Staying on Course!
Just a short note, I am staying on course and it's showing on the scale (about 8 from high). I still need to add exercise, but I am happy that I can see some results.
As many know I love fiber arts, and have an unexpected opportunity today ... Read more
Day 3 - Tracking Food and some inspiration source
I have been corresponding with a fellow Sparker on and off for a few months and it has inspired me to keep at it, even with a lot of slips, holidays and some sickness. Before when this was going on, I was focusing on getting 8 hours every night.... Read more
Inspired and Tracking
Inspired by another Sparker who tracks every day no matter what, I started tracking on Monday. In less than a week's time, I have lost almost 3 pounds. What tracking does is 1. keeps you aware and 2. provides feedback.
Therefore, I am than... Read more
Getting things done - wishing more was done
I am terribly inconsistent on getting things done. I need to figure out what my plan is to be more consistent.
That said, I did well yesterday, as I got 10,000 steps in, I gathered and took out the trash, I folded laundry and cleaned in bot... Read more
Back to Work
Today was back to work. I still feel terribly sad about my long-time colleague and friend's sudden retirement, but I managed to get a little done and maintain my composure.
The good part of it was that I walked with a couple of the guys and... Read more
A bad night and a full day
Last night I had trouble sleeping. It could have been the tea I had at 2 or it more likely was because of my friend who is retiring.
Today I went to an art show, and also worked on PC set up and had an acupuncture treatment.
I have be... Read more
Ups and Downs
Well, I had a binge last night, didn't track all day and ended with a scale loss today. It could be that walking through the farmer's market 3 times in the morning helped, although that was less than 5000 steps.
On Friday my BFF at work tol... Read more
So far, so good!
Good start today. Last night I went to bed at a reasonable time and this morning I am feeling good. Yesterday I tracked all day!
Today's challenge is that I am going out to dinner to celebrate my recent anniversary (30 years married!). The... Read more
Up, Up and Away (I hope!)
I recently came back from vacation and had hit a high weight for me. All the time I had been gaining and losing, I knew I had not matched my worst weight. Now I have. The prospect of hitting new record highs is enough to "scare me straight". Th... Read more
Day 4 - a fine day
So today was day 4 - I almost ate too much dried mango, but I checked it first and then decided to eat some but less and add some peanuts to increase my protein and a little fat, which I have room for. Yay me!
I was talking to a dear friend... Read more
Starting the New Year well
I've been tracking my food for today and yesterday. So far, doing pretty well. I am feeling good about it.
So what if it's not my first time to this goat rodeo - I can just be that much better prepared for the challenges ahead. Sometimes it... Read more
Here again - back at square one
Square one - sometimes a hopeful place, sometimes a depressing place - and unfortunately, a terribly familiar place.... Read more
Day 4 - challenging day
I woke up over early because of work worries. I was unable to address these worries today at work. I have home stuff to do also.
I really need to focus on getting these cleared away. Rats!... Read more

Intent to Improve
I've been off-track lately. I am once again paying attention to what I eat, how much sleep I get and how much exercise I am getting. I just started doing this yesterday.
My morning weight was down 2/10 of a pound. We'll see how it's going ... Read more
