Never would have thought I'd really meet the step goal I set for myself so consistently. As a result, I'm much more active, feel better and am (finally!) seeing some changes in the dimensions. I'm ALMOST at the first interim weight goal I set,... Read more
The Weather Wins

Not unexpectedly, very wintry weather rolled through Billings while I was there at a conference. Ended up staying a different place every night. Car got frozen. Roads were slicker than slick. Walking was in tiny baby steps, and that was with... Read more

Well, I seem to have left the weight plateau. I'm actually starting to see some downward movement in the scale. At the same time, by fasting blood sugar is going up. Now to go through the tedious process of figuring out what I've been eating ... Read more

This has been a tough week, what with feeling lousy and having way too much to do in a short period of time. Then I took control and YOWZAH! did I get a lot done! Despite my intentions, I've managed to put in 4-5x the 10 minutes of workout tim... Read more
Snow and Cold
Saturday, February 08, 2014      0 comments

Despite myself, I actually worked out before starting my day. Then, because of the snow, I shoveled the driveway and the deck. It was cold enough that the snow was very light and dry, so I got to do a whole lot extra steps to actually get thin... Read more

It's cold. It's snowing. It's winter! The office is cold, so I've been walking in place to stay a bit warmer. I'll get to 5000 steps, anyway!... Read more

Sun came out so there's new energy today. It's brilliant against the snow. Started out with 55 minutes - hard work but I'm not as winded. This month will focus on keeping within the nutrition guidelines at least 5 days a week. Just track... Read more

January 25 - Tough Week

Had some kind of intestinal bug so cut back - BUT DIDN'T QUIT - on exercise (and food). It was frustrating in some respects, but somehow it didn't bother me as much as it normally would. Guess I needed the break. Today is gorgeous! New sno... Read more

It's Thursday, the moon was full and not yet set when I went in to work - early. The days are definitely getting longer - it wasn't full dark when I left work. Starting to develop a new routine, and it shows. I'm actually looking for ways... Read more

Weight's definitely been up and down this week. Sure am glad I decided not to track on a daily basis! What I'm most pleased about is I am keeping up on the daily activity. Although I haven't always been able to get to the 5000 step mark, I'm ... Read more
Week 1 Down

I started with Spark People on January 5 because I was looking for a paper tracker. What I found was so much better! There's a huge amount of information available through the site, the tracking is much easier than anything else I've run into,... Read more
