I'm happy and surprised. I really only joined because my daughter keep telling me I should. To my surprise, I've learned alot, lost over 20 pounds, and enjoy it. <BR> <BR> I've even started walking every day. I never minded walking, but I wanted there to be a special destination, not just walk. Now I walk at least three miles most days. Can you believe it! <BR> <BR> Oh, well. Thanks Sparkpeople and the ones that run the challenges. I ... Tue, 29 Nov 2011 10:03:40 EST Successful trip http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4587301 Had a good visit with my grandson. I went to see him join the Computer Honor Society. I was so proud of him! Wish his Mom could have been there. Wed, 16 Nov 2011 15:16:00 EST Honors..... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4581969 Tomorrow I'm going to Philadelphia to my grandson's honor ceremony into a computer honor society. His mother is a teacher in Louisana and can't make it. She's the one who just lost her husband and had to take the last half of the year off to care for him. So she has niether the time or money to came East. I'll be proud to stand in for her. He's worked so hard to make his mother and father proud of him, and I'm very proud. <BR> <BR> She's saving her money to come to his graduation in M... Sun, 13 Nov 2011 10:00:51 EST Well done.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4554743 Had a great time in N.H. most of the time. (Went to my sister's memorial.) Must have done something right, I didn't gain any weight. The trees were beautiful, and the weather O.K. I got in two or three games of golf without getting wet or freezing. Everyone keep moving! Wed, 26 Oct 2011 18:58:25 EST Off again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4539240 We're off to N.H. Now to try to keep out of the ice cream shops. Ha! I really have to try to walk more. Here goes. Mon, 17 Oct 2011 08:04:49 EST Here I go again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4524003 Just when I thought I'd be home for a while I find out I need to go back to New Hampshire. I was hoping I could get back to my routine. I walk when I'm there and go golfing, but it's not the same. I try to watch what I eat, but we stay with my niece and she's an excellent cook. Plus we eat out alot, and the salt gets me. Oh, well. Here I go again. Fri, 7 Oct 2011 10:59:10 EST Big surprise.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4382378 I'm one of the sp who regularly get 2, 3 or at most 5 login points. BUt... TODAY I GOT 25, plus 25 bonus points!!!! I do enjoy spinning for points no matter how small a number I get. <BR> <BR> Hope everyone has a blessed Sunday. Keep sparking! Sun, 24 Jul 2011 09:17:30 EST Cancer won again! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4336185 I'm back from Louisana. Johnny lost his battle on Fathers Day. He was surrounded by friends and family. His last words were "Lord take me home", so I know he's in a better place and out of his pain. Thank you for your prayers. Thankfully my daughter has her son with her for a couple of weeks. Then he'll have to go back to college in Philadelpha. Fri, 1 Jul 2011 21:44:10 EST Cancer is winning again.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4287337 I'm waiting for a call from my daughter in Louisana to tell me her husband has lost his battle with cancer. That will mean another trip. Can't seem to get doing anything. I exercize and that's about all I can keep my mind on. I found that the yoga relaxation tape helped yesterday, so maybe I'll try again today. Please pray for my daughter and her son. They need it. Thu, 9 Jun 2011 09:25:40 EST tried yoga.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4285443 I had a tape of Yoga Relaxation and decided to try it today. I enjoyed it, so I'll try it again. Think I'll work it into my regular schedule. SP suggests you change your rutine, so here goes. <BR> <BR> I have been doing Dancing with the oldies 1 and 2, with Richard Simmons for years. Then I added walking. I'm up to 3 miles most days. Now Yoga. Should be enough. <BR> <BR> Hope everyone is doing well. Good luck, all!!! Wed, 8 Jun 2011 11:48:48 EST Success.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4272091 Well, I went to the softball tournament for 5 days and managed to exercise or walk for at least 10 every day. I only ate one hot dog. But just eating out put on a few pounds. I've lost most of it, as it was the salt. So I feel the trip was a success. Thu, 2 Jun 2011 09:49:20 EST Still going... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4250529 Still exercising every day and still walking. But when it gets too hot, I know I will not do much walking. I'll have to find something else to do. I am working hard at keeping myself busy so I won't sit and eat. Right now I'm quilting and reading. <BR> <BR> Thursday I'm going away for a few days. It will be my first chance to see if I exercise that 10 minutes or not. Wish me luck. Mon, 23 May 2011 09:59:21 EST Still at it..... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4240518 So far so good! But I really haven't been anywhere to see if I exercise when I'm not home. But I fully intend to do it. <BR> <BR> I'm still holding to my weight loss. Hope to get busy and loose a few more pounds. I know I need it! Wed, 18 May 2011 09:14:30 EST Joined 1000 day challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4219959 Today I joined the 1000 day challenge. I usually exercise an hour a day when I'm home. But---When I'm on the go (which is quite often) I don't exercise every day. I'll do better now. I can at least take a 10 minute walk. So here goes!!!! Mon, 9 May 2011 09:43:31 EST Rain http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4070765 Well the last time I blogged I bragged about walking when it was sprinkling out. Well, today it is really raining. If I walk, I'll walk in the house. I've done about 20 minutes outside and that's enough for me. Maybe tomorrow!! Sun, 6 Mar 2011 15:52:30 EST Walking http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4054538 It was sprinkling, but I insisted my friend and I go for a walk. I figured if we went around the block, we'd at least get some walking done. But as we went we decided to keep going. We ended up going our normal route. We got a little wet, but felt better for it. Mon, 28 Feb 2011 13:41:13 EST Goofed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4044294 I'm not sure what I ate wrong yesterday, but I gained .6 of a pound. I was so disappointed, but I refuse to let it get me. I will not gain again today!!!! I have trouble with salt, so maybe something I ate had too much salt in it. Oh, well. Today is another day. Thu, 24 Feb 2011 12:22:04 EST Exercise http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4039853 Another beautiful day to exercise. Today I got to change my routine. I shoveled snow! Well, that is a different exercise, isn't it? It was a good workout.The snow was heavy, so I got a strength workout. Plus I walked and did my aerobics too. Tue, 22 Feb 2011 22:09:19 EST Relay for Life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4030122 It's that time of year again to think about supporting a "Relay for Life" group. They have people walk all night (weather pemitting). So it's a good way to get plenty of exercise. It's enjoyable, and you are supporting the fight for canser. Hope you all consider it. Sat, 19 Feb 2011 12:21:02 EST I Need Help!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4021851 I've lost 12 pounds and been working at it since Nov. Now's about the time I decide I've done enough. Sure hope I don't fall into that trap again. If I keep coming to Sparkpeople, I should be all right. Here's hoping!!! Wed, 16 Feb 2011 09:05:03 EST
