Happy Birthday to Me
Today, I turn 44.
It is also the last day of a 10-week challenge I joined with a group of women in my community; a Facebook challenge.
My goal was to lose 10 lbs in 10 weeks. I can't say I was 100% diligent in my efforts, but I still ... Read more
Today is my middle's 7th birthday...and it's Secret Swim Day too! Yay! Two reasons to celebrate!
I found this awesome gadget at Target. It makes those skinny, long 'noodles' out of vegetables. So so fun!
One week away from the end of the ... Read more
Slow and Steady
I was thinking this morning about how well I've been doing lately, without such a laser focused intensity (which I've typically been unable to sustain over time).
I believe I'm finally in a good, successful groove here, owing to the negati... Read more
It's been quite a while since I've posted a blog entry. I have new impetus for rekindling my inner "Bombshell"....cold, hard cash! Entered a local 10 week challenge. Day one, and going pretty well so far. Planning a date with the treadmill in th... Read more
Slumping a bit
I would assess my performance this week as fair. I've had to rely on my sparktracker for steps, so not sure how accurate it is and makes my volume of steps look pretty crappy. It does seem to work better/be more accurate when I wear it on my ... Read more
I was able to figure out my Sparktracker yesterday evening. It logged 10,076 steps as opposed to my pedo, which said 6238. I was also on point with my food; 1608 calories (give or take, as I chose things that were 'similar' to the IRL food I ate... Read more
Consistency - overcoming obstacles
In spite of technical difficulties, I am remaining consistent. 26 days logging into Sparkpeople. Sleeping consistently well. Running/miscellaneous other exercise consistently, and tracking food.
This morning, I realized - 20 minutes into my... Read more
So, maybe the Superbowl didn't end up a pitfall for me ... but my daughter's sleepover birthday was. I had too much food. As in, I bought and served too much food and I ate too much food. My daily calorie range is supposed to be 1480 - 1830. I w... Read more
Consistency Update - Chapter 2 and 3
Today, I celebrate my 20th day of logging into Sparkpeople CONSISTENTLY, 14 days of being CONSISTENT (mostly; there was one day I didn't) in visiting Black Betty (my treadmill - Pedo says 10808 steps for yesterday), and 14 days of CONSISTENTLY s... Read more
Still Trying to Develop Consistency
My previously listed goals must have just been too complex, or too much all at once - because they've not been a successful tool in helping me to develop consistency.
I changed my goal to 'log onto Sparkpeople daily'. I've been consistent ... Read more
I've been working with a personal coach from Dr. Roizen's 'Enforcer' program and have developed some pretty good/realistic goals to help me develop consistency. Planning to track them here in a little more depth than on the Sparkpeople Tracker p... Read more
Today's Sparkcoach lesson was about Diet Saboteurs; those people in your life who are less than supportive of your healthy efforts for various reasons. This is a hard one for me, because I have one who is very close in my life and one who is 'ou... Read more
What do I hope to achieve?
Today's Sparkcoach session was about defining your vision. Sparkguy didn't use those words, but that's what popped into my mind.
I've got exactly two minutes or I won't have time for Yoga before my shower, waking the kids up, and rushing of... Read more
It's Been Far Too Long, My Friends
Sheesh. The last time I posted anything beyond a status was in January. That's bad.
I'm on a roll with Sparkcoach, though. I started taking notes on the sessions. That seems to help me pay attention/remember/internalize the information bet... Read more
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" lis... Read more
