Butt officially kicked - jet lag and virus/cold
Wow, after I posted the other day I was feeling okay but WHAM. I woke up super early, ate breakfast, and then had to go back to bed. I felt terrible - my throat hurt, body ached, and I was running a fever - first it was 101.6, mid day it dropped... Read more

Been a tough week trying to get ready for the trip. Sigh.... Read more
when your fat clothes don't fit...
...and you are a week away from big vacation and you know you've gained weight...it's discouraging. As I mentioned, I had a pretty significant gain, which is what happens when you don't weigh for a while and are KIND OF doing the right thing.

I knew I had gained weight but have been avoiding the scale. This morning, I weighed in and what I knew instinctively was confirmed.
It isn't a surprise. I know what to do, and haven't been doing it consistently. I have had to make adjustm... Read more

My life changed suddenly and dramatically. Al... Read more
Reflections - Why Do People Leave the Spark Community?
I read an interesting blog yesterday by BOBCATGIRL76. Not only was the blog interesting, but the comments were, too. The topic at hand, was why people leave Sparkpeople. Recently, BROOKLYN_BORN did a research project to find out where her spark ... Read more
It's hot here (again) and even a bit overcast. K and I went to the gym early and got our swim in and then at breakfast at our favorite local place. It's a good way to start the weekend!
Friday I was a bit off. My clothes are tight and I co... Read more
Getting back up after a fall
So I've had a confusing couple of days. Yesterday, I found myself eating a lot of ice cream at one time. I don't know if I would call it a binge, but it was close to it. Later, I had some frustration dealing with a couple of different things - t... Read more
Only the best me

What initially cau... Read more
Been off the healthy food and routines for a couple of days. Friday was a long exhausting day, headed to a memorial service which was almost 2 hours away, then back to the friend's house after (another 2 hours!). We stayed at the house for longe... Read more
Weary Wednesday to Finally Friday
This week has left me a bit disheartened and spent. A bunch of little things can add up and take you down.
It started with dealing with an expense for my Mom, who lives out of state in nursing care. I wrote about it a bit on Wednesday, and... Read more
Obligations, Alternative Exercise, and Painting
Good morning! I started a blog yesterday but got side tracked by having to deal with some issues related to my mom's care. And got in the middle of coordinating something that needed to be re-scheduled, and got frustrated. So I headed off to the... Read more
I just logged on here and saw that Spark added a new feature so you can add a new blog right on the page! If it was there before, I didn't see it - I always had to go back to the START menu to add. This is much easier!
This day has been bus... Read more
