Today I was at a luncheon meeting being served chocolate mousse with whipped cream. I wasn't tempted. I thank God for the victory. One day at a time.... Read more
A Little Jogging
Friday, May 18, 2012      1 comments

I started back to adding jogging to my regimen. I had stopped this winter after hurting my back. I love it that it's not a forced move, but my body automatically starts jogging. So I'm not timing it like I normally do, but just going with the fl... Read more

Checking In

I am so thankful that I put a pair of my larger pants on yesterday and they were still falling off. I wore them for a few hours with a pin, but eventually gave up and put on another pair. The exercising is working even though my eating needs to ... Read more
One Day at a Time
Monday, April 23, 2012      1 comments

It feels like forever since I have posted on Spark. I have been busy, busy and more busy. I have kept exercising (not as intense), but my eating hasn't been good. The problem is organization. I haven't had the same time to prepare meals and that... Read more
Going Meatless
Tuesday, October 04, 2011      3 comments

I said in my last blog that I was enjoying eating meatless and had extended my challenge which was 1 week out of a month. I was even able to cook meat for the family and not be tempted. But this Sat. after walking 6 miles, I was invited to lunch... Read more
Challenge Update

I made it through the week and then some on the Memphis Healthy Challenge that eliminates meat one week a month. I ate a piece of chicken at a party, but made up for it by adding a day. Other than that, I actually enjoyed going meatless. There a... Read more
A New Challenge

I joined the Healthy Memphis Challenge. We are to pick one week out of a month, for either one month, 3 months or 9 months to eat a vegetarian diet. I chose 9 months. I had already begun eating a vegetarian diet one day out of a week and had cut... Read more
Being Flexible and Loving It
Friday, June 24, 2011      8 comments

I'm realizing that I actually enjoy working out, but on my terms. When I follow a strict program that's limiting I either get hurt or burned out. It has been difficult as I have somewhat of an "A" personality, but I'm gradually learning to be fl... Read more
Tweaking and not Creeping
Thursday, June 23, 2011      4 comments

My workouts have been good, but my eating needs tweaking again. For some strange reason I have been eating sweets and salty snacks. It's not out of control or everyday, but I know I need to take control of it fast. So, I need to set aside some ... Read more
A Good Day
Monday, June 06, 2011      6 comments

Today I did interval running for 2 miles. This was a dramatic difference between the 4 to 5 miles I had been doing. I left today with energy and spark. The higher mileage left me in almost a depressed state and injured. I knew something had to ... Read more
Back to Reality!

Today I started back slow with stretching and later pilates after hurting my hip last Wed. Last week was my most intensive workouts in years, if ever. Yes, I overdid it, but I also learned a lot as I have been during my journey with SP. I... Read more
I Am A Runner!
Saturday, May 28, 2011      8 comments

I just completed walking a little over 4 miles today. I have been doing intervals, run/walking, but I decided to give my body a little rest today. It felt great just to walk, so I guess I needed to take it easy. I had been stressing it be... Read more
Getting Stronger
Saturday, May 21, 2011      5 comments

Today I went on a walk/run for 5 plus miles and it rained. Instead of getting alarmed I enjoyed the rain pellets splashing on me, except my glasses. I usually am very sore after these workouts, but today I feel great. I must be getting stronge... Read more
Surpassed Goal
Saturday, May 14, 2011      10 comments

Today I walked 5.5 miles with a walking/running group. We met at 5:45 a.m. This fitness activity has been gaining speed in my life lately. It seems like just 2 months ago, I had just started back attempting a slow run after 20 plus years. ... Read more
