Double Nickle

Thursday, September 08, 2011

I was blessed to see another birthday last week. I never thought I would be happy to turn 55, yet I am. Why?

1. I am in reasonably good health, despite the excess 50 pounds. My doctor even said so.
2. I now qualify for a few senior citizen discounts.
3. I see light at the end of the work tunnel. Retiring at 60. ( Please God?)
4. I can still do what I want with my life

I am choosing to keep on Sparking and working towards my goal. I feel discouraged often but I learned on this site to never give up. Heres to a healthy life.

See ya around. Peace and love fam.

    First of all, Happy Belated Birthday!! Secondly, your attitude is marvelous! We all have things to be thankful for and sometimes we forget the good and concentrate on the bad. Thank you for helping me see that.

Have a great day!!

I'm Baaa-aakkkkk!

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

I have been MIA for a few months for various , though not good reasons. I have been going through the motions and feeling miserable. I missed SP but could not motivate myself to get back into the fold. It seems as if I have been just wandering aimlessly through my journey to a healthier and lighter me. I havent exercised, other than some gardneing and a few days of mall walking, for over a month. Surprisingly, I havent gained more weight. Thats probably because its so hot here and I have been eating lots more fruit and salads and cool light foods.

Anyway, I have missed my Spark friends and I know I do better when I log in daily. It's so good to be home. Peace Fam.

    You came back just as I was leaving. The last day that I tracked food was on June 2nd. The entire month of June I ate what I wanted, didn't track, barely exercised and stopped blogging daily.

I gained a pound back and I know I don't want to undo all the hard work that I've I'm back, too! emoticon

    emoticon back. I find it that when I am having my off days, I would force myself to log in and just to do something on SP and it helps a little. Glad you log in and didn't gain any weight. emoticon emoticon

March Madness

Thursday, March 31, 2011

It took me until March to get some consistency and dedication to this lifestyle change I am so desperately seeking. It took me getting mad at me for my many moments of weakness. I started the month doing the Daniel Fast which was pretty good but after a week I faltered. I got back up and kept chugging. I exercise an average of 5 days a week. I ate better and worked harder. I have lost a total of 6 pounds and I feel great. Anxious to keep it up in April. I know that the more I am engaged with SP the better I do. I have even been tracking my food. I am on a roll and don't ever want to fall.

My Weakest January

Monday, January 31, 2011

I have no exercise minutes for this month. I have less than 200 points for this month. My SPARK friends have been inquiring as to my whereabouts. I have been feeling yucky and less than motivated. I know my weak showing is in part because I have not been faithful by logging on each day and interacting with SP. I'm back and committed. I really do love me, I just need to do a better job of taking care of me.

  Be encouraged. I am also on the road to doing a better job of taking care of myself. It's habitual to forget self when there's a million things to do and others to care for, but be mindful that until you start taking better care of you, the BEST you is not available for anyone else.

Defies Logic

Sunday, October 31, 2010

People with Acid Reflux Disease should:
-Avoid greasy, spicy foods
- Avoid eating late or close to bed time
- Eat smaller meals
This weekend, I was out of control. I broke all these rules and I am
now paying dearly for my gastronomical transgressions.

Why cant I stop this?????

    Hello, fellow Spark person ! emoticon

As a new member, I enjoy reading other blogs for inspiration, and even though this is an older blog entry, I had to comment because I could have been reading about myself !! emoticon I also have problems with acid reflux. But I have often eaten too late in the evening, or actually awaken in the middle of the night with that hungry feeling, got up and ate something that I know was not going digest well, and before getting back in bed, I would sit my Gaviscon tablets and a glass of water on my nightstand, prepared for the inevitable indigestion. Now, please tell me, WHAT SENSE DOES THAT MAKE ?? emoticon I'm doing much better now, since I joined SP. But, it is so easy to slip. I just pray each day for wisdom for THAT day !!

Here's wishing you success on your journey! And just let me say, GIRRRLL, YOU KNOW YOU CAN REALLY WEAR A HAT !!!! emoticon

    It is all a learning process. And learning is a good thing - right? :)

You are doing just fine. Nobody is perfect - thank goodness - because perfect seems boring anyway.

Keep on learning - it's good for you (like vegetables :)

Good job, gorgeous.
