One of today's Spark emails talked about calories, and mentioned the calorie difference between light mayonnaise and real mayonnaise -- and discussed it as if light mayo were a good thing. Ironically, Spark has a separate article about the ... Read more

Well, I made it to NJ. Believe me, today that was a major accomplishment! I was only able to finish the dumbell parts of my weights/strength day exercise routine before the grill repair guy arrived. I thought, while he's here, why don't I... Read more
Go me!

Today was WI. I'd been worried about how it would go, given that I was away last week.... I lost 5.2 pounds! On the not-so-great side, my main physical accomplishment today was taking a 3+ hour long nap. Though, in a way, it was a ve... Read more

Today I had an experience that was too good to be true (but I don't care!). My fiance and I were in Sears to buy vacuum bags when I was distracted by Land's End tote bags (they had pink, what can I say). Then I noticed a tunic ... and tried it... Read more
Not-quite July 1 self assessment and goal setting

Today my CoreBuddies team leader posted to the list reminding us that it's the middle of the year, and asking for some self assessments. I decided to repost my response in my blog, so I can access it easily in the future: I can't believe h... Read more

My overnight trip to NJ turned into two nights -- and therefore also two days away from home and my WW Core pantry and fridge. I made it through, but not perfectly. My biggest challenge (which I didn't meet well) was spreading my eating ou... Read more

Thanks to people here, on WW and friends who aren't on either, I made it through the other day. Thank you to everyone! I kept going and I kept eating well. Yesterday I planned well for my trip to NJ and didn't fall victim to *any* fast fo... Read more
It's just so darned hard

Today I cried while working out (weights, core, PT stuff) because it's so darned hard. It's hard and I feel like I'm getting no positive reinforcement for what I'm doing. I know that knowing I'm doing good things for my body should be enough b... Read more

Well, the WW scale told a different story from my scale. That was disheartening, and on Wednesday night I had pizza and a beer because it felt like all my work had been for nothing. (And my, what a buzz I got from one beer!) On Thursday, ... Read more
Woot! I think I did *great*!

I spent the past week at a camping event, relying mostly on the camp's dining hall for meals. The camp isn't known for providing "diet friendly" food, so I modified my WW Core eating plan to stay as Core as possible, but also to allow me to act... Read more

Today I have been totally, completely miserable. I've tried to get myself motivated to go out for a walk twice, and neither time was I able to convince myself to go. As much as I've been tempted to go on an eating binge, I've been mostly ... Read more

I finally figured out how to use the blog. I guess it is about having the right motivation. Today I chose a few SparkTeams to concentrate on. I posted intros on all of them, and am hoping that at least some have challenges for June. ... Read more
