Two weeks...getting old
Here I am in week two of being in severe pain. I've gotten to the point where I "tolerate" it and go on living life. I just ask people to not make me laugh, because it hurts so bad it makes me cry when I laugh.
I've now been to the doctor ... Read more
You told me so...
Yes, you all warned me, but I still did it anyway. I signed up for a month of Nutrisystem. And let me just say, that is all they will be getting from me. From poor to mediocre foods that lack taste to the fact it costs well over $500 a month. It... Read more
The chains that bind us
Why be shackled by your past when you can set free to experience what lies in today and tomorrow. Your past may have sculpted you into who you are today, but if you continue to hid behind those things, you continue to be chained to it until you ... Read more
Side-lined, yet again
It's been a bad week. A VERY bad week. After an absolutely wonderful weekend where the sun shined, I rode my bike and ate healthy, it all fell apart at 2 am on Monday morning. At first I thought the stabbing burning pain in my abdomen was a resu... Read more
Take it easy
I'm a big fan of the Eagles. I bought my first Eagles cassette (yes, cassette) when I was in junior high. Their music to me transcends generations. But as I grow older, I find many of their songs focusing on the older single ladies.

I need some advice
I need you, my fellow sparkers, to give me some advice. I'm looking for a healthy weight loss plan that is not a strain on my pocket book. I had been participating in a program called The Onion Factory for the past year. Problem is, I'm spending... Read more
Sunday Night Musings: 9/6/2015 - Swim, Forest, Swim!
34 years ago I found a new passion: swimming! And, boy, was I good at it. Our family lived in a neighborhood that had a pool, so I was constantly in the pool building up my swim prowess. I had great strength in my arms to pull me effortlessly th... Read more
Friday Night Musings: 9/4/2015 (Labor Day Weekend)
Here it is...the long awaited celebration of summer's end. Summer was cruel to me this year. I filed for bankruptcy after a struggle with manic/depression landed me in the hospital for a week and off work for 2 weeks. I was literally one paychec... Read more
I did it!!!!
And I wasn't even the slowest turtle on the course! In fact, there were people still on the course as I was leaving. And I was there for a good 30 to 45 minutes after I finished. I feel fabulous (aside from all my muscles screaming at me)! And I... Read more

Baby Steps: First Step
I know they say baby steps in getting back to being healthy, but a friend is dragging me kicking and screaming (okay, so they are more like squeals of joy) to a Foam Glow 5K here in Indy this Saturday night. I won't be running, but I'll be walki... Read more
I Can Do It
Back on June 25th, I was admitted to the hospital and was there for a weeklong stay. I had hit a wall and could no longer function. I had given up and I made an attempt on my own life. I felt like there was no hope left in me. I was at an impass... Read more
