how much colder can it get???

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

I am in Virginia. it is 13 degrees today and icy. School has been out for the kids 3 days already in January. I am done with it. Come on Spring! The good news is that we have a local gym. We are trying our best when we can get out to bundle up and hit the gym. I am so thankful for that opportunity. I ALWAYS feel better after my workout (not so optimistic just have to push your way through!)

also, for the past week I have been counting WW points. I am so excited to be in MORE control of what I'm putting in my mouth. If you do WW and happen to read this, shoot me a post. I'd love to hear some success stories, tips etc. Thanks, Sharon emoticon


New Years Resolution before 2014 even gets hmm, that's right!

HI SPARK FAMILY! I have been sparking for over 3 years now and I am JUST STUMBLING across the article that talks about the history of Spark. God bless Chris for starting this website. It has been SO helpful to me. My resolution for 2014 is to SPARK more! Right now I just log fitness, water, size measurements and food. I am making a promise to blog more and to reach out more to others. I know that this will really help my success for 2014. We are a family. We are stronger together than alone!! Muah! thank you again! emoticon

    I have no clue how long I have been sparking, I do believe around 5 years. I find that going for the points to get to the next level helps me spark almost everyday. Reading that I am not the only one going through this weight loss challenge also helps. You can do it!!!!!!!

Shaken but NOT Stirred....

Saturday, October 26, 2013

no...I am not talking about a tropical drink at the bar..I am talking about my disposition lately. My life has changed. Two stepsons that live with us now permanately. Their needs are great and they keep me oh so busy. A grown daughter with many obstacles to step over as she learns to be a woman. An aunt and two uncles all in the hospital simultaneously. Although my job is not being affected, layoffs are taking place at my job that have changed the lives of many friends that I love. It breaks my heart. Well the long and short of it is LIFE IS CHAOTIC!! each day my blood pressure has been about 145/101. My usual number is around 130/90. I am prayerful but I am human. The numbers have caused concern for me. So I am going to the doctor for my check up on November 6. with all that's been going on, I have been eating without thinking. I have not been present in the moment.

God has shown me something through all of this. He's shown me that life CAN be hectic. However, He is in control. I must trust Him. I must lean on Him. I must refocus and take care of ME first before I can take care of anyone else. I am committed to being the best that I can be forGod and my family and especially ME. I am not going to uproot ALL the good seeds that God has planted in me and all the good habits that I have started for myself. I will press on. I am SHAKEN BUT NOT STIRRED... emoticon

A few things that I love...

Friday, August 16, 2013

Another spark member sparked my thought process today regarding things that she loved. I decided to blog about the things that I LOVE...the list is so long. I am making myself happy just thinking about it all.
I love quiet time to myself. I love to hear children laugh. It makes me start to laugh automatically. I love thunderstorms and watching them. I love the smell of a clean kitchen. I love scratching Peanut's belly (my Yorkie), I love my husband, daughter and two sons. I love my "glass half full mentality". It keeps me going from day to day. Finally, concerning me, I love my long dark hair and my smile. I also consider my "back" as one of my best attributes. I have been working hard to to define it and oogga mooggga...I am liking the results. I am sure the rest of me will catch up SOON. LOL, emoticon
