  • Happiness is...

    2/3/2016 11:43:45 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    Happiness is a frame of mind. We can all adjust our outlook and perspective to be more happy. And we can all watch over ourselves like a parent would for a child and do things for ourselves that we know will lead to greater happiness. Of course diet and exercise are important, but so is working on ... Read more

  • Is there a purpose in life?

    2/3/2016 3:19:12 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    In the Judeo-Christian tradition, if you believed in heaven, then as you age you may live your life according to the principles of God, and purpose may show itself. If it doesn't, there's always the afterlife to reveal the true meaning of things. It will all make sense in the end. But if you ... Read more

  • I like my writing a lot better when I'm opposed to something....

    2/1/2016 3:54:12 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    than when I am saying something positive. Lately, I have written some blogs with a more positive tone. I find that difficult. Painting a rosy picture is a very hard thing to do, and feel that you are contributing something. In fact, you run the risk of turning people off out of an envy for your posi... Read more

  • Thanks to all of you who commented on my diet blog.

    1/30/2016 4:20:02 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    I've decided what to do after talking it over with the person who knows me best, my wife. I am going to cut back on butter consumption (it mainly goes on toast and potatoes). I will reduce the amount of salad dressing I use. I will limit diet drinks to averaging 12 oz per day. Fitness wise, ... Read more

  • Back to weight loss.

    1/28/2016 5:06:35 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    About a month or two ago, I wrote on this site that after over fifteen years, I was tired of my attempts to lose weight, and would just cruise for awhile, without a weight loss emphasis. But I'm up about 4 lbs, and this shirt that I really liked wearing last winter is bulging out quite a bit today a... Read more

  • It seems to be a time for "fools and fanatics".

    1/25/2016 1:21:05 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    I just read an article based around the following quote from Bertrand Russell: "The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts." Glenn... Read more

    but I stayed home and made au gratin potatoes, as part of a ham dinner. Comfort food. It was very nice staying home with my wife. Glenn... Read more

  • All of my strong ideas have left me.

    1/21/2016 9:57:30 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    I was looking through my blogs of years past. I was always coming up with things to chew on that I would write a blog on. I was never out of ideas. A lot of things grabbed me. Now, in the last few months, all of that has left me. It's like it was just lifted. I am left more content lately, with ... Read more

  • We were doing it right all along.

    1/18/2016 1:47:15 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    I was just reading about a study done on 20 cosmonauts, over half of whom spent a year or more in space. I learned that their best coping style was to complain, rant, ask for sympathy. Then, the other crew members would support them. This was the top preferred coping style, and they learned it in... Read more

  • There is a power.

    1/17/2016 2:25:27 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    There is a power in the Universe, that is so big and loving and patient that only some people experience. It might be in their heads, but I sense there must be something out there, in here, that is almost majestic. I know I am an agnostic,, and that part of me thinks it is all made up. But I do hav...

  • "I can't imagine my life being any better."

    1/15/2016 2:39:06 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    This was a quote from a produce clerk who had made acquaintance with a psychologist who wrote for Psychology Today. It was refreshing to read as it reminded me of simplicity, and how living simply can lead to the greatest happiness. I have had it three times in my life. Once, while working as a w... Read more

  • Day 2! : )

    1/14/2016 5:46:00 AM, by SHELLYED

    My first day back on my "healthy lifestyle change" went well! I feel really good, actually. I did the first day on Couch to 5k on the treadmill, telling myself I've done it before and there is nothing wrong with having to build my stamina again. In a way, because I have been here before, I know t... Read more

  • Here We Go (Again)! : )

    1/13/2016 4:13:08 AM, by SHELLYED

    Can't believe it has been 536 days since I last logged in to Sparkpeople! Once again, here I go! I am not discouraged from gaining weight again, I have real obstacles in my way. I developed bone spurs the side of the bottom of my big toe, and it really hurt to run. This started in March 2015. I... Read more

    1. I worked out. I've been pretty good at avoiding it. Finally I broke down and went tonight. It was later than I'd like, but it got done. 2. I ate fast food. I didn't beat myself up about it. It happened. I moved on. I ate better the next meal. 3. I cleaned. Doesn't sound like a big deal,... Read more
