I'm starting over, again, today. I'm going to break my goals into smaller ones. My first goal is to get to 166 by 7 September. I will be unable to weigh myself for a few weeks after that date, but when I'm able again, I will set another small... Read more

Between one thing and another, after sometime in October, I just wasn't consistent with SP. However, I'm starting again, today. I'm going to reset my goals and see how things go from here on out.... Read more

I'm sick of being sick. I did so well, last week, but this week isn't going to be a good workout week. I went to bed nauseated and with a migraine on Sunday night, and had a lot of trouble waking up on Monday. I couldn't wake up, most of ... Read more

Well, I made it to the pool every weekday, last week, and I also did my C25K MWF. I'm going to start strength training again next week on Thursday, and I've signed up for some personal training sessions so that I can become more time-efficient ... Read more

Well, not completely, but with the new week, I've reset my SparkStreaks and I'm starting to swim and log again. I'm hoping the recent spate of migraines is over with, and regardless of the amount of work I have to do, I want to get my morning s... Read more

I haven't been tracking, and although I swam last week, and did one day of C25K and one day of strength, I haven't done anything this week. I'm in the middle of a LOT of project work, right now, and it's eating all my waking hours up. But I wi... Read more
On track with tracking, not so much with exercise...

Life is once again getting in the way of exercise. More specifically, migraines are getting in the way. Last week, I had a mild headache-phase migraine for three days, followed by almost a week of postdrome, which consisted of extreme fati... Read more

I had a good vacation. It wasn't long enough, but are they ever? I didn't go overboard on junky food while I was gone, and we did a lot of walking and some playing in the Gulf. I've reset most of my streaks and I'm ready to get back i... Read more
Official tracking vacation starts TODAY!

I'll be doing no tracking until 12 September, when I go back to work. I'm sure I'll be swimming and eating good-for-me food, but I won't worry about tracking it or getting on SparkPeople while I'm on vacation. I kind of hate to break my 11... Read more

Next week, W and I will be going to Florida for vacation for 5 days. I don't plan on tracking food or exercise during that time, but that's ok. This week, because I have a lot to do to get ready for our trip, and have a couple of projects ... Read more

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to do what I want to do, exercise-wise, for the past two weeks. I've been so busy with work outside of work, that I haven't been able to do my strength training since the week before last, and last night, I mi... Read more

I was not able to do my strength training last week, and won't be able to for the next few days because I'm swamped with work. BUT, I'll get back to it no later than next Tuesday. I'm still keeping up with the swims and the C25K. Saturday... Read more
