Well, it's here again. Darn snow! I'm not a winter sports person, so I'm not excited to see the snow. I don't see an opportunity to ski, or snowboard, or get out on my sno... Read more

I was puttering around in the kitchen today, preparing food for our RVing weekend. The TV was on in the living room … I wasn’t watching it; it was just on for company. There was a rerun of ER on; don’t have any idea what the episode was about,... Read more

Today is my birthday. In looking back over the 55th year of my life I’m happy to report I am much happier, healthier and wiser that I was a year ago. Not only have I lost quite a bit of weight, but I have learned a lot about nutrition, exercis... Read more

The Real Numbers

Someone asked me recently why I don't show "the real numbers", my actual starting and goal weights, on my weight ticker. The answer is simple; I lost most of my weight pre-spark, and my weight ticker shows what I have lost since being with spar... Read more
My Trouble Goal ...
Tuesday, June 03, 2008      1 comments

Sodium ... I've never really given it much thought. I don't put salt on my food and if it weren't for salt being called for in baking recipes I wouldn't ever use it at all. The other day there was a challenge on the SP Swimsuit Boot Camp to ke... Read more
