A Happy Discovery!
Tuesday, November 24, 2009      5 comments

First of all, I had a good day on my program yesterday. I met 100% of my goals including reading my cards and giving myself that mental pep talk. I weigh 161 this morning. I'm hoping I can stay active and enough on my plan not to lose my down... Read more
One step forward...one step back?
Monday, November 23, 2009      4 comments

I did an OK job yesterday. Had some big successes but it wasn't perfect by any means. I arranged my goals to spell the word WATERR: W - water, obviously -- need 8 glasses. Check. A - Alcohol free. Yup, good on that one. T - Table. ... Read more
On a Roll
Sunday, November 22, 2009      2 comments

I had a pretty good day yesterday; I met MOST of my goals. If I were to grade myself it would be a "B". I went to the fitness center and did 45 minutes on the elliptical, 10 on the bike, and a 60 minute weight-lifting class. I'm feeling i... Read more
The Tyranny of the Scale
Saturday, November 21, 2009      4 comments

I had a good day yesterday and met all my goals. Instead of my usual Friday -- feeling like I "deserved" a day off and drinking wine and not exercising-- I shifted my mindset and decided I deserved a healthy day! I actually got on the tr... Read more
Friday - Great but Dangerous too!

Hi everyone, I'm glad to report I met all of my goals yesterday. I weigh 162 this morning. I rediscovered sparkstreaks and will work this weekend to set that up to meet my specific goals. Ironically, I was using that tool this summer... Read more
Sorting it out Part 2 (See ID_Vandal's Blog)
Thursday, November 19, 2009      3 comments

Like Vandal, I'm SO guilty of not working the Beck program very hard. I've been SAYING I want to lose more weight but my commitment has been half-hearted. That's not how I lost the first 20 pounds, and it's (apparently) not how I'm going to lo... Read more
Soul Searching
Wednesday, November 18, 2009      4 comments

I woke up about 2:30 this morning and couldn't go back to sleep. I used the time to really reflect on my weight-loss progress. The question basically is this: am I happy at 162-163-164? If so, I just need to call this thing a "success"... Read more
Feeling Groovy
Tuesday, November 17, 2009      3 comments

Boy that title really shows my age, doesn't it? BUT I MEAN I AM READY TO GET BACK IN THE GROOVE! We walked early this morning even though it was about 45 degrees and windy. I planned my meals and have stuck to the plan so far. ... Read more
Sick Today
Monday, November 16, 2009      4 comments

Hi Sparklers, I'm down 2 pounds this week, but still up from the all-time low. BUT, I'll take what I can get. I haven't felt well so didn't go to work today. I graded papers but didn't do much else. Didn't exercise. That's it f... Read more
Yes, I'm Alive!
Sunday, November 15, 2009      2 comments

I always feel guilty when I don't blog. Does everyone MISS ME? Do you wonder what's going on? Think maybe I got in a car accident? We'll, I am alive and well, but I just don't have much to say. Not doing well, but I have exercised every... Read more
The Choices are Ours to Make (& Other Random Thoughts)
Thursday, November 12, 2009      1 comments

I loved that phrase from the Motivation article Vandal sent me yesterday. That's just been ricocheting around in my head all day. I had another good day so I am on a roll. The good choices were mine to make and I made 'em! During t... Read more
!!MOTIVATION!!
Wednesday, November 11, 2009      4 comments

Vandal sent me a lilnk to a Spark article about motivation today; he probably sent it to his thousands of readers as well. BUT -- it was absolutely SPOT ON for me. I worked late. I didn't eat a lot today and I was tired and cranky. On my... Read more
"Normal" Day
Tuesday, November 10, 2009      5 comments

Hi Everyone, My coworker said, "Today seems like the first NORMAL DAY we've had around here in weeks." I had to agree! Things have really calmed down into the normal busy and I could NOT be happier. Finally, time for **me**. I'm ... Read more
Excited about Monday!
Monday, November 09, 2009      5 comments

Hi everyone, It is 6:10 am and I am raring to go! I got on the scale and I gained, but I already told you about that and I'm good with it. No sense beating myself up for choices that have already come and gone. The way I see it, I've got... Read more

Boy, that title really lost something in translation! TC and I finished the half marathon with a time of 3 hours, 32 minutes! That's 13.1 miles at a pace of 16 minutes, 13 seconds per mile!!! It actually was fairly easy (until mile 10... Read more
