Ahhh! Sweet Day of Rest!
Even though some info encourages exercising every day, I try to follow the SP article that suggested a day of rest once a week. And Sunday is it! Hooray!!
True, I took a quick walk around the block this morning while it was still cool to st... Read more
Upset But Rode It Out
I was drafted by a friend to help serve food at a party for a friend of a friend. I just wanted to help my friend out. I really try to stay out of the kitchen, because the less time I spend there, the better my fitness is.
So the tech-guy c... Read more
I Didn't Want to Do It
I was out late [for me] last night and I really didn't want to get up this morning. Nothing special I had to do, but it is so hot that if I don't get my cardio in early, I'm likely to let it slide. So I got up anyway, arguing with myself all the... Read more
Back in the Saddle Again!
No, not a horse saddle. Just back on my bike. I felt kind of blah Monday-Wednesday this week, grumpy and down, and I finally realized that I had a stomach bug. So I decided to take it easy yesterday--a second rest day this week.
So, this m... Read more
The Real Tomato Thing
You SP whippersnappers need to get in touch with more old people. Or watch more vintage TV shows. Some time ago I sent some friends a tomato. I'm still getting questions. Don't you guys know how to google? ... Read more
Insulted by My Desk Chair
Okay, maybe I have needed a bit of motivation lately. Yesterday my hydraulic desk chair started to sink on me. This chair has an easy-to-adjust lever under the seat to raise or lower the seat to the right level quickly. It does this by letting i... Read more
No More Boring Parties!!
I was invited to a bi-annual barbecue yesterday, held by a good friend. I love my friend, but I hate her parties [I hate most parties]. We go back as far as junior high school, so we have known each other for a long time. But she has many intere... Read more
I Am More Than My Weight Loss
Last week a friend noticed my weight loss and I was happy, She was one of the first few who mentioned it. That was nice. Even nicer was all the nice things my Spark friends have written--THANKS!
I saw this friend again yesterday and all she... Read more
Finally--A Scale Victory!!
The past 3-4 weeks have been a real trial for me. I only weigh once a week, as suggested, but it was discouraging when I knew I was following the calorie/protein/carb/fat eating plan, not cheating and still not losing weight. In fact, one week I... Read more
Got my bike ride in and went to the laundromat early, before it got too hot and crowded. It was even pleasantly cool sitting outside in the shade. Glad to have that done!
Found one more pair of slacks that are too big. That's good news beca... Read more
To the Dump, to the Dump, to the Dump, Dump, Dump!
The title is the answer to the old riddle: Where do the Lone Ranger and Tonto take their garbage?
Well, that's were I'm sending some of my fat clothes--the ones that are really too ragged, too stretched out, too ugly even for a poor person ... Read more
I'm a Heavy Drinker
But I'm losing weight! Drinking water is a major part of SP and I didn't drink enough of it before I joined. When I joined SP in June I had 3 large plastic glasses [like everyone has for picnic or just every day]. I would fill up all 3 and line ... Read more
Routine Is the Key to My Success
After a very stressful last week, this week promises to be better. Lots of distractions, travel and other oddities made it easy to get off my journey from fatness to fitness last week. But I'm back in my little routine and this week I'll try to ... Read more
They Finally Noticed My Weight Loss!!
Yesterday a friend asked me if I had been losing weight. I was wearing a glittery top and a new lacy jacket with black slacks [which are too big] and I did look kind of hot. I admitted that I had lost weight. The large fellow asked how much and ... Read more
Binge Eating in a Healthy Kitchen
I was so exhausted yesterday after 2 nights of restless sleep before travel days and getting up at 4:00 AM to catch early flights. When I got home at 10:00 AM I put on my nighty because I planned to nap and rest all day--no energy to do anything... Read more
