Happy 2nd Sparkaversary to Me!

Thursday, May 02, 2013

I'm tooting my own horn today. It's been an up and down journey so far, but I'm still on it. That is some kind of record for me.

Almost 40 pounds lighter, much healthier in many ways and more energetic.

Whoo hoo! I'm proud of this accomplishment. Thanks to all the folks who helped me get this far. emoticon

My Heart is Bigger, My Eyes Wider

Saturday, April 20, 2013

I started to write this to my team, **Walking/Leslie Sansone Team**, therefore the reference to walking.


I hope that as you were glued to the news this week you walked off some of the tension and anxiety recent events caused. I have to admit, while some of my heart went to those in Boston, my heart goes out everyday to our soldiers who face these situations every day. My eyes are opened wider, though, to include the men and women who work hard everyday for our safety. EMTs, law enforcement and firefighters.

Our country had another awakening, another chance to take heed. We saw bravery as our citizen warriors worked together. On American soil. Ordinary citizens, guests of our country, emergency personell, civil servants - working as a team. It was extrodinary.

I pray much beauty comes from the evil. Families drawing closer, communities getting stronger, every individual realizing how precious life is.

Boast not yourself of to morrow; for you know not what a day may bring forth Proverb 27:1

    No one is promised a tomorrow, and these events are a not so gentle reminder to all of us to be ready. My heart aches for those do not have a personal relationship with God.

Preparing for Tomorrow

Friday, April 19, 2013

Blew the eating plan for today. Not horribly, but I didn't start out with a plan so was all over the place. Did manage to get all my freggies in and then some though.

Exercise was in small segments. In my world not doing exercise early usually results in just barely getting it in. One of the chores today was hauling wood into the house, and that certainly counts as exercise. I was huffing and puffing when the UPS man came to the door. I told him why but he looked skeptical.

Tomorrow: Pre-breakfast (low glycemic meal in a mug); exercise; small breakfast; stain the legs of the breakfast bar I am making; run into town; walking while hubby is doing his errands; sack lunch; home to scrub kitchen floor and other chores; afternoon planned snack, work outside if not windy/cold; dinner; evening chores; bed. Routine is good for me!
