Turning Point

Tuesday, December 28, 2010      11 comments

Getting Better

Monday, December 27, 2010      4 comments

In 2010 I did a good job with exercise, averaging over 2 times per week strength training and 6 days per week of cardio. I plan to keep that up in 2011, but I have a strategy, not exactly new, to keep me motivated. I plan to track and improve ... Read more

I slept 8 hours last night. Good S for sleep! I already drank my 8 glasses of plain water today. Good W for water! I just finished boiling the eggs for deviled eggs. I made pumpkin bread, fudge, and yam casserole for tomorrow. I didn't... Read more

Did You Get SparkPoints?

Wednesday, December 22, 2010      9 comments

The other day I invited a good friend of mine to go for a hike at a county park. Sparkie EILEENV5 commented on all my SparkPoints. My good friend looked at me suspiciously. She asked, "Did you get SparkPoints for bringing me on this walk?" I lau... Read more

Friday, December 17, 2010      11 comments

I learned some things today at my appointment with the Director of the Health and Wellness Division of our YMCA. But most of all it was an affirming experience. The Director determined that my body fat percentage is 26.7%, which he conside... Read more

Black Leather Coat

Monday, December 13, 2010      10 comments

My mom bought a black leather coat with a fitted waist as motivation to lose weight. She never fit into it, so she gave it to my daughter when she was in high school. Last year I was excited to fit into it, even though it was a little snug. This... Read more

The Rip Cord

Sunday, December 12, 2010      9 comments

Well, I tried my treadmill workout with the safety cord attached today and it was frustrating. Three times the cord pulled out and stopped the treadmill abruptly. That is a jolt! It also means I lose all the data on my workout. However, I was us... Read more

Enjoyed the hike at Mary Holland Park in Bartow this morning. It was foggy and cool, but once we got started not too bad. I had heard of geo caching before, but today I got to see it. People with hand held GPS devices searched for coordinates. T... Read more

Free Fruit

Friday, December 10, 2010      8 comments

I really took advantage of free fruit this week in more ways than one. I went and harvested a whole bunch of grapefruits from the tree at my daughter's house. She and her family don't like them, but to me they are absolutely delicious and so muc... Read more
