  • No waffles

    11/27/2015 8:01:53 PM, by MOBYCARP

My plan was to run 5 easy miles, have a controlled portion of a waffle with maple syrup, and see whether... Read more

    The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing. Psalm 34:10 Why do you think the psalmist specifies "young" lions? It is for the same reason that Isaiah writes, "even the youths shall faint and be weary" (40:30). There is a vitality and stren... Read more

    Inspired by another spark blog, I bravely faced my fridge yesterday. We've all done it. Bought some ingredient we planned to use as we put together a fabulous healthy recipe. And then, we default back to the routine. The lonely ingredient sits in the back of the fridge, creating a life of its own. S... Read more

  • Weights for Lunch

    11/17/2015 3:11:10 PM, by UMDAWG04

    This past summer, I was consistent with my weight training circuit 3-4x's a week, and I really felt like it helped me. While some areas were sort of stuck in a rut (i.e. my shoulders, my quads, etc.), I was stoked every time I was able to move up in weight (yay, back and legs!). Once school s... Read more

  • It's not the downs that matter, it's the why

    11/17/2015 1:25:22 PM, by STEPHM-ARATHON

    After so many years here, I have learned this. Ups and downs happen. My weight never stays the same. Momentum is never a constant. I try not to panic in bad spots. I do reflect, and that's usually easier to do at the end of a bad period. I have been quiet on Spark. I don't know if I'm at the "... Read more

  • food experiment: changing how I eat (again lol) :D

    11/17/2015 11:50:33 AM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Just a short one today. I have been slipping into some old familiar eating habits. Bad eating habits. Less protein, more sugar and carbs. Then I freak out and eat very low calorie, the bottom of my range to make up for it. This is so bad for my body and I know it. I will never build muscle this way.... Read more

    11/17/2015 9:30:49 AM, by WINACHST

    I found a cookbook, "Smart Muffins" , at one of the library book bag sales.

The author, Jane Kinderlehrer, writes a bit about sugar in the beginning. She state... Read more

Even the disciples, who had watched Jesus touch lepers and heal cripples and eat with sinners, were unprepared for this parting command and example. Pet... Read more
