Putting the Scale in Perspective
Wednesday, February 13, 2013      14 comments

Just when I decided my weight is my top fitness priority for now, my scale decides to mess around and play with me! Earlier this week it seemed to be functioning. It said 128.2 yesterday, the day before 129.6, and the day before that -- when I'd... Read more
My Orchid is Blooming! and the Scale is Looking Better!!
Tuesday, February 12, 2013      20 comments

Scale was at 128.2 this morn, a whole lot better than the 129.6 yesterday or the 130.0 the day before, after the night of the slip. I do think that if I could give up those occasional slips I would weigh just what I want to weigh. However, focus... Read more

I'm embarrassed to say it, but I blew it yesterday. I had had a great eating and exercising day. I ran 12 miles with my Galloway group. I ate well, right at the top of my calorie range. Then I went to bed and couldn't sleep. I felt hungry and th... Read more

They finally posted the 5K photos from the Rotary Twilight 5K eight days ago. On the day of this 5K I was too sore to run hard, so stayed with my nephew to pace him. He is a beginning runner and a newly diagnosed diabetic who is being pretty su... Read more

Yesterday I went to the eye doctor. I hadn't been in many years and I knew I was overdue. No cataracts, no glaucoma, no macular degeneration - my eyes are looking good and healthy. My prescription hasn't changed now in more than 5 years, althoug... Read more
Almost Creole
Thursday, February 07, 2013      14 comments

I know creole is suppose to have onion, bell peppers, celery and tomatoes. But I didn't have any onion yesterday, so I decided to improvise. I had fresh garlic and big, fibrous carrots. I had red, orange and green bell peppers, a couple stalks o... Read more
Did I Really Do a Bench Press?
Wednesday, February 06, 2013      26 comments

Yesterday, would you believe, I bench pressed 150 pounds? I did!! I did it during my third personal training session. It was the first time in my life I was ever "spotted." My trainer said if I ever do it without him to make sure the supporter g... Read more

Not So Intuitive
Sunday, February 03, 2013      16 comments

Today's SparkCoach challenge is to eat mindfully and intuitively, not relying on the clock to know when to eat but on your body. I think of intuitive eating as not involving tracking and measuring food, but I was unclear whether I was to track a... Read more

Water, Water Everywhere! and Other Challenges
Wednesday, January 30, 2013      18 comments

Yesterday's SparkCoach challenge was to carry a water bottle with you all day. It didn't specifically state you had to drink it, just carry it. Well, I did it and was surprised that I drank even more water than usual and was really surprised tha... Read more
