How long have you been on Spark People? This past week, I've read blog posts from more than a few Sparkers who were marking an anniversary. That, and a conversation I had last night with a friend, got me thinking about how long I've been on Spar... Read more

And This is Why I Need to Track My Nutrition

Monday, October 05, 2015      12 comments

I'm participating in the Fall 5% Challenge and one of our tasks this week is to track our food. All of it. Each day. I really don't care to track my food. I'm not sure why. Most of what I eat has been saved in "favorites" or "recent" and it... Read more

Dusting Myself Off...

Friday, April 03, 2015      14 comments

Well, March turned out to be an interesting month. The day I wrote my last post (3/8), I went to the beach with my family and I blew out my ankle. I was already dealing with a sore shoulder, so when I hurt my ankle, I really felt like a mess. ... Read more

Time for an Adjustment

Sunday, March 08, 2015      7 comments

Yesterday was the official end of the Winter 5% Challenge. How did it go? Overall, great! We had wonderful leaders with lots of good ideas to share, and "reporting" my fitness minutes and other details to my team made me feel more accountable. I... Read more

It's that time of year...New Year's Resolutions. Everywhere we look, we see nifty ideas on getting fit or getting organized "once and for all" or "New Year, new you!" I wish it were that easy, all my bad habits broken at the stroke of midni... Read more

May You Be Blessed Today...

Tuesday, November 18, 2014      4 comments

That's what a kind stranger told me today. I had held the door open for him. Then we were both on the elevator, on our way to our respective doctor's appointments. I was lost in thought, a little bit nervous. He got out one floor before me,... Read more

No, thank you!

Thursday, November 06, 2014      6 comments

My gym is undergoing renovations, so to keep us campers happy, they've been giving out freebies almost every day. Some days, it's tea and/or coffee, and some days it's sample-size hair-care products. Recently, there was a beautiful platter... Read more

My favorite thing to do on Spark is to read blog entries. I know, my favorite thing should be "trying new healthy recipes" or "doing a new workout video." Those are worthwhile activities that I definitely should be doing more often. But the... Read more

Checking In

Monday, October 13, 2014      8 comments

In my last blog, I wrote about how I wanted to make the time for some kind of creative outlet. So far so good! I've signed up for another crochet class at the rec, and I'm in the process of finishing a cowl I started in March. I've done a l... Read more

A tangled web

I'm hooked again! Last night was the start of a crochet class at the rec. I've taken this class before, probably six months ago, and the teacher is fantastic and the atmosphere is relaxed. I loved it! I wish the class was year-round, but it... Read more

Goodbye Summer?

Friday, September 19, 2014      5 comments

Some people have a poor sense of direction. I have a poor sense of time. Where did Summer go? There's a pumpkin patch cropping up at a nearby empty lot; a magazine I received in the mail yesterday had the phrase "autumn beauty" plastered on... Read more
