Fresh Fruit Plate
Tuesday, May 25, 2010      5 comments

Today for lunch Natalie and I each had a fresh fruit plate. We enjoyed low fat cottage cheese with blueberries, strawberries, cantaloupe, and grapes. It was truly delicious and enjoyed by both of us. Somehow it seemed very special today. I ... Read more
Food Tracking for Maintenance
Saturday, May 22, 2010      9 comments

I have tracked my food all but maybe 10 days since December 1, 2008. I used to track with Weight Watcher paper journals. Now usually I track online @ SparkPeople. For a while I did both. When I go visit my mom in S Dakota (her summer home) in Ju... Read more
I Prefer to Eat More
Thursday, May 20, 2010      9 comments

I had a minor injury and had to cut back my exercise to allow my hip to heal. So I had to cut back my calorie range target in order to maintain my weight. My hip is now healed and I have added the calories back in. I know without I doubt t... Read more
Buffet Success
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      13 comments

I attended a buffet today. Several people commented that it was a difficult place to eat wisely. Not for me. I passed up the plain white dinner rolls. As far as I'm concerned they are nothing special. And then I didn't need the butter. So t... Read more
Learning from Our SparkFriends
Tuesday, May 18, 2010      10 comments

The new Secrets to Success section of SparkPeople has become a real favorite of mine. I love reading what other people have found helpful. One thing I didn't figure out until today, though, is how to find the Secrets to Success that a specific S... Read more
Community Team
Monday, May 17, 2010      9 comments

This week I joined the SparkPeople Community Team, which I think is a sign that I am entering a new phase. (I'm convinced there are phases of maintenance, but I've yet to identify them in predictable order. See previous blogs if curious.) I am f... Read more
Phases of Maintenance
Sunday, May 16, 2010      9 comments

A couple days ago WalkingAnnie postulated that perhaps maintenance has predictable phases kind of like group development (forming-storming-norming-perf
orming). I've been thinking about that statement quite a bit. I think she's probably corre... Read more
Measuring Goal Achievement
Saturday, May 15, 2010      9 comments

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
Declaration of Health
Wednesday, May 12, 2010      12 comments

I declare my hip officially healed! It did great for a whole hour of Zumba this eve. I planned to take it slow, but it was too motivating. I couldn't help it. I just got into it!! -Marsha... Read more
Teeth Whitening Update
Tuesday, May 11, 2010      4 comments

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. I have ... Read more
Glimmer of Sanity, Perhaps
Monday, May 10, 2010      10 comments

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!
Sunday, May 09, 2010      9 comments

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. Here... Read more
Review of Last 2 Streaks
Saturday, May 08, 2010      2 comments

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
Friday, May 07, 2010      5 comments

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
Thursday, May 06, 2010      5 comments

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
