Hey fellow sparkers, I was so motivated when I signed up for this site and tracking food and exercise were vital. I must start again since the lagging of logging in and tracking has been equivalent to the lagging of exercise and eating well. I... Read more

I have been very upset from work events. I was assigned a new group and a new desk location. I do not deal with change well. Anyway, I was quite angry at my boss and some of my co-workers during this time. It probably also had to deal with my ho... Read more

Wednesday, July 29, 2009      5 comments

I was asked why I saw a nutritionist and I thought I would talk about nutritionist/dieticians/diet doctors etc. I have had many professional opinions over the years. I have always been overweight and my parents were concerned when I was a kid ... Read more
Dietician appointment

I thought I was going to be measured and weighed and then drilled about my eating habits. I don't know if I was disappointed by this appointment or not since it wasn't what I expected. She loved getting the printed food logs from Sparkpeople. Sh... Read more

I went to a flea market yesterday that is about 2 miles walking to-from the car. As I walk to each vendor, I acquire things and most are carried by my husband until there is an abundance and then I am asked to carry some things. If I was prepare... Read more

I have never had luck with pedometers. I could never measure my stride and I would count my steps and it wouldn't be the count measured. I really wanted to join the groups for 10000 steps/day, so I decided to break down and buy Leslie Sansone's ... Read more

I have not had this occurrence until now and I don't know how to handle it! In my 20s, I lost over 100 lbs in 12 months with exercise and diet. I had a coworker training for a body building competition and she helped me with my diet. Anyway, as ... Read more

I am back to my exercise thanks to 4 days away from work. I am not 100 %, but I am doing a modified workout so I don't re-injure the knees. I did 30 minutes on Wii fit yesterday morning and then I purchased a medicine (weighted) ball at Wal-mart... Read more

Thanks to all who have commented on my previous blog post. I will try the things mentioned. I believe that I just pushed too hard when I did the extended squats on Wii Active. You are supposed to squat and hold for 45 seconds and you do two of t... Read more

I am very frustrated since I have had this knee pain for quite some time and I can't do my Wii Active 30 day challenge. I don't want to make the pain worse, so I want to take a longer break than I would usually. In order to get some exercise, I ... Read more

I am moving along on my 30 day challenge with EA sports Active (for the Wii). Two days ago, I was doing the workout and they have an exercise that is a squat held for 45 seconds. Two of them! I guess I am too old and have RA in my knees, because... Read more

Do any of you have recommendations? I don't want hypnotherapy. I just want encouragement to put down the bad food and start exercising. I just feel like I am falling off the wagon every day and then I have every intention to do better the next m... Read more
