I get so discouraged when I read about those amazing Sparks losing lots of weight in some pretty amazingly 'speedy' ways. My own progress has been really slow. However, when I look back I see there has actually been progress. I can exercise l... Read more

It was too hot to exercise outdoors yesterday so I hit the gym, did some weights and finally succeeded in going an hour on the elliptical. Now, I hope to replicate that often and set it for a more challenging setting. We'll see how it goes ove... Read more

Dr. Fuhrman helped me budge a little from a long standing plateau. But, then I've been stuck again since I quit that little challenge. In three weeks our son's family will be with us and we will do a road trip as a part of their visit. While ... Read more

Sunday, June 10, 2012      2 comments

So, for 4 days I've now been following (pretty well) the 90/10% "crash" diet recently featured on Dr. Oz show. To eat only about 150 calories of fats, meats and dairy, plus no sugar is a definite challenge. However, focussing on fruits, veggi... Read more

I've managed t keep up pretty well on my walking and other exercise lately. Yesterday I worked on hula hoop for awhile and did a bunch of squats while watching a health program. Then I walked out the door to handle some errands in the area. I... Read more

Yesterday, I logged nearly 15,000 steps at our air show. I was pleasantly surprised I could do that since I had walked quite a bit the day before, too. So, I was even more gratified when I walked with my dh today. I never walk so many days in... Read more

Monday, May 21, 2012      2 comments

Ouch! For years I've complained about weight struggles. I've yoyo dieted most of my life. Today, I lamented once again that I need someone to hold me accountable as I do a lousy job of it on my own or in print. My doctor is no help. He need... Read more

After reading a health article in SP about 10 reasons why we overeat, I thought of one not specifically mentioned - habit. I started eating an after school snack as a young child. Whether it was when I got home or on those days I stopped at th... Read more

Thursday, April 12, 2012      3 comments

After hearing that paper filters filter out two compounds from coffee that can increase cholesterol, I researched further and found that tidbit to be true. So, I'm going to cut out the Starbuck's lattes for awhile and use paper filters in my po... Read more

For a long time I'd heard that paper filters were not a good choice because of environmental concerns as well as not so great for our bodies. Now, I heard via Dr. Oz that paper filters are good as they filter out some things that cause high cho... Read more
