I joined the 28 day home workout challenge. Really enjoying the variation in the workout. I have read about "mixing it up", but wasn't sure what to do. I love the reminder emails that keep me motivated. What do you do to mix it up and keep y... Read more

Marching to a Different Drummer

Friday, May 08, 2015      2 comments

Tomorrow is the Rodeo Parade in our town. It's the only parade our town has every year and it's a big deal. I've always loved watching it. Back when I had to push a stroller and weighed a little less, I even enjoyed marching and representing ... Read more

5 year old Heroes

Up until now, my blogs have all been healthy habits related, especially weight loss related. I realize how odd that is. We are all more than just our healthy habits or our journey towards healthy habits. Today, for a change, I am going to wri... Read more

Well, I've kept my personal life separate from my Spark life. It's time to announce my choices to my world. I'm going to keep inviting one friend or family member a week until someone actually joins! Last week's invitee declined, so time to pick... Read more

Enough fat

Thursday, January 08, 2015      1 comments

last summer an acquaintance asked if I could be her project for one of her nutrition classes. She looked at my data and said I wasn't eating enough fat overall and specifically not enough healthy fats. LOL I've tried most of my life to avoid fat... Read more

Make it fun (or funny)!

Last night at a friends house my kids discovered a Jane Fonda video on utube. It was hysterical watching them do old style aerobics. Today they want to do it with me. We've set aside some time after chores to do it together. Not sure how much ex... Read more

food deceptions

Tuesday, April 01, 2014      1 comments

I stopped by Peet's to get some tea this morning and the pastries called to me. I bypassed the large scones - even the fat free vegan one and got one small slice of hummingbird cake. Sounds light and small, right? Soooo wrong! It's 500 calor... Read more

We've had rain the past few weeks and the air is fresh and clean. I was lucky enough to time it between showers to get out and weed. Great exercise and it feels so productive to see most of a flowerbed de-weeded. I kept thinking that some of ... Read more

Stress eating

Tuesday, March 25, 2014      0 comments

Lots of changes at work. Seems like attune weekly meeting there is always chocolate out to soften the blow. Today it was chocolate chips and gummy bears. Why did I ever eat any? I don't even like them! The more extra work they heap on, the mor... Read more

Yum - new recipe

When I am really eating as I should be, real food is so delicious. I had the time to try a new recipe for a whole chicken in a crockpot. You take a lot of different spices, paprika being one of them and rub it all over the chicken, including a... Read more

baseball field walk

Sunday, March 23, 2014      0 comments

I found a great way to use my time while my son is warming up for a baseball game. I take a walk around the edges of the field. I finish up right before the game and then get to enjoy his game after my mini workout. It's a win-win, no matter ... Read more

Grateful for the rain during a drought. Update on the blueberry muffins from the low fat cookbook I mentioned yesterday. Kids and I love them! DH hates them. I am hoping his lack of enthusiasm doesn't derail the kids from trying healthier option... Read more

same problem, different time

Friday, December 27, 2013      0 comments

Obviously I need to change more than I have. I need to look at why I repeat this cycle year after year of losing a small amount of weight and then going back to my same old thing and gaining it all back. Today the journey begins again. I need... Read more
