I found a message board and team today that soothed my soul. The topic was moderation, and the concept is that we can be gentle with our changes and relaxed in our approach. People spoke of eating cookies without eating the whole package or er... Read more

I have been on Sparkpeople for several years on and off. I do really well when I track my food and exercise. But yesterday I had an experience I have never before had in all my tracking. I was in the goal range for every nutrient I track! All... Read more
Workout wear
Saturday, November 03, 2012      1 comments

Somehow I found a blog about the workout wear fads of the past. It poked a little fun at the bright colors and bold patterned leotards in the back of our workout wardrobes. I really loathe workout wear. I hesitate to work out at the Y because... Read more

Ok, so the little candy harvesters went out last night and returned with about ten pounds of candy. We have a rather unusual ritual regarding Halloween candy. We sort, count, and chart it. Of course we can't eat any until after we do that, so we... Read more

Today's spark coach visualization was clearly not intended for me. I don't do morning exercise. It leaves me cranky and tired all day. Afternoon is my favorite time because I can work out with my hubby, and evening is when the best classes a... Read more

My son started taking karate last year, and over the summer the price was right for parents to try a class. My hubby and I were hooked! For my birthday my family even got me my very own bo staff! I don't feel like I am working out, until I re... Read more
First 15 minute mile!
Monday, April 16, 2012      0 comments
