yes you can

Sunday, June 30, 2013      4 comments

Eight or so years ago, I didn't think I "could" either. I believed I was stuck, unchangeable, impossible. It isn't so. Yes, you can. Yes, I can. Sometimes, it just takes that one person who will believe in us. (For me, that was my husb... Read more

Variation On A Theme By Rilke (by Denise Levertov) (The Book of Hours, Book I, Poem 1, Stanza 1) A certain day became a presence to me; there it was, confronting me -- a sky, air, light: a being. And before it started to de... Read more

So...how'd I do on my goals? My goals from January 17 through Friday January 25 were: 1.) Steer clear as much as possible from the area where I know darned well co-workers set out the treats to be shared. I did well on that one! ... Read more

back-on-track goals

Thursday, January 17, 2013      1 comments

I have noticed that too many "little extras" have been inveigling their way into my diet lately. Too many times have "just a little taste" added up too quickly. Yesterday, for instance it was salami and crackers that someone brought in to wor... Read more

"Patiently. Persistently." Two years ago I was at a Vipassana meditation site in Illinois for ten days. We listened to the teacher's recorded voice saying those words over and over again; "Patiently. Persistently." as we sat in posture f... Read more

hunger

Sunday, June 24, 2012      2 comments

Hunger is not an evil thing. I am realizing this. An appetite is a sign of vitality, of life and even of health, isn't it? When we are sick we certainly tend not to be hungry. So, hunger in and of itself is not the enemy. It is a simpl... Read more

QUESTION: Anyone a kettlebeller? :)

Hi everyone! I've been pretty slack on Sparking lately, I know. I am keeping up with my cardio (I seem to have that part down, lately) and I'm doing my best to eat right. Hubby and I still have gym memberships (for a little while yet), but we ... Read more

Tuesday, April 05, 2011      3 comments

I'm sure that at some point in my life I've mentioned it to people before...but it bears repeating: Whoever it was that first figured out that apples and cinnamon go together was a GENIUS. Tonight I had an apple, cut in quarters and microwaved ... Read more

It looks like we have come to an agreement with the downstairs neighbors regarding the elliptical machine. Thank Heaven. We moved it into the spare room-guest room-computer room (it goes by many names) and put some extra rug padding under it. ... Read more

Wednesday, December 08, 2010      3 comments

So... I got home from work last night and my husband told me about a letter he received from our downstairs neighbor. A copy was evidently sent to the owner of our apartment building. The letter mentions my elliptical machine and how its ... Read more
