......or else why do it at all? :)

OK - let's try this *again*! (Yeah, I've said it before...........)

Today, 10/8/15, I received awesome news (have been on a frustrating job search since May)............so now it's time to reflect on the experience and how I've worked through it - and frankly, it has *not* been a good one.......

Sooooooo - now, the introspection and soul-searching (or what's left of my "soul") begins again, including "re-Sparking"!

I'll shoot for a 40 lb. loss again - and will give myself a year to do so (I figure that'll allow for - ahem - age-related changes in metabolism).............eating, as in the past, will continue to be a challenge, but I have still been pretty consistent with workouts, thankfully..........I *still need to deal with stress better than I have been* - it's been a DOOZY to try to deal with that this time around.......

For those who've read my recent vents - thank you for bearing with me! I felt I needed to back off of things a bit for a while, so turning off my SparkPage for a while just seemed to be the prudent thing to do while I diligently worked on getting back on my feet.........

Let's hope the "third time's the charm"!

My Goals:
A better body and overall health - and a neater appearance in suits would be a good thing, too (as much as I HATE suits) :)

My Program:
No formal plan for now, but a basic cleanup of bad habits and refocusing on stress and emotional eating issues.....of course, the ultimate stress resolution will be getting re-employed :)

    My prayers go out to you too about the loss of your social acquaintances/friends.

    The Endoscopy Center called this morning to see how hubby was doing. He is fine and went out to hunt for wild raspberries and bought a new battery-operated toothbrush for me. He didn't find any berries. My old toothbrush wouldn't turn on and if it did, it would stop and start while I was brushing my teeth.

    Firemen came this morning and replaced two smoke detectors. One detector started beeping. Hubby took it off the ceiling and couldn't get it back in place. The new detectors do not require battery replacement, the whole detector is replaced.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I am going to continue to ignore them but if they step out of line again I may just look at my alternatives.

    Thank you for your message, I'm finding this app not very easy to use. It doesn't have the little red dot to follow when you have new messages and such. :p
