  • Today!

    10/22/2016 5:29:06 AM, by LCDDUB

    Well Sparkers, for some unknown reason I woke up after about 3+ hours of sleep and couldn't fall back like normal, so I decided to get up and mess around and if I get tired, back to bed, if not, then I move on with my day. This happens to me rarely, but it does happen. Hoping all you Sparkers ... Read more

  • Getting over the flu

    10/22/2016 3:32:50 AM, by MISSA526

    Ugh... Was so sick this weekend. I managed to get so light exercise in. But then I started throwing up water. I think I'm finally over it. I've been eating only oatmeal and scrambled eggs (1egg 2 egg whites), and so saltines. If I had to look on the bright side I've lost a little over 4 pounds. Sti... Read more

  • A Little Update: Bronchitis! (Streaming suggestions needed...I'm board already!)

    10/21/2016 11:43:43 PM, by DISNEYLIFE

    Last week rocked! It was a week off from work and everyday I managed to do some little something to add progress to this little venture. Well, THEN on Thursday... even though I went to my NEW water aerobics class... I decided that I had been ignoring (as I often do) the simple fact that I was getti... Read more

  • 100 days of exercise day 90

    10/21/2016 10:13:35 PM, by AMIEMICHELE

    I can't believe I have made it to day 90. Today was my errand and meeting day so it was a little bit of a crazy day. I did 10 minutes of walking and 10 minutes of stretching. It has been a long week and I am tired and done with it all. Hopefully I complete all my projects tomorrow because I now have... Read more

  • Friday....Zumba 2x and a tune up!

    10/21/2016 10:09:21 PM, by TERRI289

    Took one class, taught one class and had lunch with two of the ladies in my second class! Then on the way home my check engine light came on! Fortunately I live close to my mechanic. I stopped to ask how long I could drive with the light on. They decided that the car needed a tune up so they di... Read more

    TGIF! I am so glad today is over! Another boring day at work. Instead of lunch, I decided to check out the fitness center there, and used the tread mill and eliptical during lunch instead of eating. When I came back from lunch, there was a chef salad sitting on my desk. I had helped a teammate... Read more

    I am feeling very blah tonight. I am very pessimistic. Usually when I sign up for a weight loss group, I am excited and very optimistic. This time..... not so much. Maybe I have finally hit rock bottom. Perhaps I am aware of my limited budget and know that I need to eat what I currently have at the... Read more

  • Your Golden Years

    10/21/2016 8:15:20 PM, by PATRICIAANN46

    Some people embrace their golden years, while others become bitter and surly. Life is too short to waste your days in the latter mode. Spend your time with positive, cheerful people, it'll rub off on you and your days will seem that much better. Spending your time with bitter people ... Read more

    You know, I really can't complain. This LCHF thing is actually going quite well. Since 10/7, I've lost almost 9 pounds. I'm not going to record my official loss for the month until 10/31 (motivation to keep going) but I am periodically checking in with the scale. I haven't really ... Read more

    Pt today with Ryan went well. Next week I think I will be starting the ultrasound therapy with medicine. I believe it is Voltaren gel mixed with the ultrasound gel. That should be interesting. Today was laundry, errands, bring more things to Dad's house and tossing some out. I made a Dutch ... Read more

    Between 2-3 in the afternoon is when the sugar demon hits me. My most recent dance with the demon has proven to be no exception.

    10/21/2016 3:37:27 PM, by RAGNAR359

    I have found that even though I'm doing my healthy lifestyle I still fall on my face (usually landing on pizza). Then I would hate myself for being so weak. But now if I fall, I get back up and hit it again hard. It's the same for exercise until you realize how good you feel after exercising. It ... Read more

I've been waiting s-o-o-o long for the numbers to go down. I'm happy about it but haven't told anyone but my friends at SP. It's ... Read more

    I shared in an old blog entry about the Wellness Program at my job. They started it as a means to motivate employees to live healthier lives. (I believe the rising insurance costs probably had something to do with it...but I can't say as I blame them.) So, in the beginning, the Program had fe... Read more
