I really need to get more sleep I don't know why I always want to stay up late. I've always been a night owl and preferred to sleep in. With a family, that's not possible. But I'm still staying up later than I should. It's ridiculous and not ... Read more
chicken pot pie
Thursday, October 16, 2014      1 comments

I made homemade chicken pot pie today... the real kind like is made in Lancaster County! Of course, it didn't turn out just like my mom's, but it wasn't bad. Homemade is healthier too since I made the broth from scratch. I controlled the salt... Read more
joint pain
Wednesday, October 15, 2014      2 comments

This joint pain is a real bother. My hands, wrists, ankles, knees hurt a lot today. My back still hurts from yesterday's drive. Not much to be done about my back I guess. Ibuprofin helps some. I'll be trying some exercises tomorrow. Hopefu... Read more
I'm back...... again
Tuesday, October 14, 2014      2 comments

I'm trying again. Last time, I let someone's comments (and lack of comments) bother me enough to say 'forget this'. So I gradually gained back what I had lost. It's time to bug him about what he needs to do with weight loss and get us both goin... Read more
Are you ready to change your lifestyle quiz
Friday, March 18, 2011      1 comments

Well, I took the quiz to see where I stand. One or two of the questions didn't have me perfectly matched with an answer. I was kind of in between answers, so I did the best I could have done. Here's the result: There are five stages of chan... Read more

I am SO hungry for chips right now!
Tuesday, October 26, 2010      1 comments

I just came home from the food store, missing my lunch. No, I didn't buy any chips. I was in the chip isle buying salsa for my husband and I didn't even look at the chips! I did go into the cookie isle even tho nothing on my list should lead ... Read more
tried pomegranate today
Wednesday, October 20, 2010      0 comments

hey... pomegranates are tasty! They are not the easiest thing to get the seeds out of. It's very tedious. The juice in the seeds is nice and sweet. The seed inside reminds me of a small grape seed. These seeds look just like corn, only red!... Read more
being sick and making good choices
Monday, October 04, 2010      2 comments

I've been sick for the past week and haven't exercised. I've been trying to watch what I'm eating though. You know the saying, "Starve a fever, feed a cold." I'm NOT going to feed my cold with a bunch of junk using the cold as the excuse! (Y... Read more
exercise with hip pain
Sunday, September 12, 2010      1 comments

My hips have been bugging me for a while now. I'm hoping that exercise and water will help with that. I push myself too far sometimes though, and then I suffer for it later. A couple of weeks ago, I hula hooped 3 days in a row, then I couldn'... Read more

So I've been reading up on this bmr since it's on one of the reports. An article said that spark has already calculated my bmr. On the report, that's the orange bar, 1836 calories. You add the green bar for exercising to the bmr. The blue do... Read more
husband finally helping me!
Sunday, September 05, 2010      4 comments

My husband has typically not been much of a support during my weight loss campaigns. This may be one of the reasons why motivation, weight loss, etc have failed. Recently though, I've noticed him helping me with my portion sizes as we plate ou... Read more
steak for dinner
Monday, August 23, 2010      1 comments

Tonight we're having my in-laws over for dinner, and we're having steaks. They're big steaks too. I've got to cut off a portion of one for my plate instead of putting a whole one on. I've eaten pretty well during the day so far, so hopefully ... Read more

I just read the daily blog about a support system. Most all the types of people they listed are all wrapped up into one person for me: my sister. She's made great progress, she checks up on me, she nags me (with my permission), and she cheers... Read more
