New Challenge
Friday, June 10, 2016      6 comments

Today I am starting a new SP challenge. I love the challenges here because they help me to become more accountable, and I can also get support that I cannot get here at home. Every time I tell my DH about a plan for healthier eating or exercisin... Read more
New Exercise Plans
Friday, July 31, 2015      2 comments

Today has not been a good day for eating or exercise. I had an eye appointment early this morning and did not have time for a good breakfast before leaving home. I was gone most of the day and did not get in my regular exercise. I did, however... Read more
Goodbye January
Sunday, February 08, 2015      1 comments

I know we are now down into February, but I have had to be off SP for awhile. My precious mother was in the hospital part of January and went home to be with the Lord on the 18th. I spent this time staying at the hospital with her, and had spe... Read more
WOW! I'm Eating That Much???
Sunday, August 10, 2014      5 comments

I had stopped tracking my food for awhile. BIG MISTAKE! I had started gaining weight and was blaming it on my hypothyroidism. This morning, I tracked my breakfast and got quite a surprise. I prepared a smoothie like I do so many times (but not... Read more
WHY!!!!!!
Tuesday, March 04, 2014      6 comments

Why do I keep doing the things I know I shouldn't be doing and not doing what I know I should. I know what I should and shouldn't be eating, but do I always follow my own rules or SP's? NO! But I am not giving up. Just as I get started back, my... Read more
Back and Determined
Sunday, March 02, 2014      2 comments

I am back again and this time armed with lessons learned by not tracking more often. First of all I learned how important it is to log my food each day. If I don't, I tend to get more and more careless about what I eat. This time if I eat it, ... Read more
Moved and back online
Saturday, October 26, 2013      3 comments

I am finally moved into the new house and back online. Working at the house (Yes, I helped in some of the construction.), We ate a lot of snacks, and a lot of these were junk. As a result, I have regained most of what I had lost. It's time to r... Read more
Moving Break

Hi Spark friends. I haven't been able to spark much for some time, and now I may be completely shut down for awhile. We are in the midst of building a new home and have already sold our present home. Since we have to be out before the new house ... Read more
My First 5K
Wednesday, June 26, 2013      0 comments

I finally did it! I participated in a benefit 5k on Saturday. It was a beautiful, cool morning, perfect for running. Before joining Spark People, I had not run in years, and would never have thought that I would be running in an actual race. A ... Read more
Enjoying the Sunshine

Finally, the weather is beautiful and sunshiny so that I can spend more time outside. I have been out today working in my new flower garden. We are getting ready to build a new house, so I have been moving some of my perennials from the old hous... Read more
Timed Housework
Wednesday, April 03, 2013      6 comments

My Spark challenge today was to make a list of household chores, set the clock for 15 minutes and see how much I could accomplish in the time limit. This was actually fun. I had never moved so fast or run so much in doing housework. I was also s... Read more
Doing What I Know to Do
Wednesday, March 27, 2013      2 comments

I know what I need to do, so what is the problem? I have learned a lot since joining SP about eating healthy, exercising, encouragement from others, tracking every bite and all exercise. I have learned a lot by reading fellow sparkers' blogs an... Read more
Breaking a plateau
Tuesday, February 26, 2013      4 comments

I have just finished the Spark Coach plateau-breaking program. I had begun to think that I had reached a weight as low as I could go. After finishing the program, I have finally broken through and started losing again. One lesson I have learned ... Read more
Weight loss is an adventure
Tuesday, December 18, 2012      3 comments

Life itself can be as adventurous or as boring as you let it be. So can Spark People. Sometimes the weight loss and healthy eating lifestyle can be quite an adventure, especially when trying new recipes, or pushing yourself to do a little bit m... Read more
