  • 100 Days of Weight Loss: Day 13

    12/20/2014 5:57:45 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    They had put my sweet doggie on predisone (sp?) for her kennel cough and last night it made her very, very sick! She kept me up all night long! She first heard something and started growling in a very mean way and then barking. Then she went outside and barked. Later on she woke me by barking h... Read more

  • 100 Days: Day 12

    12/19/2014 10:38:06 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    Had a good day today. Felt well enough to go to Curves and work out plus got a sassy hair do with highlights and poinsettias painted on my nail! Had lunch with a friend and now my nephew is here for his Christmas visit. He asked me if I was Sandy from Grease with my hair all done up.... Can I ju... Read more

  • (Short Technology Gripe) + 100 Days of Weight Loss: Day 11

    12/18/2014 5:04:20 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    Since SP changed I can't find the points wheel. It used to be right there on my start page where as a blind person I could click a button the way I click things and spin the wheel. I was on a good streak and now I can't find it! It is not a big deal, I don't need Spark Points, but it is yet anoth... Read more

  • 100 Days of Weight Loss: Days 9 & 10

    12/17/2014 5:44:08 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    Not feeling well and didn't get to post yesterday! Both me and my dog are sick! So, my mind is not all into the 100 Days! Day 9 is about What I Want. It includes a short quiz to answer and read aloud and share with family and friends about what I want in the ways of support during my weig... Read more

  • Being Awake to Our Blessings

    12/16/2014 4:49:03 PM, by ROSARIODLT

    There are times when I walk past my list of goals, a list I did in the last few weeks that I posted in a place I could view everyday, and while I look at it I wonder about its significance. I wonder what that list would mean without the people I love and I know then and there that it would only be a... Read more

  • 100 Days Of Weight Loss: Day 8

    12/15/2014 3:19:33 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    Today's topic is about asking for or receiving, sometimes unwanted, help from others. I, personally, do not feel comfortable asking for help with my weight loss efforts from any of my "fleshy" friends, those real life friends, not Spark Friends! I'm not sure why either. I just don't want to ask.... Read more

  • 100 Days Of Weight Loss: Day 7

    12/14/2014 1:48:43 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    Today is the end of 1 week of following the guidelines of Linda Spangle's book, 100 Days Of Weight Loss. Today is all about cheering yourself on and telling yourself "you can do this"! If you are following my blogs as I know some of you are, you know I am struggling with that concet. I'm not sure... Read more

  • A 2 Blog Day! Thank You, Spark Friends

    12/14/2014 1:37:33 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    I am also going to do my 100 Days of Weight Loss blog for the day, but wanted to thank each and every one of you who commented on yesterday's blog! Yesterday I told y'all about my friend dying in his house when it caught on fire. I've been thinking of him all day today. We met when I was wo... Read more

  • {Sad Day} 100 Days Of Weight Loss: Day 6

    12/13/2014 7:06:40 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    Today is a very sad day for me. I learned that a dear friend of mine's house burned down and he didn't make it out. He was a kind, generous, loving, caring man who had 2 grown children and 4 grandchildren! He doted on his family like no other! I can't imagine dying in a fire. I can't imagine wh... Read more

  • Remembering My Mother Today

    12/12/2014 2:11:22 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    I am pleasantly surprised that I am not overwhelmingly emotional today. Today is the 2nd anniversary of my mother's death. I have flashbacks to the day that she died. If I have to go to the ER I flashback. If I happen to go outside and am in the car with my hair wet, I flashback. Sometimes, whe... Read more

  • 100 Days Of Weight Loss: Day 5

    12/12/2014 1:50:21 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    Day 5 talks about "The Magic Notebook". The magic notebook is simply a journal. I am using my SP blog as my magic notebook. But, I am not putting everything into it. So, perhaps a private journal is called for? In the magic notebook we are asked to write down our thoughts and feelings each day ... Read more

  • 100 Days Of Weight Loss: Day 4

    12/11/2014 6:45:49 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    I feel I am missing out without actually having the book yet. Today I couldn't even read the blog associated with Day 4. Ah, my computer. What I can get from what I am able to read is that Day 4 is about Boundaries Versus A Diet. I've been trying to give up the diet mentality since 2008 wh... Read more

  • 100 Days Of Weight Loss: Day 3

    12/10/2014 1:24:33 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    Do it anyhow is the theme for the day.... Don't feel like working out? Do it anyhow. Don't feel like making a healthy food choice? Do it anyhow. There within lies the difference between being commited to your weight loss or just interested. I'm afraid I am still just interested. I don't know ... Read more

  • 100 Days of Weight Loss: Day 2

    12/9/2014 12:39:24 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    Are you commited or just interested? That is the topic for Day 2. Am I commited to my weight loss efforts, or am I just interested in losing weight? I am not sure and I feel this may be a problem! I feel I am commited, but then I go and do those self sabotaging behaviors like I did last night. ... Read more

  • 100 Days of Weight Loss: Day 1

    12/8/2014 2:11:57 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    I have not gotten the book yet. The book is 100 Days of Weight Loss by Linda Spangle. I hope I spelled her last name right! I have to wait for my husband to download it onto my book player because it appears the only audio version is available on and not from the free Library of Congr... Read more

  • "Official" Winter Ponderland #1

    12/6/2014 7:11:24 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    It got so cold so early around here that I started my ponderings a bit early. But, the official winter is just around the corner and I had a few things on my mind, so here we go.... #1: How do we (US) live in a country where you can see ads on TV during the same sitcom or whatever talking a...

  • BLC26 Recap

    12/5/2014 5:00:24 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    I set out to ROAR during BLC26 as a Blue Lion Tracker and I did! I didn't lose as much as I set out to do, but I lost and that is a change. I'm thinner than when I started and I am stronger and even better than being thinner, I am leaner! OK, I didn't check back on my ROAR blog, but I think... Read more

  • Dear Santa

    12/2/2014 4:03:44 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    Dear Santa.... I've been a pretty good girl this year. I do get pouty and want my way too much. I lost a friend simply because we don't agree politically and she wanted me to think, act, and be like her and yes, I have been judgmental about her because I think she is craycray and not in a fun cr...

  • My Holiday Plan For Action

    11/30/2014 2:24:27 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    I need a plan to stay on track and keep losing and if not losing, maintaining during the holiday season! I have a party planned at my house next weekend, a few dinners out, a party for my first close friend to turn 50 and so much more, so I need a plan! *Exercise: Curves will be open on Ch... Read more

  • A Week Of Thanksgiving Day 7

    11/29/2014 6:08:01 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    Today MIL was getting some sleep and I am thankful for that. She needed to rest. Her resting also gave my FIL a chance to leave and go do some shopping he wanted to do. So, we shall see. I went to Curves and did my curves Smart and am finally getting back to a bigger calorie burn. I gues... Read more

  • A Week Of Thanksgiving Days 5 & 6

    11/28/2014 7:45:56 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    I only got on SP yesterday to post my fitness activities. I did 60 minutes of walking, dancing, playing with Sassy! Plus I cooked and made sure to always walk to the trash container with only 1 piece of trash and walk back to get more! My MIL is back in the hospital and completely out of he... Read more

  • A Week Of Thanksgiving Day 4

    11/26/2014 11:22:48 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    It is literally true, as the thankless say, that they have nothing to be thankful for. He who sits by the fire, thankless for the fire, is just as if he had no fire. Nothing is possessed save in appreciation, of which thankfulness is the indispensable ingredient. But a thankful heart hath a continua... Read more

  • A Weekn Of Thanksgiving, Days 2 & 3

    11/26/2014 12:06:46 AM, by JAXMOMMY

    Where does time go? Not sure, but I know I blinked and I went from Sunday to Tuesday! A couple of Winter Ponderland puzzlers before I do my attitude of gratitude.... When did Wednesday become Friday? Heard a TV commercial today that said Black Friday begins on Wednesday. Why do we feel th... Read more

  • A Week Of Thanksgiving Attitude of Gratitude

    11/23/2014 5:37:07 PM, by JAXMOMMY

    OK, a couple gripes before my attitude of gratitude.... Both my phone and my computer have been acting absolutely wonky! I mean, just plain problematic. Here on SP every time I use my blind way of clicking on links it sort of clicks the link above or below the one I want! My phone has just been ... Read more
