Monday, January 25, 2016      28 comments

I truly believe that a large part of my past failure has been trying to change too much all at once, then beating myself up for 'failing' (not being able to perfectly maintain the impossible). This week, I'm still working on maintaining consiste... Read more
Progress for the New Year
Sunday, January 10, 2016      1 comments

Here's what I've accomplished so far, over the past 6 weeks or so: 1. Got myself on a regular pattern of sleeping 7 - 8 hours a night. I had some glitches here and there; a few nights when I woke up at 2 or 4 am and couldn't go back to sle... Read more
Healthy Balance - Day 2

"When was the last time you ate a meal without multitasking? Today's challenge is to practice mindful eating during every single meal and snack. Focus on your food without any other distractions (like work or screens)." I'm more concerned a... Read more
I Am an Unconscious/Emotional Eater
Monday, August 10, 2015      1 comments

I've been reading the book Intuitive Eating (and listening to it while I walk around the block - yay me - exercise!). I've discovered that I am an unconscious/emotional eater. I eat while I'm doing other things. In fact, I just finished my break... Read more
Danged if ya do - Danged if you don't.

I have to lose 20 pounds by the end of September, or it will cost me several thousand dollars in increased insurance premiums next year. This stinks for several reasons. Mostly because I don't want to be missing several thousand dollars. A... Read more
Happy Birthday to Me
Saturday, June 13, 2015      4 comments

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
Swim Day!
Wednesday, June 03, 2015      4 comments

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
Wednesday, April 29, 2015      2 comments

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
Saturday, March 07, 2015      4 comments

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
Wednesday, February 04, 2015      3 comments

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
Thursday, January 29, 2015      4 comments

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
Tuesday, December 23, 2014      1 comments

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
