A Goodbye to SP, Permanent or Semi-Permanent
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
This is just to archive what I had on my SparkPage, since some of it makes less sense with going on a permanent hiatus.

May slips away and June marches in
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 ... Read more
SparkStreak for logging in and spinning wheel goes poof
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
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
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
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
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
(... 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
I was amused to have the OUTLAW teams QOTD ask if we were seeing flowers yet. I've been meaning to u... Read more
Cardio for Heart Health
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
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
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
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
