Most of the stuff I had to get done yesterday was accomplished.
The big aquarium which was sitting in a puddle of water has been relocated and did not ruin the table it was sitting on (another of DH's awesome custom wood projects). Apparently the aquarium lid overlapped a tube causing water to siphon off - so the aquarium is not leaking! That's a relief!
Today I get to move the living room furniture around to accommodate the aquarium's new location. Fun stuff.
The Press Release went to the owner and editor of the local paper yesterday. Hopefully it gets published in its entirety as I wrote it. I also distributed it to the entire neighborhood watch group, and feedback has been very positive.
So far as my SparkPlan, I'm on it, though I didn't get my walk in yesterday as I had hoped. But my goal is health and, at this point, that is not dictated by the number on the scale.
The scales aren't moving . . . probably because my body is about done processing the Chinese herbs to help with the bouts of IBS I'd been having. So far, I'll have to say it was beneficial.
I still get surprised that I have no shoulder pain! For so long I've had to modify movements, such as lifting, getting in and out of bed, etc. I still find it amazing that just a couple acupuncture treatments can take care of a 5 year chronic condition so completely. Woohoo!
I have so much to be thankful for. Among my greatest blessings is YOU - my SparkFriends. I know some people might think it's weird as I have not actually met 99% of you. But through our blogs and comments, we have come together on common ground, shared our ups and downs, fought through our struggles and celebrated our joys. Those things are from the heart. And that's good stuff.
Before I began my SparkJourney last year, I never would have believed that I could grow and change so much. The platform created by SparkPeople together with their powerful tools, SparkTeams and SparkFriends interactions, creates such a SAFE atmosphere to grow. . . . to change . . . . to make mistakes . . . to learn from them and to grow from them . . . to be encouraged. . . . to cry and laugh and celebrate together.
Yes, my life is rich with so many blessings . . . . . but I want YOU to know that I count YOU my SparkFriend among my greatest blessings.
