Sundays reviewed
Sunday, January 29, 2017      5 comments

I usually dread Sunday. Not because of how busy it is, or that I usually sit through the same sermon 3 times. I dread Sunday because I can never seem to keep even close to my goal. Fifth Sundays are even worse because we have a fellowship after ... Read more

Getting ready to get stuff done around here. So much to do because it is January. Church finances need worked on. Our finances need organized so that taxes can be done quickly. Housework needs done. Dogs need some extra loving. I need some me ... Read more
Starting a New Year
Sunday, January 01, 2017      8 comments

Yes it is a new year. I will not 'start' over but I will reevaluate my progress and renew my goals and recommit to getting healthier. My spark goals activity level seemed to be a bit too high which allowed more calories than I think I really n... Read more

Last night DH told me of possible HUGE change in our household. Thinking through changes needed in preparation for it. Overwhelmed by everything. Can we be ready in time? Do we want to? Will DDs agree to the changes that are needed? I will need ... Read more
Recovering and Reflecting

This weekend was a lot harder on my body than I expected. I am sore and stiff from all the standing, cooking, packing, unpacking, setting up, serving, and cleaning up associated with our Christmas dinner. We have done this for the last 8-9 years... Read more

My new goal
Monday, December 12, 2016      5 comments

I've been a bit lax with my walking lately. Even when I'm less than 1000 steps from my daily goal, I just crawl in bed saying I'm too tired. 1000 steps. That's just 5 to 10 minutes more walking / marching around the house. Surely I can walk for ... Read more

Well the kids gingerbread house party is done. It was supposed to be at another church with a lot of people helping, but the church hosting backed out and two of the leaders backed out so we had it at our church. I did pretty good about the cand... Read more

I had a procedure done on Monday. They gave me several medications to make it easier for them. They made it harder for me. I have not seen 200 in at least 2 years even at bed time after a day full of eating and drinking no 200. This week I have ... Read more

Around here the saying is actually Sparty On, but today I think I did very well with my first big party of the Christmas season under my belt. I ate moderately all day, drank most of my fluid goal before arriving. I drank 3 diet sodas at the pa... Read more
Let The Parties Begin!

This Saturday is our first Christmas party. I will not over eat! I will not deny myself before (so I can eat more there and end up bingeing), or during (so I eat more later- bingeing). I will eat what I want but in small to moderate portions. I ... Read more
Another Test
Tuesday, November 01, 2016      5 comments

I had another test yesterday.... I wish they would stop thinking of more ways to poke and prod me. The next test is scheduled for EARLY December. They don't expect to find anything "bad" just to be sure.... She implied that if I lose a bit more... Read more

This week we have been working on the basement floor next door. Scrubbing, mopping, sweeping, painting, spreading chips, clear coat, clear coat, and another clear coat on high traffic areas. My portion worked out to be about 5-6 hours of sweepin... Read more

When the stress let's up, look out. I don't usually stress eat. I eat after the stress is gone. I've been under a ton of stress lately and it's got to get better soon. But when it does I have to be extra careful about my eating. I can easily e... Read more
