Got My Exercise!

Thursday, August 14, 2014      2 comments

It took about an hour for me to find my little dog who got off her leash this morning. I live in a rural neighborhood along a lake and she managed to get nearly a half mile away and got stuck in a swamp! A neighbor saw her and heard her barkin... Read more

Busy Days of Summer

Wednesday, August 13, 2014      2 comments

I got through 2 days of being back on track. That is a biggie for me. Yesterday was a busy one with quilting at church followed by a tour of a beautiful garden belonging to one of the Master Gardeners. She had snacks available including an a... Read more

I should have titled this starting WAY OVER since I have regained all I lost plus a little more. I got on the scale this morning and started using the meal tracker here at Spark again so I am off to a good start. I have discovered that th... Read more

Duh! It Works!

I was very successful at losing weight a few years ago by tracking my food and exercising every day. My NY resolution was to exercise at least 6 days a week for a minimum of 30 minutes and track all my food on paper since my old computer is a b... Read more

It isn't quite the new year yet, but I have been trying to stick to my resolutions. I have been using my Wii or going to Curves every day, attempting to eat only in the kitchen and sadly, not writing everything down. My old computer is so poke... Read more

Starting Over

I was shocked when I got on the scale again this morning. I have been steadily gaining weight for the last two years and I am almost back to the weight I was at when I joined TOPS! I have been eating far too much and exercising very little so ... Read more

Checking In

Tuesday, July 09, 2013      13 comments

Once I reached level 20 I did cut back on my Spark time. I have learned to include exercise in my daily activities and to track my food but my computer is getting a little old and for some reason Spark is difficult for my poor old laptop to nav... Read more

The Great Outdoors

Wednesday, June 12, 2013      5 comments

I can't ever remember a spring that arrived so late. We had a snow storm about a month ago, even before all the winter accumulation had not melted. It delayed planting my vegetable garden until last Saturday for the final things that needed to... Read more

I Should Have Saved My Money

Thursday, June 06, 2013      17 comments

While wandering through Target yesterday I saw a display of Starbucks coffee and decided that since I have heard so much about how good it is, I thought I would try some. I must say I was quite disappointed. I think that the best tasting coffe... Read more

I have been a Spark People fan for many years and within the next week I should reach level 20! I do have to admit that right now I am 9 pounds heavier than when I joined! I don't consider that a total failure. I did get to my goal and mainta... Read more

Those Bothersome Things

Wednesday, May 22, 2013      8 comments

I was a little stressed because I needed to make a vest for a great-grandson and I only had a few days to get it done. This afternoon I got busy and got it done. I suspect it may be a little large, but I made it the size his mother wanted and ... Read more

Too Little Time!

Monday, May 13, 2013      7 comments

I have so much to do outdoors and the weather is not cooperating. Tomorrow I will be busy all day working in my greenhouse and potting up some plants to bring to the Master Gardener plant sale. We have had very little warm weather so most of m... Read more

Gloomy Weather

Thursday, May 02, 2013      8 comments

The thermometer has not gotten out of the 30's all day. I will have to go tuck in the greenhouse in about an hour to help conserve heat for the night. Most years it has been warm enough at this time of May to even have some frost free nights. ... Read more
