I'm Back!

Wednesday, July 22, 2015      6 comments

Took some time off and then realized that the recent malware upgrade my company applied made it almost impossible to use SparkPeople. So I haven't been around all summer. During that time I DID refocus thanks to great timing by a friend wh... Read more

How SparkPeople Helps

Tuesday, May 19, 2015      4 comments

I've been here for years now. Sometimes I go away for a while but I've always come back. Lately I've been thinking I should go it alone as although I'm sometimes talking the talk I am DEFINITELY not walking the walk. To top that off, I'm havi... Read more

I overheard a vet tech tell a friend of mine that her dog "needed to lose weight". She's an older dog (Stella) and pretty inactive now with some disc problems. The Vet Tech said....."You can't imagine how much better Stella would be feeling an... Read more

Am I an Actress?

Wednesday, May 06, 2015      5 comments

I had lunch with a friend the other day, a friend who struggles with goals (don't we all at times). Her latest idea is to envision herself as the kind of woman she wants to be. For example, when it comes to exercise she'd like to be a woman wh... Read more

Excuses

Sometimes I think I must have received a degree in "excuses". I'm VERY good at them. I need to clear these out of my life so I can make progress towards my goals. Excuses....they are everywhere. Here are some I've been using - do they sound ... Read more

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

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

Mind + Body = Power

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?

That's the question I need to answer. My week was going great, then yesterday for Valentine's Day I received chocolates....CHOCOLATES....fr
