I ran across this story while searching the internet for a reading. I'd thought I'd share, plus save it here for myself for later: An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to th... Read more

Some people think of New Year's as a time for starting over and change. I know I joined SP just after New Year's in 2012 so I feel that need to make resolutions (and try to stick with them). But still, something about the spring always ... Read more

A while ago, I set one of my goals here on SP as “Maintain to May 3, 2014, my one year maintenance anniversary”. Every day that message scrolled across the goal board on my SP start page and I used it (among lots of other motivations) to focus... Read more

So, March is supposed to come in like a lion and leave like a LAMB, right? Well someone didn't get the memo. This morning, last day of March, I'm looking out at sleet and freezing rain. Listening to it bounce off the windows. Ground is coat... Read more

Today is my 2 year SparkVersary. Yes, I joined Jan. 3 as a "New Year's resolution" but it has been the best one ever. As most of my SparkFriends know, I managed to get to my goal weight last year. I've been successfully maintaining for... Read more
Day 4
Saturday, November 23, 2013      2 comments

I hurt my glute earlier this week. Not sure how but think it was probably overdoing it on the exercise. At first I tried some very light exercise to work it out. BAD idea. Now I'm on Day 4 of no fitness. Didn't even get 2000 steps on ... Read more

Just took a long weekend away, went to Martha's Vineyard and rented bicycles, rode all over the island. Lots of long walks on the beach and around town---just a fantastic time and perfect weather. Food was fabulous, although I went WAY over ... Read more

Today I reached 20,000 Sparkpoints & 18,000 Fitness Minutes. I'm so happy about those numbers because to me, each point or minute represents a healthy choice that I made, as opposed to the unhealthy way I used to live. It made me think about... Read more

Right now I'm watching the first hummingbird of the season at my feeder. I put it right outside my kitchen window so I can see them all summer long. Nothing says "Winter is FINALLY over! " to me like the first hummingbird sighting eac... Read more

When I joined SP in January 2012, I set my weight goal to lose 74 pounds with a ETA of May 29, 2013. I now have one pound to get to that goal and still about 4 weeks until May 29, give or take. When I set the goal (129), honestly I ... Read more
