Almost There

Friday, February 15, 2013

Glad that I'm making progress. I've learned a lot about feeding my body, exercising, focusing on healthy instead of skinny. All this is good and all of it is thanks to SP.

But the animated ads on SP that make the pages load slower are making me kind of crazy. Okay--I was crazy before. Now I'm getting crazier. I think I need a break from SP. I'll still track food and exercise, but earning points with all the ads is making me cross-eyed.

    I guess my puter has always been so slow, I barely winced at the new annoyances! I guess we can be glad that SP seems to be gaining such popularity, so goes progress!!! When I look something up on my computer for someone, they say, "Why is your computer so SLOW?!?". I reply I am just grateful to have her so I can Spark and learn stuff. This machine has really taught me to have patience! To stay positive, I get up, move around, get more water, write in my journal, it has been an awakening for me. That's all. Keep Sparkin' Beth!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh good. I thought the slow loading was me and my computer!

    Some of the ads on the video are really cheesy. The guy with the frugal gym is annoying. I never thought I'd say this, but I miss Barry from Ford when I see the alternatives.
    I guess the ads pay the bills.
    Have a great day. With you on this one and love your new wallpaper.

    What is most irritating to me is the one that pops up in the middle of a blog and says join free........well I had to be a member to even get into the blog so what is the purpose of telling me that then? I agree it is very irritating.

    Switch to Firefox as your browser - it blocks most of the popups. The rest you can ignore.

    I thought I was the only one that the ads bothered. It is so much better knowing you aren't alone. emoticon Hang in there!

    I know what you mean Beth.
    I was heading or in a funk this week myself.
    It seemed like I was just behind the 8 ball and made me think of the beginning of my journey. When there was so much to learn. So much to read and digest.
    Everyone not understanding that I needed to do this for myself and that would take time away from doing things for them.
    I still takes my breathe away just thinking about it. That's how I've felt this week.
    But I just finished my three day shifts and had 24 hours away from work. I went to the pool and worked out for 85 minutes this a.m. always feels so good.
    Then I laid down for a few hours. Now I'll be going back to work for three night shifts which usually are a lot calmer.
    I think I came back from our lake fishing camping and going full bore into work just thru me into my funk. I'm thinking I'm going to get past it but have kept a low profile just the same. I'll get back to all my sparkfriend this weekend and get back on track. We all know what your feeling and look forward to you coming back when your up to it.
