Mon, 21 Jan 2013 06:29:31 EST Drastic Times Call For Drastic Measures http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5159883 The Christmas season holds many pleasant memories for me. One is not so pleasant and I am going to change that this year. I, along with many other people put on the annual 5-10 pounds during the holiday season that starts with Thanksgiving and runs through Valentine's Day. Last year I only put on less than 5 pounds. This year I am aiming for a 0 pound gain. Can I possibly say that I want it to be a time when I actually lose weight???? Now that would be a first. I realize that I need to have a... Sat, 8 Dec 2012 04:56:03 EST What Works For Me - May Also Work For You http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5134422 All my adult life my weight has been a yo-yo. I don't have to explain it, most of you also have/had this problem. For the first time in my adult life, the weight I have gained is staying off. Why is it different this time? There are many reasons, the biggest one being that I have called "a spade a spade" and stopped lying (still have occasional slips) to myself. Who am I kidding when I tell myself that I can eat one a handful of chips or 2 cookies? <BR> <BR> Other reasons have been the suppo... Tue, 13 Nov 2012 19:39:53 EST How Much Do You Trust Your Husband? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5114353 There comes a time when a woman just has to trust her husband... for example... <BR> <BR> A wife comes home late at night, and quietly opens the door to her bedroom. <BR> From under the blanket she sees four legs instead of two. <BR> <BR> She reaches for a baseball bat and starts hitting the blanket as hard as she can. <BR> Leaving the covered bodies groaning, she goes to the kitchen to get a snack. <BR> <BR> As she enters, she sees her husband there, reading a magazine. <BR... Sat, 27 Oct 2012 06:26:13 EST MidTerm Exam: How Am I Doing on BLC20 Goals? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5104696 As part of the Sassy ShamROCK Sheriffs, we were asked in Week 5 to post our CICO (calories in/calories out) each day. I am doing a good job of tracking food eaten and exercise done. Unfortunately, I am maintaining, but not losing. I have come to the SAD, SAD realization that to lose weight, I am going to have to reduce my daily calorie limit to 1000-1200 each day. My problem area still plaques me. I should install some kind of electrical fence in the kitchen that I get an electrical jolt when... Fri, 19 Oct 2012 09:00:16 EST I Want to Be a Slender "Pear" http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5075821 Live in 130ville - that's where I want to live the rest of my God given days. My goal weight is 135. That will put me in a slender "pear" shape. Another way to think of it is I will no longer be bottom heavy. I'm not asking for much, just some shaving off those hips. <BR> <BR> My most celebrated NSV is that I fit into all the clothes that were tucked away because they were too small. It is unAmerican to NOT have any clothes that don't fit in your closet. I went out and bought 2 dresses (seco... Wed, 26 Sep 2012 13:14:25 EST Saundering to My Goal Weight http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5058707 I would love to tell you that my journey to goal weight has been a race that I completed in record time. Yes, in the past I would go on a "diet" and achieve amazing weight loss. Not this time, it has been different. In my adult years, I have never weighed this little for THIS LONG. I have made some dramatic food changes in the course of the last year. If someone would have said to me that I would go a year without eating ice cream, I would have told them that I couldn't do that. That has give...

Sat, 21 Jan 2012 12:57:01 EST New Bikes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4437439 This week we replaced our 40 year old bikes with mountain bikes from WalMart. Yesterday we took a 2.25 spin around our neighborhood. I felt pretty uncertain. This morning was beautiful and we decided to ride before the heat, humidity, and rain moved into the area. We went 8 3/4 miles today. We are surrounded by hills. Every wonderful hill we coasted down, had to be climbed up on the way home. I only had to walk up 2 of them (3 if you count when I had to stop because my chain came off.) Three ... Fri, 19 Aug 2011 21:07:11 EST First Official 5K in 3 decades http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4396987 I did it! Competed (I use that term lightly) in a 5K. My time was 46 minutes, which was 10 minutes shorter than when my daughter and I went out on the road and ran. I have been running 3 times a week. This week I need to do 6, 5, and 4 miles. That makes me tired just thinking about it. <BR> <BR> We took our team photo for the MS Bike event that we are going to be doing in September. When I went to look for a bike (mine is 40 years old) my car died. I spent some of my precious Saturday gett... Sun, 31 Jul 2011 04:52:39 EST City to Shore Bike Tour, September 24th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4386847 Our family is going to be participating in a fund raiser for MS. It's a 75 mile ride. There were to be 6 of us, but a week ago, my son in law broke his leg in an ice hockey accident. Our team's name is "A2 + a few", now we should rename it "A2 + a few - 1." We are looking forward to a great bonding experience.

Tue, 26 Jul 2011 09:09:38 EST Training for a 10K in September http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4350871 My husband and I used to run 10Ks in the 80's. That seems so long ago. We took a family trip to Puerto Rico in 2009. After a week on the beach in bathing suits, we came home and joined the local YMCA. We have contests from time to time. In March, we had one called "Rev it Up", to encourage us to increase our exercise minutes. I went from increasing my minutes from 600 to 1000 per month. Yeah for me!!! Now I am ready for another challenge. Can the old girl still run a 10K? My daughter and I ... Sat, 9 Jul 2011 08:37:06 EST
