Getting Back Into Routine
Wednesday, August 12, 2009      2 comments

Today has gone better as far as fitness goes. I went to the fitness center and did both strength training and cardio, and was pleased to find that I didn't lose as much as I thought I might from being gone (cardio actually may have improved--all... Read more
Post Pennsic report
Tuesday, August 11, 2009      5 comments

It's weird to be home again. I'm trying to re-establish my routine--not only for fitness, but also for things like working on my dissertation, and it's surprisingly difficult after being gone for two weeks. Today I got nothing done that I plan... Read more
Home again
Saturday, August 08, 2009      5 comments

We just got home from Pennsic--literally all I've done so far is transfer some friends' gear from my car to theirs and took a shower. We still have the van to unpack and then get to sort out all the gear back to where it belongs, which will tak... Read more
Quick Update
Friday, July 24, 2009      4 comments

Lesson Learned: Not only is it easier to eat healthy if you plan it in advance, but if you double check that the foods you plan on eating are actually still good (oops). And reading the nutrition labels is also a plus; my hasty-I'm-really-hung... Read more
Pennsic Planning
Monday, July 20, 2009      2 comments

First, a quick update--the other day when I was stressing out because I was so hungry and yet afraid of going over my calorie limits? I ended up being 100 calories short! Which is nice because it meant I could have a snack and be happier, but... Read more
Getting my stride back
Friday, July 17, 2009      1 comments

Thanks for the concern and support, everyone! I'm doing much better today. One good thing about having the bursitis for 7 years is that when it flares up like that I know exactly what to do for it. So it's back more or less where it was befor... Read more
Um, D'uh
Thursday, July 16, 2009      2 comments

First, good news. I heard from my doctor and my tests came back good for all of the vitamins and minerals, so I don't need to worry about them. I just need to keep doing what I've been doing. Which is good timing to get good news, becaus... Read more
Some Random Thoughts

I found this neat resource on Sparks: www.sparkpeople.com/reso

Tips for Staying Motivated
Sunday, July 12, 2009      3 comments

By now, I suppose it shouldn't surprise anyone that I read-- a lot. And whenever I want to do something, I tend to do a lot of research about it (my husband has been teasing me because we plan to get some fish, though we probably won't until at... Read more
Doctor Visit Goes Well
Friday, July 10, 2009      4 comments

Today I saw my doctor for a routine check up on my bad hip. It's still hurts, but that's not really that big of a surprise. I didn't expect, after struggling with it for almost 7 years, for it to be cured over night. But it at least is better... Read more
Feeling Good!
Wednesday, July 08, 2009      3 comments

Despite the fact that apparently I pushed my hip a little too far today (currently icing it because it hurts--oops) I'm feeling really, really good about my progress for the first time since starting sparks. 1) I haven't taken my weight in ... Read more
Water Water Everywhere
Tuesday, July 07, 2009      2 comments

This week on Sparks I'm supposed to focus on getting enough water. That shouldn't be a problem; I have been drinking the 8 glasses of water now since April, when I first came to Sparks (I postponed moving on to stage 2 until after the move beca... Read more
A Good Day
Saturday, July 04, 2009      1 comments

I missed today's "regular" work out--I just didn't have time--but instead I got to go spend the day in the park with friends and then went to the zoo. So while it wasn't as intense as working out in the fitness center, I was reasonably active w... Read more
Sensing a Trend
Wednesday, July 01, 2009      1 comments

I'm sensing a trend here... Last week I was supposed to concentrate on eating right--making sure I had enough vegetables and whole grains and limiting things like salt and fat, especially the bad fats. I found myself obsessing over food (... Read more
good so far
Wednesday, June 24, 2009      1 comments

I just wanted to pop in here quickly, since I've been posted recently about how hard it was to try to balance all the proper nutrients and get it within the calorie guidelines.... That every day this week so far but yesterday I have been w... Read more
