Just had a shot of brandy with my 93 year old mother. She has one every day at 4pm. (see photo) She will be 94 in December and we spent time discussing the Wall Street Journal and her investments!!! Can you even believe it?

I am going to start a Spark challenge to lose 5% of my weight. I have never done anything like this before, and I am not sure if the style of it will fit with my personality, but we will see. What I have noticed about Spark is that each individ... Read more
Spoilage has its benefits
Figured out my calories before my traditional muesli breakfast. Had leftover half and half from party last week. Was going to treat myself and really looking forward to it. (can't waste it) Guess what? it was spoiled!!! So, I had to use milk, ... Read more
It is so hard to have balance in life. I would like to have just one day with nothing to do, but every day something happens. Most of the things are good, but it is all just too much sometimes. I need a day of rest!!! Still, it is better tha... Read more
Not Well Affects Fitness
I am not real sick, but just not well today, and I do not have the energy to do my Spark exercises. I am just starting to get the hang of how to enter the data. It is more complicated than the food journal and takes time to learn, but I can se... Read more

I have become very fond of the Spark "trivia" questions. They are hard, a... Read more
Wow, it is 9:15 and I am still in my jammies. I usually wake up really early, and even go on my walk by 7:30 am, but yesterday I had a big family party and the house is a mess. I have done these family parties my whole life, but now, I see the... Read more

Well, I basically took two days off Spark; one was planned, the other not planned.
I did not record foods yesterday; it is important to get back in the habit today. So, my plan for today is to do the food journal carefully. On reflection... Read more
Just discovered SparkSavings.com. Because the computer format uses the same processes of Sparkpeople, it is fairly easy to use.
I have been trying to track my money expenditures, which is very similar to tracking calorie expenditures!!! ... Read more
Taking a break
I am taking a break from Spark today, but I still want to do the blog. I am going for a long walk with a friend at Crissy Field, a beautiful place on the bay, with views of the Golden Gate Bridge, birds, clouds, and blue sea.... Read more
Bread Follies continued
I looked at the weight of one slice. The Orowheat is 38 grams and the Trader Joe is 42 grams. How could a 4 gram difference compute to a 50 calorie difference? As far as effect goes, both have the same degree of filling power. And visually, ... Read more
