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

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

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

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

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

When I blogged about my shirt, several readers asked for a picture. A group of local team members met for a yummy potluck not too long ago at TBRANCH2's lovely home. I wore... Read more
Being My Own Best Friend

Next Wednesday or Thursday I'll blog about my weight. This week I'm not going to stress about the scale, but just focus on eating healthy and achieving at least a small calorie deficit. If it were my best friend in my situation, that is what I w... Read more
Fun Morning

I had a fun morning. I went to speaker's training and the trainer had a video of two people giving presentations. One of the people was me from about 3 years ago. The trainers and class went on and on about how much weight I've lost! If I ... Read more
Okay, I Did It Again!
Tuesday, August 24, 2010      13 comments

This morning I weighed 125.8, a full .2 below my selected "happy weight" of 126. At 5'6", that is a BMI of 20 and it just feels like the right weight for me. The lowest weight I have been in the last 35 years is 125.6, about 6 weeks ago. The las... Read more
