Oh Yay

Friday, January 17, 2014

I got the letter in the mail today. The one from my husband's employer, informing me of how lucky I am to have the great opportunity to improve my health by working with the care management team this year to set some goals. My "health issue" listed on the letter? WEIGHT.

Thanks, yeah - I knew that. Now, there will be a financial consequence for failing to meet my goals. Somehow...I'm not feeling so 'lucky'.

Nevertheless - I shall press on.

    I dunno, it sounds like a pile of something you wouldn't want on your shoe...

Corporate healthcare initiatives are SO not my thing!

Set your goals and make your own progress; good living is the best revenge!

    Hey, at least it'll be some motivation to achieve your goals! But I still think that's crazy for them to do that.

    Believe it or not, fear of this kind of thing is at least PART of my motivation. I'm in my fourth year of maintenance... my work place started doing the "wellness" thing about... four years ago? Yep. Weight is no longer on their list for me.

You'll never guess what risk factor comes up, year after year, and it has me rolling on the floor each time: "age". emoticon Stay strong!

Lazy Blog Post

Monday, December 30, 2013

I need one more point for a bonus spin on the Sparkpoints wheel. So, I'm posting this blog. Lazy, I know. Tomorrow's will be better.

    I find tracking food to be the easy/lazy way to get a few more points. emoticon

Wow - it's been over a month!

Saturday, November 02, 2013

Gosh, I've sure not posted in a while. Had a couple weeks of great healthy living, then I got a cold and an ear infection and totally wasn't feeling it any more.

I'm on the mend now, and after two days of hogging down Halloween candy like a goofball, I'm ready to:

1. Pack it away in an inconspicuous place
2. Remind myself that it belongs to my children, and it doesn't matter if they won't notice a piece missing here and there
3. Dust off the treadmill
4. Get back to swinging the kettlebell
5. Spend more time here, sparking, than on Facebook!


No Halloween candy
8 glasses of water
Record what I eat
10K steps on the Fitbit

Today's Challenge - No TV?

Thursday, August 15, 2013

I've not sat and watched TV in weeks. I watch others in my family sit and watch TV while I'm cleaning the kitchen, doing laundry, putting away the groceries, and on and on and on.

Staying away from the computer, however, now THAT would be a challenge for me. fact, I really don't think I could do it. Limit - yes. Keep away from it entirely, probably not. Guess I should try it tomorrow.

Don't want to.

But I will.

    Good luck. I had a tough weekend with limited access, but there was so much else to do, it was OK.
