I've been busy all day and am just getting back to the spark. Biking and walking done along with some heavy duty house cleaning. The breeze is coming in the windows and everything smells so wonderful!... Read more

Really brisk walk this morning - was surprised to see it so chilly again but I am not complaining. I had lunch with some old friends and enjoyed a salad. RB is finishing off the renovations in the office and all the windows are open. Who coul... Read more

Rainy day

We woke to rain this morning and are grateful as the Florida landscape has been parched dry for some time. I've finished 40 minutes on the stationary bike and dusted off the step exerciser. I don't know it's actual name but I bought it a thrif... Read more

I almost forgot to blog today. I was just finishing up reading my spark articles for the day and ran down the list on spark points to see if I missed anything and found my reminder to post a blog today. I am in the process of dismantling ... Read more

Last week part of our winter challenge was to blog daily and I enjoyed doing it. We had specific topics to blog about so it was easy. Now here I am today wondering what to blog about! We dragged ourselves out of bed this morning after cha... Read more

Yesterday the grand came over to stay during dinner while her mom teaches a class at the local community college. I had prepared whole wheat pasta with homemade sauce and a big salad. She had a hankering for McDonalds and we caved! I had a fi... Read more

I'm doing well on the measuring and weighing. Yesterday I got hungry in the afternoon and went to the pantry. After plundering in there and not finding what I wanted (good thing because I wanted potato chips!), I made myself a cup of herbal t... Read more

It's not as hard as I thought when everything is right in front of me. My estimations had gotten way out of proportion! emoticonRead more

New habit

Sunday, March 03, 2013      9 comments

In order to be successful at losing weight consistently I really NEED to track my food and in order to do this correctly I really, really NEED to measure accurately. Although this is not a new habit it is one I do need to work on. As of this a... Read more

Moving the Nutcrackers

Friday, December 07, 2012      11 comments

I have a collection of Christmas nutcrackers (not the real ones!) that are not some of my favorite decorations but my family has given them to me over the years. It has sort of become the family joke for someone to buy another one. I haven't p... Read more

Christmas Spirit

OK, I'm trying to get in the mood. We're in Advent so why don't I feel like it should be time for all the shopping and decorating, etc. I put up a few decorations and they look like clutter rather than Christmas. I don't know where that came... Read more
