I've known this site the longest and find it the most motivating out of any nutrition and fitness tracking websites I've used. Tracking my food really helps me. I would definitely over- and under-eat if I didn't count calories. Having the sense of accomplishment of inputting my workouts into the tracker and seeing how many calories I burned for the day also motivates me to work out. And I do like collecting Sparkpoints!

As you hold on... as long as you do what's in your heart... I believe you can do the right thing.

The food tracking really helps me see what I am really taking in each day. The points really help motivate me to do activities, connect and learn. The challenges and "streaks" are helping me to be here every day.

emoticon 4-28-2020 THX Peaches11: Great info about cat's claw being an herb & usually grows in rain forest. Interesting it is in our back yard. The area it grows IS very rain foresty. Lot's of humidity, because of the pool & watering system. Under palm trees. We actually planted it on the fence backing up to the park. Didn't want kids coming over it. Seems to work. The area I am clearing out, I didn't know it was growing there! Truly amazing plant. I 'worked' another 150 minutes, today. 3 more feet. PLUS found the water control 'hole'! Been looking for years! After walk with LUCY & before the heat hit. About 6:30 am. I sure am getting exercise! Mostly like pulling ropes. GREAT core workout. I'm back to work, (inside). Not sure this is very interesting to you, but it IS what I am doing! Be happy everyone! & I will try, too!

My energy because of better health!

emoticon 4-27-2020 I've been adding A lot more minutes, gardening. emoticon emoticon It is AMAZING how much 'cats claw' has taken over part of our back yard & the neighbors house, from our side!! The vines are an inch thick! I DO need to get out at sunrise if I'm going to tackle that plant again, it IS huge & spreads EVERYWHERE! emoticon 180 minutes of gardening! Glad my 'core' is strong!

First, I walked LUCY dogie emoticon . Then I got our raw veggies packed, rainbow carrots; asparagus; celery; snow peas; for my 'grab & go' even though I don't go out much, these days. I still eat them for lunch or snack. (Turkey jerky; hard eggs; or celery & peanut butter, too) emoticon Made our GREEN drinks, breakfast. Also made Lucy her favorite 'soup' veggie & chicken. emoticon The temps are going up. It's 96 today. 102, emoticon tomorrow, only down to 77. It was 67 high LAST Monday! I am being VERY adaptable emoticon with our life right now. Plus working, of course! Sharing a little with you! emoticon Be happy & safe!! AND I will try, too! emoticon emoticon

Although I don't feel the need to check in everyday, my motivation comes from getting the e-mails when I sign up for challenges. Even though I don't like getting too many e-mails, it helps to keeps me in line.

Accountability is important for my health. When I went off SP, I lost track of eating and sure enough, my health went down,

emoticon 4-15-2020 I made a BIG batch of veggie soup with a little chicken. Using up the fresh veggies before we can't eat them. I make a special batch for LUCY dog, too, she loves it! No spices, dogs can't have onions, garlic, mushrooms or chocolate, ALL deadly to dogs, just in case you didn't know!! I make the BIG batch, (about 1.5 gallons) put her's into her container, THEN, add the spices to ours. I do add a little mesquite smoke flavoring for taste. Makes it REALLY amazing, deep flavors! I add whole grain brown rice noodles, too! I think I'll make whole grain corn bread for the soup tonight. I add jalapenos to it, YUMMY! I'll freeze several quarts, for another time. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

My 'new' friends!

emoticon 4-14-2020 Today I have been catching up with DH business, as we learn to adjust to this online, everything. emoticon We are doing good. A LOT more cuddly &. LUCY gets longer walks, well, at least as long as she wants! I bring her home, brush her & go out for a longer walk around the neighborhood. Remember to have fun!

A Humming bird came to our upstairs window & 'played' with me for several minutes. SO PRECIOUS!!!! I kept talking to her. No photos, but MAXIMUM fun! Be safe & I will too!

Everyone here!

emoticon 3-26-2020 My hair guy's shop closed. But he invited me to his home (we can visit people with up to 9 people) & he did my hair last Monday (just the 2 of us). He cut it VERY short (for me), just in case. Our state NV isn't on total lock down, yet. But I have been VERY careful or not going out for several weeks, now. Washing hands, masks, gloves, hat, etc.... I put hand sanitizer on top of the gloves & mask, too. Just as an extra protection. So when I DO have to venture out, I can feel a little safer. I have been keeping 10 feet away for everyone, again for several weeks.Check out GINASPARKS3 blogs. She has been living through it for several months, GREAT info! Once I started reading her, I immediately followed her advise. At first people thought I was weird, they don't now!

I think THE most important thing to do for our health is to 'play', whatever that means for you! emoticon emoticon . I've been taking photos around our yard; editing photos; cleaning closet spaces; cooking & trying new recipes; coming to Spark land more often, etc. Finding the JOY in life, as it changes, daily! How about you? emoticon Stay happy! emoticon

(thx IAMJETTA for photo!)

emoticon 3-25-2020 I realized 3 months ago was Christmas! AND 7 months to go before the next one! emoticon I have kept my little Christmas tree up. It makes me feel good to see the little twinkle lights. As we are getting more & more locked into our lovely homes, I am trying to find ways to be joy FILLED & exercise, as in walking. I usually do 3 miles a few times a week. Today the wind is going to be 35MPH. So I took Lucy dog, out early. She was happy to get out. She DOES have a nice back yard, but not the same!

Also, communicating with family & friends through the internet. Doing things that bring me joy. Taking photos, is 1 thing I love! NOW I have time to edit them! We usually work out of our home & still are. But things have changed for us, as I am SURE they have for you! Let's just keep our sunny side's up!

IF you want to read blogs from SP, GINASPARKS3; she has/is living through it, today is her 62 day! Check out her blogs, she is a GREAT emoticon for all of us!

(I took photos of SPRING in our paradise back yard this last Sunday. REMEMBERING my bliss!)

Again I am better because of YOU!

emoticon 3-22-2020 What I am doing during this VERY quiet time: Happy 1 month Birthday emoticon to my emoticon new FAIRY GOD DAUGHTER! I have been doing ALLOT more communicating through the internet, texting, phone &&&&. I have been playing with my clothes. Putting on things I forgot I had. Waiting to wear them for business meetings, etc. I feel so pretty, dressing up just for me! & DH of course! I plan on getting into our garden. Last Saturday, we cleaned the house from top to bottom, I'm cleaning out drawers & spaces that have needed it for several years. BABY steps here! We CAN go outside, (Las Vegas) so our back yard paradise is where I spend some time, too cold for pool right now. Also, keeping 10 feet away of others, using a mask & gloves & hand sanitize. Our park behind us, closed for refurbishments, just before this all started. It IS so wonderfully quiet in the neighborhood, now! Walking our dog, etc. So yesterday I went to the Wetlands & walked several hours. Spring is everywhere there, too! I am also doing more SP videos, my favorite as I have said, forever, is SP Nicole's 12 minute seated core work out. I also plan on getting back into my Sheppard Pilates DVD. I WAS able to do it 3 times a week. I stopped when I hurt my knee. But better, now. It REALLY brings in the inches. Also, we are running our business from home, as best we can. So far so good! I think the most important thing for me is to stay positive. Stop & smell the flowers. Period. emoticon emoticon emoticon

It's just become a habit to track my food, especially. My current streak is 1901 days, back to the end of 2014. Wanted to keep the streak going so tracked four days in 2018 while in the hospital with a broken leg! I'm very competitive with myself and can't bear the idea of breaking the streak.

It's a mindfulness thing for me. It's very easy for me to get off track when I'm not paying attention. In maintenance, consistency is crucial - when I'm not paying attention, the scale creeps up and my clothes get tight. Checking in is one easy way to keep my goals front of mind.

Starting Weight: 268 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

Because of YOU!

emoticon 3-13-2020 Sad to say our world here in Vegas, is closing down. Casinos, buffets, My favorite Nature Preserve & my performances, until further notice; schools still open. Some children need to go to school for food. emoticon I am keeping a sunny side up & spreading joy when ever I can! I KNOW you are too! emoticon Better safe than sorry, right????

I hope to get out to at least walk today, we have had as much rain in the past 2 days, as we usually get for the year, YIKES!!!!

Stay safe everyone!!!!

It's the most positive nutrition oriented site I've encountered. Plus I can log my nutrition and exercise and see nutritional feedback.

Sparking every day is a form of SELF CARE for me!


Jesus take my life and lead me on.

Have fun and no regrets. Make memories and love without fear. Enjoy life because in the end, the journey is the destination.

I just came across this board and question - I have been checking in everyday with SP for over 7 years. I may stray from my goal weight but I always come back because of the inspiration I receive from others on this site. I have always written down what I eat and how much water I drink a day so that I know what is going on with my diet - (not the losing weight kind of diet but what I eat diet). SP has obviously worked for me or I wouldn't be so devoted. Checking in now is not even an option, it is a lifestyle. It is just part of what I do in my life.

The more time I spend on SP, the less time I spend on thinking about what I can eat,
Hence, 7 lbs so far. emoticon

I agree with SHOREVIEW!

My sharing: 1-26-2020 Yesterday I went to an awards show for the volunteers the Nature Preserve. I've been there doing my performances for 4 yrs, now! Over 500 hours, LOVE it! It feels so GREAT to give, in this way. The awards are just a way of feeling apart of the group. There are 145 volunteers, now!! When I started 4 years ago there were only 60 of us. The Preserve is growing quickly, & beautifully!

On my hike before awards. The sky was SO pretty!!!! 65 degrees!

I find checking in helps keeps me focused and mindful of the task at hand. I have found tracking food and fitness helps me balance out my meals with the nutrition reports...i.e: oops...too many cabs, not enough protein...OR...geez why are my fats so high in the report. Ahhhh hidden fats. Also it's a great reminder to think and drink water! I feel actually logging on the computer unleashes more benefits than the phone app allows AND it keeps me from binging at night while I track my progress. Go for the premium....it's a small price to pay and it's well worth it.

Sparkpoints, streaks, updating my status, staying in touch with groups, logging my food and fitness. A little bit of everything about Sparkpeople keeps me coming back. I just enjoy the site.

emoticon 1-14-2020 emoticon emoticon Making crock pot turkey, today! I have butcher cut a frozen turkey up into 1/4, defrost & cook each section, when I'm in the mood. It is in strange shapes, but so yummy. I'll bake yams, too. Salad & broccoli tops it off! I LOVE our crock pot & toaster oven, I can cook complete meals with those 2 items. Although we have a full kitchen. Great for sandwiches & soup, later! Try it, hassle free! Have a healthy day & I will too!

I love to read what everyone is up to, and check out new ideas and recipes. Seeing others struggle and keep going gives me motivation. I have belonged to Sparks for years and only succeed when I am totally involved in the whole community. Good work Sparks!!
