This weeks treat

If I track all my food and have the spare calories and carbs I am allowing myself one Pirouline chocolate lined rolled wafer each Friday. It is 30 calories and well worth every one of them.... Read more

Sunday Spark Stuff

Sunday, May 19, 2013      4 comments

I do a fair amount of my food tracking on Sunday afternoons. After I plug in my groupings for the day I use the copy feature on the tracking page. My snack includes 8 oz of milk. I drink at least that amount everyday so once I put that in on... Read more

One of the tools I use regularly is Spark's food groupings. I have made a group for my favorite salads, sandwiches, soups, fruits, etc. For example I have a group called fruit that contains: 1/2 of a large banana, a clementine and 1/4 cup drie... Read more

After my walk this morning I went out and did a little gardening. In Florida it is sort of a year round job. So I pulled weeds, straightened some edging, trimmed some shrubs and admired the front yard which we have done a lot of work on. I i... Read more

Sunny days

Thursday, May 16, 2013      7 comments

This morning was a beautiful (although not breezy) day as I took my morning walk. I much prefer a little breeze to keep me from getting too hot. I've goofed off and had my coffee and now I am heading out to the patio to do a bike ride.... Read more

All about me

Today was a me day. I went out after lunch and had a pedicure, manicure and got a haircut. How's that for rewarding yourself??????????... Read more

Not sure how that happened...........

Today is our daughter's birthday and she is 45! So in five years I will have a 50 year old daughter - surely that can't be right. My head tells me I am still "young" despite being on Medicare. Age has never bothered me as I can still do prett... Read more

A "Grand" shopping trip...

Friday, May 10, 2013      6 comments

The grand spent the night last night and is still snoozing. We have a shopping trip planned for today. She wants something for her mom for Mother's Day and her mom's birthday is this week, also. Being 14 she will want to spend a significant a... Read more

Enjoying the day....

This week central Florida has had a reprieve from our usual hot and humid weather and I am wishing it would just keep going on and on. We are usually at the cabin in the mountains by now and enjoying cool mountain breezes. We've had some famil... Read more

Learning to walk....

Tuesday, May 07, 2013      12 comments

I've been a walker for many years and I go into withdrawal if I have to skip more than a day or two. Imagine my surprise to learn that I don't know how to walk. I came across a Spark article on fitness walking and today I made a real effort to... Read more

Making progress

Monday, May 06, 2013      4 comments

I got an hour's walk in this a.m. - beautiful day to be doing that. I've finished 30 minutes on the bike and a trip to Publix. Next up is cleaning the patio furniture. We've had lots of rain lately and even though it is in a covered area it s... Read more

Trying to feel better...

Thursday, May 02, 2013      8 comments

I think I am on the mend. Still coughing and sniffling but not quite so bad. I did 30 minutes on the stationary bike and was not exhausted but I still won't push it for today.... Read more

Feeling the guilt...

Wednesday, May 01, 2013      8 comments

I know in my head it is stupid but why do I feel guilty anyway???? I have not been able to do my usual exercise (thankful I am between challenges) due to a cold/bronchial thing and I feel like I should be able to push myself to do it anyway. I... Read more

I can't remember since....

Monday, April 29, 2013      6 comments

The last time I had a cold was so long ago I cannot remember when it was. Our son came by last week and he was miserable (being a teacher he gets more exposure) with a chest cold. Yesterday I began to feel it developing in my chest and last ni... Read more

No great plans for this weekend. RB is rebuilding the retaining wall out back. I'm going out next to help him clean up the debris from tearing down the old wall. I think putting up the new one will be easier. New plantings will go in after t... Read more
