Really enjoyed the Polk County SparkTeam pot luck dinner last evening. It was wonderful to meet AMANDJCD and get to see FLUTTERBUGCE, EILEENV3, and ASMITH (hope I have that screen name right) again. TBRANCH has such a lovely home. She and her hu... Read more

Today it came! The FedEx man left me a little white package. Natalie was here and we opened it together. I now have a bright red (size small) SparkPeople shirt. Natalie was very impressed. You may remember I won $10 credit on the wheel the ... Read more

I just finished all the laundry, getting every single piece -- even the ironing and hand washing -- finished and put away. As I was reorganizing my closet and throwing out my last clothes that are too big, I realized something: I have enough clo... Read more
My Kind of Triathlon
Saturday, July 31, 2010      9 comments

Today I worked out at my gym. It was 98 degrees outside, so I appreciated the air conditioning. Nonetheless I was totally sweated through way before my 120 minute session was complete. I'm trying to change my thinking from sweating being bad to ... Read more

The other day I couldn't get to the gym. It was my strength training day and I was scheduled to burn 307 calories. I decided to try some SparkPeople videos. First I did three of the cardio videos -- Jump Start, Bootcamp, and Kickboxing. I... Read more
Good Check Up Today

The SparkPeople-inspired lifestyle pays off again! Good annual check up today. Blood pressure: 112/70. The nurse said that I must have very good genes. But I don't think that's it. My mom and sister are both on meds for high blood pressure and m... Read more

Day before yesterday I wrote about what I am doing right now, standing up to blog and otherwise participate in SparkPeople. Some SparkFriends wondered what motivated me to do that. Well, I had just read the, "The Longer You Sit, the Shorte... Read more

I really had a great workout today at the YMCA. I started with elliptical and I tried the interval selection for the first time. (Usually I do the manual, cardio, or weight loss program selection.) The interval program varies from resistance of ... Read more
A Different Perspective
Friday, July 23, 2010      13 comments

I doubt you can tell, but there is something different about this blog than any other I've ever written. I am putting into practice something I've read about and makes sense to me. Perhaps you have been reading, too, about desks now available th... Read more

I was considering resetting the SparkPeople articles because I was having trouble finding articles I hadn't read. But, I knew I had not read them all and I wanted to find the ones I hadn't read. Today I found out how. Go to the Healthy Lif... Read more
An Older Woman's Wonders
Tuesday, July 20, 2010      8 comments

It has crossed my mind a time or two, so maybe I'll just put it out here and see what my SparkFriends have to say. It seems to me that my body is responding to my attempts to build muscle far better than at any time in the past. Do you think thi... Read more
Blowing My Own Horn

I just found a new award on my SparkPage. Celebrate! Celebrate! No modesty here, I'm going to blow my own horn -- just strut and crow -- border on being obnoxious. For the first time, I received a Trivia Leader award for June 2010. I just love a... Read more

On my recent vacation a relative with a history of yoyo dieting similar to mine (until I met SparkPeople) asked me, "How long are you going to do this?" She was talking about what she perceived as my diet. I assured her my new lifestyle is forev... Read more
