...since I've been able to talk about a successful weekend!

We went away to a hockey tournament this past weekend, and I think I can declare it, for the most part, a success. I ate pretty well all weekend, managed to maintain my "no grain before dinner" both Friday and Saturday, which was a real accomplishment. Yesterday was not quite as good because we stopped for a quick breakfast on our trip home and there was really no "non-grain" option for breakfast, so not so much yesterday.

One thing I was SO unhappy about, on Saturday, between the kids' games we went to Plymouth, NH and walked around the downtown area because we had some time to kill. It was a good amount of walking, and when I got back to the hotel I checked my progress for the day on my Spark tracker and it seemed that it was not adequately positioned to pick up all the activity. So I re-positioned it and it began to register. When I got home and synched it to the computer, I figure I was right in what i thought happened. So I missed a whole lot of activity on Saturday that I actually did. Not that it matters a lot, I mean, I did the walking, so it will benefit me no matter what, but still, I hate not having accurate records!!

But today is another day, and I am back on track! Today is Ash Monday (the equivalent of Ash Wednesday, but we Maronite Cahtolics are on a bit of a different calendar, so our Lent begins today). So I am fasting until noon and then we are meatless today. Hoping that I can keep from eating too much for lunch, given that I am truly hungry right now (nothing like a little fasting to feel real hunger!) One tiny little moment at a time!

    I know how you feel when your tracker doesn't record everything. It's the same with my Body Media fit band some days. Glad that you had a great weekend! Here's to a great week!

    I read this yesterday, and it spoke to me about Lent:
    "Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it's holy ground."

    May your Lent be blessed and grace-FULL!

    Glad to hear that you had a great weekend for yourself and family.

    I know what you are talking about with the tracker, that happened to me too, so I try to remember to always have it flat and facing downward after putting on socks. You can always enter it in manually? I really like the tracker it does help keep me moving and taking walks.
