I did post this on a couple of team forums but I think I'll also include it as a blog. I consider today to be my ... Read more
Reflections
Saturday, December 31, 2016      5 comments

There are only a few hours remaining in 2016 so I thought I'd better get busy jotting down some thoughts that I've been tossing around in my head for the past while. A year ago I felt like a blimp and knew that I had to do something to get ... Read more
A little bit of this and that
Friday, November 18, 2016      6 comments

Believe me I thought I'd have this blog done much earlier today but you know, stuff happens, including having a cat between me and my computer having her "after dinner" nap earlier and getting some decluttering done. Anyway I thought I had ... Read more
What to write about?
Thursday, November 17, 2016      7 comments

It has been an usually busy day for me, so I've had no time to really even think about a blog topic (I've worn out the 5% Challenge as a topic), let alone actually begin to type something. So what to talk about - maybe just my unusually busy da... Read more

This will likely be my last blog specifically about the 5% Challenge. I'll have to try to find something else to natter on about for the last couple of days of the challenge week! If you are a 5% challenge participant then my blog title n... Read more
My 5% Challenge Team
Tuesday, November 15, 2016      6 comments

In joining the spring 5% challenge I noticed that there was a "Choose Your Team" thread so I checked out most of the teams that I thought I'd enjoy. However as a new participant to the challenge I wasn't sure where to jump in so thought I'd bes... Read more
More on my 5% Challenge Experience
Monday, November 14, 2016      4 comments

As mentioned previously, I felt a bit intimidated at first by the 5% challenge but what I found was a great support group, many new friends and a motivation to increase my daily workouts. I'd been working out 6 days a week and had also done a ... Read more
5% Challenge
Saturday, November 12, 2016      12 comments

I'm just finishing up my third 5% challenge and for the final week we've been challenged to blog. It's been a long time since I did a blog but I did a few early on this year when I was getting started on my weight loss journey. When I first sa... Read more
I Made It!! (more than once)
Tuesday, May 24, 2016      8 comments

I recently finished my first 5% Challenge as a member of the Awesome A team (and they were "awesome"!). A true 5% loss when I began would have been 10.6 pounds but liking to round things out, I set a goal of losing 11 pounds. Two days before th... Read more
Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Goodbye 20! Onderland - Here I Come!
Monday, April 18, 2016      17 comments

I've been hovering just above the weight that would give me a 20 lb loss for close to a week and a little higher than that for even longer - just waiting to see that third number on the scale change. This morning I was really happy to see a dro... Read more
Spring - Finally!!
Sunday, April 17, 2016      6 comments

April has been a very "unspringlike" month - at least up until a few days ago. While we got a little taste of more seasonable temperatures last Monday, Tuesday was again very windy and chilly before a gradual warmup resumed. By Thursday, it de... Read more
100 Days
Tuesday, April 12, 2016      6 comments

I realized last night that I would hit a 100 day streak when I signed in today. I'm not sure that I have actually made it to 100 days of straight "sparking" before. While I probably have tracked and logged in for 3 months or so in the past, I l... Read more
An Anniversary of Sorts
Monday, April 04, 2016      7 comments

As I was doing my treadmill workout this morning, it occurred to me that it was exactly 3 months ago today (January 4th) that I got myself up, drank my warm lemon water and headed off to the basement for the first time to blow the dust off of t... Read more
The Journey So Far
Sunday, March 27, 2016      5 comments

I could probably start this blog entry like I did the last one - but I won't. I have been going to do another entry for ages but somehow just never quite got to it. I should set myself a goal of one a week or every two weeks maybe, as just ov... Read more
Beginning week 4
Monday, January 25, 2016      6 comments

It seems hard to believe that I am beginning my fourth week of daily exercise and have yet to miss a day! Sundays are my least active day, as I take a break from the cardio workout on the treadmill but I do at least 10-20 minutes of strength tr... Read more
