Monday goals

Monday, October 22, 2012

Last week was hard for lots of reasons. Usually for me, it's work which causes me to stress eat and drink. I'm also not able to exercise the way I like to (run) because I'm waiting for an MRI for a foot injury. I did cycle on Saturday & get to the gym on Sunday. And get on Spark every day just to check in even if I'm not tracking my food regularly.

Goal this week: get on spark every day!


trying something new

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

which is blogging publicly. and changing my screen name to something that feels more like me.

I'm trying again. I ran a half marathon this weekend - couldn't even tell you how many this has been since I've done at least 12, maybe more, and the extra weight makes things tough. I am trying to find what works for me - not the latest thing or what works for others.

Inspired by other members

Thursday, August 02, 2012

today I read two blog entries from other members - hopefulchange and adam (?). Their messages were: 1) non scale victories; 2) don't be your own worst enemy.

They resonated because I was ruminating on work a lot as I stepped into the shower and feeling irritated - that I have too much work to do and yesterday it was hard for me to take care of myself. The most I could carve out of back to back meetings was leaving one meeting 15 minutes before it ended so I could have a brief break before the next. No down time to have lunch; ate while in another meeting.

I ran this morning and when I came back was still thinking about work. Even though I tried to put it aside and enjoy the ME time while I was running. I considered stepping on the scale even though I hadn't planned to do so tomorrow - and then thought, if it's not what I think it should be - some sort of loss - then I'll be pissed. And, potentially set myself up for a day of negativity and feeling bad ... all because of the scale!

So I didn't. Instead I tried to think of my NSV - getting back into spark, POSTING here, even though I haven't done it publically yet, tracking my food. Exercising. Not drinking wine last night, even though I wanted to!! (Didn't, because I needed to run this morning!).

Glad that I had those two entries to read this morning that reinforced some of my thoughts.


Four day win and weigh in

Friday, July 27, 2012

I'm trying a few things including 4 day wins (martha beck). Just completed one of no wine for 4 days - success! I've found that I am really tired which is surprising and suspect that I am using the wine for its sugar boost, unintentionally. I did weigh this morning and am down a little bit. I haven't updated my most recent weight which went up from what's listed here.

I was really sick with a bad cold for two weeks and couldn't exercise at all. Going back to work has been hard and the past two weeks I've been trying to catch up there. But, I did exercise Mon-Weds this week and plan to go for a run tomorrow.


Grateful today for Sparkpeople

Thursday, June 14, 2012

I'm doing 4 day wins again (no wine) and am on day 3. I am also trying to get in the habit of logging on to Spark every day and at least entering my breakfast. If I can get some meals entered, that's a start, right?

Today I realized how glad I am for this tool of Sparkpeople. I can get a little shot of motivation from browsing quickly others' pages or see the what's new stuff right on the front page. Very grateful for it and hope I can continue to explore all that it offers and experience some success from using it!
