First Time: 200 Spark Points Today!
Friday, June 16, 2017      4 comments

In all these years, I've never achieved 200 spark points in one day. I have VERY few lazy, hazy days like today and when I do, walking 25,000 ste... Read more
25K Step goal today
Friday, June 16, 2017      3 comments

I'm at 20K right now and WILL make it to 25K before I go to bed. There's no particular reason except that my son posted 25,000 steps on Facebook a couple of weeks ago. It's not a competition, but I just thought I'd see if I could still do it. ... Read more
New Member Challenge
Saturday, June 03, 2017      7 comments

I love the SP challenges (usually 30 days or 21 days, etc). I joined the 21-Day New Member Challenge even though I've been around for some time. But, I believe it's important in any endeavor to go back to basics and revisit things learned (and s... Read more
Updated my page a bit
Saturday, March 18, 2017      2 comments

Updated my SP page today for the first time in a long time. I realized that some people actually read it. As of matter of fact, it's been read a lot. People often read it when I comment on their posts, which I do often now that SP has the commun... Read more
Streak still going strong
Saturday, February 11, 2017      3 comments

I'm up to a step goal of 10K steps a day now and I've met all my weekly fitness goals for several weeks now EXCEPT for the sleep. I'm still struggling to mange 6 3/4 hours per night. The journey continues.... Read more

90-Day Streak! Check!
Friday, January 27, 2017      0 comments

Finally, I have a 90-day streak of logging in and using the site. Because, that's the thing, when I log in I USE the site. And, when I USE the site, I succeed in getting healthier. I feel so much better than I did back in September when I reset ... Read more
Coming up on first 90 day streak ever
Wednesday, January 18, 2017      0 comments

I don't know why this is such a big screaming deal to me this time, but it is. There's something about milestones - setting a goal and achieving it, then moving on the next one. Feels like accomplishment. Feels great!... Read more
Tracking is my friend
Sunday, January 15, 2017      2 comments

When I had my colonoscopy I learned that I wasn't eating enough fiber. Who knew? I really thought I was. That's why tracking is so important for me. Just ran my daily report and I was 2 points shy of my fiber goal for the day. So, a small apple ... Read more

It takes one phone call
Saturday, January 07, 2017      2 comments

We had a lovely, light dusting of snow here today. No big deal, really. It was the pretty kind that barely stuck and caused no major delays or damage. That doesn't mean there weren't car accidents because there were. People in this area CAN NOT ... Read more
10,000+ steps today
Wednesday, January 04, 2017      3 comments

Yaaay. It really does get easier, day by day. This morning I had one of those 'OMG, do-the- Snoopy-happy-dance moments. I was washing my feet in the shower, by BENDING to them. I didn't raise them up to my hand, I was touching the bottom of my ... Read more
Almost back to 10,000 steps a day
Monday, January 02, 2017      1 comments

Re-started in September with a 7,000 steps a day goal, with 30 minutes of walking, to burn 2500 calories. Felt like a mountain of a goal back in September. I'm almost to 10,000 steps a day. 8,000 is my new step goal but most days I'm exceeding ... Read more
