5,000 Points
Saturday, November 28, 2009      6 comments

I made it! I just got a new trophy for 5,000 SparkPoints. Now what does this mean? I am something of a reward junkie. There are times I write a blog because I have something to express. Sometimes as I put things in writing they become clea... Read more
It Disappeared!
Friday, November 27, 2009      3 comments

I just spent 15 minutes writing a delightful, insightful commentary to include in my blog. Just as I was proofing it, it disappeared! Oh, well. Let me think about what I was saying. Maybe the universe is warning me not to put that out there. Sta... Read more
Thanksgiving 2009
Thursday, November 26, 2009      2 comments

This year I'm not cooking. Cooking the holiday feast is a wonderful and terrible challenge and chore. If I had never gotten to do it, I would feel that I had missed something major. But, I've had the honor many times. This year I am thankful tha... Read more
Me? Push Ups??
Wednesday, November 25, 2009      5 comments

I never could do a push up in gym in high school. My arms were really weak. I had trouble getting the car door to close. My swim team coach said if he had one swimmer with my legs and my sister's arms, we'd have a swimmer. When I tried out for c... Read more
Turning Lemons into Lemonade
Tuesday, November 24, 2009      3 comments

Often it is easier to see the down side. Maybe your alarm didn't go off, or the car is running rough, your favorite figurine got chipped, you friend forgot your birthday, your stock went down, you got an impossible assignment at work, you broke ... Read more
In Praise of Wheat Germ
Monday, November 23, 2009      1 comments

I have finally figured out how to meet my requirements for magnesium and folate!. I've added some wheat germ to my oatmeal. It's yummy, too. Two weeks ago I was having a real problem with sodium. Every meal plan I made was way over. Well, ... Read more

Sunday, November 22, 2009      4 comments

At Weight Watchers on Saturday our leader commented that she thought the elastic waist band is one cause of the American weight problem. She encouraged us not to wear elastic waists to Thanksgiving dinner. Do you avoid elastic waist bands ... Read more
OldMom Happy!
Saturday, November 21, 2009      3 comments

Went for a walk with my local SparkPeople team. Natalie went in the stroller and alternated walking, pushing, and being pushed. We walked at the local environmental center. We saw alligators, anhinga, herons, storks, egrets, butterflies, and acr... Read more
I Doubt I Ever Would Have Started a Facebook Page...
Friday, November 20, 2009      5 comments

but SparkPeople encouraged me to do it. So far, it has been amazing. I found an old friend from my Peace Corps years, 1971-73 in India. I had last talked to her in 1977 and had totally lost touch. All my younger relatives are on Facebook.... Read more

Natalie is with me all day today. She is even spending the night while her mom goes to a professional meeting tonight and her dad is working. It is a gorgeous day and we enjoyed hours outside this morning. It had rained and the water ran down on... Read more
My Middle Finger May Get Me In Trouble!
Wednesday, November 18, 2009      7 comments

These days my middle finger is used in a way it never has been before - it displays my wedding ring. My ring finger is just too small. Yes, I know I should go get it re-sized. I will eventually. So far, my husband hasn't noticed, but I'm pretty ... Read more
The Scale is Up!
Tuesday, November 17, 2009      4 comments

I'm still not used to the scale going up. I was up two tenths of a pound from yesterday to 133.4. I suspect that is a good thing. At 5'6" I was happy to reach 165. Even thought about making that my goal weight. Then I hit 155 then 145 and then 1... Read more

Monday, November 16, 2009      3 comments

This morning I planned and entered my whole day of eating. This is the first time I thought ahead farther than the next meal since I've been on SparkPeople. My goal is to eventually have a full month of healthy meals planned with weekly shopping... Read more
Regrets, I Have a Few, but then Again.....
Sunday, November 15, 2009      3 comments

Eating healthy feels so right now. How I wish I had found this lifestyle years ago. How would my life have been different? Oh, who knows. With more confidence I might have made more mistakes! LOL None of us can go back. So let's go forward... Read more
Celebration: Natalie is Potty Trained! Knee Improving.
Saturday, November 14, 2009      3 comments

Natalie has gone one week with no accidents! Once she got it, she had it. Fantastic. Knee is a little better today, but I'm taking it easy. In reading the health info on SparkPeople it must be an LCL sprain. I expect full recovery in 2-4 w... Read more
