Counting backwards, Day 15 - Getting there!
It's nearly my one year Sparkversary! Whatever I have & haven't done, I'm 30 lbs lighter, my closet is emptier because of all the too-big clothes I've gotten rid of, I've developed a workout habit, and I've hung in there whether I've been doing... Read more
Counting Backwards, Days 18, 17, 16 - went missing!
Arghh! Where have the last couple of days gone? I've had a potluck, a brunch, an unexpected lunch out, and high tea. Needless to say, calorie tracking was problematic, and I'm certain I was over on Sat, Sun, and Mon. It actually feels very g... Read more
Counting backwards, Day 19!
and from there, don't know. I hosted potluck and singalong fellowship gathering this evening. I ate moderately and enjoyed some of everything, including dessert. My curried turkey salad was a hit,... Read more

Counting backwards, Day 21 - Attacked by Cashews!
OK, today was going really well until...the cashews I bought for a recipe jumped out of the grocery bag, attacked me, and stuffed themselves down my throat. No? All right, I admit they got the better of me, but I chose to open them and eat the... Read more
Counting Backwards, Days 24, 23, 22!
WHERE'D THEY GO? I DID DO A BLOG YESTERDAY FOR DAYS 24 & 23. Oh well, they weren't great food days anyway.
Today - doing well. Did a video, worked hard on the house so that when my pest control person arrived, he could spray in closets a... Read more
Counting Backwards, Day 26
Great start this morning! Did stretching and cardio in my room, then walked all the way to other bridge for a good brisk 45 min. I'm glad I've been able to do it early in the morning. Right now it's pouring rain in Tampa.
Food - I'm abou... Read more

Counting Backwards, Day 28!
Hurrying around getting things done before going out of town for weekend women's retreat, returning Monday afternoon. The Franciscan Center of Tampa Bay has great food and lots of it. It's always a challenge not to overindulge. I'm bringing s... Read more
Counting Backwards, Day 29
Whew! In spite of last night's insomnia, I got a lot done today and plenty of exercise. Big accomplishment: I got all the way through a pilates video and didn't have to substitute anything. Granted, I took the easier options when there were ... Read more
"I decided to take an aerobics class..." LOL
I don't remember where I found this, but I thought it was a hoot!
"I decided to take an aerobics class. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotard on, the class was over."... Read more
Counting Backwards, Days 31 and 30
Day 31 was very busy, but productive. I had business to do with my mother-in-law's estate, and things are looking good about the sale of her house. But it meant more eating on the run at odd times and not keeping track very well. I was gratef... Read more
Counting backwards, Day 32--BAD, but good
and downhill from there. BAD food day. However, I am not feeling bad about it, not feeling guilty, not mentally beating up on myself because I learned something useful. I wasn't craving sweets; I wanted FATS. I... Read more
Counting backwards, Day 33
OK, I did it, on the high end of my range, but I did it. Exercise: SP video, stretches, and several major cleaning projects.

Counting Backwards, Day 34
Ugh! I am dead-tired. But my daughter and her things are all moved into her new home. I worked hard cleaning, washing, unpacking, searching, and assembling a complex set of shelving that weighed a ton. No idea how many calories I burned toda... Read more
