Sorry for not being as active of late!

Sunday, June 19, 2011

I have been busy... Yes, I know we all are but it is the truth because Spark People has me hooked and for me not to be around as much is an unlikely thing. Also, we still have blackouts every now and then and that also keeps me from getting on when I do have time. It's kind of frustrating for me but I'm here and will be here for you all.

Hugs to all my friends.

Lise

Life's Like That (Reader's Digest)

Friday, May 13, 2011

I love Reader's Digest and I found a June 1988 issue in my husband's study. I found this cute article.

Quote

I was probably the only person in our rural town who didn't have a vegetable garden. Finally, I decided to start a tiny plot and planted peas. As I finished, my neighbor - a native to the area - dropped by. "What'd you plant?" he asked, nodding at my freshly dug plot.

"Peas," I answered proudly.
"You forgot the headstones."
"I did?" I asked weakly, wondering what headstones were.
"You've planted those peas so deep," he said, shaking his head, "they deserve a proper burial."

UNQUOTE

Being a city girl, I wouldn't have known any better myself. emoticon

Trivia points are getting way better!

Monday, May 02, 2011

The simple fact that I regularly respond to the quizzes has improved my Trivia Points. There comes a point where the information given starts to actually register in this brain of mine. emoticon I enjoy the quizzes because I am learning at the same time. Spark People, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

    Totally agree with this - I feel like I am really becoming educated on healthful eating and exercise habits - doesn't it feel great to have that reenforced by nearly perfect (or perfect) scores on the trivia and quizzes?

Very motivational and good reminders to reenforce the knowledge so it really sinks in.

Enough is enough... Time to get serious here!

Sunday, May 01, 2011

Wow, today is already May 1st. At the beginning of the year, I promised myself that I would reach my goal in 2011. Can I do this? You betcha! It will not be easy but I AM GOING TO REACH MY GOAL BY DECEMBER 31st!

Weighing presently 150.48 lbs, and with a weight loss of 4 lbs per month here is my new schedule:

June 1st - 148.48 lbs
July 1st - 144.48 lbs
Aug. 1st - 140.48 lbs
Sep. 1st - 136.48 lbs
Oct. 1st - 132.48 lbs
Nov. 1st - 128.48 lbs
Dec. 1st - 124.48 lbs
therefore by December 31st I should have reached 120 lbs!!!

Since October 2010, I have been stagnating around 150 lbs and it's too much for me. I met someone yesterday and she was slightly taller than myself and I found that she looked pleasantly round. We both have about the same type of body so I could judge for myself that I needed to slim down some more. I no longer want to be thin as a person my age, we need a bit of fat on our bones for health reasons.

I CAN DO THIS!

    Sounds like you've got a great plan, and you can definitely achieve your goal. Just remember those little rewards along the way, make a little incentive scheme for yourself and you'll soon be motivating yourself when you feel yourself wandering away from your plan!

    Of course you can do this! You will definitely do this...have you thought about changing anything to be sure to reach your inchstones? For instance, I started out with yoga - which I loved - but that wasn't enough to really burn fat. Zumba has been awesome and changing things up with exercise. And today I just came back from a rebounder class (like a little mini trampoline)...I think maybe mixing it up a bit on your fitness routine could be something to consider. Confusing my body at least seems to work! Do you agree it might be worth a try?

You've been such a great supporter of me...hope you don't mind me thinking of you.
