Weather day... but not just weather
Friday, February 24, 2017      19 comments

Truth to tell, I've not been feeling well this week. It probably started, in retrospect, on Sunday or Monday... by Monday night it was what turned into the sick day on Tuesday... and even feeling better and going back to work, I've felt bloated... Read more
RIP little SPAT
Thursday, February 23, 2017      34 comments

No matter how much denial I tried to muster, the little Spark Activity Tracker went dark yesterday, as announced. No more "Glow Getter" awards. Having to adjust to FitBit synch alone, which doesn't do nearly as good a job, but at least I have ... Read more
Recurring themes
Wednesday, February 22, 2017      35 comments

One thing that all of the digging through past blogs has done was reveal several recurring themes, and guess what? They are the same ones I see in fellow Sparkers' ponderings, posts, questions, and blogs. Things like musings over body imag... Read more
In the Beginning Blog 10 - training for the first 5K!
Tuesday, February 21, 2017      8 comments

Truth in advertising, it wasn't REALLY my first 5K, but it was the first 5K since the weight loss... and the first in 18 years... so I figured I'd toss some statistics out there: The target 5K was going to be on November 6, 2010, a year and... Read more
Snoozing the day away
Tuesday, February 21, 2017      26 comments

Nothing worse than being sick. Yuck, yuck, yuck. Classically, for me, weather has been super nice, but where was I? Today it was sacked out on the couch, being poked at by curious felines, while the 3, count 'em, 3 sets of sleepwear went thro... Read more
In the Beginning Blog 9 - The Search for Home
Sunday, February 19, 2017      26 comments

I left off the review of the journey in May of 2010, as I was on the "search for home weight". I had joined a 28 day Spark fitness Challenge in January that year, as I mentioned in the In The Beginning Blog 8 (a long one with LOTS of links to p... Read more
And sometimes Rebels run...
Saturday, February 18, 2017      28 comments

After all that tantrum tossing this week, after "Mom" put the Rebel "in charge", the Rebel did exactly what mom hoped for... she stepped up. She did things a little differently (packed the bag differently, had a Subway sandwich for lunch), ... Read more
Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Rebels overcome barriers
Friday, February 17, 2017      66 comments

Rebels don't have smooth paths. They have obstacles to overcome. They have mountains to climb, barriers to progress. I thought I had experienced a few, or at least the vestiges of them... but in fact, the real pioneers were forging the pa... Read more
Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts The Rebel is in the house... and she's in charge!
Thursday, February 16, 2017      107 comments

OK, Spark-a-roonies, I did it. I put my inner Rebel in charge of my day yesterday. I am now turning over not just yesterday but the rest of my life, the redesign, into her hands. See, the thing is, that inner Rebel is me. So is my former fat... Read more
Saved by an old blog?
Wednesday, February 15, 2017      27 comments

This idea has been kicking around in my head for several days, even while standing aside and watching myself continue to self-sabotage, and this morning I dug back in my archives to find this one. I wrote it way back on November 6, 2013... I wa... Read more
Bonus blog - treat yourself
Sunday, February 12, 2017      31 comments

I decided that I would handle my being troubled by Valentine's Day ads this way: bought my own Valentine flowers. They were on sale. An appro... Read more
CupboardS full of mugs
Sunday, February 12, 2017      30 comments

After posting photo after photo of my morning mugs, I got a comment from someone that she imagined I had a whole cupboard full of them... well, not quite, although they would fill a whole cupboard by themselves. Instead, the mugs are spread acr... Read more
Adventures around the lake
Saturday, February 11, 2017      32 comments

Yesterday was the best weather day all year (so far)... the high temperature yesterday afternoon was 71* F! Today was almost as warm... over 60* F for our Galloway group run/walk/run at 2 p.m. ... Read more
Adventures with a misbehaving thermostat
Thursday, February 09, 2017      34 comments

Yesterday afternoon when I got home, I noticed in passing that my thermostat was 3 degrees F above where it normally sits at that programmed time of day. I adjusted it to what I set it at when I'm home, and didn't think any more about it. ... Read more
Choose your battles
Wednesday, February 08, 2017      40 comments

Trying to change EVERYTHING in your life all at once is a recipe for one of our new President's favorite terms: "disaster". He overuses that word, and many times inappropriately, BUT, most of us who have tried to make too drastic a change in o... Read more
