Glad to turn the page...

Thursday, May 01, 2014

I don't know about you, but I am happy to turn the page on April. Easter was very special, but the month of April found me struggling in many ways. We lost two very dear friends...two women, who were just like family. One was like a mother to me, and the other, was my interior design and decorating mentor. She taught me everything I know about decorating. She gave me a second career! I still can't believe both of those lovely ladies are no longer here, but I rejoice knowing where they are! I thank God for the many women who have given me so much.

Somehow, through the crazy month of ups and downs, health challenges, unusual meals...and quite a bit of weight has stayed stable! Although I didn't check in daily, I tried to stay "on target" without worrying about it too much, if that makes sense.

Now, I am ready to move on to May! I pray it is a month of less stress, more workouts, and a more "regular" schedule! And I pray there are no more "surprises" but as I go forward, I am reminded, once again, that we never know what is around the corner, so we cherish the loved ones, the friends, the people with whom we share our lives...and thank God for each and every one of them, and for Spark friends...I thank God for you, too!

Blessings to all...



Sorry...been AWOL.

Hello, Spark Friends!

It is so hard to come back from Spring Break and it has taken all week to get back in the groove again!

I am thinking of several people here, and hoping everyone is doing well and enjoying the changing of seasons.

Sadly, yesterday, I heard the news that someone dear to me passed away recently, and as hard as it is to accept that news, it is wonderful to know WHERE SHE IS!

Sending everyone who reads this, and hoping your day is beautiful!

Losing weight and gaining insecurities...

I am not ready to say it. But the title is so true. I will say what's eating me. Soon.

Sunday rest...but feeling guilty!

Sunday, February 09, 2014

After yesterday's fitness "blitz" and full day of activities, I woke today feeling rather wiped out. My back is stiff, and can barely bend straight over. The fitness motivator I usually feel pushing me on seems to be depleted. It is hard to find the necessary gumption to get a few steps in on the treadmill. Perhaps I am a little lonely after our company left, and perhaps a little blue from the slight fall-out with my friend. In any case, it seems difficult to WANT to do anything today! Even church seemed a little "different." Maybe all of this is just due to fatigue. In any case, I can't decide whether to push or to just be still. All combined, I would say this is the kind of day that baffles me! I never know what I need on a day like this! Maybe a few minutes on the treadmill will cheer me up...we'll see. emoticon emoticon

Hard to believe...

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

It is great to be back here! RA, and Crohn's had me on steroids for months and to add to my troubles, I gained weight. It was all about to get to me, and then I remembered Sparkpeople! The weight is coming off and I am glad to feel in control again. It is great to read about others. For some reason, as my health troubles mounted, I didn't take the effort to come here. I have missed everyone!
