Got my walk in early today, and that helped

I walked over to see my mom this morning, instead of driving, a mile and a half each way. I don't have time to do that every time I go, because I'm over there 3-4 times a day and that's over an hour round-trip, but when I have time it's a n... Read more
Long day!

I had two memorial services to go to (both with food after) and a lot of old friends to see, and it was a long and stressful day overall. Successes are that I avoided the luncheon after the first service and the goodies after the second ser... Read more

This week, I'll be weighing in on a different scale than usual, so my weight may not reflect reality. If it's lower, great, but then those phantom pounds may come back on when I weigh on my own scale. So I really don't want to focus on that thi... Read more

Such a challenging week! My mom had a stroke on Friday, didn't call to tell us until Sunday, and I flew to Ohio Monday to be with her and oversee her care. I'm staying alone in her apartment while she's at the care facility. No family to co... Read more

Every week during the 5% Fall Challenge, I've been making a list of NSVs the night before weighing in. It has really been helping counteract disappointment at the scale. I feel like I don't have much to say this week, but here goes: - ... Read more

Oh my goodness, I am ready for this week to be over. I don't know why I'm so tired, and I just never quite got my act together to plan meals. I've stayed within my calorie range, logged it on on SP, and made overall healthy choices, BUT - I've h... Read more
Wednesday already?

This week is flying by and I haven't paid as much attention to the challenge as I mean to. I've still measured and journalled everything, and I got my fitness minutes in every day but one, but I just don't feel as focused as I did the first... Read more

Wrapping up week 2 of the 5% Fall Challenge, and, in advance of tomorrow's weigh-on, I want to take note of what has gone well this week - in case the scale doesn't reflect it. ... Read more

Coming up on the end of the second week of the 5% Fall Challenge, and I have yet to feel deprived or unmotivated. I've met my fitness commitment and my LTGL challenge daily, and it hasn't been toooo much of a stretch. Tomorrow I'll make a new... Read more

I posted this on the community feed but I wanted to record it here so I can look back when I need a NSV. Today is TMobile Tuesday, and they gave away a $2 gift card to BR. I checked the nutrition information on the flavor I wanted before I ... Read more

It was a super busy day, and it started to get dark and I realized I hadn't gotten in my fitness minutes. I was ready to just sit, but thanks to my team commitment I hauled myself out of the house, put on one of my favorite podcasts, and th... Read more
The scale wasn't as kind as I would have liked, but that's ok

So I worked really hard this past week and ended up with 0.4 pounds lost. Bleh. Thank goodness I wrote down all my NSVs for the week last night, in preparation for such an occurrence. I need to do that EVERY week, because this is going to be a l... Read more
NSVs for the week
Friday, October 11, 2019      9 comments

Tonight ends Week 1 of the 5% Fall Challenge. I feel really great about how the week went, but I know that if the scale doesn't show any progress tomorrow I will tend to forget all that I've accomplished, so I want to write it down before I... Read more
