It Wasn't a SparkBreak, But....

Wednesday, May 08, 2013      7 comments

No, I didn't seem to be MIA. I still accrued lots of SparkPoints and Fitness Minutes. I tracked, and I did all the passive stuff like articles, videos, and that brief interaction called huddling. And I've always been one to take long walks when ... Read more

Calories, Fats, Carbohydrates - Oh, My!

Tuesday, April 02, 2013      5 comments

Yesterday was not anything to be proud of, so I'm glad I already decided to be in this for the long haul. I didn't exactly binge, but I sure ate more than looked good on the tracker. I wasn't hungry after lunch, but I felt like eating. So ... Read more

Abraham Left Mount Moriah

Saturday, March 23, 2013      4 comments

Paul and I use Through Faith Alone, a collection of devotional s by Martin Luther. Yesterday's has caused me to do a lot of pondering. It's based on Genesis 22:19: "Then Abraham returned to his servants, and together they left for Beersheba. Abr... Read more

Team Challenge 1 Day #7

Sunday, March 17, 2013      3 comments

St. Patrick's Day - when Christians commemorate the man who used the shamrock (clover) to teach about the triune God. So today, I prepared the same menu that I always do for March 17. Oh, I know. I hear the nutrition purists among you cluc... Read more

Team Challenge - Day#6

Saturday, March 16, 2013      4 comments

Time for a breakfast post. One of my favorite breakfasts is lots of veggies, held together with scrambled eggs and topped with cheese. To call it a veggie omelette just wouldn't do justice! It's a whole cup of fresh spinach, 1 Tbsp scallion... Read more

Team Challenge - Day #5

Friday, March 15, 2013      3 comments

Time for a lunch post! This one was not an unmitigated success, but it worked! I'd had a fairly high carb breakfast and was also planning supper to be higher than average, so I knew I needed to limit lunch to mostly protein and fat. Fortunate... Read more

Team Challenge - Day 4

Friday, March 15, 2013      5 comments

Just so no one gets confused, Day #3 was done as a thread on the Mid-Mo team page. Just a simple snack: one individually wrapped square of Ghiardhelli chocolate. So today will be a dinner meal. I roasted a whole organic chicken, along with... Read more

Team Challenge - Day #2

Tuesday, March 12, 2013      8 comments

Today I'll share one of my favorite lunches, which could work equally well for breakfast. It's quick and easy to fix, and almost no clean-up. Just a cereal bowl, measuring cup , a fork, and a spoon! I mash a small banana in the bowl, using ... Read more

Team Challenge

Monday, March 11, 2013      4 comments

One of the things our Mid-Mo Let's Go! Team has started is some challenges. Our first one was a virtual walk of the Katy Trail, and our goal was to complete it during January. Well, it took longer than that, so we ended up with five Monday-to-Su... Read more

How Many Is Too Many? And What To Do?

Sunday, March 03, 2013      8 comments

I'm talking about SparkTeams and SparkFriends here, not potato chips - so it really is something I could use a few extra brain cells to help with. I know that your first thought is that this a decision that only I can make; and, of course, that ... Read more

He wanted WHAT for breakfast?

Wednesday, February 27, 2013      7 comments

More of last night's "stewp"! Really? So let's start at the beginning. I've always thought it was Mom who coined the word "stewp"; at least I've never heard it outside of our family. She made the yummiest stuff on that back burner. Only no... Read more

Mini goal met - now what?

Saturday, February 23, 2013      8 comments

Today I got to 150 pounds, just 10 pounds away from what I chose as a tentative goal some 15 months ago. It's exciting, of course, but I find I'm also more than a little bit unsettled. Too many times, I've lost a significant amount of weight; b... Read more

The Longest Walk Since WHEN?????

Sunday, February 17, 2013      6 comments

It was just so sunny, 50* today in mid-Missouri, that I couldn't spend the afternoon inside. So I hit the Stinson Creek Trail to try out the playlist I've put together. I didn't come home for a little over 2 hours. The breeze made it a pe... Read more

Adjusting to Life Without the Patriarch

Saturday, January 19, 2013      7 comments

First off, it's not going to be easy. My Dad and I locked horns regularly, but he was the one family member who has always been there for me. Of course, it was usually in those little everyday ways. The biggest one, though, will always be a part... Read more

Celebration of Life

Died died yesterday afternoon, just a couple of hours after I posted yesterday. He simply stopped breathing while our son Tobias stood by the bed, stroking his Camper's head. Not two hours before, he had still clearly recognizes his spec... Read more
