HUBBYANDI's SparkPeople Blog HUBBYANDI's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community How do I waste my time? I rarely blog, but since Spark Coach is encouraging it, I guess I will give it a shot. <BR> I had to think about this question, as I tend to be a fairly busy person, and still have time to waste-I'm sure we all do! <BR> <BR> I think that time I spend looking up how many calories something is when I am not sure about it wastes a LOT of my time-I guess that's why I get discouraged about logging all my calories in a day. I wish there was an easier way to find all the calories I consume! I try ... Fri, 10 Aug 2012 18:55:59 EST My Vision Statement Revisited Chapter 2 Q. What personal values do I want my daily life to express and reflect? <BR> I want first of all to reflect God's love through me. I can use the gifts God gives me to help others. <BR> Caring for my grandchildren while my daughter works is one way I can use my abilities. It is a blessing to spend time with them each week and watch them grow. <BR> I feel I have more confidence in myself because I am not ashamed to be seen. Before I always wanted to "hide" behind someone so people didn't se... Mon, 23 Jan 2012 16:01:12 EST My Vision Statement revisited Chapter 1 Because of space issues, I am posting this in more than one blog entry: <BR> On June 23, 2011 I sat down and with the questions provided by Sparkpeople, wrote out my Vision Statement for Weight Loss. Today, my dream was realized when I weighed in at my set goal weight! So I have decided to revisit those goals that I made exactly 7 months ago, but actually had in my head 2 years ago when I decided to make this radical change in my life. <BR> <BR> I will share exactly what I wrote, on that d... Mon, 23 Jan 2012 15:45:51 EST My January Resolutions I am almost at goal...actually before Christmas I was 1 lb from goal and got sidetracked with all the extra food and goodies, but have not forgotten or "thrown in the towel" with my weight loss goal! <BR> I am back on track today with more fruit and healthy eating again, and added some exercise videos into the mix today which is a jump start too, as I joined the SP January Jumpstart Challenge. <BR> I know that in the next week or so I will be at my goal, and it's taken me an incredibly long ... Wed, 4 Jan 2012 14:27:57 EST The Start of Another Year I have now been in the SP family for a year. I have gotten so much closer to my goal weight. I am still working on it daily, but the inspiration I get from SP is so that I can feel comfortable and know that I will make it! <BR> Each day I remember that I have made it this far and there's no obstacle too big that I can't get through on this journey. <BR> I feel better about myself and know that with God's strength, my friends and family, and my wonderful SP friends, I can make it to the goal... Tue, 19 Apr 2011 15:30:47 EST Start of a new me <img src=""> <BR> <BR> I joined today and am looking forward to this exciting new venture in my life. I have spent a long time getting to this point and will be happy to see some results in the near future. Sat, 10 Apr 2010 21:35:38 EST
