Tools and resources
I think that Sparkpeople has given me many tools and resources for my long and rocky journey towards a slimmer me. Also towards a healthier me, which is really what I'm after.
But I think the best tool has been the SP teams I've been on, ma... Read more
WEC challenge 11/1
I'd say the time I showed the most strength, mentally and physically, was when I had stitches without anesthesia. I had had some reconstructive surgery done, but being the type of person I am, and considering where the surgery site was, I found ... Read more
Well, this WEC was about choosing our own road to success. A lot has been going on this weekend, this month, this entire season. And I may not have been paying as much attention to my food and exercise as I should. But this challenge has given m... Read more
Well, what can I say: these interim weeks could have gone better, but they could have gone much worse, too. It's been stressful, and I spent a lot of time eating my feelings. (Hey, I really like that expression, which I just heard today...) But ... Read more
My small goal for the month of September is to get my eating back on track. Notice I said back on track, and didn't choose to say I will control my eating. Good intake is not something to be wrestled to the ground, like a wild animal, something ... Read more
Well, it's been a different sort of day here. Back to work after more than 2 weeks off for vacation. Had to do a route, which I did slowly so I didn't mess up my knee again. Waiting for Ed to get home because we're supposed to help buy the dry w... Read more
Everything I've learned the past year? It can all be put down to a few words: I'm stronger than I think I am. And I can almost always push myself a little bit more.
I've had a tough year... my mom died, my cat died, I've gotten older, my yo... Read more
Hello, my name is Rebecca and I am a sugar addict...
Went to have my nails done at my friend's house and she offered cookies and zucchini bread, one of my faves. Our roomie brought home little pies and cookies from work. There is chocolate... Read more
My best experiences this round can be put into 2 words: determination and friendship.
First off, even with all the distractions (health issues, insurance problems, new roomies, job frustrations, etc) I was determined to stick with the progr... Read more
Day one: no sugar...
Day two: good girl
Day three: can I admit I'm only doing this so I can pos... Read more
My exercise challenge for the 5% team is to do a daily bootcamp or other SP exercise video, and to continue my daily walking. I am now up to 6300 steps per day. While I know that my slow form of walking isn't enough to get out of my current plat... Read more
Two weird/different emotions happened to me today...
One deals with a DD coupon I've had on my phone for a couple of weeks, a deal on a coolatta. I usually go for the coffee; after all, I am a Mocha Maniac. But the weather has been nice eno... Read more
I was going to say...
Feeling sort of blah today, and I suspect the reason is because I'm up half a pound from last week. I know it doesn't sound like much, but it's still going in the wrong direction. And I also acknowledge that since I hurt my knee five days ago, m... Read more
This is my blog for the BLC#25, about the fitness tests. I did 35 push-ups and 48 crunches in the allotted time. Not too bad for an old lady... Actually, I was surprised that I did that well, especially on the push-ups, but I guess it's true tha... Read more
A perfect storm of food...
Yesterday was a really bad food day for me. I got caught in 3 old traps: social eating, free food, and impending snow storm, which we ALL know could leave me trapped in my home for weeks at a time with no food, much less any good food.
I fe... Read more
