This morning, after 3.5 miles on the treadmill, I logged into SparkPeople for the 201st consecutive day. This is my longest login streak since I joined this site in 2008. (2008?! WOW!) But. In the nearly 7 months, have I lost any weig... Read more

Lessons Learned (And Boy News!)
Monday, August 26, 2013      5 comments

I started tracking my food again. I was accountable to myself. I behaved. I saw junk food and thought, "oh, man, that looks good, but I'd have to track it, so I guess I better not." I started losing weight again. I got busy. I stopped trac... Read more

Mid-Week Check-In ... German Edition
Wednesday, July 31, 2013      1 comments

I'm ashamed to admit it's Wednesday and this is the first day I've exercised. Yikes. My hotel is 2.8km away from the Brandenburg Gate, a nice 3+ mile roundtrip run. Instead, I went to the fitness center. My knees have been acting up and I grabbe... Read more

Saturday, July 27, 2013      2 comments

Question for anyone who may have synced a Fitbit to Spark - Is there a way to have it only sync certain things? Here's my problem: I like to track my actual exercise. 30 minutes on the treadmill, 30 minutes on the rower, squats, lunges... Read more

Food Analysis, Day 2

Yesterday, I switched from the regular nutrition tracker to the fancy new food-tracker-that-talks-to-you
r-exercise-tracker thing. Sure enough, it lowered my recommended daily calories from 1590-1940 down to 1300-1650. Honestly, that's a more... Read more

Yesterday, for the first time in *AGES* I actually tracked all my calories in the nutrition tracker. I think it was a good exercise for me, but I have reservations since I tend to obsess over the numbers instead of focusing on listening to my bo... Read more

This morning I went to a new doctor for a check-up. I honestly think this is the first time I've gone to a doctor for any reason other than (a) being sick as a dog or (b) in need of a prescription renewal. I just thought I should have a checkup.... Read more
