From zero fitness minutes per week to 120 minutes this week. I am really feeling like I have accomplished something. The first that I have ever stuck with it for this long. Always before this it would be for a couple of days , then I'd start mis... Read more
A New Approach
Tuesday, January 21, 2014      2 comments

Another try with a different approach. This is something I have never been successful at before. I committed to having a trainer come to my house once every two weeks to guide me through a workout program that is designed especially for my need... Read more

My daughter and I spent last Saturday doing some big batch cooking. What a great time we had speculating on how the various dishes would taste. We tried some new recipes and some that we had done before and really liked. I have enough frozen din... Read more

One small step to becoming an active member of Spark People is to visit the page every day. All I have been doing for quite a long time is getting my log in points and reading the e- mails. Today, I decided to once again take part in more things... Read more
A Good Start
Saturday, November 17, 2012      4 comments

Yesterday was a good day and I went to bed feeling like I had been successful for the day. One day at a time and sometimes one minute at a time. I had one of those "one minute at a time" times late yesterday afternoon but I made it through. Wh... Read more
Back Again

After a long time away from SP, I have decided to give it another try. I was so disgusted after all my efforts seemed to not work for me that I sort of threw up my hands and said enough. Needless to say, all that it accomplished was weight gain.... Read more

I'm not sure if I should even write a blog today. I was so discouraged with my last weigh in that I have really spent a lot of time wondering where I should go from here. I have gained and lost the same 10 lbs for two years and just when I think... Read more
The Scale Was UGLY
Wednesday, May 30, 2012      3 comments

Totally disappointed tonight. The scale absolutely hated me and registered a 3.6 lb gain. I have worked really hard to stay within my plan but for some reason it didn't work out. Just have to try harder next week. I have already started planni... Read more
Meeting Goals
Monday, May 28, 2012      2 comments

The goals are beginning to work and it seems like I have finally got them worded so that they are measurable. As well, I have them broken down into smaller parts that are much more manageable. Small steps! So I would say that for this week I hav... Read more
Hateful Brownies

Still working on the goals today. I have decided that I should write my daily goals each day so that will become a daily chore. I plan to write them the evening before. I think I have weekly goals sorted from the daily goals. I am now working... Read more

It's May 25 and we woke up to snow this morning--- huge flakes of snow. It didn't last long and melted as fast as it came down. Thank goodness for that. I tried a new recipe last night and it was delicious. It was on the back of a seasoning pa... Read more
Weekly Planning Day

Chef Meg's Three Cheese Macaroni was so good. Maybe not as cheesy as I usually make but still tasty. I really enjoyed having it for dinner last night. The only complaint I have is that it had a bit too much cayenne pepper but that was my fault a... Read more
Accomplishing Goals
Tuesday, May 22, 2012      3 comments

The treadmill welcomed me back today. I find that I need to do that early in the day or else I keep putting it off and that sometimes results in me missing it altogether. I need to set up a CD player as I have a bunch of books on CDs that I coul... Read more
Birthday Dinner
Sunday, May 20, 2012      1 comments

Over the big birthday. My granddaughter and her boyfriend made a barbecue dinner for me last night. Lots of healthy food with perhaps a bit too much butter on some of the veggies. It was a very tasty dinner and I really appreciated having dinner... Read more
