Still Here, Still Sparking and Desperately Need a Good Challenge Group

Monday, April 30, 2012

As some have noticed I have been "away" from the spark site for a while taking a much needed break from checking in and diverting most of my attention to getting myself back on track after on the move...I was simply on stress overload and something had to give so time here was what I chose.

Anyway, thought I would stop in mid packing for a business trip that begins later this am and runs through Friday...

I do miss the challenge group aspect and maintenance is a bear!!!!!!!!!!!

On the upside, I've kept up with my tracking in my trusty notebook, and I guess is was in late Feb I started using that same notebook to write anecdotes about living with the after effects of stroke...sometimes serious issues need a bit of humor and realistic's funny and has a ton of stuff about how my personal program and the maintenance of it has had and downs.

If you are reading this I live with a stroke survivor/diabetic who continues to maintain his weight for 18 months as of Friday, his latest appt wih the dr...

Anyway, back to packing, hope to get back here very regularly since I do my best when I am accountable to a website of all things lol!

Take care especially to my "old friends" and know I think of u often!

    HI Nan! I was just thinking of you the other day!
Glad you stopped by for the update. I have gone back to BLC. 19 just started last week. :-)
Take care!

    It's great to know that you are okay! I had been checking your page, but noticed that you had been AWOL for a LONG TME!!! I missed you!

Humor is necessary when you're dealing with stress. People often wondered that my family would laugh about things that my mother did during her struggle with Altheimers, but we realized that it was much easier to relieve the stress by laughing than it was by crying. Enjoy looking back over those anecdotes and smile!

    Hey, I'm looking for a good challenge, too! I haven't lost as much as you have, but in my third year of maintenance I find keeping off my 80+ pounds takes constant work and attention. I'm going to start training for a half marathon starting June 9th, so I've got that coming up. I'm trying to improve my consistency with strength training this month, track more completely, and reduce my use of artificial sweeteners. I'll keep watching your blogs to see what challenge you select. Perhaps I'll join you!! Best wishes with your long term victory!!! -Marsha

Snow Came and Went

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Lovely to see for a few hours the beautiful white back to work...but relaxing and fun for just today.

    Watching the snow fall, especially in the lights at night, is one of my favorite things. Only problem these days is that it snows to the north, south, east, and west of me, but has bypassed us completely! emoticon

    We had snow, then sunshine, then cold weather... now it's just wet and dreary. Probably will freeze tonight.

Watching the Grammys

Sunday, February 12, 2012

I've long loved to listen and appreciate music so much but it's been a long time since I've watched this annual broadcast and it's really something this year.

This caps off a day where prep for snow beginning this evening begins and we won't be going anywhere tonight or tomorrow so got soups and veggies and fruit here and ready to eat.

Having a good night so will say, goodnight/


BRRR as in Wintry Temps

What will me go faster..the cold..quite a snap today since we are not used to these unseasonably warm weather but I might have been really "hauling it" today walking...think I was half jogging and half running and no walking at all lol!

    We do what we gotta do! Good job on the run/jog -- I'm not there yet. (But I did clock some extra miles walking my "hall duty" in school today!)

Here and Tracking Away...Looking to Find a Challenge Team Soon

Friday, February 10, 2012

My life is just now slowing down...or rather no longer chaos filled and while I have done my best to keep up my own stuff here on Spark, I've lost touch with so many...time, or lack therof has been the biggest problem...

Anyway I am looking around to locate and join, or be put on a waiting list for a challenge team..loved being in BLC...well organized...loved the 5% team as well just have lost touch with so many and the goings on of these teams..

Anyway that is what I am up to..and making a grocery list for tomorrow's jaunt to the market.
