Day 698 - M

Thursday, November 21, 2013

Just a last post to say good-bye to everyone who follows my blog. Love & hugs to all of you as we continue on with our journey to health. I'm not quitting by any means - but can't tolerate any website that instantly comes down with a heavy censorship hand without so much as contacting those who are involved. 1st Amendment violations are the way I see it. I have no quarrel with anyone here at SP. It's the site administrators and Orwellian policies that I take exception to. Not comfy with this one little bit.

Love to all of you,

Kathy emoticon emoticon

    I admire your honesty and drive. So far, I haven't
noticed too many occasions when censorship was
implemented but the few times I saw it, it was
justified. I don't know enough of this situation to
make an informed decision. I will stand by you.
I will certainly miss you so stay in touch another
way. HUGS!

They say that if one part of your body is injured, your whole body feels it. Just not feeling the love tonight for SP. One of my Sparkies suffered unwarranted penalties from SP that I find very disturbing. So, since one of my SP friends has been singled out for chastisement, I'm feeling it too. It doesn't make for happy campers.

Apologies for a negative blog, but I'm not going to be disingenuous. emoticon

Hope you had a wonderful Wednesday!! emoticon

  M'kay . . . I'll not name names either, but betcha lotsa sparky points that it's the same one I feel for too! GACK! Censorship has a place in this world, but shees, people . . . let's save it for things that are IMPORTANT. Ok, off the soap box, letting you know I agree.

HUGS and hope it's a better Thursday. Come to think of it, it HAS to be!

    How does this get around???With all the '''interesting''' things I see on here, I'm kind of surprised that anyone would be singled out. I've done some dumb things before that ..several years later...I regret, but no big censor going on. I'm dying to ask all the questions...but instead, best of luck to the friend. Keep Sparkin'!!!

"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other."

Abraham Lincoln

........................................
...............

Could it be said any better?? Once we make the decision to go on this SP journey and RESOLVE to make it a success.....there's no stopping us. No one can do it for us, we have the power, we're the ones who make this thing work. We're the ones who reap the rewards!!

........................................
...............

It's amazing what a good night's sleep can do for a person! Felt so much better today. It was another really busy day, as most of them are. Jetta & I went out on the trail. There was lots of debris on it from the big Sunday storms. Picked it all up and got the path cleared again for faster hiking.

Mileage: 9.35 miles
ST: core; upper body

Hope your Tuesday was great!!! Stay warm!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon

"Life is like a cash register, in that every account, every thought, every deed, like every sale, is registered and recorded."

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen

........................................
............................

Tonight I will share with you that I was involved in a very bad, life threatening accident on 22 May 1982. I had a near death experience (NDE) after nearly bleeding out internally from my spleen, which was ripped in half. Also had 6 badly broken ribs, a punctured left lung (from one of the broken ribs), a broken left elbow and the loss of 6 units of blood. At the time I was 8.5 months pregnant. Baby and spleen were removed by two separate surgeons. Not to worry, the baby turned out to be DS #1 who is now 31 years old. The point is....the 'life review' is very real - it did happen during my NDE, in addition to many other things. The accident? I was kicked repeatedly by a mare I owned, in her box stall. She planted her front feet, started screaming and began kicking me over and over again in my back. But this quote applies to SP too. We can't do this journey if we fudge a little bit here and there. We have to be brutally honest with ourselves when it comes to everything we eat, every workout we do. It's honesty and action and bring the results we're looking for! The same is true at the checkout - honesty is a good thing.

........................................
......................

Only got 4 hours of sleep last night!! You know where I'm headed. It was a real busy day again, but all good. Just need to get some rest and I'll be fine tomorrow.

Mileage: 9.25 miles

Hope your Monday was fantastic!! emoticon emoticon

"I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind."

Albert Einstein

........................................
............

I think this is so true. The simpler we make things, the better life flows along. Our SP journey is really pretty simple too.....just eat healthy foods, workout regularly and you'll feel so much better, you'll be healthier, your moods will be elevated, a total BIG win for anyone who follows this simple path.

........................................
.........

We lost the power in last night's storms. Bigger storms are headed our way this afternoon, so I'm Sparking early before we lose the power again. But for right now....gotta take care of business. My walking shoes are all laced up, ready to go and I'm headed for a cardio workout, then some ST. Mileage report will be missing for today so I can make the blog while I still can!!

Hope your Sunday will be blessed and wonderful!! 'Til tomorrow..... emoticon

    I think your storms are on their way to us in Kentucky right now! I'm glad you got your power back. I love the message. Whenever we accumulate too much "stuff" I always feel better when we give some of it to someone who actually needs it. Now if I can just get more consistent with the eating habits and exercise! Have a great day!

  Ah yes, the simpler life is definitely where it's at here in this house right now! It's not so bad!!

Stay safe. We're having storms too, but nothing bad @ the moment.
