I've had many good starts on SP that I've just let come to a sputtering stop. I'm trying something a bit different this time. I'm using SparkPeople AND I'm using my BodyMedia arm band. These two tools finally work together (or I finally f... Read more

My Wii Fit age today was 37! I've done 12 minutes of yoga, 3 min of step aerobics and 7 min of "other" aerobics. I wish that I could unlock more yoga poses and aerobics already, but I think that it's smart that you're only given a few poses/ac... Read more

I played for about an hour on my Wii Fit today! This is after riding my bicycle over half a mile today to my sister's house too! I really should get to bed though, I'll be lucky to get 7 hours sleep now and I am seriously looking forward to st... Read more

We moved into our new house over the weekend and now I'm trying to unpack and find homes for everything. Our diet over the next couple weeks will not be as varied as I like because we're cutting down to basics for a while (beans and rice anyone... Read more

I'm enjoying this food plan! I cooked stir-fry last night and that's one of my favorite meals. I also had a serving of chocolate frozen yogurt for dessert! I've stuck to the one soda per day, down from having 4-6 in an average day. I typical... Read more

I ran across the Eat Right 4 Your Type book by D'adamo. It's quite interesting. I already know that I have PCOS and insulin resistance which means that I have an increased risk of diabetes, endometrial cancer, elevated cholesterol, heart disea... Read more
Back On My Mind Again
Thursday, February 18, 2010      0 comments

Just like the country song by Ronnie Milsap, Sparkpeople (and my health) is back on my mind again. I have to start following my doctor's orders again and cut out the simple carbs and most white stuff. The hardest food for me to give up is pota... Read more

I'm back at work after being off for almost 2 weeks due to severe tendonitis. I'm tired, and I'm a little sore (I climbed a fence yesterday to retrieve my dog), but overall it's going well. I miss being home all day though. I really enjoyed h... Read more

My mother-in-law proposed this crazy idea today. She suggested we play "The Biggest Loser" in our family. We are each allowed to use our own program, and we'll have one (or two) set(s) of scales available for our official weigh-in. Right now ... Read more

Okay, so this week has been pretty rough. On Tuesday at 1am, my oldest daughter woke up with an earache. We were up with her from 1-3 and during that time I was unable to straighten my right arm and it was sore at the elbow. I was able to dro... Read more

Sunday, September 06, 2009      6 comments

OMG! I've done so well this last month, but it's "that time" and so I'm craving anything and everything sweet. I was at my in-law's today and was going to eat a fresh baked cookie (it was going to be my second) and my husband actually took it ... Read more
