," "Not Worth It," or a simple "Calories" and labeled most of the junk food found throu... Read more

May Take Some Weeks

Tuesday, December 11, 2012      15 comments

Well, I still don't have a middle two on the scale, but I do have another day of eating on program (within calorie range) in my streak. I do not have to eat the junk just because it is in my house. I appreciated all the commiseration, wisdom and... Read more
