Something just a little different ...

Today is day 2 of this challenge. I'm assuming my weight is still the same (hopefully NOT up, since I only walked on Sunday) - I'll find out when I get to the gym in a few minutes. What's different? Well, I normally work out first thing in ... Read more
And we start the challenge - with a GOAL
Sunday, June 01, 2008      4 comments

Goal: Move that body for 60 minutes, 5 times a week. (Yes, TikkaGirl, I decided you were right - that is _definitely_ a goal I want to aim for!) Why that goal? Mostly because although I love going to the gym, I usually wind up way overdoi... Read more
Weighing in again ...

Hey, it WAS true! I'm at 210 pounds today. So, I'm moving that ticker and claiming that weight. Did a light workout - well, a medium-hard one: started out easy on the bike, then graduated into a fairly challenging though not all-out session... Read more
3 pounds? Yay!

Went to the gym. Weighed in. Stepped OFF the scale and weighed myself again. And a third time. Yep. I apparently weighed 210 pounds when I went into the gym. I'd had my little Access bar for fuel, and drunk a glass (that's TWO 8-oz cups in... Read more
Off to the races ...

Heh. It's strange, somehow, just seeing the sunshine makes me all optimistic again. There's definitely some aspect of SAD involved in how motivated I am on a sunny day versus on a blah day. Today, the sun is shining. And so am I. D... Read more
Ugh! It's all too true!

Yep. My guess was right on the money: I weigh 215 pounds as of this morning. Which means, even to just get back to my "starting weight" (did you know SP won't let you "save changes" to your SparkPage if you weigh more today than you did ... Read more
Frustration. Denial. Acceptance. Determination.

Right. If you are what you eat, then maybe I'm a mix of the following: too much bread, a lot of cheese, some mangoes and tangerines, lots of red meat, a variety of veggies, a TON of potatoes, and every bit of all that topped with oodles... Read more
Persistence - does it always pay off?
Thursday, May 15, 2008      2 comments

Some days I just wonder: what's the POINT???? Today is one of those days when I feel just like Boris Badenov (of Rocky and Bullwinkle fame) must've done when he realised that, despite the most carefully laid plans, "moose and sqvirrel" had ... Read more
Jenna, I'll Miss You
Tuesday, May 13, 2008      5 comments

Not all of you know Jenna. I didn't know her before I joined SparkPeople, either. A fellow Canadian, and a tremendous success story in every aspect of her life, she was one of the first to reach out to me when I was new here and whining ab... Read more

Hmm. The scales at the gym this morning said that I weigh 210 lbs today. Was that a real loss or just water weight? I don't know. I'm changing my ticker, though, and will change it back up if this was just a blip. And if I'm lucky, it was YESTER... Read more
Bleah! Once a week doesn't work for me!
Monday, May 05, 2008      2 comments

Having read a lot of posts and articles recommending a weekly weigh-in over a daily weigh-in, I decided it might be something to try, as I was getting a little obsessive over the numbers on the scale. (Yes, I'm a trifle competitive). That ... Read more
Weights work!
Saturday, April 19, 2008      2 comments

Hmm - I said I was going to be back into weight lifting immediately. That didn't happen. For another four days, I stayed with the cardio/rest routine. Finally, on Wednesday, I did break that routine: did 30 minutes of cardio, then 25 minute... Read more
Back to strength training
Thursday, April 10, 2008      1 comments

I've been really resisting resistance training this time around. I do it off and on, but not seriously. Mostly because at present I do not belong to a "real" gym, so don't have access to a squat cage. My little in-condo-building gym only has a l... Read more

I have decided that my "treats" and rewards are no longer going to be food-related. For now, it's clothing. That may change - I can sense a vacation coming up this fall. :) Anyway, yesterday afternoon, I _did_ go out and find a consignment ... Read more
Amazing what happens when you go with the flow.

This is one of those weird days that seems to bode not-so-good, but then winds up being amazing! First, I overslept - woke up in the middle of the night and read for a couple of hours. Finally woke up just before 8 - and the gym in my build... Read more
