But then the real trick may be in the ability to recognize the opportunity to enjoy a bit of frivolity.

  The joy of wholesome humor is truly great medicine!
How I miss the funny stuff of the Carol Burnet show. Her skits with her TV crew members were hilarious.---- Laughter is pure joy!
Great blog!

Designer Stuff

Sunday, September 14, 2014



Getting ready to leave for our Run for God class. I'm sporting the new running shorts and shirt I bought yesterday. They are nothing fancy, and definitely not name brand, but they are loose fitting and comfortable. Can't wait to see if they actually "wick" the sweat off my body. I wanted some warm up pants, but could find any that fit for less than $50, which I just was not willing to pay. I'll keep looking for something more reasonably priced. I found I have "outgrown" being a brand snob. I wised up to the fact that a label or logo does not in and of itself make you look good. Just another non-scale victory.

besides too many of what used to be quality name brands... just do not have "QUALITY" as part of their products as in the days of yore. Too bad, Too sad.

    I agree totally. When I was a little girl I had a sister a lot bigger than me though she was only 16 months my senior. It always felt like she got the good stuff and I really, really wanted what she had. Eventually I'd get it passed down and then I was happy. I still prefer previously owned clothing never name brands.

    I hear you! I bought men's running shoes because I am absolutely flat-footed! And almost no arch at all. And to wear other shoes hurts my feet. Now I can wear them all day long with my spark activity tracker on them and keep on walking!

So wearing clothes that are comfortable and help you do want you need to do is what it's all about!

Good for you!!!!! emoticon

What Are You Willing To Give Up?

Saturday, September 13, 2014



Had a great day. Went shopping for some running shorts and running tops. Had good luck with sales. Even found 1 shirt for $2.99. Can't wait to try them out. Next run is scheduled for tomorrow.

    Wish I had seen this 40-50 years ago. When I was much younger, People Pleasing was a big one for me. No one ever told me that is was OK to say NO and not everyone had to like Linda. I know it now and am much happier!

Thanks for posting this, I'm going to save it and send it on to my grandkids and kids.
Hugs, Linda

Fitness Fairy

Friday, September 12, 2014



Yesterday was a bust, I went to bed early, but could not fall nor stay asleep, that is until about time to get up. I had planned my "Run for God" for Thursday morning, but the alarm didn't go off. Storms also crashed our internet service, so I didn't get much Sparking done yesterday, only what fit into my lunch time, when I should have been walking.

Today, I'm exhausted! Fitness Fairy visited and made sure my alarm worked. I dragged myself out of bed on the first ring, and went out for my run...temps in the lower 50's...GREAT...drizzling...not so great. Hard enough to watch my time for my intervals in the dark (no street lights in our area) but with wet glasses my stop watch was next to impossible to read. I made it anyway. At least I wasn't overheated today. It's a 30 minute drive to work, and I could barely keep my eyes open. S-O-O-O not safe!

Tomorrow, I plan to sleep in. Wish I could go to bed early, but it's game night, and my son marches in the half-time show. Here's hoping the Fitness Fairy hangs around and keeps me motivated to move it, even when I don't feel like it.
