  • There Is Still Time!

    1/22/2020 7:52:22 PM, by FUNLOVEN

    I started out this month on sound ground. I had some ideas that I wanted to pursue this year regarding my diet plan and fitness. The first 2 weeks of the month I was doing fairly well at following my usual fitness schedule and IE using the No S Plan. I had even given up all alcohol. Then th... Read more

  • Life is good?

    1/22/2020 6:43:43 PM, by SMILE7737

    My life is wonderful. I am able to go to work, pay my bills, own a dog and 2 cats, have a wonderful (almost fiance) boyfriend with assist raising his son. I'm not a millionaire and I don't want to be. All of these are good things and I want to do and give more but at the same time, I feel like I'm a... Read more

    1/22/2020 4:48:44 PM, by PICKIE98

    Today I had to call the water department because I never got my quarterly bill. IT turns out they got it back from the post office to return to sender! I have lived her since 1984 and never had a problem. They have had the bill there in the office(it is about a mile from here) and never bothered to... Read more

  • Hello 2020!

    1/22/2020 2:43:50 PM, by ILOVEME2016

    I'm wondering what February is going to be like because January/Christmas was kind of crazy. W/out going into the details, there always seems to be those times when you are going through life and then through no fault of your own the people or the situation around you "get weird" and you have d...

  • Pep Talks and Dirty Dishes

    1/22/2020 1:40:33 PM, by SALVAGEDLIFE

    I'm 3 days into my lifestyle change. While I haven't needed a come to Jesus meeting with myself, I have had a series of pep talks along the way. DH has been working longer hours since last Thursday so time together has been limited. Yesterday we had a chance to catch up before he left and then I did... Read more

  • Grade 1 groin strain

    1/21/2020 6:08:55 PM, by AHTRAP

    On the good side, it's not a new hernia (or an old one poking through again). On the bad...it hurts to sit down, it hurts to get up after sitting down, it's uncomfortable all day, and it's causing pain to shoot up and down my left leg. So I really wouldn't recommend getting one, unless you truly are... Read more

  • Living in the Moment-Take 1

    1/21/2020 4:28:40 PM, by SALVAGEDLIFE

    Had a pretty good day yesterday. Got the dishes caught up, counters cleaned off and made dinner. Foodwise it was a blue dot day. I decided to start an audible book and found a self help book I don't even remember buying while looking through the library. It's only 3 1/2 hours so I thought I wo... Read more

  • P.T. Evaluation

    1/21/2020 3:34:43 PM, by PICKIE98

    I went this morning to meet with Casey, my therapist. I had him when he first began there three years ago. I was gasping for air on our 6-minute walk, had to stop a lot to rest. I start for the real deal on Thursday morning, so bought some new workout pants. My old ones are huge, so got som... Read more

    1/20/2020 7:52:01 PM, by AHTRAP

    Cutting and pasting my "about me" section from my spark page for today's entry, with the occasional, and very randomly timed updates on my progress, or regress, as it were. See below for a few annotative comments. Noticing when looking through old blog entries, that there are a lot of dead song... Read more

    1/20/2020 7:48:27 PM, by PICKIE98

    Today began with a doctor visit for a wellness check. He reduced my Lasix by half, but added another memory drug. I hit almost every green light in three cities, so that was nice to travel around. We enjoyed a nice lunch and came home to some chores. I also got a doc order for some much-n... Read more

  • 1/20/20 - Featured Motivator... what?

    1/20/2020 1:36:45 PM, by KAY-SUPREME

    I was just pondering how, in order to make sure I don't go insane at work this summer, I'm going to have to get back to the gym so I have some sort of a release to keep my sanity in check. I just rewatched Fittest on Earth -- a Crossfit documentary that really makes you want to get up and move... Read more

  • Calling it a night

    1/19/2020 9:37:38 PM, by AHTRAP

    930 and I’m ready to call it a night. Was at the gym to play pickleball at 8 am, and I certainly got my exercise in, but I walked out of there very slowly. Hip and/or groin giving me some extensive grief. The snow shoveling yesterday, and/or the bowling Saturday didn't help what was already a slowly... Read more

  • It's really not that hard....

    1/19/2020 5:29:57 PM, by SALVAGEDLIFE

    Today my trial period of 2020 is over and it's time to get to work of the goals I've been toying with in my head. First and foremost get back on track with WW. It works and I know it does. It just takes a bit of effort on my part. It's really not that hard and I know that and I need to stop th... Read more

  • Weight Down

    1/19/2020 4:19:13 PM, by GRETA242

    My weight is down!! I weighed in yesterday morning and found I'd lost 3 pounds from the previous day and one pound from last weeks weigh in at the same time. Yipee!! I know my weight fluctuates with water weight. I just need to remember that and not freak out any time it goes up. So I went from 406.... Read more

    1/18/2020 7:39:55 PM, by SPARKNB

    3 main small victories I can think of today (& was having a hard time, so may start logging 3 daily so it's more of a summary of the week) Stairs: I continue to be able to move more easily up stairs; only had to do the grasp and pull a little this week, unlike a fortnight ago, it was EVERY time...

  • Alas, there was no rattlesnake

    1/18/2020 12:59:47 AM, by AHTRAP

    Sadly, the menus online for the place I went tonight were out of date, and the current menus lacked the most interesting items the old ones had, namely the rattlesnake chorizo and the alligator sausage. I went with the bison/lamb merguez, which, if you read the description on the wiki page for that ... Read more

  • An Insight from the Prayer for Weight Loss Challenge

    1/17/2020 4:22:49 PM, by ANNIESADVENTURE

    Recently I completed a 7 Day Prayers for Weight Loss Challenge with about 200 women. It was a wonderful experience, bringing new insights. (Prayer for weight loss). Lord God, so often I don't want to do the things that would help me be healthy. I would rather eat chips than carrots. I choose ... Read more

    1/17/2020 2:40:21 PM, by PICKIE98

    Today is the first time I have left my house since last Friday. I ran errands, getting fresh foods before the predicted storm hits tonight. It is supposed to hi hared in southern Michigan, but living on Lake Huron, you learn to expect anything minute-by-minute. At least it is not really cold.. a ba... Read more

  • Winter is coming (again)

    1/17/2020 2:28:47 PM, by AHTRAP

    Winter storm affecting 90 million people in the US won't be missing southeastern Michigan this time, as we're due for 6-8 inches of snow before all is said and done. While not excited about it, I'm also feeling a sense of, "about time winter showed up in the way winter is supposed to show up," with ... Read more

  • Some need to howl at the midwinter moon

    1/16/2020 7:56:27 PM, by AHTRAP

    Nothing to say today, so that is a line from the song I'm listening to just now, "Between Sun and Moon," by Rush. That band has a regular place in my listening habits, but has been in heavy rotation over the past 6 days, after Neil Peart's death. === I don't often stick to playing mobile ... Read more

    1/16/2020 6:54:26 PM, by PICKIE98

    I made some wonderful protein-rich pintos/pink beans yesterday with a ham bone I had. I added my spices, some ranch bean ingredients, making this almost completely protein except some onion. I find that I only ate once at 3 P.M. and am not hungry many hours later. Water seems to fill the bill. I ... Read more

I putzed around doing little things upstairs, mostly with my c-pap supplies. We went into the back yard and filled the feeders for the first t... Read more

    1/15/2020 5:17:42 PM, by AHTRAP

    Today's wikipedia rabbit hole led from some opening point I don't even remember to the difference between prawns (three of their pairs of legs have claws!) and shrimp (more bendy than prawns!), to Fiona Apple's albums (had to look up what the 'when the pawn...' album's full title was), through to Qu...

  • From Foodie to Fasting

    1/15/2020 3:07:40 PM, by ANNIESADVENTURE

    I like to eat. I like going out to eat. I love reading recipes, and have too many cookbooks. There is a sense of satisfaction in creating good food. Anticipation is frequently better than reality. The calories shouldn't count if it didn't taste as good as expected. We've made our obsess... Read more

Just think if we can keep it up for the whole month. What an accomplishment. Keep it up and le... Read more

  • Not a great day

    1/14/2020 5:44:26 PM, by AHTRAP

    Took my dad out to visit one of his best friends, who used to be quite a presence, a real force of nature type of guy. But age and infirmity have taken a toll, and it was rather depressing to see how he's doing these days. My mom didn't make the trip, because she was feeling weak, and despite my dad... Read more

    1/14/2020 4:30:51 AM, by GRETA242

    Yesterday I weighed in and found I had gained a pound from over the weekend. I was discouraged. Even so, I racked my brain to discover where I had went wrong. Saturday morning I weighed in at 406.8. Monday afternoon I weighed 407.8. I had increased my water intake Monday and ate sodium rich venison ... Read more

That was the third time in my life I have lost a significant amount of weight and then just failed and gained it all back. As of today, Jan. 1, 2020, I'm starting all over again. I'm sick of all the rollercoas... Read more

  • Happy New Year and New Goals

    1/1/2020 9:57:33 PM, by GRETA242

    Happy New Year everyone!!! Yesterday, I signed up to be a client at Medical Weight Loss Clinic. I bought 20 weeks with unlimited visits. I talked to the staff about my weight loss goals--60 pounds to start. Found out that they do not recommend eating chicken from a can--pooh! I told them I do ... Read more

    I can not believe a difference a year can make. We took a picture by a Christmas tree again this year and could see such a difference in how we look much healthier.... Read more

  • Goals

    1/1/2020 7:23:54 PM, by SMILE7737

    I'm a list person. I like things in order, planned ahead, and to check it off. I've had an alarm on my phone for some time just so I can look at my goals everyday. I think it helps keep me focused, however, it's always good to dive in deep and to review them often. "SMART" goals in my opinion, too r... Read more

    Just putting a couple of numbers in a place I can easily reference them. 1/1/20 entry, first moment of the new year, and there's where I stand, weightwise, and also how many points I have on this site, which is more or less a good proxy for how much exercise I'm getting in. Not doing resolution... Read more

  • Limping into the new year, perhaps

    12/31/2019 2:45:12 PM, by AHTRAP

    Went to play pickleball one last time for the year, and came away having tweaked something in the inner back part of my thigh. Now I'm pulled hamstrings before, I've pulled groins, but this might be the first time I've tweaked this particular muscle. And I use the word tweak deliberately, since it's... Read more

  • Bring on the 20s, I ain't scared

    12/30/2019 11:01:10 PM, by AHTRAP

    In two days, or more precisely 25 hours, we will enter the decade in which I will turn 50 years old. That particularly event won't occur until the year 2025. If I were so inclined to fear that occurrence, I might find the commencement of the new decade to be of concern. But I don't. I scribbl... Read more
