Planning for a Second Year with SparkPeople

Saturday, July 28, 2012      4 comments

For probably the last half of my first year with SP, I've doubted that I was getting anywhere. I felt like I was spinning my wheels. But when I wrote my last blog and saw that I have changed, and that those changes are largely permanent, I'm fee... Read more

Well! I've persevered for one year. I've known this day was coming up soon and have thought that I don't have anything profound to write about. I didn't feel like I had any major accomplishment to brag about. I've lost 16 pounds. I guess s... Read more

Just saying'...

Monday, July 23, 2012      5 comments

Wow, time has flown lately. I haven't much to blog about. I am doing well with the exercise even though I don't have my once or twice a week Y visit. I've just increased my use of my DVD, walking and biking. I haven't gained any weight. But... Read more

Too many "Shoulds"; self imposed rules.

Tuesday, July 10, 2012      4 comments

You know that thing I talked about only sitting for 3 hours a day? Well I wore myself out the next day trying to keep from sitting and threw in the towel the day after that. I decided that something another sparker said made sense; to be sure to... Read more

Feeling kinda "off" today. Have been fighting a bladder infection and a cold. The cold is getting better I think, but the bladder infection is very mild and I'm trying to not take antibiotics. Hoping that the cranberry juice can do the trick. No... Read more

Sitting vs. Moving About

Monday, July 02, 2012      6 comments

I registered for the summer 5K virtual race on SP. Should be fun. I'll see if I better my time from last time. I read about how people sit too much during the day. They suggest the best thing for us is to sit only 3 hrs a day! Anywhere more... Read more

Goals for July

Saturday, June 30, 2012      4 comments

Well, tomorrow begins a new month. I never get around to setting goals for myself for the month, but I'd like to see how I do if I have a few goals mapped out this month. Sometimes I do best with just one or two goals, but tend to get over ... Read more

Anger Resolved

Friday, June 29, 2012      8 comments

Well, First of all, thank you all for the hugs and helpful encouragement on my anger blog. I feel the love! I prayed about it and was able to see and end to the anger. I became proactive and within 18 hours I lined up a few hours of work p... Read more

I am so mad. It's a finances thing. I keep eating cookies trying to stuff my anger. So I thought I'd try writing about it. I can't go into specifics, but let's just say my hubby and I don't agree on how to spend it. (in particular where our grow... Read more

Rough Saturday, Fresh Start Sunday!

Sunday, June 24, 2012      3 comments

What a messed up day yesterday was! I gave in to carbs and sweets. I know now, looking back over the week that I held back since Tuesday, not counting calories, so I was afraid I'd go over and and am so paranoid about having any weight gain, tha... Read more

Progress on the Splenda Front...

Tuesday, June 19, 2012      6 comments

Well, cutting out the splenda isn't as hard as I thought it would be! I just dug in and changed what I was doing. I haven't reached in the cupboard for a single splenda packet in 2 days! So far today I only had a smear of sugar free jam on my to... Read more

Go Sugar Free. . .Who Me??

Sunday, June 17, 2012      4 comments

I have a serious love affair with sweetness. Not just sugar, but sugar substitutes. I was talking with my 20 year old son about it and he encouraged me to enjoy my coffee for the flavor of coffee, not for the sweetness of the sweetener I put in ... Read more

Less of the iPhone more Freggies

Friday, June 15, 2012      3 comments

I am so excited! Everything y'all said to help me yesterday really helped!Including the HUGS you sent. Partly, I helped myself by writing down my thoughts and coming to the conclusion that I was worried about what my son thought of me. But the r... Read more

An Emotional Eating Episode

Thursday, June 14, 2012      8 comments

I've been happy today. Mostly. Today is beautiful weather and I'm due to get out and walk. I need to get out of the house so I don't keep eating. My 20 year old is visiting these last couple of days and he makes me on edge, feeling like i want t... Read more

Healthy Habit vs. Addiction

Wednesday, June 13, 2012      4 comments

Well, I decided that if I balance out my day and don't sit around so much, I would feel better about spending some time every day on SP. It is such a part of my life by now, close to every day for 10 months, that I'm attached to it. I will work ... Read more
