Got my Fitbit today!
Found my new Fitbit Zip waiting when we got home from running errands this afternoon. Actually, it apparently got here yesterday, my husband just didn't bother to tell me! I wish he had, it would have been fun to see how many steps we covered ... Read more
Evil Chinese Food
Well, we ended up ordering Chinese last night so my calorie count for the day was pretty ugly on the Nutrition Tracker - a little over 2,000. And that's assuming I did everything right on the tracker - it's probably higher.
Plan of ATTACK and Sparkversary!
I was going to title this blog, "Action Plan," but I like the "attack" mentality better! I need to attack my weight and fitness levels. Going into battle...fighting the temptations to be bad.
I Hate Hate Hate the Scale!!!
I know, I know, you're all going to tell me to measure...maybe I will actually break down and go get a good measuring tape so I can start doing that, because I'm so frustrated with he lack of progress, scale-wise. This morning I was up 2 lbs ov... Read more
Got on my bike this morning and as usual when I do this particular route, I underestimated how far I was going and found myself quite a ways from home at 5 till 7! (I usually finish my workout by 7am). So I had to really put the pedal to the m... Read more
Ramping Up for Grand Teton

Back from Vacation!
We got back yesterday afternoon - only to find our car sitting in the airport parking lot with a dead battery. D'oh! There was a light on in the car, I guess that's what did it, because the car is only a couple years old. Anyhow, luckily AAA ... Read more
Friday for Me!
Woo hoo, tomorrow we leave on VACATION! I am so ready. Well, actually I'm not - I've barely started to think about what I need to take! But it'll all come together.
Got myself out on a bike ride today. I had two goals: to go more than 7... Read more
Saw an interesting thing on the Spark email today - weighted vests! I'm intrigued...could be a great way to amp up my walks. I've been leery of doing something like carrying weights, with my back issues, but a weighted vest would put the onus ... Read more
Monday and I got a weekend!
So nice to actually feel like I got a weekend! Been way too long.
It was a busy one. I took Kate to karate both Friday night and Saturday morning, then we spent a couple hours running errands. Not exciting, but nice to spend some time wi... Read more
