I was blog surfing today and I realized that I get a lot of enjoyment from the things other people write about.
It doesn't need to be anything big or important or exciting. Just the ordinary musings of ordinary people doing ordinary everyday things are interesting.
I also read that people who blog lose more weight and keep it off better than people who don't blog on a regular basis. Why that's so, I don't know, but it's worth trying.
I guess that means that even if you don't have anything B-I-G to share, the act of sharing
is B-I-G in itself. I like that idea.
And somewhere along the way, I realized that it meant something to me to see that my Spark friends are eating more veggies, drinking more water, finding ways to involve their kids in healthy pursuits like walking and eating less junk---it means a great deal.
We're all making progress together, which is cool. So, my goals for today:
eat 5 fruits and veggies (1 down)
ride 10 miles on the exercise bike
organize my desk (the clutter is making me crazy)
try a Spark recipe and report on how it turns out
Not big goals, true, but doable.
Happy Saturday, everyone!

I haven't blogged in a while because I was busy recovering from a week's vacation in Reno. All kinds of issues came up: lupus flared, arthritis flamed, diabetes acted up, and I didn't win a penny!! I even needed a wheelchair to make it through various airports across the country. But, thank God, I made it; I feel better and I had a ball. Then...
Yesterday my mom-in-law's computer caught a virus. I spent 6 hours operating on it and finally prevailed. All is in order and working well now. Cue the music of sweet success....
I think I'll operate on my attitude for a few hours and come out:
I believe I can, although fixing myself is not as straightforward as fixing a computer. I did not come into the world with illustrations, instructions and a virus-sweeping program. But I came with help and support from friends and family, a measure of faith, and the benefit of other peoples' experiences (like Sparkguy and folks).
Although a theme song would have been nice, too!
Blue Skies--nothing but blue skies, do I see...or
Time is on my side...or
The theme from Hawaii Five-O...or maybe
What a wonderful world it would be...
Something cool and positive and motivating that plays in my head. The minute I hear the opening strains I know it's for me, and it's time for me to take center stage and shine like the divine Spark I was meant to be...
Right now, I'm leaning towards "Oh Happy Day" because the computer is fixed! Or, perhaps "Here We Go Again" because the cable just stopped working...
If you had a theme song for your life, what would it be???

Well, by the end of this summer I am going to bear a close resemblance to a dolphin (or a large bronze prune)! Another afternoon spent wallowing in the pool and enjoying the beautiful weather!
This has been an odd week. I haven't slept well, lots of bad dreams and tossing and turning and waking and wandering around the house at 2 am looking for something to do that doesn't involve chewing (can you feel me??). It was HARD, but I managed. Read some motivational blogs and articles on SP.
But, it' s the weekend now, and something about the word WEEKEND is mind-lightening and soul-soothing. It makes me think about being out of school, hanging out with friends, going to the movies. Just relaxing. No deep thinking.
And I think that's what I'll do this weekend. Nothing profound. Just borrow a friend's child (since I don't have any of my own--just ornery cats), and go to the park. Do some simple thinking and feel the breeze and see pictures in the clouds and laugh at something (probably myself)!
That's it!-- I have a plan. It's called: "Not-taking-myself-too-seriously-this-week
I've been working hard and I need some slow time (again, no excess chewing allowed)!
The park has swings and slides and a monkey bar thingy; I plan to make like a KID this weekend and have FUN.
I think that's just what I need.........
