Using Your Mind

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

While I walk, I have several ways to exercise my mind as well as my body. I sing hymns to myself and try to remember all the words. I pray as I walk. I sometimes write poetry in my mind and write it down when I get home. It makes walking a pleasure and keeps my mind active.

    Those are wonderful activities you are doing. I am sure the Lord is pleased. Too many concentrate on their care instead of those positive thoughts. emoticon emoticon emoticon
for sharing!

Knitting Away Temptation

Monday, May 17, 2010

I remember the days before I found Sparkpeople, when I used to fill any spare time I had by grabbing a quick snack, not caring what that snack might be. Now, when I have "time on my hands", I pick up my knitting and the rhythmic motion of my hands and the needles calms me, takes my mind off food and fills my creative urge. Right now I'm knitting a peach colored sweater using yarn I purchased in Ireland. I'm using large needles, so it's going really fast.
When I finish it, I'll post a picture of me wearing my new sweater.

    I love knitting and crocheting. It makes my hands feel better( arthritis in hands ). but summer months make it hard to knit too hot and humid here in Florida. carolyn

Picking Strawberries

Monday, May 10, 2010

My husband and I went to a strawberry farm today and picked beautiful red ripe strawberries for $1.50 a lb. We brought home 7 lbs of strawberries, picked in about a half hour. It was great exercise, we met lots of friendly people and we now have strawberries to eat now and to freeze for strawberry jam or strawberry ice cream or just to pop in my mouth for a snack. I froze the individual strawberries on a cookie sheet and will package them in freezer bags after they're frozen. Good exercise and good nutrition all in 30 min.

    Now, that I call a double blessing, Peggy. I am allergic to strawberries, but accept the consequences and have a serving of strawberry shortcake once a year. lol Enjoy those strawberries and keep up the exercise berry picking or not! Hugs, Jane emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh how I'm looking forward to fresh strawberries here! We don't get them till later on in June. I used to freeze mine on cookie sheets too but now it is just me who eats them, I freeze them in small freezer bags. Love the homemade strawberry jam too!

A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

I'm so glad I entered the Sparkpeople Official After Contest. Even though I didn't win, the contest motivated me to get my husband to take a picture of me now that I've reached my goal and stayed there for three years. Using that picture as my profile means that every time I look at my Sparkpage, there's a reminder of how I want to look for the rest of my life, no matter how many years that may be. I think I'll get him to print out a copy of it to post on my refrigerator, so I'll keep focussed on healthy meals and snacks that are low fat, low salt and low calorie. It'll also remind me to keep up my 30 minutes of yoga each day and even expand it to 45 min. I've found that anything that keeps me motivated, such as rereading sections of "The Spark", tracking my meals and exercise, and chatting with my teammates is definitely worth the time it takes.
