SHARING MY FEARS

Monday, January 05, 2015      4 comments

OK, I know I said "no resolutions" in my last blog, but I would like to make this one. For 2015, instead of letting my mind marinate in thoughts of anxiety, guilt, frustration or fear - I'm going to share. For too long I've attempted to figure... Read more

New Year Revolution - not Resolution.

Monday, December 22, 2014      5 comments

SHORT AND SWEET

Monday, December 15, 2014      3 comments

Six Year Sparkversary

Thursday, August 21, 2014      1 comments

I joined Spark People in 2008 and -SURPRISE- I'm still here! The surprise is for myself. I am not noted for longevity on any site. Usually after 2-3 years interest wanes and I move on; so there must be something really special about SP. ... Read more

Not a Good Time For A New Challenge.

Wednesday, July 23, 2014      2 comments

I started round 2 of the "Tame Your Sweet tooth Challenge" about 2 weeks ago but my life has gotten so hectic of late that I haven't been able to give it much attention. So I've decided to defer it to a later date when I can concentrate and foc... Read more

Fudge, anyone?

Monday, July 14, 2014      2 comments

I am 5 days into round 2 of my "Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge" (I took this challenge about 1 year ago with pretty good success). At home I did not have any problem staying away from sweets. Away from home it was a different story. Meals i... Read more

TAMING MY SWEET TOOTH, ROUND 2

Wednesday, July 09, 2014      4 comments

It has been a rather disappointing year. I had hoped to be at my goal weight by now. I've been a member of SP for almost 6 years but my weight continues to fluctuate as does my motivation. One big problem has always been my consumption of swe... Read more

CAN SERIOUS EXERCISE ALSO BE FUN?

Monday, April 28, 2014      4 comments

I came across an interesting thread today. Someone wanted to know if "serious" exercise could also be "fun". It started me thinking about my own views and attitudes about exercise. It has undergone quite an evolution since I joined Spark Peopl... Read more

Saturday, January 04, 2014      2 comments

Goodbye 2013. I hope I shall remember the lessons I learned from you and take them into the New Year. One big lesson I learned is that I need the support and accountability of my friends to help me reach my goals. It has been too easy to let ... Read more

Four Year Sparkversary

Saturday, August 18, 2012      4 comments

Wow! This is a tremendous milestone for me. I have never been a person known for "stick-to-it-tive-ness" so being an active member of Sparkpeople for 4 years is a real accomplishment. When I started out I was "kicking it at 56", now I am still... Read more

Tuesday, May 29, 2012      1 comments

This is day 21 of the "Sweet Tooth Challenge". It's really getting tough now. The old "tapes" are starting to kick in and it is becoming harder and harder to drown them out. Usually when I reach a certain point where I've made significant pro... Read more
