4 years with the Spark family

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

Just another boring, blah blog, one of these days I'll get it together and write an awe inspiring story.

The summer is going by so fast, I can't believe it's August already, my vacation is almost over :(

My husband came home for his vacation last week and we have been busy ever since. Right now, we are re-arranging things around the house and doing sight-seeing.

I've been on SparkPeople for 4 years now, originally lost 20 lbs but gained it back plus. I won't give up and I will keep doing my best. My biggest problem is motivation and the lack of it.

Time to get up and go to the gym

    Congratulations on "4"!!!!! Motivation has always been a problem with me, especially after an injury. At least you recognize what is holding you back. And that is half the battle. Keep trying, keep blogging, keep tracking, and above all, keep moving! I wish you success as you continue on your journey to better health.

    emoticon emoticon on four years with Spark people -WAY TO GO!!!
I am glad you are doing some sight seeing. Now the grands are back home we are too. Bar harbor was great. Walked the rail trail 4 miles. I find walking is my very best exercise. I have to restart using my resistance bands for Strength.
You are so right. T waited for you to get home and now you are almost ready to go back. e are off to the Coastal maine botanical gardens tomorrow and to Bangor Gardens on Friday, Saturday a concert and Sunday is the FORT WESTERN re-enactment. Woo Hoo this is living in the fast lane all of a sudden i love it. Wish we had time to meet. Pat in Augusta

    Hey, get off your duff and go to the gym!!!

That was intended in the most motivational way I knew emoticon

Hang in there and keep at it. The way to change your life is one step at a time, but to just keep stepping. Sometimes we go down the wrong path, but the key here is to just keep plugging away.

Wishing you much success!!!

Can't believe my vacation is almost 1/2 over, I've been busy with family and it will get busier soon.
Took my daughter and 1 grandson to New York state to visit a good friend and family, did some shopping, have gone to drs. a few times, done some tourist stuff, done a lot of cleaning and exercising.
Back to the gym on Monday for a few days then I'm off to Central NY to visit family for a week.

Haven't blogged in a while

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

I'm all settled in and getting busy. I made it back to the gym and really enjoy getting in a good workout with my gym buddy Holly.

This is Bike week in New Hampshire so there are lots and lots of motorcycles here. Wish my husband was here with me so we could get on his Harley and ride on down, he's not here so my daughter and I will drive down to the tourist train, take that and won't have to worry about parking. Then I have several stops to make this next week and next week with my daughter.

The Biggest Loser challenge also starts this week, we'll see how that goes.

    Hi I knew you would be super busy. Just maybe you and your daughter might go to the gardens they are so lovely. Do you have grand children.
I rode my motor scooter all over the place when i was 16 years old. I used to be a rock climber and when we went to the hills to climb I was pillion on my friends bike. I loved rock climbing till I met DH and I gave it up.
We will go over to Plattsburgh to see our son and hopefully we will bring the kids back to Maine to our very cold pool. So far the kids have enjoyed the pool as their father did. I never make too many plans that way I get less disappointments. En joy time with your daughter, your DH will be here pretty soon. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Funny, when I first read "ride on down," I thought it said "get on his Harley and ride until dawn." I bet you've done that, though!

For Some, Exercise May Increase Heart Risk

Friday, June 01, 2012


Could exercise actually be bad for some healthy people? A well-known group of researchers, including one who helped write the scientific paper justifying national guidelines that promote exercise for all, say the answer may be a qualified yes.

    Hi again, this article led me to other articles I would never have found thanks for the information. Nothing to do with heart and exercise but to do with OCD and anxiety disorders. Thanks Pat in Augusta. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Back at the gym

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Yesterday I met my friend Holly at the gym, I was so excited to see her, it's been a while. I joined again for 3 months and will add another one on in Sept. Today I went for my first workout and it was good except for all the testosterone going on. The grunting, screaming, snorting, yelling, sweating all over the equipment, eeewww. Hopefully I can stay on track now.

I am so with you with the testosterone thing. I like to exercise out doors as much as possible HUGS emoticon emoticon emoticon
