in a stall
Tuesday, December 22, 2009      2 comments

ha, ha, not a manger, but a stall! Bad joke, but it's work, sleep, daze, oops, what time is it? crap! work, sleep -- I'm fighting off some sort of yuk, hoping not to go on the cruise with it. If there is time for exercise, I've used it to daze, ... Read more

I feel like I've ben hovering around the same weight area, trying to get the scale moving in the right direction again. My MD appointment was yesterday. The # on my ticker won't change, because that's where I'm officially at, but that is down 8 ... Read more

It's nippy this morning -- even in Florida (though I know that a morning temp of 53 degrees does NOT compare!) -- I pull out a suit and think, wouldn't it be nice if these pants fit AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I can wear them without embarrassment... Read more

I can create beautiful and sensible exercise plans --- and then life gets in the way. Yesterday is was physical limitations and extended errands. I got in a smattering of muscle work before getting nauseous and dizzy (the dizzy thing seemed to c... Read more

I am using the 4th calendar (in the 4th year of) tracking weight and exercise -- It has been disheartening to see myself at the same place in August in different years. This year (thanks to getting thryoid assist) the calendar already looks much... Read more

I thought I would have gained weight with the appetite increase before this recent crud that I've got, but no, my weight went down. Now that my body is responding normally, my focus is finding the success formula for consistent progress (and I s... Read more
hurdles and food
Thursday, November 05, 2009      1 comments

yesterday I was only interested in eating, but every time I ate, cramping was engaged. After getting friendly with Pepto-bismal, this has subsided as has the constant urge to eat. This gave me time to reflect. I don't use the nutrition calculato... Read more
off track, on track, here, not here

I got off track for a good 5 days, after some trouble with organizational stuff. When my daughter's malaise was diagnosed as flu, I was having a low energy day. I went and got my flu shot and got foods from the grocery store and then veered way ... Read more

Thank-you! Thanks for the comments on my blog! I had a wonderful effect. I followed through with my 10 minutes of aerobics at work (close the door, put on music and just move) and got determined -- I did 30 minutes of yoga at 5:50 this morning. ... Read more
trying to figure it out
Monday, October 05, 2009      5 comments

I have scheduled myself to exercise right after my kid gets on the bus (5:45 am) and this morning I finally did it. I still have to compromise with time, but I got in a 30 minute minimum of aerobics by 6:20 am! I have to prepare for our symphony... Read more

Saturday, September 26, 2009      2 comments

The Mediterranean diet favors healthy fat with every meal (olives, olive oil, nuts, seeds, dark chocolate and avocado) and then keeps the protien focus on chicken and fish with some dairy and soy if preferred -- there have been two supports for ... Read more

My weight issues have probably been with me since age 14, but there were ups and downs. Starvation and excessive walking as a student in France worked, but somewhere early in my marriage I ballooned up to size 22. Got it under control, but I was... Read more

I have a green pair of pants that I have worn with an intentionally long shirt, IF I could wear them at all. Now the are loose WITH a pin in the waistband. Something is happening. Something good. I need my intensive exercise and it will ha... Read more

I enjoy having the feed of fitness minutes on my spark page -- though I liked it on the main page, I check it because it's a yeah I'VE DONE THAT reality. I see that I have a streak of minimal exercise and it is changing that start-stop-start aga... Read more
Jumping in
Tuesday, August 04, 2009      1 comments

I was talking to my sister and it seems I need to blog more to get more social support from the spark people site. I use the fitness tracker more than the nutrition tracker, but I'll look into some of the changes that will make it easier to use ... Read more
