Formal Wear on Cruise
Sunday, January 17, 2010      6 comments

I've blogged before about going on a cruise in mid Feb. Now my DH and I are debating formal wear. We are not formal people. I don't own a dress! Haven't in 30 years. What to do? I absolutely refuse to buy something for 1 or 2 days out of m... Read more
Restaurant Calorie Counts
Saturday, January 16, 2010      5 comments

Thank heavens for restaurant calorie counts. We went to dinner last night and I wasn't very hungry. We were at Black Angus so I decided on a "simple" sandwich. I was going to have a chicken, avocado, bacon sandwich w/o the bacon. While my DH... Read more

I've blogged before that I love cooking. I like being creative and being in the kitchen frees my mind from other things. I read a lot of cooking magazine and Spark People recipes. I have complete files on clipped recipes from the healthy to t... Read more
No Diet for Hubby
Thursday, January 14, 2010      4 comments

My husband refuses to diet. Yes, he's overweight--a lot--but his blood pressure ad cholesterol are great. Unfair, huh? Anyway, he says he'd rather die than spend the rest of his life eating low fat this and low sugar that. He LOVES the At... Read more
Sit too Much
Wednesday, January 13, 2010      6 comments

I think I sit to much--sit to hold grandbabies, sit to read, sit to babysit, sit to work on the computer, sit to read everything in SPeople. What to do? One thing I could change is to sit on the stability ball. I know that it's suppose to hel... Read more

I Did Something New
Monday, January 11, 2010      10 comments

About every 6 weeks we go to the coast, especially in the winter's fog so we can see the sun. When we go to Carmel, I have a set thing I do. We go to the beach and the beach is down a sand dune from the parking lot. I usually stay on top of ... Read more
Where to Put the Blame
Friday, January 08, 2010      5 comments

For years I wondered why mom didn't do more to keep my weight in check. I wasn't a fat child but I continued putting on weight through the years. I couldn't figure out why she didn't try harder to tell me about good foods to eat and the power ... Read more

Fitter than Ever
Thursday, January 07, 2010      7 comments

I've discussed it before, but I'm going on a cruise in Feb. I started SP last May and thought I'd lose a lot more weight than I have. I've lost 19 pounds. While that's wonderful, it's not what I had hoped for. It's definitely not bathing-sui... Read more

I did 30 min. on the treadmill doing interval training. My fastest interval has been 3.5 mph but today I upped it to 3.7. Whew! I accomplished something new. I also did 10 min on the "hills" setting. I got up to 2 mph doing the hills. So, ... Read more
I Got Too Comfortable
Monday, January 04, 2010      3 comments

I got too comfortable doing the strength exercises that came with the SProgram. I could whip them out in no time. I DID increase my weight froms 1 pound to 3 pounds (wow!) but I haven't felt a burn. Did I really want to make this harder for m... Read more

The New Year is always a new beginning. We can make goals and either keep them or forget about them. I think the easiet thing to do is just continue on with Spark People and keep our goals there. If we follow the plan, everything should come ... Read more
Treadmill
Tuesday, December 29, 2009      4 comments

I asked for and got a new treadmill for Christmas. I really like it. Last night I tried interval walking which is 1 1/2 min. of slower (but not really slow) walking and then 30 sec. of fast walking. They wanted me to walk 4 MPH but I'm not re... Read more
