The Re-boot
Friday, July 21, 2017      3 comments

I slept well last night. I had mostly uninterrupted sleep minus a massive leg cramp that I am attributing to eating too large a banana. Bananas have a lot of potassium and too much potassium for me is no bueno. I have been drinking lots of water... Read more
Mid Week Update
Wednesday, July 19, 2017      3 comments

I had a couple of so so days at home. Not depressed, but a bit of malaise - it's hot as hades in the house (the ac is broken except in the bedroom), there is an overwhelming amount of housework to do, and while my mobility has improved, it is no... Read more
Dinner Out
Saturday, July 15, 2017      9 comments

Hubby and I went out for dinner tonight - Mexican - the food was freshly prepared and delicious, except they unexpectedly covered it in sour cream which I didn't care for. I mixed it in, because it was so thick otherwise, and I couldn't stomach ... Read more
Happy Friday

Yesterday, our power was out after strong storms, which prevented me from logging in. Luckily, it came back in a few hours. I have to wait until 8pm (EST_ before I can go to bed, because I am monitoring a client's show, but the performance goes ... Read more
Pushing towards my goals
Wednesday, July 12, 2017      5 comments

I am going head first. I lost the will for a while there, but I feel myself being back on track. Glad I came back to SP. Glad I am meal prepping. Glad I am able to move as much as I am. Need to keep at it! ... Read more
Knock Knock

Who is it? Oh I know who it is, it is my boss at the door. He got locked out of the office with the automatic locking system. There were still 3 people in the office suite - and I was the furthest away from the door. I got up and let him in thou... Read more
Forward March
Monday, July 10, 2017      7 comments

Today, I made through 2300 steps without my cane. I am feeling better, and getting off to a better start when I get up out of a chair, I do feel more easily to be able to make forward progress. I am still on my slow and steady pace, but I am abs... Read more
On my way to meal prep
Sunday, July 09, 2017      5 comments

I am a believer in meal prep. I watch my husband do it every week. I am not a huge fan of what he likes, and vice versa, but it is impressive how much he dedicates to making his lunches. I am moving towards meal prep. This week which is a m... Read more
It Happened in the Bread Aisle

We went to the grocery store on Saturday evening. I had a painful day and felt like i could barely walk without my cane (minor setback), so I opted to ride on one of the store-provided scooters. It's funny how your perspective shifts when you ar... Read more

What are you going to do today to make a move for YOURSELF? This very day, what can you do to advance your goals farther? You do not need to have ALL of the answers, you don't even need to have the end in sight, all you need to do is make the ne... Read more
Walk, Rinse, Repeat
Thursday, July 06, 2017      3 comments

When you show up for your own life, things happen. Good things. Day 2 of walking without my cane. I am not 100%solid and not walking at my pre-cane gait, but that is of little current concern. I am moving, and making steps forward. Yesterd... Read more
Hello Out There
Wednesday, July 05, 2017      5 comments

Hi Spark-pals, I hope all is well in your worlds. I have been absent from SP for some time, but I also realized I missed this great community. It is nice to see my account has not gone away. Rather than rehashing all of the past, I wo... Read more
Out of My Comfort Zone
Wednesday, February 15, 2017      4 comments

I entered a writing contest at work today. I have no expectations of winning - but that is not why I entered. I entered because I consider myself to be an excellent writer and I wanted to exhibit my writing skills, and to exhibit my love of work... Read more

Taking care of yourself as a priority can mean a lot of different things. Here's some steps I have taken that have pushed me to the front of my to-do list: I bought a pair of 5 pound dumbbells and had them shipped to work. They should arriv... Read more
The First Step is a doozy
Friday, January 27, 2017      5 comments

Stairs are kind of my nemesis. In the last couple of years, I have had a hard time walking down them. This morning, heading out the door to work, they stopped me in my tracks. They are the same 2 steps I climb down every morning when I lea... Read more
