  • 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

  • I'm Irish!

    3/17/2015 8:51:57 PM, by PJZIELIN

    I'm part Irish, so every year, I look forward to corned beef and cabbage. I made it in the crock pot with lots of veggies as and not as much meat. I watched my portions and have been good at tracking my food again, so still enjoyed my annual treat! No green beer for me though and green wine didn'... Read more

  • Because of YOU!

    3/11/2015 8:07:33 PM, by GOLFGMA

    In a blog yesterday I admitted my reluctance to do my strength and toning workouts. I promised myself I would do better, or, at least try. This morning when I did my cardio I thought about the blog and my promise aaannnnd, you know what, I decided I did not want to have to say to my SP friends th... Read more

My problem seems to be I am doing the 10,000 steps per day and at least 30-60 minutes of active fit minutes 7 days a week. I know that the recommendation is... Read more

  • Sundays

    3/8/2015 3:21:35 PM, by GOLFGMA

    My Sundays are very much the same. Breakfast is pretty much at the same time as any other day, but, from there my day is not the same as a week day. I still start with devotions, breakfast, then Spark People but the next hour is getting ready for church. Church for us begins at 10:00 with Sun... Read more

    I blogged last week about the fun workouts I am doing while watching the "Kelly and Michael Show" on TV . Somehow while watching something interesting the time flies and before you know it 60 minutes is gone. I like the fact that the show airs at 9:00 so the workout gets the metabolism going for t...

    3/2/2015 1:19:04 PM, by GOLFGMA

    I love Mondays! On Monday evening each week three of my friends and I get together at 6:00 to play Canasta and sometimes we switch to other card games. We break after an hour or so and have our little social refreshment time. We take turns providing the refreshments and tonight is my night to pro... Read more
