Second Day in a Row!
Monday, July 20, 2015      3 comments

I can't believe I am actually writing two days in a row, but I think I need to do so to be accountable. Today I rode the exercise bike AND stretched, something I need to do more. The stretching, that is. It DOES feel good! And I need to be ... Read more
ANOTHER New Beginning!
Sunday, July 19, 2015      4 comments

I haven't had much success keeping on task and can easily think I don't have what it takes. BUT, I have logged on to Spark for a bit over 200 days now, so that shows I CAN be somewhat disciplined. I have started exercising again as well as tr... Read more
A Brand New Month
Saturday, February 01, 2014      3 comments

I have an hour and twenty minutes left in the first day of the first month, and I am fairly satisfied with what I have accomplished. Not everything I wanted to, of course, but I did get the most pressing things done: baking for church tomorrow,... Read more
Big Plans
Thursday, January 30, 2014      4 comments

Well, I started the year out as many have: thinking THIS was the year I would "get everything right." Big plans for a new year. A new month. A new week. A new day. My problem is that I can get one area "right," sort of, but not more than on... Read more

id=1202 I am putting the link here, because I want to be able to find it after the first of the year! I really, REALLY need to get serious about "functional fitness... Read more
November Already??
Tuesday, November 05, 2013      2 comments

It's hard to believe that Christmas is next month! Christmas for me has always been a goal for "looking good." The trouble is, I don't start early enough! But now I am trying to concentrate more on eating better to feel better, especially gi... Read more
Where Does the Time Go??
Wednesday, October 02, 2013      7 comments

I can't believe it's been 14 months since I last posted! I wish I could say I have been doing great, but I can't. HOWEVER, I am making progress! My motivators are my mom and my hips. My mom was in the hospital yet again in March and has end... Read more
Yet ANOTHER New Start!
Saturday, July 28, 2012      4 comments

I've probably written before that seeing my mom's poor physical condition is an incentive to get into shape before it's "too late," but as is so often the case, when time passes since seeing it first-hand, the motivation also fades. This time, ... Read more
Streak Ending :(
Tuesday, April 24, 2012      3 comments

After eight straight days of 100 or more Spark points, the streak is broken. There are no more quizzes to take for 5 points, my wheel spins were low points, and I don't have time to read more articles and couldn't get to 100 if I did. It was f... Read more
Ready for a New Week!
Sunday, April 22, 2012      2 comments

I am going to get back to my WiiFit Plus use. I'd gotten a good start but had some knee problems and quit. Now my Wii Fit Plus team has some basic goals for each week, and I am going to get started using that. I find I need structure, so thes... Read more

Just back from a church women's retreat with the theme Perseverance. A very appropriate topic for those of us trying to develop healthy habits. Of course the main idea was to persevere in all the trials we encounter in our daily lives, knowing... Read more
Day 3 of 100 Points or More!
Wednesday, April 18, 2012      2 comments

It's kind of a game now - another streak! I have some Internet talk on as background as I read or record, so it doesn't seem like it takes as long. Still haven't made formal, written goals, but that might be after I finish writing. I have tra... Read more
100 Spark Points
Monday, April 16, 2012      4 comments

I am making this post to get 3 points and therefore a total of 100 points for one day! And this with only 7 points on the wheel and no "countable" bonus points since they were Spark Goodie Points! I am not always motivated to use the site a lo... Read more
Day 2
Thursday, December 08, 2011      4 comments

Things didn't go exactly as scheduled, but I did get my exercise in eventually. I am not sure the early-morning exercise routine will work every day. But my eating plan went well, too, AND I got a lot accomplished in the tidying and Christmas ... Read more

Our church women's group is having a retreat next spring with the theme of perseverance. I guess you could say I have persevered if you count numerous re-starts. But perseverance, to me, seems to imply keeping going and not giving up. I am NO... Read more
