HI Friends! I've been away from Spark for a few months because life took over. Family health problems, work etc etc etc. I managed to maintain my weight and my sanity (for the most part!) by cutting back on have-tos, but I feel like I'm ready t... Read more

Wow, didn't realize it had been so long since I blogged. I've been logging and tracking but I've been crazy busy, two weeks of work travel so something's gotta give, I guess! I always have a hard time staying on track food-wise when i tr... Read more

I'm still in Florida, it's beautiful here, nice and warm. My husband was here over the weekend and we had fun. Now I'm at a conference and balancing that with keeping up with work - not complaining at all! Staying on track with consumptio... Read more

Today I am calmer than I have been all week, which makes sticking to my plan easier. On Monday my son was in a car accident, and while he is pretty much fine, it really threw me. His truck was totaled in the accident and seeing it was scary. Th... Read more

I'm up 1 and a half pounds this week, not surprising given that I struggled unsuccessfully to stay on track. Between stress and happy hours and increased exercise, I've been hungrier and less equipped to resist cravings. I'm giving myself ... Read more

Much better days yesterday and today! I got a good treadmill run in on a snow day yesterday, late in the day because I was so busy in the morning. And did ST with my trainer. Feeling strong and accomplished! And for the most part stuc... Read more
Terrible No Good Very Bad Rotten Day and a Picture
Wednesday, February 20, 2019      10 comments

Yesterday was a no good terrible very bad rotten day. And like a little kid, it would appear that I had more or less of a temper tantrum about it, the food-based equivalent of laying on the floor kicking and screaming. Too much angry consumption... Read more

I meditate to clear my mind and calm my soul. Sometimes I use a guided meditation but most often, I practice mindfulness meditation, which means simply trying to be present in the moment. Sounds so easy... All the things that flood into m... Read more

The new treadmill arrived yesterday but I ran outside because it was one of those unusual beautiful 60 degree days in February. Today it's grey and chilly, so it will be my first treadmill run. Will let you know how it goes! Very excited to get... Read more

Today I got on the scale and I was down almost another pound from yesterday, that must have been some workout! Sometimes it seems like there is no rhyme or reason to day to day weight loss, which is why I'd rather focus on trends. Still, i... Read more

Like I said on the Beck thread, a little off track this week with food, but doing well with exercise. Every day, whether good or bad, I keep coming back to those strategies that have worked for me before. Planning, tracking, reading my Bec... Read more
A Marie Kondo Kind of Weekend
Saturday, February 09, 2019      8 comments

I struggled to stay on track this week, only two days compliant with my plan. I had dinner with a friend and we didn't help each other stay on track as I had hoped, and another friend over another night and had an unplanned glass of wine. Last w... Read more
