A Must Have - The Spark Book
Sunday, January 10, 2010      4 comments

I have to admit when I ordered The Spark I did it mainly to support SparkPeople and did not think it would provide more benefits than the site already had. Now that I am into the book I can see how wrong I was. Reading the books has tied togethe... Read more
My Most Valuable Spark Tool
Saturday, January 09, 2010      2 comments

The nutritional tracker daily report is my most valuable tool that I use. I don't wait until the end of the day to track but instead run it after I have had breakfast and lunch. When I am planning dinner I run the report and see how I am doing f... Read more

Exercising Out of the Box
Thursday, December 31, 2009      5 comments

Today I discovered that exercise does not have to compete with what you want to get done, but instead can complement it. My son-in-law often comes over in the morning and fills up the wood bin on our front porch that we use to heat the hou... Read more
The Hit as a Gift

I want to take a few minutes this morning to share something with my Spark friends that I read in a recent Prevention magazine . This was part of an article, "The Long View of a Healthy Life". This part of the article touched and inspired me and... Read more
Body signals - my most important lesson learned yet on SP
Monday, December 21, 2009      3 comments

My body tells me what to do if I only listen. I'm sure many of you, like me, have forgotten how to listen to your body and instead react to what you read or think might happen. I spent all last week exercising at least 60 minutes a day. I t... Read more
40 to go but why stop there . . .
Friday, December 18, 2009      2 comments

I find myself with a new level of Spark. It might be the time I have for myself now that school is done (except for the final grades which still need to be completed) but I think it is something different. I have a whole new attitude. Yeste... Read more
Am I The Biggest Loser? - A New Goal Maybe But Still Not Starting Over
Wednesday, December 09, 2009      7 comments

Today I posted a new goal and started my little red progress line over again. I was glad to see, though, that the old progress (or lack of progess) did not disappear off of my graph. Looking at the past I found that from August of last year unti... Read more
Being Grateful for Everything I Have
Wednesday, September 30, 2009      4 comments

I expected to write about a weight loss topic today, but instead I find myself wanting to write about taking the time to notice all the wonderful things around oneself. Today I have a day to do what I want. I started by logging into Spark. ... Read more
Day 5 - Refining the Process
Wednesday, September 09, 2009      3 comments

Looking at the red goal line in my weight record could be frustrating as I can see if I stayed on goal I would now be at 165. How wonderful that sounds? Instead of getting discouraged though I must use the experience to ensure success in the fut... Read more
Day 4
Wednesday, September 09, 2009      0 comments

Tonight I picked watermelon over ice cream with chocolate syrup on top for dessert. I might have missed other things I planned to do today, but at least I made this positive choice before I went to bed. I want to dwell on the positives and not t... Read more
A Short Note Today
Sunday, September 06, 2009      1 comments

This will have to be short. I have been working on necessary school assignments all day but I am happy with my progress and will get back to logging food and exercise more next week. This is day 2 of the 21!... Read more
Getting Back to My Lowest Point - My New Goal
Saturday, September 05, 2009      5 comments

I have found my new goal. I want to get back to the lowest point that I reached on Sparkpeople. I have been going the other way and have lost most of the progress I previously made. I want today to be the day that the trend reverses and get back... Read more
The Six Foot Rule - It Works Both Ways
Monday, April 27, 2009      2 comments

Today I was read about the six foot rule. Tempting items are best stored at least six feet away from where you are. This one habit has been shown to make a dramatic change in what is actually eaten. It is best to store these items on the highest... Read more
Being Aware of What I Eat While I Eat It
Wednesday, April 22, 2009      1 comments

It is so easy to eat just because I know I need to. When I eat I get satisfaction from the flavors and scents of the food. That makes me want to reach for more. Often I do so without even thinking about it . . . or I think about it and decide to... Read more
