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? Have to find ou... Read more

5% Challenge

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

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

Balance

Tuesday, September 20, 2011      3 comments

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

Saturday, September 17, 2011      3 comments

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

Trivia

Thursday, September 15, 2011      7 comments

I was out of town for a few days, and eating my old way, not recording the calories, wow, it felt weird. I am so glad to be back. I don't dare weigh myself though. I have become very fond of the Spark "trivia" questions. They are hard, a... Read more

In Jammies

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

Hunger fear?

Friday, September 09, 2011      4 comments

Get this: Last night I was eating dinner with a friend and afterwards we were going to a talk given by a bird photographer. I brought a healthy chile to share, and she made cornbread and salad. It was all very Spark friendly. But, because I w... Read more

Days off

Thursday, September 08, 2011      6 comments

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

Discovery

Wednesday, September 07, 2011      6 comments

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

Monday, September 05, 2011      2 comments

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
