Ended today in range - it was a travel day, so only 4700+ steps, not good.

Ooof, went way over on calories today, but at least fitness was good.

I was eating too much raw food and my digestive system crashed, so I'm taking it a bit easier today, walked the dogs around the neighbourhood market, rode my stationary bike, at an easy pace for half an hour and did some core yoga.. I loved the yoga part the best as it's what I needed today and less fibre! emoticon

Had an early morning today as the choir sang for both services. Potluck brunch between. There's a quick food OD. Didn't seem like much, but by my calculations it was over 700 calories. I'm feeling the deprivation this weekend. I really wish I could eat more than I need to to maintain my weight. Yesterday after the family spent the morning moving MIL to a smaller apartment we went to McD's for lunch. A rare event for me. I sat there with my spicy McChicken (380 calories for a pretty puny, if tasty, sandwich) while a sister in law sat across from me with a quarter pounder with cheese, fries AND a sundae. If I'd had what I really wanted, a CBO burger, small fries and a chocolate shake, one meal would be more calories (1590) than I needed for the whole day. Even with the small sandwich at lunch, I ended up way over for the day. Not fair at all, but that's the way it is. I'm not a big person, I can't eat like one unless I want to be one. In happier news, I got some kitchen organization done this afternoon.

Hi team! Well, made it through my birthday and the holiday with little collateral damage save for the back injury and the plantar faciitis. Both the back and the feet are feeling some better though and next week and the week after I have planned out a fairly consistent, though not overwhelming fitness schedule. We'll see how that goes and either try to maintain that level through the holidays or, if possible, kick it up a notch.

Hi Team. My workout today consisted of chasing the 15 mo old granddaughter :)) and then, after she and Daughter left, I took myself outside for some fresh air and raked leaves for a couple of hours. Fresh crisp air was good for the soul and helps me avoid the emotional dip I always get after they leave.

I cooked down my two pumpkins today for use in making my "famous" pumpkin bread. I have the seeds drying on the counter.

I did pretty well with nutrition today. I haven't tracked everything yet--I do good for breakfast and lunch and then I don't always get dinner etc logged in--need to improve there; I went to a family breakfast gathering and focused on conversation and entertaining granddaughter. It was great to see everyone.

Hope everyone has at least one good memory to tuck away from this past holiday that makes you smile.... :)

I still haven't been on the scale yet; will do that tomorrow morning.

Hello I have much to learn from all of you to maintain! I also took the dog for a CHILLY walk earlier. She keeps me moving.

I stopped a gym near my house earlier. I just went for the pay-as-you-go 9.95/month plan so that I can continue building endurance for running. It's getting too hard to run in the cold. I left with a five month plan with a trainer. That really wasn't in the budget but not as bad as I thought.

This will take me to the St. Patrick's day 5K I have been working toward. emoticon

Hello Team,

Got a late start today, the food hangover lingers. I'm going to try to be very kind to my digestive system all day because I literally feel like crap. Last Thanksgiving season I wasn't Sparking yet and I don't remember feeling this awfully... I wonder if I felt like this all the time and didn't notice?!

Homemade stock is simmering on the stove. Some chicken and vegetable soup is just what the doctor ordered.

Well, I'm trying to get back on the wagon today. I did get a good walk in this am and a decent breakfast. Now I have to resist the urge to glue my bottom to the couch.

Back to eating "normal" after 5 lb weight gain. Weather is beautiful (staying in 80's) so will be taking advantage of that after church. So nice to be outside after our hot hot summer.

Good morning!
Planning on doing some cooking for the freezer today. Also need to get some housework done. I lifted some weights yesterday, so I think I'll walk some hills today. Or maybe a run? I really slacked off of running in November. It is getting dark so early and I just loath the treadmill. Maybe I'll find some new podcasts to listen to while I'm on it.

Everyone have a great day!

~Mandy~
I'll make it to the moon, if I have to crawl.

HI Suzy...and all. I sometimes think the whole of Spark is coming to terms with the fact that we can't eat a lot and be fit and thin. Seems so simple, but boy it is not! That said, once we figure it out, these simple truths are so useful.

I'm still busily learning what it means to maintain. (You'd think that I'd know after 6 years of it!) It doesn't mean always weighing exactly that goal weight. It might mean tolerating (with teeth gritted) being a pound or two above it. And it might mean not being able to add in extra calories. I suspect that I've found the right calorie range for maintaining where I want to, and that calorie range is lower than I'd thought.

two days of walking about 7 miles (in the snow), plus eating reasonably, have had an effect - down to 103, which i haven't seen since we were in hawaii last month and were able to walk and run about 8 miles daily. too bad that everything else suffers (like work, chores, etc) when we spend our time that way, but it sure is fun! today i will pay for it catching up, though... have a great sunday!

Good day yesterday. Exercise, fresh air and relaxation. Big day today. Church, Church treasury work, haircut, errands - hoping to get to the gym for cardio. Wishing everyone a wonderful day!
