Going To Parties In The Snow
I really didn't think our snow was going to amount to anything, but we now have 5 inches where the wind is blowing and 7 where it is protected and it is still snowing. ... Read more
Party, Party, Party, Escape
I have continued to read The Spark and while I have not started my 28 day program yet, I have managed to complete my Fast Breaks the last two days. I am reading through the book and will go back, re-read and take each step.
Despite the h... Read more
Past Life Party
We had to attend a party that was from a past life and conversed with so many people from another era. Fun, but stressful.
Actually it will be nice when the holidays and the New Year are over and quiet reigns.

12/10/10 SP JRNL - My "Ah" moment!
I have been on SparkPeople for a long, long, long time. Far too long not to have lost any weight. I won’t go into My Story again. It is also long and has been written here before. I bought the kindle version of the book, because I will be tr... Read more
Reading The Spark
I meant to post more today about my goals and Fast Breaks, but I have continued to read TheSpark on my kindle and it is not ideal. I prefer to have the book to make notes in the margins and to go back and forth to previous Chapters, etc. That'... Read more
Red, Swollen, Pouches
Woke up yesterday morning with red, swollen pouches under my eyes and it is still there today. Not sure what I have eaten that I am allergic to. Of course, Thanksgiving brought some foods that I don’t eat every day so it could be any number of... Read more
When will I learn?
I have another day (today) filled with things I have to do. All because I haven't learned how to say "NO." Today, I am running from one function to another and only one will be enjoyable. I am even taking refreshments to a garden club meeting... Read more
Woke to the abrasive and irregular revving-up sound of a saw or some sort of motor at the new house being built next door to us. Not the sort of thing you can ignore despite pulling the covers up over ones ears.
That is... Read more
Tennessee's Cumberland Plateau
Today has been a wonderful day. Thursday mornings (normally) is the day that my hiking buddies go out for a hike in our mountains and today was absolutely perfect. Cool starting out and soon warming up so that we could take off the long sleeved ... Read more
Simple Circles: Life and Art
Slept late this morning. Very late and didn’t have breakfast until after 12 noon. My food choices probably seem strange to most, but suit me just fine. I chopped Romaine lettuce and put it on a plate, sliced a small pickling cucumber and put ... Read more
Listen and Look
This morning I went for a walk just under 4 miles and I didn't take the iPod or music or camera. Instead, I enjoyed the sun and the wind and listened to the birds and the squirrels and deer skittering away. I paid attention to all that was go... Read more

Morning Walk 9/15/10
I decided to take my camera with me on my morning walk and to add in a bit of a hike through my woods before getting onto the paved streets in my neighborhood. Here are a few pictures I took along the way. First hiki... Read more
I just had a good friend call and as an opening greeting asked how I was and was I staying out of trouble. My immediate response was that I realized that I had been so inactive that I was down right boring and that I needed to shake myself up, t... Read more
Need for Daring?
Woke up this morning with my back "out of wack" and in pain. I have no idea what I did in my sleep last night. My back has been good for such a long time. Any way, I got a quick appointment with my chiro and he helped. Now I am feeling tender... Read more

The Case for Play
Feeling good today. Second day of Eat Clean. Going to a lecture by a friend and gentleman who has worked for five Presidents on the Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. I'm told he is a marvelous speaker and his topic is, "The Case for Pla... Read more
