Tuesday, May 21, 2013      0 comments

The Hunger Games

As I wrote that title, I was thinking ... Hmmm ... how appropriate sometimes. But I digress. I looked at the Insider today and there were images with motivational quotes, many, many of them. I found an image on a member's blog one day that I m... Read more

Every morning I log onto the computer to visit SparkPeople and get my SparkPoints. If my login spin is good, I don't have to do so many of the other activities, but I do them anyway because it is a great way to get information and keep me out of... Read more

ApplePieDreams posted a really cute comment on my blog yesterday. The blog was titled Waffling and she posted that waffling is better than pancaking. I definitely agree. And yesterday, I almost pancaked in terms of my dedication to getting throu... Read more

How much control do I really have?
Wednesday, December 07, 2011      2 comments

For the last 20 years or so, I have weighed the exact same, give or take 10 pounds (get up there, work to lose it, lose it, get up there again). And in the last 20 years, I have logged a ton of exercise minutes and miles (ran half-marathons, rac... Read more
Day 2 of the Honeymoon
Tuesday, December 06, 2011      2 comments

It's funny, it doesn't feel like the honeymoon phase. It feels more like the "been there done that" phase. That is true, I have been here and done this before and it worked. So if the proof is in the pudding as the old saying goes, why is it sti... Read more

Monday, December 05, 2011      3 comments

I joined SparkPeople in April 2011. At first, it was new and exciting; I was in the honeymoon stage of my relationship with SP. That lasted a month, month and a half. In that month or so, I lost 10 pounds and considered that a wonderful thing. ... Read more

I became a serious cyclist in 2000 when I bought a Trek 1000 and joined Team in Training to cycle my first century, Tucson. I didn't finish Tucson that year, but I did finish two times after that first year. After awhile, my need for new and e... Read more
Experiment Abandoned - Reality Check
Saturday, June 18, 2011      4 comments

I had to abandon the experiment; well, let's be honest, I didn't have to, I chose to abandon the experiment due to the illness. Just didn't feel like shopping for the right foods, cooking the right foods or eating the right foods. I think next t... Read more
