  • Diamond Anybody?

    4/27/2015 3:06:40 PM, by GOLFGMA

    A diamond is a piece of coal that stuck to the job. The greatest calamity is not to have failed, but to have failed to try. Something to think about, huh?... Read more

  • Not That Bunny!

    4/26/2015 10:37:33 PM, by GOLFGMA

    Found out today that I am not that bunny that keeps on going, and going, and going. I had a streak going for 115 days of exercising 30 minutes or more each of those days. Reached my limit this week with running back and forth to check on Mom, being frustrated with not getting help for her as we ha... Read more

  • There's no "There" There...

    4/25/2015 10:04:20 AM, by WATCHMEGO!

    Someone on another board I participate in posted a link to this blog about the myth of AFTER: https://cannebodyhearme.wordpr
    er-myth/ After reading her thoughts on being the "after" versus the "before" in weight loss I realize that what she has to say was/... Read more

  • Move It! Plan It!

    4/24/2015 2:09:22 PM, by GOLFGMA

    So many of us have good intentions. We dream of that perfect figure, reaching our perfect body weight and getting in shape to run a marathon. For some the intentions stay but without action it will never become reality. Every goal requires a plan. The planning can happen on Spark People and many... Read more

  • The Ups And Downs

    4/21/2015 4:44:19 PM, by GOLFGMA

    Life is like a ladder. Every step we take is either up or down. I think the weight scale is comparable. Every day we weigh it is either up or down. 246 192 192 192 192 192 192 192 192 192... Read more

  • Attitude

    4/20/2015 9:13:06 AM, by GOLFGMA

    While reading a Spark person's blog this morning there was a comment that perhaps some people need to dismiss changing jobs for changing their attitude. That caused me to think to myself "yes, I can see that" and thus, this idea of what if we could all improve ourselves by adjusting our attitudes. ... Read more

  • Beauty

    4/16/2015 8:08:31 PM, by GOLFGMA

    INNER BEAUTY NEVER GROWS OLD. When I saw this I thought about people I know who have what I think of inner beauty and came up with these reasons for why I think of them in this way. 1. Honest and stand up for what they feel is the right thing to do in all situations. 2. Alway... Read more

  • Post Exercise

    4/15/2015 11:18:03 AM, by GOLFGMA

    It is important to supply the body with food after exercise. And the answer is......carbohydrates preferably within 20 to 30 minutes. Don't forget to drink water every 15 minutes to replace what the body loses while with sweating.... Read more

  • Why Do We Do This?

    4/14/2015 10:36:30 AM, by GOLFGMA

    Why do we exercise? You might expect the first reason to be lose weight and that is a really good one if overweight, however there are more and I was reminded today when I read an article giving ten good reasons to exercise. 10 Good reasons to exercise 1. Release endorphins (feel good... Read more

  • It's Finished!

    4/11/2015 10:24:09 PM, by GOLFGMA

    I am so happy to have finished my first really long streak. Yesterday I completed 100 days of at least 30 minutes per day of active exercise. There were no rest days (not recommended I'm sure) but I am glad I did it. I am now in a routine and find it hard not to want to keep going. This t... Read more

  • Be Daring

    4/10/2015 11:30:21 PM, by GOLFGMA

    Do you find yourself doing the same thing week in and week out? If you look at my page you'll see that I am guilty of that a lot. I was not going anywhere fast with my weight loss for a lot of last year, but in January I joined a different team on SP that was issuing some challenges and started d... Read more

  • Making A Point!

    4/9/2015 8:10:52 AM, by GOLFGMA

    I am constantly looking for inspiration to make me want to go on when it seems so easy to give up, but, here I am with only two days left in a 100 day challenge and today will be hard. I will be going with friends to practice playing golf at a course we will play in tournament on Saturday. The wea... Read more

  • Love To Walk

    4/8/2015 7:23:55 PM, by GOLFGMA

    Walking is something I have learned to love since joining Spark People! We have a great park in my hometown and I love to walk there. Ours is similar to the one pictured with kiddie playground, picnic shelter and a gazebo, a little stream running along side to make it a peaceful place to be an... Read more

  • My Choice

    4/7/2015 8:36:22 AM, by GOLFGMA

    In thinking about a message I might want to send to friends I selected a quote I found. I don't think life should always be about me, but must confess it seems hard not to put oneself first. I want to be a supportive friend to others. To do that I have to put them first and that is a challenge f... Read more

  • Simple? NOT!

    4/2/2015 2:42:22 PM, by GOLFGMA

    Golf looks so simple , right? Then why do I wake up sometimes remembering my game from yesterday looking like this? Have a feeling tomorrow morning I will be looking even worse. In tournament play today my team struggled from the first hole all the way to the 18th. We even h... Read more

  • D-fence

    3/31/2015 7:33:07 PM, by GOLFGMA

    In an article I read today in a health book it was stated that though Calcium may be the major construction material in bone, vitamin D is the foreman that makes sure it's being used efficiently. Adults need 400 to 800 IU (under age 50) and 800 to 1,000IU (over age 50) daily. The best part of ... Read more

  • My Signature Sunday

    3/29/2015 8:33:38 PM, by GOLFGMA

    Today was an "up and down" type Sunday. I awoke this morning at 4:30! Yes, I know, bummer. I decided I had time to sleep a little longer, only, the little longer was too long and I had to change my routine in order to get in breakfast and devotionals. Arrived at church with 4 minutes to spare. ... Read more

  • Goal and new goal

    3/29/2015 9:35:56 AM, by PJZIELIN

    Does anyone else have a primary, realistic weight goal in place and then when you reach that, you'll set a new one? That is my strategy this time. 40-45 pounds sounds so overwhelming to me right now, that my initial goal is to lose 30 pounds first. I don't know why but that extra 10-15 pounds see... Read more
