  • Going the wrong way

    10/20/2017 2:59:25 PM, by JOYLARK

    For the last 1.5 weeks i seem to be gaining rather than losing weight which is frustrating. I think it's partly a combination of hormonal, health issues and med side effects but it's still not the direction I want to be going in. i'm trying not to be discouraged and to remember the possible reasons ...

    I just got back from my morning walk and it was really beautiful outside; crisp with a light chill. Enough for me to wear a light jacket and a headband. I get migraines when my forehead gets cold. Anyway I was thinking about the steps I deliberately take every day for workouts and the steps we take ... Read more

  • morning walks

    10/17/2017 9:50:51 AM, by TXCURIOUS

    Morning walks are the best. Right after 8 am it's quiet and fresh outside. I wait until 8 because the Elementary school is about 350 yards from my front lawn and the busses come past... not to mention all those teachers and parents that drop off their kids. But right after 8 am everything is qui... Read more

    What a difference a day makes.. have you ever heard that saying? Well, yesterday to today the morning temperature dropped by 24 degrees. I just got back from my crisp, fresh air morning walk. I really love this so much better, but huhhh it was chilly. I put on a short sleeve sweater as I disli... Read more

  • goal setting

    10/15/2017 8:12:13 AM, by TXCURIOUS

    Thanks for the anniversary wishes everyone. We had a nice relaxing day and I cooked us food instead eating out. We celebrated with one piece of chocolate pie and worked it into the calorie range for the day ! So now new week about to start. I changed and upped the goals for this week and possi... Read more

  • Tried a new meal

    10/14/2017 7:51:21 AM, by JOYLARK

    Tried something new for dinner which ended up being a bit bland even though it included a pickled red cabbage. Next time going to try a marinade on the meat to see if that helps. Also bought a new cookbook today so between that and all the recipes here on Spark, and other places online hopefully I'l... Read more

  • It Feels like I'm Tired All the Time

    10/13/2017 11:15:27 AM, by CAMPBELL51

    24 I feel tired right now and I want to exercise, but I have a heart condition that when I do walk, I feel so out of breath. I am consulting my cardiologist and he feels he can help me feel better after the treatment. I am waiting for this procedure to be done in November 2017. I feel empowered i... Read more

  • anniversary

    10/13/2017 10:29:05 AM, by TXCURIOUS

    tomorrow is our 34th wedding anniversary and we have nothing planned. How glorious is that! We probably end up getting something to eat, as in eating out or we postpone it until we feel like driving into town.. but we have no have to's must do's or any other demand on us. Just perfect !...

  • pushing to hard?

    10/12/2017 10:15:26 AM, by TXCURIOUS

    my hubby always says I am pushing to hard. He is not happy with me at the moment that I hurt my knee again, but really what can he do about it. It's what it is. I sat for along time reading and when I got up I didn't find my balance right away and twisted my knee. it's what it is. When I feel fin... Read more

    Knee is getting better, just a little more rest needed. I will start a light walk today and see how it holds up just about 1 mile today. The weird thing is that I can ride my bike just fine; that's what I been doing the past few days since I hurt myself. While I was sitting on the sofa and fe... Read more

  • sleep over

    10/7/2017 8:17:56 PM, by TXCURIOUS

    thanks for all the comments on yesterdays blog. 252 We had a clear night and went on a full moon walk in our neighborhood just around 9 pm. Our granddaughter had insisted that she was going to stay up all night and we of course told her .. sure you can, knowing full well she'd not only hi... Read more

  • full moon

    10/6/2017 3:39:45 PM, by TXCURIOUS

    Every time the full moon falls or nearly falls on a Friday night we have our granddaughter for a sleep over. Now that she is in school it is far more difficult to have her over then it was. The little cutie is about to lose her second tooth and she loves loves loves school. Many evenings she cal... Read more

  • stumbled, but not much

    10/5/2017 9:53:20 AM, by TXCURIOUS

    Yesterday I stumbled a little. Hubby had a cherry pie and felt bad for eating it all himself, so I broke my evening no snack rule and had a piece. He cut off the crust on the back of it I never like it anyway, but still it has a lot of sugar. In all honesty I could have said no and he would have l... Read more

  • rain and fog

    10/4/2017 9:41:44 AM, by TXCURIOUS

    This is my season, when it rains at night and is all foggy in the morning... I just got back from my morning walk and it feels amazing. The air is so much cleaner and it smells like earth and wet leaves out there, like forest after a storm. We didn't get much rain here last night, but it was gentl... Read more

  • ready, set , and here we go again

    10/3/2017 7:55:58 AM, by TXCURIOUS

    Some days I feel like I did everything right and I wake up in the morning with the numbers higher on the scale than the day before. Drink more water, eat more fiber, snack less, move more.... its a chore and a nightmare to fit with my daily life. ... just sometime, just a minute or so I think it... Read more
