I loved today's Sparkquote app Quote of the day, here's a link to it: www.sparkpeople.com/reso urce/quotes_translation.as p?id=300
I tried to paste it in, but it won't let me. So please go see it and be sure to read ... Read more
Ok, this is a VERY busy time of year. A time when I should cut myself some slack. I won't get into detail about why it's so nuts, just suffice to say it is. I don't have time to write all of that, ha ha, that's b/c I'm so crazy busy.
But I... Read more
That you'd tracked something? Written something down? Made note of something that you didn't?
I have a bizarre one today. I wish I'd had some kind of rough record of how long I let migraines derail me in the past. Why? Because this past one... Read more
I don't do friend feed every day because I have to balance how much time I spend on the computer with other life endeavors. But today as I was checkout out the friend feed and seeing all the activity logged by my friends, I wanted to say this e... Read more
I want to be that person who has the energy to say yes to fun things. I want to be the person who plans those things. I have been that person off and on. I'd like to be that person more often.
Yes, I know that life has responsibilities, is... Read more
Yesterday I was talking to a neighbor. We were laughing about things, and I told a story about how I woke up one morning a few days ago with what felt and looked exactly like a broken nose. Yes, my nose has been broken before so I know what it f... Read more
Most of my life I've done things in a very extreme fashion. A pendulum that swings so far in each direction that it's been quite a wild ride. But here I am at 51 and starting to rethink things. Don't get me wrong, for about 13 years, as long as ... Read more
As I am trying to get my mind right after a few days of not really following the type of life I'd like to live, I'm not going to weigh in.
No, I'm not in denial. I'm not unwilling to "face the music" at this time. I'm merely making a consc... Read more
Yet another diversion from my hoped-for series of the life I want to live. Or is it? Maybe I can tie them together, let's see.
My last blog explained that I fell off the wagon, but not how. To make that quick, I'll just say that my schedule... Read more
I not only fell off the wagon the last 3 days, I took a pickaxe to it and left it in splinters. Today I'm going to try to fix my wagon. I'm so incredibly tired, probably a "hangover" from not exercising or eating decently. So the way to stop bei... Read more
I plan to do a short blog series about the life I want to live. This will serve as a "getting to know me" thing for my new Sparkfriends and teammates on I Matter, but also as a way of getting my own head straight, to remind myself that I do have... Read more
I'm pretty excited to report that I have made it to the 7 lbs lost mark. Now, this may not seem like much to some, but it is to me. And, somewhat more importantly, it marks me going below a weight I haven't been below since November of last year... Read more
Aaaaaah, boxing! I love it. I haven't been able to do it for ages - not consistently for years now, but not at all for the last 7 months. I've had costochondritis, still do, really, but have learned to manage it so that I can do some things. Lii... Read more
This is the same thing I posted on the Balance Achieved thread in the I Matter team forum, so if you're a team member, you'll have probably already read this there.
I have been thinking, wow, I'm moving so much more than I used to, but get... Read more
There is a strange dynamic going on in my life right now. I'm guessing it's just adolescence making my (autistic) son do this, but...ok here it is:
Whenever I'm getting ready to exercise, he begins to "need" all these extra things. Like he ... Read more
