Epiphany--It's Not About Losing Weight
Thursday, February 14, 2008      3 comments

Well, as I thought might happen, I gained back about 2lbs of last week's 4 lb loss--I always artificially lose about 2lbs of water right around my period and then it comes back. So I'm back at 164...which is fine. I've been in the 60's so long, ... Read more
The Way I spent my Sunday...
Sunday, February 10, 2008      0 comments

After spending *my* two hours at the gym, I had to take my daughter to the "Chocolate World Expo" at the mall where I'm proud to say that all I purchased was two new varieties of peanut butter (one with bananas and raisins, no sugar!). Then... Read more
An Overwhelming Sense of Alibi
Saturday, February 09, 2008      2 comments

Title for my BNL Buddies...it's really more an explanation than an alibi, but I couldn't resist. Okay, 6 days of exercise and I finally broke the plateau. Lose 4 lbs in a week. I'll believe that because 1) tracking my food was eye-opening a... Read more
Almost at my lowest since 2001
Friday, February 08, 2008      1 comments

So I'm 163.75 as of the morning on my home scale, 161 on the scale at the gym. The last time I was 163 was a period of euphoria back in June 2006, and I was there for about 5 minutes. Once I get under 163, it's the thinnest I've been since fall ... Read more
Finally set up on Fitlinxx!
Friday, February 08, 2008      0 comments

It's not easy, I gotta tell you! The first appointment I'd made, they cancelled, telling me that they don't know *why* they'd made that appointment because the trainer was on vacation. Then yesterday, they call me an hour before my rescheduled a... Read more
Dawn had a little lamb...and a lotta fat!
Wednesday, February 06, 2008      1 comments

I had some Trader Joe's Seasoned Rack of Lamb in the fridge and my son claimed he was starving so I made it for him. And he left some, so I ate it, figuring I ate about 60z (or 2 servings of the stuff). Then I looked at the numbers. Stupid ... Read more
Ellipticals and KFC
Monday, February 04, 2008      1 comments

Well, for once I actually put a plan into action instead of working it out, writing it down and just ignoring it. I decided that the best time for me to work out is before work since after work, I'm either exhausted or need to spend time wi... Read more
What I love...

about my new health club, which I just joined today. In no particular order: 1) My friend Gaylboard (on here) belongs so one day we might have a workout date together--pain loves company! 2) It's brand-spanking new and immaculate. ... Read more
Small Setback, No Biggie
Sunday, February 03, 2008      1 comments

Apparently, the JCC-Y, the health club I'm going to join today, can't set me up on Fitlinxx till Thursday. That's the program that evaluates my performance on the weight machines, tells me if I'm completing full range of motion, sets up my seat ... Read more
Really Impressive!
Saturday, February 02, 2008      2 comments

I'm really impressed with how friendly everyone has been on the site so far, and just how many SparkTeams there are. I tried to get my daughter interested; she's 13 and could use some exercise and healthy eating motivation, at the very least. I ... Read more
Up to this point...

I've been blogging elsewhere and wanted to have a record of all my health-related blog posts in one area, so here goes... CARBS ARE THE DEVIL, 10/13/07: Yeah, it's another one of those "I'm trying to improve myself from the inside out"... Read more
