There's always fattening salads, hot dogs, hamburgers, beer, desserts. You name it---nothing is healthy unless someone happens to bring a watermelon. Even the fruit salad is laden with cool whip. <BR> <BR> This year will be different for me, as far as what I serve and eat. I usually make a taco salad. I will probably get a lot of flack on Thursday, but this year I'm not making it. I got a recipe off SP for a modif...

We had 4 different vacations scheduled. I was worried about how I was going to do. In the past, my mind set was, "Hey, I'm on vacation. I'm not dieting." Then, my favorite gym closed. How was I going to get my strength training in! <BR> <BR> We just got home from our last scheduled trip this summer, and I only gained 3 pounds! Usually I can easily plan on gaining 5 pounds per trip. The difference this time: I wasn't dieting! I was eating healthy. Plu...

This is the third time I've started Spark People. And it is the last! I've been wanting to write this blog for a while now, but I was afraid I would fail! And then I thought, so what!

I have not lost as much as I wanted, and I don't always get the fitness minutes in that... Wed, 28 Mar 2012 14:19:20 EST
