NOW I REMEMBER WHY . . .
Saturday, October 24, 2020      4 comments

I don't personally have a treadmill--doubt I ever will. I have a dear friend who has "jogged" on her treadmill for years and swears by it. She has stayed fit and trim through the birth of 5 kids and several other pregnancies as well. And . . ... Read more
DODGING LANDMINES
Thursday, October 22, 2020      4 comments

Did a bit of that today and went back to some things that help me dodge those landmines: 1) Boiled eggs, peeled and refrigerated (ready for high protein snack on the run if needed), 2) Sugar-free Jello made (when I need to confuse the sweet ... Read more
LOGIN SPIN
Monday, October 19, 2020      2 comments

I have a love/hate relationship with it. Logging in does absolutely NOTHING for moving me forward. HOWEVER, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE SEEING THE NUMBER OF LOGIN DAYS ADD UP!!! So it really bothers me when I miss a day and lose that WONDERFULLY LONG S... Read more
BRISK BEGINNINGS . . . OR RE-BEGINNINGS
Saturday, October 17, 2020      2 comments

Somehow or another, I think I've dodged the terrible pain bullet that I was expecting after the nerve block wore off. I'm starting to feel like my normal self again . . . can't wait to get this drain out next Wednesday. I DO know that the more... Read more
TO DO, OR NOT TO DO?
Thursday, October 15, 2020      3 comments

I guess much of life requires this decision, but I have found it to be important in the Spark journey. There are lots of activities that even our Challenges encourage us to do, especially in communicating and encouraging our Spark community. W... Read more
ANOTHER SURGERY?
Monday, October 12, 2020      3 comments

Yes, indeed! For those of you who've known me for a while, last spring/summer there was only one thing I knew needed to be done--removing/replacing the old ruptured implant from my post-mastectomy reconstruction in 2002-3. But last year was qu... Read more
MY MINI JOURNAL

This has been a habit in progress, which first began simply as a way to track my BP. After a few challenges, I realized I needed a place to log my to-do'... Read more
2020 FALL CHALLENGE PLAN
Saturday, October 10, 2020      2 comments

How can it be Fall? I still haven't figured out where Summer went!!! Changing things up a bit: MY PLAN: 1) EXERCISE PLAN: I typically try to keep my daily Fitbit step count at 8,000/day (just because that helped me maintain my 2014 we... Read more
Reflections/Corrections
Saturday, October 10, 2020      1 comments

I may ramble a bit . . . but just need to get some thoughts down. Seems I've really been struggling every since the beginning of the year. STATESIDE CHALLENGES: Right now we are Stateside, which always has its own set of struggles. We ... Read more
SUMMER CHALLENGE ADJUSTMENTS
Tuesday, July 07, 2020      6 comments

I'll begin by making a confession. I've become a bit of a social media hermit during the Spring Challenge. I really have become largely silent, because social media has just been exploding with so much negativity and criticism. It breaks my h... Read more
Phone Flat BellyApp
Sunday, April 26, 2020      2 comments

So, I was asked what phone app I use, and I don't see many ways to attach a pic. Floor exercises are what I absolutely dread . . . but once I get going, it's easier. And I always find, it's the number one thing that makes a difference. If exe... Read more

SURPRISE! SURPRISE!
Saturday, April 04, 2020      2 comments

Well, I don't like change. I know it's good for me. But I always have to suck it up and adjust when it comes my way. 4 challenges I've been on the same team, but for some reason I missed seeing it come through this time. I MISSED IT! So, I'... Read more
I SEE THE LIGHT!
Friday, October 11, 2019      3 comments

This has been a long, slow journey of recovery. I typically recover quickly from surgery, but this one has been different. I think my body was so run down from the 2 months with the spleen dying inside me that it just couldn't recover as quick... Read more
POST-SURGERY REFLECTIONS
Saturday, October 05, 2019      3 comments

So . . . I'm adjusting to a lot of things. The car accident had lacerated the spleen, and the trauma surgeon embolilzed it, supposedly to save it. Unfortunately, it began a long process of dying--hence the excruciating pain that wouldn't let m... Read more
