So Sunday was spent in the ER ... again. Kiddo separated his right shoulder this time. Has a lovely bone sticking up (not out thank goodness) He is in a lot of pain...at least until the meds take over. Has an appt. with the Ortho clinic this... Read more
A tale of two suits...
So this month I've been doing things pretty much as we should according to Spark. Moving much, eating less, tracking and whatnot.
The scale has not budged. Now, I'm not going to lie to y'all and say that I don't care about that. I do. I... Read more
Do It Anyway...
So lately, my subconscious has been trying to undermine me. If you've kept up with past blogs, my life has been...well...weird...and hectic. I could feel my mind trying to wage war within.
"Take it easy."
"We have time for that later... Read more
Long Time No Blog!
I can't believe I've gone this long without blogging. Tells you we've been rather busy huh?
First...the little thing that is driving me NUTS! Skin rash. There is a saying that even the mightiest predators can be taken down my the smalles... Read more
So...if you haven't seen the fleeting and random updates my past two weeks in bullets:
* My husband asked to come back. Threw me for a loop. My anxiety went through the roof again.
* Birthday - Felt stronger than I had in a few yea... Read more
Watch out for that tree!
So I woke up exhausted. My dreams? Ziplining! Never done it, but mother just got back from Hawaii and had tried it. My dreams were all about ziplining through wooded areas and trying to catch my son....who all I could hear was "WOOOOOHOOOOOH... Read more
Mixed Bag O Nuts
Life sure isn't slowing down for us. Mom's house is definitely sold. Gotta be cleared by June 15th. That doesn't give us much time and I'm sure there will be tears and sore muscles.
I guess what I'll have to do is move all the stuff I ac... Read more
Yesterday, I went for my walk in the neighborhood hills and was planning on doing two loops of it. That would be nearly 4 miles. I did quite well on that first loop, made good time, enjoying the weather (although it was muggy and warm), enjoyi... Read more
It's Been One Wild Week
Lots of things happening this week and it feels like a literal whirlwind. From car shopping to house selling to house clearing (People really should do a purge for charity every 3 years or so.)
Mom's house should be sold. I say "should" b... Read more
Kick in the Baggier Pants
This is by no means a positive blog. But it is. I mean, that it is not full of unicorns eating snowcones and pooping rainbows, but it's flipping a switch.
Not that I won't regress because I'm fickle as all get out, but I am trying to latc... Read more
Ain't No Mole Hill
Today, my son and I had plans for Mother's Day to climb to the top of local mountain. It isn't a very vast mountain but it's a quick and nifty workout. Well, it was quick for him, LOL. It took me quite a while but I did do it. Gorgeous views... Read more
Just wanted to jot down my thoughts which are at the moment like flying squirrels. If my dog could actually see them as I pictured it...he'd be SOOO happy.
Anyway, self, I wanted to congratulate you for getting through your first few night... Read more
Mountains: Emotional and Physical
So last night I conquered my first night of being alone. Now, I've been alone before mind you, between the ex working nights and my kid going on sleepovers but this was my first one where I knew it was just me. Well, I did have my dog, and tha... Read more
Thank you to all the Spark Warriors out there who commented on my blog yesterday. Each one of you showed the capacity humans have for grace and compassion. Most people don't think of those characteristics as weaponry, but truly, when it comes ... Read more
Even though I am not on pace with my track line for my longer term goal, I felt confident in my accomplishments in April. With every thing that is going on, I think I'm doing fine. I've lost 5 pounds since restarting Spark. I've actually lost... Read more
