Successful Restart Day!
Saturday, December 17, 2016      10 comments

Day 1 of my re-start was a success! I ate only 3 meals and today the scale was down! Yay! My breakfast was "normal" and tracked. My lunch was completely weird...popcorn, fruit snacks, kisses, and pretzels (about 500 calories)...at the movies... Read more

Re-starting today. It seems like a terrible time for a re-start...right before Christmas. Or is it a perfect time? I guess it all depends on your perspective. So far, today, I am on track...for the whole 1.5 hours I have been awake. I weigh... Read more
Pushing Too Hard...Eating Too Much
Wednesday, December 14, 2016      15 comments

Yesterday, I made it through the day on track up until after supper. I tracked breakfast but did not track lunch...though in my mind calculation it was "on track." I think I am pushing myself too hard. I worked some after supper from ho... Read more
Two Surprises

My first day back to work after vaca was not too bad. We had one major incident that I had to deal with; but other than that, it's just a matter of getting caught up. Yay! In weighing in this morning, my weight is back down to pre-vaca we... Read more
Working the Program

Yesterday was another less-than-perfect eating day. I had the GD's all day (and all night the previous night). GD2 begs snacks from me constantly...so it's hard to pass them out to her...and not indulge myself. That was my slippery slope that... Read more
Happy Sunday!

Yesterday was a partially good day. I made it on plan up until about 2:30. Then the snack cravings were too strong...and I gave in. We had gone and gotten our Christmas stuff. We put away all our suitcases and stuff. We made a place in the ... Read more

So, I'm back from vaca. I gained 5 lbs...my eating was extensive. We had a free breakfast buffet everyday...so my breakfast calories were probably 3-5x normal. We often had snacks in the park...and the lunch and dinner portions were also larg... Read more

We toured Magic Kingdom one last time yesterday. We rode a lot of rides with GD. She LOVES the rides. She is all smiles when we are on them. She is good at getting off now, too. There was a time when getting off triggered a major melt-down.... Read more

Yesterday, we toured Epcot. That park is huge! I got in 20,125 steps. GD is doing great walking the parks. It amazes me that her little 4-year-old legs can walk so much. She takes 5 steps for every 2 of mine...so she's REALLY logging the st... Read more
Hollywood Studios!
Wednesday, December 07, 2016      13 comments

Yesterday, we went to Hollywood Studios theme park. We saw the storm troopers march in. Then, we went to the Frozen Sing-Along. As I was sitting next to GD...and my DS was on the other side of her, I must admit, I got a little teary eyed list... Read more
Magic Kingdom Fun!

Yesterday was another great day at Disney! We went to Magic Kingdom for the day. We rode the monorail there. The Polynesian Resort is across the street from our resort, so we walked over there to catch it. It's a bit of a walk...but worth it... Read more

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
Big, Busy Day!

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
Friday, December 02, 2016      11 comments

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
