Another Unplanned Dinner
Wednesday, January 13, 2016      1 comments

I forgot to mention the dinner I had at my son's house on Monday. I had a salad and spaghetti. Whew! That was pretty easy. I just took what I thought was a portion of pasta and a portion of spaghetti sauce. I felt I had made good choices. ... Read more
A Little Surprise

I am working on intervals on the treadmill and the elliptical. I joined my gyms weight challenge. I told them I would like to lose 6 pounds over the next 6 weeks. I thought I would just weigh in each week but they added something. They had m... Read more

I have exercised and eaten well so far. I am going to my son's house for dinner tonight. I will do my best to eat wisely...but I am not going to freak out if it's more calories than I would normally eat. I will just try to eat a smaller porti... Read more

I weighed today and am happy to report that I should reach my short term goal of weighing 180 pounds on January 24th!. I weighed 184.6. I am normally aiming for a 1 pound loss per week. I got a bit behind over the holidays. But I have lost 2... Read more

I was able to do 35 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes on the treadmill with intervals of more intensity sprinkled throughout. I also did 25 minutes of recumbent bike so that I could keep the flexibility in my new knee (I move the seat to... Read more

I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and 39 minutes of weight training and some stretching...zowy! was I tired! But I did it. I feel much better. I also received the spin bike I had ordered from Amazon. My hope is to get some extra workout... Read more
I'm better

I do feel better. I walked to Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds DVD and did resistance band training with Coach Nicole for 10 minutes. OK, not a stellar performance but I did something physical even though I would have preferred to curl up i... Read more

Yesterday, my nose started dripping like crazy. By night time I had a full fledged cold. I really do not feel too well. But I am eating (though I don't really feel like it) and recording it on SparkPeople. I did a step DVD for 20 minutes. I... Read more

Another Success
Tuesday, January 05, 2016      1 comments

I slept the right amount of time and went to the gym. I walked on the treadmill at 3 mph (YAY!) and did intervals of 3.5 mph for 24 minutes. Then I took my first spin class in over a year. I not only endured it, I managed to change the tensio... Read more

Today went well. I went to an extended family dinner. I had a small salad, less than 1/2 a baked potato, about 2 oz. of roast beef, a little corn, and a roll. My calories are in check. The get together was fun and very enjoyable. We are so... Read more

I worked out today and felt good about it...but I felt tired...more like a wet noodle. I didn't work out that hard. Strange. Knowing I am now on a diet is playing with my mind and I am giving in. In August I weighed 202 pounds. I am now... Read more

Blogging is such an interesting thing. I want (need) to journal this weight loss ride. I often feel compelled to write a lot. I want to be comfortable with just checking in, if that's all I need to do. Today is not that day. Why do I wa... Read more
No more days to count
Sunday, July 13, 2014      1 comments

My last status update occurred 98 days ago. Counting the days is weighing me down, not encouraging me. So, I am not going to do it any more. I am starting at the beginning. I just printed off the "Mind Over Body" series featured on SparkPeop... Read more
