I've been working every day this week, so not much time for sparking. But leaving all my friends with today's blog.

Go through your day with the right attitude !

    Love this one! When I read things like this, it reminds me that this weight loss journey is simple --- it boils down to just one simple thing and that is the choices we make --- we are in control of the choices we make -- simple -- that's it -- it doesn't have to be complicated. We choose to believe, we choose to achieve, we choose the direction in which we are heading --- simple. Success or Failure --- it's our choice.

Thanks Barbara --- have a wonderful week!

Yesterday I went over board with food, just because it was my birthday. Yeah I am an emotional eater, and I was in a happy celebritory mood, so I ate.

Today it's back to basics. As my spark friend Jo would say "you know the drill" healthy eating, drink my water and 30 minute workout.

" The pleasure of eating and drinking lasts a few moments; The pleasure of being at goal weight lasts a lifetime "

Happy birthday ! ! !

Monday, September 05, 2011









Today is a very special day, my husband and I both celebrate our 57th birthday. We had a bbq at our friends' home last night with plenty of food, mostly salads. No dessert which I thought was fantastic, most of us are working on getting healthy, so no cake.

Tonight we will do the cake and ice cream at my inlaws new apt. MIL always buys her children's birthday cakes for them, so we won't break from tradition.

Going to go out for a coffee then a visit with my friend who will be headed to the city for her 2nd week of radiation. Please keep her in your prayers.


"Friendship isn't about who you have known the
longest. It's about those who came and never left your side ...."

I read this blog, yet I have no comment posted.

Hugs Barbara, I think it is so neat that you two share the same birth date. You should have gotten married on that date too , that would have been real special.

Glad you had a good day.

Sunday Sept 4

Sunday, September 04, 2011



It's a nice sunny day. We've already been for a nice long drive, picked up a few groceries, stopped in to visit my friend who is going home to Maine today. But next year she will return and staying from June to October as she will be retired. Since she bought her summer home in Nova Scotia she has gotten here for the month of August. So will be wonderful to visit with her longer next year.

The move for my inlaws went very smoothly, lots of help, but they still need to downsize even more. Guess we don't realize the amount of stuff we gather over the years.

My friends are having a bbq for us this evening, so should be a good time with a few friends to celebrate our birthday, which is tomorrow. My husband and I not only celebrate the same day but also the same year.


~Life is not a 'brief candle. It is a splendid torch that must be made to burn as brightly as possible before it is handed on to the next generation.~ - George Bernard Shaw
