Returning to the basics...

Last week I decided to go back to faithfully weighing, measuring and tracking my food. I also committed to trying for 10K steps 6 days a week. Tracking works for me. It helps me realize how much and how often I'm eating which is necessary because I've been an unmindful consumer of food for decades.

I tried an experiment of just making better choices etc. That did not work so I pulled out the food scales, loaded the app in my smartphone and I'm already seeing results.

Stay tuned...


Just 3 weeks ago I turned sixty! I can remember as a child thinking that was REALLY old. While my body definitely shows signs of wear and tear INSIDE I feel pretty much as I always have.

I've been very distracted this past year with house construction, moving, my mother's health decline and responsibilities outside the home. Now I'm going to make some time for myself. I've set a goal to lose 38 pounds this year.

Here's to a great 2016!

Pressing On!

Welcome back to Spark! You haven't blogged in awhile and I really enjoyed your birthday list. I need to do the same; it will be fun crossing those items off and seeing if you can complete the list.
I think you can! emoticon
