Tracking the Ptarmigan

Follow the tracks of a plump Alaska bird--grandmother, bookworm, fanatic knitter, water aerobics teacher--as she attempts to make shallower dents in the snow.

Other Information:
My favorite quote from Birdie, a Spark Person who lost 140 lbs: Know that for every day that you have stayed within your calorie limits, you have used a little of your fat stores.

The scale is only a guide. If you stayed within your calorie range, you did not deposit any new fat on your body. Tell yourself that the scale can sometimes hold on to extra water, leading you to think that you are not making any progress. Before you go to bed, pat yourself on the back and tell yourself, "I stayed within my calorie range today; therefore I did not gain any fat." Tell yourself that and stay on plan.

Hi there. Just dropping by to see how you're doing. I see you haven't blogged much lately and I haven't heard from you in a bit. I've been working through the Beck Trek with a bunch of Sparkers, hard work but lots of useful learning there.
Kia kaha, Chickie!

My message to help motivate you & ( Especialy ) Me this week is

‚ÄúDon't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.‚ÄĚ

Have A Wounderful Week !!!

Thank you for my new water tube!! It put a smile on my face today! I'm thinking of going to a new gym that has an aqua Zumba class today. It sounds like so much fun and will take me out of my comfort zone which is something I need to do every now & then! Have a great day!
