After being sick last week, I feel ever so much better. This also means that I'm eating and exercising on a more regular schedule. So many things can set us back, but when something does, I try really hard to just jump back on the healthy living... Read more
Eating Out
Tuesday, April 23, 2013      0 comments

My son's birthday party Sat. night and last night's salad buffet at Bible study offered too many opportunities. I didn't do well Sat., but last night wasn't terrible. I need more help in managing the eating out.... Read more
Two Steps Forward, One Step Back
Thursday, April 18, 2013      0 comments

It's a funny journey I'm on. It seem to go forward, then back. I was at a 20-pound loss the other day, but am now at 19. This means I'm two pounds over what SP has me at for today. I didn't exercise yesterday because of overwhelming fatigue. I t... Read more

For me, after losing 13 or so pounds, my clothes are fitting better. I am down one size. I do have more energy. I have actually lost my craving for chocolate and sweets, although I admit I don't mind a treat once in a while. The good thing is th... Read more

Although I'm still coughing a little, I'm staying out of crowds (our grandchildren's floor hockey and indoor soccer games), but I do feel better. I just think that I might not be doing myself any favors by being around a lot of people....not qui... Read more
Goodbye, Flu, I Won't Miss You

I think it's gone. Oh, I'm still coughing a little. But the big news is that I exercised for the first time in nearly two weeks, and it felt good. I only did ten minutes, but I did both strength and cardio. I will get back into my routine. I am ... Read more
Hoping the Flu is Ending
Sunday, March 03, 2013      0 comments

Although I'm still coughing quite a bit, I don't feel quite as sick as I have for the past week. I'm thinking of doing a little exercise, yet at the same time I'm kind of afraid to. I don't know if my body is up to it. It's been a tough go,... Read more
The Flu

I've had the flu since Saturday night. We had taken our grandchildren to a basketball game, and it started with a stiff neck. I thought nothing of it. Later that night I had shaking chills and could not -- could NOT -- get warm. Sunday it was fu... Read more

Monday I did an online SP abs video and yesterday was sore in my upper legs in front and lower stomach (figure I must have done something right). I think I'm not quite ready for that sort of thing. So I skipped exercising yesterday since it was ... Read more
I Love SP

Tracking food and exercise is so important and it keeps me honest. I measure everything so as not to be tricked into thinking my portions are accurate. I prob would be way off if I tried to eyeball portions. I'm down 8.2 pounds in five week... Read more

Today I am back at my pre-Superbowl weight. I couldn't be happier. I had a Subway 6" veggie delight sandwich for supper, and it didn't put me over. What suggestions might you have for me? I came in low in carbs. I thought too many carbs in ... Read more
Oh, That Superbowl Party!
Monday, February 04, 2013      1 comments

Well, yeah, I ate. I'm 1.8 up this morning. But I won't despair because I know a lot of it is water weight due to salt. I had a good healthy breakfast, am planning a good lunch soon, and am back on track. I admit that what I ate tasted good, but... Read more
