day 100 of my streak for "Track food or water" earned 1/25/2018
I was motivated to make my own açaí bowl this morning. Trying to use up what’s already in the house. Saving $ is winning!
This is a delicious, healthy and easy dish. I love Posole but it is just too fatty. This is a perfect replacement.

is still madly in love with her guy after 37 years. He is a runner and this morning he ran past me shouting out that he would "put the kettle on" so we could a cup of tea after my walk. Cool Beans.
Walking is my therapy!
I’m down 18.2 pounds today. I’ve been recovering from the flu and pneumonia but still managed to check in daily and stay somewhat on track. I have been so hungry and have had a binge on sweets and junk food but today the scale made me happy.

Never was a dog person until she arrived. Best dog ever.
Avocado Toast topped with basil and strawberries for breakfast. All fresh from the farm and perfectly ripened. I am getting pretty excited for spring and summer crops to brighten up my life and my diet.
Used up the last of my organic veggies and made a chicken salad. Best part was the roasted baby bok choy! Crunchy leaves and buttery taste.
Oatmeal and fresh berries for breakfast make me happy. Today will be a great day.
Spring brings such beautiful flowers.

Feeling defeated this morning. I am not in control and ashamed.
Went all natural and I am liking it!
I love this pup more than any dog I have ever known. Our Lady is an amazing pocket pit bull.
I am feeling a little overwhelmed today. My mind is just not right today. I don't seem to focus for very long and I have a little anxiety. I have been cooped up for far too long. What about you?
Honoring myself this morning with an açaí bowl.

3 Days into my Daily Exercise Challenge and I am killing it. Recovering from a fall in June has been a killer but I am back on it...albeit slowly.
Cioppino is one of my favourite healthy soups.

This little burger stand brings back memories! I don’t eat them very often but I may indulge tonight!
Now it feels like Christmas! We will spend the next 2 days cooking our tamales and delivering them to the people we love ❤️ It starts with a great homemade red chile.
My favorites for Sunday! I’m down 10 pounds and feeling so motivated to make it to my goal, 50 more to go! I can do this thanks to you my fellow sparklers!
It’s just not right, I’m shopping in summer clothes because it’s 82 degrees outside and so many people have snow! C’mon California give me some winter for the holidays!
I love a pretty breakfast! It makes me happy
I come from a family of people who loved their food. They are all gone now. My mom is at the back in the pink shirt. I loved her so and her cooking was amazing. She did the best she could but I didn't figure out how to lose weight and really change my lifestyle until SparkPeople cheered me on.
Christmas decorating happened today at my house. Changing it up and put the tree in the kitchen. I’m using the location to remind me to enjoy the season responsibly and not make it about food.
I love old cars!

This is so good! I’ve been making it for all kinds of reasons and it is a hit wherever I serve it! Try it!
I really am going to enjoy this tonight. Plastic stemless because I have been a klutz for days. Don’t judge.
I definitely need to get a little rust-eze for my old knees.
Best low rider ever! My granddaughter is in love with this car and wants one like it when she gets a car. I need to be fit enough to cruise with her! #goals
My daughter bought this for herself but I use it any time I ca. It makes me happy. Lol
Vegetable egg cups with a pineapple salsa is making me happy this morning.

Downtown LA is so cool and the food diverse and delicious.
My Thanksgiving morning is off to a great start! Hope you all get a lot of exercise and eat well!
My girl’s doing a one handed cartwheel and is my main motivation for getting fit. She’s a bundle of love and movement!
I’m not wining tonight! I worked out and ate well so today is a good day
A best friend will always share her umbrella!
This is where I was first thing this morning! Hurts so good!
My dinner is so pretty. This is what 344 calories of delicious food looks like at my table tonight.
There is always beautiful blue skies behind all the clouds. I saw this as I was leaving work today and thought it worthy of sharing.

I am surprised how much I have been cooking and planning meals since getting serious with SparkPeople! I’ve also become obsessed with getting as many points as possible every day!
Made a Great Pumpkin Chili for dinner with cornbread crackers and shared a beer with my guy. Now that’s a Friday night! It’s been a great week.

California problems...where do I put my surfboard.
Today I made an Okinawan dish called Taco Rice. It’s basically a taco 🌮 on a bed of rice with taco meat flavored with the addition of soy sauce. It is always a hit and I have a happy and satiated family. If you’ve never tried it you should. It’s quick and easy and on the table in about half an hour. It’s easy to control the calories because you can put what you want in the bowl.

I pruned and fed my 🌹 roses and spent time outdoors this week. It feels good to be active and getting my rose garden sorted out was such a great use of my time. I like how the dirt looks turned over!
Walked over 10k steps before noontime! First time in a long time I have had this much success! Im feeling motivated. Thanks Spark friends for the accountability and encouragement.
Happy Halloween! It is one of the scariest movies I’ve ever seen. Trunk or Treat this year was creepy too! I’m not going to let the candy get the best of me this year! Promise.

I felt so energized today. First time in a long time I could walk 2 miles and spent time gardening in my rose garden. Happy Sunday.
Cooking makes me happy and coming up with a low calorie Egg foo young for breakfast was a success this morning.
