Love those SparkPeople trophies!
Saturday, June 18, 2016      0 comments

The most valuable part of SparkPeople for me is inspiration to exercise. I have a job that involves a lot of grading at the computer, and I love sedentary activities like reading. I don't feel like I have a lot of free time--so exercising often ... Read more

Tuesday, March 08, 2016      2 comments

Most of us live such busy lives that we tell ourselves we don't have time to exercise. I fall back on that excuse myself. So when I realize the needle on the scale is going in the wrong direction, I find the best way to get back into the habit o... Read more

Saturday, February 13, 2016      2 comments

For a long time, I've known that weight does not come off easily for me. In December, a blood test showed my thyroid to be underactive. Now I have an explanation for cold extremities and why it takes a lot of time for me to lose even a half poun... Read more
Never quite got back on track...until now
Monday, February 01, 2016      2 comments

Once I got off crutches, I never quite got back on track with exercising. Somewhere back around June I did lose a few more pounds. However, when the fall hit, I got off track with stress-eating and by January 1, I had gained 10 pounds. So in Jan... Read more
Back again--off of crutches
Sunday, April 26, 2015      0 comments

It's been four weeks today since the fall that put me on crutches. Two weeks ago I began walking slowly without crutches. One week ago, I noticed that I can walk pretty close to my old pace. I'm careful on stairs and not great about squatting lo... Read more
On crutches--doing seated exercises

The good news is that although the fall I had on this past Sunday hurt my right knee, I can get by with one crutch and put weight on that leg. I just walk very slowly. After resting quite a bit this week, I realized I hadn't exercised since Sund... Read more

This morning I completed my two SparkPeople challenges: Spring Into Shape and the 10 minutes of Exercise a Day. It's crazy, but I indicated my completion of these challenges from the emergency room on my iPhone while I was waiting and waiting f... Read more
Back on track
Friday, March 27, 2015      1 comments

One of the cool things about coming back to SparkPeople is that I have a record of my exercise for the past several years. January 2011 is when I joined, and I did great. Starting that month I logged about 1000 hours of exercise almost every mon... Read more

Even when I'm not doing as well with exercise, one thing keeps me walking once a week. I'm a volunteer who walks dogs at my local animal shelter. My daughter and I go every Saturday morning. A number of people I know had no idea that animal she... Read more

Tuesday, March 03, 2015      2 comments

Glad to report I've been exercising regularly for the past six weeks. Bounce! In the fall, I attended a weekly nutrition session at work--that weekly reminder helped keep me from getting back into bad eating habits and from gaining back wei... Read more

I lost 12 pounds last summer by early September. By the end of the fall, I lost three more pounds, but gained those three pounds back. Still, I can say that I haven't gained back the original 12 pounds lost in the summer. I was in a bit of a "ma... Read more
