12/25/12: New Beginning...

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

I want to really start this thing. I can't figure out how to get in the mood. Shall I start with diet? Shall I start with exercise? I know that if I start with too many things I will give up because I can't keep it up. I think I should start with being faithful to Oxycise. Oxycise is amazing and it will get me farther along where I want to go and make me healthier than just following a diet where I lose it too many times and give up. Okay I will start with Oxycise beginning Wednesday Dec 26th. I will track it faithfully. Done Deal! One thing and one thing only! Is that so hard? Make it a habit…

    Yay You! I know Oxycise! Works!

Since I see your blogs ebert day, I know you're on sparkpeople every day. May I suggest that you post on the consistency thread on the Breathing For Health team discussion forum?

It really helps me to expect to show others that I met my commitment.

So so sooooooo period of you & inspired.

    I'll join the rest, what's Oxycise? Breathing exercises? (I knew someone who said to lose weight, you have to breathe right.) Whatever it is, a plan is good to have so you're halfway there without walking out the door! Go you! Keep it up!

    I'm assuming oxycise is being in the habit of exercising everyday - no excuses.
Good for you. It sounds like the best way to start. Concentrate on one thing for your health before taking on too much. Exercise is the best thing for you. Oh, by the way, I plan on starting January 1, I hope. Just need the motivation!

    Find something that works for you then do it . . . stick with it.

For me, I find that tracking fitness and nutrition
PLUS portion control PLUS staying on plan are the key to success.

    I find that most people start off the easiest with the substitution method then move into planning their diet, and once thats down add in exercise.

Start off with this
If your using 1,2 or whole milk, switch to fat free
switch sugar for splenda
switch eggs for egg whites
water for soda

you get the idea. SUPER SUPEr easy way to start, and it will all help :D

Good luck I have faith in you!

    I like the way FlyLady focuses on one habit per month all year long. It's way easier to focus on just one thing at a time and get it right than to spread yourself too thin.

    Tracking is easy to start as well as making sure to get your water. I don't know what Oxycise is--something new for me to research! Keep on sparking!

    emoticon emoticon I agree with the sparker that says to track everything you eat! It is truly the way to figure out what and how much you are eating because sometimes it is very surprising! Portion control and exercise will get you where you want to go!

    My 5 cents worth would be to begin tracking what you eat and working out. That is an easy way to start. Then as you work at it for a week begin making diet changes! Too many changes can be overwhelming. The tortoise wins the race!!

    Only thing is, it can be really hard to lose weight with just exercise. Diet is a lot qicker and will lead to more lbs lost almost every time. Glenn

Twinkie wanna-bes

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

I saw Little Debbie "Cloud Cakes" on the shelf at the store yesterday! Filling in for Twinkies! Wonder how they taste. Package too big at the store. Have to go to 7 11 to find a small pkg to try. Or not. Who cares!

Merry Christmas, Spark Buddies!

"Under The Sea"

Sunday, December 23, 2012

A number of Primary Schools were doing a project on "The Sea." Kids were asked to draw pictures or write about their experiences. Teachers got together to compare the results and put together some of the comments. Here are some of them -- the funny ones. The kids were all aged between 5 and 8 years...

If you are surrounded by sea you are an Island. If you don't have sea all round you, you are in continent. (Wayne age 7)

I think sharks are ugly and mean, and have big teeth, just like Emily Richardson. She's not my friend any more. (Kylie age 6)

A dolphin breaths through an a**hole on the top of its head. (Billy age 8)

When ships had sails, they used to use the trade winds to cross the ocean. Sometimes, when the wind didn't blow, the sailors would whistle to make the wind come. My brother said they would be better off eating beans. (William age 7)

I like mermaids. They are beautiful, and I like their shiny tails. How do mermaids get pregnant? (Helen age 6)

Some fish are dangerous. Jelly fish can sting. Electric eels can give you a shock. They have to live in caves under the sea where I think they have to plug themselves into chargers. (Christopher age 7)

On holiday my Mom went water skiing. She fell off when she was going very fast. She says she won't do it again because water shot up her fanny. (Julie age 7 )

Senior Breakfast

Sunday, December 23, 2012

We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the "seniors' special" was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99.

"Sounds good," my wife said. "But I don't want the eggs."

"Then I'll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents because you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her.

"You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" My wife asked incredulously. "I'll take the special."

"How do you want your eggs?"

"Raw and in the shell," my wife replied. She took the two eggs home.

[Don't you wish you'd thought of this?]

emoticon Joyous Christmas and jolly new year, folks!

Gossip

Saturday, December 22, 2012

'Early politicians required feedback from the public to determine what the people considered important. Since there were no telephones, TV's or radios the politicians sent their assistants to local taverns, pubs, and bars. They were told to "go sip some ale" and listen to people's conversations and political concerns. Many assistants were dispatched at different times. You go sip here" and "You go sip there." The two words "go sip" were eventually combined when referring to the local opinion and, thus we have the term "gossip." '

Wish they'd pay some attention to see what the public is thinking now!!!
