Christmas Gifts
Tuesday, December 22, 2009      3 comments

I hope I don't sound like a Scrooge, but I don't like the exchange of meaningless gifts with people I barely know, like at work. I love giving things to the people I love and think carefully about what would bring them joy, but I don't like Sec... Read more

Off Track
Friday, December 18, 2009      6 comments

I definitely learned that I need to track my food and exercise last week. When I don't track I underestimate my intake. I was way above my calories a couple of days last week and I feel the difference. The scale has me up 2 which I know is no... Read more
Stressssssful Week
Thursday, December 17, 2009      1 comments

It's been a stressful week. Not being able to access Spark People except for a few minutes at work and on my husband's old, old, slow, slow computer. All I could do was the absolute essentials - what I ate and my exercise. I often didn't get ... Read more

I had lunch with a group of people at work as a potluck. I brought a loaf of the SP Banana Nut Bread (once again!). I ate small amounts of the most apporopriate things I could find at the pot luck and tried very hard to be careful. When I we... Read more

I can't believe how cold it is. I don't know if losing 40 pounds has made me feel the cold more, but I am freezing. I just want to sit in front of the fire in my snugglie and stay warm. I don't want to go out there and go to work. Oh, well, ... Read more

I tried Jillian Michaels Boost Metabolism DVD on Exercise TV yesterday. Boy that was too much for me. I pulled my side and hurt my knee. This middle aged grannie is going back to Cardioke today. ... Read more
Consistency and Moderation Make my Day!
Monday, December 07, 2009      3 comments

I guess you do burn more calories in the cold because I did lose a pound last week. Yay me! I seem to be pretty consistent at having a 500 calorie daily deficit and that leads to a pound a week weight loss which is great for me. I think ... Read more

It was cold up in the mountains this weekend. It was 22 degrees F when we arrived Friday and 2 degrees F when we left today. Brrr. Our Vermont Castings stove kept us nice and cozy in the house when it was on but it was cold in the morning whe... Read more

I think I am finally well! 3 weeks of feeling lousy, but I'm back on track. I'm back on my daily asthma meds after several years of thinking I didn't need them. I sure don't want to go thru that again so I will follow MDs orders this time. H... Read more
Yoga Anyone?
Thursday, December 03, 2009      4 comments

I've been wanting to try some yoga to see if it will help my back a little and maybe help me sleep more than 6 hours a night (or less). I had tried it a few months ago and found it a little challenging, but I thought I'd give it another try. I... Read more

I'm having fun with food! Yesterday at lunch it was too cold to walk around the park so I went to the grocery store. I was looking for ground flaxseed to sprinkle on my cereal and oatmeal, but Safeway didn't have it so I went to the local natu... Read more

Last night when I got into bed, after a very good nutritional and calorie day, I began to crave...... Oh, I wanted some almonds, or some wheat bread with hummus, or even a big bowl of bran cereal with 1% milk. I just wanted something good.... ... Read more

I got thru Thanksgiving well. My asthma is almost back to normal. I got back into my strength training on Friday and my DH did it with me up at the cabin! I walked at least once every day although I couldn't walk my usual distance at altitude... Read more
Thankful for the Joy of Health

I've been with Spark for about 5 months, lost weight, increased my fitness and improved my attitude. I am so thankful I found this web site. Right before joining, I had been "trying" to lose weight for several months and wavered between 27... Read more
