I was just wondering how other Sparkpeople in my communities gauge their success with their healthier lifestyle? I have to admit I can't gauge my success by the numbers on the scale although that is how we define ourselves some times. We don't do it on purpose, that's just how our minds work. We see we can fit a size 2-4-6 & feel we have successfully won the weight loss battle only to find out, its just the beginning. So now you have maintain that weight without gaining it all back & more. I believe that is why I stopped weigh myself? I would get so distraught & reach for my favorite carb food red vines or go to Wendy's. Please let me know how you gauge success, please?
I have to say that I really enjoy my job for the most part. I'm EXTREMELY happy to still be here & working & bringing home health care insurance as well as a pay check. Okay?I I'm not a saint or crazy! Anyway, back to the reason for my blog. Well I don't know if you can tell it or not but I REALLY care a lot about animals. Guess what? So do all of the employees that I work with, now that's amazing! So you can imagine our surprise that in the past 6-7 years that we get all kinds of animals showing up here abandoned or the fall in our window wells. It breaks our hearts. we have found 3 stray cats & found good homes for them. We have had one we had a police officer out here & try to coax this stray dog for 2 hours!! He was rough looking & looked like he had been hurt. I was thinking of adoption but then Shadow probably wouldn't like that?! About 2 weeks ago we had a (No these are NOT kittens!) Who required us to put food out for him & a ladder so that he could climb out.
So today when I get to work you can imagine our surprise to find 4 trapped in our window well. We fed them & again put out a ladder so that they could climb out & then they were finally free. We are now still looking for them but know we will see them again. Hopefully, not in the office! Blessings Dee
I have been refilling my water bottle since I started drinking water on the regular back in 1998. I mean I drank water but only 1/2 - 1 cup every other day. I just never could stand tap water. I gulp soda & kool Aid since forever but water was not on my priority list of things to do. Now that I am growing in my health consciousness that now when I went to Walmart over the weekend I bought a brand new reusable water bottle. Now this is a kids one the one I bought is a 32oz mean Big Gulp & it helps me really gauge my water drinking. I am so full of it water that is that I am about to blow!
Not literally. Okay?! People mind on the matter at hand. So I am so into this I am researching trying to find the perfect water bottle. I don't care for the ones that you have to sip & the top is accessible. I prefer to have top that I can open, drink, then spin the top back on. Here a few I found:
but I really this puppy is really handy: It has its on BAG!! Is that cool or what? Well one is $18 & the other one is $24. If you know of any others please feel free to hit me up on my Sparkpage with suggestions.
