Spark Coast--say something poitive
Thursday, June 21, 2018      4 comments

I don't say nice things about myself--I guess I was raised to not do that. But--supposed to be positive so--what good things do I do? I took a game to play with Bob--he is a "wordsmith" and is bored at the home. I sang again with Jean and Rocc... Read more
Current Goals

I have regained some weight--more than I like. The stretch fabric jeans still fit but those that aren't stretchy are tight. I WILL not go back up a size. So--I am going to drop 10 pounds by the end of Sept. That should be quite doable--except I... Read more

I do want to drop some weight--but I am working to keep my muscle mass UP (and the size 10 jeans fitting okay) and I am also working on some NOT weight-related goals--like getting rid of things I don't need and cleaning up the space we live in. ... Read more

Daily Spark had a great video about a mom who had "the perfect body" but it didn't make her feel better. Did you see it? And then an article about bathing suits. I have done some work with body image--I have made a body mask of myself--post baby... Read more

I know you are not in a good place right now--can't exercise due to the shoulder injury and walking on the bruised knee hurts. BUT--you cannot give up. Watch the food portions, drink lots of water, get enough rest, don't overdo any exercises tha... Read more
Spark Coach assignment--avoiding evening eating
Tuesday, February 06, 2018      6 comments

This one is hard cause hubby likes "something" in the evening before bed. I don't like to grab anything then but he does. Sometimes I have no trouble saying "no" but other times...well...I try to grab an apple or a clementine. He grabs ice cream... Read more

You are doing GREAT! You have lost so much weight--and kept most of it off. Don't your size 10 jeans still fit? And you are lifting weights! When did you EVER think you'd be lifting weights! Your shoulders are getting stronger and look great. Yo... Read more
