It's not that I am getting older. I am 58 but about umm 42 in my mind. My body IS getting there! All my summer pants are not staying up even though I am about 2 lbs heavier than last year at this time. Last night at water aerobics we ended u... Read more
Feeling it.. Spark Spring Fever!
Wednesday, March 13, 2013      4 comments

I am in day 5 of my exercise spark streak. It surprised me that I woke up looking forward to exercising. I think Spark Guy had it right when he noticed how self motivating a streak can be. I've inadvertently had logging in streaks and food tr... Read more

We lost our "granddog" today. This beautiful girl had worked her way into our hearts like none before her. Just 5 1/2 yrs old is way too short a life. I hope she is playin... Read more
Setting goals
Saturday, December 29, 2012      3 comments

It is the time of year where we get a clean slate.. a fresh start. I didn't hit my goals for this past year, especially towards the end of the year. I will set those goals for this coming year and be positive about it. I did, after all, los... Read more

Been eating like a nervous whatever as hurricane Sandy approached and went over and by us. Hopefully I was conservative enough in the quantity of what I ate. Tomorrow will be me using the videos on here for exercising. WOOHOO! After ... Read more
Who is your positive influence?
Monday, July 23, 2012      3 comments

Mine is my neighbor of 24 years, Ann. She is simply contageous. I think when I first met her I didn't believe anyone that genuine existed. Actually on the first day we really met my then first grader (now days away from turning 30!) was du... Read more

Monday, July 02, 2012      6 comments

My daughter was married Saturday and it was hot as anything for our outdoor waterside event. The tent was set up and tables as well as the chairs when, on Friday night, a violent storm took the tent mostly down. There were tree branches everyw... Read more

I must have done something right over the weekend.
Monday, May 07, 2012      4 comments

I dreaded getting on the scale this morning. After all, I had been to 2 events and only got in one small workout. My calories yesterday were slightly over my goal. (Can a burger with blue cheese really be over 900 calories?) I started thinki... Read more
Teach an old dog new tricks?
Monday, April 02, 2012      5 comments

No.. it's not a blog about dogs.. I joined here almost 6 years ago with weight to lose but more to be a motivation to my husband who has had obesity issues which have led to heart bypass in his 30s and stints in his 40s and many more health is... Read more
Future birthday planning
Tuesday, February 28, 2012      1 comments

It's really more like WHY are we still following old traditions of cake at a birthday or wedding? My family keeps asking me what I want to do on my birthday. The girls have been used to going out for dinner to celebrate. I used to enjoy it bu... Read more

I had a Mammogram last month and got called back in today to do a follow-up. The radiologist took a couple views, looked at them and left, came back needing to do more. They next sent someone to do a sonogram on me and afterwards left me for p... Read more

I got up early and am reading along in Ellen DeGeneres's latest book when I come across this quote from a wise person, "Happiness is a journey, not a destination." I just might have to have a T-shirt made with that. They say the happiest peopl... Read more
B - Butterflies.. but
Friday, October 07, 2011      1 comments

So.. I didn't get around to my blog. Maybe once a week will help. I am usually good at fighting butterflies (nerves) but it's been hard. I am better now though. I keep up that negative self talk. It occurs I have been this way before every ... Read more
