Feeling Confident
Thursday, September 03, 2015      3 comments

It has been a long time since I was "here". But I am feeling motivated and happy. I finally found a concrete, scientifically-proven plan for me to get my weight down and improve my overall health. I have bought myself a cute mug to rem... Read more
Mid-week check-in
Tuesday, August 13, 2013      0 comments

I've had a busy week so far - that's good but I'm not finding enough time to check in to SparkPeople over the last few days... but I'm still being very conscious of my habits and sticking to my plans as much as possible. I'm looking forward... Read more
The Phone Call from my Future Self

My future self is very happy, fit, and enjoying her life very much. She has lost all of the weight that she wanted to and has kept it off! She has that joyful spring in her step. She still walks to work everyday and enjoys more social time and d... Read more
Renewed Effort
Sunday, August 04, 2013      1 comments

I have to be honest with myself, I can make better choices and exercise more regularly than I have been. I need to reassess my meal planning and take more advantage of SparkPeople's meal ideas rather than just tracking my own food choices. ... Read more
Shake it Up
Friday, July 26, 2013      1 comments

I just love dancing to Latin rhythms, especially at home... that's why I like Zumba so much. This week, I plan to do some zumba-ing several times. This should improve my results and improve my mood at the same time. :)... Read more
Low Ferritin, Low Energy?
Thursday, July 25, 2013      0 comments

I was told today that my ferritin is low. I suppose this might explain why I have low energy (that among other things). I've been prescribed an iron supplement but in general my diet is NOT low in iron-rich foods. I regularly eat spinach, l... Read more
Hmmm.... Nutrition Feedback Report
Tuesday, July 23, 2013      6 comments

So, it seems that I tend to stick to my calorie range but that my protein seems to be always near the low end of the recommendation. Fat tends to always be closer to the higher end (or excessive) and carbs vary from slightly low to quite high. ... Read more
Re: Pushups are Hard!!!
Saturday, July 20, 2013      2 comments

So, today I did my pushups in the morning, about 2 1/2 hours after breakfast, and I did super! Back on track with 24 pushups! I think I was low on energy and tired the last couple of times I tried to finish the training session. Now I know! ... Read more
A good day...
Thursday, July 18, 2013      0 comments

Well, we had a rushed day, and a bit of an unhealthy lunch - but I stuck to my calories by eating a nice salad with greens, strawberries, almonds, and my favourite poppyseed dressing. Then, I had a glass of skim milk to get my protein up a bit. ... Read more
Pushups are hard!!!
Wednesday, July 17, 2013      2 comments

I've been following along with my pushup challenge, and am stuck at the same level for the last few days. Maybe I'm not resting enough between (every other day), or maybe I need to do them when I'm less hungry... Seems like time for some experim... Read more
Stress is Leaving Me...
Tuesday, July 16, 2013      2 comments

I'm finally feeling some relief from my stresses... My business is picking up a bit at last... if only temporarily, I don't mind. I've had some very productive times at the office and I've been making progress with my fitness. I joined the ... Read more
Everything in Moderation
Monday, July 15, 2013      2 comments

I really liked my SparkCoach session this morning. I can recognize how expecting perfection in the past has led me to frustration and giving up on my weight loss plan prematurely. This time around, I'm giving myself more time, accepting my slip... Read more
Feels like a good day for a 5K training session!
Saturday, July 13, 2013      3 comments

I took one of the quizzes "What kind of Runner are You?" - and I learned that I would benefit from joining a training group or a running program. I've done both before and really enjoyed it - and it prepared me for my first 10K race! I've g... Read more
Wrong turn but make a U-turn
Friday, July 12, 2013      3 comments

I went a bit overboard with cravings last night - I was tired and frustrated and worried about the business and I just ate whatever came close to me - and I didn't care to stop. Eating that way didn't make me feel better at all. I am going ... Read more
Tired but still going
Tuesday, July 09, 2013      2 comments

I am exhausted - I'm trying very hard (and doing well) with my exercise, but my nutrition hasn't been ideal. I have a lot of conflicting feelings about my new business and lots of worry... and my lack of weight loss on the scale is frustrating m... Read more
