  • Do Not Worry if It is a Box of Chocolates

    7/24/2017 3:27:54 PM, by AGEE1944

    Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are going to get. But, let me add this. All we go through helps build character, strength, resilience, and, most importantly, faith to realize who has our backs. Bless His holy name. 296... Read more

  • Do What You Can!

    7/23/2017 9:56:19 PM, by AGEE1944

    Walked in spite of feeling ill last three days. Looking forward to getting, ASAP, back to my standard. One thing is absolute. Nothing remains the same. Got back on the "bicycle," my usual walking and stationary bike exercise routine a few days ago. Now, I am slowed by some unknown medical issue... Read more

  • Keeping Track

    7/23/2017 12:58:01 AM, by BJEAN614

    I started back to Sparkpeople on May 28. I spent the first 4 weeks easing my way back into the program. I was not using the program properly, nor was I taking advantage of all that it offered. In those first 4 weeks, I could see myself sabotaging my efforts before I got started. Doing the very behav... Read more

  • Back to Food

    7/21/2017 3:55:18 PM, by BJEAN614

    I have a problem that I thought I'd never have. I am sure I am not eating enough. New plan: I will pull up my food charts and go over them. Next I will plan what I'm going to eat and have it on hand. I am an eat on the fly type of person and I don't think that is going to change. In order to be succ... Read more

  • Waiting on Our Heavenly Father is Worth It!

    7/19/2017 10:51:22 PM, by AGEE1944

    Been a while since I have posted. But, I just anted all to know that my health has improved because of God's grace and mercy. Back walking. Just have to keep in tune with my body and the messages it gives me. I call on God's protection when I take my walks of 6-7 miles each day. Some days are m... Read more

  • Food, Always Food

    7/13/2017 2:03:45 PM, by BJEAN614

    Sometimes I feel like I am constantly thinking about food and not in a good way. I think about what I should and shouldn't eat. I think about how it should be prepared. To salt or not to salt. How I'd like it to taste. Am I eating enough or am I eating too much? Am I really hungry or am I bored and ... Read more

  • Low point

    7/11/2017 1:17:24 PM, by BJEAN614

    I am out of shape. Embarrassingly, out of shape. I did a Sparkpeople video this morning and saw the effects of months and months of sitting on my ass. Knowing that I am physically weak is scary and, frankly, hard to admit. The only thing that got exercised was my fingers on the remote control. I've ... Read more

  • Weigh-in day

    7/9/2017 3:13:33 PM, by BJEAN614

    The day I have dreaded is here. It's weigh-in day. For me, it's like going to the doctor and having my blood pressure taken. The nervousness I'm feeling is comparable to that. I know what I'd like the reading to be but more likely than not my body does what it wants.I can't control what the scale wi... Read more

  • Fatigue

    7/8/2017 7:47:13 PM, by BJEAN614

    I woke up yesterday, took the dog for a walk, fixed myself a good breakfast and went upstairs to get ready for work. I sat down on the bed. That was it. I'm tired. The fatigue hit me and next thing I knew, I'm on the couch. I tried not to nap but I was out like a light. Same with today; slept most o... Read more

  • The Park

    7/6/2017 12:50:33 PM, by BJEAN614

    I moved close to a city park some years ago. My intent was to take advantage of the park, enjoy the beauty and the space and to meet new people. I enjoyed it from my window. Where ever I was in my house, I could look out the windows and see the park. The dog could see the park and spazz out over all... Read more

  • Planning

    7/5/2017 7:50:59 PM, by BJEAN614

    It's time for dinner and what shall I eat? Hmm, I didn't thaw anything out or prepare anything. I was lucky to have been able to dig something out of the fridge and freezer. Using a little imagination I'll have a decent meal which will use a lot of the 600 calories that I have remaining. Now I reali... Read more

  • Dare

    7/4/2017 12:39:49 PM, by BJEAN614

    Happy 4th of July, although I wonder if we, in this country have anything to be happy about. Enough of that, I'm here to escape all the drama that is going on in the world. Since I've returned to SP, I've barely watched television. That is a good thing. I'd sit staring at the television and watch a... Read more

  • New Goals

    7/3/2017 3:27:28 PM, by BJEAN614

    II was re-reading the goals I'd set for myself when I first discovered SP. It had been a long while and a lot has changed. I'm not that person now. I had to laugh then take time out to set some new goals. I'm not gonna do the shoulda, coulda, wouldas. I'm moving on and accomplishing one small challe... Read more

  • What now?

    7/2/2017 11:16:53 AM, by BJEAN614

    It's been about a week since I restarted. I've tracked my water, started tracking my food and my steps. It's a solid beginning. My weigh in day is Sunday morning. I weighed and I've gained, not a lot but it's a gain. What now?... Read more
