Short Update

Wednesday, December 04, 2013

Yes this is technically a blog, no I haven't had 5 good days in a row and I am still holding on that. I have had a couple good days but a couple bad ones as well. I am not trying to break my rule, but I have had several people asking me how I was doing and what was going on so think of this as the worlds longest "status update". emoticon

I have had some great days, I have had some awful days... I am headed to Vegas tonight to take my Gammie home. I am going to try to enjoy but not OVER enjoy. After I come back from Vegas I am going to work hard to have 5 good days so I can blog, but between you and I, I don't really have anything to blog about LOL. I will say that taking a step back from the blogging was great for me because it allowed me more time to post on my teams and talk to people one on one. Most importantly it allowed me time to READ more of my friends blogs and really find and gain motivation from all of you! One of my Spark Friends had a GREAT idea to put an expiration date on my "spark punishment" of not being able to blog unless I was back on track with 5 good days, and I thought that was great. The expiration date will be Christmas time, so if I haven't hit my 5 good days I can still blog with an update.

I am still here everyday reading and learning and still trying and I hope you are all doing the same! emoticon

    You're doing great! The good thing is you haven't lost awareness of where you are and what you're doing. You are inspiring. Keep it up the good work, you can do it! You've come so far and you can keep going, one day at a time. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon I'm glad you decided to do an UPDATE so we could see how you were doing. I really miss reading your daily blogs and am really happy that you decided to do the expiration date idea. Enjoy your Gammie and Vegas. Have a safe trip. Can't wait to see your next UPDATE or blog (whichever comes FIRST)!!! emoticon

    Glad you went for the expiration date suggestion. Have a great trip with your Gammie. Wish mine was still alive so I could talk to her once in a while. However, she did live till 99 which was pretty good. She claimed it was the porridge she had every day for breakfast that kept her healthy. May be you could try eating oatmeal porridge every morning and see if it helps. You have to use the old fashion kind - slow cooking oats. Porridge with milk and sugar (or salt if you are Scottish). lol Look forward to your next blog.

  All we can do is keep trying to expect anymore is to have unreal expectations. We are only successful when we put a whole buch of keep trying days together. So you are doing great as long as you are trying emoticon
