Am struggling with poor connections and stingy wheels, but for now I'm here quietly Sparkin' (with my Yahoo! Musie set to the new age channel as usual), and enjoying the solitude (for now - this is a social and active weekend, and for once I'm actually participating and enjoying)..........thanks to the ongoing difficulties I'm having with dealing with a particular individual, I have come to the point where I have, in action and attitude, essentially put my foot (or dancing feet in this case) and said "ENOUGH"! I have HAD IT!
I will move on and move forward, and do what keeps me going, stable, and sane.......and if you DON'T like it, THAT'S NOT. MY. $!@. PROBLEM!
(Vent off now - whew! Feel relieved now, but I gotta get back some semblance of "zen" as it were, so that's enough of that!)
Sadly, I have succumbed to an *AWESOME* raspberry (of course!) ice cream - so I need to get back on track on that score.........fortunately, none of that kind of stuff is kept at home so once I'm back things will return to a better state......
Did get a good amount of activity in - didn't do my full set of mixed cardio/floor work, but that's OK - maybe I'll fit that in this afternoon as there will be some free time.....
Enjoy your Sunday, Sparkies!

Dealing with a depressed family member, but so far the weekend is going well.......I'm keeping fairly active (and if I have to work with others instead of the depressed family member, I am at this point bracing for the possibility and working to prepare to do so if needed)!
Had one real ice cream last night (of course, raspberry in nature, which is my downfall)..........but I should be able to account for that if I keep my activity level up........
Got invited to do a -heh, heh - *Ice Bucket Challenge* with a group of fellow club members - should be sometime tomorrow (details are still being finalized) - that oughta be a hoot! It's a little on the cool side, but I figure if my body cooperates it may just stop a "hot flash" in its tracks!

Getting ready for the usual weekend plans - I'm not totally enthused (for reasons I won't get into), but am "keeping up appearances".........
Ate slightly more than I anticipated last night (formal meal was later than I like, so I snacked before that)..........don't like to do so, but it has happened from time to time - one hazard of being an early riser/retirer when others around me live a different "time lifestyle"......
Am set to Spark while I'm at my location, and the weekend will have physical activity - just need to plan eating will, and since I will pack a bit (location has a kitchen), this should be doable.........
Am still feeling fairly well - love the way the ol' knees are behaving much better with what I've lost so far........WOO-HOO!
Enjoy your Friday, Sparkies!

*Another* social get-together last night! What the............this has been some crazy August!
Question I must ask myself now........who am I and what have I done with RASPBERRY56, anyhow?
Did fairly well, eating-wise ....... certainly didn't *overeat* (the ongoing effects of taste-testing in the afternoon).........did have a small amount of M&Ms (hey, I'm not a saint, you know!)...........couldn't get up the nerve to use the host's pool (and I did come prepared) - maybe over the weekend I will get the courage to swim (the lake I'll be around is a bit on the cold side, though).......
Onward with a new day........enjoy your Thursday, Sparkies!

Last week a coworker suggested a get-together after work at her place - I said to myself "yeah, yeah - whatever" - honestly I wasn't all that sure that would happen (when a cynical attitude meets up with a generally introverted personality, let's just say that things can get *ugly* ;) ) ......... but it does look like it will go on, so i'm gonna go for it! Of course the fact that I need to get away from family that are bring me down more and more each day has a lot to do with it .........
I should be able to deal with whatever food is available - will bring my "go-to" bevvie (gotta loooooove flavored seltzer - it's perfect for a hot day that's being predicted here)........
Here's to a good day, Sparkies!
