I haven't bogged in a long time. I'm hoping it will help me reach my goals. I'm finding out I'm not the only one having problems with migraines & other aches & pains. It seems this bitter cold & snow is not condusive to good health. I just have to hang in there & know this, too, will pass.
I did decent at bowling last night. I got a 115, 96, 90 which means I will maintain my average of 105. I have a lot of fun & get lots of laughs.

Blog from chapter oneof The Spark!

Friday, July 06, 2012

There is one thing that stood out for me in this chapter that I finally understand after 2 years of being in Sparkpeople. I never understood how to do a vision collage to reach my goals. I do have some goals I want to reach besides just weight loss & this would help me with that as well. It would help me organize(hopefully) & show the naysayers that I'm not crazy& that I can do it!

    It helps to search on SP for vision collage. See what others have done to help you plan a format. Chris

Exercise & weight loss.

Sunday, December 18, 2011

I began exercising 3 times a week in July of 2009. I gradually added minutes & days up from there. My health improved for the 1st 6 months, but I didn't lose any weight. I have maintained those improvements & added more improvements since then. After I joined SP in January of 2010, I increased the amount of time I spent exercising, especially in the summertime. Even now, I feel restless, if I don't exercise at least a little bit each day. Only one problem-my weight has gone up instead of down, especially this fall when I've been so depressed. The depression is getting better. I'm enjoyng things that I used to enjoy again. I'm even thinking about getting back into my sewing again.
Back to the exercise thing- Exercise has improved my strength and stamina. When I 1st started, I could only stand & work for 20 minutes & then sit down to rest. Now I can work for 1.5 to 2 hours before I need to sit. In the summer I can work longer than the winter. That's how fibromyalgia is. So, for me exercise has been worth it, even if I haven't lost the weight yet. Maybe next year?!

    Good way to keep your chin up and recognize the benefits of living healthier and fitter even when the scale is a "big meanie".

    So glad that things are going well for you. I am so sorry that you have fibromyalgia. That is a very difficult disease. How great that your exercise program is working for you. Keep it up!!

Easter Sunday, April 24, 2011

Sunday, April 24, 2011

This has been a long week. Itseems, every night I dropped the dental floss into the sink. I fell down the stairs on Thursday evening while doing laundry. I don't know how many times I bumped my arms on things including my husband. I also bumped my head on him once & I think that's what started all of this mess. I haven't been able to get much done because I'm disorganized. I was soo glad to see the sun today! It seemed to help a little.
We had a wonderful Easter service at church today. I got lots of compliments on my clothes. That made me feel better too. We had breakfast before the service & they ate all of my banana bread. It was nice & moist.
After church we went to my Mom's & had dinner. There were 11 of us. It was fun until the kids got wild. Lily is going to be tested for ADD this summer. Her Daddy has it so she probably comes by it naturally. Several people in the family have it. She was only 2 pounds 10 ounces when she was born. So, if that's all she has, she's doing well.
I got off on a trail. We had mostly healthy food for dinner except birthday cake for Jeremy. He's 26 today. I ate a little bit too much of it. Oh well, I will do better tomorrow. There's no more cake, or cookies, or candy, in my house.

    Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. are really tough food-wise aren't they? I know that I had a problem today too... Not too much overboard, but still.... Thank goodness I went for a run today before church, otherwise I'd REALLY feel guilty! Have a good week, and focus on getting after it!!!

I Made It Through the Weekend

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

I started out the weekend going to lunch at Perkins with the "Rose" women to celebrate my Mom's birthday.(I won't say how old she was.) I had a somewhat healthy main dish with a diet drink and lots of water. I wanted a desert, but they didn't come with prices, so I passed. At the checkout, I saw some yummy brownies. So, I bought one & shared it with my skinny husband. He loved that.
After eating, I hit the mall & walked constantly except for one small stop for a few seconds. I walked foe 35 minutes quicly & worked up a sweat. At the end, I got my SIL a birthday present, since his birthday is on Easter. All these birthdays could break my bank account! LOL ! When I get to the parking lot, the parking break light on my truck doesn't go off! I never put the parking break on!So I try a few things around the parking lot & there's too much drag to take it on the highway home. So, I call my wonderful hubby & he says "I wonder if it's low in fluid". Since it's raining hard & cold, he drives the clunker to help me & brings me some fluid. Sure enough, It works! We go grocery shopping together with the 2 vehicles & get home about 8 pm for supper. Good thing we had somethings to cook quickly.
