Happy Spring, everyone!
For some reason, this has me just about ECSTATIC this year. For me, this winter 2016-2017 just seemed to drag on and on, like there'd be no end, and WITH ALMOST NO SNOW. I love *some* snow, and SKIING. And, all this... Read more
Late April, it will be 10 years since I joined SparkPeople - "SP," for short. Sounds funny, but this major anniversary pretty much is taking me by surprise. How could it be 10 years since I first joined up and signed on? In those years, I've lea... Read more
I've never been a "sugar addict." Even so, I am a baby-boomer from the USA. Like the rest of my generation in the States, I grew up with TV and companies' TV ads, targeted to both kids and parents, for cereals, and candy, and "a prize in every b... Read more
A SLAM BALL. It's a medicine ball, but soft on the outside. Inside is a darned heavy piece of iron, or cement, or something. AND IT DOES NOT BOUNCE.
Just got my first one last week, and I'm PSYCHED. This will add more variety to my strengt... Read more
Sitting here trying to think of something I'd like to write to publish here on the blog. Sometimes you just come up with a big, ol' blank!
I know I need to get going with my last bit of exercise - movement- for today. That's one main thing... Read more
The past two months I've been applying the slow-carb nutrition method. This is described and prescribed by Tim Ferriss in his book, "The 4-Hour Body."
I can totally relate to what Ferriss has learned, and what he shares, about cutting back... Read more
The sugar industry bribed health researchers to play down the dangers of sugar, and to focus the blame on fat. Have any of us not been influenced or affected by all the "low-fat" health advice and food/ dietary products of the past 20-30 years? ... Read more
I've signed up for a (voluntary, nobody forced me) complimentary pass to a gym not too far from home.
Has anyone else also noticed these days when you do sign-ups like this, not just for the gym, very often, someone CALLS YOU BACK almost b... Read more
Just call them the "challenges" of an active lifestyle! Feeling much better than I thought I would after overdoing it - just a bit - yesterday. Daughter spared me the hike a mile or so back home, and after dark. Outside, things also were icing u... Read more
Greetings, everyone!! Haven't updated in months and months. Now it's January. We finally had a great snowfall on the U.S. East Coast, including Washington. Finally got to use my snowshoes I got in March, 2015, but they arrived a week too late to... Read more
After getting a replacement Fitbit, the 'old' one finally turned up. Why does it work like that? LOL. Then, I noticed SparkPeople would not connect to the 'new' Fitbit. And if I did connect it, I would lose all my earlier data. Frustrating. So, ... Read more

In case anyone thinks I don't know what season it is, just a note to say I have tried updating my Sparkblog all summer, and now into fall 2014. I have reported the problem to SparkPeople, but so far, no one seems too motivated to assist! This ha... Read more
Considering that we subscribers pay for this service, the biggest thing that Spark Coach could do is simply provide users with the previous day's challenge! I NEVER remember, and it's too complicated to try to look it up. The challenges are not ... Read more
