SNOW hits the NORTH!

Thursday, October 30, 2014


Tess, the German--(as in canine!) and her ""selfie""----LOL-----(-Not really her!)
But..selfies are all the rage now---- Here she really is!
To-day we are supposed to have ---
Between to-day and to-morrow, we are going to get 15cm-----(about 5inches)-
It means we will be wearing more clothing----but-----we will still---be ready to show off the ol' body in the Spring---because we are Sparkly healthy People

If we are going to walk naked down the street , come Spring---we best be successful with our eating plan---

Let's do it Sparkly People!

I will be thinking of you and the Germans. I am sure they like the cooler temps and probably even like playing in the snow.

We are in Kansas. Our DGS had his surgery yesterday. All went well given the surgery was 5 1/2 hours late in starting. Once it was over, we were out of there by 7:30 but it was a mighty long day.

Have a good one today.

Walking naked----

Wednesday, October 29, 2014


For years I've been ashamed of my body---
I've belonged to every weight loss group there is---
At my lowest weight, I've even lead some of these groups---
I've taught fitness classes, both on land and in the pool---
And I still am trying to "downsize"-
So what is different now?-----
Well----I understand that the way I was eating , was not healthy-I ate most of my calories , sitting on the sofa, watching TV, after supper----I did NOT stress veggies, or fruit-My exercise was not consistent---I did not know how salt made me retain water---I ate my troubles away---and with every weight loss attempt, I grew larger--
And ------when I forget my clothes, on days when "I lose my mind", the ol' body image still isn't where I want it-----but---- I know now, that this journey will never be over---It's a way of life now--this "battle of the bulge""---

There is no more hiding -----
I am getting stronger-----One day I will ""WALK NAKED""-----LOL----(as if eh?)-
----

You just started my day off with a smile.

We are in Kansas as our DGS is having a minor surgery today to replace the battery in his implant that helps control his seizures. He is doing great, a little concerned, but most of all upset that he can't go to school.

Do have a good day! Hugs, Sunny

Well the title of this blog got me over here in the first place, I mean who could resist a title "walking naked"

I like the idea of the dog called naked, not sure about the riding on the bike au natural, I fear that it'd be a tad rough on the tuckus!!!

And I'm not going anywhere naked, we need our birds alive and flapping not on the ground laughing

Epic thoughts-

Tuesday, October 28, 2014


Well, here we are-himself and I---after a zillion years of marriage----
The picture was sent to me by our daughter-----
I have short hair in the picture-
It looks 500% better than how it is now--long and pulled back---
Thursday is hairdresser day--so I will get it chopped off-
It might even mean that without the hair, I will lose weight---LOL
All is well on the home front here-We had a city election yesterday and we now have a new mayor--- I wonder if this new guy might get us a Mall--or a fitness facility---
And guess what?-- really ---this time it really is!
The clocks go back------
It might be brighter in the morning----
We also have a brand new day starting-----

This person wanted me to email her/him--said they needed to tell me something-
They had no web page on Spark People-
So how did they get in here?-
They went by the name of JESSICA44LOVE
I can't find where on here to report this--but---be careful out there----
Of course I didn't respond---
So, why is this happening?---
Where do I report this?
How did they get into this site?-
