well.......here I go again RAH!
This morning jogging was so hard. My legs felt like lead and it was all I could do to make it through. The sweet thing was how many folks I met and chatted with on the greenway. If you live in Raleigh you must know what an amazing set up with ha... Read more
Day 2 of June challenge
Talked to a new Sparkler today-who is also an old friend. It is always fun to share something this good with someone!

My June Challenge..........here goes
A friend texted me yesterday to ask how it was going with Spark. I told her I loved it..........but, the truth is, I'm not really doing it. I have allowed myself to slide instead of check, assuming instead of tracking, and not keeping up with re... Read more
So I have been here for 3-1/2 months, exercising, running more and more.......but I have lost my focus. When I first headed out on vacation I was concerned about this, and now I know with reason. I'm so pleased with what has already happened in ... Read more
throwing away those 16-2X clothes
I've been making a stack in the spare room closet for the clothes that no longer fit. Today they got sacked up to head to those that can still wear them-church has a ministry to migrant workers, etc. I wore my size 12 jeans while I did the packi... Read more
where discouragement meets encouragement
I am exhausted. I jogged just a bit, then off to the plant store for more supplies, mowed the yard, mulched, planted the new plants, raked, watered, cleaned up and rested. What is different today? Well, I'm discouraged by events not under my con... Read more
Make this day count.
I love the daily encouraging email messages from Spark. Today's was about not letting time slip by unused. I want an adventure today. Work is always an adventures if I make it so. I know the Lord calls us to good and joyful use of our time. That... Read more
Down another pound. I LOVE NOT dieting!!!!
After dinner last night at PeiWei I was pretty sure I would be a bit up today......but, surprise! I was down another pound. The funniest this is that the weight loss is a by-product, not, at least not for me, the reason for being here. As I was ... Read more
spreaddddddddddding the spark!
Now that I'm down several pants sizes and maybe it is that spark glow, I'm being asked what I'm doing and I'm just boldly sharing the spark. I have so many friends that are dealing with health issues that feel totally swamped and unable to move.... Read more
Grabbed by the Emotional Beast
So I get home today and after all the dinner experience I open my Spark Mail and read "Tame The Emotional Beast For Good"........ As I read about the triggers I come upon the line:
"Or it might be as simple as getting home from work or scho... Read more

Glad to be home and heading back into a routine. I jogged and mowed today-oh, and weeded and grocery shopped. Tomorrow means back to work, something I love dearly. Out to dinner with dh and kept myself in Sparkling shape.

So I'm off on an adventure and will be disconnected for at least a little while. I'm a little nervous about going solo without my sparkle but I know I can track food on my cell phone. Now is the time to put the pedal to the metal and see what I ... Read more
smiling through the sweat
I really enjoy the morning walk/jog. It gets to be more and more jog and less and less walk. Did the mileage tracker a bit ago and decided that the 3.71/day is a little short. I can easily add another ten minutes by doubling back in one spot. It... Read more
