God Smiles

Thursday, June 14, 2007      1 comments

Several times today, I had the sense that God was with me, and that he was smiling. I don't know how else to describe it. There was the moment in the shop where I bought a pair of cheap espadrilles and the salesgirl was rude to me. I bit my tong... Read more

Sunday Afternoon

Sunday, June 10, 2007      0 comments

This is usually a time when - if I'm not visiting friends - I catch up on email, maybe take a nap, go for a walk, and then begin planning for the week ahead. Today is no different, but I keep thinking about 2 weeks from now when I'll be ge... Read more

Yesterday, I had an appointment with one of the personal trainers at the fitness studio (what we call "the gym" in Germany). This is a luxury I won't often be indulging in, but I wanted someone to help me put together a individual strength progr... Read more

As the Deer

Friday, June 08, 2007      1 comments

Yesterday, I accepted a challenge on the 1-Day Challenge Board to "feel the burn" - in some way, to up our exercise for the day. I'd been planning to take it easy with a 30-minute walk but decided to go for my 45-minute loop through the woods. O... Read more

The Long Run

Saturday, June 02, 2007      0 comments

From one of the Spark emails in my box today: "Donít give up on yourself. After all, itís never too late to be that healthy person you might have been." That's a pretty audacious statement for someone who is 55, but I'm holding on to that. More ... Read more

Eating All Day

Thursday, May 24, 2007      0 comments

There are days when I feel like all I do is eat! I've been planning my meals a day ahead, sometimes packing breakfast, lunch AND dinner to take into the city on those days when my schedule is particularly full. In order to eat everything I've br... Read more

The Blue Suit Fits!

Monday, May 21, 2007      0 comments

I lost three more pounds. So happy to see that scale move after last week's standstill! Inches haven't changed much. The best is that I fit into my navy blue suit so I can wear it to the church conference this weekend. I haven't worn it in... Read more

Bridge Day

Friday, May 18, 2007      0 comments

That's what they call these days that are between a holiday (yesterday's Ascension Day) and a weekend. Lots of people take a vacation day to make a long weekend of it. Probably for that reason, the fitness studio was really empty today and that... Read more

View from the Plateau

Monday, May 14, 2007      0 comments

I got on and off the scale about 5 times! Put on my glasses and checked again! Checked to see if the scale was adjusted right! But the needle still didn't move from the 69 kilo mark! I had always heard about the plateau, but this one really sur... Read more

This week has gone well. I've been consistent in meeting my goals, and flying high on the fact that I actually lost 3 pounds last week. Still, there was a good post on SP that talked about focusing, not on the losses, but on the GAINS. I've gai... Read more

Plugging along

Sunday, May 06, 2007      0 comments

Someone at church commented about my looking slimmer. That was a great feeling! It's a little tedious entering all my foods individually using the metric measurements, but it only needs doing once. My favorites list in the nutrition track... Read more

Out to lunch

Friday, May 04, 2007      0 comments

...yesterday and did pretty well! Went with one of my English groups to Block House, an American style steakhouse where you can ask for the menu in English (good practice for the students). I learned that the restaurant lists the nutrition info... Read more

Fast Fueler

Wednesday, May 02, 2007      0 comments

I finally got around to taking the profile quiz and it really nailed it. I continue to be impressed by all the tools and info on the Spark site. I'm curious how many others fit into the Fast Fueler type. Somehow, I have a feeling we may be in th... Read more

Balcony Blooms

Tuesday, May 01, 2007      0 comments

I got the 4 big flowerboxes planted and the trees transplanted before I ran out of dirt! All that bending and turning sure felt like exercise. My strength training per SP was a breeze after that. I probably could have counted it as cardio too :)... Read more

May Day!

Monday, April 30, 2007      0 comments

Tomorrow is a holiday in Germany. A free day at home can be dangerous because I may be tempted to snack! In the morning, I plan to work out on the balcony planting the flowers I bought at the garden store today. In the afternoon, I'll be visitin... Read more
