A Good Addiction........

Thursday, August 21, 2008

As I go through all of the different things to learn on Sparks I end up laughing at myself. Sometimes, I have to force myself to get off the computer to do my work! Right now, I decided at least the washing machine could be doing the work for me emoticon I was trying to get a picture of food to show up on my posts so I send myself blueberries from the goodie page and it just ended up on my page. It looks silly; yet I love blueberries so what the heck.

At least I am not munching while on the computer. I could be drinking water though so I will go get some right now! Once I go back to work I will drink a ton of water and eat healthy most of the time. Summer messes up my routine but thats ok. I also tell myself that I am going to go back to the gym. I pay and then don't go. Or I do go and it doesn't seem to do any good. Such confusion - no, not confusion. I need to eat right and work out. I do enjoy walking after work in the school or outside.

I know that I am rambling but that is ok too. My mom who lives next to us in a mobile home is moving 27 miles away into an apartment. She is 78 and can't handle sitting there through the long winter months. The other day I sat down and cried and cried. She has been on this farm as long as I can remember. Yet, I can't be selfish. I am hoping she will develop some friendships with other people her own age and be happier. I can visit her every weekend !! It will just be lonely for awhile. Life is ever changing and that is how God means it to be. I can say it has been a BLESSING to have lived so close to Mom for so long and that I formed a good relationship with my Dad before he passed away several years ago. I used to live with them while we built our home and each morning I would bring my Dad a cup of coffee to his room and he would say "Good morning teacher!" I cherish those moments.

I am really glad I found this web site. emoticon

    Hi,

Merry Christmas! Been off a long while...sometimes "life" takes over(lol) . I was just reading this blog, about your mom and all...and it seems you have really been giving and nuturing, that's simply great! I assist my elderly mom as well however I could help her more if she wasn't always trying to be a "super mom"...hope you guys have a great holiday season.

CONFUSION........

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

emoticon I have read and reread and I am still confused about what to do and where to do it at. I have narrowed down my categories to 3. I realize that I set goals in different places and this is not working out. How in the world do I just get down to 1 category and figure out the rest after being on the forums for awhile. My goodness. I could spend hours on here.......hmmm(not good exercise!) emoticon

    Here's my advice...go to your nutrition tracker...click "don't show meal plans". Whatver you eat, enter in "Add food". Once you get the hang of it, stay within your allowances (at the bottom in red). Also, I see you say you're a carboholic...at the bottom of you nutrition page you'll see a "button" that says "see today's full report". There will be a chart at the bottom of that window that shows how you should balance your day between carbs, fats, & protein.
Also use your Fitness tracker to "watch" how many calories you're burning. Just enter your cardio to get some totals. You can also use websites like www.coolnurse.com/calories to get some totals.
Let me know how things go & feel free to ask ANYTHING, I've been here awile! :)
