April 2014: REBOOT

After 4 years of being on SparkPeople, I've lost 23 pounds and gained 23 pounds. How did that happen? So glad you asked. I quit doing the things that work, like tracking, exercising, making good food choices, drinking a lot of water and participating on my teams. This year I plan to rectify all that.

So. I've re-read the info on how to use this site. My goals have been updated and I think they are reachable. I've entered new info on my fitness tracker. I'm looking into new ...

So. I've re-read the info on how to use this site. My goals have been updated and I think they are reachable. I've entered new info on my fitness tracker. I'm looking into new teams to help me reach my goals.

Today I went for a walk early in the morning. It was so peaceful and refreshing. This afternoon I worked in the yard for an hour with my dad. I had forgotten how good it felt to move. Did you know that it's easier to drink water after working out and sweating? It's the simple things, right?

Thanks for stopping by. Please, before you go, leave a bit of wisdom on my page - a hint, a trick, an easier way to accomplish a goal, some positive thoughts, a little motivation. Whatever you have that's working for you, I'd love to know about it.

By Herb Caen:

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.

Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.

It doesn't matter if you're a lion or a gazelle, when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.


I've had this quote on here for a long time. This is what it means to me: It doesn't matter what our station in life is. We better be living it to the best of our ability. Here's to us!

thanks for the goodie. Sorry you didn't get anything from the caretakers team. They got active for a bit, then quit. It is just such a tough subject to deal with. I'm co-leader on a pretty active team and spend most of my sparktime there and tracking my exercise.

Hey Girlie,

You getting any of that snow coming this way tonight?? It was nice while it lasted, wasn't it? Good thing I don't put my snow shovel away till June. Someone said the Farmer's Almanac predicted a snow storm on Easter. I guess they weren't too far off. Maybe you'll get to rev up that machine one more time before you put it up on blocks. Take care!!

Joan...getting out my mittens and boots as we speak....
