Wichita, Kansas -- Who Knew?
Wednesday, August 07, 2013      20 comments

The reason I LOVE to travel is discovering hidden gems where you would least expect them. When I planned this trip, Wichita was about 8 hours from home so would make a good stopping place. As I researched I found a museum called "The Museu... Read more
July Results, August Goals
Thursday, August 01, 2013      17 comments

I stumbled in the beginning of July; we had just gotten back from our trip and then my birthday and our anniversary derailed me for a hot minute. But once that was over, I really got down to business. July was good to me: I lost the 8 pou... Read more
"Take That, Coach Nicole!" ;-)
Wednesday, July 31, 2013      17 comments

I LOVE Coach Nicole. She seems so sweet and has told some cute stories on the SparkCoach videos. But when I got my weekly Fitbit report yesterday, I just had to give myself and Sparkfriend Marilyn a WOO HOO! See why! ... Read more

AJDOVER1 made a comment on my blog yesterday that caused an "aha" moment for me! She said: "It's so easy to lump the week before and the week after into vacation time and give up any attempt at healthy habits." How did she know that's... Read more
Challenging Week Ahead
Tuesday, July 30, 2013      15 comments

We will be leaving for Colorado on Monday morning, so we have a lot of odds and ends to tie up this week. We will be putting our fitness center membership on hold for the month of August so tomorrow will be my last class. ... Read more
"You are Stronger than You Think"
Sunday, July 28, 2013      19 comments

That's what my former-coach husband told me today. Wow! We walked a mile. Then did Week 3, Day 1 of the 5K101 program. (jog 3 minutes, walk 2. Easy-peasy!) Then we did intervals: two minutes of jogging, one minute of walking. We ... Read more
How did I Do This Week?
Saturday, July 27, 2013      11 comments

How did I do with my goals? Generally well, but NOT completely well! Goal: attend the fitness center each weekday morning and do my best to do 7 classes. (Back-to-back classes on Monday and Friday.) ... Read more
I Eyed the Pie
Thursday, July 25, 2013      15 comments

My husband always grocery shops with me "in self defense", he says. It's because I don't buy junk food! He bought a cherry pie today (and ice cream and Pringles, but that's another story). We got home later than planned and I was Hungry! ... Read more
Which SparkFriend Said It?
Wednesday, July 24, 2013      13 comments

I have been driving myself nuts trying to find where I saw this! It was someone's reply to someone else's blog. The blog was about how the writer wasn't sure she wanted to restrict her calorie intake for the rest of her life. This Sparkfr... Read more
Planning a Great Week
Monday, July 22, 2013      11 comments

Yesterday was a rest day so I only did my "5K 101" intervals. I spent the day lollygagging in the air conditioning, watching cooking shows on Amazon Prime (not the smartest move)! I ate at the high end of my calorie range and had a high-sodium... Read more
Perking Along...and a Question
Saturday, July 20, 2013      8 comments

TC and I walked up Mt. Nebo this morning. Lots of people do it; park at the bottom and walk up the road (with lots of switchbacks) to the top. It's 1,800 feet elevation gain in 2.5 miles. About halfway up I was falling behind and was really l... Read more
Happy Hump Day!
Wednesday, July 17, 2013      11 comments

I was dragging this morning but I got up and was on the treadmill at 6:15 a.m., and then went into town for step class at the fitness center. OH BABY, that class just wears me out! I stuck through the whole 75 minutes and don't know if I'll do ... Read more
Looking forward to a great week!

Last Friday was my birthday and TC had quite the little celebration planned, which was really nice but NOT low-calorie. ... Read more

BLW originally alluded to the change, which I had not heard about. She posted a blog entry yesterday with the link to the Spark announcement: www.sparkpeople.com/mypa

Getting Stronger
Wednesday, July 10, 2013      14 comments

A body in motion tends to stay in motion....right? Absolutely! I'm on Day 5 of my reset program. I've tracked all my food. I've gotten in 15,000 steps each day (even if it means marching in place before bed). I'm back at the fitness... Read more
