Evening out
Wednesday, October 07, 2009      2 comments

I asked my grandson this a.m. to give me something to blog about and he said "pie." I said great! but started thinking. And I came up with the idea of evening out food. I will explain, but I did this all my life. As an adult, I found out my ... Read more
Phat is out, sick is in!
Tuesday, October 06, 2009      2 comments

While riding with my grandson he said, "Look at that sick car!" I quickly glanced, expecting to see a wreck. I told him I didn't see a clunker or wrecked car. He said (patiently) that sick meant cool or good or groovy or whatever. I asked h... Read more
Weather and exercise
Monday, October 05, 2009      4 comments

Isn't it amazing what a change in weather can do to make you feel more (or less) like exercising? We've had high 90s and 100s all summer and I did NOT feel like exercising. However, I got up at 5:30 a.m. every day and went for a walk. It was ... Read more
Because is not an answer
Friday, October 02, 2009      3 comments

I asked my preteen grandson a question and he answered "because." How many times has a child, spouse, or friend answered because or just because. I told him that because wasn't a complete answer. It gave me no idea of what the answer was. He... Read more
If you don't post every day
Thursday, October 01, 2009      1 comments

I have read so many entries about people who get too busy to post--either food or exercise. And you know what happens? They don't eat right or exercise. Duh! You have to keep up the posting to keep yourself honest. I found this out. When w... Read more

When I can't think of anything appropriate or clever, I talk about the weather. It was darn right cold this early, early a.m. I'm going to have to start wearing longer pants since I'm used to pedal pushers (or whatever they're called now). I ... Read more
No brain storm
Monday, September 28, 2009      1 comments

I have no big brain storm idea for today's blog so I'll write about the weather. It's craaaaazy! My DH was in Lake Tahoe this weekend and he said the weather was gorgeous. However, forecasters said it would snow on Wed. Fall? Our weather in... Read more

Am I cheating? I haven't said anything but I've had a gastric bypass. It was quite a long time ago. But I've seen people on SP using Weight Watchers, Pritikin, South Beach, so I guess we all can have our own things. The doctor told me the by... Read more
Nordic Walking Sticks
Saturday, September 26, 2009      4 comments

Has anybody every used or know of anyone who uses Nordic Walking Sticks? I've been looking into buying some. The info said they help use the upper body as well as the lower body. Is this true? I'm not a fast walker yet because of sore knees ... Read more
The Spark
Friday, September 25, 2009      3 comments

I preordered The Spark, the book that is coming out in Jan. Why? Probably to help spread the Spark and to make it a top seller so we can get on Oprah and other talk shows. But the real reason? Prizes, gift certificate, gifts? Nope! They of... Read more
Flu Shot
Thursday, September 24, 2009      6 comments

I got my flu shot today. $24.99 at Walgreens. No wait. They want the elderly (who me?) to get their shots. For the swine flu shots, we're at the bottom of the lis. That's okay with me. I guess they figure maybe we're somewhat immune or the... Read more
Spark Points and Goodies

Have you every tried explaining SP and SG to other people. I always get a look like, WHATEVER! I tell people that I work hard to get my SP and they ask why, what can you do with the points? I try to explain how you get a trophy of some sort ... Read more

Sometimes when I start walking I feel really upbeat and ready to conquer 2 or 3 miles. Other days, like today, I can barely eke out 30 min. I push myself because if I wait until later in the day, it'll be too hot to walk. Yes, we still have h... Read more
Half the carbs!
Monday, September 21, 2009      2 comments

SP said to take no more than half your calories from carbs. I can't seem to get there. I keep going over. I'm doing fine with fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, etc. but not the carbs. I usually have something carbo for breakfast--cereal or... Read more
Now what?
Sunday, September 20, 2009      5 comments

Now what do I do? Hmmmmm. I just made 10,000 Spark Minutes. I reached for a goal and achieved it. To continue on I have to make a new goal. Yes, 15,000 SM sounds good but I need something else. Maybe more fitness minutes? That would be go... Read more
