Duh!

Saturday, July 07, 2007      0 comments

I was starting to feel a little sad because no one had visited my SparkPage or left a comment. Just today I realized that there was no link to my page on my posts, and that my page wasn't in the members directory. Changed that...time to fix some... Read more

Today's my birthday and I made it - 30 minutes of daily exercise since April 30! The past couple of days have been pretty hard but the Lord has helped me persevere and Spark People have given me lots of support along the way. So glad I found thi... Read more

New Month

New month, new challenges! I'm aiming for 1000 cardio minutes in July. I'll continue my daily exercise challenge, too, maybe shoot for a total of 200 days. That will bring me close to goal weight time. It's amazing how submitting to discipl... Read more

We're starting a get-enough-sleep challenge on the Christian Music Lover's team and I'm going to have to "flunk" this first night. After getting home from class, then going to a long meeting at church this evening, I now have to get up early to ... Read more

The Muffin

Saturday, June 23, 2007      0 comments

On Thursday, I met with a former English student and, appropriately, we went to Starbucks. (There are actually 3 in our German city!) I had decided the night before to substitute one of their yummy muffins for dinner. I have to say that I did en... Read more

Milestone

Monday, June 18, 2007      0 comments

Today I weigh 10 kilos less than when I started on this trip in mid-March. That's 22 pounds, half of which I've lost since joining SP. This also means I need to lose only 3 more pounds and I can celebrate another milestone. If I keep up at... Read more

Patience, patience, patience...

Monday, June 18, 2007      1 comments

Do we ever stop learning patience? Today, during one of my music lessons, the Lord convicted me of my impatience. This little girl is a dreamer, quite unconcentrated and really only comes to piano lessons because her mother wants her to. She oft... Read more

Today I wore the jeans that have been hanging on the back of the wardrobe door since I joined SP! I'm wearing them for the first time in about 5 years. Reading other people's pages and posts, it seems that a getting into a favorite pair of jeans... Read more

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

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

PT

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
