On October 25, 2009, I first got excited about SparkPeople and one of the goals I set was to get 8 hours sleep each night. Some of the goals I set like getting 25 grams of fiber daily, 2 servings of milk daily, and 200 minutes of walking per wee... Read more

Today's Feature: New Definition of Old

Friday, February 19, 2010      6 comments

Today's Feature on SparkPeople had a wonderful quote, "We think Webster should highlight 'old' with words such as 'courage, wisdom, athletic and perseverance.' " The article had a great write up about the Senior Olympics. I'd never thought about... Read more

Have You Taken the Real Age Test?

Wednesday, February 17, 2010      13 comments

For me it was a real boost when I needed one. It said that my real age is 51.1 which is 9.6 years below my chronological age. I bet you can find it if you just google on "Real Age" or sometimes I see banners on the SparkPeople site adverti... Read more

Eating Grapefruit for Free with a Smile on my Face

Saturday, February 13, 2010      11 comments

My daughter doesn't like grapefruit, and neither does her husband. They rent a home about a half mile from my house with a tree that is just covered with huge grapefruits. Their loss is my gain. I just harvested a dozen, and already ate two! Oka... Read more

Pressured

Friday, February 12, 2010      10 comments

Oh, these are the times that for years drove me to food! Things at work = nuts! Just can't seem to get the project I'm working on to come together. Feeling scattered; not enough time; don't have the core idea I need. Gonna meet with the boss her... Read more

My Favorite Greeting Card of All Time

Thursday, February 11, 2010      13 comments

My sister gave me my favorite greeting card of all times. It was probably 1987. A glossy luscious golden brown chocolate chip cookie filled the front portion. In ornate font it said, "Sister, If there was only one chocolate chip cookie left in t... Read more

Help Me Choose an Affirmation

Wednesday, February 10, 2010      14 comments

Maybe I should take a break from listing all the bizarre things I've done to lose weight, or all my SparkFriends may decide I'm just too weird. But I kind of laugh and kind of cry when I think of all the misery I've endured due to misinformation... Read more

So Very Grateful One Diet Strategy Didn't Work For Me

Tuesday, February 09, 2010      9 comments

Thinking about all the crazy things I've done to lose weight, by far the most dangerous one was in my mid-twenties. I reasoned that if people who quit smoking gain weight, maybe smoking would help me lose weight. Well, I tried smoking. I r... Read more

Better Laugh Than Cry

Monday, February 08, 2010      8 comments

Sometimes I laugh when I think of my previous attempts to lose weight. When I was in my teens I had a bad habit of waking up in the middle of the night and raiding the refrigerator only about half awake. In order to try to change that behavior, ... Read more

Perhaps you read my update. I got up to watch the 4:39am launch of the shuttle Endeavor. Here at our central Florida home we can clearly see night launches when we look east toward Cape Kennedy from our front yard. This morning was suppose... Read more

What Do You Tell Yourself?

Saturday, February 06, 2010      8 comments

Internal dialog or self talk is something I never really noticed for years. I mean, how could I not notice that every day, probably every waking hour, and probably many times in most waking hours, I was talking to myself? Most of the time the th... Read more

Screen Name Results

Friday, February 05, 2010      11 comments

A week ago I was considering changing my screen name. I love it when my now (as of today) 3 year old granddaughter calls me Old Mom. She was the one who gave me that name, so it is special. Yet, it seemed like adults -- and especially adults I d... Read more
