  • Day #90 of 100 ~ Creating an Energetic Life

    10/5/2015 12:38:22 PM, by LAFEMMEDELALUNE

    Hello, Sparkers! I am thinking of signing up for a couple of online (free) classes to keep myself sane during all of this down time. It is rather disturbing to watch my house get messier and my muscles atrophy, so I don't know if it will work, but I am looking into it. :) Today... Read more

  • Def Leppard Concert

    10/5/2015 12:23:39 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    I'll have to admit that the Def Leppard concert was one of the funnest things I've done in a long time. There is some amount of nostalgia involved when as an adult you finally get to see a band in concert that was a middle school/high school favorite. Lots of memories and a little sadness fo...

    10/5/2015 10:14:18 AM, by EOWYN2424

    Sigh! Another day where I can't reach my target weight! The doctor changed my dry weight to 59.5kg, up from 58.5kg. When I completed dialysis today, I was 60.7kgs, bad! But I've been wondering if my weight gain is in fact, muscle. Well, when my Mom came to pick me up, she suggested we get bana... Read more

  • Tracking nutrition

    10/5/2015 9:31:19 AM, by SHASHASHEILA

    I have found that when I use the Nutrition tracker on a regular basis, that even when I am not able to 'track' I am conscious of the healthy choices I am making - a mental nutrition tracker. Sometimes I catch up in SP at a later time if I have truly made healthy choices, However, if I have not ma... Read more

  • "The Time Machine"

    10/5/2015 9:26:23 AM, by MISSPEACHES3

    Sometimes it is funny the things a person with too much time on their hands will think about. I promise you I have plenty to do, but this morning my mind was wandering..... a lot. With all of that thinking time, I was looking at my "to do" list. I keep a log calendar of things I need to do outs... Read more

    10/5/2015 7:23:06 AM, by ONEKIDSMOM

    #1 is The YOLO (You Only Live Once) Trap - You use holidays as an excuse to eat whatever you want. This is the classic celebration trap.

    Today’s Scripture:“‘I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,’ says the LORD.”(Jeremiah 30:17, NKJV) Did you know that the human body is designed to heal itself? Many problems are easily fixed if the body is prepared. You may constantly struggle with a physical pr... Read more

    I'm also doing the 5% Fall Challenge, but I like how this challenge takes me into the holiday season. We all know how treacherous that time can be! Let's get started! We can do this! 9/20/15: 201.8 9/27/15: 202.8 (my mother-in-law died this week and that threw a huge wrench in my plans!) ... Read more

Other than that, not much of anything else, other than playing with the kids and kittens. Looking forward to a better wee... Read more

  • The Beck Diet Solution - Day 23 - Counter the Unfairness Syndrome

    10/4/2015 9:25:31 PM, by HARROWJET

    Many dieters give themselves permission to eat when confronted with issues of fairness. We have all grown up with the idea that life should be fair - but life is not fair. And dieting isn't fair. I have a choice when I have thoughts about dieting, eating, food, or weight that start with 'It's... Read more

    Well, this was a very busy day, but I got a lot done. After going to church, I came home and cut the grass. Should be the last time cutting for grass that has grown, but will have 1 or 2 times mulching the leaves that will fall. If there is a down side to autumn that is it. I hate cleaning up th...
