It's been a travelin' day. I finally have an internet connection! I had a decent breakfast and dinner was OK....but I didn't really have lunch. I also can't connect my SparkPeople Tracker. I wasn't willing to bring the dongle with me. I ca... Read more

Well, tomorrow I leave for Idaho to take care of my grandchildren while my daughter and her husband go on a trip. I'm going to try to be careful and exercise. I didn't meet my exercise goal today. I did get my water in. I'll keep chipping aw... Read more

I am all ready for bed and remembered that I hadn't written in my blog today. At least, I remembered! Today went well enough. Not perfect yet, but good enough. I am starting out with very small goals to just get me going again. And it is wo... Read more

I have to admit that the SparkPeople Tracker did encourage me to exercise today. I actually cycled for 40 minutes. All the little green lights light up now and it makes me feel like I accomplished something. ... Read more

Thursday, October 24, 2013      2 comments

Today was nearly a miracle! I made my goal yesterday to drink 8 cups of water. That motivated me to eat a healthy breakfast this morning. At mid-morning I remembered that I had some leftover candy. I had purchased some toffee and had several... Read more

Thank you for your comment A-BIT-AT-A-TIME. Parenting gets easier in most ways....but when they are adults they often tell you about a challenge---just to vent---and then people like me want to "fix-it" for them because you love them so much. ... Read more
Day 182---More of a struggle
Tuesday, October 22, 2013      2 comments

I haven't made the best decisions today....and I need to figure out why. Right now, I don't seem to be able to put my finger on it. I suspect it has to do with my inability to solve my adult children's problems at times. Even though I TRUST t... Read more

I'm not really sure why I was so positive and motivated one day and so totally off track the next---but that is the reality of my situation. I am mortified and pleased with the number of days that have passed. Mortified, because so many days h... Read more

I was tempted at times to eat a non-nutritious food but I didn't succumb! I'm happy to report that my food choices were good and recorded. Now I just need to add in some exercise. ... Read more

Success! Ahhhh, sweet success! I was able to turn my food around to nutritious, rational eating. My teeth are flossed, brushed, and water pik'd. I'm done for the night. And I am smiling!... Read more
Day 167---still easy to fall back to old patterns!
Monday, October 07, 2013      3 comments

Wow. I think I nearly let twenty-six days go by without recording. I did well for most of my trip. In fact, compared to previous trips I did absolutely, remarkably better. Towards the end of my trip I started to lose control. Upon coming ho... Read more

I helped my daughter can pears most of the day and tonight. I'm tired! This is a quick check-in: I exercised and tracked food staying beneath the top of my calorie range.... Read more
Day 139
Sunday, September 08, 2013      2 comments

Wow! I can't believe that it has been 4 days since I have written. With twins, and a two and five year old that want attention non-stop, I guess I fell into bed not even thinking about this blog. Surprisingly, I have eaten quite f... Read more
