Monday Check In

Monday, April 20, 2015      3 comments

I'm halfway back to my starting point. This experience is frustrating, no doubt about it. I wish that I wouldn't allow myself these sidetracks that pull the rug out from under the progress I make. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, I gained 6... Read more

I've Seen this Detour Before

Monday, April 06, 2015      3 comments

I did weigh in this AM. Since I came to the island (6.5 weeks ago), I’ve gained 6 pounds. We’re heading home Thursday so my goal this week is to keep walking and just try to keep my food in the ballpark. Once home I will get serious. Bec... Read more

Sunny Monday

Monday, March 23, 2015      3 comments

Great day today but my energy is LOW! Not sure why. I felt like I slept pretty soundly but maybe I tossed and turned more than I know. Then I've had to deal with "computer issues" and that always is frustrating. I need to shake it off and en... Read more

Where's Karen?

Thursday, February 26, 2015      3 comments

I'm on an island! Yes, the tiny sandbar island at the very tip of Texas, South Padre. Years ago over margaritas and crazy from the sun and surf, my DH and I decided to buy a little condo here. "We can rent it when we aren't here," we said. "... Read more

Mind + Body = Power

Tuesday, February 24, 2015      5 comments

Time Magazine recently focused on Frontiers of Longevity. I finally started reading it and some of the information shared really rang true. I'm a little more "seasoned" than some of my SP friends. I'm in the decade (OK, my 60's) where I'm not... Read more

Was It Worth It?

Sunday, February 15, 2015      7 comments

That's the question I need to answer. My week was going great, then yesterday for Valentine's Day I received
om my guy (well, we were splitting the box). I love chocolate covered nuts and must admit that I had... Read more

Nugget of Info that FLOORED me!

Thursday, February 12, 2015      6 comments

I have been a practicing "calories in, calories out" kind of Spark Person. In my head I was thinking that this basic formula was all I needed to follow to lose weight. Read more

* Have successfully tracked 4 out of the last 4 days * Have been eating mindfully - thinking nutrition rather than just calories * Have been averaging 650 more calories burned than consumed daily for those 4 days * Have done ... Read more

The Battle Within

Wow! Monday was a battle day for me. If you are like me, you have those days too. Where it seems like you have so many opportunities to go wrong and you REALLY have to fight your Read more

Small meals daily?

Sunday, February 08, 2015      5 comments

I know that small meals every couple of hours works great for some people. But I've tried it and it's not for me. I'm guessing there are kindred souls out there who find that several small meals a day end up being a caloric disaster. Wh... Read more

Wednesday Thoughts

Wednesday, February 04, 2015      6 comments

Walking is a great 'brain trip'. At least for me. You can hone in on something that's bothering you, or analyze a problem, or you can focus on the world around you. We spend so much of our time indoors during the winter, getting outside where... Read more

Just the facts, Ma'am...the facts

Tuesday, February 03, 2015      3 comments

OK, here they are: My Health-O-Meter readings (and yes, I made this up) 1. Supplements? I've always had mixed feelings about supplements but am taking a multi-vitamin, glucosamine, calcium every day. On track with that for past 2 weeks ... Read more

As my eyes opened I scooted through and around pillows and a dog to look out the window. Yes! No snow, at least not yet. If we got going on our morning walk right away maybe we wouldnt be dealing with snow! That wasnt to be. By the... Read more

Building on the

Wednesday, January 28, 2015      6 comments

I'm still pretty pumped up about my 'ah hah' moment. If you read my last blog, where I figured out that all the sweet and/or salty snacks I was eating were keeping me (or at least contributing mightily) from moving forward towards my weight los... Read more

OK, I'm trying not to snack because the reason I snack has nothing to do with hunger. emoticon It's normally becau... Read more
