March 2015- here since 2007
Dang- so I'm on again, off again in Sparks.
Let's see- injuries, injuries, health, then injuries. Wow, so boring.
I love life. Love being here, and want to be healthier in my last years of life. I'm down over 130 from my high, and that's great- have had a few pounds creep back, but still feel like I eat a much more balanced diet than in days of old.
I have learned through tracking that I have to be careful to eat enough of the good stuff- fats and proteins are what were most likely to fall off my intake. No more. I am much better at eating home cooked amazing food, and hardly touch the fast food any more. Lots of fresh garden food, lots of slow cooked feasts. Hooray.
I have cancer- and the guess is about six more years to go. I want to be rolling on the floor with my grandkids, making arts and crafts, and calling to the moon for these last years. I want to stay full of gratitude for the life I have lived, the love I have shared, the glory of being.
I do rituals, say barborous woods, engage life as a Magician and wizard, know that I am one speck of the glorious world- one speck that is just as important, just as unimportant, just as glorious and amazing as the rest. One sparkling snow flake in a montage of life.
So- my hip is going out, my knee is kicking me, and I have to grin, and know that the gymnastics, the mountain climbing, the crazy life I have lived has a cost. Whoopee!
Ayup- going out with a spark.

You don't win by focusing on the finish- you finish by focusing on where you are

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do." "Eleanor Roosevelt

"once you set your mind to it, and stop fighting with yourself, and being hard on yourself, and having low self-esteem, and being your own worst enemy.... losing weight is the easiest thing in the world!!!!!" quote from a ROCKIN' sparks gal...
