Sparkaversary, Giving Back, Leaderboards, and Miscellaneous Thoughts
It's been 11 months since finding SP, and each month I reflect upon the benefits derived from this site. Friendship, tracking, accountability, learning, fun, etc. But more than that, from my recent 3-day "break" from SP, I realized that there ... Read more
Priming the Motivation Pump
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...
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?
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)
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
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
Time to Take a Break from SP

Off to A 5 Mile Lake Walk
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)
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
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
FREEBIES I'VE FOUND & WANT TO SHARE
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"
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
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
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
