Shooting From The Hip!
Tuesday, March 01, 2011      2 comments

- In transition, it's hard to keep up with buying clothes. I've donated all my oversized clothes. I believe in what SP says about getting rid of them. Since October '10, I've gone down 2 sizes in shirts and 2 sizes in the waist. I've had to go o... Read more
Another First Day!
Monday, February 28, 2011      1 comments

I started my 5K Your Way Walk/Jog Program. I did the four minute walk then a one minute jog and repeated it 6 times instead of 5. I felt the need as I tripped on the sidewalk and fell after three rotations. It got me so mad, I rolled and came up... Read more

Never do a blog when you have just read blogs that take you to rage! I was already writing into the second paragraph when I decided to check a certain date. After I got my answer, I deleted all that I had written. I'm glad I took that extra step... Read more
Another Saturday Night

Hangin' at the Palm Harbor Blues n Brews Festival, listening to live Blues and eating very reasonable portions of collard greens and Chicken BBQ! I also had a cup of white wine sangria that had cinnamon in it. Deelish! Now it's off to a home gam... Read more

*I have to find out if I can do it. DRs told me I would be in a wheelchair at 45. What the hell do they know! I'm sixty and have done so many 5Ks walking in the last four months I've lost count. So I'm taking it up a notch. I just joined the SP ... Read more

...to inadvertently hurt someone's feelings here on SPARKPEOPLE. A response to a blog or an entry on a message board should try to be in the right spirit. If you flame on by someone's action, it's better not to comment. Firstly, you don't ... Read more
Quick Wii Story
Wednesday, February 23, 2011      6 comments

I bought my SP DW a Wii with Wii Fit Plus. I know she wanted it for two years now. So, needless to say, she is all over it for working out. I know it's fun as i watch and cheer from the sidelines. I stayed away from it. Then one night, I went th... Read more
A Quick Observation

If you start to zone in on your workout, it could become habit forming! Imagine, you are doing upper body, you're hitting lateral raises, and you focus on a perfect raise with a negative resistance slow return. I mean focused, visualizing t... Read more

I just added a photo of my granddaughter and I coming out of the water at Honeymoon Island today! I've mentioned that she is one of the two main reasons I made the turn to live longer and healthier. I can't imagine ever walking away from t... Read more

So here I am after going on a dinner cruise, and having a glorious time, a wonderful dinner (healthy too.), two Grey Goose dirty martinis and a Pino Grigio with dinner! What am I doing? My blog with a slight buzz! So much for practice what you p... Read more

...when you are ready to go off on something or somebody! Frustration, anger, disappointment, or your significant other decides to show off stupidity in world class form are just a few reasons to stay away from the keyboard. You will put d... Read more
Positive Waves!
Thursday, February 17, 2011      0 comments

I love when Oddball in Kelly's Heroes (If you haven't seen this 1970 classic, do it.) keeps referring to "Positive Waves." Over the years it's become a mantra of sorts to me. If I'm talking it, I'm living it, and I'm walking it. THAT is another... Read more
Strange Day

Got up early to check on a roofing quote I was supposed to get, got it, and called the contractor to start work. Shortly, a pool technician came to check my pool for a leak. They found it and started the repairs. The roofing people came and star... Read more
Time Really Does Go Fast! Don't Waste it!
Tuesday, February 15, 2011      1 comments

It's great to see others join SP. I want to tell everyone about what so many of us found. But I guess the beauty of it is that we are all different in a lot of ways, and so similar in others. I think it comes down to how bad do you want it and a... Read more
Valentine's Day Dinner at Seasons 52
Monday, February 14, 2011      2 comments

DISCLAIMER: DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS EVER! I went to Seasons 52 in Tampa. They advertise that every entree is no more that 475 cal. We are talking just the entree. I'll give an example of the other courses: Crab and Shrimp Stuffed Mushrooms Ap... Read more
