The incredible edible egg (my poem)

Thursday, September 19, 2013

Eggs, eggs, eggs, who knew?
how so very close I'd come to you
Scrambled, boiled, poached or fried,
On you Oh egg, I can rely
Why do I hold you in such esteem?
Because you, Oh egg,
are my source of protein! emoticon
Happy Thursday Sparklers!! emoticon

What I hope to gain by Sparking

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

I want to lose weight for sure, emoticon but I have to be honest and get real with myself. The weight is symptomatic, the problems that caused me to stop caring about myself and let myself go has to be fixed. What are my real issues, the ones I have tried to eat away with every feel good food there was? Why did I try to drown my sorrows? Why do I hold everything in? Why am I so afraid? What is my real problem? emoticon If I donít address that, then will I be thin but yet still unhappy? I have been so closed up, for so long that I donít know how to open up and be vulnerable again? I have successfully isolated myself away, and no one bothers me. I do not mean to be a Debbie Downer, but I am trying to be an overall healthier individual, body, soul and spirit, emoticon so sparkers bear with me, if my blogs seem right now to be a bit depressing, I am a work in progress. I want to be more open and I am hoping that blogging will help me to be more so as this is a very supportive community emoticon . As the weight comes off, I want everything else in my life that has been holding me bound and captive to come off as well. I find strength and motivation daily from the blogs I read. emoticon I look at the before and after pictures and yes I notice the weight lost, but I especially notice the smile emoticon , and the light emoticon in the eyes, that has more to do with weight. I think this journey becomes more about us, than weight, at least which is what I hope for myself and everyone here as well.

    Great blog. Addressing all those issues and making peace with them is exactly the journey I am on and many others here at spark. Our blogs are to do just that and you have done it so eloquently here. When we find out what got us here and then find ways to deal with it, only then can we be truly free of this disease. Loving your blogs because they get me thinking. Thanks so much for inspiring and motivating. Have a good day.

    Hi Beautiful! Yes this is more about finding ourselves than a weight loss journey. It is about accepting our past and making changes for our own good! The weight loss is just a bonus that comes along with these new healthy habits we are putting in place. Good luck on your journey! Be blessed! emoticon

Throw me off my game?

Friday, September 13, 2013

This week I have been wondering about why people come to you with the things they come with, such as negativity or gossip or just drama in general? How about their timing? When you have set your mind on specific goals to live better, to eat better, to think better thoughts it seems here They come with all of their drama!! In the words of Mary J Blige I don't want no more drama in my life. I want to be happy and be at peace with all. I want to enjoy the rest of my life which will be the best of my life by the way! I want to be healthy and enjoy my grandkids. I want to travel more with my husband. I want to worship God and appreciate all his wonders, big and small. I am at a stage in my life where I am content with whatever I have, not settling, but nor am I striving. I am learning to sit on the passenger seat side of my life. Someone greater than I is in control.

  The second person that commented had good advice.

But then sometimes we have to keep these people in our lives for various reasons. We have to figure out how to be involved and what to say or do. It's actually a useful life skill, but sometimes a challenge. Ask God's opinion on these situations.

  Right when you decide you are going to get better, do better or be better, the devil tries to raise his ugly head. We are more than conquerors and it makes us stronger when we yield not to temptation! Consider it a test of your faith /endurance /commitment! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Avoidance can be a way to deal with it negative people and their drama. A better way to deal with it is to know that YOU have a CHOICE whether you invest YOURSELF in their negativity or drama. Those are Their issues. When people start talking about that kind of stuff. immediately change the subject or let them know you aren't interested in participating. There should come a time where everything around you can be negative but you are at peace because you know who you are and that isn't you and has nothing to do with you or your mood.

    Sometimes it's good to avoid these negative people.....then on a day when you can handle it, listen to what they have to say. Mary J Blige has a lot of useful things to say. You're right to want to be positive with your life and do your dreams! emoticon
