No Greater Joy
Saturday, September 11, 2010      11 comments

DGD2 (Dear Granddaughter #2) is scheduled to be born on Thursday, Sept 16th. DGD1 will be at my house at 7:50am that morning. All this is contingent on my DD not going into labor before then. However, I really hope she does. Life does not have t... Read more
No More Flopping!
Friday, September 10, 2010      10 comments

When I was a teen I remember my mom repeatedly scolding me about flopping myself down on the couch or in a chair. I had an "aha! moment" recently when I realized that I still sometimes flop a little. I also realize that it takes core strength to... Read more
Made My Day
Thursday, September 09, 2010      11 comments

I was feeling kind of discouraged because I woke up in the middle of the night after getting to sleep on time. I reset my alarm clock from 6:30am to 7:30, so I got 7 hours sleep. I didn't get my morning workout done as I had planned. I enjoyed t... Read more
Secrets Found
Wednesday, September 08, 2010      16 comments

I just found an easier way to see my SparkFriends' Secrets of Success. Near the top of each SparkPage there is a "Explore My SparkPage" bar. The last option is "More." Under that option are 4 choices and the bottom one is "Secrets of Success." C... Read more

The Ugly: I only got 5.5 hours sleep last night. Went to bed at 10pm, but gave up and got up at 12:30. The Bad: I ate 607 calories at 2am. four servings of fruit: cantaloupe, banana, peach, applesauce; 2.5 servings healthy grains: 100 calor... Read more
Stronger Than......

There is an open bag of Baby Ruth miniatures sitting on my kitchen counter. There is a bag of Butterfinger miniatures and I'm not sure if they are open or not. There is about 1/3 of an apple pie sitting in a clear-covered pie pan on my counter. ... Read more
No SparkVersary Yet, but Celebrating a Great Bike Ride!
Sunday, September 05, 2010      10 comments

If you read on my SparkPage, it says I first came to SparkPeople on Sept 2, 2009. While that is technically true, when I first got here I was overwhelmed. I came back several times and poked around. Then one Saturday in October, I spent four hou... Read more
Lifestyle I Can Feel Good About
Saturday, September 04, 2010      11 comments

I feel really hopeful that I am on the brink of making the changes I need to feel good about my lifestyle and habits as well as my weight loss! The WAYMO challenge came just at the right time for me, and I am doing it!!... Read more
Trophy Junkie
Friday, September 03, 2010      13 comments

I just got my rewards from SparkPeople for August. I racked up 5 trophies: perfect attendance, SparkPoints, fitness minutes, consistency, and - ta dah - the Trivia A Student. So, August was a good month, but with my commitment to the WAYMO? (Wha... Read more
Goals for September
Thursday, September 02, 2010      7 comments

I joined the WAYMO (What are you made of?) challenge for September to give myself something to work toward. Looks like another great group of Sparkers. We are to set 5 individual, challenging goals for the month. I don't think it is cheating tha... Read more
Really Tired Today
Wednesday, September 01, 2010      15 comments

I'm really disappointed. I'm probably too tired to articulate it well, though. I signed up for the Better Sleep Challenge hoping to feel more rested. And actually night before last I had a great night's sleep. But last night I had a restless nig... Read more
In Control?
Tuesday, August 31, 2010      10 comments

I recognize that I almost have the body I want. I am within a pound or two of my ideal weight. Yet, I don't have the eating habits I want. For the past couple months, I have been over my calorie range more than in it. If I set my nutrition tra... Read more
Liberating Discovery
Monday, August 30, 2010      14 comments

I discovered, quite by accident, that I need not worry so much with my hair. This weekend I went swimming. I didn't have the time to wash and style my hair the way I usually do. I didn't even have a hair dryer with me, nor my round brushes, nor ... Read more
Took Another Risk Today
Sunday, August 29, 2010      10 comments

I played trivia again today and I only got 3 out of 4. I did not know that 2/3 of people with arthritis exercise; I guessed it was only 1/4. BUT I still have 90%, 87 out of 97. Will I be brave enough to play tomorrow? I'll lose my monthly trophy... Read more
Risky Behavior
Saturday, August 28, 2010      15 comments

I enjoy playing the Spark Trivia game. I guess I started playing just to earn those 3 SparkPoints a day, but I'd play now even if there was no pay off. And now they've even upped the reward. I got a Trivia trophy in June and I liked that. In Jul... Read more
