Sparkling Idea for July
Make a regular sandwich, not thinking Spark-wise or anything, then, the sparklers go off in your brain, and you cut it in half and only eat half.
Rather than making only half a tiny sandwich to begin with, which seems sad all by itself. Lo... Read more
Spent two days babysitting grandchildren: a 6 month old girl and a two year old boy. Could only eat in snatches, so felt very unsatisfied and went hog wild when I got home.

1500 calories or bust!!
I tracked all my foods yesterday! I actually weighed a glass of wine. Very proud of that. The weighing make a BIG difference. It keeps me honest. But I did not weigh the pizza, so I just had to estimate it, and I probably was off.

Early Morning Streak
I am going to try that "streak" thing, boy, does it take a long time to understand some of the nuances of Spark!!! I did not understand why the page said I had zero, when I knew I had exercised, but now I see that I have to enter some of the go... Read more
Another holiday means eating down the tubes
It is like every time we turn around, there is some other holiday, complete with over-eating. Besides the holidays there are all the family birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, etc, etc, etc.

Which is better: beer or chocolate?
It is very hot today, and my normal thing is to have one beer, two beers. 300 calories. Instead I had 2 ounces of trail mix, but half of that was chocolate and peanut butter chips. (300 calories)
Now, I am not in the mood for beer.... Read more
