Day 13 and going strong

Saturday, January 16, 2016      2 comments

Another good day - could have been a little more active, but a friend came over this afternoon and we sat and talked until after dark so I missed my walk. Always good catching up, though. Food plan is still on track. I'm not even really m... Read more

Day 11

Thursday, January 14, 2016      1 comments

Today is my 11th day of Whole30 and it has been an eye opener. There is truly very little in the grocery store that doesn't contain added sugar and a lot of other stuff I don't want to eat. I'm not saying I will be this strict forever but I wi... Read more

Sunday Musings

I felt well enough to go to church today and it was a blessing after missing so many weeks. On Sunday night's I lead children's choir and there is always a laugh in it for me. Tonight I was talking to the kids and told them they would need to... Read more

I went to the doctor and it turns out the sinus infection I was hoping would go away on its own is staph. He said they are seeing a lot this week. Had such a long wait at the clinic that the pharmacy was closing so just started meds this morni... Read more

Yesterday was my first day back on SP after a long hiatus and it was wonderful to reconnect with many of my friends. That is one of the best things about this program: the support of a whole community of people who understand what you are tryin... Read more

Didn't get around to New Years resolutions until now, but here goes: Sing, laugh and dance every day. Take care of my body, mind, and spirit. Do a better job keeping in touch with family and friends. Serve God and my community. Clean o... Read more

AWOL too long

Friday, July 31, 2015      6 comments

It's been way too long since I was in the spark routine, and I have the pounds to prove it. The last few weeks I've been spending most of my time in Birmingham with my son. His wife is on an extended trip and I've been taking care of the k... Read more

Home from Scotland

Monday, May 25, 2015      6 comments

Got back from Scotland last week and it seems I enjoyed the food a little too much: saw a weight gain of 7 pounds. The meals were almost as wonderful as the sights. I was pretty frustrated by the gain since my traveling buddy ate as much as I... Read more

Back to Laptop

Monday, April 06, 2015      6 comments

I've been sparking from my Kindle, and decided it's just not working for me because the options are limited. I think blogging really helps me stay on track, so here goes. (It is also easier to keep up with friends from the laptop) Easter ... Read more

It's been a mess!

Thursday, January 29, 2015      3 comments

Had to edit this one. Typos just drive me crazy! My much-anticipated trip to spend Christmas in Texas with all my children and grandchildren (doesn't happen every year) was spoiled by a bad case of the flu. Oh, I went all right. I had be... Read more

Just got in last night after a two-week trip. Drove to Houston where my son and daughter and their families live. Then flew to LAX with my 14 year old granddaughter for Thanksgiving. My 21 year old granddaughter picked us up at the airport an... Read more

The pressure is on

Oops. I normally throw my jeans into the drier for about 5 minutes to get some of the wrinkles out and then hang them up to dry. Today I went outdoors to do a chore and ended up staying out longer than planned. So the only 2 pairs of size 16 ... Read more

Productive day

Thursday, September 25, 2014      7 comments

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I was able to get vehicle titles transferred from hubby's name to mine without tears. It took an hour and a half at the DMV but the ladies were wonderful - even phoning my insurance company because I had forgot... Read more

Making Progress

Wednesday, September 24, 2014      6 comments

Just two days after my last blog Ms. Gene passed away during the night. I was with her, along with her daughter-in-law, and count that as a blessing although it was tough coming so soon after my hubby's death. Watching two loved ones die from ... Read more

New day

Friday, September 12, 2014      4 comments

The last week has been a struggle. My dear friend Gene, who is 87 years old and the most amazing woman I have ever met, has been fighting cancer for about 4 years. She has been in the hospital for the last couple of weeks and has steadily gott... Read more
