    I am way off track with food, water, and exercise. I haven't done much of anything for 5 days. Today I decided, step 1 is drink water. It's really silly that something so simple, can be so hard. ... Read more

    Busy day. Washed dishes, paid bills, thought about moving money but I don't have to do that for a week at least, went to Goodwill and found a folding bookcase. Stayed out of Walmart and King Soopers. Still behind on my emails. Union meeting this Saturday. The lamp in the living room needs to be tigh... Read more

    Well the maintenance man finally showed up at 9am (he told me yesterday he would be here at 8), So, I took Cooper out for an hour walk when Mike got here.

    There has been some pain from my knee replacement. Until I went to the doctor on Thursday, I thought maybe I had twisted it or bumped it, and just didn't remember. Turns out I have an infection. Antibiotics for the infection and a butt chewing because I didn't come in sooner. Improvin... Read more

  • Difference between a goal and a dream

    3/22/2017 4:59:33 PM, by PROJECTCHRISSIE

    The dictionary says that "A goal is a desired result or possible outcome that a person envisions, plans and commits to achieve. Many people endeavour to reach goals within a specific timeframes." "And a dream is a cherished aspiration, ambition or ideal." So in retrospect there is not much differen... Read more

  • All or nothing

    3/22/2017 4:25:00 PM, by MARILYNS69

    So on doing the sparkcoach today it asked to blog about the 'all or nothing'. I have done that with a few things in my life. One is walking. Due to medical problems I have difficulty the older I get (and all this extra weight) with walking any great distance without stopping and sittin... Read more

  • Motivation at last

    3/22/2017 6:43:37 AM, by AKELAZ

    I've been very unmotivated lately. No valid excuses at all - I just hate the dull skies we have mostly had here and the wet and windy weather that seem to go with them. I am pretty well on track with food but have not been exercising nearly as much as I should and certainly with no enthusiasm. There... Read more
