Met a couple of fellow Sparkers for a walk today at Camel's Back Park in downtown Boise. None of us had hiked any more than up and down the first hill, so it was a new hike for all of us. Love the area and will definitely go again. Had a blas... Read more

Sunday, February 07, 2016      6 comments

I did the Spark People Super Bowl workout during the big game today. I know that I missed some of the timeouts and probably a couple of other things, but it was still a good workout! And it kept me from mindlessly stuffing food into my face wh... Read more
I didn't Blog at all in 2015?!?!?!
Saturday, January 02, 2016      9 comments

I guess I'm not a writer. That's okay...we all have our strengths. So...what encouraged me to blog now? My goals for the new year, of course! This is the easy part...deciding what to do. After I type these in, I need to set reminders t... Read more

So...I made a couple changes based on my findings on sugar. I switched to Chobani Vanilla yogurt from Dannon - saved me 3 grams of sugar per day. Meant to look at a couple of different protein/snack bars and totally spaced it!! When I get to ... Read more
WIG Update
Monday, October 13, 2014      6 comments

First, tracking sugar is a pain. Very manual. However, I did learn where I'm getting some sugar that I didn't expect. With that in mind, when I go grocery shopping this weekend, I will look for snacks with lower levels of sugar. I'm not goin... Read more
Tracking sugar
Tuesday, October 07, 2014      6 comments

It's not as easy to track sugar as I thought it would be. There is no "Sugar" box to check on the Spark People tracker. Glucose? Yes. Sucralose? Yes. Sugar, no. ... Read more

Sunday, September 28, 2014      3 comments

The main thing I need to do to meet my WIG is to stay in my calorie range every day. There are two things I'm going to do that I don't normally do to help me do that. One, I am going to practice mindful eating. I will put my fork (or spoon) d... Read more

I got my hair done today! With pictures!!
Friday, March 07, 2014      21 comments

There is a trend at my work - many ladies are chopping off all of their hair! And I mean short, above the ears short. Everyone who has done it looks very cute with their new, short hair. However, I don't think my face can support hair that s... Read more
Why?

People are odd. Okay, so that's not news for any of you. Today, the entire family went to the gym after work. That is a busy period for my gym (as I'm sure it is in most gyms) and one of the three ellipticals I like is broken. DD got o... Read more
