Poor Math Skills and difficulty with a full belly
I have been so happy with my progress since I started here at SP last march (08). My big goal is 150 by 40, which has a nice ring to it, don't you think?
It seemed as if I might not quite get exactly there by age 40 on the nose, but I would b... Read more
Let's Go Bootcamp!!
I have always wanted to join one of the extra team challenges or bootcamps, but none were right for me exactly. But this January Bootcamp with coach nicole seems perfect.
I don't feel like things have gone poorly, or that I am 'off the wagon'... Read more
Holiday Goals (and cookies and wine and baked goods ahhhh!)
Well I've been trying to come up with some mini goals to shake things up a little bit. I enjoy my daily goals,... Read more
I got a new attitude!
They should somehow figure out a way to track attitude.
Every day I track my eating and my nutrition, but nowhere can I track how my attitude is doing.
I guess that's becau... Read more
I feel practically waifish!!!
I finally feel as if I left the shadow of my vacation behind me. It was a good vacation. I felt good about what I ate (a nice balance of intention and not feeling deprived). I re... Read more
Would I keep this up if....
A year ago, a good friend died suddenly and violently.
2 months ago, my Dad got a terminal diagnosis.
7 months ago, I started on Sparkpeople.
These things (and others) cause a certain amount of reflection on one’s life. The combinatio... Read more
Vacation all I ever wanted!
No, I have not fallen off of the Sparkpeople wagon! It has been a while since I've posted, and for the first time since March of this year, I didn't track my food or exercise for 2 weeks (because of vacation).
So, here's an upd... Read more
Coming Out of a Low Point
For 1 week I didn't work out b/c I was sick.
At the end of my illness I hurt my back, another week gone.
But for 2 days now, I've been back out (gingerly, but still out) working out. And my eating has been more on my terms, and more in m... Read more
Being Sick Messes with the Mind
I have all of these things I want to blog about (my 5th month anniversary, new goals, not being ready to enter stage 4--does anyone else panic when they move you to a new stage??).
The only reason I have time to write today is that I am at ... Read more
Problem Goal-- strength training
I'm a week late (a little behind what with the temper tantrum and all, which has mostly subsided, I'm happy to say!).
Last week it was one of my goals (given by SP) to write about a problem goal.
I have found it hard to get strength train... Read more
My first Sparkpeople temper tantrum...
It had to come sometime.
After 4 1/2 months of feeling like it was mostly going my way, I'm pissed off.
And I blame Sparkpeople (even as I realize how irrational that thinking is).
Why am I pissed off?
I'm not even sure. But so fa... Read more
I'm trying not to be too morose about this, but I GAINED 2 lbs this week. I don't get it, truly. I did better than previously when I lost 5 lbs. There just doesn't see to be much rhyme or reason to it. I've been doing very well for 4 months ... Read more
25% done!! This is for real!
I was very excited this week to weigh 5 pounds less than 2 weeks ago (especially since last week I gained 1/2 pound).
But after I put the weight in that evening, I looked at my little weight tracker on my sparkpage, and saw that she had cro... Read more
4 month anniversary ramblings
I haven't blogged in a while, b/c I haven't had much to say.
I still don't, but it's in my goals to blog, so here we go.
My goals are still being met:
--walking almost every day (a 15 minute mile for 30 minutes)
--drinking at least 8 ... Read more
Is it still me in that mirror?
I'm having 2 separate experiences in front of the mirror.
The first is a feeling of shocked exhilaration when I notice something new. For example, this weekend I realized my former triple chin is now a double chin. It is shocking and amazing... Read more
