Again

Sunday, May 13, 2012

Well here I am, again. Ready to do this, again. Ready to commit to exercise, again. Ready to stay active, not eat all the time, again.

Ready to make goals, but this time not just for weight loss. I want to make goals for me...personally and professionally. I want to knit two shawls and a sweater and crochet an afghan this summer. I want to challenge myself to play the piano each day and complete certain songs or books by specific deadlines. I want to clean my hous, I mean de-clutter and scrub. I want to find a new job...or do I want to go back to school...or both? All three of those options scare me to death.

If there is one thing I can say about my six week "Spark Break" it is that I have not gained, I even lost tow or three pounds and my clothes fit so much better. But now, it is back to being accountable and it needs to start now. Eat within reason, stopping when I feel satisfied, not stuffed. Get up and move...at least walking but I also need to get my bike in shape to use. Use those DVD's I have collected from second hand stores. Play with the kitties, they need exercise too.

Okay, those are my goals and guidelines for the summer, but they start now. Anyone out there, please feel free to give me a good kick in the butt to do this!

New Pedometer

Monday, August 29, 2011

Okay, while there are pedometer apps available for Android phones, I do not recomend them. They either stopped working when the screen turned off, kept talking to me, or took upmway to much storage on my phone. Perhaps in time they will improve, but for now, better luck at the dollar store where you can get a pedometer that can do just one thing...count your steps! When it breaks, go to the dollar store and get another one! Or do what my husband did and just pick up three right away so that you won't have to go without one!

    I have never had luck with pedometers - I don't know what I am doing wrong, but they tend to add hundreds of steps when I know I have just taken a few.

    I just joined a walking challenge and my pedometer will be in the mail soon! I can't wait to see how many steps I go in a day.

Need more Freggies!

Saturday, August 27, 2011

I am in a challenge to get 5 Freggies each day this weekend and today I am at 1 1/2. We had an early supper, so I am off to scour the kitchen for fruit and I have left-over green beans from last night.

    I will have to try the kale or spinach. I usually do strawberry, banana and peanut butter.

    My favorite way - is to add kale and spinach to my smoothies. That plus blueberries, banana, date....
Or 1/2 a green apple and a banana - yum!

Start over

Sunday, August 21, 2011

Well, I sure did have fun this weekend. I went shopping with a friend on Saturday and had a family reunion today. Needless to say, I need to start over with food tomorrow. Then I will get back on track.

Pedometer

Friday, August 19, 2011

Well, I do my best exercise by just walking around, so I was bummed that none of my pedometers worked anymore. Then I thought, "Hey, they have apps for everything else, why can't I get a pedometer app?". Sure enough, there's an app for that! Now I can log my steps!

    Pedometer apps are not that good, so today DH bought me 3 pedometers at the dollar store. I think they work better than the more expensive ones, but when they break I just get a new one!
