My Fall from Grace (literally)
Thursday, February 25, 2010      13 comments

Ok, as they say in I Love Lucy, I have a lot of 'splaining to do. I truly apologize for being MIA and losing my spark. It has been diminished but not extinguished. A lot of the issue is that I have been out of work since December 1. I ha... Read more
Mom's Driving Test

A few times this week I have alluded to some personal problems. I want to let you know what is going on. Also, on the off-chance that anyone has experience with these things, I'd like some advice. Back in June, my 81 year old mother had a... Read more

I actually started to create this as a message on one of my team's boards but decided to make it a blog instead. I am sitting in a hotel outside Philadelphia right now. DH had to go to a lacrosse event this weekend. He is a referee and tr... Read more
I pre-ordered the Spark!

I am so excited. I wish it would come tomorrow. I haven't bought a book in a very long time, now that I have discovered the joys of my local library. But Spark People made this such a good deal with the extra giveaways that I couldn't resist.... Read more
I've been lazy
Friday, September 25, 2009      10 comments

And I am not proud of myself. It is not a complete disaster, but I feel like I am developing some bad habits that are taking me in the wrong direction. 1. I've all but stopped tracking my food. 2. I've been lazy about tracking my fitne... Read more
My daughter just got engaged

This past Tuesday, Sharon's boyfriend called and said he was planning to propose to her and wanted our blessings. I guess it was sort of old-fashioned thing to do. The only problem was the ring. Apparently his mother had given him a ring. In... Read more

I just got back from the hospital. I don't think things are good, but I don't think he is dying. His blood pressure and sugar are still a little too high. The biggest concern is his kidneys. He also had a blood transfusion because his hemogl... Read more

Dad is in the hospital

My mother called me at 8:30 last night to tell me this. He has congestive heart failure. A nurse came to the house in the afternoon to do an evaluation for some possible physical therapy. His vitals were through the roof. His blood pressure ... Read more
Going to a Chiropractor
Friday, August 21, 2009      10 comments

I have an appointment with a chiropractor tomorrow morning. I am posting this to see if anyone has any such experience. About 15 years ago, I had some terrible back pain. I mean, it was excruciating and debilitating. I went to a doctor. ... Read more

I started a virtual walk across the country on March 1. I had two inspirations. First was America On the Move. This is a great program, but you are limited to the trails provided. My second inspiration was a team walk across the country on t... Read more
8 Week Battle #5 Begins
Tuesday, August 04, 2009      11 comments

Yesterday I began my third 8 week battle. It is funny that the person who introduced me to this battle has since left SparkPeople. The good news is that I have met some truly awesome people on this team. The bad news is that I have been yo-yo... Read more
RIP Frank McCourt

This blog has nothing to do with weight loss. Maybe it does indirectly, only in the sense that it relates to the theme that all things are possible with the right amount of determination. I was truly shocked and saddened when I signed onli... Read more
A little off track
Sunday, July 05, 2009      7 comments

This was kind of a strange weekend. It was great to have the holiday, but I definitely went off track with my eating and lost some focus. Yesterday we went to the Mets/Phillies game in Philadelphia. It was the first time I was ever at a g... Read more
Michael Jackson

For some reason his death has really hit me hard. I am not sure why; I almost pride myself on not being any sort of groupie. Objectively I tell myself that if I died he wouldn't care, so why should the opposite be true? I always liked his mus... Read more
