Reason One SparkPeople Helped Me Through Strength Training

Thursday, May 17, 2012      11 comments

Today I'm a little sore from my SparkPeople Intermediate Runner's Workout I started almost two weeks ago. Guess I must have gone lower on those walking lunges or deeper on the squats. It's hard to decide if that soreness feels good or not; defin... Read more

Now Everything is Fine Again

Sunday, May 13, 2012      14 comments

Just when I thought everything was just about back to normal following my son-in-law's car wreck, my husband had to have an emergency appendectomy. I actually was dressed and leaving to go to the gym for my Saturday workout, which is usually my ... Read more

Everything is Fine

Friday, May 11, 2012      10 comments

So glad my son-in-law will be okay. Since his car wreck on Wednesday, he can't drive and doesn't have a car to drive anyway. Now he can be alone, but yesterday and the day before he wasn't suppose to, so I got to see a lot of him. I've spent mo... Read more

Always Something to Celebrate in Spark Land!!

Wednesday, May 09, 2012      10 comments

Just earned level 19 with 80,000+ SparkPoints. At times I have even commented that the points seem kind of pointless, but it is good to have them to give goodies and just to have positive things to celebrate. Thanks, SparkPeople. Had a gre... Read more

New Percentage

Tuesday, May 08, 2012      5 comments

Today, after I answered the 3 SP trivia questions as usual, I read something I have never read before, "you have answered 2409 of 2690 questions correctly, 90% correct". It had been at 89% for probably more than a year. Admittedly, sometim... Read more

Guilty Motivations

Monday, May 07, 2012      9 comments

I do find the positive advantages of living a healthy, fit life more motivating than avoiding the trials and tribulations of obesity. However, just over a week ago I had the chance to see and interact with many relatives I don't see on a regular... Read more

Not Too Sore

Sunday, May 06, 2012      7 comments

Glad to report I'm not too sore from the new workout I started yesterday. I really have to bend and stretch to even find any soreness. I did 7 of the 8 Intermediate Runners Workout exercises, but I swapped the Back Extension on the Ball for Back... Read more

A New Attitude

Saturday, May 05, 2012      12 comments

I did it! I finally changed my ticker to no longer show weight loss but to show number of weeks of weight maintenance. That is simply a more significant accomplishment to track and celebrate now. It was hard to give up that ticker showing t... Read more

Going for the HO!!

Friday, May 04, 2012      10 comments

Sometimes it just seems repetitive. Plan. Eat. Track. Eat. Track. Exercise. Track. Eat Track. Plan. Eat. Track. Eat. Track. Exercise. Track. Eat. Track. Plan -- and do it all over again. And over again. How much of this can I make habit and... Read more

Maintenance Motivation

Wednesday, May 02, 2012      10 comments

Thanks, SparkFriends. I appreciate all of you who suggested a shopping trip for my fading wardrobe. I'm going to set some goals and reward myself with some clothes. That will help. I appreciated ONEKIDSMOM's observation that it takes about ... Read more

The Thrill Fading?

Saturday, April 28, 2012      14 comments

There was a time when everything in my closet was new. After all, when you lose 80+ pounds you have to buy new clothes -- from PJ's to stockings, from casual clothes to dressy, even the watch band and the socks, all the old had to go. Now ... Read more

It's Sinking In

Friday, April 27, 2012      9 comments

Losing over 80 pounds has been exciting!! I was overweight more than 50 of my 62 years. Now it's been over 3 years since I achieved a healthy BMI and two full years since I got near the weight I've wanted to be since I was a teen. For the past 3... Read more

I'm looking for a good challenge for May. I want to take my eating up another notch. I want to exercise smartly as I anticipate half-marathon training starting June 9th. There are undoubtedly other issues in my life that could benefit from a lit... Read more

Almost Back

Sunday, April 08, 2012      16 comments

I'm ordering a new laptop this week and plan to be back Sparking regularly soon. I need SP and my SparkFriends. I weighed more at my Weight Watcher weigh in yesterday than I have in the past 18 months. I'm thinking I'm up about 6 pounds and... Read more
