In the Beginning Blog 9 - The Search for Home
Sunday, February 19, 2017      25 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      27 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      52 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      106 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

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
Just a Tuesday
Tuesday, February 07, 2017      24 comments

Running short on time, so this is just my normal little pep talk. I've been writing a LOT lately, and I'm sure some of you will welcome a SHORT one! * The bag is packed. It's full of things you love and that nourish you. You know it's go... Read more

I hark back to this blog, from December 2009, in which I rejoice approaching the original goals I had "tossed out there" in May. www.sparkpeople.com/mypa

Am I ready to write this yet?
Sunday, February 05, 2017      33 comments

Seriously, I made about three starts at writing this blog yesterday, and pressed "delete" each time! I've alluded to having had some "off the rails" days, and on Friday I started making a list of the underlying things that have been "weig... Read more
The biggest lie I tell myself: in Beck terms that would be called a sabotaging thought
Friday, February 03, 2017      31 comments

The all time winner in my case is this whopper: "I don't care." Because in the end, of course that's a total falsehood. It's a lie I tell myself when I really want that chocolate muffin or whatever indulgence I'm about to stuff myself wit... Read more
