I did yoga twice this week, and I'm now taking a weekly dance class and taiko drumming which is surprisingly just as much of a workout as dancing. I even got in some dance practice while doing housework this morning. I have kept below 150 for ... Read more

I'm feeling very motivated today. Might be the excitement of seeing the scale nudge down to 147 this morning. I cleaned my gym shoes last week and have them with clothes in my car, ready to stop at the gym on the way home TODAY. I have a stre... Read more

It feels like a whole lifetime has passed since I wrote that last entry. Since then I've been through several surgeries - one of them major and several life-threatening - 50+ kidney stones - moved to a new state - had my body go completely hayw... Read more

This summer I've been doing well keeping below 118 but I inched above that this morning... time to get back to what I know I need to do! I am adding tracking water to my list too, because I think I'm ready to add another good thing and th... Read more

I want a trophy for July. I am going to earn the 250 fitness minutes trophy this month! It's far too hot in the evenings to go walking now, but if I go to bed early then I can get up early and maybe convince myself to go walking in the m... Read more

I didn't post the other day but I hit my goal weight! YESSSSSS! I rewarded myself by buying a pair of shorts and a skirt, neither of which I've been willing to wear until now. Even an extra 10-15 pounds looks like a lot when you're short and ... Read more

I ate breakfast for two days in a row, and tracked my food every day this week. Getting back to SparkPeople has been a lot easier than I expected! The iPhone app makes it easier. If I don't want to record my food right away I am trying to rem... Read more

This morning I dropped below 119! I regretfully have not been doing much exercise since starting school back up, but I am working hard to make good food choices. I am also now going to regular chiropractor appointments to get my neck fix... Read more

I have been mostly ignoring my Spark Page since moving. My eating and exercising habits are improving - I have lost a pound and a half - but I need to get back to tracking things. I feel so good physically when I make all my numbers, and I'm f... Read more
Doing well
Tuesday, June 10, 2008      1 comments

I am happy to discover that for the most part, it isn't my meals that throws my diet out of whack. It's the candy and pastries in between. Yesterday I had a massive craving for french fries. I have been doing well and had a pretty light b... Read more

Burgerville's website makes it very easy to find nutrition information. Kudos to them! I was REALLY craving their fish & chips yesterday, as that is a usual Monday habit for me, but I didn't want to eat that without knowing how many calories w... Read more

I forgot my workout clothes this morning. I came home with the intention to change clothes and go back, but noticed on the way past the apartment complex's workout room that it was empty (as usual). Why drive back to the gym at work when I can... Read more

It's 9:15pm. Time for wanting evening munchies. I am very proud of myself today for being within my calorie range and hitting almost all my other goals - for the first time since starting back on SP last week I might add - and I am determined ... Read more
