Checking my Progress
Saturday, December 26, 2009      4 comments

I looked at the "My Reports" section of Spark People today. There are a lot of charts to look at to see how you're doing. I've been tracking food and exercise pretty consistently since the end of August. That's when I decided to really pull i... Read more
Shorter Workouts Help Build Consistency
Friday, December 25, 2009      4 comments

It's not a very Christmas-y Christmas at my house this year. I'm going through emails and thinking about working out. What do I find in my unread Spark emails? This very encouraging thought: Shorter Workouts Help Build Consistency ... Read more
Still working out
Friday, December 25, 2009      4 comments

I'm sticking with my workout challenge. I've done a DVD called Bedtop Yoga the last two mornings. It is easy and relaxing, but definitely is good for flexibility. I think it might be a better program to do before bed though as I could fall ri... Read more

My challenge to myself from yesterday is the 10 minute fitness break. This is the Spark Guy's starting point, and I really need to get back to working out. In the last month I have really lost strength, flexibility and stamina since I haven't ... Read more
A short stay in 240-ville
Monday, December 21, 2009      5 comments

Today's weight was 252. I know there are fluctuations on this journey, so I'm not too worried. I do know how to improve my odds though, and that is by exercising. Today is where I start the 10 minute challenge again. If I can do someth... Read more
Now if only I could do better with exercise...

I've read a few Blogs lately about overeating, going on binges and going crazy on cookies or other treats. So far, that hasn't happened to me this year. I think the most important thing is to use the food tracker. I've been doing that p... Read more

And I have now lost 25 pounds with Spark People. I am so excited about this today. I really wasn't expecting it because this means I have lost 11.5 pounds in one month! This is just unheard of for me. I know I've been sick, and I have been e... Read more
Organic On a Budget
Saturday, December 12, 2009      4 comments

I'm copying this from a Spark People email I got today. I'm always wondering what I should buy organic, and what I don't need to worry about. So here is a good list. I already knew about Apples, but it's hard to buy organic when the regular a... Read more
A new goal for the winter
Friday, December 11, 2009      6 comments

We're having a grey and rainy day in San Diego today. It's peaceful, and nothing like the big wind and rainstorm from Monday. I recently read an entry here where the person talked about walking in the rain. Maybe I will try that this evening.... Read more
I found some motivation!

I had lunch with a co-worker from my old job on Tuesday. I haven't seen her since September 30 which was my last day on the job. I've lost 10 pounds since then(!), and she kept saying how great I looked etc. It helped that I was right off a w... Read more
I think I feel better!
Monday, December 07, 2009      2 comments

I'm feeling that maybe - just maybe - I'm starting to feel better and the antibiotics are helping. I was able to stay up all day for the first time in a long time, and I got a few things accomplished. I really hope I'm turning a corner. ... Read more
Another half pound gone!
Sunday, December 06, 2009      4 comments

I was down a half pound at my weigh-in today. I feel really good about that considering I have been sick and not working out at all this week. My eating has been at the low end or below my calorie range, but I wasn't sure how I would do. I st... Read more
Starting to feel better
Saturday, December 05, 2009      2 comments

I've spent most of the day sleeping, but I'm going to get out and walk in a little bit tonight. I think the antibiotics are working, and hopefully a little fresh air will help me get a good night's sleep tonight. I weigh myself tomorrow ... Read more
So I am actually sick, and I hope soon to be better.
Friday, December 04, 2009      3 comments

I finally went to the Dr. today. I cannot stop sleeping and I feel terrible. It turns out that I have some type of infection and my white blood cell count is way up there. I wonder if this is why I've felt bad for weeks now. So now I'm... Read more
Time to get going again!
Tuesday, December 01, 2009      3 comments

I'm still out of sorts from the trip. It took more out of me than I thought. I finally did some laundry today. Tomorrow is my day to start walking again. Enough is enough of this no activity!... Read more
