ROTTEN BANANAS TO THE RESCUE
Yes, some people would call them rotten! I call them overripe. And when they reach that stage I slice them, put in freezer on flat tray, then make Stepf's Soft Banana Ice Cream. I love it and the strong urge for ice cream has almost disappear... Read more
Not Even A Bite
Week 2 of the Spring Challenge finds me with my tongue hanging out for something sweet, but I am living up to my statement - not even a taste of goodies this week. I always have sweets around because DH likes them. He has never smoked, never s... Read more
Goal #2, Sweets and Measuring
For the second week of our Challenge, I will continue to work on the "sweets" situation as it went quite well this week but I still treated myself to a couple of goodies that I just didn't need. As a matter of fact, I am going to say publicly ... Read more
DINNER SERVED FROM 4 TO 8
Felt like I was running a restaurant tonight! Had dinner ready at 3:45 so kids could eat when they got home from school. Two decided to swim first. Oldest (15) came just after 4 o'clock to get his dinner. Nine year old came about 5 as he was ... Read more
Not Enough Calories Today
Can you believe I did not get enough calories today?
I need to go to the kitchen and eat another half banana with some peanut butter. Or maybe a glass of milk.
Had a quiet day, kids all called, DIL cooked dinner, grandkids brought me a ro... Read more
ONE GOAL AT A TIME
Just one goal this week sounds very do-able.
I had planned to list a number of goals I want to achieve while on this challenge, but I really do like the idea of one goal per week.
And that goal is to eliminate the desire for sweets. I kno... Read more

I must say that being on these challenges has really worked for me as far as exercise is concerned. I used to be content with 30 to 60 minutes of daily exercise. Now I really strive for 90 - 120 most days of the week. And my weight is finally ge... Read more

Feeling Good About My Efforts
Yes, I am feeling good about SP, the Challenge, Team A, and the way my food and exercise program are going! Today I had to hustle to get 115 minutes of exercise completed but I did it. Almost had a vegetarian day, but the leftover rice and bla... Read more
I'm doing it!!!
A short and sweet blog since my server was on the slow side this evening.
I feel really good about staying away from sweets, eating right and getting extra exercise. Haven't yet done the vegetarian day, but think I will tomorrow!
I'm Fighting That Urge!
It is 3:30 PM and all afternoon I have been fighting the urge to eat something sweet - you know - something I shouldn't eat! I am determined to lose weight on this challenge and keep it off. I have gained since the last challenge ended and am ... Read more
Small Goals to Start
My sister has been visiting for one month and I have gotten a little off track. I have logged my food for so long and can't believe I have not been doing it this past month.
So as a member of Team A I am to set my goals for this new challenge... Read more
Kind of Disgusting!!!
Yesterday Spark People gave us a page to go to so we could read about someone who was doing a good job on this site. And when you went there, it was set to private. Waste of my time!!!
This morning when I huddled on a team, I saw where someo... Read more
