What's the Focus for the Week?
Last week was mentally tough, and I have survived. This week, I am ready to re-focus on healthy decisions.

Whoa, Honey! Fell Off Wagon, But Ran Alongside It
Girl, please. The last five days have been a bit of a whirlwind with work and family needing more of my time than normal. Now that's it's over, I'm taking inventory:
Exercise: Shoot. Didn't really happen. Well, that can change.
Eating:... Read more
Ten Days of Good Decisions
Ten days ago I dusted off my copy of The Spark Solution, read the book again, bought groceries, planned meals, weighed in, and buckled down to face what seemed to be a turning point in my health: my weight was 12 pounds higher than before my bro... Read more
Whoa! Binge Began, Then Stopped
Lesson: must track food or eating gets out of control.
My school brought in lunch from Panera since a group of us were interviewing today. No biggie; I had salad and bread. But I didn't track. And that's how the binge begins. I feel like I... Read more
Okay, this just happened.
I have a colleague at work who I confided in on Monday about my recent weight struggles and my plan. (You know, tell people, enlist support.) She appeared very supportive at the time.
Today, I told her that I'... Read more
Successes and Struggles
I had a great Monday by following The Spark Solution Day 1. Ate well, exercised, felt really good.
I avoided the scale this morning. I am committing to weighing myself only on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Does Everybody Lose Control?
Because, seriously folks, I have let my bad habits get out of hand.
(I almost wrote "let myself get out of hand" but this isn't about blame. It's about progress.)
Let's talk numbers. 154. There. It's out there. Not that it's a bad numb... Read more

What's Going Well:
The beginnings of the week are always good for me: meals are planned, exercise is planned, my attitude is one of a fresh start. That said, it's been a good couple of days. I am tracking food (until 3:00) and I had a good ... Read more

What's going well:
I've been much more conscious about eating healthy lately. Oatmeal or raisin bran for breakfast, more salads with or for lunch, and watching portions at dinner.
New habit: I must drink 4 glasses of water before I can have... Read more

What's Going Well?
Most things! Still eating healthy for the most part. I'm getting back into the workout gig. Last night, I dragged myself to TKD (dragged because I was exhausted), and over the weekend I managed to do a weightlifting/cardio c... Read more

What's Going Well?
I feel really good today. Mostly, this is because I've been tracking food, eating GOOD food (meaning healthy), staying full, and avoiding the binges.

What Went Well Over the Weekend:
I went to sparring class! I haven't gone in months, and it felt good to put on the gear and again and kick people. :) I also did the regular class, getting an 80-minute workout in on Saturday.
On Friday... Read more
Along with chronic laziness, I was struck by a bout of bronchitis (indeed, nobody got time for dat) and have just floundered for the last two weeks. What happens when one flounders too long? One eventually hits land.
I've decided to name th... Read more
