I'm listening to Biggest Looser in the background. It is less annoying to just listen instead of watching it. I'm thankful to be in the real world, owning my choices, rejoicing in the freedom of real life, constantly reminded that there is less ... Read more

Psalm 119:73 "You made me; You created me.Now give me the sense to follow Your commands." The difference between Spark and all those other diet/non-diets I've been on and I don't know how long it would take to count that high.........is th... Read more

It is always a treat to wake up here at the beach. I walked one poochie this morning. Thoughts of islands and Jesus: I can walk in less than 2 minutes from the wildness of the ocean to the quiet of the sound since this is a skinny isl... Read more
Supersize Me

I just finished watching Supersize Me on the computer. Wow! I couldn't believe how awful all his labs got after one month of eating 3 squares/day at McDonalds. And then it took him a year to get all the weight off again. Good grief. Horrible. Wh... Read more

Walked with the dogs with hubby to the golden arches. I got an icecream cone after reading the article here at spark about it having 45 calories. Well, I think they gave me a standard cone so after 4 really good licks I gave the rest to the dogs... Read more

What's new with me......... since I've tripled my calcium my fingernails are stronger. Didn't expect that! I tried on a jacket I bought a couple of years ago. A couple of months ago I couldn't even get the zipper together. Today the zippe... Read more

So I overslept this morning and didn't get on the trail until 7:30. I did a short walk with the dogs and friends and then got back out for my serious jog/walk. Oh boy, my legs are a mess. It's funny because I just read a spark email about feelin... Read more

Several fun things. Last night a Bible study we were in a new group. I heard the ladies talking about Spark across the table. OOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo! I chimed in. We "shared the Spark!" That was a first! So today I hired someone to fill in ... Read more

Here I'm getting stronger every day, my clothes are fitting better, I know my heart and blood vessels must be healthier (blood pressure is consistently falling) and then I get wrapped up in not losing 2 pounds this week. Good grief, girl! This i... Read more

Me as a truck.
Monday, March 22, 2010      1 comments

Jogging along looking at traffic this morning made me think about the wonders of the automobile. How to ruin a truck? Put contaminated fuel in the tank, never change the oil or add antifreeze, and load the bed with far more than it can hold. Wel... Read more

Early church and then out to a fairly new cajun restaurant. I had crawfish remoulade on fried green tomatoes, and then split an eggs benedict on crab cakes with dh. Plus drank cup after cup of coffee with chickory. You know what? Not one ounce o... Read more

Went in for my recheck and took MY blood pressure cuff with me, along with all the recorded BPs from the past month as she had asked me to do. Here I'd been running along at around 123/78 or there abouts. First the nurse took it-144/92! YIKES! a... Read more

Profound frustration.............
Wednesday, March 17, 2010      2 comments

I need to slow down. I'm enjoying these changes so much and want the days and weeks to fly by so I can get to my goals. Whoa, nelly. Days are to be savored and used up, one at a time. I have to metaphorically slap myself awake, as in back to ... Read more
