Two week streak!
I came back to Sparkpeople after our summer vacation, 2 weeks ago, and I'm building some good habits:
1. Sparkpeople: logging my food and exercise
2. Gym, 6 days per week. It doesn't matter what I do there--Just Go!
3. Morning walks--1/2 h... Read more
I am enjoying the honeymoon phase--the first week back to good habits, where the results kick in and the scale drops a little every day. I know it can't last--I already had a day where my weight went UP a little, but it plummeted again the next ... Read more
Sparkpeople may be habit-forming.
In the best way possible!!
I have gone to the gym every day after work. Sometimes I didn't want to, but I wanted to write it in on Sparkpeople.
Also, logged all my food, even the sample of cake that I ate at the grocery store because free ca... Read more
Back to basics.
My Domestic Partner (DP) made fun of me for using Sparkpeople. He doesn't realize that it hurt my feelings & deterred me from a necessary resource.
Since I fell out of Sparkpeople, I stopped recording my food and exercise. Without this struct... Read more
Hard to believe, but...
…yoga at the Senior Citizens' Center left me sore for two days!
Astounding to realize that I am a senior citizen, according to our town. How on earth did this happen? In my mind, I'm only 28 years old--half my calendar age. Wow.

Not my idea of a holiday weekend.
I've been sick in bed since Friday. So my exercise minutes are zero, possibly fewer, and my calorie count is pretty close to that, too. I'm on the Diluted Gatorade and a Couple Bites of Banana diet.
Pretty sure I'll have to call out of work t... Read more
Back to Yoga! Hooray!
Oh. My. Goodness.
I went to "all levels" yoga with the Domestic Partner on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.
It Kicked My Butt! It felt like it was my first day of yoga.
I am going to do my own yoga practice today. It's not going to be "All... Read more
…when you use it.
I have not been measuring, tracking, exercising, or eating for health.
And guess what? I gained weight!
I'm now almost 40 pounds above my goal--goal being what I weighed in the fall of 2013.
That makes me officially ove... Read more
Don't take the bait.
If I lived alone, there would not be cupcakes and ice cream in my house. But I don't live alone; I live with a skinny man.
I realize that it is my responsibility to ignore the cupcakes and ice cream. I'm an adult, and I make decisions for mys... Read more
Short-term S.M.A.R.T. goal
I committed to teaching a yoga mini-workshop five weeks from today. Can I lose ten pounds in time for the workshop?
Here is my SMART goal analysis:
S=specific (ten pounds)
M=measurable (I have a scale)
A=attainable (2 pounds a week is f... Read more
"The year that we were in shape"
A few years back, when my youngest daughter lived at home, we committed to our fitness. We started with walking, the same 2-mile route that I walk now, before work every morning and after work every evening, Monday thru Friday. We still call tha... Read more
The last straw!
I had to buy larger pants last weekend. Two sizes larger!
Was it fun? Why, no…no it wasn't.
Oh well, at least it galvanized me into performing better habits this week.

Prioritize--then get it done.
I have a number of tasks that I do not want to do. They are never as bad as they seem, once I get started. It's just awfully hard to get started.
But this is just like my Elliptical Experiment from a few weeks ago. Getting to the elliptical wa... Read more
I stopped eating sugar and all other sweeteners five weeks ago.
But today, our friends brought us some homemade Easter sweets and I decided to indulge. Big mistake.
My heart is racing, I am anxious, hyperventilating, and I feel like I'm goi... Read more
You can't out-train a bad diet.
Not that I'm exactly "training…"
Anyway. I formed the morning-walk habit. Yea me! It makes all the difference in the world that it's not, you know, sleeting any more.
I've only lost ONE of the 21 pounds I gained in 4 months.
Time t... Read more
