I haven't done this in so long. I've been in a dark place for a while now, but I'm climbing out of this cave and ready to face the world again. I have issues, hubby has issues and such is life. We did not go on a vacation we planned because of s... Read more

Broke my Spark streak. Time seems to get away from me. I know I can continue even if I don't sign in, but to me, that's part of the accountability. But that's OK. I just pick myself up and start again. After all, it's how we finish, not how... Read more

I see a lot of people asking for suggestions for a reasonable snack. Something we all need. I find that something warm helps curb my appetite better. A hot cup of tea is great, but sometimes I need a bit more. That is where soup comes in. ... Read more

So it's about a week since DH and I committed to be healthier. We both did good as far as eating. Some snacks, but they fit into our calories for each day. The first full week is always the hardest for me. It's like a test run, but it went w... Read more

I listened to a video blog recently where the topic was staying aware of yourself and others within your circle of friends and family. She was recently surprised by the actions of a good friend of hers. Sadly, the signs were there and she didn... Read more

I am hoping to adopt a more vegetarian diet. Not sure if I am ready for vegan yet, but I am not ruling that out. I have been so lazy when it comes to taking care of myself. For years now. The usual high blood pressure and high cholesterol, p... Read more

Another chance to get back on track. As long as my stomach works right. LOL I read a post asking what caused us to gain weight and need now to lose it. My current situation was caused by illness and medication and still presents a challe... Read more

Sounds silly right? To be glad I screwed up on what I ate? But wait - I can explain. Tuesday is hubbys day off. We usually run around doing errands and have lunch or dinner while we're out. I actually had planned on what I might have ... Read more

This is the best month I've had in a long time. I wasn't perfect, but life isn't perfect. I'm not trying to be perfect every day. That's way too hard and too much pressure. But overall, I've done well, saw some progress and have not undermin... Read more
Another late, late night.

Oh dear. I am just getting started again and am already facing a challenge. I have trouble sleeping. The past couple days my whole schedule is upside down. This often happens and I deal with it. Well, last night I ended up being incredibly ... Read more

We all know how bumpy our roads can get. Mine seems to have been washed out for a spell. I am ready to do this again. I was going to start on the 4th but was already sidelined for a bit. But I am back. I can do this. I made a few cha... Read more
Taking the bull by the horns
Friday, July 25, 2014 2 comments
I must be the most inconsistent person on Spark. It's time to take the bull by the horns and be more responsible. Since I had pneumonia, it has been hard for me to get back to the level of health and exercise that I was at. I know it's a... Read more
A Tribute to my Dad
Saturday, June 14, 2014 0 comments
Today is Father's Day. A day that I think of my Dad. Really no different than any other day. My Dad was a man with many facets. Depending on who you were, he was a father, husband, boss, friend. He was quiet, funny, reflective, adoring... Read more
