Day 117. Old men and parking lots
Friday, June 05, 2015      9 comments

Not original thought, parking in the spot furthest from the door, I've started doing it again. Have to overcome the habit of, like everyone else, attempting to get as close as possible. Just keep reminding myself my 15 year old Chrysler Minniv... Read more
Day 110. Calculations pretty worthless
Friday, May 29, 2015      5 comments

Come to sparkpeople a lot. I'm retired so time I want an issue and I think it helps keep me focused on establishing a healthy lifestyle. Tracking my nutrition, reading blogs, learning, and writing in the blog all help. I have been tracking fo... Read more
Day 103. I hated tracking
Friday, May 22, 2015      0 comments

I'm lucky. When I got my spark I was recovering from pneumonia so I had hours of bed rest where I could learn how to track nutrition. I hated it, thought I misunderstood something basic, couldn't possibly so difficult. It was that difficult, ... Read more

Wednesday, May 20, 2015      2 comments

Not. Everything fine here. Weathers beautiful. Running more ( no details) eating less. Haven't been very hungry for a week or so. Ate Cheetos last night! Maybe needed a near death experience! Survived, didn't even track enough to get ... Read more
Day 99. Been cloudy
Monday, May 18, 2015      2 comments

Ran a lot more Friday. Didn't plan it but felt really good walking and I found a nice little flat place where I could run so I took advantage. I'm strong enough and light enough now I can do the c25k program again but I'm holding off for a few... Read more
Day 96.

Yesterday's business meetings were brutal (yes I know I'm retired) until I broke off to walk and shop. Bought every fruit and vegetable I could conceive I might eat. Having beautiful healthy foods works every time. Two years ago, when I ... Read more
Day 95 I've been doing a poor job of purchasing
Thursday, May 14, 2015      1 comments

My diet is all raw fruits and vegetables EXCEPT a little fish or chicken for protein ands my food sins. Could do without the protein but don't think it wise. Could do without the food sins but it's more fun to live in the same world with other... Read more
Day 94. Binged last night
Wednesday, May 13, 2015      1 comments

Ate so much before going to bed I was sick. Don't think I'll do it again real soon. Have no idea why. Total for the day 1785 calories 350 below my bmr without accounting for the 13,200 steps. Strange.... Read more
Day 92 appetite has disappeared
Monday, May 11, 2015      1 comments

Jogged a few yards today. I've discovered my walks are more pleasant and last much longer when I start and walk flat ground for half a mile before even the smallest hill. Last week I was very concern because walks were becoming more difficult,... Read more
Day 90 odd week

Appetite hasn't been present all week. Intake has been 1000 calories below target since Sunday. Been to busy too prepare my food and set to enjoy. Tonight, when I had time to prepare and sat to eat I had no appetite. Strange. Been in non ... Read more
Day 87 all systems go
Wednesday, May 06, 2015      2 comments

I'm comfortable and confident. It's been a great week. Last time I reduced I got to somewhere around 180. Then I lost it. As I was reading in a blog today I had great expectations, too great I'm afraid. I did feel better. It was wonderful ... Read more
Day 86. Skinny day
Tuesday, May 05, 2015      2 comments

So I wasn't feeling so hot because I can't seem to get into the next size trousers I've been trying on for three weeks. Decided to go backwards and wear the ones I was wearing when I started February 6. BINGO! That did it. :). No way could I... Read more
Day 84
Saturday, May 02, 2015      4 comments

Seem to have settled into a diet of between 1200 and 1800 calories a day. Not pleased to eating fish or shrimp everyday but can't get excited about sprouts either. Maybe I'll give quinoa a try. Don't know exactly where my weight is (las... Read more
Day 83 nothing to report
Friday, May 01, 2015      4 comments

100% raw vegan didn't last long, five days and I was hungry. Had a couple of little binges in the last week but nothing big enough to get me over my minimum calorie goal. One of the things I have learned is to not blame diet for everythi... Read more
Day 75
Thursday, April 23, 2015      3 comments

Monday I was explaining, in a letter to a new member, all the benefits of being 100% raw vegan. As I went on and on it occurred to me how much I had enjoyed it. Have been having fish, chicken breast or shrimp for protein. None since Monday.... Read more
