Back slide big time!! Now I am in a funk with no one to blame but myself. I hate 12 hour days at work makes it hard for me to stay committed to eating right and I end up eating junk. That junk add up to 5lb gain in 2 weeks and now I am beating myself up about it. Still doing 12 hour days but at least I have a job so now to rty to figure out how to eat right and sleep right doing 12 hours a day!

You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great!... Zig Ziglar

Thank God in all things!

emoticon Down a fraction from last week. Not great but okay! The one thing I have discovered is that there is no perfect answer that works for everybody. Every person has to experiment and figure out what works for them. Sometimes a complete change from what you were doing will break a plateau.

Thank God in all things!

I'm not one to even consider fasting. I suggest you read on " plateau " . I also find a big difference for me to eat servings and not portions.... Exercise also helps and changing the routine of my plan is good too for me ( I have a 7 day plan that not one day is constitutive to the other) Whatever works may be different for each individual. I'd love for others to share their view ,,,

Stuck!! Time to up something either my cardio or my strength. Anyone got any input about intermittent fasting? Been giving it some thought to use as a little push.

I just joined this group. I'm feeling ok about my progress so far. Last week I saw a bump up in weight but I've also been doing some strength training so that may account for some of that. My clothes fit better and I'm more comfortable so it's not all about the scale! I have decided to not eat the max allowed of calories unless I'm having a very hungry day - I'm shooting for about 150 calories below max.

Sounds like your new place will be a perfect match for you! If I had any advise, through your stress, it would be MORE WATER! emoticon It helps me, anyway!

emoticon 3-29-21 So, YES! I am so happy to be getting back to my 'old' normal, as far as SP land goes! I've re-started measuring & that has helped! When I cook, I wear a mask, so I have to take it off, if I want to eat something. Little bites all day long, (SP coach talks about this all the time, I am finally listening!) REALLY kept me over goal! HAHA! Also increased exercise, watching my numbers on my START page, I've been here 3,300 days & never looked at it! I'm down another almost 2#, since Friday's weigh in. I eat ALLOT of veggies. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon But am adding more when hunger hits between meals, green tea emoticon as well as my regular water. emoticon Sorry to go on & on, but I've been waiting years to feel this way again! emoticon

The weather is beautiful, so getting outside is easier. Except the huge Pollen pods, I'm wearing double masks, so not to get it into my sinuses. There is yellow pollen EVERYWHERE in our neighborhood. It only last 2 weeks, but I want to get out side & garden. Patience is not that easy for me, but we live in paradise, can't really complain! emoticon

Another AT GOAL photo: 9-28-14 walking miles through Wild Animal Safari, San Diego CA 15 pounds to go to get back to it!!!! GREAT inspiration!

SPARKLINGME176: not easy but doable. I'm not doing as well as I should...

I have to take a serious look at my stress factors and act on my goals - which I did not meet this month. Wishing I was already all packed and moved! I will really enjoy the new place: I'll have a craft room again and there's a plug-in for my washer and dryer. These were my 2 essentials that I missed the most. I'll also have a pantry and dishwasher again. So looking forward to this. Even have 2 flower beds. emoticon emoticon I'm so looking forward to being all settled again.... emoticon

It's as easy as I make it. Have an action plan and commit to it.

emoticon 3-28-21 I DO seem to be figuring it out. For me it is about fun & frolic! More than having to exercise. emoticon emoticon AND eating GREAT energizing foods, emoticon just not too much of them! HAHA! emoticon In the past 12 days I have released 3.2 #. (since my emoticon Sparaversary). I did NOT like that I was over my goal weight, by 13-19# for several years. SO.... I have been REALLY focusing on every bite. Re -measuring etc. I've been eating REALLY good, since I joined SP, just too much. I also measured myself, first time in almost a year. 4" bigger in my hips. (Pilates REALLY works for me, with measurements) CHANGING-TURTLE pointed out to me, that on our START page, it shows how many calories I have eaten & how many I have burned up with exercise. I realized I have been keeping at my high calorie range, but exercise burning has been less. Focusing on this tiny key, has changed ALLOT for me this past 12 days. I am VERY proud of myself, saying no, more & more. REALLY listening to my body if I am hungry, or have exercised too much. I do that quite often. I have been eating at the lower end of my tracker AND added Sheppard Pilates, for strength. It IS working! I am playing at getting back to my goal, by Mother's Day trip to see my own. emoticon emoticon It has/is changing my life & other's around me. emoticon for being my SP friend & sharing your journey with me. I can honestly say, I couldn't do it with out you! On this my 3,299 days of Sparking, EVERYDAY! Have a blessed week, ahead! emoticon

Learning to learn!

emoticon 3-25-21 yesterday I re-started my Sheppard Pilates DVD. 2 yrs. ago I hurt my knee JUMPING in Zumba. emoticon I had a real fear emoticon of not being able to get off the floor, or worse, hurting myself again. I have been doing SP Nicole's 12 minute core workout, 3 times a week. BUT, my measurements (I measured myself today, could be a prettier picture! emoticon emoticon ) prove I need the floor exercises, too. I have been walking a lot more, instead. I know my heart & legs are strong. But for me, NOTHING helps my measurement like this Matt program. SO I hope to get back into it, 3 times a week. At this point I am only up to 22 minutes. But the full hour is in sight! I will take it VERY easy & not stress my body. I had not planned on sharing this with you, but it will help with my en-couragement! It WILL take courage on my part. I'm off to it, thx for reading! THX for your support! emoticon

emoticon 3-23-21 YES! Spring is HERE, in the SW! Yesterday I had my hair cut. emoticon My hairdresser, gave me a pink bunny & some" Peeps"(luckily I don't eat them, I told him I wouldn't but he said it's Easter. Splurge. I won't they make me feel awful!!) He is so wonderful to me. We have become friends. emoticon
Afterwards I went to Sam's club; emoticon asparagus; cauliflower (SO beautiful, it is like a pretty white flower! I will make pasta sauce with turkey meatballs, & put over the top of it, after I steam it. DH favorite! A little Parm cheese on top.) ; salads; yams; broccoli; bananas & huge oranges. A great day for fresh veggies! Greek yogurt & frozen mixed veggies. Then to local grocery store for organic bread; rainbow carrots; celery; potato; canned pumpkin; & turkey patties & things to round out meals. About 2 weeks worth of veggies! emoticon

I also 'played' at the dollar store. $6.50 I bought some silk flowers, daffodils emoticon & tiger lilies, & butterflies, to put into garden, while waiting for flowers to bloom. So fun, so pretty!


(photo from my friend, just before she gave her Spring equinox sermon! SO beautiful!)

LSIG14: I do know how you feel about progress. I have to remember easy does it. Finally, this week the scale decided to be my friend. I thought for a while it was broken ... it wouldn't bulge either way???

SPARKLINGME176 I love Mulberry trees - they give great shade.

SPARKLINGME176 and 10X I think we have all seen those up and downs in our journey. I now have to look forward again and never give up! I will win and you can too.

Great for you 10! That is kind of what I did, lost 50+ (2013) then gained back 15-19. Keeping it there. & it IS ok! I'm healthy! That's what counts!

emoticon 3-21-21 to 1 of my Fairy God Daughters! She is 37 years old. A LOVELY woman! Got to 'see' her on Skype. emoticon

Today is house cleaning. Laundry; bathrooms; kitchen, etc. The sun emoticon is out & it IS actually Springtime, here. Not much wind!

Unfortunately, our neighborhood, has MANY Fruitless Mulberries trees, (1 of my favorites) . For 2 weeks they spread thick blanket of yellow pollen, everywhere. These trees were planted in about 1975, when the houses were built. They are AMAZING shade trees. SO BEAUTIFUL. They are illegal to plant now & for about 20 years, because they cause such bad air quality. Even with masks, I can get some pollen into my sinuses. Not good for LUCY, either. With yesterday's winds, the pollen is EVERYWHERE. So IF I do go for a walk in the park, it will be double thick masks. I'll see how it goes. Welcome to Spring in the desert! I love living here, learning to adapt!

Have a great Sunday everyone!

I lost 50+ pounds by 2013, regained 20 within 5years (2018)... when the pandemic hit I was afraid I would start gaining more. I logged on for weekly weigh in and it worked! I maintained all this time.

Of course losing would of been fantastic~ but honestly I'm relieved I've kept 32 lbs off all this time.... celebrating 80th week of Sparkstreak 'weekly weigh in' today

emoticon 3-17-21 As of yesterday, I have been on SP for 9 years, 3,288 days EVERYday! I AM still wanting to get back to my goal weight. BUT I KNOW I will when I figure out how to deal with the stress level in my life. emoticon I am SO very grateful emoticon to have found this amazing way to my healing! emoticon Meeting so many wonderful SP friends, (I am not on any other social media) that truly understand how hard it maybe, to live the healthiest lifestyle possible! Through being positive, helpful, kind, compassionate & understanding. SP is THE place I can truly share the 'real' me, without feeling like I need to hide myself. AND the place I can support YOU! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon WONDERFUL years! Here is to the next 9! Have fun playing.... that is MY secret tip for you, reading this message. Just play! emoticon emoticon "Be the health with what you have to work with, and I will too!"

Pretty good about my health!

emoticon 3-15-21 When I went to Costco, I saw plants, but they are REALLY not for our desert area. Hydrangeas etc. Also VERY expensive compared to home depot. I'm starting to find, that Costco's prices are going up. A small pre-packed salad was $7.00! I can get the exact same salad at Sam's club for $2.50. So I am learning to be even a more cautious shopper, there. IF an item has a coupon, then the costs are REALLY low. I check on line before I go.

But it WAS a fun weekend! Playing with LUCY, hiking, time with DH as his neck starts to heal for reaction from vaccine #1, March 2. . I was hoping to get outside today but winds are 55 MPH. Just too much for LUCY emoticon & me. DH & I watched the Grammy's. Loved most of it. Taylor Swift, her nature theme was wonderful! My cup of tea. emoticon Didn't care for the ladies humping the stage. Strange for me. Are we the only 1's who feel that way? Also, there was no Rock & Roll artists, or Classical music, etc. Over all pretty good show considering the pandemic, of 2020! Have a GREAT week, everyone! I'm back to work!

(photo I took on Saturday's hike, pretty, right?

emoticon 3-11-21 Spark Coach asks me to listen to my body cues. My challenge is to stop eating when I still have food on my plate. But walking & exercising is so fun! I can 'play' for hours! emoticon emoticon Our dog LUCY just came in she wants to go for a walk. It's been a week since her tooth removal. Touch & go, most of the week. We are off to it! Have fun 'listening' everyone! & I will too!

emoticon 3-9-21 I, too love the feeling of tired mussels from a GREAT work out! I try to walk a 5K 3 times a week, up from 1. I drink a product called CALM, it helps me with mussels. I over cut my big toenail, yesterday giving myself a pedicure. So staying off it as much as possible. SO much to do, but I guess it's time for me to relax. I have several books I could start! LUCY emoticon is so much better, but I still have to give her her, meds, by dropper. At least she is eating on her own. I've tried putting them in her food, but then she won't eat it. Thrown out $30.00 of meds so far. It's all trial & error, right? I wonder how parents give them to their children that won't take them?!? Any ideas? Luckily she's almost done with them.

My DH got his first shot & has been 'down & unable to work" They shot him in his upper arm, near his neck The pain has been so bad almost a week later. He's been to chiropractor, nothing seems to help. Last time he got a vaccine, it was for pneumonia, 3 weeks later he was in hospital for 5 MONTHS with it. His body does not like vaccines!

I'm back to 'it'. Have a fabulous day everyone! emoticon

(you wanted to see my smile, here it is, just for you! Haha!)
