Saturday, August 29, 2009      0 comments

Today had some great surprise opportunities for exercise - first was my son's soccer lesson. It was parents day and initially, JP said he didn't want me in there, but the coach had all the kids call in all the parents, so I was able to play soc... Read more
Tracking at the Fair
Friday, August 28, 2009      1 comments

So we went to the Fair today and I wasn't sure how to track - seriously, it's not like you can just pull up Fair food - although I think I found a reasonably healthy option in a veggie gyro. Then tracking 4 hours of "walking" - which I think re... Read more

Next week will be my one month marker on SP. The last two weeks have seen a definite increase in my exercise routine - getting out for walks most days and if not, trying to fit in other exercise. The food tracking thing has become easier over ... Read more
I'm a food snob...

But that's okay by me. We had an lunch meeting and I brought my own food as planned because I don't like lunchmeat. Sure enough, I was asked why I wasn't joining the line and I simply said that I don't eat that. I explained that I don't eat m... Read more
Not as bad as feared...

I wasn't sure about exercise today - I stayed up too late last night watching Iron Man. I tried to only watch half of it, but I enjoyed it too much! When it was time to get up this morning, I fell back asleep and when I finally crawled out of ... Read more
Today was a bit rough around the edges...

Two major tantrums later, I think JP is ready for bed. I had a list of things to do today, managed to get the shopping done - didn't have much choice on that, especially if I wanted to eat tomorrow! He was feeling well enough to go to the park... Read more
The "Burrito Roll"...
Saturday, August 22, 2009      2 comments

I found out today that my son likes to call the extra stomach rolls "Burrito rolls" - and let's face it, they are the size of a grande burrito! It adds a bit of humor to my weight loss journey. He's looking forward to the day when the roll is ... Read more

My son is not feeling well, so I'm staying at home. Not really inclined to exercise today either, knowing full well that I'll be doing a lot of walking tomorrow. A day of rest is a good thing. I did do my pilates this morning, I may do some c... Read more
Pedometer update - and many miles to go...
Thursday, August 20, 2009      0 comments

Well, turns out I only walked 2.89 miles today - no where near the 4 miles/10,000 steps recommended. And this was with my newly added lunch time walk AND 2 hours walking around at the park for our annual company picnic. Unfortunately, it turns... Read more
I bought my first pedometer.

After all, how else will I know if I'm hitting 10,000 steps a day? It will be interesting to see how close or far I am, now that I'm taking walks at lunch every day. Still have to figure out what to do when it starts raining - I don't mind wal... Read more

Someday I'll be able to go for a walk after dinner without having an argument with my son about him wanting to do something else he earlier said no to. Someday we'll be able to make our evening plans and stick to them. Someday we'll be able to... Read more

I don't think grazing is for me...that's how I ended up eating today and it left me feeling hungry all day at work! I seem to feel better is I can sit down to a substantial meal 3 times a day rather than eating here and there and never quite fi... Read more

Well, it's been a busy weekend, and it's only Sunday morning! Today's goals include Mass, Lector Training, grocery shopping, food prep, laundry, trip to the park and rearrange my room. The way it's set up now, I don't have enough room to exerc... Read more

It started off jam pack full of stuff to do - soccer, Touch a Truck downtown, playdate in the park, grocery shopping, Dancing in the Street and ending with our Holy Hour at church. However, after the playdate, I think we were both pretty tucker... Read more

Went for a walk today at lunch and glad I'm did - not long after that it started raining like crazy! If I hadn't done it then, I know I wouldn't be going out after dinner for a walk (as much as I love the NW, I need to get over my aversion to w... Read more
