Amazing to think that each of us was created for a purpose. Makes me stand still. We walk, talk, work, play, live and love our purpose if, that is, we choose to shine the light of Him who knows the purpose He has for us. Purpose has for its s... Read more

Wow, I got lost in the fog and clog of a head cold that lasted for a week...the old grey mare ain't what she used to be. I wasn't able to or didn't track my meals; forget about exercise - I was just trying to breathe. What I gained was some of... Read more

A case of blahs

Thursday, January 28, 2010      3 comments

You ever feel like you're going to succumb to a case of the blahs. A case means multiples of the same kind of item like; beat myself over the head blah, I am so ugly blah, why in heavens did I say/do that blah (my big, fat mouth blah), I didn't... Read more

I sow, I reap

Tuesday, January 26, 2010      3 comments

I am sowing seeds in everything I say and do. Ouch! I am thinking of all the weeds I know will belong to me. When I wanted pleasing flowers or good grain or healthy vegetables I threw out words of discontent, dissent and malintent. My goal to... Read more

This stuff is hard. What stuff? The stuff of not stuffing. The stuff of high yield benefits. The stuff of health and peace and energy and confidence. We are all in this together. We are all in our little corners alone. I wonder around the h... Read more

Oh man! Back to square one.

Saturday, January 23, 2010      2 comments

Oh man, Friday night and Saturday was a graze fest. I am miserable in the middle and discouraged at my own sabotage of me. So I groaned and moaned for a little while with mental anquish at undoing all the good effort of the last two weeks. Oh... Read more

Tired eats

I love my friend who is 97 years old; I loved seeing her. I drove the 500 miles that separates her from me last weekend. My commute to work is also a drive; an hour long drive in fact. I met the middle of the week with reserve energy and I am... Read more

A fair start

Friday, January 15, 2010      2 comments

I haven't been able to begin an exercise regime yet (surgery - end of December) but I have been faithful in recording what I put in this dear mouth of mine. This alone has enabled me to have a fair start on my health journey. So, it has been tw... Read more

I struggle with forgiveness when the offenses are against me. It is easier for me to pick someone up, dust them off, encourage them to continue on when I am not the object of offense. It is easier for me to compel another to forgive themself a... Read more

In it for more than the points

Wednesday, January 06, 2010      1 comments

I have been sharing the spark with almost everyone I see...even the cable guy that performed a service call. Each has asked the question, "What is it about?" " is about revealing the inner self in the context of a virtual communi... Read more

I really want that!

Tuesday, January 05, 2010      3 comments

That gnawing, hungry feeling has a way of capturing total attention and even emits "I want" messages into the brain. I want that apple pie, I want a bigger portion, I want a second helping, I want this hunger to go away... Well, that is how it... Read more

New Path

Monday, January 04, 2010      0 comments

Sparkpeople have really turned me toward a new path. I know you have noticed how walking/driving a new path captures the senses at their height. I note more markers, low spots, high spots in all the new scenery rolled out before me. It was ju... Read more

Made it through the first day

Sunday, January 03, 2010      5 comments

There is always a little excitement when starting new things. I easily rode the high of the excitement through most of the day. Then night-time munchies gnawed excitement away. Now I only have resolve left. Without sparkpeople, resolve would... Read more
