    10/17/2019 3:36:11 PM, by MAW_OH

    Good Afternoon Sparkpeople!! I am in the process of regaining use of my left arm after the fall that broke not only my rotator cuff but also wiped out my HSA - and then some. Therapy x2 a week with arm exercises 2-3 x a day. I struggle with sleeping in a recliner - and will soon try a big foam w... Read more

  • Away

    10/12/2019 5:48:56 PM, by AAAACK

    Ok... I've been away for a while, and will continue to be away for a while longer. I'm facing some life and health challenges, and just trying to manage everything. I think of so many of you on a daily basis! And I hope you're doing well. Still, I plan to return at some point. Maybe it'l... Read more

  • Out And About And Home A Wee Bit…

    10/8/2019 10:40:37 PM, by KOHLRABIGIRL

    Drove my oldest two daughters to work and school. Homeschooled briefly. Drove D15 to chemistry & finance co-op classes…D12 took a walk on the hike/bike trail with me during that time. We spotted lots of wooly bears. Then the two of us visited the library...she read and I worked on a puzzle... Read more

  • Things I Miss Since joining SP 11 years ago

    10/8/2019 3:52:32 PM, by 2BTHINMAMMA

    I just realized that it has been over 8 years since I last wrote a blog and 11 years last month since I joined SparkPeople! That got me thinking about the changes that have taken place over those years in my life and here on SparkPeople. I admit I miss parts of my "old" life and the "old" SP. W... Read more

  • Monarchs And A Requiem…

    10/7/2019 11:49:22 PM, by KOHLRABIGIRL

    My dad gifted us with caterpillars on milkweed plants a few weeks back when he was preparing his yard for fall. We watched them eat the leaves, hang in j-shapes, and form chrysalises. Those Monarchs broke out overnight. We did not get to see them drying their wings as they were already fluttering th... Read more

  • Goal Assessment…

    10/5/2019 8:49:36 PM, by KOHLRABIGIRL

    Met many of my nutrition goals this week.

  • Trash Or Treasure?

    10/4/2019 11:20:05 PM, by KOHLRABIGIRL

    Trash as far as I’m concerned. How about for you? Came across this on my 2 mile neighborhood walk this afternoon. What’s the story? I think Alfred was running late this morning and was brushing his teeth while standing at the corner waiting for his ride to come when he spotted ... Read more

  • Another Day That Improved...

    10/1/2019 11:46:45 PM, by KOHLRABIGIRL

    Put a load of laundry 346 in the washer and noticed the laundry baskets were empty. When does that ever happen (Remember the laundry pile is named Mount Never Rest for a reason.)? So I took it upon myself to wipe out the laundry baskets and wipe down the laundry table, washer, and dryer. All before... Read more

  • My Macro & Micro Nutrition Goals…

    9/30/2019 10:37:45 PM, by KOHLRABIGIRL

    Sometimes when we set up goals we don’t allow for life. Today my sodium went above range because I didn’t plan well. That’s a lesson that hopefully I learn from. Consistency is key so meeting these goals 5x weekly seems doable while not requiring perfection. I met 8:9 of these today and feel that is... Read more

  • My DASH Goals...

  • Harvesting, grading, and square dancing (watching it that is)...

    9/28/2019 11:39:15 PM, by KOHLRABIGIRL

    Meant to get outside and get the yard looking totally awesome today but the heat & humidity did us in early on. I did harvest some curly kale and crisped it up in a pan with a swirl of olive for lunch. Spent the afternoon sorting homeschooling books to keep, give, and sell. Also worked on grad... Read more

  • Splat!

    9/28/2019 2:23:15 PM, by CUJINA

    I was doing so well yesterday, but I think part of me saw it coming. Family came over, drinks were served, more drinks, shots, then Arby's and pepperoni beef sticks. I feel guilty. I logged it all though, so I can see what it looks like. 3200 calories, one day. More than double what I wanted. ... Read more

  • My Day Got Better...

    9/27/2019 6:00:06 PM, by KOHLRABIGIRL

    Got off to a late and stressful start today but listening to the La La land soundtrack helped me return to baseline quickly so I could get on with another family focused day. We somehow managed to get a full day of homeschooling done despite the late start; Bible, grammar, general science/chemistry,... Read more

  • Embracing my little steps

    9/27/2019 11:43:06 AM, by CUJINA

    Some people blog to be inspirational. I'll probably complain some days. I'm eating way more than I have in years. But, my calorie count is under 1500. Healthier versions, vegetables, eating every few hours. Yet, I still feel hungry a lot. I feel less hungry when I starve. Eating some, but not ... Read more
