Got my new Spark tracker set up today. Didn't get any exercise points, as I didn't manage 10 consecutive minutes with all the walking I did. This will take some getting used to, but I feel it's a huge step in the right direction.
Today is day 19 of the 21-day no added sugar or salt challenge. (Another part of the challenge had to do with exercise, but that is a different blog...) Anyhow, I'm almost done with the 3 weeks, and 2 thoughts occur to me.
#1: I did better ... Read more
WEC 6-week check-up
Well, the WEC challenge is almost half over. What, if anything, have I learned this round?
I've learned that life goes on, it doesn't stop for me. This has been a tough year, already tougher than last year. Yet meals still have to be made, ... Read more
Oh, no... change!
I don't do change well. I never have been the type of person who can just let sudden changes roll off her back, and I'm probably getting worse with age. Part of it is my really lousy memory; things have to go where they belong or I can't find th... Read more
Good morning, everyone! Hope you all had a great time last night, without overdoing it... We had a very fun time at the potluck supper/game night. Then we had a short reflection service, and the question asked was: what will you do this year tha... Read more
This past year has been a tough one for us. Many health issues, some family problems, and my sister's house burned down. There have been many times when I have thought that if it weren't for Sparkpeople, I would just give up and go back to the o... Read more
So the format on the SP start page has changed again. Maybe good, maybe bad, but forever moving in a new area. One of the things that keeps catching my eye with the new format is that it tells me every time how many consecutive days of exercise ... Read more
Biggest loser or biggest winner? You make the choice.
I've been a part of The Biggest Loser Challenges for quite a while now. And I have to say that it has made all the difference in my life, how I look at myself, why I eat the way I do... ... Read more
Tools and resources
I think that Sparkpeople has given me many tools and resources for my long and rocky journey towards a slimmer me. Also towards a healthier me, which is really what I'm after.
But I think the best tool has been the SP teams I've been on, ma... Read more
WEC challenge 11/1
I'd say the time I showed the most strength, mentally and physically, was when I had stitches without anesthesia. I had had some reconstructive surgery done, but being the type of person I am, and considering where the surgery site was, I found ... Read more
Well, this WEC was about choosing our own road to success. A lot has been going on this weekend, this month, this entire season. And I may not have been paying as much attention to my food and exercise as I should. But this challenge has given m... Read more
Well, what can I say: these interim weeks could have gone better, but they could have gone much worse, too. It's been stressful, and I spent a lot of time eating my feelings. (Hey, I really like that expression, which I just heard today...) But ... Read more
My small goal for the month of September is to get my eating back on track. Notice I said back on track, and didn't choose to say I will control my eating. Good intake is not something to be wrestled to the ground, like a wild animal, something ... Read more
Well, it's been a different sort of day here. Back to work after more than 2 weeks off for vacation. Had to do a route, which I did slowly so I didn't mess up my knee again. Waiting for Ed to get home because we're supposed to help buy the dry w... Read more
Everything I've learned the past year? It can all be put down to a few words: I'm stronger than I think I am. And I can almost always push myself a little bit more.
I've had a tough year... my mom died, my cat died, I've gotten older, my yo... Read more
