It's my 6-month SparkVersary!
Thursday, February 09, 2012      13 comments

Oh, my goodness! How time flies! I almost didn't notice that I've been sparking for 6 whole months. I can't thank the Spark community enough for all your generous love and support. It helped me dig deep to find the strength to attain my ... Read more

Running with Prince
Saturday, February 04, 2012      8 comments

I just returned from a 3-mile run with my man, Prince. I just like that beat he hammers out every single time; I never have to fool with my ipod. "Let's Go Crazy," "1999," "You've Got the Look," "Raspberry Beret," "Work It." Remember those? ... Read more
A quick little valuable lesson
Sunday, January 22, 2012      14 comments

An SP friend had an encouragement to watch this in her Status area. It is such a valuable little piece, I'm passing it on to all of you as well as to my non SP friends. (I know they get sick of me passing them emails regarding health issues.) ... Read more
A visit to the dentist
Friday, January 20, 2012      5 comments

At my last 6-month dental checkup, I learned about one more thing on that seemingly-endless list of things that "go bad" as you age--your fillings. Apparently after doing their job for many, many years, they can actually cause tiny cracks in yo... Read more
The Beautyshop
Thursday, January 19, 2012      14 comments

Today I'm going to the beautyshop. I'm looking forward to it already. It's a pampering thing I do at least once a month. I used to go more often, but now I exercise so much it's just not worth it. Today I'll at least do my run before my appo... Read more
On the merits of exercise
Wednesday, January 18, 2012      9 comments

A strong body makes the mind strong. Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very fast. Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary b... Read more

Good advice for you -- good advice for me
Monday, January 16, 2012      6 comments

If you don't make a habit of reading the Daily Spark blogs, you may have missed today's first one "6 Healthy Habits to Start This Year." It's good advice that maybe we all know already, but need steady, regular reminders of to keep us on the ri... Read more
Do you know about the Facebook link?
Sunday, January 15, 2012      12 comments

There has been a lot of buzz on several blogs I have seen recently about the new "Like" button tied to Facebook, so maybe you've been apprised and have made your decision about how to handle it. I adjusted my options on my Spark page. Just in ... Read more
A Real Challenge This Time
Saturday, January 14, 2012      17 comments

I know I've seen losing weight as a challenge: I've seen exercising most days of the week a challenge; drinking 8 glasses of water is a challenge I still have not conquered. But now I've been given a real challenge. The Winter 5% Challenge... Read more
It's about more than losing weight
Tuesday, January 10, 2012      10 comments

Largely due to the 5% Challenges and the friendships and comraderie on SP, I'm really enjoying this. I'm not normally a web social network type of person (I have a very neglected Facebook account, and Twitter--I just never saw the point), so wh... Read more
It's not based on science!
Saturday, January 07, 2012      7 comments

3,500 calories = lb, so reduce intake by 500 cal a day -- blah-ah! Exercise at least 60 minutes a day to lose lbs. -- #@!&% Don't believe a word of it! Gain or loss, it's all accomplished by mischievous little elves! They liked me yeste... Read more
Only .5 lb holiday gain!
Wednesday, January 04, 2012      11 comments

It's a first for me. Visiting my family at anytime involves eating, eating and more eating, but during the holidays, it's also celebratory eating (even my birthday is added to the mix) that usually adds 7-10 lbs to my eager fat cells. This yea... Read more
Decluttering in 2012
Sunday, January 01, 2012      15 comments

Joining the team "Fit & Organized" got me thinking: I had already begun decluttering my home of all the "too-sentimental-to-throw-out" and "you-never-know-I-may-use-it-o
ne-day" stuff. But there are other areas in my life that I need to de... Read more
