A Goodbye to SP, Permanent or Semi-Permanent

Tuesday, July 16, 2013      48 comments

As mentioned in my feed and on my Spark Page, I'm going on a permanent (or semi-permanent if I randomly decide to return) hiatus from SparkPeople. I'm not deleting my page or removing teams or friends, just in case I do return for any reason, b... Read more

16 July 2013 - Past information from SparkPage

Tuesday, July 16, 2013      1 comments

This is just to archive what I had on my SparkPage, since some of it makes less sense with going on a permanent hiatus. emoticonRead more

Time for reviewing June goals and making July ones. == June goals == 1) Average calories under 3000. emoticonRead more

May slips away and June marches in

Monday, June 03, 2013      10 comments

Oh my, oh my. Another month bites the dust, and another month gone, etc. Where did I get to with regards to my goals? 1) Track eating daily emoticonRead more

SparkStreak for logging in and spinning wheel goes poof

Friday, May 17, 2013      19 comments

It would have been 608 days with Thursday's spin. Instead, at the time I chose to make my spin, just as it finished and went to submit, SP took a critical dump. Next thing I knew, the status page was saying it would be around 4 hours for them ... Read more

A week of tracking so far

Saturday, May 11, 2013      13 comments

As I set my goal to do, I started tracking again as of 4 May. I am using a software called Living Cookbook rather than SP. The key reason for that is the software does a bit more including kitchen inventory (helping me keep track of what I hav... Read more

Mayday, Yes I May, Jennifer May makes May goals

Thursday, May 02, 2013      10 comments

It is May. (Yes, you MAY have already known that.) Today is May Day / Mayday, which to my memory was often pictured with a maypole, girls in spring dresses and flowered crowns dancing and weaving ribbons around it. Not that I ever actually sa... Read more

General Goals with Food

Monday, April 29, 2013      12 comments

I've been slacking for over a month now on food, eating more than I should, eating a lot more sweets than I need, being really lazy about cooking anything. On Friday I got a wakeup call of sorts. See ... I am definitely a food lover. Not ... Read more

Strength training - what can we focus on

Tuesday, April 16, 2013      11 comments

I said this in my previous blog, but wanted to expand on it more: "I do strength training for strong muscles and healthy joints, ligaments, and tendons." I rarely do things for just one reason. I love when I can live the cliche “two birds... Read more

Blue's Back Blogging

Monday, April 15, 2013      14 comments

(... and applying alliteration apparently.) I've been really quiet on the blog front, I know. One of the things with participating actively in the BLC (Biggest Loser Challenge) is that most of my other Sparking activities were side-lined. ... Read more

Flower pics from walk at lunch last week

Cardio for Heart Health

Friday, March 08, 2013      10 comments

I had a really odd (to me) realization last night. I do my weight work (strength training) for fitness reasons. I love feeling stronger, more capable physically. I love knowing my bones are strong and my joints and tendons and ligaments a... Read more

Catching up on February

Wednesday, March 06, 2013      8 comments

Seems like I've been doing this a lot lately -- sliding a day behind here, a week behind there. Here it is nearly a full week into March and all I managed to do was LOOK at my February goals and briefly ponder their completion, or more appropri... Read more

Proactive versus Reactive

Monday, March 04, 2013      15 comments

I've mentioned this book before -- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I was originally exposed to the book and the concepts at a seminar 20-some years ago, and am very glad I was even if I still have yet to fully implement some of the con... Read more

Honesty and Discipline

Thursday, February 28, 2013      9 comments

Just wanted to make a little addendum to my previous blog. First, I have to admit I can learn quite a bit from the responses to my blogs. We may all see the same world, but it is fascinating how much difference point of view can make. Our... Read more
