While I am happy that I was down a pound this morning if I had not gone over with the fun sized Snickers and then eaten bacon a few days later it might have been 2 pounds. My hubby asked me to fry up a pound of jowl bacon to crumble into a pan ... Read more

The bike works things a little differently and was something of a challenge this morning! My arms are going to get a good workout which is probably a good thing for my shoulders which have finally recovered from torn rotator cuffs. I was disap... Read more

Having been a good SparkGirl all week I decided to reward myself with a hike today. It was a perfect fall day and so many of my SparkFriends were heading outside for running or biking and I thought, "Why not me?!" I did take a few pictures but... Read more

Since we live out in the boonies with narrow, winding, hilly gravel roads that are not all that conducive to walking I am mostly relegated to the treadmill or videos. But with my new dedicated DSL line that is steady I can finally use my Surf S... Read more
