The First Three Bites...(no, not about vampires)
Wednesday, September 30, 2009      4 comments

I recently read a short blurb somewhere that the first three bites are said to be the ones that bring the most satisfaction when eating something yummy. That made me think about noticing how that can work in my favor. Then I realized that I ra... Read more

As my first year of healthy eating and regular exercise draws closer on the October 13 anniversary date, I look at my role model's photo on my SP photo page. Ernestine Shepherd is a 72-year-old fitness trainer, and in AMAZING shape. She glows ... Read more
Shocked By the Numbers - Again!
Monday, September 28, 2009      7 comments

The first time I got on the scale, at the start of this healthier eating adventure in October '08, I was shocked. I'd never weighed myself and didn't own a scale. I was a person who never gained weight. But during these past few years, things... Read more

The Huge Importance of Breakfast
Saturday, September 26, 2009      9 comments

Before I started eating healthier last October, I rarely ate breakfast. It was another one of those great lifelong habits that caught up with me and eventually bit me in the butt. As a kid, mom would preach about the importance of breakfast an... Read more
Still Battling the Night Munchies
Friday, September 25, 2009      3 comments

This has been my biggest challenge during this year of healthier eating. It's such a lifelong habit, that it takes a million tons of willpower to resist. I'm doing better, and I've tried every trick in the book. Now I just let myself eat some... Read more
Maybe This Isn't a Plateau, But a Final Destination??? Yikes!
Thursday, September 24, 2009      6 comments

Yesterday, I read that if you've been on a plateau for a long time, that it may be that's where your body will stay! I am completely blown away by that, as the thought had crossed my mind before. However, if I believe that, I'll stop working t... Read more
Catching Up W/ The Bad Girl Pounds Gained in August
Wednesday, September 23, 2009      3 comments

Yes, by now I've blogged the topic to death about my boo-hoo month of failure in August. Which was devastating for me because it was the first time in 11 months that I didn't adhere to a near-perfect path of healthy eating. But I learned a lot... Read more
8 Months on SP-Thank you, SparkGuy!
Tuesday, September 22, 2009      3 comments

I celebrated today by sending Chris, the Sparkguy, a thank you goodie. And I try to give back by buying SP items when I can, and spreading the SP when I go out by wearing my SP shirt. I really appreciate all that this site has done for me in h... Read more
Trampoline Jumping -Then and Now
Monday, September 21, 2009      3 comments

A few months ago, I got a mini-trampoline. I'd had one in the past that I enjoyed so much, that I thought I'd reproduce the experience. Had to smile yesterday as I finally got on it. As I jumped, parts of my body bounced to a different rhythm... Read more
Coming Up on My 1-Year Anniversary (almost) of Healthy Eating/Lifestyle Change-Reflection #1
Sunday, September 20, 2009      5 comments

Okay, so it's not October 13 yet. But the way this year is evaporating, it'll be here in no time. I used Columbus Day '08 to embark on my new adventure as Columbus did - what has been a year of good (great) eating, more exercise, and learning... Read more
Anyone Else Having Trouble Getting SP points?
Saturday, September 19, 2009      7 comments

This is frustrating. Some categories require 2-4 clicks before the points register. Others do not give me points at all. This has gone on for a few weeks now. Anyone else having trouble with this?... Read more
Done Whining. Back on the Horse for the Victory Ride.
Friday, September 18, 2009      8 comments

I'm not normally a whiner, but wow, that's all I've done lately. Yesterday, after asking for support, I received so many great reminders, good advice, and kind support. Something snapped (in a good way) inside my head and I just got sick of my... Read more
Bad Attitude Leads to Terrible Talk Leads to Falling Off for Good?
Thursday, September 17, 2009      13 comments

I haven't fallen off the wagon. Still eating healthy despite this current bad attitude. But I have to admit that I am right on the edge. It's like I'm some sort of big immature child who is rebelling against all of the people I'm losing in my... Read more
Commitment at an All-time Low
Wednesday, September 16, 2009      9 comments

Have to admit that I'm in the slump area again. Got on the scale yesterday, after a terrible August, and am pretty disgusted. I had a perfect record for 10 months and blew it in the 11th month. Will have to get back on the proverbial horse an... Read more
