Tuesday, March 01, 2011      0 comments

Wow. I've been here for 6 months. And haven't posted a blog in more than 4 months. And I've slacked off on tracking foods and activity. I guess it happens. So, I kind of assessing the last 6 months and I'm coming up with strategies to conti... Read more

Logging goals
Tuesday, October 12, 2010      5 comments

I have just discovered that I can add any goals I want to my tracker. This is pretty neat, since I have a way to document when I accomplish a goal and to create streaks. I'm finding streaks can be pretty addictive. ... Read more
It is becoming a way of life!

I awoke at 2 am. I had been dreaming about logging foods. In a later dream, I was riding a bike without pedals (I realized upon waking it must have been a scooter). If I am dreaming about eating properly and logging it in and exercising, this mu... Read more

Work and play
Monday, September 20, 2010      2 comments

In my field - direct care - sometimes the line between work and play gets a bit blurry. I help adults with developmental disabilities live active, healthy lives. We go out to eat and make healthy choices (sometimes). I took one woman to a diner ... Read more
Nice weekend away
Sunday, September 12, 2010      0 comments

A friend and I drove to New Jersey to spend time with some friends. It was a nice party. Mostly, we talked and enjoyed each others' company. And I didn't overdo it on any one type of food. My calorie counts stayed where they should be! ... Read more
My motivation
Thursday, September 09, 2010      1 comments

We all have different motivations for getting fit/losing weight. For me, the weight has been slowly creeping up over the past 10 years. "Middle age spread," some would say. So, yeah, I could stand to lose a few pounds. But a bigger motivator for... Read more
