Last Day for my blog for awhile. Will be gone until August 7. Will probably have some time to check in with Spark on my ipad, although maybe best to take a total vacation from it and everything. For sure, I am not going to read any newspapers.... Read more
I am doing well on my trip preparations. Just have to pay bills and sort my papers (ugh), decide what to take, and I will be done.
Got some huge, delicious cherries at the market. They are great for snacking. I highly recommend!!!... Read more
Goals for today
Just realized I could print out my Spark goals and then check them off as I go through the day. That might help motivate me.
Revised list for today:
1. Prepare for Ashland trip.
a. Make list for watering plants, garbage collection, m... Read more
Another Spark discovery
I just realized on the nutrition tracker page, you can scroll down and see how you are doing so far in a day. Like before lunch, or after lunch, see how many calories you have had, how much fiber, salt, etc. I did not realize I could do this, ... Read more

Big, big goal
For me, giving myself a treat for achieving a goal does not work, because I give myself whatever I want!!! I do not feel deprived whatsoever. However, using this blog to talk about these questions is fantastic, because I found something I reall... Read more
This morning's Spark email had a bit about goal setting that was excellent. It said to reward yourself with something special. I actually cannot think of a meaningful, motivating reward for myself. I will keep this in my mind as the day progr... Read more
Double Monday Blog
Wow, setting a goal on Spark really works. I absolutely did not feel like going for the walk. But because I set the goal, I actually did it. You actually can see where I went from some place on this site. (I am not sure how to access it yet. )... Read more
I just love that Monday comes around and I can start over!!!! I was so great on walking and then last week I had so many activities that I skipped it, and before I knew it an entire week had gone by. When I saw my familiar haunts while driving ... Read more
Thanks to everyone. It does make a difference when we read each other's blogs. I just read the one from one of our team members who talks about using a timer. A great idea I plan to put into practice as soon as I finish fiddling with the comp... Read more
Trying to keep up with the blog, even though been too busy and feel rushed. Cannot stand rushing around anymore, and besides, if I do, I forget things, and also it is easy to fall. Very aware of this since the osteoporosis diagnosis. My cousin ... Read more
Went to cousin's house for another good day. But I am very tired. Since I re-tired, I feel like I am on a decline. I love retirement, but now with this slower pace of life that I love, well, there are just things I can't or won't do anymore. O... Read more
I remembered my camera so I will upload a few photos from a beautiful day yesterday. Foodwise, I did well, only eating half of the ballpark burger and fries, but then I got ice cream, and afterwards I had indigestion, so let's let that be a goo... Read more
When I sit down to do this Spark blog, I ask myself, "where am I this morning?" I have not mentioned Jack because this is a public blog, and it is a bit scary to write anything that is too personal. The likelihood of anyone I know reading it i... Read more
This is my birthday week, so I only have ten minutes for Spark this morning, and could not write yesterday or Sunday. Visit with daughter went fairly well. Party for me was nice. Yesterday I went on an Art Deco walk for retired teachers, and ra... Read more
