So - my husband turned 50 earlier this month, and my extremely generous sister in law sent him two lobster tails, and a quart of Lobster Bisque. Trying with my full might to track everything, I went to the site she got them from to find the nut... Read more

Not sure what happened today - just kinda fell of the wagon. Not that I made horrible choices, but I just didn't feel like tracking today. It's cold , and I'm tired of being cold. So, what am I going to do about it. I had one bad day -... Read more

So - I looked back on my last couple days of blogs, and journal. It seems like I TRIED to be positive, but somewhere lerching in the background was the voice that is always with me saying "why bother - your going to fail anyway". But then I go... Read more

Does 1 lb count?

Very slight encouragement - 1 lb. I'll take it at this point. My 2010 resolution is to do what they say - stay OFF the scale. Use the measurement as how I feel - how my clothes feel - how much more energy do I have. Leaving for a cru... Read more

Treadmills down - not a good thing
Monday, March 02, 2009      0 comments

My treadmill starting 'slipping' the other day - so I used the lubricant that I was told to use on it to help this problem - it didn't help. It's slipping so bad now, I can't use it for fear of falling off. I can't believe how totally dependen... Read more

So - I've never "blogged" before, and really don't know what I'm doing. So please be patient. I've never been fit & healthy before either - so I need to be patient with myself for that one! I started SparkPeople on 1/7, and now being 2/23... Read more
