I wish all days could be like this. I had a great session of weight training followed by a whirlpool and sauna. Then I headed to Barnes and Noble for a blissful afternoon of sipping a caramel brulee latte while reading Vogue. Purr-fection! ... Read more

Apologies to all my SparkFriends for not posting in the last month. Life has kept me way busy. My son finally got back to college last week so I've been spending the time cleaning out the spare bedroom which he used as his second bedroom. ... Read more

If there's one thing I can say that has changed about my attitude to weight loss it would be changing from focusing on the negative to focusing on the positive. I confess I'm a perfectionist and have had to struggle with being content with less ... Read more

I'm back, baby!! Back in the gym that is. My first weight training workout in two months went really well. I kept it fairly light and it felt really good. So the plan is to hit theweights three times a week, alternating between upper and lower b... Read more

Cappy the Golden Retriever puppy had her first day at doggie day camp. Our vet runs it so it's very convenient. She got to run and play with other dogs, something she doesn't get a chance to do. She came back home exhausted but happy and is now ... Read more

Although I had the best of intentions I didn't make it through the day yesterday. I succumbed to an attack of carb obsession. No great harm done but I'm starting the streak again today. Day one and counting....... Read more

Really good day today - stayed on the low side of my calorie range. In fact I had to make sure I planned enough food because I wasn't really hungry all day. Good new! My son has his car back so I'll be able to start going back to the gym t... Read more

Ok, I'll confess right up front that I broke the streak today. But I did in on purpose and with planning. I had what's known as a cheat meal. My family goes out for dinner every Friday night and they wanted to go to a Mexican restaurant tonight.... Read more
Staying on track streak - Day 10
Wednesday, July 14, 2010      0 comments

Not a good way to wake up this morning. The dog had diarrhea all night on the kitchen floor and my son's car might need to have the engine rebuilt (thus he must still ride to work with me). Thank goodness I don't have to think about my food plan... Read more

I can't believe I lost 2 lbs. over the weekend. I had to jump on and off the scale about 5 times before I'd believe it. I think I must have been holding some water because no way that's fat. It will tell the tale when I do measurements at the en... Read more

I had a great weekend. We went out for dinner both Saturday and Sunday. I was so worried that I would overeat because eating out is one of my biggest challenges. It's so easy to make unhealthy choices when other people are doing it. But with car... Read more
Staying on track - Day Five

I'm really surprised by how easy a day I had. No hunger at all (or at least it was tolerable). I'm waiting for my weekly treat...dinner from Portillo's. For those unfamilar, if you come to Chicago, go to Portillo's for the best Italian beef sand... Read more
