Don't Like Not Having Control Over Food Choices
Saturday, May 20, 2017      10 comments

The last few days have not been good for me calorie wise. I have no support from hubby in this, and that can sometimes become quite a problem. For example, today we went to a car show in another town. He has rebuilt a l950 Ford truck and loves t... Read more
Exercise Routine
Friday, March 24, 2017      2 comments

Currently I usually do pilates every day and try to work in some strength training with dumbbells three times a week. This works for me. I am doing the Jumpstart Your Workout Challenge and that has helped me stay on track and stay accountable. I... Read more
The New Smoking?
Monday, January 30, 2017      4 comments

I just read an article from our small town newspaper that was really scary and an eye opener. The title was "Chronic Sitting May be as Deadly as Smoking". It is being called "The New Smoking" because it can cause some of the same issues as smok... Read more
Not a Good Week
Friday, January 13, 2017      2 comments

This has not been one of my better weeks where exercise is concerned. I usually have a routine of walking inside first thing every morning. For the last several days, we have had our Dobbie inside because of the weather. It is not as easy to get... Read more
Reflection on Exercise
Monday, October 24, 2016      3 comments

For some time I had been inconsistent in my exercise plan, and I wondered why I had hit a plateau! After joining the plateau busting challenge and following their plan and tracking my exercise and food, I finally saw a slight difference on the ... Read more
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
Friday, May 24, 2013      1 comments

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
