Yoga date night!
One of the reasons that pushed me over the edge (& THANK GOD) of joining up at the gym again,
was because Ted aka Mr Spooky had been feeling like he was losing range of motion, at the tender age of 44.
He said he wanted to try yoga.

I woke up today feeling 'skinny'.
You know that light, clean good feeling from working out regularly , eating healthy & well (gross) being regular?
So I stripped off my pjs & leapt on the scale.
It says I am UP 3 lbs since last we... Read more
How Long Have I Been Here?
Am I sleeping? Have I slept?
I had to follow up my question with a quote from Fight Club.
Yes, I am still here.
I am still fighting.
About a year or so ago, I was complaining (again) about my weight, & how I'd gained back almos... Read more

I know 2 months of circuit training isn't going to completely snap m... Read more
Will Walk for Nailpolish
Yesterday I saw a hand (playing glockenspiel) & that hand had on very pretty orange-red nail polish.
In the 70s they called that color China Red.
I didn't like it then, but I love it now.
So, like a horse with a carrot, I said I cou... Read more
Circuit Training & H.I.T
I feel really good today. Do you want to know why?

I know I have not been a good Sparkfriend, I tend to just put in my tracked foods/exercise into the tracker on my mobile phone,
& then don't think to check in on my computer for some actual interaction (& motivation)... Read more
Today my friend couldn't make our walk ~ so, I walked alone!
It's nice to have a walk buddy, but ultimately, it's up to ME & I am the one who wants to get into 'that dress', & not quake in fear when I get an email saying someone has tagged... Read more
The Reckoning- what am I doing?
It's ok, & just part of my fitness journey-
but I fell off the fitness track- although I've been pretty good about tracking meals & staying within my limit (albeit at the top of my caloric intake)
& not eating junk,
I am still at a plat... Read more
McDonald's comes through!
*disclaimer- this is about fast food, so if you are not into that, see you another time!
So, I guess 50 % of my blogs are turning into fast food reviews, I guess I will have to come up with a Spooky the Cat ranking system- using witch's hat... Read more
3 years on Spark
So, I realized I have been on Sparkpeople 3 years!
I have in that time lost 20 lbs, put 13 back on, & am now 8 lbs away from goal.
Oh yes, I have a Mini Goal weight too!
I want to be back in the 140s.
A couple of weeks ago my husb... Read more

But here is a tip for those looking for a quick bite of something a little different & you live North of the Mason/Dixon & won't be offended by basic fast fo... Read more
I hate our guts!
That was last night's joke between my husband Ted & me.
We both are the not-so-proud owners of a Round Belly GUT, which we both are pretty unhappy about.
(I still think he's cute, he still thinks I'm cute- but we are disgusted with ours... Read more
