What do you think of FitBit?

Thursday, March 19, 2015      3 comments

I'm hoping someone will see this and comment. I have lost my Spark Activity Tracker! It must have fallen off my shoe last week and I can't find it anywhere. I could replace it with another Spark Activity Tracker, but I'm thinking about gett... Read more

Addicted to chocolate?

Thursday, September 18, 2014      4 comments

I wonder if I'm addicted to chocolate. I think about it all the time. When I am upset, I want chocolate. When I am happy, I want chocolate. When I am bored, I want chocolate. When I am uncertain, I want chocolate. When I want to reward myself, I... Read more

When given the choice, don't choose like Lot

Monday, September 15, 2014      0 comments

This morning as I was reading and praying Genesis 13, God reminded me not to choose like Lot. Abram and Lot had been traveling together, and both had large herds and many possessions. Fights broke out between Abram's herders and Lot's herders. S... Read more

Learning what it means to be hungry

Thursday, July 03, 2014      0 comments

The past couple days I've been doing partial fasts. I find in doing so that it's like hitting a "restart" button for my eating habits. It wasn't too hard, especially since I drank water whenever I felt "hungry." I put "hungry" in quotation... Read more

God will transform the situation when we make the sacrifice.

Saturday, May 31, 2014      3 comments

It's all about sacrifice, isn't it? We have to give up something in order to get something. To get work done, we sacrifice time spent in leisure. We sacrifice for our children so they can have what they need. Jesus sacrificed His life for us so ... Read more

What does my craving look like? A bratty version of myself!

Thursday, April 03, 2014      2 comments

The question to ponder today is what my craving looks like. The first time I went through "Made to Crave," I think it looked like a big comfy couch, something in which to curl up and forget about the world. But now, as I am consider other studie... Read more

There is power in the name of Jesus = I made it through the day

Tuesday, April 01, 2014      5 comments

The song "Break Every Chain" has been in my head for days now, and I think I know why. God knows that I need Jesus' power to break my slavery to food. So, literally, one day at a time, I will call on the name of the Lord and walk in His victory... Read more

I hope I'm not an April Fool to re-start "Made to Crave" on April 1st!

It's been a while since I've bee an active on SparkPeople. I have been entering fitness minutes, so it's not like I've been sluggish. But my eating habits! Arrrgh! I find myself thinking about food constantly, and giving in to the desire to eat.... Read more

Must. Stop. Eating. With. Abandon!

Friday, January 03, 2014      5 comments

Some time last year I posted a blog about eating "with abandon." When will I learn? I got on the scale this morning and was not surprised to see that I had gained weight. My jeans don't fit as well as they used to, and I have resorted occa... Read more

Plank Challenge?

Sunday, December 29, 2013      4 comments

I saw this posted by someone on my facebook news feed, and wondered if it was worth doing. So I'm putting it here on this blog so I can reference it. If you know anything about it, let me know! Note: I am including the link to the Plank as... Read more

Clean eating = Weight Loss?

Saturday, October 12, 2013      8 comments

I just returned this week from a trip to Germany for my son's wedding. It was a busy, busy time of preparations--not much sight seeing this trip, except for the obvious--the Dom (Cathedral) and Rathaus (Town Hall) and castles (Burg) and the roll... Read more

Exercising at home...not so bad!

Wednesday, August 21, 2013      4 comments

I enjoy going to Planet Fitness. I really do. The staff is friendly and there are always enough cardio machines to work out on, and the strength training machines are usually available as well. But tonight I just didn't want to leave the house. ... Read more

"The Spark Solution" is pretty good so far!

Wednesday, July 24, 2013      3 comments

I hadn't thought about blogging during my adventure with "The Spark Solution" until now. I doubt I'll write every day, but I have to report that so far, things are going pretty well. I was beginning to get discouraged about weight loss. All... Read more

It's not "just like starting over," it IS starting over!

Friday, July 19, 2013      7 comments

Wow. I got on the scale today and found that I had gained five pounds in a month. Am I surprised? No, not at all. I allowed all the things I was doing: helping my son who lived an hour away to get his driver's license, helping that same son clea... Read more

Am I finding my inner athlete?

Tuesday, June 25, 2013      3 comments

I had the strangest experience this morning. When I woke up, my body was craving exercise! I've NEVER awakened like that before. Me? Wanting to exercise? No, NEEDING to exercise! It had been several days since I'd had a good workout, and because... Read more
