Monthly Rotation?
Monday, October 25, 2010      0 comments

I was reading a review of a Spark Recipe and the reviewer said she liked the recipe so much, she was going to add it to her monthly rotation. I should have emailed her to ask her how to set up a monthly rotation of menus, but I didn't, and now I... Read more

It all started when I weighed myself this morning. I had gained two pounds. Then I started getting depressed. I'm worried about my finances. I'm behind on a lot of bills, and I want to go to Florida in December to visit my dad, who is in fa... Read more

At the beginning of this month, I went back to the Fast Break Start. I blogged that I was back and I was going to show my daughter-in-law, who had made fun of me for re-gaining 10 pounds and warned that they wouldn't let me sit on their couch if... Read more

Yesterday I had a bad day. I bought a new Droid phone last week (which I LOVE) but I was getting ready to send in my rebate form and I realized I had thrown out the box the phone came in! So, no rebate...lost $100. And then the chow-down be... Read more

I just posted this to a friend on the "Eating Because You're Bored" Team. She had been away from Spark for awhile and was feeling bad. I thought I'd like to share this with anyone else who might have been slipping a little. I kind of drif... Read more

I've regained10 pounds, and I need to act NOW. I refuse to beat myself up (much) but I know I have to take action before it gets really bad. When I lost my first 10 pounds, I considered that a real accomplishment, so I can't just say "it's only1... Read more

My one year Sparkiversary is coming up in a couple of weeks. I probably should wait until then to post this, but my heart is so overflowing with thankfulness, I can't wait. Since I joined SparkPeople last year, there have been so many changes in... Read more

I finally made my first goal - down 60 pounds! That last 5 pounds was really stubborn, I think because I was "relaxing" too much on the weekends. So I'm determined to get tougher. Instead of celebrating this weekend by indulging in my favorite p... Read more

It's a rainy Friday, and I'm not sure if I'll be able to do my daily walk. But hey, it's Oregon - we Oregonians don't let a little thing like rain keep us indoors! Yesterday, after my first workout at Curves, the Curves lady told me that I... Read more

Imagine that, raining in Oregon! Haha, after living in Oregon for 19 years, I've grown to like the rain, and it really doesn't rain as often as people think. You hear it rains every day, but even when it does, it doesn't rain ALL day, so you can... Read more

I have an Internet friend who sends me songs in the form of WAVs and this weekend, he sent me a bunch of Beatles songs. It was so cool, the day was beautiful, and I walked along singing along (under my breath, I hope - I'm not really a singer.) ... Read more
