Ok. I plan to use this forum to work through my issues.
Challenge: I have been charting that I walk 30 min. per day. I walk in place when on the job but it's not 30 min.

Intentions: I will be truthful to myself about myself. I will only chart what I have completed.

Triumphs: I pushed myself to get up and get started. Picked up my beach dreses, had a pedicure, had my fruit and veggie smoothie, and now at the hair salon. YEAH

Makeover: I'm picking up my bananas and grapefruit for my new breakfast this weekend.

Changing my life one day at a time from the inside out. Remembering the basics, to set goals, plan,implement, then revise. The journey will be hard and easy but remember to HAVE FUN!!!

I've been out of town and away from a computer (technical difficulties) for quite a while, but now I'm back. Here are my current Diary entries:

Challenges: So many things have happened in the past two months that I'm having to figure out who I am, all over again. This isn't a bad thing, but it makes it hard to keep track of what I'm doing.

Intentions: I intend to keep my eye on the prize: my healthiest self!

Triumphs: I lost 1.5 pounds, according to my scale this morning.

Makeovers: I bought some new lilac perfume, that I just love!

Challenges: I'm having difficulty in finding time (and interest, to be honest) in using the Spark site for more than nutrition, fitness and weight tracking. It's not just this site, it's using the internet in general that seems to be drifting out of my range of interest. The Challenge is that I'm a team leader here, and I know that I'm not doing all I can to be the cheerleader, so that makes me feel kinda bad about myself.

Intentions: As long as I continue to focus on my own health and well-being, and keep using this site's tracking tools, I'm going to allow myself a little time away from being online so much. If anyone here really needs to contact me, they know how.

Triumphs: The fact that I even made it to post this today is a Triumph. Yay for me! ;-)

Makeovers: I bought a really cute tank top that looks very flattering on me.

Challenges: Once again I'm having trouble focusing because there is just so much going on. I'm not a big fan of having "too much on my plate" so to speak, so I'm going to have to either get more organized, or let go of some of the stuff I'm doing.

Intentions: Either way, it couldn't hurt to get a little more organized, so I'll begin there.

Triumphs: My weight is still dropping, albeit slowly, and I'm not really feeling like I'm dieting. I love that, because I don't believe in diets. However, I do believe in healthy eating habits, and this site is helping me to create and maintain them.

Makeovers: I've been standing up for myself a lot more lately, and that feels really good.

Challenges: I'm dealing with some pretty heavy stuff, in both career and family, so I'm in need of some major comfort. Fortunately, I haven't turned to food, but that doesn't mean I don't want to.

Intentions: I intend to stay focused on my health and well-being and assume that all will be well, very soon.

Triumphs: I bought a couple of three pound weights so I can get some extra exercise while I sit at my desk.

Makeovers: I got back into writing this online, and broke the resistance to logging my diary. (That even qualifies as a Triumph!!!)

Challenges: I'm at a standstill right now, where I can't really take any action so I'm not sure what to do. I don't like doing "nothing" so it's a little aggravating playing the "hurry up and wait" game.

Intentions: I intend to use this downtime to meditate and center myself, asking for guidance.

Triumphs: I've lost all of the weight I gained on my road trip and an extra 1.6 pounds on top of that. I weigh almost five pounds less now than I did when I finished writing my book (during which time I lost my first 50 pounds).

Makeovers: I colored my hair, gave the house a good cleaning and intend to smudge the house with white sage later today.

Today, my Diary entries are ...

Challenges: There is massive upheaval and turmoil in my family right now. I'm in a great deal of emotional pain, which is making it hard to care about tracking food and/or exercising.

Intentions: I intend to do it anyway, and have been successful so far today. At least I'll feel good about that.

Triumphs: I lost another 2.6 pounds overnight, which brings me almost back to where I started before I gained weight on my trip.

Makeovers: I haven't started on it yet, but I'm gathering all the pieces I need for a new vision board. That, in itself, is a massive undertaking. Making the board itself is another.

Challenges: I went out of town for an extended period of time and, even though I tried to stay as focused as possible, I now have to re-establish all of the good habits I had developed. Plus, I gained a few pounds, despite my best efforts. Now I have to relose them before I can pick up where I left off.

Intentions: I intend to not let this be a setback. I could easily get bummed out, but I refuse to do that.

Triumphs: I've already lost 1.3 pounds from the trip (probably water weight from sitting in a car for so long).

Makeovers: I did 30 minutes on the Wii and ate within my calorie range, both for the first time in over a week. Yay!

Challenges: Lately it's been a challenge to find the time to log on to the SparkPeople site and do the full rounds (blogs, forums, point gathering, etc.) I'm logging all my food and fitness stuff, so at least I'm doing that much, but I do get a huge benefit from the rest. It bothers me that I've been unable to be consistent with the things that are important to me.

Intentions: I intend to set aside an extra 10-15 minutes a day to dedicate to this site.

Triumphs: I'm really enjoying the way I'm eating. I've found plenty of snacky things that I like, and I'm not hungry most of the time, like I usually am when I "diet."

Makeovers: I'm not quite done yet, for the day, but by the time I go to bed the house will be cleaner.

Challenges: Things are definitely looking up! I don't feel particularly challenged today, and that's wonderful. But just so I have something to create an intention about, I'm mildly challenged because the weather is beginning to get warmer and I don't enjoy walking as much as I did a week ago.

Intentions: I intend to walk earlier in the day, before it gets hot. :-)

Triumphs: My weight is beginning to go back down, now that the stress is beginning to alleviate and I'm starting to feel better.

Makeovers: I bought a cute, inexpensive little wind chime for the kitchen window, and a new hair clip with lots of sparklies on it. Yay!

Challenges: I'm really trying to stay positive and focused, but my entire family is experiencing crises and turmoil. It's like everything that can go wrong, is going wrong.

Intentions: I am continuing to look for the light at the end of the tunnel.

Triumphs: I have NOT allowed these situations to be my excuse to binge or fall off track.

Makeovers: I got a lot of house cleaning done today, and repaired my tabletop fountain, which has been out of commission for a couple months.

Today, my Diary entries are ...

Challenges: The ugly situation at home continues, even though it has broken, like a fever or a popped zit ... healing hasn't happened yet, but the situation has peaked and now it's time to clean up the mess. Because I stood my ground and INSISTED that the right thing be done (in a sort of "what would Jesus do?" way), I am now getting the cold shoulder from the person I "pulled rank" on. This is extremely uncomfortable and I have gained yet ANOTHER pound, without increasing my food intake or decreasing my excercise.

Intentions: In spite of everything, I am endeavoring to stay balanced and not fall into a self-pity party.

Triumphs: I have NOT allowed this horrible situation to be my excuse to binge or fall off track.

Makeovers: I bought myself a really neat double-terminated quartz crystal from Tibet.

Challenges: There is a situation going on in my house that is very uncomfortable ... lots of tension. I've gained a pound, even though I'm not changing my diet or exercise for the worse.

Intentions: I intend to remember that I'm a grown up and I choose not to engage.

Triumphs: I think I have my computer fixed. At least, it's cooperating today, and that's good.

Makeovers: I took a whole, full blown shower, with hair washing and heavy conditioning, leg shaving, and all the other cleanup that goes with an overhaul (filed my nails, etc.)

Challenges: This isn't diet and exercise related, per se, but my computer is giving me MAJOR problems. This is really aggravating and is keeping me from doing things I would rather be doing, because I have to try to fix it, instead.

Intentions: I intend to stay focused on my progress, in spite of this time stealing snag.

Triumphs: I have lost a total of 10 pounds! I also found out this morning that I am listed in the top 150 of the 2700 competitors in Round One of the Next Top Spiritual Author competition. Round 1 ends on May 3, so I still have a lot of work to do, but it's good to know that what I'm doing is working!

Makeovers: I got a lot of house work done today and feel pretty good about that.

Challenges: I'm not used to being so busy and I'm having a hard time juggling everything I need to do with everything that I WANT to do. The things I want to do are being postponed, like posting on this site. I've found SparkPeople to be SO very helpful that I don't like not having enough time to do this every day.

Intentions: I intend to keep this on a front burner, and not let it slip away.

Triumphs: I did two great radio shows today and am starting to see some good feedback for the contest I'm in. I also found an extra half hour to exercise before my day even began.

Makeovers: I was in a REALLY grouchy mood this morning and wasn't sure I was going to be able to get in a good head space for my noon interview, but I managed to get myself centered and balanced. This affected the rest of my day so I wasn't grouchy anymore.

Challenges: I gained a pound, even though I'm sticking to my program. This is where Shape Shifting comes in. I realized that, as a result of some pretty sophomoric actions on the part of some people with whom I share my life, I'm feeling the need to withdraw into my shell, as if to say "I have nothing to do with this." I realized that this is part of why I'm retaining whatever it is that is causing the weight gain (it can't be fat, it must be water or whatever it is that makes me fluctuate like that).

Intentions: I intend to live my life with head held high, and stay removed from other people's pissing matches.

Triumphs: The fact that I recognized that I was gaining because of this retaining of excess energy was a pretty good triumph.

Makeovers: I got some sun today and look a little healthier!

I missed a couple of days because of holiday business, but I'm back now. Just cuz I didn't log this online doesn't mean I didn't stay focused, though. ;-)

Today, my Diary entries are ...

Challenges: I feel like I need some rest but I'm a prisoner to the "keep busy" mindset. If I don't have some project in front of me I feel like I'm slacking, even after a busy day. What ends up happening, when I don't take some time off, is that I start to do things half-assed, not really putting my all into them, but at least I can say I'm trying.

Intentions: I intend to go to bed early tonight and just get some good, long sleep.

Triumphs: All of my hard work is really paying off. I feel TERRIFIC and balanced.

Makeovers: I straightened my hair (a huge project, that I don't do often, but I look much better this way).

Challenges: I can't give a lot of detail, but someone in my neighborhood did something HUGE to negatively affect my living conditions. There is nothing I can do about it because he did nothing illegal and it is his property. I've spent the entire day attempting to not let it upset me.

Intentions: I intend to wait and watch for the silver lining.

Triumphs: I lost another .2 lbs., which is amazing because TOM just showed up today, and I always gain weight with that. So the fact that I lost anything is pretty cool.

Makeovers: I got my hair cut today.

Challenges: I'm in new territory and am not sure how to act. I think this is the best I've ever felt about myself (that's a challenge???) and I don't know what to do with myself. I guess the reason this is a challenge is cuz I don't want to screw it up with some sort of self-sabotage.

Intentions: I intend to work on being zen about my new condition. There is no decision to be made (other than moving forward) so I will make none.

Triumphs: I lost another .7 lbs.

Makeovers: I tried a new recipe. Still trying to decide if it's a keeper or not, but at least I tried something new.

Challenges: I've been noticing this for the past few days, but I'm glad I'm tracking it here or I might not have paid attention. I'm having a very hard time staying connected to what I'm working on. I'm doing SO WELL that I feel like I don't have to try any more. Like I want to take off my training wheels before I'm ready.

Intentions: I intend to leave my training wheels on for a little while longer. ;-)

Triumphs: I lost .2 lbs. Every little bit counts, eh? I'm also doing REALLY well on my exercise. My "next size down" pants, which were tight not too long ago, are now fitting perfectly.

Makeovers: I had a great reading today with one of my favorite psychics. I also changed the sheets on the bed, went for a ride on the bike, and got a lot done on a freelance project I've been procrastinating on.

Challenges: What an incredibly busy day! I guess that's my biggest challenge today. I'm getting very busy, in a really good way, but the people in my life aren't used to me being so unavailable. I need to find a happy balance. Maybe I need to get more organized, so I don't spend as much time trying to remember if I've left anything out.

Intentions: I intend to create a to-do list each day and look for other ways to get organized.

Triumphs: I lost another half pound! I also finished my pitch for the Next Top Spiritual Author Competition, and it turned out really nice. I think I have a good chance at making it, at least, to the finals.

Makeovers: I did 17 minutes on the Wii, and took a 1.5 mile walk.

OH MY GOD, I JUST WROTE A LONG, PERFECT DIARY ENTRY AND ACCIDENTLY DELETED IT! I'll have to start over apparently. Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Today, my Diary entries are ...

Challenges: I feel like I'm losing focus. Things are going well and I'm making progress, and that's when I find myself saying things like "Just this once..."

I think it will help me to make a committment to 15 minutes on the Wii Fit, whether I get any other exercise or not. I've been going for long walks, since the weather turned nice, but I don't feel like that is exercise. I need the visual input and instant feedback that I get from the Wii to make me feel like it counts. I don't know why it's that way, but at least I recognize it and am willing to work with it.

Intentions: I intend to get 15 minutes of Wii exercise every day.

Triumphs: I lost almost another pound!

Makeovers: I cleaned the bathroom today. This is huge, because the bathroom is the scene of a major power struggle between me and Jeff. As soon as I get it sparkling clean, he feels the need to shave, spill bird food and drop cigarette ashes everywhere. It's uncanny. So I refuse to clean the bathroom until I can't stand it anymore. Well, today I couldn't stand it anymore.

By the way, there are already shaving cream blobs in the sink. Amazing.

Today, my Diary entries are ...

Challenges: We went grocery shopping yesterday and now there is all this really yummy food in the fridge and cupboard. It's all Lisa-friendly food, so that's not an issue, but I sometimes get a little manic about eating food before it goes bad. I then begin to make unhealthy choices.

Intentions: I intend to stop and think before I eat, and just eat the fresh stuff first. The frozen stuff can wait.

Triumphs: I'm getting back my sense of when I am eating for hunger and/or out of boredom. That gets a little pushed under sometimes, when I get off track, but it's coming back. Also, I lost almost a pound since yesterday, but it's not enough to put it on my weight tracker here.

Makeovers: I did all the laundry today. Always a big accomplishment!

Challenges: I'm feeling a little irritated that I have to make time to make something healthy to eat, because I'd much rather be working on my project This is a dangerous mindset for me, because when I get like this, I make bad choices to save time and to express my anger that I have to be bothered with something like this (i.e. "Other people don't have to worry about their diet. Why should I have to?").

Intentions: I intend to take the time ... it REALLY doesn't take that long!

Triumphs: I got a HUGE amount of work done on my entry to the competition I've entered (the Next Top Spiritual Author competition) and uploaded the video.

Makeovers: I danced three songs on Wii Just Dance, and walked almost two miles.

I missed yesterday because I was overwhelmed with work and didn't stop until almost 11PM. But it was GOOD work, so it's not like I was suffering. ;-)

Today, my Diary entries are ...

Challenges: I'm beginning a very heavy duty project and am finding it hard to make time to pay attention to exercise and eating the way I want to. The time seems to just zoom by.

Intentions: I intend to fit in at least 30 minutes of Wii Fit, and track my food.

Triumphs: I'm stepping outside of my comfort zone and pushing my book to the next level!

Makeovers: Finally colored my hair this morning. I don't like coloring my hair, it's a pain in the butt, so I always wait until I just can't put it off anymore. Today I finally got off my butt and did it.

Today, my Diary entries are ...

Challenges: It's yet ANOTHER crappy day, weather-wise. It's cold and grey and I just want to stay in bed. I'm feeling very grouchy and unmotivated.

Intentions: I intend to find something I can do indoors that makes me feel better, like curl up with a good book, inside my favorite fuzzy fleece blanket.

Triumphs: I fixed something on my computer that was seriously vexing me!

Makeovers: Jeff cleaned his half of the office. Normally that wouldn't count as a makeover on my part, but he hasn't done this is a loooooooooong time, so now my cleaning my half of the office is that much more of a makeover because the whole thing looks nice now!

Challenges: I'm feeling kind of off balance (body/mind/spirit-wise). I'm not sure which facet of life is off, yet, but I'm feeling the way I always do when I know I need to step back, take inventory of what I'm doing and be careful with any decisions I might be making.

Intentions: I intend to step back, take inventory of what I'm doing and be careful with any decisions I might be making. ;-)

Triumphs: I fit into a shirt that I couldn't button last fall!

Yep. Go ahead and start a thread with your name on it and use it every day, as I've been doing here. That said, here is my entry for today:

Today, my Diary entries are ...

Challenges: The scale seems stuck again and, even though I know that I shouldn't just my progress by that one tiny little indicator, I still let it get to me.

Intentions: I intend to focus on all the OTHER progress I'm making and not even weigh myself for a few days.

Triumphs: We went for a ride on the motorcycle today, the first time in a long time because it's been too cold, and I noticed that the jacket and stuff that I usually wear for a ride fit much differently, as does my butt on the seat! I am definitely thinner than the last time I rode!!!

Makeovers: I wore a pair of skinny jeans today. :-D

Intentions: I intend to get plenty of rest and not push myself too hard.

Triumphs: I managed to find some low-cal, yet filling things to graze on throughout the day (banana with peanut butter, hard boiled egg, a bowl of Cheerios, etc.) and we're having a healthy, veggieful dinner tonight.

Makeovers: WE FINALLY CALLED A PLUMBER TO FIX THAT DAMNED TOILET! It has been vexing me for a week and now the bathroom Feng Shui is a lot more balanced.

(Yes, that counts as a Makeover. Anything you do to make your life feel better, whether it's fixing yourself or your house, or your job, or your car, or whatever, counts.)

Shift your thoughts, shift your shape!

Today, my Diary entries are ...

Challenges: This is a big one. My husband is NOT watching what he eats, and he's very insistent about having what he likes for dinner. So, dinners are always VERY heavy calorie loads. If I want to eat dinner, I either have to cook two seperate meals, or starve the rest of the day just so I can come in under my calorie count. If you've read my book, you know that I hate cooking and he does most of it. If I don't eat, I get sick because my blood sugar goes kaflooie.

Intentions: I intend to find foods to graze on throughout the day that are low in calories, high in taste and filling (shoot, that is a challenge in and of itself, isn't it???).

Triumphs: I'm kicking ass in the exercise department!!! And, regarding yesterday's Challenges and Intentions, I found some good books at the library. I also fit into a shirt that I haven't been able to wear in a while. Jeff also told me that he can see that I'm losing weight in my butt. :-D

Makeovers: Already listed in my Triumphs, I put on a shirt today that has been too tight and it looks great! I'm starting to dig out some of my other "skinny" clothes to see what else I can start thinking about wearing.

Today, my Diary entries are ...

Challenges: I'm not feeling terribly challenged today (yay!) but if I have to pick something, it's that I'm bored. When I get bored, I have to be very careful about getting lazy and sleeping too much.

Intentions: I intend to find something new and interesting, even if it's a new exercise on the Wii Fit that I haven't tried yet.

Triumphs: Regarding yesterday's Challenges and Intentions, I found a new recipe for a yummy dessert today (see Leprechaun Pie on the SparkRecipes site) and convinced Jeff that we should have some healthy veggies with our St. Patty's Day dinner, instead of onion rings.

Makeovers: I did a boatload of laundry today, which helps my house to look a lot better and less cluttered, and also gives me a sense of accomplishment.

Okay, I'm going to go ahead and use this thread as my regular Daily Diary post, but also make it a Sticky thread so you can refer to it when trying to learn how to do this.

Today, my Diary entries are ...

Challenges: I'm getting a little bored with the same foods. I found, when I first started, a lot of things that work for me, but it's getting hard to not eat the other food in the house since I'm tired of the same ol' same ol'.

Intentions: I intend to surf through the SparkRecipes.com site to find some new and easy ideas.

Triumphs: I finally lost a pound, after too long without losing any weight.

Makeovers: I wore my favorite shirt and some earrings to the grocery store today, instead of the regular jeans and t-shirt I usually wear.
