Tuesday, September 16, 2014      8 comments

This is a nice streak! Today I achieved 100 days of tracking. I also finished P90X3 on Sunday, and have lost a nice round 20 pounds! Can't stop!... Read more
Broke through the Plateau!
Friday, September 12, 2014      6 comments

We have to listen to our own bodies. While stuck in a rut the past few weeks, this week finally saw the scale move a bit, and also found me sleeping better. For all my good tracking, I do sneak into the peanut butter jar too much. Just a s... Read more
Counteracting the Candy Jar with the Cherry Tomato Bowl!
Thursday, September 04, 2014      2 comments

At work, my desk directly faces a co-workers candy jar. Right now, it's filled to the top with plain and peanut M&Ms, some Reese Peanut Butter Cups and who knows what else. It really doesn't bother me as much any more (I used to grab a hand ful... Read more

I don't have anything big to report today. But I'm in a great mood! Wearing clothes that haven't fit in years (and donating all the ones that are too big to charity immediately) Continuing my daily P90X3 workouts, walking at least 10,000... Read more

LOL, well maybe my old scale was weighing me 2 pounds too light. Dang, and each 1/2 pound loss is SO HARD to make happen! We got the Aria scale. I have it all syn... Read more
Need to change some things up
Tuesday, August 26, 2014      3 comments

I'm not really at a plateau, but things seem to have stalled a bit. I've been doing some reading, and I'm going to try the following: More water, no food after 8:00 PM (even if can have a few more calories for the day) a few extra steps, pushing... Read more
Still hungry today!
Wednesday, August 20, 2014      4 comments

I was hungry all of yesterday, but stayed on plan. Ate an extra table spoon of peanut butter before bed, and still work up hungry. Maybe I need more food, but I'm not quite sure yet. I hate to up my calorie count until I'm at my goal weight. I... Read more

Monday check in
Monday, August 18, 2014      1 comments

After a wild weekend involving out-of-town company, my dad's 92nd birthday at a catfish joint, I think I made it through quite well! The catfish place had grilled chicken and green beans. I avoided the potato and the roll. I don't think a... Read more
More veggies broke the plateau...
Saturday, August 16, 2014      2 comments

My toe wheel plateau was broken by just eating more veggies! I listed to dr Fuhrman on PBS Monday night and decided to just stick with my calories but make more veggie chicest and it Worked!... Read more

Hump day!
Wednesday, August 06, 2014      1 comments

How can this week move so quickly! I'm staying on track with my food choices, and exercise and walking too. The pounds are coming off SO slowly. It must be my 53 year old metabolism, but my pounds are very stubborn pounds. They have b... Read more
So far so good on a Tuesday!
Tuesday, August 05, 2014      2 comments

Happy day, fellow sparkians! I've done well for at least 1/2 the day with my eating. Found lots of reason to walk at work today, so I'm already up to over 6000 steps. Has anyone found that you are in a better mood when eating right and e... Read more

Monday, August 04, 2014      1 comments

FMAV....Ha, that SHOULD be an acronym....because it's so hard! I had to start the day by getting back on the good habit wagon....waking at 5:15 to get my workout in (P90X3), packing my lunch and snacks for work, and making sure I get an ext... Read more

So glad to be home now after 2 weeks away. Glad to say that I was 4 pounds lighter than when I left!! I had to expand my food choices while away, but still tracked every bite and wore my fitbit to try to get my steps in. ... Read more
