Wednesday, November 27, 2013      11 comments

I just have to say, I LOVE SP! It's so much fun to check out the motivational stories and videos, ready my friends blogs, etc. I also value the exercise and nutrition trackers. But I'm a procrastinator-and whatever is fun for me, I do f... Read more

I haven't met anybody on SP yet that isn't in a struggle of some kind. Maybe I haven't read enough stories, but somehow I don't think I'll find that person that sa... Read more

Friday, October 25, 2013      10 comments

My absolute favorite exercise is walking outside with a friend, or biking outside with my husband on weekends. Now that the weather has turned cold with occasional sleet, I'm transitioning to indoor stuff. I read this tip from someone else... Read more

Just tried something different with my morning breakfast smoothie---adding a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder. Wow---my new chocolate treat! It will replace the 1/4 of a dark chocolate candy bar I've been "allowing" myself every day. Ev... Read more
Figuring out what I CAN do, not just what I CAN'T do
Friday, October 18, 2013      8 comments

Staying positive is so key to working out. No matter what our limitations, there's always some form of exercise that works. I just came across this chart about water exercises on somebody else's blog. I've always loved swimming, and I hav... Read more
