Spark Activity Tracker - not a bad first day
Monday, April 13, 2015      0 comments

Over 7000 steps today. Not bad for just an average work day. The only thing I find confusing is the 10-minute minimum to be counted as a workout. I took a 30-minute walk at lunch today, and nothing counted as a workout. I really like seeing how ... Read more

I got my Spark Activity Tracker set up today. I love the online tracking, and I'm amused by the little pop-up message that tells me when I've walked 4 more steps. :) I think the ability to monitor my steps by hour is going to be great. It... Read more
30-day weight loss challenge - Day 2
Tuesday, March 03, 2015      0 comments

I had oatmeal with cranberries and cinnamon for breakfast (fiber with less sugar than usual) and green tea instead of my second cup of coffee. That wasn't the best decision, as I've had a headache all afternoon/evening. I roasted cabbage, cauli... Read more

“Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.” ~Peter Drucker I'm in nearly the same place as I was in April of last year. I have made a bit of progress in that I'm walking nearly every day for a half ... Read more

Something on the site caught my eye earlier this week, and I visited a Spark Team for the first time in several months. Not going to get real elaborate, but I want to record my status and goals so I can easily come back and find them. St... Read more
Feeling a bit frustrated tonight
Wednesday, August 29, 2012      3 comments

There just aren't enough hours in a day to do everything I want. Between exercise time, which was totally non-existent a few months ago, and tracking time, I can't keep up with Spark emails or figure out how to make this a more social experienc... Read more

A quick status update... - I've lost 9 pounds so far. - My fat and sodium intake are crazy. - It's hard to get in enough protein. - It's also hard to get in enough carbs, which really surprises me. I'd have said carbs were my d... Read more
