It's all OK--a week in review
Saturday, February 06, 2010      2 comments

I'm up a pound and a half today, but I'm OK. We had Chinese last night because it's one of the few restaurants in my town. The food was good, I ate in moderation, and, most importantly, I had a good date with my husband. My eating was not per... Read more
Still here, but feeling drained
Friday, February 05, 2010      2 comments

Had a couple of "not so good" days, but I braved up and tracked, and I really only overshot my cals to a large extent on one day. So, that's positive. I've exercised more this week (due to lunch walks with Leslie Sansone), so that's good. ... Read more
No weight loss. Bummer.

I am EXACTLY the same, down to the ounce, as on 1/17 (the last time I weighed). It is TOM, so I'm hoping I'll lose my normal 2 lbs. of water weight and see a nice number on the scale later this week. I know, I know. It's not about the sca... Read more
Holding on to my sanity

Today has been rather craptastic. Besides weird work stuff, I'm just a little nervous and irritable, so I'm hiding in my office and eating lunch. I don't know what is going on with me, but I hate feeling this way. I feel like I want to run aw... Read more
Keep on...

I'm trying my very bestest to get into a good routine, not only with eating, but with sleep, fitness, and wellness. I'm doing OK, but still learning how not to let a change in plans derail me for days. I've got to let myself know that all is n... Read more
Tired and somewhat discouraged

A little bit blue today. I've not been on Spark for 2 days due to life. I think my eating was OK yesterday, but I felt sick and was travelling and didn't get veggies. The day before was OK, but surprise dinner at my Grandma's and I was workin... Read more
Tired and sick today with a cold, plus more low blood sugar

Yesterday was hard. I spent all day at my bio dad's funeral. I did not grow up with him or know him very well, but it was still sad and stressful. I have a half-brother and his whole family I'm getting to know, so, while they were very welcom... Read more
Had to eat more last night...shaky. Do I need to change plan?
Monday, January 25, 2010      2 comments

I was right in my ideal calorie intake range yesterday. But then, last night, I had a wave of hungry pass over me. This wasn't the "I need a snack" variety. I was actually shaky and my heart felt jittery (I'm 33 and have no health issues lik... Read more
Very tired

Day 2 on the Treadmill Desk, and I think I've done over 4 miles. I'm working on a paper, and it's easier to work that I thought it would be--but it's MUCH more tiring than I thought, too. I'm beat! Hopefully I can get a good 8-9 hours of slee... Read more
Virtual Walking Tour on the Treadmill Desk

I've decided to take a virtual trip from Kentucky to Washington (Seattle, actually) now that I have treadmill desk up and running. (What a great birthday present from my hubby!) I'm going to log my daily/weekly/monthly miles and try to do Goog... Read more
First Week, and a Very Successful Day
Friday, January 22, 2010      0 comments

I am now officially finishing a week with SparkPeople, and I find it amazing. Just knowing that I have goals and need to track water, fruits and veggies, and exercise, has made me WANT to do well--even if no one sees it but me. Today, I ha... Read more
Progress and ponderings

I got my copy of The Spark today and I'm really excited about it. I love the sparkpeople website, and it's really helping me keep my goals together. I think my problem is not motivation, but concentration. I'm pretty driven and interested in ... Read more

My last blog post didn't post. Maybe Firefox? Anyway, having a good Sunday. Church, food, baby's napping, and I'm catching up on some me time and online tasks. Hoping to find a treadmill soon for my treadmill desk. Went under ca... Read more

Well, it's happened like it always does--I've been exercising, tracking my food, being healthy all week, and my weekly weigh-in is higher. It's only .6 pounds. And I KNOW that I've been doing things right. I KNOW that my pants are looser.... Read more
Day 2--So Far, So Good!
Friday, January 15, 2010      0 comments

I'm over by 200 in calories today, but since I'm doing WW with this as well, my weigh in is tomorrow and I had flex points saved up to eat. I think it will be OK; in fact, maybe a slightly higher cal day will boost me a bit (I've been working o... Read more
