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!

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

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
