A couple of nice things happening. I was walking past the church down the street on Sunday and found out they were giving away fresh vegetables. Apparently, they hadn't done a very good job of spreading the word because it was getting late and t... Read more

Getting ready for the week ahead: Got the chili started: Chicken thighs, plenty of peppers and onions and I'm thinking of adding some squash to it. I'm planning to start my mornings with a green smoothie: spinach, plain Greek yogurt an... Read more
Gonna take a few days to wallow in depression, disappointment and discouragement

It's been just about a month and I've not lost an iota of weight, as far as I can tell. I'm only going by my clothes, but the main pair of pants that I'm using for measurement don't fit any looser. Clearly, some changes must be made. I hav... Read more
Waiting for daylight so I can go for a walk

I've been awake since 3am, but I went to bed at 7:30pm, so I actually had a full night's sleep. The trouble was the 2 hours sleep I had two nights ago. I knew better when I drank two cups of coffee late in the afternoon at school but the room w... Read more
Got to git 'er done!
Friday, September 14, 2012      5 comments

I employed one of my old strategies today. I arrived early to meet someone and walked around for 45 minutes before they arrived. If I hadn't done it then, this might have been a no walk day. ... Read more
Trying to get a streak going

Time got away from me this morning and I wasn't able to get my walk done. I had 45 minutes to kill after school but my clothes weren't comfortable enough for walking in the sun. It was still nagging me that I hadn't walked when I got home from d... Read more

I'm happy that I walked the 4 miles to school yesterday and got out early this morning, then went to dance class this evening. In two weeks I think I've only missed one day of walking. I'm going to add one more dance class and it's time to do so... Read more
Yeah, so I let my excuse win out yesterday, and it was a really stupid one.

Had I set my intention the night before to walk first thing in the morning, I might have made it. But after I had my coffee and breakfast and started my homework and did laundry and so on and so on, every time I thought about going for a walk, I... Read more

And then I saw this: I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.' -Muhammad Ali Wow! Muhammad Ali hated training. And training for him wasn't 30 - 60 minutes, a f... Read more
New start goals
Tuesday, September 04, 2012      2 comments

I need to set my goals and though I'm all about losing weight, I don't want to get into weighing or measuring myself. I want to be fit and healthy and not eat a bunch of chemicals. I want my focus to be on the quality of the foods I eat, exercis... Read more
Today, was a good day! Happy to blog about it.

So glad I didn't post a blog yesterday. I didn't walk and I ate terribly. Blogging about it would have made me feel worse. Today, I'm Super SparkWoman. I got out for my walk nice and early, tracked my food and fitness for the day, signed u... Read more
I started a 1 year school program in Oct 2011 with plans in my head of how much weight I could lose

Well, I've gained weight. With only 2 months left of school, I'm taking another stab at it. This is day 2 of my personal challenge to see how much weight I can lose in the next 8 weeks. Yesterday went well. I can always make a great start,... Read more

My waist is the same as last week = not good. Half inch off hips = good. Two differences in my diet last week, Ezekiel bread and bacon. The bread is still in the freezer and I'll try not to have any this week, the bacon is gone. Neither of tho... Read more

TWO AND A HALF INCHES OFF MY WAIST!!! That is the most progress I've made in 2 years. Except for the first week, it's all due to my diet. I worked out every day in that 1st week and lost a whole inch, since then I've been sporadic and lost... Read more
