One day at a time ...
Friday, March 21, 2008      2 comments

What a day today was! Yesterday, I blew it big time, by eating candy that I shouldn't have - a lot too much - PLUS burger and fries. Oh well. Today, as I started to say, was completely the opposite. Okay, I did have more candy (I can't brin... Read more
Starting over - once again!

So, again, I was coasting along, doing okay on diet and really well on exercise. And then, for some reason, I stopped. On the non-Spark part of life, there was added stress - too many goals, not enough time, and not seeing results "quickly... Read more
Good days, bad days - and then there was yesterday!

So, some days (like Feb 29th this year) go PERFECTLY. And some others, like March 1st and 2nd, I can barely work up the enthusiasm to brush my teeth in the morning! Which means I wind up doing the whole emotional eating thing - even though... Read more
I love Feb 29th!

For some reason, yesterday just WORKED! You know those days where everything just happens "right"? Feb 29th, 2008 was one of those for me. Started it by going to the gym and doing 75 minutes of cardio, followed by a good upper body str... Read more
Motivation is a WEIRD thing!

It's funny. I've gone to the gym every single day since Sunday. (Okay, that's only four days, but still ...) I went to the gym this morning, planning to do a half-hour workout. Weighed in (today is the official weigh-in day for my SP-class ... Read more
Phooie? Not so much!

Happy day! I did make it to the gym (despite falling back asleep at 4:45 - the gym opens at 5!), and worked out for 68 minutes today. Not too shabby. Burned up some 800+ calories, too! And since I've just joined the "SP class of Jan 6 - 12"... Read more
And phooie - nothing!

I shouldn't whine. What happens to my weight-loss journey is always going to be a result of the choices I make - or don't make, for that matter. :) I'm trying to stay within my calorie range, but not getting in my workouts - just managed to... Read more
Ha! NOT so blah week!

So there I was, having blown off exercising last week except for one day, and having eaten about 8 meals at restaurants. I was fully expecting to have gained weight when I hit the gym this morning (hmm, it's after midnight, so I guess it wa... Read more
More body changes

It's interesting to me that now that I've done a full week on a VERY tough (for me) workout schedule, I'm still not seeing a proportional weight loss. But I'm certainly FEELING the difference. Tons of energy (I always have been upbeat and e... Read more
Inches, not pounds!

This past week, I've been exercising HARD. Upped my exercise to a minimum of 60 minutes, got in about 6 workouts. Ate a little more than my recommended calorie allowance, but not totally outrageously. Of course, I was naively expecting the ... Read more
Yay! Finally some movement on the scale!

Yesterday, for the second day in a row, I stayed within my calorie allocation, and exercised hard, as usual - I was frustrated at being a couple of pounds ABOVE my starting weight of 208 pounds. Today, when I got to the gym and weighed mys... Read more

Yay! I was very worried that after eating out at lunch and dinner on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I'd have gained a few pounds - I did NOT choose the healthiest options. Yesterday, I made sure to eat within my recommended calorie range. ... Read more
Post-weekend blahs

Oh, well. I learned something more this weekend: I really do have issues when I eat out. :) 3 days of seminars meant I wound up eating out at lunch _and_ dinner all three days. I'll be working out tomorrow (I've got a high-impact dance class sch... Read more
As I said - it doesn't take much!

So there I was, thinking yesterday was a GREAT day - I worked out (even though it wasn't a workout day), I was careful about what I ate, and drank even more water than usual. Weighed myself this morning and I'm UP a pound. Argh. Oh well. M... Read more
Phew! It really doesn't take much!

If you read yesterday's blog post, you know I overdid it the previous couple of days, ballooning from 207 to 211 in just 3 days. Yesterday, I measured every single thing that went into my mouth ... amazing how much I'd been underestimating... Read more
