Habits. I keep uncovering them.
Friday, April 25, 2014      2 comments

During the past month I was increasingly lethargic - you know, beyond tired. Seemed strange. Then I realized that I was fighting it. And going about it all wrong! Last week I went to bed at 7:30pm one night. Got up at 2am for an hour, w... Read more
Must somehow push past ! my limits.

Invisible disabilities are frustrating, y'know. I have three of them. The pain issue is what I can hide, what even a few of my docs don't really understand. One of these, unfortunately, is my very nice General Practice doctor; I started see... Read more

Friday, April 04, 2014      8 comments

To stay on top of specific tracking and planning, we have several tools. The planner will send us email reminders if we want reminders of appointments or perhaps challenge reminders; the nutrition and fitness trackers help us look at exactly ... Read more

I've been on SP actively since joining seven years ago... today. Never a 'pointaholic', my SparkPoints don't reflect all I do here. I do only those things that help me and don't always bother getting points. Yet those points add up even when ... Read more
My Goal Board Check-In Items
Sunday, March 23, 2014      6 comments

The relatively new feature on our Spark Pages - the Goal Board Check-In - seemed rather trite to me at first. Couldn't see collecting 'points' that had no meaning. (I'm truly not a pointaholic; use that button for points just as a checkmark t... Read more
Water Exercise - worth considering for everyone!
Tuesday, March 11, 2014      8 comments

Many people will say, "oh I can't exercise" or "well, I walk a little bit but can't do much more" and they truly do have physical limitations. Limitations are not roadblocks; we almost always can find detours when it comes to exercise as well a... Read more
Positive and peppy tune
Monday, March 10, 2014      4 comments

I love music. Some people use prerecorded exercise music when exercising, but I would rather pick and choose my own tunes. Am always open to new ideas for anything from slow and relaxing to tempest tempo. ... Read more
Using my down-time
Saturday, March 08, 2014      3 comments

I'm in Day Two of one miserable cold. When I have to relax for health reasons or when in flare I call it 'down time'. That doesn't mean I feel 'down'. It means that I'm not up and active, just taking it easy so that I will be myself aga... Read more
Think Outside the Box for Solutions!
Wednesday, February 26, 2014      7 comments

Sometimes we slip or what we plan is hard because we just do not ENJOY what we plan to do to meet our goals. When staying on track gets hard, it's time to think outside the box. I constantly revitalize this long journey of mine. Otherwis... Read more
Going for my own kind of gold medal
Sunday, February 23, 2014      5 comments

Today I didn't really want to do my usual exercises, but turned on the radio station and got going. Sundays are loaded with lots of peppy oldies and little dialog, so my attitude changed and I loved just plain moving my parts. Then, I to... Read more
Back in Phys Therapy and Pool
Friday, February 21, 2014      3 comments

Went to the Physical Therapy pool yesterday afternoon.... Before going into the pool for the 3x week pool use via a sort of medical exercise-membership (money-saving for people with chronic issues), there was the usual p.t. intake session. So m... Read more
Being 'cableless' has evolved into an exercise routine!
Monday, February 17, 2014      4 comments

Ditching the cable tv has freed my time! Maybe I'll want it back someday, but for now? Nope! I've been LIVING more! And an unexpected bi-product of the switch to whatever comes to me over the airwaves is that using the indoor antenna h... Read more
Pyramid for Success: a SP system resource. Have you seen it?
Saturday, February 15, 2014      4 comments

I often refer to the SP site as a maze... and rightly so: it's huge! Dig into this site through searches on various words and terms, especially using the word 'article' after the word/s searched. You will find things you had not seen before! ... Read more
All movement is exercise
Tuesday, February 11, 2014      6 comments

Refering to 'activity' or 'movement' instead of using the work 'exercise' emphazes that all movement IS exercise. We don't have to plan it, don't have to buy anything to move. And moving our parts is important for health. Never hesitate t... Read more
