Last call for Spring 5% Challenge

Thursday, May 02, 2013

For all my Spark Friends who are still considering whether you REALLY want to shape up for the summer, I'm telling you the 5% Challenge is the ticket! Lose 5% of your weight (or more or less--you set your goal) while practicing good lifestyle habits, and racing (with your exercise) to "virtually visit" various exotic countries with your team mates. It's a blast, no kidding. But the main goal is to blast some weight off your body!

Last call--the invitation to join closes tomorrow, 5/4/2013.


If you can't join with this link, just let me know and I'll send a personal invitation from the site.

    That article makes a lot of sense. I've realized for myself that I can live a reasonable life weighing around 145. I'm only about 6 pounds from that. To many people that sounds high, that I should be trying for the 120's, but that just isn't reasonable. I need a reasonable, happy and healthy life.

Calling all Bears!!!

Sunday, April 14, 2013

Wake up and fluff your fur! Let's not fizzle out here at the last week of the challenge. Never give up! Never! We can still land first; we can still lose 2 lbs THIS WEEK! If we don't, let it not be because we sat on our fannies and didn't eat our freggies.

Hup-Two-Three-Four! Out of the cave and into that plane!

    You know, bears ARE really fast! I had one on the deck & was checking the door to see if it was locked. I got kinda flustered & UNLOCKED it, opened the door & went out to scare him. DUH...talk about "flustered"!

He ran like a son of a gun with puffs of dust behind each foot step. So I hope your team kicks up the dust and comes in FIRST!!!

BEARS are FAST!!!!! emoticon

Plus ša change...The more things change...

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

...the more they stay the same. In a featured SP article today is the story of the medication I took for morning sickness with my first child 40 years ago, but 3 years later it was taken off the market, and there was NOTHING to help me with the all-day morning sickness I endured for 9 months with my second child (hence no more pregnancies :) Now they've decided Bendectin is OK after all (at the time I was told it was some B vitamins and an antihisteamine, so no wonder).

Oh well, at least there's relief again for pregnant women, instead of being told to just "suck it up."

My day in the spotlight

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Who knew what power a few sweet words can have in a person's life. My spotlight day could not have been better timed. I received in the mail today the report of my IRS audit for 2010 & 2011--a meaner document you'll never see--well, I shouldn't say that; at least they didn't say I committed fraud--and a bigger bill I can't imagine. Then came all the great wishes for a great day in the spotlight, and soon the clouds lifted; I determined that I'd live -- even if I never get to retire. And if I'm in such great health, why should I even want to retire!

So thank you sincerely, my beary friends. And let's get those lbs off!

    Oh...RATS...I missed your day! Let me tell you all about what I think you should have heard from me on that SPECIAL day.

A dearer friend you'll never find. A Teddy that is committed and encouraging and inspiring and sincere. Someone who brightens your day and gives you a gentle nudge all at the same time. That's YOU dear one...that's YOU!

Shine ON! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm glad the good wishes arrived at a good time but an IRS audit sounds like a real pain. Good luck handling it. Maybe they'll find out that you pay too much :-)

    Gentle hugs coming your way...you SHALL overcome... was their audit correct? Don;t always just lay down and take it...maybe you were right the first time and can show 'em in an appeal? Loving on you and praying strength.
