I'm really struggling with staying on my eating plan. I like the food. I like the way I feel when I follow the plan. But I can't seem to walk away from the "fun" foods, especially when we're eating out or at special events. I'm pretty much... Read more
Tracking and other changes
Friday, May 27, 2016      2 comments

I decided today that I need a little more focus on eating properly. I do like how I feel following the Eat to Live plan but I find I've lost focus and have had a lot of "slips". So today I'm going to start tracking again and try to ke... Read more
Slow going

I had to take it easy when I realized my muscles were getting too sore. Now it's hard to get started again. Yesterday I worked on an organizing project at home that required a good bet of bending over and I developed spasms in my low back ... Read more

Ok - this is my first blog since returning from vacation to discover they changed the format of the Sparks Page. I'll have to live with this a while before I decide if I like it. Now, I did awful on my vacation. We were camping so I had pre... Read more

Back to a one day streak. We went back to our daughter's to help with part of the move. I was already sore and tired from some unexpected wintery weather. Temps in the very low 30s and snow (yes I said snow) flurries off and on all day was... Read more
Pho for supper
Saturday, May 14, 2016      2 comments

My daughter made vegetarian Pho the other day and that sounded like a great option to add interest to my vegan plan. Especially since we're getting into warmer weather. The problem with soups as it gets warmer is they seem so heavy. This ... Read more

Before I start the blog today I want to thank those of you who have give me such encouraging comments. I am actually doing this blog to develop the discipline of keeping a journal. Tracking food wasn't working for me and I've never been good at ... Read more
Salad Days
Tuesday, May 10, 2016      3 comments

I sent someone a goodie today and jokingly said "These are my Salad Days. I say this because I have to be focused on getting my raw veggies and fruits in and avoiding high fat, non-nutritious foods. The term "Salad Days" refers to youth an... Read more

I'm so glad I was able to today. With the treatment I had on Friday I wasn't sure how I'd feel today. But it was good and I only had to back off out of one position to protect my knee. And today was a good day of eating for me as ... Read more
Grrr - Wake up Call
Sunday, May 08, 2016      1 comments

I've done really well with activity but have been struggling with my eating. The result is that I haven't lost despite my hard work. The real wake up call is the results of my bloodwork. While it is not real bad, there are numbers I want to... Read more

Fatigue today
Wednesday, May 04, 2016      1 comments

I really pushed myself the last few days and it all crashed home today. Nothing bad, just fatigue. I slept in and then went to the pool. I didn't get much done, mostly just "cycling" in the deep end of the therapy pool for around 25 minutes... Read more
