I haven't posted a blog for a while because I am currently in my 11th week of pregnancy. I've been trying to stick to a healthy diet and keeping my steps up, but of course this is not the time to lose weight! So far, I haven't really gained any ... Read more
somedays, 10000 is a REALLY big number
Monday, March 01, 2010      1 comments

Yesterday, I had to really really push myself to get those 10000 steps. I woke up in the morning feeling crappy and nauseated (an occasional byproduct of my stomach disorder). Every time I stood up I felt worse -- I was so tempted to just lay ab... Read more
feeling hungry
Thursday, February 18, 2010      3 comments

The past few days I have wanted to eat everything in sight. Now this is bad for a normal person, but my gastroparesis means if I eat a little too much I get all sorts of horrible reflux and pain. I don't understand why I am so hungry. It's reall... Read more

I am getting excited about my walking streak. 10 days of >10000 steps! I'm not so sure my pedometer isn't overcounting me a bit some days, though. So, I'm looking at getting one of those fancy Omaron ones. My reward for keeping this up -- gettin... Read more

February 2nd is one day you don't want to be sunny. Imbolc in the Celtic tradition, Candlemas in the Christian, the poem goes: If Candlemas Day be fair and bright, Winter will have another flight, But if it be dark with clouds and rai... Read more
My stepping has inspired!
Monday, February 01, 2010      1 comments

My pedometer is a few years old and a little large, and rather noticable. People tend to ask me what it is when I wear it, and then I feel a little weird explaining sometimes. It's one of the reasons I stopped wearing it, but I didn't feel justi... Read more
10,000 steps
Friday, January 29, 2010      5 comments

Today I am starting a new goal. 10,000 steps/day. I have a pedometer that has been sitting without a battery in it for months. What's the point of having a pedometer if you don't use it? So, yesterday I bought a new battery, and today I begin. I... Read more
Do or do not, there is no try!
Thursday, January 28, 2010      4 comments

I'm done with trying. Trying implies a chance of failure. If you try, you give yourself the license to say when you don't succeed, "Well, at least I tried." What does that get you? It means you have to try again, and then if you fail again, you ... Read more
peeling fruit to stay sort of fit
Tuesday, January 26, 2010      3 comments

I really miss fresh fruits & veggies! I used to try so hard to eat veggies at every meal, but with GP, the number of different veggies I can eat is right now limited -- cooked carrots get real boring after a while. This morning we had group meet... Read more
I blogged it, so I did it!
Tuesday, January 19, 2010      5 comments

Yesterday, I blogged about how since I didn't walk in due to the weather, I was going to do a dance workout when I got home. I thought about it all day. And when I got home, I thought -- I need to make sure I work out because I said on Spark I w... Read more
Mother nature shakes it up

It is a nasty day out today, so my normal workout of walking to and from work was out. Sleet, freezing rain, hail, lots of snow on the ground. I did spend a good amount of time shoveling and clearing off my car, though -- that's a workout in it'... Read more

Can I lose weight?
Monday, January 11, 2010      5 comments

I lay down every night and put my arm across my belly, and honestly, it grosses me out. I don't think I look all that bad, but when I feel the fat in my stomach, I certainly don't feel very good about myself. But then I forget about it and do th... Read more
