Just because I know what I do right an... Read more
I am doing something new - instead of despairing over weight-loss plateau, I've decided that I will instead focus on inches and I am PSYCHED! In the month of May, I lost over 11 inches - 4 in my waist alone. This is two years into my journey and... Read more
It has been a while since I logged on to Spark. I don't really know why I stopped except that I was spending so much time logging and such that I was unable to spend time elsewhere at work and home. Thankfully I've learned that I really need thi... Read more

Finally - it is nice enough to go outside and run / jog / walk! ... Read more
I'm still working out and watching my diet. Just been too busy to get on here although I know I need to. I've missed all of the articles and tips. Sometimes I get tired of doing the same exercises, even though I have about ten different things I... Read more
What is love?
A couple of things....
My children are love. Their pleasure in learning new things and accomplishing new tasks make me smile. Their snuggles and hugs on these cold winter days make me almost cry. Their laughter and tears... Read more
This is my first weekend off in a long time. Not from work but from extra - extracurricular activities! Needless to say - I'm enjoying it! My husband thought I'd be bored out of my mind by now but I'm not. Today I've worked out, made a healthy b... Read more
They say bad things happen in threes and this week it was true. I had an internal audit this week at work, three days of 'surprise' that seemed to be never-ending. The auditor showed up on Wednesday morning, after I risked life and limb to drive... Read more
All I can ask is: When is Spring gonna get here?
Okay, 1 & 1/5 ice on the car and roads this morning did not make me a happy camper and yet I enjoyed the peace I felt while driving to work. No high school kids running me off... Read more
Okay...I'm not Superwoman! Phew...at least that's out of the way and I don't have to try and live up to a nearly impossible self-imposed expectation! However, I still have some superpowers.
