UPDATE 7/19/17 - Coming back a little earlier than planned from my Spark break.

UPDATE: 4/15/17 - Taking a Spark break ... through summer ... will be back posting sometime in the Fall.

Aloha - I'm DJ, a happily retired 63 year old Sparker of a few years, living on the Big Island of Hawaii, loving life, feeling blessed. Life Is Good! And, a healthy vibrant life (at any age) is BETTER! So, here we are just days away from the start of a New Year ...are you ready to join me and WELCOME 2017??? I ask myself (and maybe you might also) what will be different this year?
For me, the difference will require taking charge, making a true lasting change in my health and weight loss. To achieve this I will make good choices rather than repeat past poor behaviors and habits. It will mean applying and living all I have been learning in the past few years about health, nutrition, and exercise as well as exploring and BEING OPEN to learning and trying something new. Who knows? Maybe I've yet to find the best way to live in my most vibrant way.
I'm READY to get started!!!! I'm looking FORWARD to 'CHANGING FOR THE BETTER' in this new year!!!!!!! How about you? Ready? Let's get to it!!!!

    Thanks for stopping by my Nope, Nope blog. I used to have a wonderful meal planner book I made with all the nutritional values in it. It got misplaced in the move never to be seen again. I asked my sister if she knew where the book I made for my mom was but that too got lost when mom moved in with her. Lots and lots of work went into making those books. I suppose I can start again. After all, what is time for.

    They loved the tattoo. They didn't really think I would ever get a tattoo. I have teased about it for at least 10 years. So they were surprised but not surprised as I do the unexpected quite often. They've seen me do things that most moms would never do for their kids.

    I love that you thought I would have a small tattoo! Glad I could surprise you. Today I surprise my kids and grandkids at the surprise birthday party we are throwing for our eldest grandson. I can't wait to see their faces. Should be lots of fun.

    Working on Dr. Gundry's Plant Paradox, unless there is some major new scientific evidence I hope this is the last big change in my nutrition plan. I'm ready to get a few more off! Maintain but move on to other interesting things in life. More time visiting friends!

    Yes! Every day is a weekend day to me since I retired. Only difference with weekends is that we see the kids and grandkids. They work during the week and go to school so weekends are still special.
