The stress continues. The weight maintenance continues. :)

I need to find my center again (my equilibrium) before I can continue my weight loss journey. For now, I'm very happy to be holding my own.

  High stress is hampering my weight loss. My coping mechanism is off! Good luck, Pal! You can do this.

I had the stomach flu last year and one thing that helped me recover was popsicles.

    I always hated that. Hope you're better soon, but "weak" sounds as if it was pretty severe.

Another "no calorie, natural" sweetener has launched (again...)

Monday, July 30, 2012

Hmmm.... First - as someone who tries to follow a Paleo diet, I try to avoid processed foods and have moved away from all sweeteners (both those considered natural and artificial). Second, I'm not interested in all the marketing hype -- so Buyer, Beware.

Be SMART my fellow Spark family. If you utilize artificial sweeteners, then now you know there is a new one you may want to try. If you believe in "whole foods", and avoid processed foods, etc. - then don't be fooled by the latest claims of this being an "all natural" product. It HAS been PROCESSED because it is not a pretty powder (or crystal or whatever) form in nature...

Fruit is the perfect packaging for natural sugars because it contains the correct balance of water, fiber, and other nutrients to ensure your body can handle processing it. So if I want something sweet, I'll just continue to grab a nice ripe piece of fruit!

    You can ever slice the fruits and put them in your water to make flavored water too.

  Tink, I don't know about you, but ever since I ditched the artificial sweeteners months ago, everything I eat has tasted different. Plain coffee with a gernerous squirt of soy milk tastes great, without any added sweetness, something I couldn't have tolerated just months ago. If this is what food tastes like, then WHAT was I eating before?

Batman - Actually very good...

Sunday, July 29, 2012

Shame that so many people will not be going to see this movie due to the acts of one terrorist. I was never into the comics, but did see the TV show a few times as a kid. I really liked this movie. It did a great job setting up the future of the movie franchise should they decide to move forward with additional movies.

There was even a chance to be inspired. Overcoming physical issues. A chance to dig into the more mental side of a physical challenge. The chance to connect with what your personal goal is and what you are personally willing to do to achieve it - regardless of how hard the path may be.

As always mentioned - no real "super powers" here - just a guy with a "Spark" (ability to influence and inspire) and some really cool toys!

    I liked the batman too. And I think movies like this are better on a big screen.

    I personally haven't seen any batman movies since the first one way, way long ago. My son has seen this new one twice already and really has enjoyed it. It's nice to have a super hero with no "super" powers, just being a good person. Glad you enjoyed it. It's fun to see a movie in the theater and come away enjoying what you saw.

    I have to admit that one of the reasons I have not seen this movie yet is because of the shooting. I live in CO, and have many friends from the Aurora area. The sane part of me knows that most likely i will be able to go and enjoy the movie without having to deal with the same terror that the people in the theater that night had to deal with, but there is still a fear within me that is afraid of the copycat.

    I never will understand people....

WHY? not go see Batman just because a terriost went into a movie theater and went beserk?

This must mean then....

Nobody will now go to school?
Nobody will now fly?
Nobody will go by train?
Nobody will go via bus?
Nobody going to church anymore?
Nobody will..~~~etc...etc....etc..

These crazies are all around us and can appear anywhere!! Are we to stop living our lives because of them?
If we boycot everything that terriost's attack~then we are doing exactly what they want to acheive....to scare you into having a miserable life...

Well...NOT me~~ I will LIVE despite them!~
