Daffodils and Evergreens

Monday, April 14, 2014

Yesterday, when I walked the dogs, I saw a kingfisher- and boy did he protest us being at "his" pond! That evening my husband and I went for a two mile walk along the road, and when we came back we had one daffodil open for the first time this year. Today we had several. :) So cheerful.
You can see our basset hound's tail and lead in the picture too...haha.
Hubby and I planted some blue spruce today, from the Arbor Day Foundation.

I'm enjoying trying the Paleo way of eating, that I saw in my FIRST magazine for this month. I feel more energetic and alert, and only feel the need to eat 3 meals and maybe a snack. I think this is working well for my blood sugar too (I'm not diabetic, but know what it feels like to have my blood sugar out of whack). It's good to be exercising regularly too.

Spark Tracker survives

Thursday, April 10, 2014

Can you believe my Spark Tracker went through the wash, on regular cycle, with a full load of laundry, and through the dryer, and is doing fine? Crazy

Spark Tracker

Thursday, March 13, 2014

I wear it regularly, and it's kind of neat to see how many steps I've taken, but it is awfully annoying that you can't write down what exercise you did when you do a work out. It will record that amount of time for you, saying how many calories you burned, when it doesn't even know what you did. So if you don't mind having it do that (for instance, it may say I burned 94 calories when I did high intensity aerobics for 32 minutes), then no big deal. I'm trying not to let it matter to me. But I am bugged.

    Gee I don't have one, still use my old pedometer, does sound funny though, maybe on tracker team they would know how to fix.
Take care now emoticon

Flat on my back yesterday

Friday, January 10, 2014

So my husband and I went to walk the dogs yesterday, and we are walking through the six inches of new snow when I suddenly encounter pure ice under that snow. Both feet went out from under me and down I went on my back. I remember hitting at the part that is just under your neck, second, where your spine kinda "sticks out" in that area, and then my head, but my head is fine. I've been sore in spots. Definitely out of alignment in spots. I have had things moving here and there and I think I'm out of any pain now, so that's good, just some sore areas yet. I did help walk the dogs today, and the spark activity tracker knew it was a 22 minute walk I took with the dogs- I just bet I burned more than the 70 calories they put down for me, what with all the deeper textured snow I went through, but anyhoo, I used some things on my hiking boots that gave me traction this time. I think that my back appreciated the exercise, so that's good. I'm not going to push it any further today. Hopefully I'll be able to exercise more tomorrow.

My experience with the Spark Activity Tracker so far

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

I started wearing the Spark Activity Tracker night before last. That night and the next day I'm thinking...hm, it just seems to track how many steps I take- it's just a pedometer after all that? But today I was able to do some low impact aerobics (My back was bad before that, and I went to the chiropractor yesterday), and when I went to input my exercise on the website, the spark activity tracker said that it had tracked a certain amount of minutes of some kind of activity, and was asking if I would please let them know what kind it was- so I clicked on the area, and it let me choose, and of course, it input the calories. Nice. Only thing was, it didn't record the cool down time. I'm used to having the cool down time be a part of my total exercise time. Since I had also done stretch bands in the workout I decided to mark that down too- only added 18 calories, but oh well.
Just sharing my experience with Spark People's newest gadget- it's not a pedometer. :)
