Measuring Goal Achievement
I do better when I have a goal to work toward. My most recent goal has been to lower my body fat percentage from 29%, the "acceptable" range, to 24%, the "fit" range. I wasn't sure that was achievable for me at age 60 after a lifetime of obesity... Read more

Teeth Whitening Update
I've used the bleach and trays four nights and I can see that my teeth are slightly whiter. I greatly reduced my coffee and tea use for two weeks, but then went back to it. My teeth are still whiter than they were before I bleached.

Glimmer of Sanity, Perhaps
Sometimes I worry that I may be obsessed - with food, with the scale, with exercise, with smaller clothes, with my waist line, with SparkPeople, etc. But I had an experience this week that made me think perhaps a glimmer of sanity on this issue ... Read more
New and Improved Streaking!
I looked at each of my streaks, eliminated several and added a couple. Overall, I've gone from 14 streaks to 9. I now track the whole FEWSS (food/fuel, exercise, water, sleep & SparkPeople) program, and focus on one of my weaknesses.

Review of Last 2 Streaks
I added 2 streaks myself, streak numbers 13 and 14. Thirteen tracked that I burned 307 calories per day, a number SparkPeople had calculated that I was suppose to burn with the exercise program I had chosen. After injury, I reduced that to 120 c... Read more
Spark Review - Streaks Nine, Ten, Eleven, and Twelve
My streak nine is to get 8 hours of sleep per night. My performance on this streak is the least impressive. My longest streak is 5 nights. However, overall I have gotten 8 or more hours of sleep 55% of the time since I started tracking this stre... Read more
Spark Review - Streak Eight
Well, even the title of this blog suggests the issue I want to address. I simply have too many streaks. I think 5 or 6 is probably enough. I want the streaks I end up with to capture the heart of my program. So that if my streaks are in good sha... Read more
Spark Review - Streak Seven
My seventh streak is currently only at 11 days, although I achieved 141 days before forgetting one day. As part of the 50+ Maintainers Team I signed on to take a multi-vitamin pill daily.

Spark Review - Streak Five
My fifth streak is "Get your dairy servings! 2 servings 1 time per day." I have 164 days starting 11/21/2009. I came to SparkPeople from Weight Watchers(WW) where I had been tracking 3 servings of dairy every day, which is required for those of... Read more
Spark Review - Streak Four
My fourth streak is 182 days of at least 5 servings fruits and vegetables per day. That streak started 11/02/2009. This streak is very significant in my overall success. Without the fruits and vegetables I would not have the satisfaction I need ... Read more

When it comes to drinking 8 glasses of water per day, my current streak is only 6 days. However, I am at 96% overall, 169 out of 176 days, since November 7, 2009. Although Weight Watchers has reduced their requirement to only 6 glasses of fluid ... Read more

I don't think it is important that I exercise that ex... Read more
