Two Year Sparkversary

Thursday, February 16, 2012      4 comments

This week marks my two year "Sparkversary." In February, 2010, I found Sparkpeople (at this point I can't remember who recommended it) and joined it, needed to lose over 200 pounds. Honestly, I didn't do much with it for a few months. I looke... Read more

Whoops! What happened??

Wednesday, September 01, 2010      1 comments

I didn't meet my weight loss goal for August. Missed it by a couple of pounds. I'm not discourage by that, because the pounds continue to come off. I just had a bit of a hiccup during Stephanie's birthday week. My Spark Streaks seem to... Read more

Emotions, Stress, and Depression

Tuesday, July 27, 2010      7 comments

I've been through a lot of emotions in the last few weeks, since I have been unemployed. I don't feel "special" or unique, because I know there are a lot of people unemployed right now, and many worse off than I am. But that doesn't negate the... Read more

Stage 4 and Beyond

Thursday, July 01, 2010      1 comments

As I reach Stage 4 of the 28 day plan, I'm looking at steps to set for life. This doesn't stop tomorrow when my 28 days are over. This is a plan for the rest of my life. As I work on "spreading my Spark," I find that I have already begu... Read more

I'm in the middle of working through week 3 of the program/book. I've successfully maintained my "Sparktime," which is currently early in the morning, right after I get up. I look over the details of the day before, making sure I remember to l... Read more

Short-term goal completed

Saturday, May 29, 2010      0 comments

As of yesterday, I completed a short-term goal of exercising at least 10 minutes for 10 days in a row. In fact, for 9 of those 10 days, I exercised for 15 minutes while watching TV. Feeling better all the time. There are a couple of days that... Read more

Spark Streaks Intact

Wednesday, May 26, 2010      0 comments

I've made good progress so far. I've exercised every day for eight days in a row, now, and I've consumed 8 cups of water per day for each of those days, as well. Not much weight has dropped yet, but I'm not worried about that, at this point. ... Read more

Carrying on

Saturday, May 22, 2010      2 comments

This has been a pretty successful week in terms of "spark streaks." I've kept up exercising at least 10 minutes a day (doing the goal of 15 minutes while watching TV, which REALLY makes the time seem faster, and I'm getting caught up on Battles... Read more

And So It Begins

Tuesday, May 18, 2010      2 comments

I've just finished chapter 2 of The Spark. I joined the SparkPeople website a few months ago, at the recommendation of an internet friend. For a long time, now, I have felt very much like the person on the first page of chapter 2, that goes th... Read more
