Blues and feeling lonesome.
This is mostly just a blog I'm writing to try to talk myself out of how I'm feeling.
Sure, last time I wrote I talked about the positive changes in lifestyle. Today i did something I'm not proud of. After not losing any weight this week, I ... Read more
Lifestyle Changes are something to notice. . .
I did something I've only done a few times since I started Sparking. I was having my breakfast and was only going to have a banana and chocolate greek yogurt. I wasn't really any hungrier for anything more. Plus, I was trying to have fewer calor... Read more
Back on track in more ways than one.
I am on top of the world. . .
for more than one reason...yet foremost on my mind is the way my moods settled down now that a bit of time has passed since our trip. I'm sure the emotionalism I had related a lot to how sensitive my system is... Read more
More steps last night
Last night after dinner my hubby asked if I wanted to go for a walk. I've been real lazy and not wanting to do much since we walked SO much in Hawaii. But I've been only having an average of 7000 steps this week and decided to push myself. After... Read more
Roller coaster with emotions the last few days.
Had a good workout yesterday doing a made up circuit/interval routine. Sure gets the heart rate up and is fun because I can do a different routine each time I do it....no boredom. Good aerobic workout and ST all in one. Saves time.

Settling in after my vacation.
Well, hello to reality. I finally jumped on the scale. I waited a few days, until my usual Monday weigh in day. 4.5 pounds is ok I guess. Not much I can do about it now except lose it. I did my best and had 4 days out of 7 of eating within budge... Read more
Home from Paradise
Well, back to life in Charlotte. I miss paradise already. I especially miss my son and DIL, and little Ingrid. We had such a good visit that we would probably move there if my son was planning on staying there after he gets his PhD. At any rate... Read more
Musings coming from the Inn in Honolulu.
Thank you everyone who commented on my last blog about my issue with all the focus on food while here.What you all said made sense and I shared it with my hubby, So when I need it, he reminds me of what I told him you all said. Especially that t... Read more
First full day here, all about food so far.
Hawaii is beautiful!
Our first day here involved a lot of walking. We're staying a mile from my son's and we walk there in the morning. We walked around Manoa Valley and also Waikiki today. I got in 15,700 steps, but ate 2000 calories. 300... Read more
Hawai'i, here we come!
It's almost here, my big trip!
I am not sure if I'll get to log in, but on my iPhone I can do some things on SP. I just can't spin the wheel. My husband has to be able to use his computer for being in contact with work (yeah I know that sti... Read more
second Update on Coan, fellow Sparker
I got to go see Coan today. You may remember me asking for prayers for her, for the crushed leg, having been pinned to IHOP. She is doing well. She's at her mother's house, since she can't get up and down the stairs at her own place. When she go... Read more
Hopped on a bike!
I've been eyeing up my husband's bike this week, ever since my son dropped it off at the house on Saturday. I haven't got one of my own and usually the one or two we've had at the house are up on a bike rack, not tempting at all. But these few d... Read more
An uphill climb! and a big decision made.
We went to Asheville on Saturday. I was thinking that with the 2.5 hr drive each way and the visiting, I wouldn't get my exercising in for the day. Figured it would have to be a break day. But Abi, my 7 year old granddaughter, said to me when I ... Read more
Greenways are fun!
OH Happy Day!
First thing this morning my daughter asked me to go on a walk with her on the greenway in the city. I was so excited to be able to exercise with her and get to see my grandbabies all at the same time! I had never walked on a... Read more
Trip to Hawai'i coming up soon!
Hope you are all enjoying good weather like we are here. I needed to get my swim in for the week today. I did that, but I also decided it was so beautiful out I would also walk. Plus my pedometer was screaming at me to rack up some steps. It was... Read more
