Made it through a Saturday
Sunday, June 17, 2007      0 comments

Saturdays are usually my hard time because I sit around and watch Little League baseball all day, snacking on sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and whatever else is available. Todays games were both close by so I only had a small amount of beef je... Read more
Been about 2 weeks
Thursday, June 14, 2007      0 comments

I've been doing this about 2 weeks. It is very addicting. I'm fascinated by numbers anyway so to see the calories in and calories out works for me. I've been measuring my portion sizes for the last few days and I'm not really surprised by any... Read more
Dusting off the scale
Tuesday, June 12, 2007      0 comments

I dusted off the scale I bought a while back. It is a very valuable tool when your trying to be more precise about serving sizes. I'm going to be diligent about portion sizes until I get a handle on what they look like by sight. So far I don'... Read more

Now that I've got your attention here goes my daily blog. Did really well calorie wise today. I started my second phase of the sparkpeople plan. Now I am going to measure my portion sizes. I am already fairly assured that there is where my... Read more
I'm in Little League hell

I just got back from a little league baseball tournament that my 12 year old plays in. I got to looking at my calorie intakes for the week and noticed a significant spike on the weekends. That's due to those weekend baseball double headers. I... Read more
Rainy day in Utah

It was a very rainy day today. It rained over 2 inches which is substantial here in the desert. I didn't go into work but got a lot of stuff done here at home. Tomorrow I'm going to go running. Apparently I'm not the only one who wants a run... Read more
Need to try running in a skirt
Wednesday, June 06, 2007      0 comments

I have decided I'm going to buy one of those running skirts with the built in shorts underneath. It gets too hot to run in my capri length running tights in the summer and my thighs are just too close together to wear shorts. I have this phobi... Read more
Pizza night
Tuesday, June 05, 2007      0 comments

Had pizza tonight. I knew that it was fattening but I still did it. Something is eating my basil. I'm pretty sure its earwigs so I put some beer traps out tonight. Not the best use of perfectly good beer but I hope it does some good. I wa... Read more

Went on an hour bike ride today. Boy my legs felt like two cement trees. I'm going to have to take a break tomorrow. I haven't counted my calories for today yet, I'm afraid to start tallying up those numbers, it's not going to be pretty. App... Read more

It's very alarming to see how many calories I ate today. I was out in the sun all day watching my son play baseball. I need to bring some knitting to occupy my hands because those darned animal crackers are too good. I did have a great run th... Read more
It's my Friday!

I've been thinking that it's harder for people who exercise regularly and mostly eat right to lose weight than people starting from square one. I'm sure I'll get a lot of folks disagreeing with me but I stand by what I think. I wish I could j... Read more
This place is addicting
Wednesday, May 30, 2007      0 comments

Today I ate some m &m's that my 12 year old son bought me at the store. They tasted extra sweet coming from him. I ran outside for the first time in a looooong time. I completely forgot how amped I get after a run. The treadmill just does't ... Read more
Today is the day....

Today is the day to get serious about my weight. I've always been in good shape and never had to worry about my diet. But now that I'm in my late 40's I can't seem to stop gaining weight. No matter what I do, 15 lbs. has crept up on me, seem... Read more
