June 2, 2011-- iPhone

Thursday, June 02, 2011

Last blog was May 10, and I see I was wondering about the iPhone. Well, I got it, and it was totally worth every penny. Every single penny. I used to be irritated seeing all the young people engrossed in their phones, and with the idea that people do not talk to each other anymore, but wow, what I can do with it!! For example, yesterday I went on a power walk. I could keep track of the time on it; I could listen to my favorite motivating walking music on it; I could take a photo when I stopped to look at the glorious clouds from the top of the hill; and I could answer the phone if there was a problem at home. I even think I can access Spark with it, but I have not done that yet. If I see something I want to remember, I can leave a voice memo. Someone told me the name of a good book; no way would I recall it, so I just left a voice memo on my iPhone. It is revolutionary.

  


Searching for ideas - iphone?????

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Feel good about my Spark yesterday, I see how much easier it is to do when I eat by myself. What a challenge, how to do Spark when I am really busy, on vacation, with friends. How? I wonder if having an iphone would help? Cannot use it in front of them, that is rude. But when they got up to go to the bathroom, I could quickly enter my spark points? Any ideas on this? (am wanting a reason to spring money for an iphone)

  


Proud of myself

I got out a carton of ice cream and was waiting for it to melt. (I like it soft, it brings out the flavor) While I was waiting, I realized a banana would be just fine. So, I put the ice cream away, weighed the banana in grams, recorded it on Spark, and I feel so good!! I do not feel deprived. Later I had frozen yogurt with my 93 year old mom as a mothers day treat and we each shared so it was very light.

Post vacation

Very happy with how I ate yesterday. Feel like I can get back to better eating. I actually felt hungry!! (in a good way) That is something I did not experience on vacation!!! It was like going from one meal to the next without a break!!

Oh, no, 2 weeks have passed

Friday, May 06, 2011

Well, today, is May 6, and it seems like a long time away from Spark. I am okay with it, but I gained 2 pounds on my vacation in Yosemite. The problem is these restaurants give you food that is too much, and on vacation you cannot save it. I guess ordering from the "starters" section is the only way to cut down. So, now I have to return to my sparking, and I am further reinforced with the idea of how much it helps. Being away from Spark shows me how much it actually helps.

    Yes - it is harder when you are traveling. I always seem to have the mindset that once I'm out of the city limits - I have NO limits! NOT good!

Glad you are getting back on track. Two lbs is good - could have been just too much salt or a fluctuation in your weight.
