Sugar, Caffeine, Fitbit, Shoulder Pain, Fair Food

Sunday, June 28, 2015      8 comments

I thought it was about time for an update. I'm doing terrific with no sugar. That is, no added sugar other than what's in some food already. No desserts or similar. I don't want any and don't crave sugar. As a blueberry and watermelon addic... Read more

Back to Food Tracking Again

Thursday, June 18, 2015      14 comments

Yes, I've really gotta track my food to buckle down and stop this foolishness that I've had going on for awhile now. I've blogged about my erroneous thinking several times; that I exercise a lot and feel entitled to eat whatever, whenever, and ... Read more

Why Do I Sometimes Want to Take a SP Break?

Wednesday, June 17, 2015      7 comments

I really don't spend a lot of time on this website. However, I do support it by buying SP products, responding to SP friends' blogs, etc. But I really don't know why I feel tethered by it. I guess partly because I don't do any social me... Read more

Possible to Go to the County Fair & Not Eat Junk Food?

Saturday, June 06, 2015      13 comments

Of course, we know it is. But do we want that experience? Some of us do. I've attended some years and was a "good girl" and others when I wasn't. Not excessively bad, just enjoyably so. Of course, there's that point at which we do feel we a... Read more

I Went to the Class; Thank You Spark Friends

Friday, June 05, 2015      6 comments

Your encouragement in yesterday's blog responses helped push me out the door to the class. And, guess what? When the teacher asked if we could feel the particular pose, Ms. Smarty Pants here could really feel the benefits of the movement. Fun... Read more

Today's Schedule Allows for Chair Yoga Class, But I Don't Wanna Go

Thursday, June 04, 2015      10 comments

You know, sometimes I'm a bonehead and resist the things that will do me the most good. (smiling) Part of me feels that chair yoga is too easy, and another part says that it provides peace, so why not go while I have the space in my daily sched... Read more

If I Don't Wear the Fitbit, the Walk Doesn't Count

Tuesday, June 02, 2015      16 comments

Of course, this isn't true, but that's how dependent I've gotten on my little friend that tells me my number of daily steps. As I walked today, I smiled to think that I don't feel the walk counts when I forget my FB. Wishing all a happy da... Read more

Sunday, May 31, 2015      8 comments

Today is my dearly-departed cousin's (in black top in photo) birthday. Her best friend and I did a little ceremony simultaneously coordinated between San Diego and Las Cruces. She and I then talked about our happy memories. I met a friend and... Read more

Gasland, Part 2 (documentary).

Saturday, May 16, 2015      6 comments

I watched this documentary on Netflix last night and was so bummed-out (and I happened to be over-tired at the time, which didn't help), that I didn't make it to the second half. Honestly, to see what is happening to drinking water supplies in... Read more

Chair Yoga (first class attended)

Friday, May 15, 2015      7 comments

Yesterday, I was perusing the latest list of library class offerings throughout the county and decided to try one that was nearby (and free), which was Chair Yoga. Figured it couldn't hurt - any movement is good, right? Well, yes, it was v... Read more
