As you see, I am not a fan of blogging. I'm not good at putting things out there; that's true for writing and for real life. I've started blogs before and then changed them and then deleted them. Why? I think that I sound like "poor me". I ... Read more

Spark Activity Tracker

Friday, November 15, 2013      2 comments

I am not a regular blogger, obviously, but I do have to say... I am so loving my Spark Activity tracker. It makes it so much easier to keep track of my fitness and to feel rewarded for it. I would do the fitness and forget to track it; this ... Read more

Flexibility...not the limber kind :o(

Friday, October 11, 2013      0 comments

Last night was the first night of my new determination. I have plans to exercise as soon as I get home each weekday (can't get out of bed early) and when I get up on weekends. Well, it didn't go so well on the first day. When I got home last ... Read more

Today 10/10/13

Thursday, October 10, 2013      1 comments

Today I start fresh. I feel so much better now that I know about my thyroid and I've been taking the medication for a couple of months now. I also feel I can move on because I don't need surgery at this time. I want to get on the ball and LOS... Read more

Change of plans, but I will not give up.....EVER!!!

Monday, April 15, 2013      3 comments

I have had commitments on my time that make very little time for me. I can't seem to keep up with a team and activities (no matter how great they are for building great habits) given by a team so I am back to doing my own thing. I am sorry to ... Read more

Apologies to my Teammates

Friday, March 22, 2013      2 comments

I am so sorry for the low exercise numbers (air miles) this week. I exercise at night, but this past week I went to a mission at our church for four nights (VERY WORTH IT); that made it harder to get the exercise in. I also think I came to a r... Read more

Day #6 and #7 - Do I need advice or motivation? Anything else I want to share?

Friday, March 08, 2013      8 comments

I always can use some motivation and advice. I always listen to advice because I never know which piece is going to help me. Some I may use and some I may not, but I always appreciate those who share their wisdom with me. I tend to stay away ... Read more

Day #5 - What can I Improve on?

Wednesday, March 06, 2013      4 comments

Well...... I'm sure there are many, many things I can improve on. I definitely can continue to get better at my planning and tracking. I'm doing better, but I can always improve. I can improve on my time management which will help with my p... Read more

Day #4 - How I'm Doing Day-by-day

Tuesday, March 05, 2013      4 comments

To be honest, it's one day at a time. I can't think I'm going to do great every day because I will set myself up for a fall, but I do think that I'm going to try my best. I'm also trying very hard to plan, plan, plan. My ravenous appetite has... Read more

Day #3 - How am I keeping myself on track?

Monday, March 04, 2013      10 comments

I am exercising daily. I am working on my habit of tracking and staying in my calorie range; by planning, hopefully. I do believe you need both components to lose weight and be healthy. Exercise is good for so many reasons and can be so much ... Read more

Day #2 - My Hopes for Conquering my New Habit

Sunday, March 03, 2013      7 comments

Thank you everyone for the encouragement and suggestions! Some of my problem is being a busy and not having or giving myself the time to plan. Also, our schedule as a family puts in the bullseye of eating more calories than I should. For ... Read more

Day #1 - I Need To Stay Within My Calorie Range

Saturday, March 02, 2013      5 comments

I'm having a hard time staying in my calorie range. I do well during the day, but dinner seems to be the issue. I seem to use a lot of calories there and it's usually more than I have. I really need to get better about managing my calorie bud... Read more

2013 Winter 5% Challenge Community Team

Saturday, February 09, 2013      2 comments

Wow, do I not blog much! I tend not to be much of a "writer". There are those who have it and those who don't, I'm with the latter. Maybe you just need something to really want to write about rather than everyday life, blah, blah, blah. ... Read more

Good Form Running - 10/26/12

Friday, October 26, 2012      1 comments

I went to a Good Form Running Clinic (it's sponsored by New Balance so it's free) last night and really enjoyed it. The two instructors were very nice and gave helpful information. I'm hoping I can put it all in to practice. Here's GFR: ... Read more

10/13/12 - Yoga

Saturday, October 13, 2012      2 comments

I used to think yoga was torture, but not anymore. I did a video today that I've had for a long time, but didn't do because I didn't enjoy it. Today was a different story. It seems the more yoga I do, the more I enjoy it. The stretching feel... Read more
