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

Raisins in My Oatmeal

Wednesday, June 02, 2010      15 comments

I am celebrating a big accomplishment! A streak of one day may not be particularly impressive to most people, but I think this one may be significant. I did something yesterday that I haven't done for at least 35 years. I went the entire day wi... Read more

Don't Burn the Beans

Monday, May 31, 2010      8 comments

The good news is I got 9 hours of sleep, awaking without an alarm, feeling very energetic. The bad news is that I forgot about my beans cooking in the crockpot - no salt added pintos. Instead of cooking 6 hours, they were on high for 15 hours. Y... Read more

Hungry Week

Sunday, May 30, 2010      7 comments

All last week I was hungry -- extra hungry. I actually went over my calorie range 4 times -- 3 times just a little and I balanced it with extra activity; one day I overate at least 400 calories. Yesterday, though, the extra hunger wasn't there. ... Read more

5K Commitment -- All Wet

Saturday, May 29, 2010      7 comments

Today my WW meeting was all about exercise and activity. I found myself re-energized and motivated to take it up a notch. I went to the Y from WW and did my hour long Zumba class, my strength training machines, and then another 25 mintues on the... Read more

Amazing "Sweet" Vegetables

Thursday, May 27, 2010      11 comments

It was an amazing revelation. As I enjoyed a fresh ear at supper last eve, for the first time I understood why they call corn "sweet corn." As I've cut back my sugar and sweetener I can begin to taste the sweet in corn, peas, and carrots. Someti... Read more

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
