I had a nice Christmas Day with my husband, kids, mom, sister, niece and nephew. I made a big ole messy lasagne. I would love to learn the secret to making it in a way that comes out of the pan. I will try other techniques than the seat-of-yo... Read more
Got a little cold.

I woke up yesterday with a bit of sore throat and proceeded to sneeze the day away along with a runny nose. Went to bed with nighttime cold meds and woke up with more cold. I'm making chicken soup today. I'm making my own recipe. I'm def... Read more
Weight coming off

My Wii Fit says I'm down a pound or so. I can tell you what I'm doing that appears to be working. I am drinking my water. I feel like I am in a swimming pool I drink it so much! I am drinking from 6-10 cups a day. I am taking a lot of restr... Read more

I haven't felt motivated to write a blog for a while, but that's not to say I'm not working my plan or have abandoned SparkPeople. I still log in every day. I still check my friend feed to see what my peeps are up to on their blogs and status ... Read more

Something that upsets my program is dispair. I feel like I'm making so many good choices and yet the scales don't move, I then get a bit blue. When I'm blue over lack of progress, I find myself not tracking, eating more non-Spark foods, skimpi... Read more
Feel like I'm making progress

For the longest time, I felt like my weight just wouldn't come off. My scales just wouldn't budge no matter what. When I started doing my Wii Fit activities, one of the things I do is have a body check daily including weight, and according to ... Read more
Did very well today.

I made a personal commitment to do a better job of tracking this week as I have been off the tracking for a while. I would possible write down breakfast, but by the end of the day...no tracking. It's a problem to track when you eat a lot of ho... Read more
Need inspiration about "freggies"

This is not the greatest season for fresh veggies, and I am not crazy about canned or frozen ones. I do use canned tomatoes and tomato products a lot making soup, spaghetti sauce, chili, and such. I buy bags of salad with the best of intention... Read more
Fun Saturday with Wii Fit
Saturday, December 08, 2012      8 comments

I have been the only one that used the Wii Fit until today. Yesterday I started doing an obstacle course on it and it was really fun. You get a sweat on and aren't bothered because the challenge is so compelling. Last night I told my husband ... Read more
Not very faithful to streaks and challenges
Friday, December 07, 2012      7 comments

I sign on for different challenges at different teams' pages. I am plain ole not faithful to these challenges! I said I'd work out for 30 minutes every day. These days I do about 20 minutes not including sporadic NEAT moving that I am incorpo... Read more

Hubby and I went to a job fair and had a good interview. We were feeling so positive about the experience. We recieved an email today that said that company is no longer considering us and it's because of my references. I have a former superv... Read more
Doing pretty well with program
Wednesday, December 05, 2012      7 comments

I need to think of my health and fitness activities as not a program but a lifestyle, but I still call it a program--better than a diet! Got in adequate sleep last night and didn't snack on ice cream or anything, just my sugar-free cocoa ... Read more

Hubby and I are back from our whirlwind trip to Atlanta for the job fair we have been anticipating for quite a while. We did have one really good interview, but there were not many schools there and other than the one really good interview, the... Read more
Doing NEAT things.
Saturday, December 01, 2012      6 comments

Read a blog by a gal named Frauching on the subject of NEAT, which is an acronym that stands for Non-exercise Activity Thermogenesis, or activities we do beyond working out. Some people (myself included) tend to be extremely sedentary when not ... Read more
Quick update
Thursday, November 29, 2012      7 comments

I'm keeping on keeping on. I have been very much in control of my eating (I think). I'm tracking. My main source of sustenance has been soup lately. It was a little cool in these parts and I got in the mood to make lamb stew. Today I made b... Read more
