Vacation and Back to It!

We made it to Sunny Florida! Amazing that you can leave Ohio at 50 degrees and 1.5 hours later be in Florida at 75 degrees. Love it! Everything went well yesterday. I left the house just as I wanted for DD1's house-sitting...just did n... Read more

Today is 80 days of logging in to Spark, writing a blog, and encouraging SP friends. That number is significant. I'm a numbers person...so statistics and numbers strike a cord with me. Maybe that is why SP helps me so much. Tracking my calor... Read more
Recovering after a Fall

Hmmm...still struggling. This is what happens. I do well with a new program...until I fall off...then I have a hard time getting back on and, most of all, staying on. So, I guess I have to either constantly start a "new" program every time I ... Read more

I made it through the day in range yesterday, yay! I had two major temptations. At lunch, a co-worker bought me a cookie at Panera (they have like 480 calories!). They are really good. I thanked her and told her I would have it for my 3 o'cl... Read more

Sad to say, last night, I had my first binge in awhile...it's been about 75 days. Why did I binge? 3 of 4 factors of HALT came into play...I wasn't hungry...but I was anxious, lonely, and tired. I was home alone as DH had left for work...work... Read more

I accomplished my goal of 10,000 steps for the day yesterday...yay! Glad I had a goal day challenge to push me along! Anytime I get my steps, it's an effort. The harder I work at work, the fewer steps I get. My job is all data input/output a... Read more

Yesterday came with an unexpected surprise...DH is sick. He has the flu or something...aches, sore throat, congestion, cough...he's down for the count currently. So, we did not do our Christmas decorating as I thought we would. He slept most ... Read more
Weathered the Rough Day

Yesterday was a rough/stressful day. I had the GD's and they were grumpy! The little one, who usually naps really well, only took a 40-minute nap and then was tired and grumpy. The 3-year-old did lay down for nap time but never slept. Once D... Read more

I went Black Friday shopping with DD1. We did great! I'm all done except for 2 gift cards! Whew! And woo hoo! We got some really good deals. I wasn't sold on going out this year...imagined massive crowds. But we didn't go out until 10:30 ... Read more

Plan A Eating on a Plan B Day!
Wednesday, November 23, 2016      8 comments

I had a good, on-plan-with-my-eating day. My plans kept changing throughout the day with different events that took place. DH had a seizure before I left for work, so I had to stay and oversee his recovery on that. Then, when I was finally on... Read more
