A Beautiful Me
Monday, July 09, 2012      2 comments

SP is helping me to quit dissing myself. Other sparkers have blogged about posture and I remember my mother telling me [over and over] to stand up straight. Now I'm beginning to do it because I want to, because it feels better and because I wasn... Read more

How far to go?
Saturday, July 07, 2012      1 comments

I have known that I was obese for a long time. It wasn't until I started sparking that I began to make baby steps and realize that I can beat this! So today I added strength measurements to my goals and did 11 push ups--an I'm not sure I was eve... Read more

Cleaning Out for a New Month
Thursday, July 05, 2012      4 comments

Okay, the 4th of July party is over and I'm ready to look at goals for the new month. My brother's party was great and my sis-in-law provided lots of healthy food to choose from; my bro broke out some goodies from his wine collection [yes I had ... Read more
Feelin' Good
Wednesday, July 04, 2012      7 comments

My cat woke me up early [as usual] and I decided to get up instead of roll over and go back to sleep. Remembering the holiday, I thought about how little traffic there would be on the streets at 6 AM, so I headed out on my bike to explore a new... Read more
A Day Off from Excercise
Tuesday, July 03, 2012      2 comments

Well, yesterday I walked a total of nearly an hour. And that was after riding my bike for 1/2 hour. I didn't really plan it that way, it just happened. And I had to stand waiting in a long line for 1 1/2--not good on my knees. Today I am worn ou... Read more
My Bike Is My Friend
Monday, July 02, 2012      0 comments

Not feeling very motivated to exercise today. But I need money, so I'll ride my bike to the bank a couple of miles away--4 miles round trip. That will be a good cardio. And I've begun to do squats while I brush my teeth. So 5 minutes of squ... Read more
A word about my user name
Sunday, July 01, 2012      2 comments

I'm not bragging. It's more of a challenge to live up to. Lots of people have fish symbols on their cars. But do they drive in a Christian manner? For some putting the fish symbol in the middle of the steering wheel would be more effective.... Read more
Dodged a bullet

The ladies had a pot luck lunch yesterday. Wow. I knew it would be a challenge, but I made pretty good choices. Fortunately there weren't too many gooey desserts, my great downfall. Someone was smart and brought a bowl of small apples--I immedia... Read more
Nearly Sabotaged
Saturday, June 30, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday I went to a friend's house to help her with her computer. She took me to lunch at Mimi's [Uh-oh!] and the waiter placed a menu with the special and a big photo right in front of us as soon as we sat down. [Oh no!] Since I know Judy is ... Read more
Not the day I planned
Thursday, June 28, 2012      1 comments

I had carefully planned out my day, and Thursdays are usually pretty easy days for me. I bike to Bible study, eat no more than 1 [count 'em--one!] cookie, bike home and do some housework. Today I had biked to Sylvia's house and we were chatting ... Read more
The long walk
Wednesday, June 27, 2012      3 comments

Well, not such a long walk, really. Walked for a full 30 minutes this morning [that's a first to do all at once]. Then came home and did strength training [which I've been letting slip a bit since the new fitness format on SP]. Decided to walk d... Read more
5 Days to go on 30 day challenge
Tuesday, June 26, 2012      0 comments

I challenged myself to try this for 30 days and it is a lot easier than I thought it would be. I won't hide that I'm really disappointed about not losing more pounds, but the fact that I have lost anything is a wonder. I need to remind myself th... Read more
The Search for a Scale
Monday, June 25, 2012      2 comments

I don't own a bathroom scale and really don't have room for one in my tiny place. When I started SP I went to a doctor's office where I had been seen and asked the nurse to weigh me, so I know that 238 was my weight after several days on the pro... Read more
