More challenges!
Saturday, April 14, 2012      7 comments

In the Spring 5% challenge, I stayed the same weight 2 weeks in a row. This week, I gained a pound. BUT – the non-scale victory was that I was able to put on a pair of pants yesterday and they were COMFORTABLE. The last time I wore them, they we... Read more
Notes on the Spring 5% Challenge
Tuesday, March 27, 2012      3 comments

I’ve been doing this challenge for a little more than a week. The idea of the challenge is to lose 5% of one’s body weight in 8 weeks. Weigh-in is Saturday, at the latest, and I weighed in a couple days early, because I was thinking about it. I ... Read more
Challenges
Sunday, March 11, 2012      1 comments

I have signed up for lots of challenges. Just to see how much I can juggle. Actually, it’s not so bad, as they sort of dovetail into each other. That happens, sometimes. I started participating in a “No Fake Sugar, No Real Sugar” chall... Read more

January 10 update
Tuesday, January 10, 2012      3 comments

One of my goals for this year is to eat "clean" (less processed foods, no preservatives). I started out with a plan from the January 2012 Oxygen plan, but quickly veered off from it, using the plan as a guideline only. You can read more about it... Read more
It's almost a New Year
Wednesday, December 28, 2011      3 comments

I haven't been very faithful to tracking or anything else in November and December. It's a busy time of year! I have joined the Official January Jumpstart Workout Challenge and plan to start January 1, along with most of the participants. ... Read more
Happy Holidays!
Saturday, December 24, 2011      0 comments

There has been a diatribe going around Facebook declaring people will only wish each other a merry Christmas, as that is what THEY celebrate. While I celebrate Christmas, too, I don't want to make those who celebrate other holidays in December f... Read more
Where does the time go?
Saturday, December 17, 2011      1 comments

Gosh, it's already a week before Christmas Eve. It's also my last day of work before vacation. And I really should be sleeping. But I was lying awake and feeling a sore throat. I took some apple cider vinegar mixed with honey - usually that help... Read more
Hot Chocolate Walk
Sunday, December 04, 2011      6 comments

Northampton, MA does an annual Hot Chocolate Run (and walk) to benefit Safe Passage, an agency that helps victims of domestic violence. I signed up for the 2 mile walk (the other option was a 5K run), knowing the event would be held regardl... Read more
A different goal
Wednesday, November 30, 2011      5 comments

I have been lax about blogging here on Spark People - or doing much of anything else on here - during the month of November. That is the month I do National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The goal is to write 50,000 words in one month. Yesterd... Read more
Lessons from a storm
Thursday, November 03, 2011      7 comments

Much of the northeast of the US got hit hard last weekend. While snow is not unheard of in October in New England, two feet is very unusual (my town got about a foot, but some towns got up to two feet). Heavy, wet snow knocked down tree branches... Read more
Rays of Hope
Wednesday, October 26, 2011      5 comments

On Sunday, I participated in the Rays of Hope Walk Toward the Cure. I had a choice of a 2-mile walk or a 3-mile walk. I chose the 3-mile walk. I had to park in a public lot away from the park where the walk began and ended (the lot next to the p... Read more
Halloween!
Sunday, October 23, 2011      6 comments

Halloween is a fun holiday. It doesn't have unrealistic expectations surrounding it. Yesterday, my town held a Pumpkinfest. It didn't have many pumpkins, due to the flooding we had back in late August, but it sure did draw a crowd! The... Read more
Lifestyle change
Saturday, October 22, 2011      5 comments

For me, a lifestyle change is more than eating better and exercising more. Sure, incorporating the Y into my weekly routine is part of the change. And so is taking more care in planning my meals and making conscious food choices in my home and o... Read more
