Right after I posted my last blog about challenging myself I started feeling run down. End result is I had a cold. No big deal but it really wears me out. Went to the doctor and got an antibiotic and prednisone. Just a precaution so it doesn... Read more

Sunday, May 25, 2014 2 comments
Another restless night. It all works itself out and I prefer the wait to taking something to help me sleep. So, of course I've been thinking. I want to join a challenge. I joined 2 challenges earlier this month, but I was away for a week and... Read more
Now why did I go and do that?

Well, I've joined a challenge. The challenge is to lose 30 pounds by August 31st, 4 months from now. I am being tested and teased by temptation. I am doing all I can to resist. I want to have candy, pizza, beer and anything else I think of. ... Read more

So, I've recommitted to another round of weight loss. I really need Spark to keep track of what I eat and the activity I get, or don't, depending on the day. I saw an episode of Dr. Oz that inspired me. He had a two week "diet" that looke... Read more

I joined Spark several years ago and have had a good share of success. I've also had some setbacks and have been grateful for the support and motivation here. I always liked the encouragement from others and the encouragement to joi... Read more

Taking the Training Wheels Off

Yes, it's true. I've been "on my own" most of the month. I went away for a few weeks, and didn't track food or exercise. Before I left, I had blood work done. When I got the results, I was sure they confused mine with someone else. M... Read more

The light bulb may have finally come on. Don't want to jump ahead, but I feel I have learned so much from this site that I may actually be able to continue even if I didn't have Sparkpeople and continue on my way to fitness and better health. ... Read more

AAARRRGGGHHH!!! I did it again. I know better, yet I continue to do it. I do good for a spell and then the rebel in me shows up and demands equal time. Hubby had a few days off, and I took them with him. No exercise for a few days, and ate ... Read more

Well, I'm not sure that tomorrow will be quite as successful as I hoped for. We'll see. If not, that's OK... I was good the majority of the time. It will give me more incentive to reach my goals. Need to lose weight before my transplant eval... Read more
Time to Pick up the Pace!

So, my goal for this coming week is to extend the time I spend doing cardio, and expand my strength training. A one shot deal to jolt my body, and then make daily adjustments based on how I feel. Wish me luck and join me if you'd like. ... Read more
