Woo Hoo!
Sunday, November 15, 2009      4 comments

I'm giving myself the woo hoo, but the praise goes to God. In two weeks with weight watchers I have lost 7lbs (according to my scale, a little over 5 according to theirs) and --here's the big news--1.5% body fat. Thank you Jesus! The we... Read more
The boring stuff
Saturday, November 14, 2009      2 comments

I work full time--36-40 hours in a grocery store. My hours vary constantly--sometimes I'm there until 1am, sometimes I have to be there at 6am. I am surrounded by food. I get two fifteen minute breaks and one 30 minute break. Because I do no... Read more

Well, yesterday wasn't so hot. I woke up from a nightmare at 2am. Got an email from an old boyfriend with whom I was trying to share the gospel saying that he wouldn't be talking to me again. A friend who's a hairdresser asked me to wake her ... Read more

I'm going to check my weight on my scale every day. My scale also measures body fat and water and I'll check those once a week. Once a month I'm going to check measurements. And, of course, once a week I'll weigh in at Weight Watchers. ... Read more

I didn't eat breakfast yesterday. I went out for lunch with friends. Instead of ordering my favorite meal at the restaurant which is the beer battered deep fried shrimp and mashed potatoes, I ordered a hamburger which comes with french fries,... Read more
My first walk with Zanna
Wednesday, November 04, 2009      1 comments

Went better than I thought it would. She didn't "lunge" or "go" after anyone we met; thankfully there weren't too many people out. But, she did really well. She didn't bark once, her hackles didn't rise, she didn't even bark at the other dogs... Read more

I've studied nutrition for years. Three of my best friends are personal trainers. But, for me the accountability is critical. That's what I love about Sparkpeople; it has ways to track everything from your measurements to exercise, to food. ... Read more
Not much, but something

This morning is one of those rare Texas mornings when it's overcast and not muggy and isn't raining yet. So, I went for a walk. Only 20 minutes at a moderate pace, but it's a beginning. Anything is better than nothing.... Read more

I've become the laziest person in the world. I have a gym membership, but I rarely ever go to the gym. I've been looking at elliptical machines online because it would be easier for me to work out at home, but I simply can't afford them... Read more
Learning to trust

I've actually put on weight since I started with Sparkpeople. This has nothing to do with Sparkpeople, it's my own lack of trust in God's provision. I've gotten better. I no longer become tense, irritable, panicked when I do not have enough m... Read more

I spent the whole morning and early afternoon at the various medical places. Officially I have a sprained neck, tendonitis in my right arm, and possibly three broken fingers on my left hand. I have to go back for further tests for st... Read more
Tai Chi is the bomb!

So very much going on lately. On Tuesday I had my 5th Tai Chi class. I only go once a week. A friend from church teaches the class--most of the students are ladies in their 70's-80's. It's not an intensive class; we're just learning the... Read more
