Wednesday, August 22, 2012

i feel like a kid again today.... i have b een back here on sparks for over a year now... and recently getting active.... of all this time so many of you have sent me goodies.... and i never knew how to send one back.... well today i figured it out.... how silly of me to not have realized it before today... anyway... i don't have alot of points... but i am giving them out now...
its my way of saying thanks to all of you that have supported me in this struggle..
has anyone else signed up for the spark coach??? i did monday..... i have been coming home each morning and going right to the coach.... trying to get a routine... i like the daily video.. i found my older spark dvd's and next week when i can get to target i will get the bootcamp one... my days off this week will be spent in spare room to clear it out so i can exercise ... tv has vhs/dvd. headphones and privacy....

    Hi Betsy. Having your own exercise room is great. I wish I could do that but as long as hubby doesn't mind my elliptical in our living space, it will do for now.

    Betsy, that is fantastic! How great to have your own exercise room. And don't feel bad about not knowing how to give goodies. I didn't either for a long time!

Hugs, Gail

    You are going to enjoy have an exercise room so you can move well in it! I'm so glad we're on this healthy Journey together. I also joined Spark Coach but just for a month as couldn't afford more right now. I also like it and especially enjoy the videos. I'm glad you figured out how to give goodies and I love the one you sent me. Thank you very much. Keep Doing It!! Exercising and Eating right that is--LOL!

Love,

JIll

    it is a struggle doing without those white carbs but I find that using more flavors/ seasonings helps. I've heard that cinnamon is very good for you so I try to use that a lot. I often drink flavorful fruity teas instead of sugary snacks in the evening. I have a chocolate raspberry tea that is divine. A friend suggested a pear green tea so I just bought that to add to my collection.

it was suggested by a few that i need to start blogging... so here i am.. i keep forgetting to sign my posts... for for everyone that is reading.... my nameis betsy... short for elizabeth.. i have been married twice... to a friske then a bailey.. i currently live with my boyfriend... for 12+yrs... he wants to get married... but if i do that... i will be taking on his mothers' name... she was a elizabeth also but they called her betty.... anyway we live in a small town between outer banks nc and virginia beach va... he is retired... and loves to help me at the store i work at twice a week... we lost one of our birds on new years eve... so our parrot has to do twice as much entertaining.. we like to spend quality time at home watching movies

as far as my weight... well i have struggled for most of my adult life... i have tried several plans... became a lifetime member at one of them but do not follow their new program.... i am diabetic and have had lot of stomach issues lately... my gastrologist recently took me off all white food items... so far its really working for me..

as of today... 8/6 i have not had any bread.. potatoes.. rice or my favorite pasta.. in three weeks.... i have also given up sodas of any kind nor have i had any fries with my sandwiches or chips of any kind... and i feel much better...

thanks to all my friends on here.. i am doing great... staying on track

    Betsy, thanks for sharing some of your life with us! Glad you are feeling a bit better and I give you so much credit!!! Not having anything "white" would not make me a happy camper. This has just a little to do with your blog. My aunt had two daughters. She named them both Elizabeth. Neither was ever referred to as "Elizabeth", but one was Libby and the other was Betty. I guess weirdness runs in my family. lol (hugs) Noel

    You can keep your maiden name if you do ever choose to get married. After I left my first husband I went back to my maiden name. When I got married the second time, I didn't change my name to his. But after 12 years would it make much difference married or not?

The only way to get to where you want to be is just keep trying. I too have struggled with my weight my whole life. But we just keep working at it. Way to go!

Have a great week!

Cindy
