More about delivered food
Thursday, December 10, 2009      7 comments

I know I'm a total geek, but I've made a google docs spreadsheet for all the food I am supposed to get from eDiets this month (see last blog entry for more info). As I eat a meal, I'll rate it and write comments/descriptions. So anyone who wants... Read more

Tuesday, December 08, 2009      1 comments

I've been having a hard time this Fall with portion control and consistently tracking my food, so I started exploring a bunch of food delivery services. My fantasy is to have a personal chef come to my house and cook healthy, organic, locally gr... Read more
Finding Balance
Friday, December 04, 2009      3 comments

What a wild year this has been. My weight plateaued in February, and although my lifestyle of healthy diet and exercise has been in place most of the time, my motivation has varied as life has thrown me curves. Nonetheless, I held on to my losse... Read more
Vacation and Hallowedding
Tuesday, November 03, 2009      5 comments

I spent the last week at the beach, having a lovely time lazing around. It was a book-a-day vacation, a measurement that means I had a great time with no responsibilities. We did take some nice long walks on the beach, but I did not monitor my e... Read more
Looking back, looking forward

I started doing this a few months ago at the beginning of each month, giving myself a new set of goals for the coming month and trying to reflect on what I did the month before. Not the most exciting reading for someone else, but it's so useful ... Read more

Convention (part 2): traffic tickets & one new habit.
Monday, September 28, 2009      7 comments

Boy, I ended that last blog rather abruptly, didn't I? I think the battery on my laptop gave out in the middle of my posting. Anyway...the rest of my story related to the plateau is that Nancy started running to break hers. It was a bit sad to ... Read more
Convention (part 1)
Sunday, September 27, 2009      5 comments

I'll blog in more depth about the SP convention soon, but I just wanted to talk about one take-away for me from the last couple of days. I have read about sp_Nancy's 9-month plateau, and it's been part of what's kept me at least maintaining... Read more
Mid-month review
Sunday, September 20, 2009      1 comments

Well, I've been working it...but not as much as I'd planned. I'm still giving myself stickers on days I both exercise and eat well, and there are only 8 stickers on my calendar through the 19th of this month. The biggest problem has been travel.... Read more
Goals for September

The beginning of school is always a good kick start for me. After a few months of maintaining and one of total vacationing, I'm ready to start over again with all the dedication of a new effort. By Oct 1, I will be: Back up to 50+ minutes... Read more

I decided a little while ago that my next piece of exercise equipment would be a stationary bicycle. Because my Gazelle has no resistance at all, it stopped giving me a very ... Read more
Fell down, went boom!
Monday, August 24, 2009      5 comments

The first of August, I pinballed my way down the stairs of my house, broke my foot, and bruised and battered myself. I don't know why I'm such a klutz sometimes--I wonder if I have some sort of subconscious self-destructive urge. It's taken... Read more
Looking back at June and on to July
Monday, June 29, 2009      0 comments

June went by way too fast, and I was less than dedicated to my weight loss efforts. Oh, don't get me wrong, I exercised and ate well most of the time, but it turned out that my "off" days came way more often than my "on" days. Every day I try to... Read more
Mission: reduce cholesterol
Wednesday, June 17, 2009      2 comments

Last week, I got a call from the doctor's office telling me that I have high cholesterol. It was a real shock. I knew that my total cholesterol was up last time I had a blood test, but the doctor said that my HDL ("good" cholesterol) was high, s... Read more
New commitment
Monday, June 01, 2009      2 comments

Since I got back from the spa, I've been a little lazy. This weekend, though, I really got it back together. Here's my plan: 1) Put away the scale for a month. The fact that my scale didn't show any movement when I got home from TFS really ... Read more
