Information from the videos. I also look at the recipes and read some of the articles. Just to keep my hope up and move one foot in front of the other on a daily basis.

YOU!

emoticon emoticon JULY! 7-31-2020 Yes! A day of easy miracles. AC maintained, today. Good thing! We get it done about every 9 months. Change filters about every 6 weeks. It runs almost daily! Lucy IS better, daily. Soft foods for another 8 days. Tomorrow is a hiking day, depends upon if I can get out at sunrise. Only going down to 85. High of 115 today & tomorrow. I need to be careful, last time I got caught in the heat! Date night tonight, too. Not sure plans yet. Busy at work! Be the health you want with what you have to work with & I will too. !



(this photo was sent to me, it is from 1962 or so. My Mom & BDay girl, at our marionette theater. We had approx. 10,000 BDay children over the 19 years! I love celebrating BDays!)

My SP friends! emoticon

emoticon 7-23-2020 I buy rotisserie chicken at Costco. $4.99. I can not beat the price! IF I cook 1 it is more costly, cleanup (water waster) & time consuming.. They can be high in sodium. I don't eat the skin. We use in 'taco salads', on sandwiches, chicken salad, plus when almost done I make soup from all the bones & skin, etc. After I cook it, de-bone it & put into refrigerator. I can then, skim of the fat. I make us & our dog, soup, she gets her own, with out any spices. I add SO many veggies & a little whole brown rice, it lasts for many meals. I freeze some too. I can & do live on this stuff! emoticon

SparkPeople's food tracker is a powerful tool for me. My eating plan does not require me to log foods, but when I do it makes me much more aware of which foods have better weight loss potential and which are holding me back. Logging also helps me remember to eat more fiber (veg and fruits especially). SP is also a positive space in our crazy world.

For me, logging in and spinning and logging all food is accountability to my self. I am on the down journey (again, after illness and lethargy). It is sort of like a recovering alcoholic needing an accountability partner.

7-3-2020 Sunny & hot (104). I swam for almost an hour today. emoticon Walked LUCY, before heat hit, emoticon park was beautiful. Put away ALLOT of fruit from yesterday's Sam's club adventure. Many organic veggies, too. DH gave me dark chocolate covered strawberries for my B Day. We will be BBQing tomorrow, turkey burgers, asparagus, maybe turkey hot dogs. Already made my 'famous' cold slaw. Low fat, & yummy. DH loves it. Apple pie for the 4th & my B'day.
I have been adding things to our back yard. A silk flower on one of our statues, LOL! Also, our park has tiny pine cones, I picked up several & am using as a ground cover in a spot that is strange shaped. Smells wonderful. Hope you are all staying happy & safe, too!

What keeps me here is the number of teammates who lose weight, quit checking in and then end up coming back to start over at a higher weight.

My SP friends!

emoticon 6-29-2020 Today I have been going through our home & gathering 'things' that can be outside to put into my garden. Should be fun, I have so many beautiful things. Time to move the energy. Also, yesterday we had 35 MPH winds, at 105 degrees. I spent the morning cleaning branches & etc. from the yards. And about an hour, swimming, (cleaning, actually) the pool. What a big mess. There were so many yellow/orange wildflowers all over the top of the water, with the sun streaming through, it was actually so very beautiful! I should had taken photos! Happy new week everyone!

(photo of tall desert wildflowers that floated into pool. I keep them to feed the birds)

emoticon 6-22-2020 Today is 3020 days of Sparking, EVERYDAY!

It is going to be 111 degrees today! Did a lot of errands before the heat. The pool temp is 89, YIKES! Talked to my beautiful Mother, today. She may have to move, after 19 years. She is 91 & lives 6 hours away. I can't visit, our states are locked down. Plus I need to be home. Hope it doesn't have to happen, but whatever is best for her & her health. Father's day was simple & sweet. LUCY doggie gave her 'dad' a card. (We were never blessed with children of our own.BUT have many children to love!) I had 3 father's. I loved them all! Here is a photo of 1 of them. he was a minister. A VERY great man!

I had a bad weekend a couple of weeks after I started and almost threw in the towel, but I dug deeper instead, and now this has become second nature! I am feeling pretty good and losing but not as fast as I wish I could. I know that I could gain it all back in a weekend binge so I must and I will stay on track by counting all my food even the items that are not "health" food so to speak.

Slowly but surely I will attain and pass my goals!!

The interaction with SP friends!

emoticon 6-17-2020 THX to all of you, for your support & good wishes for my DH birthday, yesterday. We had a blast! I made it a party for just the 2 of us. Candles & all. We are social distancing. He is just learning how to Text, on his new 'smart phone'. SO many people sent good wishes. Made him feel really good, me too! Dinner was a HUGE success. Lot's of veggies & chicken. Lemon pie for his 'cake'. Today I swam; walked Lucy dog; cleaned house; gardened; & worked. Before the 'real' heat hits! It is beautiful today, only 90. Feels great to be alive today! Hope you are all doing well!

make a wish!

I check in because no one else is going to do it for me. (Sounds silly, but legit think about it!) I need to hold myself accountable, and I need the extra boost of encouragement and kindness through my process.

I really love the daily coaching topics. It gives me time to reflect on my goals, assess my progress, and gives me one thing to focus on. Some of the sessions I’ve watched many times!

I sometimes leave Spark for months at a time, but I always seem to come back. It’s so positive, and the “small-goals-really-add-up” approach makes it easier for me to take this journey one choice at a time.

I lost a lot of weight in 1999. I reached my goal weight and maintained it for a few years, but I’ve spent the last 15 years or so yo-yo-ing up and down. I never gained all the weight back, thankfully, but I’ve regained about 40 pounds three times now. Sometimes I do WW, I like their new program and I like the daily/weekly/fitness points idea. But right now, I need to take things one day at a time. I don’t need one “bad” day to impact me for a whole week. I like that counting calories with Spark makes it easy to just start fresh each day.

support, recipes, points keep me challenging myself,
I had gotten to my favorite weight and maintained a few years, but then an ms exacerbation required more than a month of high dose steroids. I never quite got that weight all off. The last three or four pounds wouldn't leave. Then we were invited on a luxury art collectors' cruise and I ate and drank all day every day for over a week and gained another couple of pounds. Then we did some additional travel on our own before coming home and, well once again I gained a couple pounds. Then the holidays hit and I wasn't as careful as I usually am and gained another pound or two. Finally, coronavirus lock down happened and I started cooking more and eating more. I think that eating is under control, but not before gaining yet more weight. So, at the moment I want to lose about 14 pounds. Recording food and exercise is really a good way to keep myself in check. So, I came back about six weeks ago. Getting a grip on my habits and think I've turned a corner. So far I've lost only about 2 pounds, but that is ok. I am confident the rest will come off with time and effort and those habits that are healthy.
SP is a great friend to be locked-in with! Thanks everyone!!!

Becoming the healthiest me that I can be.

Sparkpeople .com is the BEST place to get ongoing support, recipes, health information from professionals, did I say support?


Over 10 years using sparkpeople.com I have made progress controlling my cravings and managing my foods. This did not happen quickly but the changes I have made are long lasting. I have kept almost 40 pounds off. I see no reason why I won't continue to make progress. Many friends and family members go for the gold, lose weight rather quickly and later gain it back. No behaviors were changed.

I started a team about the problems of Evening Eating. the team is going strong. It was very time consuming to get the team going, but now members count on each other. It is delightful to see!

I recently used the NOOM program for 6 months. Not bad but lacks the strong social ties of SP. Lately, I have been using Lose It to record foods and exercise. Not bad. But the social interaction is awkward. Their teams don't seem to last very long. Long, long ago I went to WW for years! But sparkpeople.com I can contact friends any time day or night. No traveling to meetings. It surely has worked for me. OK 'nough said.

chris


I have to be diligent about caring for myself. MINDFULNESS NOW. Build habits to produce success. First habit: delay eating by using a timer.
LONG TERM GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight.

I've known this site the longest and find it the most motivating out of any nutrition and fitness tracking websites I've used. Tracking my food really helps me. I would definitely over- and under-eat if I didn't count calories. Having the sense of accomplishment of inputting my workouts into the tracker and seeing how many calories I burned for the day also motivates me to work out. And I do like collecting Sparkpoints!

As you hold on... as long as you do what's in your heart... I believe you can do the right thing.

The food tracking really helps me see what I am really taking in each day. The points really help motivate me to do activities, connect and learn. The challenges and "streaks" are helping me to be here every day.

emoticon 4-28-2020 THX Peaches11: Great info about cat's claw being an herb & usually grows in rain forest. Interesting it is in our back yard. The area it grows IS very rain foresty. Lot's of humidity, because of the pool & watering system. Under palm trees. We actually planted it on the fence backing up to the park. Didn't want kids coming over it. Seems to work. The area I am clearing out, I didn't know it was growing there! Truly amazing plant. I 'worked' another 150 minutes, today. 3 more feet. PLUS found the water control 'hole'! Been looking for years! After walk with LUCY & before the heat hit. About 6:30 am. I sure am getting exercise! Mostly like pulling ropes. GREAT core workout. I'm back to work, (inside). Not sure this is very interesting to you, but it IS what I am doing! Be happy everyone! & I will try, too!

My energy because of better health!

emoticon 4-27-2020 I've been adding A lot more minutes, gardening. emoticon emoticon It is AMAZING how much 'cats claw' has taken over part of our back yard & the neighbors house, from our side!! The vines are an inch thick! I DO need to get out at sunrise if I'm going to tackle that plant again, it IS huge & spreads EVERYWHERE! emoticon 180 minutes of gardening! Glad my 'core' is strong!

First, I walked LUCY dogie emoticon . Then I got our raw veggies packed, rainbow carrots; asparagus; celery; snow peas; for my 'grab & go' even though I don't go out much, these days. I still eat them for lunch or snack. (Turkey jerky; hard eggs; or celery & peanut butter, too) emoticon Made our GREEN drinks, breakfast. Also made Lucy her favorite 'soup' veggie & chicken. emoticon The temps are going up. It's 96 today. 102, emoticon tomorrow, only down to 77. It was 67 high LAST Monday! I am being VERY adaptable emoticon with our life right now. Plus working, of course! Sharing a little with you! emoticon Be happy & safe!! AND I will try, too! emoticon emoticon

emoticon 4-15-2020 I made a BIG batch of veggie soup with a little chicken. Using up the fresh veggies before we can't eat them. I make a special batch for LUCY dog, too, she loves it! No spices, dogs can't have onions, garlic, mushrooms or chocolate, ALL deadly to dogs, just in case you didn't know!! I make the BIG batch, (about 1.5 gallons) put her's into her container, THEN, add the spices to ours. I do add a little mesquite smoke flavoring for taste. Makes it REALLY amazing, deep flavors! I add whole grain brown rice noodles, too! I think I'll make whole grain corn bread for the soup tonight. I add jalapenos to it, YUMMY! I'll freeze several quarts, for another time. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

My 'new' friends!

emoticon 4-14-2020 Today I have been catching up with DH business, as we learn to adjust to this online, everything. emoticon We are doing good. A LOT more cuddly &. LUCY gets longer walks, well, at least as long as she wants! I bring her home, brush her & go out for a longer walk around the neighborhood. Remember to have fun!

A Humming bird came to our upstairs window & 'played' with me for several minutes. SO PRECIOUS!!!! I kept talking to her. No photos, but MAXIMUM fun! Be safe & I will too!

Everyone here!

emoticon 3-26-2020 My hair guy's shop closed. But he invited me to his home (we can visit people with up to 9 people) & he did my hair last Monday (just the 2 of us). He cut it VERY short (for me), just in case. Our state NV isn't on total lock down, yet. But I have been VERY careful or not going out for several weeks, now. Washing hands, masks, gloves, hat, etc.... I put hand sanitizer on top of the gloves & mask, too. Just as an extra protection. So when I DO have to venture out, I can feel a little safer. I have been keeping 10 feet away for everyone, again for several weeks.Check out GINASPARKS3 blogs. She has been living through it for several months, GREAT info! Once I started reading her, I immediately followed her advise. At first people thought I was weird, they don't now!

I think THE most important thing to do for our health is to 'play', whatever that means for you! emoticon emoticon . I've been taking photos around our yard; editing photos; cleaning closet spaces; cooking & trying new recipes; coming to Spark land more often, etc. Finding the JOY in life, as it changes, daily! How about you? emoticon Stay happy! emoticon

(thx IAMJETTA for photo!)

emoticon 3-25-2020 I realized 3 months ago was Christmas! AND 7 months to go before the next one! emoticon I have kept my little Christmas tree up. It makes me feel good to see the little twinkle lights. As we are getting more & more locked into our lovely homes, I am trying to find ways to be joy FILLED & exercise, as in walking. I usually do 3 miles a few times a week. Today the wind is going to be 35MPH. So I took Lucy dog, out early. She was happy to get out. She DOES have a nice back yard, but not the same!

Also, communicating with family & friends through the internet. Doing things that bring me joy. Taking photos, is 1 thing I love! NOW I have time to edit them! We usually work out of our home & still are. But things have changed for us, as I am SURE they have for you! Let's just keep our sunny side's up!

IF you want to read blogs from SP, GINASPARKS3; she has/is living through it, today is her 62 day! Check out her blogs, she is a GREAT emoticon for all of us!

(Lucy watching her version of TV)

(I took photos of SPRING in our paradise back yard this last Sunday. REMEMBERING my bliss!)
