I was just reading an SP board about "how did you finally get it". Does anyone really ever "get it"? There is no secret pill, secret spell, or secret exercise...there are no secrets to living a healthy, full life. After reading what other peo... Read more
OK...half the year is gone, I have just returned from a well-deserved, much appreciated 2 week break from work, and I realize just how lazy I have been since January. Why? If I have to be truthful I think I got lazy because SP was WORKING for ... Read more
2013 HERE I COME!
The holidays are always fun. I especially just like getting together with family and friends. Some of these people I haven't seen in a while so it is so nice to visit and catch up with what is going on in their lives. Overall, I did pretty da... Read more
One Holiday down...2 to go!
Enjoyed a SUPER Thanksgiving holiday with my family. Our Thanksgiving Day menu was soooo good...and actually different for us. We splurged on a boneless Heavenly Ham (they are not called "heavenly" for nothing!). I made scalloped potatoes in ... Read more
Upcoming L-O-N-G weekend!
I missed my entry in the beginning of the week so I will do so now. I feel my progress is going great! Honestly, I KNOW I could do better. However, I want this to be a 'forever' life change and not a limited diet phase. I am saying this beca... Read more
I LOVE SP People!
Soul baring time...I was NEVER one to tell anyone that I was trying to lose weight. I know why...because I would be embarrassed if I failed. So I always kept it to myself which for me, did not leave me "accountable" so of course I failed!

The Structure of my Week
Boy, although I work a flex schedule of 4, 10-hr days thus allowing a 3-day weekend, those 3 days fly by as fast as a 2 day weekend! We shared the weekend with our grandchildren which is just awesome. But something really stood out for me this... Read more
Biketoberfest & SP
Alright, back to the 9 to 5 grind; leave the biker chick til next bike fest (March 2013!) I didn't do TOO bad with diet/exercise; could have been a LOT worse. I did a lot of walking for exercise but was hoping to do more. I did not wear my kn... Read more
The Realities of Life
Another challenging weekend. That is where I find the unstructured three days (I work 4/10hr days) to be my greatest challenge. During the week I do absolutely great with my tracking and exercise, as well as checking into SP. The weekend....h... Read more
The Queso did it...I swear!
So busy yesterday that I missed an entry.
Okay, I will 'fess up...had somewhat short of a cup of Moe's ... Read more
Stepped on the scale!
Well, I have been AVOIDING scales for a while now. Hopped on the one at home last night. Not that it is "perfectly" accurate; however, it did show a loss!! This weekend I plan to do a serious weigh in and take notes for my SP page! Although ... Read more
A New Week Begins
Had an AWESOME weekend! Weather was great and took the motorcycles out for a quick over night to the beach. Must admit, without the structure of my weekdays that my eating was a little all over the place. I will say after documenting everythi... Read more
So far so good...I must really be determined to do this as I have not felt "deprived" or hungry or anxious. I actually feel pretty damn good. I bought new shoes and although I don't think they had anything to do with it, I have done something ... Read more
Didn't do too bad yesterday overall. LOVE the review you get at the end of the day. Although I had planned a dinner in the afternoon, I ended up changing it at the last minute, but still stayed within my ranges for calories, etc. Was not anti... Read more
Here it is, Monday morning, and a beautiful morning in FL it is! Fall weather greeted me on my way to work. I am all prepared to begin this journey of living healthy. I started off my day with the Sun Salute before I got dressed. What a grea... Read more
