Kumla and Day Seven
Friday, January 09, 2015      17 comments

Kumla, as I was told by DS's GF, is a Norwegian potato dumpling that her great-grandmother made and she just loves them. Since I am always making German specialties, I thought I would try my hand at these. I cooked a chunk of picnic ha... Read more
Let's clear the air
Thursday, January 08, 2015      20 comments

Most of yesterday's frustration stemmed from trying to find an application that didn't exist. I sorted through several piles of papers (yes, I am behind in filing) and a DH who insisted that it "had" to be here. I even scrolled on the we... Read more
The Rock, The Hard Place and Beck
Wednesday, January 07, 2015      19 comments

Today was so not the day for being in my shoes. Nothing seemed to go the way I wanted it do. I did sit down for breakfast but hurried out the door without letting my food settle. Morning snack at my desk, turned away from the computer... Read more
Day Six-Find a Diet Coach
Tuesday, January 06, 2015      21 comments

I talked with my SIL, who has been very active in WW for a very long time. She works across the street from me and we talk all the time. She thinks this may be a great buddy system for both of us. I read my cards twice and then once more... Read more
Day Five-Eat Slowly
Monday, January 05, 2015      16 comments

I think DS is wondering what is up with mom as I am eating even slower than I have before. DH can finish his meal in less than 15 minutes and I have always taken much longer. I choose not to rush so this exercise is fairly easy. I read... Read more
Day Four-Giving Myself Credit
Sunday, January 04, 2015      15 comments

Today was a feel good day. The cold weather let us just a little and even though we cancelled church, we found ways to sit in the peace and reflect on what the day was meant to be. We counted our blessings that the wind had died down, th... Read more
Third Day on the Beck Book
Saturday, January 03, 2015      17 comments

Sit down while eating. Well, not bad in theory and a habit that will take time but I did sit down most of the time. I am not in much of a habit to eat while standing anyway but I will still need to focus on this. I have written several c... Read more
Second day of the Beck Book
Friday, January 02, 2015      17 comments

Pick 2 diets, one as a primary and one as a backup plan. That was easy. I will stick with the Spark plan that I have followed for the last 6 years and track, track, track. Backup plan will be an old Weight Watchers book I bought at a boo... Read more
First Day with the Beck Book
Thursday, January 01, 2015      20 comments

I have faithfully read the first few chapters, several times, and today, I started on Day One and wrote 2 copies of my Advantages Response Cards. One set for in my purse and one for in the kitchen. I will probably read the one in my purs... Read more
This is the Year of "Me"
Thursday, January 01, 2015      16 comments

I don't make resolutions as most of them are pointless and fade quickly after the first few days of the year go by. But this is the one goal that I need to keep in mind. I need to devote more time to "me" and not just say it. I need to d... Read more
The NewYear is almost here
Wednesday, December 31, 2014      6 comments

The GC are playing games and I am quietly Sparking as the clock runs out on 2014. The last day of work seemed endless but we managed it all and came home early. I had a few chores to do and a client came by with a few questions. Then i... Read more
Well, my blog from yesterday must have disappeared
Tuesday, December 30, 2014      16 comments

I am not sure what happened but I will fill in the gaps. Yesterday was my 6th SParkversary and I have a pretty good idea what I wrote. So I will post most of it again. My new mantra is "It's My Life" as Bon Jovi sang It's my life It's ... Read more
Last Sunday of the year
Sunday, December 28, 2014      21 comments

It is hard to believe that we are almost done with 2014. The journey went well until sometime in late August or September. Since then, I have been battling with legal issues and oldest son, lots of health issues with DH and trying to car... Read more
A much quieter day
Saturday, December 27, 2014      19 comments

Little lady made it to the hospital and was discharged before the ambulance crew made it back to town. Back pain was severe but no need to stay hospitalized. She did have to stay until someone could come to take her home and that was this ... Read more
Excitement no end
Saturday, December 27, 2014      16 comments

Lots of excitement after Christmas. The weather man told us a pretty story about a light snow event and no warnings or watches in our area. We drive to see MIL and SIL and I try to shovel the sidewalk, thinking the snow is ending soon. 4... Read more
