Things have been going fairly well, for the most part. Most days I make more good choices than bad. I am THRILLED with my fitbit (although I hope the wireless transmission isn't dangerous; they recommend keeping it on your bra... ) which I bough... Read more
This calorie thing... it works
Friday, October 19, 2012      5 comments

Why do I convince myself that it's OK to overeat? It's so obvious what those extra calories have done to my body (outside and probably in! My circulation is terrible so I don't doubt I have some blocked arteries...) and frankly so EASY to lose w... Read more

Monday was back to work, of course, and I really struggled with my 'grace me guide' goals. It's so easy to launch into bitching about being overworked, my boss being a ... Read more

As I begin my betterment journey, I am keeping a journal (as a virgo I adore blank books-- this one handmade embossed leather from India-- purple of course-- and have a stash ready for just this sort of 'new leaf' which may require a fresh journ... Read more

I read this book www.goodreads.com/book/s
project which was a bestseller a few years ago. A little cheesy, sure, but I really liked it. And it definitely inspired me to get to makin' some lists ... Read more

It's a constant in living a healthy lifestyle: preparation. Buying (and making it convenient to eat) nutritious foods, building in regular time for exercise, and carving out a few minutes or a magnificent hour of "you" time that doesn't include ... Read more
October happenings
Monday, October 01, 2012      6 comments

Well, well, a mighty successful September overall, if I do say so myself. Of course I could have exercised more, and I could have eaten less (always working on it!) but I do feel like I ate BETTER and exercised MORE than usual, and I didn't smok... Read more
Millionth re-commitment

Started the Couch to 5K program officially today after dabbling with my own lackluster schedule of jog/walk interval training. I hurt a little bit :P -- but it was good! Tomorrow the man and I start the 100 push-up challenge in the mo... Read more
Goals for the next month

Wow, it's been ages since I blogged! Yikes. I have been doing fairly well with my program (portion control & staying at least moderately active), but I am feeling like I really need to step it up a notch and work on those things I haven't ... Read more

I've been having a really rough time of things, partly because of my fiance's chronic unemployment and financial woes, partly because of not feeling fulfilled in my life in general. I really dislike my job (though I'm grateful to have one, of co... Read more
Moving Good, Eating Bad
Monday, September 13, 2010      2 comments

Well, the weekend was a struggle as usual... and I haven't been eating nearly enough fruits and veggies. I'm loving the September Hen House challenge, but it's making me realize that unless I make a concerted effort, I'm not getting in all of th... Read more

Well, I certainly didn't attain the goals I set for myself for my birthday, but that's OK and things are still going pretty well. I haven't worked out every day but I've been pretty active (long walk and an awesome frisbee session over the weeke... Read more

Long time no blog... sorry!

Well here I am again, still in exactly the same place I've been for what seems like years here on Spark. I do well for a while and then fall back into bad habits. I'm fighting my body's new "set point" of about 165. Better than 195, sure, b... Read more
