Priming the Motivation Pump

Saturday, December 19, 2009      4 comments

I read this morning's blog by Chunkster, and it reminded me that motivation is like having to fan a fire. It doesn't automatically keep going, you have to keep priming that pump to keep it going. Since around September or October, I began to s... Read more

Hanging in there is the best I can do right now...

Friday, December 18, 2009      13 comments

Each day seems to bring a new bump in the road, so I'm just trying to hang in there with healthy eating and exercise as best I can. Words fail me right now.... Read more

In a few days... 11 Month Anniversary on Sparkpeople! Where did the time go?

Thursday, December 17, 2009      2 comments

In four days, it'll be 11 months since joining this great site. Can't believe how fast this year has evaporated. My progress has been in several non-weight loss ways, and as valuable as though I'd lost more weight. I've kept off the 34 I've l... Read more

It' Not Easy Being Green (Kermit the Frog)

Wednesday, December 16, 2009      4 comments

I picked up a sweet little book with quotes by Jim Henson, the creator of the muppets and the voice of Kermit until he died. It's nice to read the positive thoughts and topics about creativity. I miss him on this planet and still enjoy occasion... Read more

Thanks to Sparkfriends, My "Break" From Spark Was Not a Long One

Tuesday, December 15, 2009      16 comments

I never cease to be amazed at how precious the spark network of friends is! Honestly, I'd never blogged before coming to this healthy website and the idea was alien to me. But I immediately understood the value of reaching out, sharing my thou... Read more

Off to A 5 Mile Lake Walk

Sunday, December 06, 2009      9 comments

It's very early Sunday morning, and I'm ready to go to do a great lake walk. Not much else to talk about. Have a good day, friends.... Read more

When You Play, You Pay (Dreading First Weigh-In since Thanksgiving)

Saturday, December 05, 2009      11 comments

Okay, yes, I take complete responsibility for my transgressions. I know the scale will tell a woeful tale on Monday morning weigh-in. After a year of almost perfect program, I slid (since October) in ways that I've surprised myself. Yikes! Se... Read more

"The Spark" (book) Can't Arrive Soon Enough

Friday, December 04, 2009      5 comments

I have to admit that I am at a point with this forever plateau (that I thought I'd broken, but didn't) where I'm beginning to get discouraged and despondent. I'm really looking forward to this new book as a tool to get me going again.... Read more

Found a ton of freebie websites in the latest issue of Woman's World. The ones I will list are those I've already checked out and found some really nice things. No strings or gimmicks. Hard to believe, I know. Hope you find something free th... Read more

No More "A Little of This" or a "Little of That"

Wednesday, December 02, 2009      14 comments

I'm heading out to get groceries and ruefully acknowledge that after losing 34 lbs. since October 08, I got a bit cocky with myself. I thought I could handle just a little bit of the bad stuff. For example, a sparkfriend helpfully suggested a ... Read more

Bonding w/This Bright Yellow Stability Ball & Picked up Trans-Siberian Orchestra Ticket

Tuesday, December 01, 2009      7 comments

I'm starting to have a lot of fun with this new ball, which I'm blogging about twice in a row. (smiling) Using it for my desk chair as well. Might have to get another one while it's on sale at Big 5. Picked up my ticket today, and can't belie... Read more

New, Huge, Bright Yellow Stability Ball

Monday, November 30, 2009      8 comments

I had a tiny exercise ball, but just got a huge reinforced one that accommodates all sorts of exercises. Plus, I love to stretch out my spine on it. Looking forward to using it with several new DVD's. I have a mini-gym at my place, so there's... Read more

I Rebel, I Eat, and Then I Realize New Things

Sunday, November 29, 2009      11 comments

After a year of eating better and doing other healthier things, I sometimes feel that I have come so far. And other times, not so much. It's like that saying about the more I know, the more I realize there is so much more to learn. I've l... Read more
