Finally made the connection that losing weight and living a healthy life isn't about dieting. It's about making a permanent change in my lifestyle.

Cutting all the foods that I enjoy is the fastest way to failure, because it's not sustainable. I have to live my life rather than be on a perpetual diet, so I need to learn to self-moderate and exercise control over my choices.

Oh, there's no way they'd allow that. His league is SUPER strict about when training/practice is allowed to start. There are a couple teams that would beat their children ragged and into the ground if the coaches/parents let them. (For them, this is the NFL *lol*) Of course, if he happens to bring along a friend now and again that couldn't hurt, right?! ;)

Hi Amanda!

Haven't been Sparking in awhile but now that I'm back, thought I'd stop by & chat.

We're settling into our house here in Buckeye, AZ but we still have a lot to do & the people who owned the house before us planted *nothing* in the backyard so dH & I have visited 3 different nurseries looking at various trees, bushes & flowers that we could put back there.

Before leaving Oregon, we had to have Bismarck put to sleep; he was in too much pain from spine/hip/leg issues ~ this has caused me to feel like everyday is a deep dark shade of gray. At least we still have our cat Casanova but still, most of my life right now feels like I'm just going thru the motions with no real interest in the house, or my new camera, or much of anything. I know this will pass eventually .... just gotta get through it somehow.

dH's cousin is coming from Wisconsin this Sat & will be taking him golfing, to see Montezuma's Castle & the well up in Sedona, the Osterrich farm on the way to Tucson and the Saguaro National Park West.

What's up with you? Hope you're happy & healthy! Look forward to hearing from you soon. Take care .... Marie
