Uncharacteristic patriotism for Canada Day, eh?

Tuesday, June 30, 2009      1 comments

Tomorrow is July 1st. What we Canadians used to call Dominion Day. And now call Canada's birthday (it's our 142nd, if you're asking) or Canada Day, or whatever. The failure to be prescriptive about the name is in itself pretty typical of Ca... Read more

A Little Fatigue . . . Having Faith

Thursday, June 25, 2009      7 comments

I am sustaining my cheerful mood and feeling grateful for the excellent treatment I'm getting (reducing my statistical chance of recurrence from about 25% to maybe 2-3%) but: the cumulative effect of the series of treatments is making me somewha... Read more

Shopping in My Closet

Saturday, June 20, 2009      3 comments

OK, the scales aren't moving just now -- only tantalizing me by wavering a pound or two lower, pausing provokingly, and then settling back on the 158.5. (This is, of course, a more reassuring portent of better things to come than the reverse --... Read more

Moving on Down!

Tuesday, June 16, 2009      2 comments

It was a thrill to see a "5" as the middle number on the scales today! Just 3.5 pounds to go to goal weight, but I know it may take 3 or more weeks to get there: the weight comes off much more slowly at this point. However, wearing a size six ... Read more

Feeling good and grateful

Thursday, June 11, 2009      2 comments

This has been a red letter day! Completed month one yesterday: I'm down a further three pounds -- five to go to goal weight. It is doable and -- with a lot of support -- I seem to be doing it. Much more fun rooting in my closet with clothes... Read more

Getting close to a month

Tuesday, June 09, 2009      6 comments

I'm almost at the one month point -- and am finding this approach to tracking food and exercise very helpful. More than half way to my goal weight: it's slow but steady -- and feeling confident that I will get there.... Read more

New Profile Image and Spark Page

Sunday, June 07, 2009      4 comments

It was fun today to work on finding a juicy watermelon profile image and watermelon wallpaper for my spark page, and then adding a few pictures. Many thanks for the encouragement to do this from SP member JOPAGH. And: I finally managed (with m... Read more

General uptick in mood

Saturday, June 06, 2009      2 comments

Tracking my nutrition and exercise plus the support from other Spark people is definitely having a positive effect on my mood. I'm a cheerful type anyhow: but this is a good place. Took some measurements today -- lost inches (neck, hips, w... Read more

Pretty good day!

Thursday, June 04, 2009      0 comments

Made it to the gym this morning; ate healthily all day (apparently a little light on the fats . . . despite almonds AND cashews!) and hopeful that I'll soon see another dip on the scales. It's slow but it's steady so that's gotta be ok.... Read more

Gym AND Golf

Tuesday, June 02, 2009      2 comments

Lots of exercise today -- gym at 5:30 a.m., golf after work (nine holes), a beautiful evening and feeling good. On track wtih the eating and not too fussed about the scales. The weight will go down in its own good time: it has to!... Read more

Waiting (im)patiently!

Monday, June 01, 2009      2 comments

OK, the weight has nowhere to go BUT down so long as I am sticking with the programme: and I am. And: I was able to wear a suit today which had not been comfortable for some time, so there has to be some change occurring all right. G... Read more

Tough weekend

Sunday, May 31, 2009      2 comments

I found it hard to stick to a healthy eating plan this weekend -- mostly, I think, because the scales did NOT move down, as I had been hoping and expecting. So: the right way to deal with that would be to eat too much?? Not. And, by substitut... Read more

Weekend coming up

. . . and, I'm hoping to get into the garden and do a little planting!... Read more

Great workout today

Thursday, May 28, 2009      1 comments

It's amazing to me how much more I enjoy my day when I get to the gym before breakfast and do my cardio and weights routine. Never ever feel like going: always glad that I did. So: why do I have to learn this one over and over again??... Read more

resilience

Wednesday, May 27, 2009      1 comments

This Spark thing is really helping with resilience -- healthy eating plus exercise plus the sense that a whole lot of others are trying to do the same. I'm liking it a lot!... Read more
