Going ok so far

Here I am, 4 days into my latest "do over'. I've done pretty well. I was tired last night and it was getting kind of late, but I drug myself onto the treadmill. It's a lot harder than it used to be since I've been working out less than sporadica... Read more

The weekend went pretty well. I didn't get as much exercise in as I'd like, but I did keep my eating under control. Not bad considering there are chips and other goodies in the house plus brownies and cheesecake from 2 of my kid's birthdays. I'm... Read more
Let's try this again

How many times have I started over? Too many to count. Most of my do overs lately have lasted less than a week. I spent the day shopping and prepping my food for the week. I've already got it in my tracker for tomorrow. If I can stick to it for ... Read more
Who me?

I have to say I'm feeling a little guilty today. I had an email this morning that said I've earned enough votes to have the spark motivator icon added to my page. I guess when you've been around for 4 years it's bound to happen! I've been feelin... Read more
My reasons why
Sunday, August 07, 2011      8 comments

I've been on Spark for 4 years today. I'd love to say I'm a success story. I was for the first 2 years I was here. I was within 4 lbs. of goal and now I'm nearly back to my highest weight. Although I don't consider myself a success (yet) in the ... Read more
My reward system
Saturday, August 06, 2011      4 comments

I did ok this week, but ate out a little too much and exercised too little. I have areas I can improve on in the next week, but I'm not going to beat myself up if I don't lose 20 lbs. in a month. I've tried that before and it doesn't stick. One ... Read more

Daily Goals
Sunday, July 31, 2011      4 comments

These are my current goals, which I plan to reevaluate after 4 weeks. I'll want to add more strength training, but my focus right now is to get nutrition under control and make exercise a habit again. I have to be realistic about the amount of t... Read more
Time to get real
Saturday, July 30, 2011      9 comments

As much as I hate to admit it, I've regained nearly all the weight I lost on Spark in 2008. It's taken time, and my plan was to lose 20 lbs. this summer, not gain a few more. I hurt my back in July and I let myself eat whatever since I couldn't ... Read more

Revamp of July goals
Friday, July 15, 2011      5 comments

I've been battling a pinched nerve in my back for 3 weeks. It was somewhat better a week ago and then we painted all weekend. Bad idea. That really aggravated the situation. I went to the dr. today and she prescribed muscle relaxers, pain meds, ... Read more
July Goals
Saturday, July 02, 2011      8 comments

I haven't done well the past 4 weeks. I was super busy in June teaching summer school, taking a math workshop, and another online class. I struggled to get into a good workout routine. July will be busy, but not quite so much so here are my mini... Read more
Just Tuesday

Day 3 of eating according to plan and nothing else. Workouts are going well too. I should find out tomorrow whether I have to pack my whole classroom and move again or if I'm staying where I'm at. If I have to move it's one more thing to add t... Read more
A good day all around
Monday, May 02, 2011      7 comments

My day started off with a 20 pt. spin on the wheel. I got a walk in at lunch and did ST after school. I needed it because I was so wound up after my meeting. Long story short is that when "stress inducing co worker" tried to throw me under th... Read more
