There was one that crocheted a scarf and a light bulb went off! She provided the link which I will too and the scarf is so nice that I decided to try this. <BR> <BR> I was meeting a friend in Petaluma to see her new house and then we went out for lunch in the charming downtown. Afterwards we were walking around, I bought some heirloom seeds for our garden and was telling my friend about the project I was thinking of. She took me to her l... Wed, 30 Jan 2013 10:57:57 EST Feeling Proud! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5221995 Today I called a friend to see if she could walk with me. Unfortunately she was too busy. I stayed in bed feeling sorry and lazy. Finally I got my sorry self up and walked for 78 minutes, did 8700 steps and travelled 3.5 miles! <BR> <BR> WTG ME :) Thu, 24 Jan 2013 17:49:12 EST Keeping Positive http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5220346 Today is the time to start positive self talk! Wed, 23 Jan 2013 15:17:32 EST Having trouble with motivation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5212754 Just trying to stay motivated. Still feeling positive. The articles I've been reading are really helpful. Goal setting is really important. Fri, 18 Jan 2013 09:58:26 EST Overdid it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5210079 Yesterday I overdid the wii fit! I did over 3000 steps in 30 minutes. Really sore today. Wed, 16 Jan 2013 13:23:03 EST Had a great day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5205510 What a great Sunday. Went shopping with and for my husband. He needed some clothes. He looks so great and love to see him in work clothes. We also did a little grocery shopping and bought stuff for lunch and dinner. For lunch I made an absolutely wonderful Veggie Miso Udon Soup. I couldn't stop oohing and aahing as I was eating it! Will definitely make that again! <BR> <BR> Right now I am taking a fantasy walk along the red carpet of the Golden Globes! What amazing lives they must lead!... Sun, 13 Jan 2013 19:17:34 EST It's a work day for me. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5203460 I work on Saturdays, so today is my day. I'm taking the leftovers from my North African Chickpea and Kale Soup. It is so good! After work we are going to a get together with our neighbors to watch the 49ers - packers game.

Still trying to figure out how to just do a routine without me having to tell it what to do. I want it to guide me. Not the other way around! <BR> <BR> Last night had dinner at a Thai restaurant and had Silver Noodle Vegetable soup. So satisfying on a cold night. Then went and heard Robert Gates speak. Really great evening. <BR> <BR> Good day to anyone who may read this. Will try to get back tomorrow. Fri, 11 Jan 2013 11:20:26 EST New to Wii and am excited! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5200256 I finally got my wii fit yesterday. I set it up and went through a small workout and really enjoyed it. I clicked on the yoga and went through the, I am guessing, the body test. I was alarmed to see the results! Then I realized I was fully dressed with shoes and jacket vest. Also, I never weigh my self in the late afternoon. <BR> <BR> Who knows, maybe this morning I will have a dramatic weight loss! <BR> <BR> Anyway, a question to any of you experts out there, can you do a 30 minute or lo...
