My Daily Routine
Friday, July 03, 2020      5 comments

Tomorrow begins the Summer 5 % Challenge. For Week 1 we've been assigned to establish a routine and stick to it -- we receive points for sticking to it. I thought it best to write it where I can easily refer to it, so that I can be sure to do a... Read more
Easy Dinner
Thursday, August 08, 2019      10 comments

No, I don't normally blog about food... but a dear friend and fellow Sparkler wrote about her lovely spaghetti dinner, then added an apologetic comment about all the carbs. Not that I think a good spaghetti dinner is not worth the carbs, but I ... Read more
My Commitment is still strong!

A group of us Sparkies joined Sparkpeople around the same time quite a few years ago, and we have always repeated that we will NEVER give up. I have to admit that it is harder to lose a few party pounds nowadays than it used to be. Don't l... Read more

OK, So Change in Plans
Sunday, August 19, 2018      6 comments

Now that my knees are practically back to normal, I've decided to forego the "every day" exercises... period. It makes no sense. I have nothing to prove, except that I can break my body down by overworking it. I am on Day 3 of a program of f... Read more

I'm listening to my body today. I'm giving my knees a break from the squats... living to fight another day. I'll pick up with Day 7 when the pain is gone. Heavy housecleaning day!... Read more

Yes, my knees hurt when I descended the stairs today. No more deep bends today, but I did all 100. I'm going to give it 2 more days, and if my knees don't get better, I'll continue til 30 days, but I won't be foolish. I'll cut back to 2-3 tim... Read more
Day 5 - 30 Days of 100 Squats
Monday, August 06, 2018      3 comments

It was 9:30 p.m. when I finally got to them (almost forgot), but I got them done. Knees a bit sore -- the deeper bend yesterday was not a good idea. I have to remember to take glucosamine-chondroitin and MSM. Whew! ... Read more
Day 4 - 30 Days of 100 Squats
Sunday, August 05, 2018      2 comments

I was so busy today that I didn't get to my squats until early evening, but I did them. Hardly any noticeable soreness at all now. I can even drop down past my knees, and squeeze the buttocks at the top. Let's see if this brings on more soren... Read more
