Will Work For Stars
Wednesday, June 23, 2010      12 comments

As an admitted reward junkie, I am excited because I just found one more place where SparkPeople gives recognition. And it is extra exciting because it is for just about the most important thing that can be measured on SparkPeople. It's not a tr... Read more
Retail Therapy
Tuesday, June 22, 2010      11 comments

Today I went shopping. Instead of going to my favorite store where I frequent the 70% off and final sale rack, I went to an upscale shopping area. I thoroughly enjoyed trying on expensive things in little sizes. It really is the first time I've ... Read more
You've Got to Read this DailySpark if You are Anything Like Me!!
Monday, June 21, 2010      12 comments

I read the Daily Spark, "Conquering Eating and Other Impulses the Easy Way", a couple days ago. I read a lot of Spark articles, sometimes because I'm just racking up SparkPoints and sometimes to kill time so I'm not eating and sometimes because ... Read more
Past the Blahs
Sunday, June 20, 2010      11 comments

Yesterday I was feeling too blah to blog. But I'm back on it today. The scale is up, but only .8 pounds. I'll live. I'll even stay a healthy weight. And I'm trying to give up the "yelling" at myself when I slip. I wish I could be perfect. I... Read more
Minor Obstacle
Wednesday, June 16, 2010      10 comments

Last eve after pilates, my concern was confirmed. The callous on my left foot, running about 2.5 inches from my second toe toward my heel, produced a few drops of blood from a crack about 1/4 inch long. It had been sore for a couple days. The ca... Read more
May Be a Challenging Day
Monday, June 14, 2010      12 comments

I couldn't sleep last eve. Maybe got three hours. Gave up about 3:30am and got up. I walked for an hour, maybe 3 mph, slower than I usually walk. Thought I might as well put what energy I had to good use. Then did some laundry and house cleaning... Read more
Great Ride!
Sunday, June 13, 2010      9 comments

I rode with PINKSAINT 14.2 miles according to the SparkPeople fitness tracker mapping tool. It was definitely much more fun with a friend. The time went so fast --- almost 100 minutes gone in no time. Although the day will be hot, and this morni... Read more
Happy Trails to Me! Happy Trails to Us!
Saturday, June 12, 2010      9 comments

Tomorrow morning I have planned a long bike ride on a local trail with a SparkFriend! Should be lots of fun. I've been riding by myself and wishing for a partner, so this is just what I've wanted. She is much younger than I, so I hope, I hope, I... Read more

Wow! Today I have received 9 goodies and 58 comments on my SparkPage! I usually try to respond to each person, but don't think I'll get it done today. Hope everyone understands. It definitely has been a pick-me-up to be motivator of the day. Hon... Read more
Man, the Sweat!
Thursday, June 10, 2010      13 comments

I'm just about to take my third shower of the day. I did a treadmill workout this morning, burning 200 calories. I was dripping sweat. I showered and then Natalie came. Natalie and I danced to the Princess and the Frog CD. It was not an aer... Read more
Comfort of the Elusive Third Kind
Tuesday, June 08, 2010      8 comments

I wrote earlier about physical comforts of goal weight -- sitting and breathing more comfortably -- and emotional comfort -- just feeling more comfortable "in my skin." But there is one more kind of comfort I'm looking for. This one I've yet to ... Read more
Comfort of a Second Kind
Sunday, June 06, 2010      8 comments

I wrote yesterday that goal weight makes it more comfortable to sit, confident that I will have enough space, and keeps me more comfortable, sweating less and breathing easier, in the heat. There is another kind of comfort that I find at goal we... Read more
The Comfort of Goal
Saturday, June 05, 2010      7 comments

I wanted to lose weight to be healthier and to look better. I never really thought about comfort as a reason to lose weight and get fit, but it is definitely a reason I want to maintain my weight loss and my fitness gains. Seats are so much... Read more
Talk About Mindless Eating
Friday, June 04, 2010      8 comments

I made it three whole days with absolutely no artificial sweetener. (I have been a Splenda-Equal-SweetnLow-saccha
rine "addict" for more than 35 years.) Today my hubby did the grocery shopping as usual. He came home with sugar free choc... Read more
Read the Label
Thursday, June 03, 2010      6 comments

I know you should read labels and I thought I did. But on two occasions recently I found surprises, not of the good kind. Pillsbury Grands Fat Reduced Whole Wheat biscuits that come in a refrigerated can are what I tried to get my husband t... Read more
