The downside to my fitness tracker
Friday, May 01, 2015      1 comments

I have had my Spark Fitness Tracker for a week now and already have a love/hate relationship with it. I'm getting used to the fact that when we take the kids for a walk at work I have to keep my feet moving. We walked for about 1/2 hour and du... Read more

How many times do we try to lose weight and fail, only to try again saying "this time will be different?" Too many in my case. I always start strong, believing this will be the time I finally reach my goals, only to hit a bump and give up. ... Read more

I was so excited to get a new pedometer so I could walk outside while training for the 5k your way I just finished. Well, the pedometer doesn't match my estimates or my car when I drove around to see what it said. My estimate and the car were ... Read more

I tried eggplant pizza a year or two ago. The first time was ok, but the second time just depressed me. This was early in my gluten free days and I was looking for pizza and it just didn't cut it. Last week I found an eggplant for $1 and deci... Read more

Why do I do this to myself? I figured out that I feel better eating mainly grain free. Or at least when I don't eat the GF breads and pasta and such. Well, at work my lunch is provided and often that means plain chicken breast and veggies - p... Read more
