It has been over four years since I made an entry. Things have gone up and down for me and I was very ill, went down in weight. When I got well, I gained it back. The thing is that I am not healthy and made a decision that I had to take the l... Read more

I will be 50 this year and although that is what the calendar says, I don't feel what I think 50 should feel like. One thing that has taken over my thoughts is the fear of death. There are so many news reports of the deaths of people in their ... Read more

It was a nice day for a walk. It rained this morning and it cleared up for the afternon for at least two hours. During that time, I chose to walk instead of taking the bus. I just love how the earth smells after a good rain. It gives me more ... Read more

Seven months ago I took on a new born baby girl. She has been a blessing in my family's life, but she has been an exceptional blessing to me. When I got her, I decided to get rid of my car. I did not like having her in the back seat not knowi... Read more

Last time I was here was more than a year ago. Many things have happened since then. I went through thyroid cancer. Seems that my exhaustion and what seemed lack of motivation had a real reason behind it. I had one surgery to determine if wh... Read more

My motivation has temporarily hidden itself. I still log onto Spark to see if I may have lost it here. Hopefully I'll find the inspiration to forge full force forward to start exercising more regularly. I just find too many excuses to not get... Read more

My ex and bio mom of my two sons drives me insane sometimes. I have to see her more than I like since our son has received some awards for his Community Service. We've been broken up 15 years, but she feels so entitled to give me life advice w... Read more

Haven't been as steady with the workouts as I should be and I gained 7 pounds. Need to get back on track. Well, a two week vacation with yummy food didn't help either. But I am back in the gym three times a week and will slowly build back up ... Read more
