I'm really going for it this week!
Monday, January 26, 2009 0 comments
Today is the second day in a row that I've made it to eight cups of water. I mean business this week! This weight is as good as gone. Today I made a great dinner -- I had asparagus, grilled eggplant and zucchini, and couscous with chickpeas. ... Read more
Trader Joes, I love you!

I went to Trader Joes last night to get some goodies for my kitchen. I like their frozen vegetables -- great quality. I don't always go there because other grocery stores are more conveniently located near me, but I needed something to give me... Read more
Bummer - no weight loss.
Saturday, January 24, 2009 3 comments
Okay, I kind of saw this happening because I've been on the scale almost everyday this week and I did not lose. I was really hoping to be under 200 pounds this week, but it didn't happen. I am not letting it get me down, though. I decided tha... Read more
Just in case it's a gain week. And even if it isn't...

So, the scale is claiming I've gained .4 from last week. I don't officially weigh in until tomorrow, but it's been a scale-obsessed week for me. I've been thinking about how disappointed I'll be if it's a gain week. I've been exercising, eati... Read more

Okay, so my official weigh in day is Saturday, but that stupid scale is there, so I step on it! Yesterday, it claimed I weigh .4 more than I did on Saturday. This morning, I apparently weigh 3.4 pounds more than I did on Saturday. I thought a... Read more
Guess who just signed up for a 5K?
Sunday, January 18, 2009 0 comments
That's right. I did! It's a very popular 5K in Massachusetts, and it's going to be a party atmosphere, so it should be a lot of fun. I just signed up online, and so now I am going to have to step up to the plate and get ready for it. I've st... Read more
Weekly weigh in this morning.

I lost again this week. I've been eating mostly within the SP guidelines and exercising, so it shouldn't be a surprise, but I'm always thinking that maybe something horrible happened and I wouldn't lose, or worse, gain! I've only stepped on th... Read more
Ugh! Rough day yesterday!

I didn't realize it until I got home, but I was so tired! Two people at work said I looked tired, but I didn't feel it until I got home. I was so tired, I could barely write out checks to pay bills. I felt a little guilty, but I didn't walk y... Read more
I feel great about how I'm doing.

I really do. Today I walked home from work (about a mile and a half of hilly pavement) and I thought about how I looked. I looked active! I made myself a healthy dinner, had a healthy snack, and did my bootcamp routine. I am really proud tod... Read more
I am my own worst competition.
Sunday, January 11, 2009 0 comments
I love competing with myself. That's one of the great things about the SparkStreaks -- can I keep them going? So far, I'm doing pretty good, especially with the walking and listening to a motivational song. On days when I can't (or won't) go ... Read more
I lost my first five pounds. (And one ounce!)
Saturday, January 10, 2009 2 comments
That's right. It's gone. And it isn't coming back. No returns, pounds! Seriously, today is my "official" weigh in day. I was just about to put a piece of cereal in my mouth when I remembered I needed to weigh in. (So much for the scale in ... Read more

My new scale is in a strategically evil place -- by the refrigerator. That means I look at it when I go in the kitchen. Although I have been able to forget about its presence a bit, it's there, a small, electronic reminder to choose wisely. O... Read more
Getting back into exercise
Thursday, January 08, 2009 1 comments
I am one of those people who really likes to work out. I don't know why I stop exercising -- it's laziness, really. I actually completed two half-marathons several years ago -- what a great experience that was. So here I am, much heavier than... Read more
Motivational Songs - Thank Apple for the iPod!
Wednesday, January 07, 2009 2 comments
I love my iPod. I always say that it was the best gift my husband ever gave me. He can't top that one with anything. I use it when I exercise -- there's nothing like walking or running to some butt-kicking music. Right now I have a thirty mi... Read more
