Wednesday, December 02, 2009      5 comments

I'm going to try to blog every day for the rest of the month as a form of accountability. Reporting my fitness, giving myself a daily score (0-5) and expressing my feelings about my efforts toward my goals. I hope to finish the year by bei... Read more
Perfect Sweet Potato Pie
Tuesday, November 17, 2009      8 comments

The one item I look forward to during the holidays is sweet potato pie. My mom was my source and until I joined Spark, she'd make me a whole pie which I'd bring home and polish off in a day. When I started eating better, I'd go to her house and ... Read more
I think I'm on the injured list
Sunday, October 11, 2009      6 comments

When I was lying on the couch pushing the remote control for exercise, I never once got hurt while doing so. I'm just sayin'. Since getting off the couch I've sprained my foot (which was very painful) and broken a toe (not really due to ex... Read more
I've got this attention span issue
Thursday, October 08, 2009      2 comments

I cannot tell you how many afghans and quilts I've started, there've been so many, but I can tell you that I have never finished even one. Back when I was sewing regularly, I could make a simple dress in a day and I did that a lot because if so... Read more
My rekindled Spark
Friday, October 02, 2009      9 comments

I'm so fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend the Spark convention. To meet SparkGuy and the staff and be in the presence of many others who love and appreciate this site as much as I do was so fabulous. This was a girl's road tri... Read more
By the hair of my chinny chin chin

I managed to lose .4 lbs this past week. And that's despite the many dietary lapses I had. I succumbed to the bags of junk on top of my daughter's fridge and ate out without preplanning what to order. The walking saved me. One thing brough... Read more
I had my first TOPS weigh in today

And the good news is I lost 1.8 lbs. So far, joining is having exactly the effect I was hoping it would; I'm motivated. I want to show progress and be successful. This is a wonderful program that's been around for 60 years and a lot of people ha... Read more

I was making breakfast and still deciding how/when/where I'd get my walking done today when I got a message from a fellow Sparker asking if I wanted to meet for a walk. We put in 3 miles, including twice up a hill and a set of stairs twice. Aft... Read more
September is not going to be about what I PLAN to do, but what I ACTUALLY do.
Saturday, August 29, 2009      17 comments

I'm always posting my plans, detailing what I intend to do, how I'll get it done, yada, yada. What I actually get done adds up to less than half the plan, leaving me feeling disappointed in myself. I feel fat, useless, powerless, helpless;... Read more
10,000 Steps Team August in review

1)What I accomplished: I feel as if I've been dizzy since July and I'm just beginning to orient myself. All in all, weight wise, I feel as if I accomplished next to nothing in August. 2)What challenges I had: The complete disruption of my... Read more
I think I may be on to something.

Several of my recent blogs have been about my slow progress, lack of motivation, attempts to get back on track, yada, yada... The other day, I got serious about trying to find an answer, knowing that it is within myself, somewhere. So I d... Read more
