How do we keep from feeling starved?
This is my conundrum!!! I know Spark has ideas. I will look a few up after I finish this blog.
I have slacked off on my strength exercises, and I want to get back to them. It is so hard to establish a habit like that, isn't it? I have no... Read more
My Fitness Pal
I really like the clean, clean interface of My Fitness Pal. Nothing to distract you. However, I also like Spark. So, here is how I can do both. I am going to Spark first thing in the morning, doing the trivia and the blog, and the trackers. W... Read more
Okay, I am laughing at myself, and that is Good.
Here I am: upstairs (computer is downstairs)....I go downstairs to enter my foods in my Spark tracker....I get on the computer.....I go to about ten different websites....read email....go bac... Read more
I love Monday!!!
Of course, when I worked, Mondays were not any fun at all. Now, it is wonderful to be able to feel fresh and starting all over again. I am going to start a jewelry making class, and I plan to walk to it!!! It will take about 45 minutes. I ma... Read more
Both Spark and Fitness Pal
So far, it has been pretty easy to do both Spark and My Fitness Pal. I can be more specific with Spark, and then just enter a shortened version on the other website, and get the immediate feedback. The interface is much cleaner and I think just... Read more
My Fitness Pal
I don't think My Fitness Pal is as accurate as Spark, but I have been only doing it, along with Spark, for a week. I am desperate for some motivation, and I find it motivating. Spark has such a huge range of entries, way more than My Fitness P... Read more
Morning comes again. Wonderful morning. A time to start over. I am going to continue with Spark, but also do My Fitness Pal. The interface is cleaner and it motivates me. I am not going to do the 5% challenge because I did three and did not los... Read more
Blogging really does help me. I did a journal my entire life off and on, so it is rather easy for me. Of course, I think it is more therapeutic to write by hand. I read Julia Cameron's book, The Artist Way, and she has very good reasons as to ... Read more
I am analyzing which parts of Spark help me and which are just me wasting time.
1. Entering the foods I eat and measuring.
2. Entering the exercise time and looking to see if I am meeting my goal of 1000 minutes a month.
3. The t... Read more
Another way to enter calories
I found another app, this one called My Fitness Pal. I am going to try to do both Spark and this one. It had advantages over spark, but many disadvantages. Maybe if I have to enter my calories twice, I will really get it in my head not to have... Read more
Do I really and truly want that potato chip?
I bought a bag of potato chips, because they were two for the price of one. Now, if I can be sucked into that type of trap, what about other people in the United States, who have a lot less Spark Education than I have???
Yesterday, I had a... Read more
I feel better so I finally went for a walk after a two week hiatus. I see the pattern now. I am slowly getting better, my mouth still feel burned, but only slightly, not as bad as a few days ago. My eye still feels dry, but is not hurting. A... Read more
I feel lazy for some reason, not up to par as normal. My usual activities do not interest me today. Well, now tomorrow is Friday again!!! Another week gone....scary....... Read more
Illness not a good way to lose weight.
For the last 3 days, I have had this feeling as if my mouth were burned, and my right eye really hurts on the right side of it. That feeling like when you were a kid and got a sty in your eye. But no sty. I am also so tired at night that nothi... Read more
How can this be? I was just commenting on how great it was to start over on Monday, and now I see tomorrow is another Monday????
Another "self talk" I am initiating is when I am about to reach for candy, I ask myself, "Do I really really w... Read more
