Counting Backwards, Day 10 - New Team!
:-) I joined the new SparkCoach team and will give it a 2 wk trial to see how I do with it. It was fun coming up with over 650 points today!
For exercise, I put together a collection of short stretching videos while giving some sore muscl... Read more
Counting backwards, Day 11!
TIRED. Ended up with 1402 cal total in spite of making waffles and fried apples for breakfast, turkey casserole for dinner, and WeightWatchers spice cake for husband who didn't get enough when I made it for company last weekend.
I did a lo... Read more
Counting backwards, Days 13 & 12! Where'd they go?
I just realized I didn't do a blog yesterday. It was unexpectely busy, so much so that "lunch" at 2 PM was a cup of coffee and a cookie at the bank. I'd eaten a light breakfast, actually forgot to eat everything on my menu, so you can imagine ... Read more
Counting Backwards, Two Weeks to Go!
First of all, confession time. Aside from the daily stretching I do in bed, I didn't exercise today. I got caught up in a book, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. What a hoot! It won't hurt me to take a day off once in awhile... Read more
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 20
Good exercise today. I made a workout out of putting laundry away while marching in place and putting items away one at a time. Did a SP video, stretching, walk.

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 27!
Thanks be, no rain! I started this retreat day with a 15 min resistance band workout, followed by a 35 min ... 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
