CHANGE - - - AGAIN
I have thought for a couplea days about doing this blog. So many things to consider and things I want to say. Have decided that some words will come and some will be left out.
The last 5 months have been difficult due to not being able ... Read more
I AM ME
A long time ago, I wore my emotions on my sleeve and let everybody influence how I felt. I learned that those were my emotions and belonged only to me. They were there only if I let them be. I learned not to let anybody else have so much cont... Read more
A GOAL WITHOUT A PLAN IS ONLY A DREAM
I hate to admit this, but 6 weeks ago I fell and broke my ankle. This put me down for a few days, and a little limited for the rest of the time. Of course, I had to drop out of water aerobics and had to stay off my feet and keep the leg propp... Read more
WEARING OF THE GREEN - NOT WHAT YOU THINK
No I don’t mean wearing of the green for St Pat’s day.
March is National Kidney Disease Awareness month and the color for Kidney Disease is green. Thus I will be wearing as much green this month as I can. I would be very happy if the wor... Read more
OFF THE POT AND ?
A few days ago, I wrote a blog about "poop or get off the pot". Just a little update on this blog.
I am extremely happy to say that I am still within the realms of my friend. She is wonderful. She is one of those friends that is dedi... Read more
ON THE POT OR OFF THE POT
In all my years of “battling the bulge”, I can’t say that I knew very many people who could honestly attest to NOT being a yo-yo “dieter.” In fact, the only one I can think of is my dear precious Mother. Momma was way overweight for the m... Read more
RIDING THE RIGHT TRAIN
Lately, I have been feeling like the passenger that was kicked off the train in between two stations and don’t know which way to go. Some times life just kicks you in the gut, but you don’t have to linger and dwell over happens of life.

GOALS OF SUCCESS
Well, this year is 3 days from being gone forever. As I look back over the year, I realize I let it go by without me. I wasted these 12 months and have nothing to show for it. Depressing, but I offer no excuses. The reasons are that I fail... Read more
CHRISTMAS PAST BROUGHT TO PRESENT
When DH and I got married 33 years ago, we had a combined family of 6 children - 2 for me and 4 for him. Our Christmases were rather standard. As the children, more none as kids, began to marry, Christmas became more complicated. The kids ... Read more
LET'S TALK ENGLISH
I do water aerobics 3x a week. I do 2 hours of aerobics and 45-60 minutes water jogging. For so long, I have wondered how many steps I take during that time. I start moving when I get into the pool and do not take a break until I have fini... Read more
BEGIN TO CLIMB
The holiday season is upon us and soon we will begin a new year. This is the time when a lot of baking, cooking, preparing of foods are most prevalent. Seems like the parties begin shortly after Thanksgiving and continue on through Christmas.... Read more
SPARK ACTIVITY TRACKER & WATER AEROBICS
I have read several blog reviews and comment reviews on the Spark Activity Tracker (SPAT). The majority of the ones I have read are really positive and encouraging. Most of the reviews concentrate on the walking/jogging/running results of the... Read more
HE WAS FOR ME
A couple days ago, a member of one of the teams I am on wrote a blog about blogging our different aspects of our health improvement efforts. She gave a bunch of questions to answer in a blog. We were challenged to a blog a day for 30 days.

MY SELFISH EFFORTS
Every day, most of us women face the same kind of day, just scheduled a little different - out of the home jobs, housework, cooking, taking care of family, exercise, computer time. And then we have left a little of what we like to call leisure ... Read more
THE FULL LENGTH MIRROR
I was just sitting here going through my teams, spark points, and reading blogs. Also thinking about what I need/will do the rest of today. My thoughts wandered off to tomorrow and the things to be done then. Now, stick with me, as my though... Read more
