  • March 1, pretty successful February

    3/1/2015 11:27:06 AM, by SANDY1969

    Not real sure how it happened but I am down 10 pounds from Feb 1. I was totally blown away when I weighed myself and the scale fell on 308. Happy Happy Happy! This past 6 days I have walked at least 1.25 miles BEFORE going to work and then sometimes coming home and walking more. I had a pers... Read more

  • Last Day

    2/28/2015 6:18:00 AM, by SANDY1969

    To lock it down for the month of February. Woke up at 5, did not have to be up yet. Electric had gone out in the night so I knew by the time I re-set my clock and went potty I'd never go back to sleep anyway so here I am. I really do not want to walk this morning, but I have my shoes on and... Read more

  • Your mind is sometimes WORSE than your out of shape body!

    2/26/2015 11:21:46 AM, by JEEPINRED

    Yesterday, I went to my boxing class and we had to do a burpee jump up onto a box. My mind was SCREAMING at me! "NO, you'll fall! You'll hurt yourself. You can't do it." I stood in front of the box, pulled my arms back and my feet would NOT move. I couldn't get my head to tell my bo... Read more

  • almost but not quite

    2/26/2015 10:01:25 AM, by SANDY1969

    Almost blew it. Had those toaster strudels in my hand. 180 calories that's not so bad. But how many did I have to eat to get full? What I actually ate was a turkey sandwich, banana and yogurt. 380 calories total. Crisis averted!! lol Every week this month I have lost weight only to... Read more

  • The Number Glaring Back At Me

    2/24/2015 3:44:56 PM, by JEEPINRED

    No, it's not the scale today. That's for another blog, but the number today is my all-time fitness number. It's that little number that tells you the most minutes you exercised in any one day. Every time I go to my spark counter, I see 2013. I exercised for 206 minutes on May 5th o... Read more

  • It's a new dawn.

    OK Today is a new day. Enough griping and whining. Time to make today better and more successful. Drink my water. Get my heart rate up walking. New personal challenge of 12,000 steps a day this week. I can't do that sitting here. Have a great day! ... Read more

  • So mad I could spit

    2/23/2015 6:50:55 PM, by SANDY1969

    Today's not been a great day. I slept horrible, my weight was up because of the weekend, I had to be at work early...then I come home to my "support system" Spark people, and read an email from someone that's supposed to be a help mate. I belong to a group. In the past I have been involved in... Read more

  • Weekly Weigh-in (02.22.2015): New Week, New Low

    2/21/2015 9:12:07 AM, by TRENTDREAMER

    ==THIS WEEK Not a lot on the exercise front, but a decent amount of physical activity. Eating was pretty good. Nothing to report. Upping the number of daily vegetables has changed a major aspect of my life. The grocery store chain I've been shopping at regularly for the past several years does... Read more

  • Today so far

    2/20/2015 3:43:14 PM, by SANDY1969

    Well I had a short shift at work this morning. I had to be there at 7:30 so no walk but I just walked a little bit for a small calorie burn, now my grand daughter and I are lifting 1 pound weights. Ok she is almost 2 years old. She does not start at 1, she likes the number 9, so we do 9, 9, 9, 9.... Read more

  • Does this make me look fat?

    2/19/2015 6:19:06 PM, by JEEPINRED

    Yep. This blog is about our thoughts while clothes shopping. I was thinking the other day, and I believe I have it all wrong. And, then I was thinking a bit more and I think some of you might, too. Here's the thing. I'm sure most of us have been in the situation asking ourselves, "Does thi... Read more

  • Better days.

    2/19/2015 7:52:59 AM, by SANDY1969

    Yesterday turned out to be a much better day than I have had in over a week. I was on track, not over calories, exercised, drank water...which lead to bathroom trips which got rid of the weekend weight. Now to just work on a loss for Saturday. Even 1 itty bitty pound. Or, as I like to imagine...... Read more

  • not worthy of a title

    2/18/2015 8:36:46 AM, by SANDY1969

    This past week I am struggling badly with food. Not exercise and staying active but food. By food, BAD food. Not a lot of food, just BAD food. Wanting to crawl into my chocolate cave and forget about all of this for a while. Maybe it's the weather and trying to find comfort. Just m... Read more

  • Weekly Weigh-in (02.15.2015): Boom Week!!

    2/15/2015 9:42:39 AM, by TRENTDREAMER

    As those of you who have known me longest know, my blogs become very scarce when there's nothing really new to report. In a lot of ways I feel as though I just really don't have that much to say. I sometimes feel as though my time at SparkPeople is already over. I don't know **LAST 4 WEEKS ... Read more

  • Heading for the weekend.

    2/12/2015 8:10:50 AM, by SANDY1969

Still stayed pretty active during the day though and this morning I walked a little over 1.5 miles and rode my exercise bike for 16 minutes (4 miles). Off to work today ugggghhhh! But then 3 days off. We ... Read more

    2/10/2015 7:56:50 AM, by SANDY1969

    The scale is not moving do to a few things. 1. my food choices in the evening have been not so great. Not over calorie, just carb-o-rama. Fats too. Struggling to do better. I have to make the exercising count. On a high note I went back and looked and I weight 30 pounds less than I did at... Read more

  • Do you think about your weight all day too?

    2/8/2015 8:56:18 AM, by SANDY1969

    How many times will I think about my weight today? How many times will it embarrass me? My husband and I were out yesterday. We went shopping and we went out to eat. I bought some work clothes. They were size 3X. I feel good about that, but I know they are a BIG size 3X. When I began this... Read more

  • My Journey #49 - Update for New Year - 2/6/2015

    2/6/2015 7:16:19 PM, by ROBBGIN

    It's been eight months since I last did a blog so I thought I'd sit down and update all my Spark friends. The last time I posted things were getting rough, or so I thought, because I could feel my depression coming on and I was upset about it. Good news is that I don't feel that way at the present...

  • January Recap/February Goals

    2/2/2015 9:32:34 AM, by NEELIXNKES

    January seemed to go by in a flurry. I don't know if it is just because I have been sick for a week or what. I didn't accomplish much this month at all. I didn't finish cleaning the cabinets or the freezers. I did earn over 2400 sparkpoints. I did finish the challenges I was in but didn't have ... Read more
