On the Cruise, 2013
1. Track all food on Spark tracker
2. Wear my Fitbit and track exercise
3. Stay within my calorie range
4. 30 minutes daily walking and 3x per week other exercise, whether it is cardio, ST, yoga or other stretching or balance activity.
5. Hit the beach or the pool often!
1. Walk 30 minutes a day. 2. Follow 20 minute ST or yoga routine 3x a week. 3. Stay within my calorie range. 4. Exercise my brain!
I am tracking what I eat, keeping healthy food in the house, and trying to avoid "trigger" junk food for now. I've scheduled regular exercise into my week and am using the fitness tracker. I log into Spark every day.
Yo-yo dieter in the past & so glad I found SP. Married, mother to 2, stepmother to 2, grandma to 9. Retired teacher.
Avid reader and quilter, however, I'm doing less sitting and more moving now!

I think I posted a picture last fall of these carrots, they are so dark purple that they are almost black, your hands will turn all purple peeling them, I made carrot soup, and carrot fritters, they looked black, but were very delicious. You can't add them to soup or dishes because they will turn everything purple, but they are delicious tossed with a little olive oil and roasted. I have seen other "purple" carrots, but it is just skin deep with them, not sure where he got the seed, but we both order from Fedco, so probably there. They winter very well, we have a lot of snow cover so don't bother with straw or hay, nice spring veggie, now for some fiddlehead and dandelion greens!
Guess we can't do HTML or link to the blog, but it is titled Purple people eaters eat purple carrots

Thanks for your comments on my blog about DS's 30th birthday. You put into words what I hadn't quite discovered yet - I was wondering yesterday why I was feeling so weepy! It makes me feel comforted to know that perhaps this is a commonplace reaction.

Thanks for the comment on my New Year blog. I have still not found just the right dots - not that I couldn't have purchased packages with lots of colors at our local WalMart. For now, I am "making do" with a G, Y, and R written in! LOL!
I have all Gs except I gifted myself with a Y on the day that I ate lunch with my BF - and that is just to remind myself to be moderate when I eat away from home....
I am glad you are able to travel again - I look forward to reading about your adventures.
