On a scale of one to ten.........

Monday, February 08, 2010

I will give myself an 8, how's that! This blog is a follow-up to yesterdays. I learned that I'm not the only health-conscience person in church! Remember I mentioned I brought the celery, carrots, and low-fat dip? When I went to the tables where we put the food, there already was a huge tray of carrots and celery! And not only that, someone brought in 2 huge trays of fresh, cut-up strawberries and peaches! YAY! My favorite fruits and veggies! Yes, I feasted out on those and was happy with that! The reason I'm rating myself an 8 is because (and I won't lie), I had one small cheese pizza slice, 4 chicken wings, and about a 2" cube of cake. However, at the same time I am proud of myself for not going back for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th helpings, no kidding, I used to gorge out like that. And plus I don't drink alcoholic beverages; I stuck with water and diet Coke. And thank you for your support and great suggestions spark friends!! If any of you need support, don't hesitate to visit my page or drop me a line, I mean that!
By the way, I had a great time and as much as I was routing for the Colts, I am happy for the Saints winning! emoticon emoticon

    Chris: I am happy for you that you did so well at the big party. Like you, I was pulling for the colts, but I'm happy for New Orleans.

Good News/Bad News

Sunday, February 07, 2010



Hi everyone! As you know, today is superbowl Sunday. The good news is that I'm going to a superbowl party at our church. They are a great bunch of nice and fun people and it's gonna be a blast routing for the best team to win as we watch on a huge-screen HD TV. Here's the bad news: there will be LOTS of food there and I do NOT want to go overboard. I'm posting this blog so I will be accountable. I know the wise choices to make, SP taught me that. This thing is, everyone is bringing something and I don't know if they will be the healthest choices. This much I can tell you: I, myself, am bringing a dish of cut up celery, carrots, and low fat yogurt dip. Maybe, just MAYBE some other members will do the same. So this blog doesn't end on a downer, I'm gonna end it with this: I'm gonna be with my son, daughter in law, and people I love! Enjoy your evening!

    I always make sure to bring something healthy as a "fail-safe" to fall back on if there isn't anything else.

GL! You can DO THIS! :-)

    Obvious: Eat before you go, stay hydrated, mingle and cheer the team on, maybe chew some gum so it's inconvient for you to eat.

Not so Obvious, you can have tastes of things you really want to try. Take a bite, close your eyes and notice the tecture, flavor, and anything else you can notice. Chew it well, savor it, enjoy it, then swallow. That's all you need.

You can do it!

I'm on a winning streak!

Thursday, February 04, 2010

At work today, as I was listening to our local radio station at my desk, the DJ offered a pair of tickets to this weekend's Home & Garden show in Virginia Beach at the Convention Center. He gave a few hints of a famous singer and whoever was the first to call in and get the right answer would win. Ok, so I dialed, thinking I'd just get a busy signal (as usual LOL), but I was shocked to hear it ringing and almost dropped the phone. I gave the answer and won the tickets! I am going with my daughter in law Sunday to enjoy it! I can't wait! In case you're wondering, here were the clues that were given (I don't remember word for word, but you'll get the idea): "he sang "It's Not Unusual" while he gyrated on stage making women's hearts beat (something like that)". Tom Jones (be still my foolish heart heh heh). Well, now I'm gonna download some of his music emoticon emoticon

I'm not one to win anything either but was thrilled this holiday season to win a pair of Nordic Walking Poles from AARP...woo hoo! Had been thinking about buying them too...!

Have a SUPER time at the convention! :-)

I received two trophies from SparkPeople for Consistency, January 2010, and 500 Monthly SparkPoints! How nice is that! And tomorrow, the 4th, will mark my two-year Sparkversery! One of the best decisions I made! Granted, I stumbled along the way and had a few setbacks, but with God's help and my Spark friends, I will keep on keeping on!
Once again, thank you SparkPeople and spark friends! LOVE YOU!!

Great news!

Friday, January 15, 2010

This is a follow-up to my previous blog. Our friend (Roger) received word that his family is OK! THANK YOU for your thoughts & prayers, spark friends. The waiting for any confirmation must have been torture, as I said we were feeling his pain along with him. We will continue to show support for everyone else in Haiti that weren't so fortunate.

    What a relief! There is so much suffering going on in Haiti, it's just heartbreaking. I have donated money by texting the word Haiti to 90999 but I wish I could do more. If I could be there to help I totally would. Thanks for sharing.
