Exercise tracker blues
Goal for today:
1. Learn exercise tracker. I find this very confusing, but the food tracker was hard to get a handle on, too, and now I feel fairly comfortable with it. I really like my exercise ball and I want to put those exercises on i... Read more
I found a few people willing to check my tracker and I am checking theirs. It makes a huge difference for me. Just like the banks, I need to be accountable!!!
Everyone is different. I cannot plan my food ahead of time. Every time I do, it... Read more
Where did the time (and calories) go?
Usually, I blog every day day. I see the last one was March 14, and now it is March 22. I have never had such a long lapse. This is very similar to what happens with the calories. Somehow, life starts happening, and time passes, and your intent... Read more
Waste of 900 calories
Last night I went to a restaurant with my fiancee. He had been given a gift card to use. I hate those gift cards. They are just a lazy way to give a person a gift, and half the time, the person does not use them. I have read that 50% of them go ... Read more

Seven grams of fiber
I had a healthy breakfast: yogurt, muesli, and maple syrup - 423 calories. Seems like too many c.'s for what I ate. Yet it had 7 grams of fiber, pretty good and it is only 9 am!!!
If I had had cheerios (much less fiber than the muesli) th... Read more
The Spark Way!!!
The Spark Way, so to speak, is an ongoing process. What I mean by "the spark way" is the process of becoming aware of what we eat, the calories, the fiber, the calcium, the salt...... And being conscious of the importance of movement. It is no... Read more
