Tracking my food

Saturday, July 12, 2008

I haven't been up on Spark in a long time. I fell and bruised my patella and the top of my shin-bone, and let me tell ya, that HURTS! Needless to say, I didn't get to do much of anything as far as exercise, so I got really discouraged. Then I tripped over one of the cats, twisting my back, but you will all be happy to learn that the cat is just fine! As I lay on the bed yelping, she jumped up to say 'While you're there doing nothing, how about petting me? And what are you carrying on about? I'm fine!"

I am losing weight in spite of these setbacks, but it's been really slow! So TokenFatGuy, my wonderful, loving, buff husband has been gently prodding me to keep track of what I eat to speed up the weight-loss process, and he has finally gotten through to me. I did lose more weight when I was tracking what I ate, and since I am taking my lunch to work, that makes it even easier.

I know that this isn't nearly as entertaining as his writing, but you try being funny on command with muscle relaxants in you! Go critique someone else! lol =^..^=

    Definitely NOT my dogs! My cats would eat them! We had a whippet, but sadly she is not with us any more, and I think the kitty-girls would prefer we adopt another quiet dog big enough for them to lay on. We are going to go to the pound to check out an older one-eyed boxer we met at TFG's last race while ACC was out there.

    And I want to thank EVERYONE for being so darned supportive! It really means a lot to me.

    Actually I thought your blog was amusing. (The part about don't worry the cat is okay). The animals are always fine when you trip over them, but in am effort to avoid them we usually get hurt. lol

    But your husbands blogs are pretty amusing and inspiring, congrats to you both!!

    Take care Kathy

    Man, your list of injuries sounds like a day in my life. Hard to explain, yet painful and requires recovery time. Yikes.

    Congrats on those 10 pounds - woohoo! Keep up the fantastic work. Let SP and those fabulous tools work for ya. You go, girl!

    Cute animals, so glad the cat wasn't hurt! LOL!

    Tracking really makes all the difference to me - it's motivating and illuminating and really rather embarrassing some days, but it keeps me on my toes!

    It's so great that you're both in this together supporting each other. I'm trying to spread my Spark to my dearest too, and he's curious about it, so we shall see...

My husband lovingly supports me until I have a weak moment, then he runs and buys whatever I'm weak for!! LOL! Its an uphill battle here, and I get Cranky I hope your feeling better soon, and maybe you can ask your hubby to talk to my hubby? LOL! emoticon I'm lucky if I can get the man to go for a walk! Take care, Margaret
