RIP Teresa (Unstoppable) You were loved and will be missed!

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Mourning the loss of a dear spark friend. It's been a full 24 hours since I learned of Teresa's death and I'm still in shock. Teresa (unstoppable) was a bright light here on sparks, always full of jokes and motivation for everyone. She was extremely active on here and it's just such a shock. May you RIP Teresa. The bright light and spark you ignited in others will always live on. You will never be forgotten.

Here's a link to her page where you can see what an awesome person she was and see just how much she will be missed.

Day 7 of my streak..thanks for the inspiration Pixie!!

Sunday, August 19, 2012

Thanks to my spark friend Pixie and encouragement from another special friend, I have started and maintained my exercise and eating right streak for one full week. Pixie has been on a streak for 172 days and has done awesome! She motivated me to start my own streak and while mine has only been 7 days, you have to start somewhere :-)

I have lost 30 lbs, but have basically maintained a weight at 30 lbs above my goal for the past couple of years. I have 30 more lbs I want to get off, but I am not going to focus on the numbers. I'm just going to eat right, try new recipes and exercise by doing something everyday. I started back at my gym last week and have worked on strength training and cardio. I find myself parking far away from my destination and running up and down the steps more. Every little bit of extra really does add up. I also enjoy walking in the evenings.

I found a recipe in this months Clean Eating magazine called Spicy Raspberry Chicken. I am making that this evening and will post pics and how it was later tonight.

I will take before pics tonight and post those tonight or tomorrow. I am ready to go!

    WooHoo Carla! I'm so glad you're streaking! Taking it one day at a time is the best way to go. I love how active you are with parking further away, going to the gym....and that you are not going to focus on the numbers! I look forward to seeing your pictures. I am rooting for you all the way!

Oh, before I forget...we have a "Days in a Row" thread on the Ruby team, join us if you'd like. We just update how many days our streak is, and we encourage each other to keep going or start over as needed!

The Purina Diet-good or bad?

Friday, August 17, 2012

I was at Walmart buying a bag of Purina dog chow for my dog, while in the check-out line a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. Why else would I be buying dog chow, RIGHT??? So on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again, and that I probably shouldn't because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in intensive care with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms. I told her that it was essentially a Perfect Diet and all you do is load your pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.) Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff a poodle's butt and a car hit me. I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard. Better watch what you ask me and be prepared for my answer. I have all the time in the world to think of crazy things to say. Now that you've read this I have to confess, I copied it from someone else. Share and make someone else smile today..... I thought this was too funny so I had to share with my Sparkfriends!

    I was in line behind someone once buying 12 cans of pineapple chunks and a bag of dog food. I had to wonder what kind of party she was having.
