Do You Try New Recipes Very Often?
I must admit that I don't. I've spent hours yesterday and today going through magazines, clipping decorating ideas, recipes, knitting patterns and exercises. Then I got out my recipe files - 1 envelope each for appetizers, breakfast, beef, brea... Read more
Today I Lost a Spark Friend...
... I'm so glad I found her again! As some of you know, I limit my number of Spark Friends. Probably because I think of you as penpals, and want to keep the number low so that I can keep in touch with you regularly. I may never meet any of yo... Read more
Do you really believe...
that you can reach the goal weight you set for yourself?
That's one of the questions in an article I read yesterday on the SP site, under the heading, Weight Loss articles. The article is called, " An Obesity Expert Tells Us What Really Wo... Read more
Bit of a Wake-Up Call
As most of you know, I've been sick for over a month, with various diagnoses ranging from a virus to bronchitis. I've been on Flovent for 2 weeks and an antibiotic for one, both prescribed by a doctor at walk-in, as I couldn't ge... Read more
Taking a fresh look at my plan
My goal weight, from the time I joined SP in 2011, has been 150 lbs. Once I actually got down to 159 point something; another time to 161... then each time I scuttled back to the comfort of the 170's.
Today I decided to rethink the proce... Read more
Ringing the Bell 1181 Times
Today is National Aboriginal Day in Canada, and after church we rang the bells 1181 times to honour the 1181 Aboriginal women murdered or missing in Canada. This number is 3-4 times the number of non-Aboriginal women murdered or missing over th... Read more
Funeral Planning Can Be Quite Interesting
Guess this means I'm finally grown up. Peter and I visited two local funeral homes this week to gather information for our (we hope long-in-the-future) funerals. We both want pretty much the same thing. Cremation, visitation one afternoon and... Read more
3 NSV's in One Week
Maybe, just maybe, it's starting to sink in.
I've had 3 food-related successes this past week, and I'm feeling very proud.
Peter likes fast food, and brings it home a couple of times each week. It's a challenge. If I know ahead of ... Read more
Reminder to self... never add an emoticon at the end of a blog. It makes them disappear.
I just wrote an amusing (to me, anyway), blog about getting things ready for a sale at church... I've rented a table and am trying to get rid of some stuff... but when I tried to add an emoticon, it disappeared.
So... I'll write after the... Read more
Mid-May, and I'm Not Where I Planned To Be...
and that's because I made a realistic plan but didn't follow it consistently.
- I didn't start another long-distance walk on the treadmill after completing my hike from Land's End, Cornwall, to John O'Groats Scotland
- I didn't consistently ... Read more
Time to Regroup
I've been struggling since November, and have regained some of the weight I worked so hard to lose last year.
I think that part of the problem is that I am especially busy in the winter, particularly with church activities. First there's... Read more
Woo Hoo! I'm an Hourglass
Hourglass - top and bottom equal, middle narrows in... only problem is, I'm sure there is supposed to be more narrowing...
I joined a 90-day challenge started by my friend PIXIE-LICIOUS (check out her Spark Page, she's a great Spark Friend,... Read more
Thank you to 2 great Spark Friends
Two of my Spark Friends stepped up to help when I asked for a buddy to help me get back on the straight and narrow. A great big "thank you". Thanks, also, to several others who weren't in the position to be my buddies, but who wrote very suppo... Read more
I need a special Spark buddy to help me get back on track
I really messed up over the holidays... well really for the past 8 weeks... and I hope that one of my Spark Friends will step up to help me get back on track.
No point going into the reasons I messed up, I'm sure some of you would recognize... Read more
Planning for Dinner Out
Tonight we are going to the Christmas party for one of Peter's pipe bands. They hold it at The Keg, and I've been spending the last hour going over their menu, checking the nutritional values, and trying to plan what I will choose. To make it ... Read more
