So, I am here, groggy, spinning the wheel, and I think, " it is about time it landed on the 25 points" and it did!!!! Wonder if I... Read more
Walking- with company
Walked six miles yesterday with a wonderful walking group. Lots of fun, saw many new things, little hidden parks, flying parrots, all sorts of wonders. Would never have gone that far by myself. A month ago I had made a commitment to do it with ... Read more
I was complaining that the trivia questions were too repetitious and it was getting boring. (As if that were important enough to complain about!!!)
Well, today, it hit me in a flash: because I have moved from 67% when I started a year ago,... Read more

"Error" or "Bug"

Hmm. I did a blog on Tues and Weds and they are not here. Also, I spun the spark wheel for 10 pts and then the message came up that I had done 25 pts and I could spin the bonus wheel. I wonder if there is a bug in spark?... Read more

Not in mood to blog, but I read where Jack London disciplined himself to write 1000 words a day. I think it is important to do things even when you are "not in the mood"
I do use my moods for food choices. I can actually be "not in the mo... Read more
Do what you love
Yes, as far as exercise goes, you simply have to have another reward from doing it. When I was walking, I got a huge reward just from looking at people's gardens, discovering new places, and taking my camera along. With winter upon us, it is s... Read more
I highly recommend this. I started Coach Nicole's seated routine this morning. I could only do the first five minutes, but it is a start. This band is much easier to use than weights. I hope tomorrow morning I can do ten minutes, the next day ... Read more
