COCOSAYS's SparkPeople Blog COCOSAYS's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community In my head.... It must be all in my head...or so I've lead myself to believe for quite sometime now. <BR> <BR> I laugh at myself when I stumble over my own feet and start falling towards the closest stationary object. I joke that I must be drunk when I slur my speech or mix my words (even though I haven't had a drop of alcohol). I think 'how stupid' that I sit or stand too long in one position that it causes tingles and numbness throughout my body. I think 'how lazy I must be' because I often times don't h...

I write this not to provide 'words of wisdom' but more for my own therapeutic processing. This time of year, I have not forgotten all of the things that I have in life to be thankful for but it doesn't change the fact that it's still hard. <BR> <BR> Last year, I lost my beautiful and healthy 14 year old cousin to sudden cardiac arrest. She died within min...

When we find out who the President of our nation is; <BR> 9. A day to be thankful that we have a President, chosen by the people (unlike some countries); <BR> 8. Brings out true colors people; <BR> 7. A day to delete 'friends' off of FB; <BR> 6. A time to realize that regardless of voting party, we must work together to accomplish great things; <BR> 5. A good day to re-evaluate our own personal goals; <BR> 4. A great day to laugh and t... Wed, 7 Nov 2012 17:18:15 EST Perfect Strangers Never really done the blogging thing. I'm more of a "personal journal entry" kinda gal jotting personal thoughts and experiences, or on Facebook posting funny, inspirational and heartwarming stories and pictures. But in order for me to take this journey on the road to a healthier life, I will need to blend the two together and share here...with you, perfect strangers. <BR> <BR> Family and friends, although I love them dearly, they don't necessarily understand the struggles or have the abili... Mon, 5 Nov 2012 14:18:48 EST November: More than Thanksgiving Most would associate November with the holiday, Thanksgiving, family & food, Black Friday sales, and a little extra time off work. What many forget is the 'meaning' behind Thanksgiving. Not only should it be a time of reflection of self, true thankfulness and appreciation for what you've been blessed with, it should also be a time when people help those in need. In the spirit of giving and doing for others in the month of November I share the following story: <BR> <BR> This came in an email ... Sun, 4 Nov 2012 10:59:20 EST
