Must stay focused

Sunday, August 24, 2014      2 comments

Hurray, I lost a pound! I'm going to celebrate that and not chastise myself for not doing enough exercise or making better food choices that would have meant I could have lost more. I am in this for the long haul and need to be able to sustain... Read more

Plugging along

Thursday, August 21, 2014      1 comments

Busy week at work. Did manage to get in a few walks, took the stairs all but once. I didn't see but a tiny bit of progress on the scale--and maybe that was wishful thinking but I'm not giving up. I just have to stick with it. It will happen.... Read more

Week one of the return

Saturday, August 16, 2014      2 comments

What went well--took the stairs again and it is getting easier. I hit my targets for carb/fat/protein distribution and stayed within calorie range. It's Friday. I am really hoping to see results on the scale tomorrow--but if I don't, I'm not ... Read more

Day I don't know in first week

Friday, August 15, 2014      2 comments

I turned down cake at work. I used part of my break time for walks. I took the stairs. I got on the treadmill instead of the computer before dinner even though it was still a little too hot and humid. It feels good to be making wiser choices.... Read more

Day 5 I think

Tuesday, August 12, 2014      2 comments

What went well...I took the stairs at work all but one time. I used the elliptical on my morning break. I had water instead of a latte. Portions controlled, calories within limits. Flossed my teeth every day since going to the dentist last w... Read more

Day 4 of the return

Monday, August 11, 2014      2 comments

What went my exercise in yesterday and stayed well within calorie range. Now that I've been measuring portions and making the effort to exercise, hubby is seeing I am serious again and is starting to be more supportive. It was much ... Read more

Day 2 of the return

Saturday, August 09, 2014      1 comments

What went well today...I got enough sleep. I got my shopping done early and got in my time on the treadmill before lunch. I got to spend time with my family. I cleaned out a couple of drawers. I tracked my calories and stayed within range tod... Read more

This is me never giving up

Friday, August 08, 2014      1 comments

This past year has been frustrating because I continue to struggle with taking care of myself. It was a busy year...son graduating from college, long-awaited promotion for me amidst major changes at CEO, staffing cuts, restructuring.... Read more

Time Zones

Saturday, September 28, 2013      4 comments

The only problem I have with SparkPeople is it works off one time zone. I often don't finish my entries until after 9pm--which then shows up on the next day since I am 3 hours behind wherever SP originates. Other than that, I am so glad to be ... Read more

Two steps forward, one step back

Saturday, September 28, 2013      4 comments

I've been doing well keeping my focus on my goals. The last couple of days I had a bit of a sore throat and haven't felt that well. I was more active yesterday so gave myself today off. I think I needed the rest. I will get back on track tom... Read more

Time Waster

Tuesday, September 24, 2013      3 comments

Spark coach assignment--well, I know that time spent on Facebook and in front of the TV are time wasters. Once I am at work--my time is generally not my own but I will admit to taking a long lunch break when I could spend part of that time walk... Read more

Go figure

Tuesday, September 24, 2013      1 comments

Today on my way home I was actually looking forward to getting on the treadmill for a quick walk before dinner. As soon as I started my walk I realized it felt GOOD to be walking and I really savored and enjoyed that feeling.... Read more

I made the right choice

Monday, September 23, 2013      1 comments

Yesterday, I made a goal to take a walk at work today--to go to the exercise room before going to my car, even if it was only for a 10-minute walk. Or, to take a walk at some point during the day. I almost never work less than 9 hours a day an... Read more

Another season, another attempt

Sunday, September 22, 2013      0 comments

One thing you can say about me is I never give up. No matter how many times I start and stop, I know that I will never give up completely. So, here I am again making yet another attempt to get healthier. My most recent motivation was spurred ... Read more

I can't believe I'm here again

Monday, July 29, 2013      0 comments

I can't believe I'm here again, saying I'm going to try again. It is so easy to get derailed and frankly, for the past year, I really haven't cared. Unfortunately, now I'm paying the price of my self-indulgence. It is hard work to exercise an... Read more
