I'm happy to report faithfully following my challenges--I am participating in several that seem to support each other, more or less. The good thing is they keep me planning and tracking what is going into my mouth and how much I am moving my bo... Read more

We had the "Welcome back, Students" fair going on at my school all day, where we're manning tables showing them where their classes are located and various businesses and restaurants are there giving us all free food. I'm as bad as the students... Read more
For a healthful, fun Labor Day, what will you do?

It's the last fun "eating" holiday of the summer, so most of us will celebrate with some fun eating. The Bridal shower I attended yesterday taught me that for sure without some fore thought, we are more likely to fall into some really bad old h... Read more
I ran 25 minutes straight -- WooHoo!

Actually I slow-jogged 25 minutes, but to go from just walking to jogging that long in only 4 weeks is pretty good! There is an SP article featured today about the value of playing music when we're exercising. I know it made a big difference f... Read more

I knew I had to take a friend from out of town to dinner tonight--no time to cook, school meetings all day. Besides I had a plan even though his favorite food is italian, I was going to order something I liked but bring 1/2 home. Well, I boxed... Read more

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 2 comments
Today was the first day of our "Back to school seminars"--all day meetings. What a way to begin a job in which you very rarely get to sit down. Anyway, I got up early cause it was a jog/walk day and I wasn't going to miss it. I came back, ate... Read more

Well, I'll be... I've been doing the walk/jog program for 4 weeks--faithfully, no skimping , and now here in the middle of week 5 we were to run 20 minutes straight--no stopping to walk. "Isn't that rushing things a bit?" I whined. "I don't... Read more
Progress Report: You Sparkers were right!

End of my second week as a Sparker After being downright discouraged by my lack of weight loss (although I tried to laugh it off), I can finally say that I lost a pound. But that's only half the story: what I think is making the differenc... Read more
There's more progress to look at than the scale.
Saturday, August 20, 2011 5 comments
I just realized that even though the scale hasn't budged (I don't think it has, actually I've stopped looking), I have attained some really important milestones. 1) I'm staying with this program, and haven't gotten tired of it; 2) I'm i... Read more

After 1 1/2 weeks on the Spark program, zealously tracking my meals (staying within or just under calories, etc.), adding to my exercise almost to the point of injury (my right knee is starting to ache), reading articles and blogs and feeling so... Read more
