I Refuse to Be Lost Without My Tracker
Monday, July 09, 2018      15 comments

The band broke off my Garmin VivoSmart activity tracker. I think I can superglue it, but I haven't been to the store since it happened yesterday. Last evening I was laughing at myself. I usually get steps while I watch TV in the eve with my husb... Read more
Run with the Girls
Sunday, July 08, 2018      16 comments

This morning Natalie called me at sunrise to say she was awake and ready to run. She and I did about a 2 mile run-walk-run. I had hoped to do 4 miles with her, but she was dragging and said her back was hurting, so I didn't push her. Natalie and... Read more
I Am Not a Calculator

In the last 6 weeks I've lost just about 6 pounds. I actually started 19 days before that and had lost the bloat before I ever started the 100 Day Challenge, a low key challenge started by a great SparkFriend. The challenge really kicked me into... Read more

My FaceBook friends have already seen this one, but for you who haven't let me say that Senior Dance celebrated July the 4th on the 5th and it was a whole lot of fun. ... Read more
Target? Good Enough??
Thursday, July 05, 2018      15 comments

Yes, I am below my target weight of 129 with a 128.6 yesterday and today. Still processing it. Not sure what to say. Know the hard work of truly figuring out maintenance starts today. I started to say "the hard work of maintenance once and for a... Read more

Red White and Brew Preparations

I am really looking forward to meeting CLEE2830 at a time convenient for both of us. We will reschedule soon I hope. Today, though, I am focused on getting ready for Gwen's first race, the Firecracker 200, a 200 yard run. Kids small shirts ... Read more
I Really Messed Up This Time
Monday, July 02, 2018      15 comments

Yesterday I couldn't even bring myself to write what I did. Bet you are thinking it was a binge. That would be predictable based on my history, but no, I am at day 57 binge-free. I've been in my calorie range for 36 days in a row. I suspect this... Read more
Update on App
Saturday, June 30, 2018      14 comments

Still using app. Laptop is downloading a "critical update" that I hope solves the problem. Weight this morning at 5am: 129.2. Pretty soon I will get to 129.0 target. Smile. Got 2 nice compliments from people at Senior Dance who notic... Read more

My laptop computer is acting up; start menu and icons are not working. Access to SparkMail limited. Will keep trying. Can occasionally use DH's desktop... Read more

Yesterday was a griping blog -- complaining and excuse making. I complained about managing leftovers and I made excuses for using pre-packaged food that are less than optimal nutrition. Today's blog will be more results oriented. Not that ... Read more
Just Enough
Sunday, June 24, 2018      13 comments

Not wasting food. It's a good idea. Or is it? For me, it is a problem. If my plan calls for half a banana I choose something else, like blueberries that I can measure out just to the almost exact amount. I don't do half well. Sometimes I've froz... Read more
Still Celebrating!
Saturday, June 23, 2018      9 comments

I'm still celebrating my binge-free streak, now 48 days and counting! It is not enough to be at a normal weight; I want to eat like a normal person. From mid 1986-mid 1992 I had a very responsible job with a lot of employees. I simply told ... Read more

We are having a great day! The kids finished 4 days of dance camp this week and I loved their performances yesterday. Today they wanted to see some of th... Read more
Hooray!
Friday, June 22, 2018      11 comments

I almost posted this yesterday, but my day counting is not always precise, so I waited an extra day to announce, just to be sure. As of yesterday, I am pretty sure I broke my binge-free streak of 45 days. I now believe I am at 47 days and counti... Read more
