Saw my doctor today
I saw my doctor today. I was hoping for better news. I usually just put this stuff in my private journal, but I'm so frustrated. Other than my weight, nothing's changed.
Okay, tell me why do they weigh you before they take your blood pressu... Read more
How to get 4 glasses of water in at breakfast, hot, hot, hot!
My poor husband has a rotten cold (which he had better keep to himself), so I cooked breakfast this morning. He usually cooks breakfast, bless his heart. I made coffee and I decided to make two of his favorites: oatmeal and hash browns with eggs... Read more
Meal Plans with Some Recipes (low sodium)
Well, Spark Coach has asked me to record my quick and easy meal plans. Ha. Okay, I don't actually have meal plans per se. I am very consistent so I know week to week that we'll have one or two fish meals, beef for one night and perhaps one lunch... Read more
Hey, I Really Like Spark Coach!
My friend, HANAHSCLOUDY talks about Spark Coach in her latest blog. She said at first she wondered if Spark Coach would be redundant, but she's found that it helped her get her MOJO back!

It's been a good week.
I just walked 50 minutes! Yes! Happy Dancing to RESPECT, go Aretha! I know it may not be much to other people, but I've just spent two weeks slowly restarting after over training. Again. It's so hard to take it slowly!
I've had a good week.... Read more
Learning to Trust Myself
Over the years I've been on many diets. What did I learn? All the things everyone else knows about diets, too. I also learned not to trust myself. I learned to tell myself that I can't. It didn't matter what it was, my answer was always the same... Read more
Much harder to use Spark when my internet
connection keeps going down! And then a couple of hours ago I tried to open my SparkPage and was told it wasn't available, to try again later! Arrrgh! I'm hoping the cable company is updating their equipment and it's not some kind of problem on ... Read more
Have You Tried Socca--It's a crepe made with chickpea flour
I had intended to write a blog about tweaking my calories/exercise. I now know that if I eat the mid-range calorie value that SP suggests and walk 30 minutes at 3 mph with 35 minutes of ST six times a week I will gain a pound. Good to know.
Funny Thing Happened Yesterday
Well, I never saw myself as some head-turning babe but, . . .
My husband and I went out to Panera Bread for lunch yesterday. (I do get out of the house, sometimes.) As we were finishing up, the restaurant really emptied out and I was sitti... Read more
The Heat is Getting to Me
It’s Saturday morning. I've been awake since 4:25 am. Five hours of sleep last night, thus breaking my streak of eight days in a row of sleeping for at least seven hours each night. Granted, Wednesday and Thursday nights were not as restful, wha... Read more
New Recipe--Using Kale
I was making up my menu this morning and decided I was going to have kale. I love mixing kale with other veggies. I have this recipe where you take onion, chick peas, and ground cumin and sauté it until it browns. It's delicious. So I was thinki... Read more
When you think of me, how old am I?” My mother asks when she phones me one day. There’s no good way to answer this. Ever the diplomat, I say: “Gee, Mom, why do you ask?”
She goes on to explain that she’s never minded getting older. She’s ne... Read more
Desperately Seeking Balance
I’m searching for balance. Not just a balanced diet or a balanced fitness program, but a balanced routine. I see it all in my mind as a naturally flowing energy . . . oh forget that. I just want to be able to get up in the morning and exercise a... Read more
Here I am--My First Blog!
I wasn't going to have a SparkPage or a Blog. It took me a while to realize that these are great motivational tools, and that, in itself, is a gift. So here I am.
I've struggle with my weight all my life; I'm 56. Twenty-two years ago I wei... Read more
