Last night got a bit too late getting caught up on statuses and SparkFriend's blogs, so I didn't get this written earlier. I've been thinking lately about how different my workouts are than I originally had planned and how much I'm enjoying the... Read more
So, the mini-ugh first.
Without getting into all the details, BFE (bestest friend ever) and his recent love-of-his-life are having troubles. Problem is ... if they're fighting and not talking, he turns to me both because he's bored and wan... Read more
Moving right along, my eighth month of healthier living sees me at 191.5 pounds. Having started at 250.5 pounds, that is 59 pounds (as I called it in my previous blog - on the cusp of 60 pounds). Pretty crazy to realize my original goal of 160... Read more
As I'd mentioned in another blog, many many years ago (two decades or thereabouts) I had read "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People". I'd gone to a seminar by the same name. I had purchased audio cassettes that I listened to a couple of tim... Read more
First the woohoos.
The first I passed maybe a week ago, maybe a little more, but didn't make a big deal about. The site on which I record my weight daily (in addition to SparkPeople) tells me extra information such as my calorie deficit ba... Read more

So many things going on. I initially was thinking to stuff them all in this blog, but it would be WAY too much. So first about my new toy! (My brother has labeled me JenniGeek now.)
Back in mid-April my Spark... Read more
To try to answer why I'm making sodium a focus in my goals, first the reason why we often hear sodium levels talked about as a concern:
"High levels of sodium can cause the body to retain too much fluid. This can be harmful to people with ... Read more
Another month bites the dust, and another month down, and another month down, another month bites the dust. Time to take a look at how I did on my goals for April:
1) Weight stably at or below 195.
** Not quite. I saw 194.5 one day, the... Read more

Protein gram = 4 calories
Carbohydrate gram = 4 calories

Today's health news article for me was certainly of interest. ( www.sparkpeople.com/reso urce/health_news_detail.as p?health_day=663963 )
I know. Sometimes I can seem to be ridiculously healthy. And even I don't think... Read more
Most likely not, but a good reminder that I do have that little insecure voice in my head somewhere. Thankfully she's never been strong enough to overwhelm me.
This came about tonight while working out at the gym. A group of three or four... Read more
First off, the elliptical.
I remember the first time I set foot on one. I asked one of the gym employees to show me how to get started. I wasn't even sure if it was going to work for me because of knees and ankles, but figured I would giv... Read more
