Late for spark, 1 pm
Late sparking today, but I did remember. I used my smart phone to do the food tracker. You know what? I think it is easier to enter it that way. Not sure. Need to practice more, but then I can enter the calories away from my desk.

Monday, a new day
Well, today is Monday. I have been neglecting the tracking, the water, the exercise. But today is a new day. I will set some goals with a note of how to achieve them.
1. Measure the foods and track them on Spark people.
How? Put measur... Read more
Having my four Apple devices does make it pretty easy to keep up with the food tracker. But people really get irritated when you pull out your iphone to slowly tap out "pizza - five slices" So what do you do? Maybe go to the bathroom to secretl... Read more
I am a bit embarrassed about this; it may seem excessive. I have a 27 inch desktop apple computer, an apple laptop, an ipad, and an iphone!! Four devices!!! I use all of them, but in different ways. Now, of all the applications, wouldn't you s... Read more
I think most of us at Spark would enjoy this website. It heads people in the same basic direction with excellent writing and graphics. The current article is on light beer, and I never thought about it the way they do. ... Read more
Change and Spark
I really believe Spark works, but you have to be patient. By participating in all these various Spark activities, I find I genuinely do not need to eat the four pieces of See's candy out of the box. One satisfies me now. I think something has... Read more
This is another great website. I seem to be collecting food related websites. Every day they send an email about some aspect of the food industry. I am having fun with these food websites!!! I love to cook, too, and have been frequently cooki... Read more
I would recommend anyone interested in food and weight loss to find this website. I get an email from them everyday that is well crafted and helpful. I know we aren't supposed to copy stuff, but I need to do that to give you a sense of it-- the... Read more
Still one pound down
Hey, that rhymes. Maybe should use it as a mantra! I tell you, it is true success breeds success. Now, I am really much more motivated today to do my exercises and eat properly. And, that should lead to another pound down.... Read more
Lost One Pound (real)
I think I actually finally lost one real pound. We will see. I think everyone knows what I mean by a real pound. I know SP says only weigh once a week, but other websites say to do it everyday. Weight fluctuates by 3 pounds and so it is really ... Read more
Blog did not go through
Posted a blog entry, just now, but it did not go on. Maybe too many people are using spark.
Just wanted to report a success. Had lunch at a restaurant and ordered crab louie, really good, felt I ate well, yet did not overdo it.
Wanted... Read more
For the first time in two weeks, I logged all my foods, breakfast, lunch, dinner, middle of the night snack, and 4pm snack. It all came to 2000 calories. When I did the feedback, I had actually attained all my nutrient levels for the very firs... Read more
Habits of mind
Very important to keep this blog habit up. I always loved writing, and used to do a a diary as a kid, then a journal in my 20's, and used to write letters (remember those?), and I loved reading. Reading and writing go together, don't they?

I appreciate other's reading my blog even when I have not much to say. Spark is definitely right in saying how important the community aspect is. When your life is disrupted, it is crucially important to keep to your habits even if you just re... Read more
