I do very poorly with streaks and daily login requirements. emoticon The first time I was on SparkPeople, ... Read more
Life Just Kept Throwing Monkey Wrenches
Thursday, August 31, 2017      9 comments

So, the typical story I suppose. I joined SparkPeople in 2011 primarily to track food, then went all in and tracked my activity, joined groups, and over a 2-year period dropped 90 pounds. I regained about 10 but was doing well and found I ... Read more
A Goodbye to SP, Permanent or Semi-Permanent
Tuesday, July 16, 2013      48 comments

As mentioned in my feed and on my Spark Page, I'm going on a permanent (or semi-permanent if I randomly decide to return) hiatus from SparkPeople. I'm not deleting my page or removing teams or friends, just in case I do return for any reason, b... Read more

Oh my, oh my. Another month bites the dust, and another month gone, etc. Where did I get to with regards to my goals? 1) Track eating daily ... Read more
SparkStreak for logging in and spinning wheel goes poof
Friday, May 17, 2013      19 comments

It would have been 608 days with Thursday's spin. Instead, at the time I chose to make my spin, just as it finished and went to submit, SP took a critical dump. Next thing I knew, the status page was saying it would be around 4 hours for them ... Read more
A week of tracking so far
Saturday, May 11, 2013      13 comments

As I set my goal to do, I started tracking again as of 4 May. I am using a software called Living Cookbook rather than SP. The key reason for that is the software does a bit more including kitchen inventory (helping me keep track of what I hav... Read more
Mayday, Yes I May, Jennifer May makes May goals
Thursday, May 02, 2013      10 comments

It is May. (Yes, you MAY have already known that.) Today is May Day / Mayday, which to my memory was often pictured with a maypole, girls in spring dresses and flowered crowns dancing and weaving ribbons around it. Not that I ever actually sa... Read more
General Goals with Food
Monday, April 29, 2013      12 comments

I've been slacking for over a month now on food, eating more than I should, eating a lot more sweets than I need, being really lazy about cooking anything. On Friday I got a wakeup call of sorts. See ... I am definitely a food lover. Not ... Read more
Strength training - what can we focus on
Tuesday, April 16, 2013      11 comments

I said this in my previous blog, but wanted to expand on it more: "I do strength training for strong muscles and healthy joints, ligaments, and tendons." I rarely do things for just one reason. I love when I can live the cliche “two birds... Read more
Blue's Back Blogging
Monday, April 15, 2013      14 comments

(... and applying alliteration apparently.) I've been really quiet on the blog front, I know. One of the things with participating actively in the BLC (Biggest Loser Challenge) is that most of my other Sparking activities were side-lined. ... Read more

Cardio for Heart Health
Friday, March 08, 2013      10 comments

I had a really odd (to me) realization last night. I do my weight work (strength training) for fitness reasons. I love feeling stronger, more capable physically. I love knowing my bones are strong and my joints and tendons and ligaments a... Read more
Catching up on February
Wednesday, March 06, 2013      8 comments

Seems like I've been doing this a lot lately -- sliding a day behind here, a week behind there. Here it is nearly a full week into March and all I managed to do was LOOK at my February goals and briefly ponder their completion, or more appropri... Read more
