Turning plans into action.

It is nearly impossible to make a long-distance road trip without "some" planning. One has to have a route, perhaps some motel reservations, fuel stops, etc. It's much the same with our journey to "Health & Fitness". We need a plan. For... Read more
ALDI Haul - Picture
Friday, February 03, 2012      17 comments

I just got home from Aldi. If you have one near you - try it! Granted you have to put a quarter in the slot to get your cart (you get it back), the store is 95% private label (but the quality is like the name brands) , you have to bag your own... Read more

I have a friend I want you to meet. His name is "Will". Actually you have met him before but some of you have parted ways for awhile. First, who is this "Will"? says: "the faculty of conscious and especially of deliberate... Read more

I would imagine just about EVERYONE that has been on Sparkpeople for more than a week knows the smiling face of Coach Nicole. I have done so many of her workouts on youtube and the SP website that I feel as if she's an old friend that I would e... Read more

I was sitting here tonight with my puppy in my lap when I had one of those NSV moments! She got off my lap and out of habit I brushed my clothes off even though she doesn't shed like our older dog. When I did I noticed something. My stomach w... Read more

Take the average person on a weight loss diet. They make a plan for their food for the next day. Perhaps they make a trip to the market for specific produce, lean proteins, pre-portioned frozen foods. They start their day off following their ... Read more

As I said YESTERDAY. I got over that "hump". Today I was rewarded with a 1/2 pound down on the scales. Now I know there are those that think a half pound down is just a good EXHALE (HA) but for me it was the "positive sign" I needed. Th... Read more
The "hump"

If you have ever been in a long detour or pitstop you know how hard it is to get going again. Those first few days of eating in range and exercising are a challenge. If you are like me you think you are "hungry" all day, constantly look to see... Read more

I really had every reason NOT to get on the exercise bike and do my cardio today. I'm not feeling well - started with a sore throat last Sunday and somewhere along the way I THINK I have further torn my right rotator cuff (partial tear prior).... Read more

We have all heard the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel. They dropped bread crumbs to find their way home. For many of us that have taken a detour over the holidays from our path to "Health & Fitness" we are stumbling about trying to find our w... Read more
The Wish List
Wednesday, January 04, 2012      9 comments

One of my friends challenged our team to follow her lead in developing a personal wish list. After reading hers I sat down to tap mine out on the computer. The challenge: 10-15 specific activities, experiences, or goals that you've always... Read more

We moved to our current home in 1999. At the time I purchased a tiny (1 foot tall) blue spruce seedling in a gallon bucket. So it wouldn't be "run over" with the mower I dug out a round bed and circled it with pavers. We fertilized it every s... Read more
Summer is 170 days away!
Monday, January 02, 2012      13 comments

Now you may be thinking I'm nuts for posting that. I have a motive! Summer is a time of shorts, swimming suits, sundresses and active living. Don't you want to be at your best? 170 days is a LOT of time to make progress! If you lose 1.5... Read more
