a busy Friday

Friday, May 29, 2015      1 comments

The main goal for today is to finish painting my dresser, but up until now I had only primed it and with 4 hours required between coats (I have another hour or so to wait to do the second coat on the first side), it will be tomorrow. The edges w... Read more

moving: my lazy accomplishment (that facilitates my zumba schedule)

Thursday, May 28, 2015      1 comments

I have prepared for my move by hiring a moving company to do it for me. In many respects, I feel lazy, it's not like I have much furniture to move (I'll have my couch and bed delivered separately). What frustrates me is just organizing some frie... Read more

1 week in!

Wednesday, May 27, 2015      3 comments

Tonight after zumba I wanted something sweet. There are still mini-magnum bars in the freezer and I found myself thinking, 'why not, I just did zumba...' and I stopped right there! I navigated around the refilled nut bowls (well, one of the thre... Read more

I believe today is day 5 of my return. I am feeling positive. My accomplishments: ~6 hours of zumba this week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday (regular class, step&tone, and a master class last night... this could be why I'm so positi... Read more

Day 2.

Thursday, May 21, 2015      1 comments

Yesterday I started feeling down about my body and I'm wondering if my reaction has something to do with being on here so having a goal to make a change to my body and from that a resulting dissatisfaction with my body as it is. Something along ... Read more

I first joined Sparkpeople in I think 2008 and though I wandering off with confidence about my eating habits, I keep coming back for reinforcement and reminders. My goal right now is to trim up one pound per week over the next 10-12 weeks. In th... Read more

Monday, May 12, 2014      0 comments

Things have been BUSY lately. I haven't tracked for about two weeks and I don't know if I have too much time to track right now. What I am going to do is see how I'm doing without tracking food and if I can't intuit then I'll have to get back to... Read more

food bloating

Sunday, April 27, 2014      0 comments

Last week I planned my food and was feeling good. Until Thursday night. I moved. Of course, I didn't move into an apartment stocked with healthy food. My boyfriend and I went to a pub where I had two beers and a chicken taco salad. The salad was... Read more

apple-bodied me

Monday, April 21, 2014      0 comments

Not to be confused with apple-bottomed. I had thought of myself on the hourglass side of things, not a full hourglass, I guess a bit towards the brick since I have a short waist. Nonetheless, when I measure my waist and hips there is a substanti... Read more

Getting over a mini-egg binge.

Wednesday, April 16, 2014      0 comments

I binged on mini eggs on Monday... though I wouldn't call it a binge. I mindlessly ate a few handfuls and though I enjoyed the first few, the pleasure of the mini egg disappears after the first few. I kept going though, as drawn in my a mysterio... Read more

need for a change

Monday, April 14, 2014      1 comments

Not just in my eating habits, though there too. I am not feeling comfortable in my own skin right now and even though I'm going to zumba three times per week and yoga at least once, I'm not eating right... maybe more on that later. The long... Read more

weight markers

Monday, April 07, 2014      0 comments

... and sort of odd markers. Two years ago when my Dad was ill, I was weighing around 146. I had at that time lost about 12 pounds in the previous few months, though I'd had two bad colds. When he passed away at the end of April 2012, I we... Read more

this weekend

Sunday, April 06, 2014      2 comments

This weekend started out wonderfully (and overall it was a good weekend, but keep reading). I got to the gym for zumba (my boyfriend also came but I had him drop me off at the door because the parking lot was busy and I only had 10 minutes until... Read more
