Just by not binge eating part 2
Wednesday, November 27, 2013      3 comments

It's working. It's not lightning fast or anything, but it is working. At my age (50) I don't lose weight fast. A few years back I'd have been able to drop 5lb in a weekend by eating right. But, alas, those days are past. Now it takes longer. ... Read more
Just by not binge eating...

Just by not binge eating, I can lose 50 lb in 1 year. Yes, seriously. If I change nothing else in my life - not moving more, not eating less at meals, just not binge eating, I can lose 50 lb in a year's time. What's that you say? How? Well... Read more
Fat Thighs and Ball Chair
Tuesday, September 11, 2012      9 comments

Just so everyone knows, fat thighs, shorts, and ball chair (office type chair with stability ball rather than seat platform) are NOT a good blend. I think I may have left behind a half layer of skin so far. Yeouch. Solution? Lose the fat! O... Read more

I get SO much done when I don't Spark. I mean around my house, making appointments, getting out to do things, exercising, BUT it also contributes to a big BUTT I may get more done, but then I lose focus on my eating journey. I specify eating... Read more
Update on the "feels good" strategy
Monday, August 20, 2012      8 comments

Yesterday was busy, unexpectedly busy. At the last minute we decided to have a family outing and for us (with the special needs child) that is no small feat. Anyway, I had to be more spontaneous and that carries it's own stress. Then when we arr... Read more
"feel good" far
Saturday, August 18, 2012      5 comments

I can say that "if it feels good, the mind will keep telling us to do it" worked for me all day yesterday but in a way I didn't expect in addition to the way I expected. What I didn't expect: When I started acknowledging with those words "h... Read more

...our minds will tell us to keep doing it. This is what I'm beginning to think about nighttime eating. So, I'm going to try a little experiment today. As the day goes on, whenever something goes right, I'm going to try to stop and tell mys... Read more
wasting time
Friday, August 17, 2012      4 comments

For Sparkcoach I'm supposed to blog about how I waste time. I'd have to say my worst time waste is being online. But is it? A waste, I mean? I have so little contact with the outside world that maybe this is my happy hour. I moved away from all... Read more
I want I want I want

This may be a boring blog - feel free to skip over it. It's just a running list of the things I want in life that I have been sabotaging in the depths of my pantry every night. I want to: - buy a cute dress - feel sexy - have enough e... Read more
out of the cannon, into the pantry (oh dear)
Friday, August 03, 2012      6 comments

Ok, so I guess my inner brat was unhappy with ending fitweek with a bang. Or maybe just unhappy about it ending. And so I took my pouty arse to the pantry to...what? I don't even know. Why did I binge eat for so many days? No, wait, don't answer... Read more
Ending Fitweek with a Bang
Friday, July 27, 2012      4 comments

Or more like a bike ride. Today I had an hour with my trainer - lots of strength training, and a little boxing at the end. Then a bike ride to try again to like cycling. It's ok. It's my husband's passion, and my son just learned to ride without... Read more
The Universe handed me a "day off" today
Friday, July 27, 2012      3 comments

And I made the best of it. My body is still very sore, but I was going to go through with my planned activities except that they all got cancelled by others. So I decided to shop all day long, keep moving all day, just go go go. I went to about ... Read more
Oooooh, my legs!
Thursday, July 26, 2012      10 comments

So fitweek is hard. Yeah. My legs, glutes to calves, quads to shins, no make that down to toes, all hate me. They must b/c they're screaming at me. Today was FUN but tough. 2 hours at the gym (1 kickboxing bookended with half hour cardio s... Read more
Plan C and D
Tuesday, July 24, 2012      5 comments

ok, all of today's plans got scrapped so I had to make new plans. It would have been so easy to give up, but I didn't. I made 2 new plans and did them. I walked a vicious hill in our neighborhood, then had lunch, then spent 2.5 hours at the gym ... Read more
Fitness Week begins
Monday, July 23, 2012      4 comments

For my birthday this year I decided I wanted a babysitter for 5 days in a row so I could have a fitness week (ok, it's just the weekdays). I wanted to try new things. Rock Climbing. Fencing. Rowing (in a sculling boat). And I wanted to have a ni... Read more
