I have been training enumerators for the census down the coast everyday since Wednesday and there were some incidents that I had to report to my supervisor. Also, one of my fellow trainers was vibing me and being rude to the extent that at least... Read more

Bet I got your attention with that one. It all started last night when I went to the gym and couldn't stay because a piercing alarm was going off. Somebody had tried to steal the flat screen TVs. About three hours later another alarm went off. I... Read more

I was inside an office all day including lunch because we had a potluck. I am working for the census right now and I am a field person so I am used to being a relatively free agent out in the world, alone in my car, driving in the sunshine. I re... Read more
I Unintentionally SPARKED Someone!
Friday, March 12, 2010      12 comments

I have been talking to my mom about my success on SparkPeople even though it is slow compared to the 500 calorie a day diet she was doing (she was losing on average .3 pounds a day). She is super concerned about her health because she takes meds... Read more

I am very excited about my weigh-in this morning. For one thing, I get to go find the icon for five pounds lost. Also, I haven't weighed this little (groan) for over a year. My three-year low is 217 after a stint with Weight Watchers so that wil... Read more
A Slippery Slope

I have been looking over my nutrition tracker and trying to be brutally honest. I am not liking what I am seeing. This all came to a head last night when for the first time since I began tracking I did not even enter in all my calories. Also, la... Read more

I got on the scale this morning fearing the worst because of my horrible, terrible, no good, very bad nutrition day on Wednesday. I was pleased to see that I am down .7 pound. This is funny because I did the math and that is the exact average of... Read more

Tonight I made a very nice dinner for my husband-champagne sauteed scallops, pasta, spinach salad with pecans, and garlic bread. I spent about an hour and set the table. Then I looked down and thought hell if I am NOT going to eat this. To make ... Read more
Surprising Weigh-In, Then TERRIBLE Day
Friday, February 26, 2010      2 comments

I woke up at 7 am to weigh myself very nervous that I might have gained back everything I lost. I almost can't believe this is real. Honestly, it almost feels way too easy. In a way, of course, it is not easy at all, and it seems like it takes e... Read more

This week was lackluster on weight loss. In fact, I was up.1 pound on Friday. HOWEVER, my husband wanted me to take my blood pressure this morning for some reason. Some history--I had a physical in late November and I was 133/97 and 238 pounds (... Read more

I was so excited to weigh myself this morning it was like Christmas morning. Visions of under 225 danced in my head. Instead, I am up by .1 pound. I am trying to think of what might be the culprit. I was pretty bad about salt this week. Also, I ... Read more

SO, after three weeks I am back at 229, one pound down from where I started and 2.7 pounds down from last week's quantum leap UP. I scanned my eating last week and I see that I was within my calorie goal everyday. I worked out everyday. I drank ... Read more

I just put in my food on the nutrition tracker and I am right on target for calories, fat, carbs, and protein! That is the first time in my life! I also haven't missed a single day of exercise (and I don't plan to start today!) Meanwhile I am fi... Read more
