Resetting and Restarting
Sunday, October 12, 2008      3 comments

Thank you, everyone, for commenting and supporting me after that last blog entry. Thanks to you folks and someone on another board I participate in, I realized that part of what I needed to do was re-set my brain. As my friend put it so ... Read more
Barely treading water
Thursday, October 02, 2008      7 comments

I'm still feeling sick -- hopefully, if this plays out the way it did for DH last week, I'll be much better tomorrow. I feel like I've been sick (in one way or another) for all of September and am tired of it. I've hardly exercised for weeks and... Read more
And so it goes
Friday, September 26, 2008      6 comments

For the past few weeks I haven't been feeling well. I haven't been exercising as much, and I haven't been on spark as much. Mostly I've been sitting around feeling sorry for myself -- which, frankly, was fairly deserved for some of it. I'... Read more
Pondering Stage 3 rewards -- suggestions?
Friday, September 12, 2008      4 comments

I've gotten stuck at the "rewards" section of Stage 3. As you probably know, I'm all in favor of rewards and have them planned for each 5-lb loss. Spark Stage 3 has you come up with time-based rewards: one for keeping with Spark for 12 we... Read more
10%!!!!! Woohoo!
Wednesday, September 10, 2008      11 comments

In WW, the first big goal is losing 10 percent of your starting body weight. Today I reached my 10%!!!!! For me, 10% is also 25 lbs -- another goal and reward reached! I don't think I've weighed under 230 in more than a decade! Go me... Read more
Why it's good to measure
Sunday, September 07, 2008      4 comments

Usually I end a workout feeling tired but invigorated. Today I finished feeling tired but discouraged. I felt like I've been working and working and working without any visible differences. I know that's not accurate, but it's how I was feeli... Read more
Tired of assumptions about women and muscle bulk -- the "myth" isn't all myth
Saturday, September 06, 2008      0 comments

Earlier today I saw someone get torn down (I won't say where) because people assumed she was using a low weight in strength training because of a fear of bulking up. And, as always, people used the term "bulking up myth." I actually went to Go... Read more
Report on August, and working on September, goals
Monday, September 01, 2008      3 comments

I know it's September 1 already, but I haven't figured out my self-challenge goals yet. I can report on my August goals, though! I didn't meet my 5000 step goal, but by the end of the month I was a lot closer to every day than when I start... Read more
Checking in

I'm still here, and still going. I lost 2.2 lbs at WI on Wednesday, which is great. I also had one of my worst eating days on Wednesday. I'm not sure if it's because it's mid-week, or because the stress of WI is over, or because I'm in a good... Read more

Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow. Earlier in the day I had said I would go for a walk, so a little while ago I got myself dressed and out for a walk. I decided that I wanted to walk fairly briskly, since it was cool out and I wanted to keep myself warm.... Read more
I did it, and I have happy toes!
Wednesday, August 20, 2008      12 comments

Today I was down 2.4 at WI and, as of today, have lost 20.2 lbs! Woohoo! For whatever reason, 20 lbs is where weight loss begins to feel "real" to me. Maybe it's because I've lost 5-15 lbs many times in the past (and always gained it back... Read more
On a totally frivolous note
Tuesday, August 19, 2008      2 comments

I really, really, really need a pedicure. A pedicure is one of my 20 lb rewards, and I'm 2.2 away. Please, please, please, please, please I want to lose 2.2 lbs at WI on Wednesday! My toes are practically begging for it!... Read more
Today went well!
Monday, August 18, 2008      2 comments

Hi everyone! I ate incredibly well and OP today, worked out, got in over 4000 steps (I might try to get that final 1000 in before going to sleep) and accomplished most of the top priority things on today's to-do list. If only every day we... Read more

This week I'm going back to writing daily to-do lists. I've also put together household checklists -- daily, weekly and monthly -- and will put them up on the bulletin board. Now that the wedding is over (and I currently don't have any paying ... Read more
Back from NJ again
Friday, August 15, 2008      4 comments

This week I went to NJ again to work on the house and work on clearing out my storage unit. Feh. Even though it's necessary it wreaks havoc on my eating and workout plans. I'd hoped to get a workout in today, but I'm just too tired. Part... Read more
