Not a Human Garbage Can

Monday, May 28, 2012      12 comments

Good day at SeaWorld. Lots of walking. I even walked an hour pushing the stroller while Gwen slept. I had grilled chicken caesar salad. They gave me a half cup of dressing on the side, but I used less than a tablespoon and it was plenty. I pick... Read more

In Control of the Trend

Sunday, May 27, 2012      10 comments

Looking back over the years, any time I avoided stepping on the scale, I was gaining weight. So I know I need to weigh regularly. But I should not be too concerned about any one regular weigh in, definitely not let it ruin my day. I need to look... Read more

But I Really Wanted the WHOLE Potato

Friday, May 25, 2012      11 comments

Usually when I bake potatoes for hubby and family, I have a half or a third or sometimes even a quarter of the potato. But this time I just really wanted the whole huge potato all for myself. So I looked up "potato" in the SP nutrition tracker.... Read more

Gym for the Next 10 Days

Wednesday, May 23, 2012      7 comments

I get my car back tomorrow at least for 10 days. DD & DSIL get a rental as the other party today accepted responsibility for the wreck. I'm going to really enjoy going to the gym for a few days. My hubby wants us, retired people who don't drive ... Read more

Lots of good healing going on here: * Hubby's healing well and has been released by the doctor just 9 days after appendectory! * Son in law's forehead is healing well, too. Really have to look to see where the stitches were. * Sister expe... Read more

No Excuses

Monday, May 21, 2012      9 comments

Ooops! I did it again. Got a minor injury messing a little with my big plans for strength training. Saturday as I did my Walk-Away-the-Pounds kind of moves while watching TV I tripped over my aerobic step. I couldn't quite catch myself, so I dir... Read more

Not Making That Mistake Again

Sunday, May 20, 2012      7 comments

What allowed me to succeed this time when I had battled obesity unsuccessfully for more than 5 decades? One mistake I made over and over was eating too little. I'd go on extremely calorie restricted programs. The liquid protein diet that made me... Read more

Home Challenge

Saturday, May 19, 2012      6 comments

I'm going to do my best strength training session at home ever today. With no car to drive to the gym, I'm taking on home ST as a challenge (with the help of SP workouts, of course). I'm going to do my ST first, as that is my focus this month, b... Read more

Trick for Preschoolers' Active Play

Friday, May 18, 2012      8 comments

Natalie and I have played and played and played with bubbles. I thought we knew everything there is to know about bubbles. But I just find out something that makes it even more fun and active. Wet your hand and you can catch a bubble right in yo... Read more

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
