Growth and Change, Thanks SP!
Dieting has always been a trial for me. I normally would feel tired from not eating much and also from exercising without enough calories to energize me for a work out. I not only would feel tired, but I would also feel emotional. Well, crabby i... Read more
When I was a teenager I was very insecure about my body as many of us were. But I had grown to be tallest in my class in 4th grade, and got large breasts at that time too. I stayed 5'3 for the rest of my life, so gradually I was one of the sho... Read more
Peppermint and Stromboli (Not together!)
Started out to be a great day. Got up early due to the time change, and had an extra hour before I needed to leave for work, so I took a walk. While walking I tried to listen to music, but nothing hit me right. I was impatient with the music. Ma... Read more
I don't plan on ever seeing those pounds again!
I dug up some old pictures of myself from when I was at my highest weight. Back before 2000, which is when I started finally losing weight.
The pictures are in my gallery, I didn't post them in my blog because I had a hard enough time putti... Read more
Picky eaters in the family
I know that kids learn by example. I've heard that picky eaters come from seeing parents be picky eaters. Well, I have the pickiest eater for a husband. He won't eat any vegetables. He won't eat meat unless it's a hamburger or meatloaf. Well, he... Read more
Checking out body composition and cholesterol levels
I have posted pictures on my SparkPage of me at 161 and 150, which is my current weight. Check them out. Tonight I got a body composition analysis done. The kind with the calipers. Rachel, a very energetic kinesiologist eat the Y did the measur... Read more
Heart Rate Monitoring and a goal reached
I found out through the calculator that uses resting heart rates, what my Target Heart Rate should be for cardio.
When I walk, my HR is not quite within the zone, by about 7 BPM under. This really discouraged me. I walk 3-4 times a week an... Read more
I need ideas to help reign in out of control Sparking.
I had a better day! Yay! The past few days I've felt depressed so I'm doing what I can to rescue myself before it turns into depression. I know, since I'm bipolar that I don't have a lot of control over this, but there are steps I can take to he... Read more
Change of Season Blues
I had a great time with my hubby today when he asked me to take a walk with him. He had the idea to take our walk at a park that is situated around a lake. The path goes around the lake through the woods. We still have most of the leaves on the ... Read more
Victory in spite of an "off" day.
Ending the day feeling positive is a surprise for me today.
I've done well, felt positive and energetic since I started with SP July 26th of this year. That's almost 3 months. A great start.
Then this morning I was discombobulated for... Read more
Today I had big dreams for my day off from both of my part-time jobs. I planned on taking a long walk, 5 miles, and to also do my DVD sometime today. I don't know how you other Sparkers do it. I know many people do a couple hours of aerobic exer... Read more
Need more hours in a day!
I fought with myself to get out the door to swim today. It's not that i wasn't going to do any exercise, it's just that I didn't know WHICH aerobic exercise I wanted to do. I love my new DVD, it's a great workout. I feel it does the most for me.... Read more
I can get discouraged when the scale doesn't budge. But something I am excited about right now is that my pants are literally falling off! Granted they were my fat pants, and they have a ribbed band instead of a firm waist band, not elastic eith... Read more
My Story from unhealthy to the present
Of the many times I've dieted, I've had two times that I didn't have a real "diet" mentality. Instead I've had the attitude that this is a lifestyle change. The first time was in 2000 when i got utterly disgusted with myself and weighted 210 pou... Read more
Shaking things up a bit
I'm not going to let my swimmer's ear get me down. Since I can't swim for a while, I am trying something new. My new Jillian circuit training DVD is proving to be the perfect substitution. I've done it twice and am feeling muscles I forgot I ha... Read more
