Things That Make You Go... Whaa-aat?
So I stepped on the scale this morning, all happy because I lost inches everywhere. And that rarely happens for me. Usually, I'll lose in my waist, but not my hips. Or my hips get a turn on the Reduction Ride, but the waist stays put. I figu... Read more
The Sugar Report, Day 5 =)
Back to work today - but with a few modifications. First, I had an egg for breakfast this morning along with my usual oatmeal. I was still pretty hungry by snack recess, but I wasn't feeling starved at lunchtime, like I usually am. So that's ... Read more
The Sugar Report, Day 4
Well, I did extremely well on sweets today! I was tempted - oh yes, I was tempted. Especially at Red Robin, which is full of My Favorite Things (milkshakes and sundaes and bottomless floats!). But, although I thought about it, I didn't indulg... Read more
The Sugar Report, Day 3 - Progress!!
Well, it's the weekend. I was curious to see what being off work would do to my sugar intake. Now, I know - and it hasn't killed me like it did the cat! ... Read more
The Sugar Report, Day 2
I tried to space my snacks out more today, adding a little more protein to breakfast. That seemed to help with the cravings at lunchtime. But the after school cravings stayed the same. I truly don't yet know if it's hunger, or exhaustion. I ... Read more
Sweet Tooth Tally - Day 1
Okay, here's the damage for today:
I was really craving sweets around lunchtime - no surprise, since I was hungry! But since I had a lunch ready to go, I didn't eat the cookies that were hiding in a cupboard in my building.
I also sta... Read more
The Dreaded Vacation Backslide
My week started out in the most amazing way. I completed a 14 mile hike to the top of a mountain peak with my brother on Sunday. It's another check-mark on my Miracle List, and I burned a gazillion calories that day. (Well, maybe not a gazilli... Read more
Wow, am I not doing well!
I was so motivated last Sunday to have a great week. And I did a great job exercising, too. I met my calories burned goal - and I climbed to the top of the rock wall at the Cub Scout event yesterday. Girl Power!
But I can't seem to sta... Read more

100 Spark Points in One Day!
And I'm really proud of myself for doing it! I've been wanting to hit that target for a while now. I swam for 90 minutes today, which is how I got the 100 points. I was playing around with my kids, and we had the best time. I just wish I had the... Read more
Results! Loving the 28 Day Challenge!
Okay, so it's going to be a bit more than 28 days for me because my vacations threw me off. Why do I persist in thinking that In-N-Out Burger has no calories when I'm on vacation?
But, I had a weigh-in today, and here are my results:

WOW! Check out this workout!
I tripped over this one on Netflix streaming. "Crunch: Boot Camp Training," with Susan Hitzman. I felt like I was swimming in a pool of sweat afterwards, but, boy, do I feel that workout! I think I'm going to finish up with some yoga and call ... Read more
War on Water
I love water. Waterfalls, swimming pools, lakes, oceans - you name it, I love it.
My problem is drinking water. I don't do it. Literally, I just don't do it. Sure, if I'm exercising, I'll keep that water bottle beside me. Maybe I'll even t... Read more
Results! The 28-Day Challenge ROCKS!
I admit that I suspected that Sparkpeople had me eating too few calories for my fitness level. But, I was so desperate to get my weight loss jump started that I stuck with it for the first week of the 28-Day Challenge.
I completed Week 1 ye... Read more
Independence... It's not just for the nation anymore!
I started up on SparkPeople again yesterday, July 4... Independence Day. I didn't do this on purpose, but it seemed fitting. I am finally declaring independence from these last 17 pounds I need to lose.
My motivator? The mirror, what else! ... Read more
