    Eight lemons, cut six of them into quarters. Reserve the other lemons for juice. Toss the lemon quarters with salt. I used about 2 tablespoons of Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt for each lemon I quartered. You want enough salt so that the lemon quarters are all uniformly coated in salt. Pack ... Read more

    9/24/2016 2:37:22 PM, by CHEFTONITO

    As with all of us, I find I never have enough time to do all the things I need to do. So I have been making a concerted effort to find ways to save time in all my normal activities. My latest effort is concentrating activities that I would normally do every day in a single burst at a convenient time... Read more

  • Mistakes

    9/24/2016 2:13:21 PM, by MARJCLAY

    I have committed to tracking my food again. I usually track after I eat and sometimes I think I have really blown it and shouldn't track because I don't want to see how poorly I have done. But, I do track and maybe cookies weren't the healthiest option but I am still in my calorie range and really h... Read more

  • Happy Saturday, Spark Friends!

    9/24/2016 12:20:12 PM, by MIDORI_SPARK

    Good morning! It's my favourite time of year, fall. I don't like when it's too hot or too cold out, so fall weather is my ideal, and it is such a short season! So I need to enjoy it while it's here. I will go out for a long walk today and enjoy all the pretty colours. I haven't checked in to ... Read more

    I dont know about your family, but sometimes, maybe most of the time, all six brothers and sisters do not agree on the care that my mother should receive. This past week, I was happily surprised at how well we worked together. My Mom fell of Wednesday. My brother John took charge since he w... Read more

  • Finally decent news from foot doctor

    9/23/2016 11:07:34 PM, by TERRI289

    The diagnosis is a split one: the sciatica may be affecting the foot or I have tarsal tunnel syndrome(carpal tunnel for the foot basically). We are doing conservative things: rest, othotics, soaking in hot water, stretches, roomy shoes, and NO JUMPING!) Hope to see improvement in a month or I will n... Read more

  • Summer Is Over

    9/23/2016 11:00:40 PM, by UPPITYANN

    I'm perhaps the last one to get the news--summer is over. I guess there was even a solstice a few days ago. I really got out of the Spark groove over the summer. All through winter I could hardly wait for summer dreaming of all the extra exercise I was going to do. Well, then we got slam... Read more

    So far I have been pretty consistent in logging my food and doing the exercises. I've been working at this for three weeks now, and I've lost 8 pounds since I've started. I'm trying to only lose about 10 pounds at a time, just so it's not frustrating to feel like I'm not making progress.... Read more

  • Days 19 and 20- compliant and not compliant

    9/23/2016 7:59:16 PM, by LESLIELENORE

    I didn't write a blog last night because I fell asleep early. Before I ate dinner early, which is why I was not compliant with the calorie limit of the challenge. If I had eaten the dinner I had planned on I would have been compliant, but I guess my body needed sleep more than it needed food. I w... Read more
