I was really doing so good on this 5% challenge, then life happened. First I went on a 10 day cruise, yea! But the food was so good. The dinners are killers. I did ok with breakfast and lunch because I went through the line, but the dining room ... Read more
Poison ivy, oak, or something
I work up with red splotches that I was scratching like crazy. I worked in the yard Saturday, and I guess this is my reward. Sadly I let it mess my whole day up. I've had it twice before and it wasn't fun. Getting hot and sweaty makes it worse, ... Read more
Making more changes
I haven't had a lot of success with weight loss so I have been trying to make some changes. I did better with my tracking, and I lowered my calories. Just when I thought it made no difference, the scale moved a little. Now I want to add some tim... Read more
It is getting to me
I have been on 2 great teams lately, plus a free coach activity going on. 5% has been going on for about 6 weeks. I have been in denial about my true feelings about my weight loss, or lack of. I am right where I started. I lost 2 and then gained... Read more
Spark coach talked about moderation today. Do I do my healthy eating in moderation? I do have somewhat of a good food/bad food idea about foods, but I don't count anything off limits. I just like to pick the food that gives me more bang for my b... Read more
Snack Girls Carrot Fries!!!
Tonight I tried Snack Girls Carrot Fries. Oh my, I loved them, and I don't even eat French fries (well maybe once or twice a year). They are so simple and fairly quick to cook. The hardest part is slicing long strips safely on a round object! I ... Read more
Still not going down on scales
I've been doing so much better with my tracking this time, and better at getting exercise, but no loss. Most of this is due to eating out on trips. I try to make good picks, but I still feel it is holding me back. I usually look for house or sid... Read more

Bonus blog to my mind!
Well, we are suppose to write a blog to our mind. I am not good with all of the telling myself good things. I've read several articles about doing it, it just hasn't become a habit yet. Since starting Spark, I've had some long streaks eating cor... Read more
Enjoyed a nice relaxing Sunday today. Went out to eat with friends after church. I had salad with chicken, managed to skip the free pie! It's continued to be a whirlwind of a summer. Just got back from AL where my nephew was in the play about Ha... Read more
Whew, hard work catching up!
Well, I had no internet most of last week, so now I've been catching up. I am on a couple of really good teams with wonderful challenges, but it all requires a lot of computer time. Naturally without internet I had not read blogs, so today I tho... Read more
What a summer. It has been fun, but not good for my healthy eating. I was just getting back on track, doing really good with both exercise and eating. I had 5 great days and one fair one. Then, instead of my daughter taking us out to eat Sunday,... Read more
