Breaking this plateau!
Ok - I've tried exercising a lot, but my eating has not been under control, so I'm trying something new. I'm going to cut down on carbs - this has worked for me before. It's also good discipline to try something new - to adhere to the rules an... Read more
I'm irritated because my weight has been stuck for a week. I have been being more disciplined in my eating, but apparently not disciplined enough. It's tempting to think of starting a no-carb diet or something similarly harsh, but I know that'... Read more
Back to working out
I started with a bike ride yesterday, trying to get some practice for an upcoming trip. I've done long trips on flat areas, but yesterday did 15.4 miles on some rolling hills. That was an eye-opener. I clearly need more hill practice. After ... Read more
Stressful day, no stress eating
Good day - very busy at work doing something that makes me a nervous wreck, but I managed to keep my food sanity. :) Although I didn't work out this morning, I did get a good night's sleep, and I've kept to my calorie range today.
I add... Read more
Day two and all is well
Managed to get through the night with some good food and drink choices! I tracked my food last night, wh... Read more
Inspired by PASKALINI, I've reset my goals, and I'm declaring today a new start. I am worried about tonight as nights are my bad time, but I have recruited spousal help, and I'm feeling pretty determined. Thanks for your good wishes!... Read more
Good enough for God
I could go all kinds of directions with a title like that.
What I have in mind is revamping a recen... Read more
If you don't like starting over, stop giving up.
Really. This is supposed to be a lifestyle change. I've got to do better. I've been sick with a throat infection and the residual stuff for about 2 weeks. It's like somebody gave me a license to abuse my body. I've been very bad.
Bad S... Read more
When I first started using SparkPeople, I think part of my success came from learning how to reward myself without using food. Yesterday, after a week of snow and ice, the sun was out! And I was actually sunbathing on my deck. Temps were in t... Read more
Nighttime is the wrong time for snacking!
I have got to get a handle on nighttime eating. Last night, I basically screwed up a really good day. All it took was an argument and some worry over my mom's surgery, and I hoovered up a serving of pecan log, a truffle ball, and way too much ... Read more
Braced for success!
I got braces last week, and that has been a big change! The pain, the change in my diet, the difficulty in sleeping -- I've just stopped working out. This is not good, especially after a 10-lb. gain since October. I am hopeful that tonight I ... Read more
Glad it's Sunday!
I'm always glad when Sunday rolls around - seems like a good day to start over. I start over a lot. But that's better than stopping, right? It's been a good day, and that inspires me. I hope that this week is easier than I think it's going t... Read more
A small stumble
Had a really emotional couple of days due to some family issues. I did manage to do well at an office party yesterday, but last night I ate that piece of pecan pie that's been taunting me in the fridge. Not a huge deal - I will do better today... Read more
On the other side of something
Have you ever noticed that after a few days of dedicated working out and tracking, of watching what you eat, suddenly your body seems to want what you want? I mean, tonight after I worked out, it hit me that today for the first time in a long t... Read more
Let's not talk (much) about last night.
I did not eat a chinese buffet last night. That's what I tracked because I feel like the amount of food I ate was outrageous and embarrassing. I found that if I choose "chinese buffet," I can get a huge calorie count without all the entering. ... Read more
