On mindfulness... and losing 3 lbs
Thursday, May 06, 2010      1 comments

I'm off to a good start. The scale showed that I lost 3 pounds as of this morning. Honestly, I was surprised - the "only" change I made was tracking my food this week. By paying attention to what I'm eating and checking the calorie and fat co... Read more
Paying Attention
Tuesday, May 04, 2010      0 comments

I haven't been paying attention lately... I've been relaxed when it comes to food. The boyz are now in soccer and little league, so most nights and weekends are running from work/school to the field, with little time to stop and cook a m... Read more

I didn't do an annual holiday letter this year. I started it many times, but couldn't find a way to really address what this year has meant to me. It started out with several milestones- a 2 week trip to Europe, the 10 year anniversary of my d... Read more
Stay away from mini sirloin burgers!

Cute - check. Yummy - check. Deadly - check! Was I surprised when I went to the Jack in the Box website today to look up the nutritional value for the 3 mini sirloin burgers I had yesterday at a crawfish boil b/c I'm allergic to mudbugs. ... Read more

It's been a year! I'm back -- mostly to support my friend Christine on her quest to lose 41 lbs before she turns 41 in the fall. I figure I'll be her moral support and do a little "sparking" while I'm here. Lord knows I need to get back on th... Read more
Dang, how long has it been...

I didn't mean to stay away from SparkPeople for so long. I was doing good, slowly but surely. It took 6 months, but I lost 10 lbs. The past 6 months, I've kept it off - despite being surrounded by candy for Halloween, Christmas, Valentines, E... Read more
Almost half way

My plan was at first to get it over with as quickly as possible. Lose 2 pounds every week so 20 would be gone in 10 weeks. Well... Now my plan is slow and steady. A little too slow at times to keep me encouraged, but I really feel like I've ... Read more

I started my water goal one week ago and managed to drink 8 cups of water every day except Sat and Sun. It was awesome! I thought the weekend would be easy, but it was the opposite. I guess bc I wasn't sitting at my desk looking at my big cup... Read more
This is not a game, this is my life.

How do I make this real for myself? The cookie dough, the cupcakes, not drinking enuf water, eating too much pasta and rice WILL turn into fat on my body. For some reason I'm still playing games with myself as I put the chocolate in my mouth.... Read more

"All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast" John Gunther I chose this because it makes me smile. It's kind of a silly, simple thing to say that ALL happiness depends on breakfast! But it also reminds me to slow down in the morning ... Read more
1 step back, 2 steps forward!
Monday, June 11, 2007      1 comments

I read that somewhere recently. I like it so much better. I'm basically an optomistic person, so 1 step back, 2 steps forward fits my outlook better. Yes, lost the 5 lbs. Gained it back. Lost it again once I started paying attention again -... Read more
One step forward, one step back?
Monday, June 04, 2007      1 comments

Well. May was wasted. What happened to it anyway? I basically "was too busy" for Spark People all month, and my thighs and hips and waist paid for it! After losing 5 lbs, I gained most of it back. For some reason, what I lost didn't feel "re... Read more
New Reward List
Thursday, May 10, 2007      1 comments

This reward list really works for me. It motivates me internally to reach my goals. I chose 2 lbs at a time b/c those 2 lbs weekly are really HARD and I was starting to give up. Now I've found a way to make it a little competitive and fun! ... Read more
