Trying New Things
Tuesday, September 25, 2012      11 comments

Is there any form of fitness/exercise that you tried and gave up? Is there any form of fitness/exercise that you would like to try? I'm not wild about the way this question is framed. Gave up? I guess. I prefer to think of it as a progress... Read more
Blog Challenge Quickie
Monday, September 24, 2012      7 comments

When did you add a fitness goal to your healthy lifestyle? I think I had a fitness goal from the beginning since those were the first changes I made. Changing how/what I ate came later. For me it's always been a matter of getting my butt out o... Read more

Except for the month when I was in high school and my mother was living with my brother, sister-in-law and young nephew while they grieved the loss of yet another child through miscarriage and the rest of my family pretended nothing was wrong, n... Read more

Today was a great day! It was all work related stuff that is just too boring to go into, but I must say I had a wonderful moment (among several) when I showed up at an invitation only event and this woman who thinks she is all that and more almo... Read more
A nice hot cuppa

Today's lesson is on what unhealthy foods I gave up or refuse to give up. This is easy. Nothing. When I think in terms of "I'll never do this again" or "I have to do this for the rest of my life", my eyes glaze over and roll into the back of my ... Read more

Like a lot of people who are responding to the 30 day blog challenge (what is your go-to meal on days when you don't have much time and don't have cooler/refrigeration), I tend to eat healthy snack thingies. I usually have almonds a banana or an... Read more
Smoothie Florentine
Tuesday, September 18, 2012      7 comments

Just a short observation. A few of you have made reference to smoothies made with spinach - particularly smoothies made with spinach, bananas, chocolate and cherries. Glowing, perhaps even ecstatic descriptions. Yeah. I must be missing something... Read more
Old Fashioneds as part of a well balanced diet

Today's blog challenge wants me to talk about my repeat foods. I am not a "rut" eater. One of my former bosses ate a McDonald's caesar salad with grilled chicken, balsamic vinaigrette and a large diet coke. Every single day. I just can't do... Read more

Today's blog challenge wants me to explain my eating plan. Since we've been married, The Hubster and I have been on an ebb and flow of being vegetarian. We didn't intentionally decide to be vegetarian. When we were first married, we were al... Read more
Fitness websites, Ceilings and Feeling Puny
Saturday, September 15, 2012      11 comments

Today's blog challenge wants to know what other fitness/health websites I use besides SparkPeople. In the past I used WebMD for quite a while. That helped me understand how big portion sizes were, what a "normal" size meal was, and it got ... Read more
Exercise that Doesn't Feel Like Exercise
Friday, September 14, 2012      12 comments

Time to catch up on the blog challenge. Two today. Both questions have to do with lifestyle changes to become healthier - what was easy and what was hard. It's all hard! My natural inclination is to lounge on the couch all day reading trash... Read more
NYC Gave Me Blisters But the Triathlon Didn't

Yesterday was a real vacation day! Yeah! We took the 12:20 ferry from The Highlands to NYC. It was a perfect day. Low humidity, bright blue skies, calm water, warm with enough cool to be *just* comfortable wearing a tank top. The Hubster and I ... Read more
NJ is a beautiful state - 2 blogs today

Yesterday did not work out as I would have liked. The Hubster ended up working until 6:00! At least we had a walk and lunch out. Around 3:30 it was abundantly clear to me that our plans were shot to hell. He didn't feel he could tell The Boss to... Read more
You're the Inspiration
Wednesday, September 12, 2012      8 comments

Today's blog challenge is about what inspires me. First off, let me say that early as it is, I've read at least 5 blogs on this subject this morning and all of them said something along the lines of "You, fellow Sparkers, inspire me." Can I... Read more
