I'm sitting here waiting to watch the election results and feeling yukky and bloated. I way overdid it today. I was part of clinicals today, and our instructor had candy for all the nursing students (I'm graduate student who is doing my ... Read more

So I started with Spark Coach, but I wasn't staying with it every day. This last week I was off all week, so I exercised and started using the tracker for my food. I still use My Fitness Pal because of the extensive database, but I discovered ... Read more

I started Spark coach today. I need some more accountability and a few bells and whistles to help motivate me. I was going to start WW again, but I have a real issue with paying them $18.95 when I hear that they are paying some celebrity perso... Read more
Going for a goal
Sunday, August 19, 2012      4 comments

So I just passed my 49th birthday a week ago. I started a Fit by Fifty journal on my computer a year ago. And guess where I am today? Exactly where I was a year ago. I looked at my weight chart, and I'm still in the same place. I have varie... Read more
here again

So here I am again in the same place I was last year - I have really been spinning my wheels. I say I want to be accountable - I go through the motions, but I really cheat myself when I'm not totally honest. I can't afford to not be honest - m... Read more

I am such an all or nothing person. I've been half-heartedly doing Weight Watchers. Since they have changed their program, I can no longer figure out their point system with just my regular calculator. Anyway, I've been paying for 2 progra... Read more

Today at work someone noticed my weight loss. I've been waiting for this! I have lost about 10 lbs since August. But what's different this time (because I've been doing this over and over again) is that I'm exercising and have been consistentl... Read more
Goal: Little Black Dress
Monday, October 18, 2010      3 comments

I decided to make a goal today. It's not weight loss. It's to get into a black dress and go dancing. Of course, I want to lose the weight to fit into that dress. So today I picked out some dresses online that I like, I printed them, and I'm ... Read more
Wow - almost 3 months
Monday, October 04, 2010      0 comments

almost 3 months have passed since I did a blog entry. In that 3 months I could have accomplished more, but instead I kept spinning on the same circle - over and over again. The last 2 weeks I have finally picked up the pace. I started reading ... Read more
Joined WW online today
Friday, July 09, 2010      3 comments

so today I rejoined WW online. I have used this in the past, and found it to be very helpful. I actually lost 50 lbs back in 2001, and kept it off for quite awhile. It wasn't until nursing school that I put the weight back on. I wanted to... Read more
Fantastic walk today
Sunday, June 20, 2010      1 comments

Today we went on a really long walk. I probably did 5 miles on the trail around Town Lake in Austin. Really nice, and then blew all my calories at lunch at Pappasitas. But it was worth it. A really nice Father's Day. Now to get ready for the... Read more

I received my acceptance to grad school today. Not sure I can do this - I want to, but not sure I can handle the stress of all of it. I thought writing all the papers I had to write for my bachelor's degree was going to do me in. Just the thoug... Read more

A beginning .....again
Sunday, June 13, 2010      7 comments

I get so discouraged, because I feel like I keep starting this over and over again. I eat well for a time, and I exercise, and then I fall into a period of life where stress and daily responsibilities really bog me down. I find myself stress ... Read more
