Yesterday went well for me for both exercise and my food intake. I was a bit high on my sodium intake, but I know now what I need to do to adjust that. I walked for over and hour and a half, shoveled snow and rode my bike for 25 minutes. ... Read more

I am so proud of myself. I have managed to eat all of my food at the table for three days now. That is a big thing for me! It is just so easy to put food in my mouth while I stand and cook. Yesterday I even baked some blueberry muffins and made ... Read more

Ok, sorry sparkpeople, but this is just bugging me! How can someone track 840 minutes on the first day of February??? I thought we could only track 120 a day. Also, how does one track over 3840 fitness minutes in the month of January when you co... Read more
