My Internal Spark

Tuesday, June 15, 2010      1 comments

I just read the blog entry "My Internal Spark." I should have been encouraged and embolden by it, but it just got me thinking. I really don't have an internal spark building a huge fire inside me. I'm not sure I even have a small spark. Yes... Read more

Motivation is something I lack. I've lost 100 pounds and my body seems to like the weight it's at. I don't! But I don't have enough motivation to lose more. The eating is not a problem, it's the exercise. I read this quote this a.m. on Spa... Read more

Breaking Another Rule

Thursday, June 10, 2010      6 comments

I keep reading that U need to concentrate on eating and put everything else aside. Sorry, can't do it. I either read a book or work on the computer while eating. If I concentrate on my food, texture and taste, etc., I'll want more and keep e... Read more

I Didn't Quit

Thursday, June 03, 2010      4 comments

I joined SP a year ago and met a lot of people. And then they started disappearing. I think weight gain might have had something to do with it. When people start eating unhealthy foods, stop exercising, and gain weight, they feel guilty. I ... Read more

What I Did Over Memorial Day

Wednesday, June 02, 2010      0 comments

We went to Shaver Lake and it was beautiful. The lake is really down right now. U can see where the high water line is. This is Tunnel Creek. That is pure melted snow com... Read more

We, on SparkPeople, are doing something great! We are breaking the cycle of bad eating habits. Whether U are young or a grandparent like me, we are changing the way those around us eat and think about food. I know, my kids and grandkids are ... Read more

Who Worry? Me?

Thursday, May 27, 2010      7 comments

I read something interesting today. A woman said, "The worst things in my life never happened!" Think about it. We worry about everything and usually nothing happens. Our worrying about tomorrow takes the happiness out of today. Another qu... Read more

Men In Black

Wednesday, May 26, 2010      4 comments

Call me weird. I don't watch much t.v. and I don't like reality t.v. However, there are several shows I like that feature men (and women) in black: The Exterminator, Dog, the Bounty hunter, and Repo. I also like Cops and I guess they're in b... Read more

Wash It First

Tuesday, May 25, 2010      1 comments

One simple rule: Wash everything first before U put it in Ur mouth. Everything! Meat, poultry, fruits, and veggies will hold up. Pies, cakes, cookies, etc. won't. Unless Ur into mushy desserts!... Read more

Dump Soup

Monday, May 24, 2010      3 comments

Tonight I made "Dump" soup. I call it that because I start with low-sodium broth, heat it up, and then dump all my leftovers in it. Each time U make it, it'll taste different. And if U watch what U cook all week, it won't be high in calories... Read more

My DH and I went to dinner tonight. I observed the couple across from us--I'm a horrible people watcher! The man was in his late 70s and the girl was in her 30s. They shared an appetizer with bread, shared a steak dinner, shared the dessert, ... Read more

Gas vrs. Service

Wednesday, May 19, 2010      7 comments

Have U ever tried to explain the difference between a gas station and service station to an under-16-year-old? My 13-year-old grandson cannot believe that we used to have service stations. I explained how we drove in, sat in the car, and wait... Read more

Yummy Gooey

Thursday, May 13, 2010      4 comments

The other day I went to the grocery store just to get an avocado. I had been thinking for some time about eating something yummy and gooey--like an eclair. This is unusual because I don't eat that kind of thing. I'm not too into desserts and ... Read more

Another Expert Debunked

Wednesday, May 12, 2010      3 comments

I recently blogged that experts don't know everthing. I saw another "study" which doesn't pan out in my family. It said that babies born to mothers who gained a lot of weight or were not breast fed would more than likely grow up to be obese c... Read more

Noise Polution

Monday, May 10, 2010      8 comments

I'm so tired of people needing noise everywhere: in the house, in the car, in stores, in malls, etc. Even if it's quiet in my car, someone will come alongside and have their "music" so loud it rocks my car. And if I were ever in a store whe... Read more
