15 minutes to goal

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

Today, I finally walked before I went to work. I have been promising myself for months, that I had to get back to walking. I have been sporadically walking for last six months or so. When I think about it probably longer than that. Well, I going to end this blog because problem has been that I can't get up in the morning 'cause I'm up late at night. So , I am heading for bed now!

Favorite Foods

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

I have manually entered some favorite foods over the last year. However, when I pull up favorites, not all of them are on my favorite list. I have had several instances where I thought I manually entered a food,but then I could not find it. Today, I printed out my manually entered favorite list and compared it with my favorites list. I discovered that a lot of the manually added favorites are not on the favorite list. How can rectify this?

    It's happened to me too. Adding to the favorite list is not user friendly. If you go the message boards, under Get Help Here you can ask that question under Technical/Site Help and you should get an answer.

Life is not always a bowl of cheeries

Saturday, October 01, 2011

I just spent an hour trying to calm down my daughter. She had a big fight with her daughter. She is depressed about her relationship with her grown children. It is difficult to hear the problems she is having with them. I know she feels all alone in this problem but she is not. I experienced same problems with her when she was in her young adulthood. I survived and she will survive. She will survive and thrive in Jesus' Name!

We also talk about her failure she felt to lose weight. I talked to her about joining SparkPeople. I told her she can blog her feelings and make Sparkfriends. I hope she takes me up on it.

I am setting new goals for myself. I write more about them later.

Boredom VS Healthy Lifestyle

Thursday, September 15, 2011

Boredom get me into trouble with healthy living. When I am bored, I don't want to take the time to fix a healthy breakfast. I just want stop and get a high calorie breakfast sandwich. I know there are other alternatives, but when I am bored I get into this ho-hum not caring state. I have fallen into that state this week. I think I know what causing boredom. As I am writing, I realize it is not boredom, but depression. I am really depressed about all the medical bills that I am facing paying. emoticon

    I'm so sorry about your situation. It's hard enough having a medical condition. To have to face bills is something we don't need to have. I'll be praying that the Lord lift you out of your depression and that He bless you with His provisions and comfort.

Who knew?

Thursday, September 08, 2011

I generally eat tomatoes on a salad. I often tried to add an whole sliced tomato as side dish with lunch or dinner. However, I usually don't eat it all. It just does not seem to taste as good as on a salad

Recently, I watch Chef Meg's video on how to peel and de-seed tomatoes. It's not that I didn't know about how to peeled tomatoes; but I decided to peel them for just eating them raw. I found tomatoes are more palatable for me if they are peeled. Now am enjoying them more and more raw. Who knew such simple thing could make a change in my enjoyment of eating tomatoes? That's another reason to continue Sparking.
