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
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
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
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
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

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
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.

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
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 ge_public_journal_individu al.asp?blog_id=2644482
