Decided to come back, but ease into Sparkpeople slowly. I'll track where I can, especially with the exercising and weight loss. I have started running again and want to get in shape for the Turkey Trot in November. Hope to see some of my old ... Read more

Today is my son's birthday party which will include cake and ice cream and salty snacks. I can avoid the ice cream & the chips, but you know how I feel about cake!! I am bringing a vegetable platter for ME to snack on. I doubt anyone else wil... Read more

I haven't found my rhythm yet, but I am going to try to do little things each day to get healthier. For the first time in months I had breakfast - feels good. I am going to shoot for 8 glasses of water today. Wish me luck!... Read more

I did one of my favorite things to do, today. I cleaned out a closet! I feel so satisfied and relieved. I took two huge tubs of dress-up clothes and got it down to one tub. I am giving a paper bag full of dress-ups to a good friend with... Read more

Today was my son's school picnic. Instead of bringing the usual carby fare, I brought nice veggie tray and rice krispie treats (which don't tempt me - no chocolate). I didn't eat the delicious looking brownies or mounds of potatoe chips. I to... Read more

Wednesday, May 27, 2009      0 comments

I heard on the radio yesterday that experts are saying that exercise does not have much to do with weight loss. I know this revelation probably has sent thousands of exercise gurus into a tiz, but anyone who can do math can figure this out. If... Read more

Well, it's time to get fit again so I am back, but not like I was. I am going to do this in 10 pound increments and I am staying away from the message boards and groups (except for a challenge group which will help keep me on check). I took on... Read more

Ok, so I am very excited about Governor Palin being added to the Republican ticket! It was a BRILLIANT move by McCain. No matter how you are going to vote - it was a BRILLIANT move. Now, I am on board with the ticket, even though McCain does... Read more
Too many changes

I have enjoyed my two days without both kids. Yesterday, I ran for 1/2 hour while the kids were in school. It is so great to have those 3 1/2 hours to myself each day. But, I am still feeling overwhelmed by some of the changes I am about to m... Read more

I just got the recipe book by Jessica Seinfeld, "Deceptively Delicious". I put butternut squash in my daughter's mac n cheese and she hasn't noticed a difference. I made oatmeal with sweet potatoes for my son - didn't here a peep about it. I ... Read more

I didn't think it would happen, but it did. In Saturday's mail, there it was - the invitation to my 20th High School Reunion! It is in exactly 2 months and it means that I HAVE to get my act together and lose this weight. I need motivation in... Read more
Practicing What I Preach
Friday, August 01, 2008      8 comments

As a team leader I SHOULD be an example of what one should do on sparkpeople to stay healthy. The reality is that I have been extremely negligent. I haven't been eating properly; I have totally avoided exercise; and I have been giving every ex... Read more

I've known for a long time that I eat out of boredom, so to combat the boredom I am taking up some projects. People who know me know that I hate very few things - I hate dogs; I hate milk; and I HATE crafts. I rarely do a craft in MOPS and whe... Read more
