My health coach (a perk from work) encouraged me to have 1 vegetable at lunch and one at dinner to help me to kickstart myself to eating more vegetable. I nuked up some carrots tonight and bagged them up to take along with my lunch tomorrow. ... Read more
Alphabet City

A lot of my friends are posting what their "word" is for 2018. I chose one also: Miracles - but upon further introspection, I don't want just one word: I want a whole alphabet. A- Ability B- Beautiful C-Courageous D-Determined E-En... Read more

Hello Sparks, I've been away from here for a while, but many of you have been in my thoughts. I am taking stock of myself and see what I need to do to be healthier in 2018. It's been quite some time since I really set New Year's resolutions... Read more

Gearing up - ready for the week ahead. I have food I can take to work. I have weaned myself off of stopping to Dunkin Donuts every day, and my fitbit is charging. I am happy with my progress and I am doing it one day at time.... Read more

On my "authorized" (set by me) weigh-in day, I had a ready mindset. Good, bad or indifferent, show me scale, how this week's eating has panned out. Am I on the right track? A resounding YES! I lost 3.8 lbs since I weighed in last Saturday... Read more
It was calling me
Wednesday, August 02, 2017      6 comments

Sometimes, you just have to give in. I tried to steer clear, but my mind was made up --- and I could not deter that intense feeling that told me to go to the kitchen. Not to eat - but to use the scale I recently bought. I should have resisted bu... Read more
If not me, then who? If not now, then when?:

I have a new mantra on repeat. Give it all you got. That boils down what I need to do to be successful - not just at weight loss, or healthy living, but at life. When you find discouragement and negativity in the world, and you let t... Read more

It's been months since I weighed in. Can't remember what it was even. Recently bought a new scale, and decided I will weigh in on Saturday mornings. I clocked in at 442.8lbs. My lowest weight in the last 3 years, was 398, and I am working o... Read more
Fat sucks (not me)
Wednesday, July 26, 2017      4 comments

Being fat sucks. No surprise. But, I am working on eating less carbs, and eating cleaner food. I ate what felt like a lot of food today, But a lot of what I ate was fruits and vegetables, and I do feel way more full on less food. I am figuring i... Read more
The Re-boot

I slept well last night. I had mostly uninterrupted sleep minus a massive leg cramp that I am attributing to eating too large a banana. Bananas have a lot of potassium and too much potassium for me is no bueno. I have been drinking lots of water... Read more
Mid Week Update
Wednesday, July 19, 2017      3 comments

I had a couple of so so days at home. Not depressed, but a bit of malaise - it's hot as hades in the house (the ac is broken except in the bedroom), there is an overwhelming amount of housework to do, and while my mobility has improved, it is no... Read more
Dinner Out
Saturday, July 15, 2017      9 comments

Hubby and I went out for dinner tonight - Mexican - the food was freshly prepared and delicious, except they unexpectedly covered it in sour cream which I didn't care for. I mixed it in, because it was so thick otherwise, and I couldn't stomach ... Read more

Yesterday, our power was out after strong storms, which prevented me from logging in. Luckily, it came back in a few hours. I have to wait until 8pm (EST_ before I can go to bed, because I am monitoring a client's show, but the performance goes ... Read more

I am going head first. I lost the will for a while there, but I feel myself being back on track. Glad I came back to SP. Glad I am meal prepping. Glad I am able to move as much as I am. Need to keep at it! ... Read more

Who is it? Oh I know who it is, it is my boss at the door. He got locked out of the office with the automatic locking system. There were still 3 people in the office suite - and I was the furthest away from the door. I got up and let him in thou... Read more
