Looking for 2 good teams
Wednesday, October 26, 2016      2 comments

I just dropped 2 local teams that at one time were near and dear to my heart. I was even team leader of one of them for a time. However they have been inactive for months so I've let them go. I'm not active in my sports-themed teams but I'm keep... Read more
Whose numbers are right? Sparkpeople or Fitbit?
Thursday, July 14, 2016      5 comments

Yesterday I went Kayaking. On the FitBit app it says that 90 minutes of kayaking is worth about 300 calories or so. On Sparkpeople it lists it at 1500 calories. This is a HUGE difference. Why? Who do I believe??... Read more
Thinking of upgrading my FitBit- give me your advice!
Tuesday, May 10, 2016      12 comments

I have the Fitbit Zip. I'm thinking of upgrading the the Fitbit Alta or the Fitbit Charge HR. Keep in mind I don't have a Smartphone and I don't text. I don't have cell service at my house. I'm not the most active person in the world either. Mos... Read more
Just have to let it go I guess- Spark Streaks
Wednesday, October 14, 2015      8 comments

Well Spark is congratulating me on 30 days for this, and 60 days for that.... whatever. I've been on this thing for what...? 5 years now. I guess I missed a day for this and a day for that even though I was on the site on those days. Just have t... Read more
Well that sucks...

After logging in every day for almost 1000 days I broke my log in streak. I was busy during the day yesterday and when I came home our internet was out. It's satellite based and when it rains it cuts out. To be fair it was on sporatically but I ... Read more
Proud of myself today

My third grader and I are sharing a cold. I've had a bad week with being too busy and feeling sick. However a few weeks ago she had asked us to sign up for snowshoeing. Our local library was sponsoring an event with a local adventure camp so it ... Read more
Connecting FitBit with Calories?
Wednesday, December 31, 2014      4 comments

One of the things I like about Fitbit is that it synchs with Sparkpeople. However I am not sure if the numbers always work. I do see that FitBit's numbers are different than Spark's numbers. I accept that. However as the scales are not goin... Read more
Stepping back
Friday, October 03, 2014      1 comments

I stepped down from my team leadership role a few days ago. I knew I wasn't an effective leader and I wanted to give others the chance to make something happen. I know that local groups don't always flourish, but I also knew I wasn't giving it m... Read more
I did it! Well sort of...

I made it to Level 20! Yeah.... funny though, I haven't made my weight loss goal yet. These Spark points are nice, and they help me focus but I am not done. At one point I was down 30 pounds. Then I gained a bit back. I have a lot of work to do... Read more
Good numbers, let's hope we get some more!

I don't want to jinx anything for tomorrow, but I'm not sure I believe in that stuff anyway. As I posted the other day I've been trying to stay on track. I am trying to take care of myself even when I feel like I am falling apart. This... Read more
Going to quickly pat myself on the back here
Tuesday, June 17, 2014      6 comments

I am going to quickly pat myself on the back here. Even though June has been crazy, and the past few days have been even crazier than I expected I have mostly stayed in my calorie range. If I have been too busy to track then I made notes of what... Read more
It's my birthday
Tuesday, March 11, 2014      6 comments

It's my birthday, and once again I have not made my weight loss goal. When I joined Spark, over 3 years ago I was trying to get down to 180 pounds. I keep resetting, and resetting, but I haven't made it there yet. So not really celebrating,... Read more
Rough month
Friday, January 31, 2014      6 comments

January is always the hardest month for me. It is just so cold that I can barely get outside except for essentials. It also gets dark early still too. I know I COULD have done my exercising INDOORS. It's my own fault. I'm not hitting my fitness ... Read more
Talk to me about your Fitbit Zip
Tuesday, January 07, 2014      5 comments

Talk to me about your Fitbit Zip. I do not have a smart phone. I use Spark with a computer. I have been waiting for the little $59.95 gizmo to go on sale after I saw Spark plugging it a few months ago. Right now Target is offering it at the regu... Read more
Wrapping up 2013, worst year ever on SparkPeople for me
Friday, December 27, 2013      4 comments

Well this has been a rough year. I could list the excuses but it doesn't matter. I gained weight this year and it wasn't just a pound. It was a lot of pounds. I don't have the final number for the year but it's about 15 pounds that I have gained... Read more
