Color Therapy app a few months ago. Color Therapy App - May 2016 (3 comments) Oops - I saw I had missed a spot or two! (2 comments) To gain access to iOS 9+ feature of requesting desktop page (to access some of the SparkPeople features not available in mobile mode). Thanks, Coach Denise! And if you are practicing but don't really want desktop mode, you can touch "cancel" and go back where you were! Yay! (1 comments) New (to me) #NACV in glass gallon jar! I already decanted mine into my empty quart jars! Yea! Been a long time since I last could get NACV by the glass gallon! #recycle #bettertaste #savings (2 comments) Sundog on left side. #Walking (1 comments) is wishing everyone a Happy Fourth of July for everywhere in the world where it is or just was the 4th, and Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans. Mowed down the grass, just in time for next rain. Nourished most of the mosquitos in the county. 😜 83 degrees feels like 96, we are walking in circles waiting for AAA to do battery work on his old SUV. 80% humidity! Wakes about 20 minutes so far. Yay! Ate chicken before the game so not really "hungry", but for free tickets I wanted to buy something to nibble on. I could do worse... (1 comments) I wasn't walking in this ... Did drive under part of it though. This is part of #panorama I posted on my @Twitter/MsDrPepper last night. (8 comments) What I saw along my walk this morning... (1 comments) Salad for Breakfast!! Yum! (3 comments) Walked up and down Falls Creek trail in Steamboat Springs, CO - didn't have proper shoes and water for a longer visit. Snowed, too! (4 comments) The Falls - I zoomed in a little bit from the lookout point. (3 comments) Happy Monday!! (3 comments) (1 comments) Walked dog. Wind was a bit nippy, NNE 15-18 mph. Sunny. I felt surprisingly well for being in rear end collision yesterday afternoon! (3 comments) My brother just texted me this meme! (5 comments) Ate Salvadoran food - this veggies is a type of squash. I'm not sure of spelling, but sounds like "chyante" or kyanite! Anyone know?? Yummy ! (4 comments) Walking dog at the park. She was delighted to check out a "new to her" park. Anyone here on Runkeeper app? Feel free to look me up @Prov31Julia. I need to get out more often. (2 comments) Isn't this adorable? But way more effort than I will likely put into it. I got it from Instagram @healtheverlasting. Enjoy! (Added:) Oh and I wouldn't be using Peter Pan brand - more likely Smuckers Natural Peanut Butter (or Laura Scudders or Adams, similar brands, no sugar, no added fats)... (3 comments) Anyone familiar with this silly Water Tracker called "PlantNanny"? There is a way to friend me on this app via Twitter, I think? Basically, you pick your cup and how much volume (ounces or metric too), and your plant "grows". I still have a lot of questions... The Perfect Diet!! (6 comments) (3 comments) And there is the 17 minutes I was tracking at the same time I had Runkeeper allegedly tracking . Be sure to read to end of letter and collect your $10 Amazon gift card...they won't accept after February 6th (Monday). (4 comments) Wonder if the Tracker can be reverse-hacked... Fun at the pond, a good walk!! (1 comments) After the excitement of catching a squirrel in our bedroom, we drove to a big park south of town, and enjoyed this beautiful sunset on the way (windy weather tomorrow!?). We released the squirrel at a nice big park 10+ miles or so away. (1 comments) Perfect song for vacuuming and scrubbing crud out of the carpet!! Today is National Hat Day (in USA at least, not sure about other countries!?) - Happy Hat Day! (4 comments) Walked the dog and the husband. Husband slows me down too much (we pick up trash & recyclables!). First sunny day since last Thursday! Wow, guess I am last one to know Red Robin now Jason lower calorie alternatives to bottomless fries! (2 comments) Look what followed me home from Co$tco !? Late #Birthday gift, $20 discount - updating and setting up now! Connected again. Think it is @msdrpepper but if you had connected with me before, I should still be on list? (1 comments) Tried a new product from @Costco - fairly decent nutrition for average, but it also shows nutrition for salad only, no dressing #KETO friendly etc - could make own dressing, or cook greens etc. (4 comments) Jon and I at Freshies in Steamboat Springs. (2 comments) 38 degrees, 14 mph so windchill was 30. Glad I had my Sparkpeople headband on. Java seemed to enjoy being out - funny dog! This is the sunset photo I thought I was attaching to my previous check-in status... (1 comments) Freezing and ice one week, temps in the 70's the next week! We need moisture and cold for crops to grow ! 😧 (2 comments) Someone here posted a cartoon from the "Walkr" app (yes, ot is spelled without an e). I forgot the name of the SparkFriend in Malaysia who was using this to track her treadmill workouts? Any other players? It's not quite as "accurate" as say, FitBit app. More of a game. ChemTrails all over the east sky! This is part of a panoramic photo. Runkeeper says I walked 40 minutes. But we stopped a lot to pick up litter, talk to mail lady, wait for dog to do her "dooty", so yea I guess it was closer to 37 minutes. Woot!! My "good intention" was to walk up and down stairs and in basement during the stupor bowl. Instead, I walked up and down 11 flights in less than 10 minutes. Time to go home now! (1 comments) Was 18 degrees around sunrise, but by the time we went walking, it was 33 with a 4moh wind SSE. My ears & neck make me wimp out so we walked north with wind RJ our backs and then cut back through the 'hood. #unfiltered Sky after our walk. Too many houses to see actual #sunset . Partial #eclipse of the moon #kansas Stalled all day with my achey shoulder. Finally took dawg around the longer "block" for a quick-ish walk before leaving to see #opencaptioned "Star Wars: Rogue One" movie. Yay. I had made at least one lap around Cheddar's before I thought to turn on Runkeeper. 48 degrees. Walked around Cheddar's while waiting for a table. Went after the #captioned movie "SW: Rogue One" - we were told a 25-30 min wait ! @pangii Today was first time I saw 10,000 steps on #Walkr ! 🎉😁 Had a yummy peanut butter & avocado on whole wheat pita yesterday afternoon! Wasn't feeling good last night from my arm aching so I forgot to upload this yesterday. (2 comments) Exact same route but I guess I was wobbling more in the middle of road than to the far side, so it was 1.11 miles this evening, not 1.12 like it was earlier this afternoon. Oh well!! Still more steps and still time with my sweetie. (1 comments) One last walk with dog, still in fasted state. Blood glucose went from 127 after overnight fast, and was 99 around 4:45 pm. Ketones 1.6 both times. I will check it soon. Waiting for my after walk water to settle. My arm is healing from the fast burning out crud in my system. Lunch: Steamfresh Green Beans, yogurt, shredded cheese, avocado, cherub tomatoes... (2 comments) Guess it pays to share @Sparkpeople articles on @twitter etc - and I don't know this guy (he might be on the Spark, for all I know...) Does anyone use the @argus app ? This is on iOS but maybe also on Android etc? (6 comments) Took the dog and hubby for a walk... Walked dog around pond. 77 degrees (F). IN FEBRUARY! 😩 This is not a good thing, peeps! We are heading for a drought in Kansas. I hope the upcoming cold snap brings us some nice wet snow. (1 comments) I forgot to post this last night. The Runkeeper app makes there photos too tall, so something has to be cropped out. The stats I am more interested in, than the @Runkeeper name. Oh well. When will they ever learn? Why can't the apps play nice with each other?? And yay for me and the dog and my husband! (1 comments) And the walk this morning. I need a dog shrink. When we are at the park (pond), she has to "pee" a tiny sprinkle like every minute or two of walking. (Texting?) Lately, she has started doing this deal where she's parked but scratching her rear feet and tearing out grass. She hasn't ever really done this the last three years we've had her. Looks funny, like the guys who park their cars and rev engines to spin the back tires... (1 comments) I modified two of the Workout Stat pages on @Runkeeper to show both today's date and stats, but without the map that goes on the first page after workout is finished. BTW I read somewhere that a bath with epson salts and grapefruit oil was supposed to be good for reducing bloat or some such. But in fact, it is burning the back of my legs in contact with the water. They better be forcibly sucking the fat cells out into the water for this much pain!! Ouch! (1 comments) Another walk, this one with my husband. Kinda got cut short because my mom feels like having dinner today. I had to jump and sync my FB every so often to see when it finally gave me credit for 30 minutes (rebounded more like 35 minutes). I've asked Fitbit to tweak software to allow us to tap on the green spots to allow us to see the celebration "confetti" (for our photos to share - right!? We can't all sit around and watch it hit the green star the first time!). This is the #Tweet I sent, along with the previous screen shot of my confetti 🎉 which I sent to @Fitbit. If all (or many) of us @pep @fitbit @twitter @sparkpeople users go on Twitter and like 💜 or retweet or quote retreat, maybe @FitBit will make that a "feature"!? Not everyone is on @twitter so that's okay - but @fitbit users can still share the request with the Fitbit app feedback or on Facebook or other media!! I wondered why it was "so hot" while I was #rebounding ... well, duh! It's 77 degrees outdoors, 73 (F) indoors, and I was hopping along to @spotify #rebounding music channel!! Scary! I wonder how hot summer will be!!? Our newspaper has a business columnist who quotes pithy comments made at local events - This was in today's paper (in Saturday's dead tree edition - published on Friday): Thought this was funny, and true!! "I know it's Monday... But you're awesome!! Java and I went on a girl's field trip, over to a friend's house to pick up the farm fresh eggs dropped off a few days ago by a farmer friend. Then went to Starbucks & got me a coffee and she got a small whipped cream! Then we went for our walk (phot just before this one.). Yay! (1 comments) Really wish @PEP had a trampoline rebounder graphic to use in here! 30 minutes. @UrbanReboundingTeam Walked the hubby and the dog. Not really in a mood to walk when I left and still waiting for the "walking makes me feel wonderful" fairy to come and whack me on the heine... (2 comments) @Runkeeper's photo is too long, so what a pity, that part gets cropped out, hee hee. Dog has been on two walks this morning, this one with me. She is eating her grass! (Veggies!?) I'm pooped. This is heading to my blog, as well... Walked the dog. Tired. Had a short night last night. Earlier, just after sunset... Walked dog and hubby. Donated blood earlier today. Kinda tired. (1 comments) Part 1 of 2 - the 8,000 steps "confetti" for the entire day. I know some are chortling because they run 8K steps in one long run (or walk). But, oh well... then the next one: Part 3 of 2 showing the 30 minutes total for a sustained "workout", when I went for this walk this evening. So I'm easily thrilled with colorful confetti - 🎉🎊 🎉 (2 comments) Was in Parade Magazine a few weeks ago... (1 comments) Ordered this Greek Salad yesterday for dinner but I ended up taking most of it home. Had it for breakfast this morning. (2 comments) Took off rebounding and then realized a) my FitBit was upstairs (hubby went to get it for me), and b) my phone on charge so I couldn't track with Runkeeper or Walkr, etc. Just eyeballed the clock! (1 comments) Well for matzo 0.5 g fat same as 0.50g. Each board is 100 calories and hardly any fat, which is why they are awesome smothered in butter. And I also did a "scientific" N+1 to prove (to me) that matzo covered in coconut oil is just as awesome as butter, only the coconut oil is easier to spread and melts faster... alas, for they are not #KETO friendly ... 4-12-2017 Mashup #graphics @storm @runkeeper using @layout here on @sparkPeople #PEP - a "quickie" before the heavier storm hits. It's raining gently now... but my mom is farther down south in that green area & she said its raining hard. We saw reports that there was hail west of her... Kind of restless night. Hubby and I did a slow dawdling walk before the rains which are supposed to arrive soon. #SabbathWalk Trying to sleep.... not walking in this storm now!? (5 comments) Walked the dog. Walked the Hunny. Enjoyed the end of Passover week. The rest of the geese seem to have traveled elsewhere. I'm not sure if Goose/Gander/Goosette just really likes it here?? (1 comments) Didn't get a lot of sleep. Walked like a zombie. But I got in 32 minutes so far. Dog walked with me, too. Rebounding shows up as a spastic graph on @Runkeeper app!! Walked dog. Two laps around park. 69 deg F, 63% humidity, overcast, winds out of SSE 6 mph. (3 comments) Today, I tried the stopwatch feature for "other" workout, instead of the GPS default. Apparently this lets Runkeeper stop obsessing over the distance traveled and the route, which my rebounding events don't really create. Instead, it got all excited about how high I jumped. Oh well! This is what mowing looks like... Waiting for energy to kick in... oh wait. Maybe I should eat dinner!' 😀 Runkeeper got goobered up somehow and messed up the map tracking, plus showed me as only walking 30 min not 32. I recall looking at it just after the 27 minutes, so I might have forgotten to lock screen when I put in pocket. (1 comments) Tired of apps draining battery because they want to be on "Always" - when bring on GPS only when using the app isn't good enough. We'll try an end run here... (1 comments) Happy Mother's Day (USA, officially, but Worldwide, as far as I am concerned - should be Every Day!) to everyone who has children, whether alive now, or alive in our hearts and cherished memories, adopted in love, foster, men who have raised children, fur babies, Grandmothers, Aunties, if you consider yourself a Mom, Mother, Mommy, Nana, whatever you call yourself or your loved ones call you - this card is for you - as it says inside: "Hoping it makes you smile just knowing I think you're pretty (1 comments) Trying out something. Upload from phone to here, inside SP iPhone Pep app. Then I think I can upload to SP Color book Team? (2 comments) Snow melted today - 53 degrees this evening... (2 comments) Yaay!! I found my Spark Activity Tracker!! (It was attached to a camisole - which I usually don't do. It's back on my shoe, woo hoo! (1 comments) Remember my crabapple tree blooms yesterday? (6 comments) The survivors - after three days of relentless winds!! (1 comments) We were at the @WesternSizzlin yesterday in Okla and I was pleased and impressed with the ending on our receipt! No wonder they are #blessed! (2 comments) Off to Oklahoma for a funeral. Winds are high. The sun yesterday was eerie peeking through the dust and smoke (fires). Parts of back roads we likely not have Internet coverage. (1 comments) And we're off! We have also had high winds so these blooms might not last a week!! (3 comments) Saw this in Facebook, thought about my Rebounding Sparkers!! This was the basic path, but not full round trip (forgot to start this app after I started charity Miles app. (1 comments) I had no idea Ginger is so high in iron! 10 grams is roughly 2 tsp (USA), best I can tell. Very soothing to achey body in a warm bath, but it adds more warmth! I use smaller bottle in kitchen. Time to let go bag and buy another! (1 comments) I bought this 14 oz bag at an Asian grocery store - for restaurants or cooks who don't mess around using lots of Ginger. But why? >> see part 2 (1 comments) Driving home from funeral in Dallas (at DFW National Cemetery). day 176 of my streak for "Drink 8 cups of water per day" earned 2/2/2016 (1 comments) Distracted by playing junk games on my phone and forgot to check in! (2 comments) Rebounded 30 minutes with Rebpunder Hound! 😛 (4 comments) Mango Lassi - yogurt & mango, nice antidote to the warming effects of spicy Indian food last night! After repeatedly making suggestions ever since Zevia first came out in aluminum cans (which I can taste, ewww!), I saw this clear Zevia Ginger Root Beer today in bottles! Will taste tomorrow after refrigeration overnight. Zero calories using stevia, and bonus - no allergen causing caramel food color! Woot! (2 comments) The rest of my ghee went into recycled jelly jar (disregard the use by date - I think jelly was used up long before the 1-2 year use by date.). It still looks liquid. I need to take a photo of it now, some 24+ hours later. This morning I noticed it was more solid looking. I'm also concerned I didn't get everything cooked out, despite cooking for longer than an hour. My heat might have been too low. From what instructions say, I should have had about 25% less volume. I started with 2 pounds (32 o I'm recycling a clean, DRY glass jar (which originally had fermented sauerkraut.). I've seen & bought ghee in all sizes and shapes of glass or metal containers. (1 comments) Straining out more of the water foaminess... Skimming off the water foam as it cooks down. Stirring lumps of butter to prevent sticking and burning. Butter on sale $1.99 on sale (pound). I took photos sort of out of sequence as I had already chopped up previous sticks (to help butter melt faster.). (1 comments)

Looking east of the sunset, where the clouds are coming out of the south west headed north-easterly... Driving home & had to stop! (2 comments) Just leaving the car wash... (1 comments) Was noticing an amazing sunrise as I walked Java, but took a while to get to the park area where I get a better view of the horizon...and then discovered the left side sun dog, took a photo, and then realized the right side had a better, bigger sun dog on the right side. There's all sorts of scientific names for the phenomenon but "pretty" and "thankful" works well for me!! (2 comments) How do I completely disconnect "Chatty Cathy"? I got the audio turned off for the paces, distance, segments, etc but starting up and after I have selected finish /save options, the witch starts talking and I have no clue what she is saying (nothing to Lipread!)...very creepy intrusion into my thoughts while I was working. About to kick this app to the curb! Any ideas?? (2 comments) So, I want to make homemade vanilla extract - would this be a good base? I don't know what it tastes like...bought it years ago & never tried! Get vanilla beans yesterday. Or is rum, vodka, brandy, Kailua, amaretto better?? (5 comments) So, the new SparkApp discontinued the GPS tracker? Really? And the week ahead water tracker? 😒 And someone stole our dog last night, or Miss Houdini escaped her collar, not sure which. (4 comments) Heard this cook song on my Pandora station ("The Wallflowers" station.. Actually taking a nap in the heat. But got this bookmarked for later... 😄 (2 comments) This is my end-rub jack attempt to get photo from iPhone into my PC without actually syncing?? Then it can go in the blog, like I originally wanted it to do. (2/2) (3 comments) Once upon a time, SparkPeople phone app would let me take a photo while it was tracking my walk. This new SP app doesn't seem to offer that ability - yet we can take photos here inside Pep. Is this intentional? Or am I suddenly senile!? (1 comments) Sunset reflected in eastern skies (2 comments) Did the mad dogs & Englishmen thing walking here. Sweat is dripping!! I need to get on home to Kansas. Want to post more photos later!! (1 comments) I still driving home… Aren't these half pint cartons of buttermilk adorable? A little expensive, but I miss the paper cartons. Can't get these (or the brand) in Kansas. Got this in Illinois, great size for traveling. 10g of protein! Wow! (3 comments) Iowa has been holding out on us!!? BEST.BUTTERMILK.EVER!! Taking s little walk at the rest area south of Des moine IA, (1 comments) I was an investor on IndieGoGo for @PerfectFuels and at long last (2 years?), the new flavors are released - #Chia, #Expresso, and #Ginseng. Yum!! (1 comments) I was an investor on IndieGoGo for @PerfectFuels and at long last (2 years?), the new flavors are released - #Chia, #Expresso, and #Ginseng. Yum!! (1 comments) I was an investor on IndieGoGo for @PerfectFuels and at long last (2 years?), the new flavors are released - #Chia, #Expresso, and #Ginseng. Yum!! (1 comments) This Spark App GPS Workout tracker amuses me. I've no idea why apps can't utilize iPhone sensors to tell when I am walking forward and then backward when I mow (so I don't have to move electric cord just to turn around and mow the other direction.). Oh well. I agree with the 25 minutes as we had to get it done in daylight and before rain! (1 comments) (1 comments) (1 comments) Dr Oz "The Docs" column in today's paper (PEP cropped part of it out, sorry!) about Saffron (spice) more effective for knee pain etc as a NSAID!! And yummy, too!! Saw this in my Twitter feed and I just HAD to share!! So TRUE!! 😛 (1 comments) Argh my son brought dog out for last chance to pee before bed and found this baby rabbit. Of course, he wants me to take care of it! It's about 4" long. Possibly injured? I'm clueless ... (9 comments) Was trying to respond to a question on Facebook, asked by a young teenager I knew - she wanted to know the name of a color that "didn't exist"...and I saw a nice sunset after my walk this evening. Moved some wind-sown escapees out of yard closer to front door "bed" - 45 min exercise & Vitamin D intake for the day! Triple run! Score!! (1 comments) We had some hail - averaging half inch I think but some close to an inch. Glad I wasn't outside walking!! (1 comments) Yummy spinach walnut salad with grilled chicken and on-the-side honey mustard and raspberry vinaigrette to customize and control.

(1 comments) Five pounds of muscle - top. Five pounds of fat - bottom. Notice the volume difference. A year from now you may wish you started today... The connection between the teeth and the body's organs. Walk yourself out of a bad mood. Studies show that even a 10 minute walk immediately boosts brain (1 comments) Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. "...Happiness doesn't come as a result...rather recognizing & appreciating what we do have." I love these shoes! I can't get them in my size! They are New Balance & I need 9.5-10 wide!
