Oh, the Apps

Monday, April 13, 2015      5 comments

I'm not a millenial so they don't come as easy to me as breathing. I'm not a techie, but I work for a small start-up software company as a trainer to those who use the software. I am a translator from tech to average user. So I always ask techie... Read more

Dancing With Myself

At 64 pounds overweight, I figured I'd better do exercise I enjoy. Note: I did NOT say do something I am good at. I said something I ENJOY. So, I'm dancin' with myself (oh oh uhoh...) And it makes me happy. And gosh almighty,... Read more

From the Mouths of Babes

Friday, November 07, 2014      8 comments

I weighed in today, the "first" day of my effort (of THIS round of efforts). As expected, I lost a pretty good chunk of weight, as history has told me this is the case. But because I am using the advent calendar to remove pounds as I lose t... Read more

My Goal/Reward Sheet (with kids' input!)

Tuesday, November 04, 2014      6 comments

After our Wii "Just Dance Marathon" last night, I asked the kids to give ideas for rewards for weight lost. For those of you who looked at my last blog, you saw an advent calendar of sorts, where I (or my kids) will rip up the numbers of pounds ... Read more

A New Approach...? See photo.

Monday, November 03, 2014      7 comments

A visual reminder for the entire family that they have to help me with this. This sparked a lot of questions from my kids. My 16-year-old: "What's this?" Me: "It's my remi... Read more

A Quick Fall Lower-Cal Dessert Recipe

Thursday, October 16, 2014      3 comments

A friend gave me a recipe for pumpkin muffins that is super easy. She said it was a Weight Watchers recipe. I modified it then entered it into the calorie counter I use. Give either a try - you may want to enter the ingredients into your own cal... Read more

Your water, infused

Monday, August 04, 2014      4 comments

On impulse, I bought a water bottle based on a spot I saw on Good Morning America's "Deals and Steals." It is a personal water bottle that allows you to have flavor-infused water. My water flavor of the day is cucumber cilantro. My sister ... Read more

A Little Inspiration

Wednesday, July 09, 2014      4 comments

Read this on my LinkedIn account today (if you have an account, you probably saw it, too): "Stay committed to your dreams and you'll see them reflected in your future." and the image that came with it - very cute... Read more

Me & Mom Time

Thursday, July 03, 2014      5 comments

Since putting my then 66-year-old father in a nursing home full-time last year due to his Alzheimer's disease, my mother has not had a break - * She remodeled the basement of her home, which was 'almost' an apartment, to make it into a liva... Read more

The Difference

Tuesday, June 24, 2014      7 comments

I watched an episode of "Extreme Weight Loss" tonight, quite by accident. I'm traveling, and was flipping through channels in my hotel room as I sit at my computer. I came across it, and watched. And cried, of course. I'm learning what... Read more

Back in the USS...A

Tuesday, June 03, 2014      8 comments

Because I have a song from the Beatles on my brain, and nothing ends in "USA." Anyway... I took a trip to the UK. It was because of work that I went, so I took some extra days and an extra person (my husband) and we took a few days of enjoy... Read more

A Little Perspective

Wednesday, April 30, 2014      9 comments

I put on a pair of summer shorts this past weekend and at first was angry about them fitting. These are the shorts I wore last summer, the shorts I wanted to have shrunken out of. But then I realized that had I not lost the 10 - 15 lbs that... Read more

Face it, I gotta maintain

Monday, April 28, 2014      4 comments

So here's the deal. I have grand plans for a month's challenge, even ask my SparkFriends or brother or husband to join me, then I eat crap until I hurt. It's like planning out a hike using a very detailed map and then leaving the map behind... Read more
