9 MONTHS ON SPARKPEOPLE - HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO ME
Happy anniversary to me on being here for 9 months. It's easier than having a baby, but only slightly (smiling). It's a lifetime commitment, so I won't go into how I'm disappointed that I haven't seen any weight loss in a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng t... Read more
Giving Away Two, New Free DVD's
I'd like to help two people out who cannot get DVD's right now due to some tough times. I have two new DVD's that I am willing to give away. They are just not to my liking. One is a Leslie Sansone, and the other is a double Jillian Michaels B... Read more
My First Reaction? I QUIT! My Next Reaction? NOPE! I'LL NEVER QUIT!
I worked my tush off last week, to the point where I thought the scale would applaud my blood, sweat and tears. (okay, just sweat) This morning, I bravely embarked on each of my scales. The first one - same weight, no loss. Same ole plateau.... Read more
YAY! I FINALLY SHOWED UP IN THE RIGHT-HAND COLUMN OF LEADER BOARDS
In a few days, it'll be 9 months that I've been on this great website. The weekly team leader boards have shown me at the top in the left-hand column for sparks points, but I eventually wanted to be in the fitness column. YAY! Yesterday I show... Read more
Ah Oh! The Perils Of Thinking I Can Eat More Because I've Exercised More
I've really worked hard this week, and thought I was "entitled" to eat out of my regular menu today. I was out at a great Mexican restaurant, and even though I didn't overdo it, had more than I bargained for today. I'll have to watch out as I ... Read more
You'll Hear My Scream Far and Wide
Monday morning will not be just any weigh-in day. It'll be a day when I'll go nuts if, after all my very hard work this week, I don't see a loss and downward trend after a very long plateau. If I don't see a loss, every city will reverberate w... Read more
Multi-Tasking While I'm on SP Website
While I'm thrilled about this website, I'm also unhappy with how much time I've been spending here. Working on the computer as a writer, I'm often on and off the SP site. In order to make this productive, healthy time, I've added a couple of t... Read more
I have just met my one-year anniversary date on October 13 marking the beginning of this healthier lifestyle change. Been giving the past year a hard look at all of the things that worked for me, and what didn't. Only through being completely ... Read more
Fighting the Remains of This Little Kangaroo Pouch
Besides the scale, I'll know when I've lost the rest of these 20 remaining pounds by the disappearance of what I affectionately (sometimes not so much) term my kangaroo pouch. While it is very cute in Australia on the actual animals, not very c... Read more
On this Date Last Year I Began This Adventure.Happy Thanksgiving to Canadian SP.Getting a SunLamp.
Whew, that's a long headline! Guess I have a lot to say today. Yes, exactly one year ago today I began this adventure in eating better and learning how to take better care of myself in healthy ways - exercise, food, sleep, water, portions, etc... Read more
Day 3- I failed at Detoxing from Caffeine. Will have to try again someday soon.
There is no Day 3. I made it to the second day without coffee and felt so sick that I succumbed to a 1/3 of a small mug. Thank you for all of the supportive blogs. I feel like a heel for failing. Like a dependent little addict. But I'll try... Read more
Day 2- No Coffee (and a big ouchie of a headache)
Yesterday was tough. By noon, I was ready to go to sleep. You wouldn't think that the very small amount of coffee I've been drinking would matter that much (1/2 small mug a day). By late afternoon, I hadthe huge headache that accompanies this... Read more
Day 1 - No Coffee
I've been through this before, and wow, am I in for days and days of migraine-like headaches! Even though I don't drink much coffee, I've decided that I really don't like a lot of things about it and that the slight energy-boost is not worth it.... Read more
To Go Raw or Not to Go Raw - that is the question!
Okay, I'm in awe over the results some sparkfriends are having with the raw diet. I've begun researching, and have to admit that it's like learning a new language. I've heard of juicers, but never really understood what they do, what they're f... Read more
Almost October 13 - Exact 1st Year Anniversary Date
I cannot believe that this year has evaporated so quickly since I started this healthy eating journey last Columbus Day. I started on that day since he was an adventurer and this change in my life would be a lifetime adventure. It's been quite... Read more
