No brain storm

Monday, September 28, 2009      1 comments

I have no big brain storm idea for today's blog so I'll write about the weather. It's craaaaazy! My DH was in Lake Tahoe this weekend and he said the weather was gorgeous. However, forecasters said it would snow on Wed. Fall? Our weather in... Read more

Am I cheating? I haven't said anything but I've had a gastric bypass. It was quite a long time ago. But I've seen people on SP using Weight Watchers, Pritikin, South Beach, so I guess we all can have our own things. The doctor told me the by... Read more

Nordic Walking Sticks

Saturday, September 26, 2009      4 comments

Has anybody every used or know of anyone who uses Nordic Walking Sticks? I've been looking into buying some. The info said they help use the upper body as well as the lower body. Is this true? I'm not a fast walker yet because of sore knees ... Read more

The Spark

Friday, September 25, 2009      3 comments

I preordered The Spark, the book that is coming out in Jan. Why? Probably to help spread the Spark and to make it a top seller so we can get on Oprah and other talk shows. But the real reason? Prizes, gift certificate, gifts? Nope! They of... Read more

Flu Shot

Thursday, September 24, 2009      6 comments

I got my flu shot today. $24.99 at Walgreens. No wait. They want the elderly (who me?) to get their shots. For the swine flu shots, we're at the bottom of the lis. That's okay with me. I guess they figure maybe we're somewhat immune or the... Read more

Spark Points and Goodies

Wednesday, September 23, 2009      6 comments

Have you every tried explaining SP and SG to other people. I always get a look like, WHATEVER! I tell people that I work hard to get my SP and they ask why, what can you do with the points? I try to explain how you get a trophy of some sort ... Read more

Sometimes when I start walking I feel really upbeat and ready to conquer 2 or 3 miles. Other days, like today, I can barely eke out 30 min. I push myself because if I wait until later in the day, it'll be too hot to walk. Yes, we still have h... Read more

Half the carbs!

Monday, September 21, 2009      2 comments

SP said to take no more than half your calories from carbs. I can't seem to get there. I keep going over. I'm doing fine with fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, etc. but not the carbs. I usually have something carbo for breakfast--cereal or... Read more

Now what?

Sunday, September 20, 2009      5 comments

Now what do I do? Hmmmmm. I just made 10,000 Spark Minutes. I reached for a goal and achieved it. To continue on I have to make a new goal. Yes, 15,000 SM sounds good but I need something else. Maybe more fitness minutes? That would be go... Read more

30 measley points

Saturday, September 19, 2009      7 comments

I just need 30 points to make 10,000 Spark Points. I have worked so hard for there and even if I exercised all day, I couldn't possible reach 30. I don't think, anyway. What I'm planning on doing is going online at 9 p.m. and start working on... Read more

MP3 Player revisited

Friday, September 18, 2009      1 comments

I was upset earlier this month when my DH got me an MP3 player. It was something I firmly told him I didn't want. Well, I've changed my mind. So many people wrote me and said I'd change my mind once I used it. I wanted the player for books, ... Read more

Nothin' much

Thursday, September 17, 2009      1 comments

Nothing much going on today. I don't have babies to babysit so I've been running errands and cleaning house. Got some aerobic point for mopping the floors. Got lots of health food at the store to make dinner for the next week. Will walk late... Read more

I thought of the game show Password a few weeks ago. The purpose was to try to find the very best word to make your partner guess a secret word. My DH and I were traveling and we were in a huge grove of trees. We don't know one tree from anot... Read more

Party tonight

Tuesday, September 15, 2009      2 comments

My DH and I rarely, if ever, go out socially. But tonight we've been invited to a birthday party and dinner. I'm not worried. I have plenty of points left and I need at least 3 more servings of fruit and veggies, so I can load my plate with ... Read more

My Spark People point addiction is coming to fruition. By this weekend, I'll have 10,000 Spark Points! Woohoo! Some days I have a few short of 100 points and some days I go over a little. I DO try for 100 points per day. It keeps me busy! ... Read more
