Call Me Dee

Returning to SparkPeople was one of the best decisions I made in 2012.

I hit my goal weight 12/31/12 and it was the best way to end the year. I maintained my goal weight all of 2013 and to celebrate it I joined the At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance team.

Motto for 2014: I am an adult! (And will therefore think and act like one, when my inner 3 year old wants to take over!)

January- 27/31 workout days; hit my daily steps count 30/31 days. ...

I hit my goal weight 12/31/12 and it was the best way to end the year. I maintained my goal weight all of 2013 and to celebrate it I joined the At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance team.

Motto for 2014: I am an adult! (And will therefore think and act like one, when my inner 3 year old wants to take over!)

January- 27/31 workout days; hit my daily steps count 30/31 days. Challenges: 30 Day Abs Challenge and no cookies all month.

February- 18/28 workout days; hit my daily steps count 27/28 days. Challenges: repeat 30 Day Abs Challenge- ended 2/13; day 11 of the challenge (I got really sick).
No Cookies, Chocolate, Cake, or Candy all month- I ingested 1 fortune cookie, I totally don't think of it as a cookie; and there's some debate about my ingestion of panCakes and pound Cake, because I don't count them as cake. I had nightmares that I ingested a gummy bear or an M&M and blew the challenge, but I did better than I thought!!

March- 31/31 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 31/31 days; Streak into Spring 21/21 days; eat 3 veggies a day 28/31 days; and go to the gym 4 days a week 4/4 weeks!

April- 24/30 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 24/30 days; 100 Happy Days- Days 1-30 were fun to share; go to the gym 4 days a week- 4/5 weeks (I caught a cold the final week); and NO 'little bits', 'just a bites', or 'just ones'- Every Saturday I would have a few bites of the boyfriends' pancakes, but did impressively well the rest of the week!

May- 25/31 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 28/31 days; Challenges: 100 Happy Days- days 31-61 in the bag; Hit new goal weight- not meant to be this month; 30 Day Abs Challenge- dropped this challenge early in the month; go to the gym 4 days a week- 1/4 weeks

June- 30/30 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 29/30 days; Challenges: 100 Happy Days- days 62-91 in the bag; Go to the gym 3 days/week- 1/4 weeks; Take a walk break at work- 21/21 days; Eat within range 6 days/week- 3/4 weeks; Inch closer to that new goal weight- didn't happen

July- 26/31 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 24/31 days; Finish 100 Happy Days- done; Emma Nutt Day Maintenance Challenge (with center weight of 122lbs)- missed the deadline for the final week in July; Go to the gym 3 days/week- 4/5 weeks; Eat within range 6 days/week- 4/5 weeks

August- 23/31 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 23/31 days; Go to the gym 3 days/week- 3/4 weeks; Eat within range 6 days/week- 0 weeks (sad, I know); Run at least 3 miles/week- 2/4 weeks; Eat only 1 chocolatey snack/day- 27/31 days, 3 days I didn't have any and 1 day I had 2.

THANKS so much for your support, Dee! All the comments from you "all-time GREAT maintainers" is what keeps me going! I know from watching you guys that it TRULY can be done and it keeps me going!

That's rough when you guy is the "food-pusher" but it sounds like you have it all figured out nicely! It's funny, we have to "do what we have to do" even iwth our guys! emoticon

Thank you, Dee, for reading/commenting on my Thanksgiving blog. I'm a lot like you -- I love the sides even more than the main entrée. That's why now that there are only two of us I seldom make a huge turkey or ham. It only goes to waste. I seem to be married to a guy who doesn't like leftovers -- except maybe when it's pot roast.

Hey, just a little FYI -- we've just moved to Sun City, downsizing drastically and the theme of my dining/living room is: (you won't believe this) ORANGE!! Just proves anything is possible. I had a beautiful area rug that had orange/tan/crème in it, that went under the new glass table I bought. And I have on order two new easy chairs that is a wild (but kind of subdued) pattern or oranges, red, yellow, tan, all kind of muted shades, but the combination is lively and fun! Wait for pix -- custom order and not here yet.
Hugs, Eve emoticon
