January Jumpstart
Friday, January 06, 2012      5 comments

I'm glad I decided to join the Jumpstart challenge, even though I started a couple days late. I have to get up a few minutes earlier in the mornings to get the videos done, but I'm enjoying them -- I felt like I was in a rut on my s/t, and thes... Read more

Okay, so it wasn't the lottery, but yesterday I was puzzled to see a box left at my door when I got home from work. I thought it must be a Christmas gift I'd ordered late and forgotten about. Then I saw that the address on the return label sai... Read more
One Good Decision
Friday, December 02, 2011      9 comments

There are so many temptations this time of year, which makes it easy to overeat and/or binge. I LOVE chocolate! For the past two days I've resisted the candy dish in the office, and I thought I was going to make it through today, as well. But... Read more

My husband's company and their insurance company have finally figured out that it saves money to pay for preventive care! Last year they had a wellness program whereby if the employee participated in a Wellness Assessment, they would reimburse ... Read more

Today when I was in the midst of a cleaning frenzy I was going to take a lunch break and, when I opened my crisper drawer to get some veggies, I noticed there was liquid in the bottom of the fridge -- pinkish colored. Upon further investigation... Read more
Licorice and other temptations...

Today my boss gave me a bag of gourmet sour cherry licorice because I fed his cat while he was gone for the weekend. I took two pieces out and then took the rest of the bag to the back break room and put it in a cupboard, as far away from my de... Read more
Hammertoe Woes
Tuesday, September 20, 2011      3 comments

Nothing major wrong with my foot - the pain is from stressed tendons and small muscles caused by large callouses on the balls on my feet, in turn causing hammertoes, which make me walk in such a way as to stress those tendons and muscles. For n... Read more
The Agony of De-Feet!
Monday, September 19, 2011      5 comments

I may not have the world's ugliest feet, but I'm pretty sure I'm in the Top 10! I was born with a bent and crooked right foot, which caused a very high arch, and some tight muscles. I have some childhood memories of having a cast on that foot... Read more
Kale -- It Does a Body Good!
Wednesday, September 07, 2011      10 comments

One thing I’ve enjoyed since joining SparkPeople is trying new, healthy foods. A few months ago a friend of mine gave me a container of some homemade soup she’d made. There was one ingredient I couldn’t identify -- something dark green with ru... Read more
August Goals
Friday, September 02, 2011      4 comments

Extra pounds had been sneaking on, and I kept saying I needed to get them back off and get back within my maintenance range. But I never did set a SPECIFIC goal, nor did I re-set my trackers for weight loss, rather than maintenance. I did not ... Read more

As part of our 40th Class Reunion, after the potluck on Friday night we tie-dyed tee shirts. On Saturday we decorated a float for the town celebration parade on Sunday afternoon. One of my friends brought items from her daughter's vintage clo... Read more
Class Reunion
Friday, August 19, 2011      4 comments

So tonight is my 40-year class reunion. (Where does the time go??) It's going to be very casual -- just an outdoor potluck at the lake home of a classmate. The food is going to be a temptation to me, but I've decided I'm not going to drink any... Read more

I recently read a blog about the importance of balancing sodium and potassium. I had never tracked my potassium, figuring my multivitamin probably gave me what I needed. But out of curiosity, I decided to add it to my nutrition tracker. I was ... Read more
Worst Invention??
Monday, July 18, 2011      8 comments

While paging through a flyer for a home improvement store I came across an ad for a CAMOUFLAGE toilet seat. You've got to be kidding! Don't men already have a hard enough time seeing it????? Obviously not invented by a woman! ... Read more
Walking Test
Wednesday, July 13, 2011      6 comments

Today I read a SP article which outlined a fitness test for walking. The test was to walk one mile, flat surface, as fast as you could. A chart showed the ratings, based on age. I was curious how I would measure up, so off I went to our ... Read more
