What is it about weekends?
Monday, March 09, 2015      1 comments

... I can’t seem to stay on track. It could be that I just don’t spend a lot of time online on the weekends, so I don’t track – and I know that when I track my food, I am more conscious about what I eat. I was off work on Thursda... Read more
Working it out... on Wednesday

It’s the middle of the week. Yay. I woke up early, this morning, but fell asleep again, and didn’t end up getting out of bed until 8:30. Too late to bring the dog for a walk, so we missed that this morning. I did, however, walk to work. ... Read more

So I didn’t do much sparking on the weekend, but I was careful with my food intake. It was a pretty busy weekend in terms of getting things done around the house. • I put down the baseboards in the powder room; • I put new floori... Read more

Back. Again. My last blog was Friday, February 13, and I mentioned that I felt myself struggling to stay on track. I knew it was coming, and even fought it for a couple of days, and then I abandoned my plan and that was that for two weeks... Read more
Enough already, when will this cold snap end?

I have had it with the cold weather we've been experiencing in this area. This morning, as I pulled on my extremely warm but extremely heavy winter coat, I realized how much I dislike pulling it on every time I need to go outside. Awful. I wi... Read more

Seems like I have started to veer off track. Yesterday wasn't such a good day for water -- I only had three cups, and I started late in the day. I was late for work, which means I missed the express bus that picks me up just at the c... Read more

So I didn't do any real sparking on the weekend. I also did not drink my water. Not so good. I did, however, manage to control my eating, so I ended up 1 lb down for the week. I'm sure a huge part of that is the water that I drank all week... Read more
Water week ... a success so far!
Thursday, February 05, 2015      0 comments

Well, managed 7 cups of water yesterday, so that was great! Today's goal is to get all 8 cups in, which I am sure I can achieve. Next week's baby step will be to get in 10 minutes of cardio every day -- hopefully the weather will cooperate... Read more

Well, I managed 6 cups of water yesterday! YAY ME! I'm at 3 at the moment, and it's only lunch time, so if I can get to six by end of day, I'll be happy. If I make it higher, it's a bonus! Ate more than the recommended amount, but no... Read more
Water, water... and water...

Well, I won't say that I was unsuccessful in getting in all the water I should have yesterday, because I got in half of the recommended daily intake, which is better than none, which is what I have been consuming in the past month or so. ... Read more

Sheesh. Up and down, up and down, up and down. Can't handle this yo-yo weight any more. Feeling like I need to do something drastic, but I know that the only way to make things work is to start off with baby steps. So here's this wee... Read more

Back again. I lost track of my returns to Sparking a long time ago. No big speech this time about it. though, I'm just going to work as hard as I can to get it done. The last few months of 2014 were a mix of busy, tough, and rough. ... Read more

Happy day 46: Monday Back to work, came home after lunch to check on the dog. He peed at the back door, but I didn't scold him -- he's in a new environment, and he's still learning. Also discovered he's clever. His water bowl is on ... Read more

Sunday, July 27, 2014      2 comments

Happy day 44, Saturday, was an interesting day. Started off with a good breakfast for myself and for the dog, and then after a 45 minute wait (as per dog-feeding instructions from the SPCA), we went off for our morning walk. First ... Read more
