Monthly Archives: December 2008

Can you believe 2009 is almost here?

The year has flown by! My kids are getting older and smarmier. Hubby and I are turning into old people, lol.

All in all I feel pretty decent about my progress. I haven’t lost weight, but I haven’t gained overall, either. I am more active and mae a better effort in keeping track of my eating and activity. 2009 will be different.

I joined SparkPeople. It’s a community focused on fitness and nutrition that isn’t intimidating. Food logs, day planners, journals, blogs, and SparkTeams are there to help you find encouragement, assistance, and give you a better idea of how you’re doing. I’m wahminsc there if you’d like to say hi. I’m a member of a few SparkTeams – join me?

Exercise today: Turbo Jam Learn & Burn; yoga

Yep, 10:42 am and I’ve gotten in a good sweat. It feels good!

Here’s to a great Sunday!

Playing catch up

Ok, I forgot to post earlier in the week. Right now I’m taking a break from my assignment because it was giving me a headache. The assignment and DD’s refusal to complete any of her assignments. Oh, and Snorificus is on the couch drowning out all sounds but his own. Yay…

I had a gain this past Sunday and I expected it. I didn’t journal and it came back to haunt me. I usually have a monthly gain, and this was less than usual, so I’m not as down as I could be about it. I wonder if I could have avoided the gain altogether if I had kept my journal. Seeing the food log in print or on screen makes me think twice about what I have at a later meal.

On the positive side, I had tons of water, fruit, and vegetables, even when we ate out. And I kept the caffeine level down.

Gah! My body is rebelling – my hands are cramping up like they usually do during a flare up. Yay flareup.

Plan for next week:
Add 10 minutes to my walks
Keep the fruit & veggies preppeed and ready to go
Keep foods with inflammatory properties to a minimum

So, how has your week been?
