Motivational Quote

"Dare to dream... something will always come of it." - Janusz Korczak I'm supposed to pick a quote I can use as a personal motto, so that's mine. Korczak is also one of the most inspiring people I know of. I first discovered him when I... Read more
Healthy Diet Habits: Find Unexpected Opportunities
Tuesday, September 22, 2009      1 comments

I have a brief homework break, so I will write the last blog on stage 2 of SP so I can finally move on to stage 3. "'Batch cook' a dish this week that can last for 4-5 days." I managed to do that and get my 5 points, but honestly this doesn... Read more
Healthy Diet Habits: Eat On Purpose
Tuesday, September 08, 2009      0 comments

I got behind on these entries again. Technically I should have moved on to Stage 3 by now, but I don't want to until I've written about everything in Stage 2. This habit is one I clearly don't have. I couldn't get myself to complete a singl... Read more

There's another Ask the Experts piece on water ( www.sparkpeople.com/comm

q=47 ) but it's short so I'll just put it here: Can other drinks such as diet sodas and herbal tea count towards my 8 g... Read more
Healthy Diet Habits: Drink Water
Tuesday, August 25, 2009      3 comments

I should start by explaining my thoughts on water. One of the habits I picked up on previous diets was drinking water. Even when I'm not dieting, water is my primary beverage and I almost always have a water bottle on me. Of course, if I drink w... Read more
Healthy Diet Habits: Exercise Consistently
Tuesday, August 25, 2009      3 comments

Life got crazy and I've gotten behind with my blog entries. Even if no one else reads them, I find these useful so I can go back and remember what I did and didn't do from each week. This was the first week I was able to do every Action Ste... Read more

My friends came over but we spent the whole time working. Well, we spent most of the time working, and the rest of the time talking about other things. Mainly SparkPeople, actually. Anyway, we didn't eat much. I ate some carrots while they ... Read more
Baby steps
Wednesday, August 12, 2009      3 comments

I went an entire week without going over my calorie range. Sadly, this is the first time I've done that since joining SP. Of course tomorrow I may have lunch with friends which is often my downfall. But today, I know I've made it a whole we... Read more
My first (and probably last) video blog (video blog)

She talks! She sits! She talks some more! I doubt I'll keep this up here forever. I don't like too many people connecting my real life with my online existence. But for the moment, here it is.... Read more
Healthy Diet Habits: Eat the Right Stuff
Tuesday, August 04, 2009      3 comments

Last week was week 2 of Healthy Diet Habits for me. I only did one of the three action steps. "Plan your menu for the whole week (or every day) using the meal planner." No. I mean... well... no. Probably never. I use the Nutrition Tracker f... Read more
Goodbye dancing
Monday, August 03, 2009      0 comments

I must get myself back into study mode, which means I won't be leaving my home except for errands and study group sessions. I still intend to make time to exercise, but I won't burn additional calories by going out dancing. Every week SP has tol... Read more
Healthy Diet Habits: Control Portions
Wednesday, July 29, 2009      2 comments

I was in week 1 of Healthy Diet Habits last week. I only did two of the three action steps. "Buy a set of measuring cups and measuring spoons" was easy since I probably already own too many of them. "Measure all single serving sizes fo... Read more
I want to go dancing!
Sunday, July 26, 2009      0 comments

But really I should go home and study. For a person with a test in a few weeks, I've been going out way too much recently. Not that I haven't gotten any studying done, but I might have gotten more done if I'd stayed in. Of course, if I go o... Read more
Not bad for one night
Monday, July 20, 2009      0 comments

At the last minute I decided to go to the club last night. To sum up: 1) On Sundays it takes two buses for me to get there. By getting off the first bus and then walking the rest of the way (with a brief detour for dinner) I burned 207 calo... Read more
