Well, the big day has come, one that I have worked towards for so long. I'm down fifty pounds... and scared as heck. "Scared?", you say. "Why should she be scared? Fifty pounds gone should be something to celebrate, something to be happy about..... Read more
My all-time fave has got to be boxing. I never thought I'd like something so 'manly' and so 'violent', but all the moving and punching has been really good for me. So good, in fact, that I can only do it once a week. It's very draining and conti... Read more
One of the bigger changes that I've seen in the past year is that I'm spreading my wings a bit more. Right now I'm in the middle of one of the suggested SP challenges, how to break a plateau. I'm also monitoring my excess sugar... I've hit the 2... Read more
Those in the know, know that I do the Biggest Loser Challenge, and Wednesday is the official weigh-in day. For many of us, myself included, this is a day to be faced with uncertainty, sometimes with fear, as we look back at the previous week and... Read more
Boxing is the best exercise I've ever tried! Not too hard on my knees, and it really gets me moving! Thanks, Charles!
Biggest Loser Challenge 28 is about to start, and I'm so excited! Hey, that could be a song ~ maybe I could get the Pointer Sisters to sing it? Wanna join the dance party?... Read more
Cinco de Mayo NSV
A few days late, but that is because it took me a few days to realize that it happened. We had the kids over for tacos to celebrate Cinco de Mayo; served the usual array of foods: beef tacos, beans and rice, homemade guac thanks to my older chil... Read more
Today's interim challege is to blog about my success from the past year. I'd say my biggest success is that after five decades, I'm finally getting to know myself. I'm getting stronger, becoming clearer to myself and others about my wants and ne... Read more
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
