March 3 - Weekend slowdown
Sunday, March 03, 2019      2 comments

Yesterday (Saturday) was one of the LAZIEST days I have had in a very long time. I think I logged only 2000 or so steps on my tracker. I managed to shower around 5pm, but just put pajamas back on. My husband I did nothing all day long... he w... Read more
Eye opening day today
Wednesday, February 27, 2019      1 comments

I’ve been back at Spark People most of this month. I think I started again on the first or second. I’ve been able to plan, track and log most days so far. We did travel to see our son and that was more challenging- I know I didn’t track everythi... Read more
Sticking to it
Monday, February 25, 2019      2 comments

I found myself disappointed when I stepped on the scale this morning. It's not "Weigh-In Wednesday" for me, so I don't know why I did it other than I was hoping it would have dropped. It did not. I know I shouldn't pay any attention to it bec... Read more

Sunday Reflection
Sunday, February 10, 2019      3 comments

I've been "refocused" for about 5 days now. I gave myself a goal and I KNOW that I CAN do it. The trick is reminding myself daily that I can. I know this because I've done it before. The problem is that I was successful, but I also gained all... Read more
Something Scary (for me)
Friday, February 08, 2019      3 comments

I’ve had a successful 3 days so far and I’m hoping to finish strong this week. Next week we travel and that’s always a challenge. I made tools to help me this time. I need more in your face stuff. More encouragement. More accountability. ... Read more
Weigh In Wednesday and Repeat
Wednesday, February 06, 2019      0 comments

Today is my “weigh in” day. I used to do weight on Friday but I found that if I’d had success during the week I would blow some of my progress over the weekend. I’d over-reward myself. Not sure if I can trick myself with the Wednesday approach y... Read more
Nine Year Spark Anniversary Next Month
Tuesday, February 05, 2019      0 comments

I've been on and off of Spark People since March 2010. That feels a little crazy when I type it. Nine years. And here I am... again. The first time around I had tremendous success, I battled hard to lose 50 pounds and I did it. But... Read more
Day 17: Do not covet...
Thursday, January 18, 2018      3 comments

Yesterday I had to put myself in check a few times. I had to remind myself not to compare MY journey or progress to anyone else. I had a couple of moments of jealousy and self-depreciation. We decided in the office we would all try to b... Read more
Day 15: Cranky Day
Tuesday, January 16, 2018      1 comments

I'm cranky today. I don't know why. I got plenty of sleep (even overslept) and woke up feeling great but now I'm irritated at everything. Nothing happened - no events to change my tide. I just feel that way. I think now that I'm think... Read more
Day 14: They say Rome wasn't built..
Monday, January 15, 2018      0 comments

They (whoever "they" are) say that Rome wasn't built in a day. I need to remember that when I want immediate results. I spent some time this weekend looking through My Fitness Pal and my weight history over the last two years. Somewhere... Read more

Sunday, January 14, 2018      0 comments

I skipped blogging on Thursday. I thought I would do a "Day 10/11" recap but holy smokes its now Sunday! I've been mostly on track this weekend. I took yesterday off. I tracked but did nothing else. I woke up tired yesterday. I slept po... Read more
Day 9: The Every Day "Why"
Wednesday, January 10, 2018      2 comments

One of the things that I did that may be different this time than the last few times I've tried to get back on track is I truly did think about my "Why." It's easy to say because I want to or because I feel fat, but really... Why? My big... Read more
Day 8: Alternate plans
Tuesday, January 09, 2018      2 comments

Today it rained. Maybe where you are that is no big deal but I’m in SoCal and it’s dry dry dry! My new routine is a 30ish minute walk in the am and then do my workout challenge when I get home. Because it was raining (pretty hard) this mornin... Read more
Day 7: I want to lose vs. I will lose
Monday, January 08, 2018      4 comments

I'm not sure what happened, maybe it was seeing my highest weight ever on the scale, maybe it was none of my clothes fitting anymore - not even the largest sizes, or it could be the way I just feel about myself. I don't think it was one thing, ... Read more
