I got Ma'am-ed

I've been so self focused the last few days that I have not been sparking - at least not in my usual way of writing notes, huddling, blogging and sending goodies. I have not veered off track, I've just been trying to recoup from a cold or pos... Read more
Staying on Track

Not the best of weeks; not the worst. Got sick, still fighting the edge of this cold, but making better choices. NOt stellar choices, but better choices. PROGRESS! My cardio has gone to hell in a handbasket. I walk, but barely at all t... Read more

I mentally lost 10 lbs of weight this morning for every step I took up the hill. I stopped at 199. I thought back to times in my life when I hit some of those lower milestones and reflected on what it took from me to get there. 1. Patience.... Read more

If I were to make things "just right" for me ( a la The Three Bears), what would they be? I would wake up happy and refreshed. I would wake up with enough time to get things done without rushing around like a madman. I'd have my ... Read more

Woot Phillies are moving on. That is good. The sleep deprivation not so good. ha. This morning, I have a staff meeting to attend which will resemble more of a retreat atmosphere. I hope to get something out of it. It is a "generational" class... Read more
In my Heyday

While driving to work this morning, I was thinking about how times have changed for me. Even though I have not yet lost a bundle of weight (but I will), my habits have become so much healthier. I stopped at Wawa (a convenience store) for g... Read more
It's Not About the Bike

We bought a Harley this year, fulfilling my husband's dream. I met my goal of getting on the back of the bike --- which to most, would probably not be a big thing, but to me, it was a hurdle. It comes with instructions. Step on foot peg, l... Read more
The Best 3 seconds of my day

It happened around 7:30pm tonight. I was walking to my car at work. I walked up the stairs (a set of 5 steps) like a NORMAL person. I did not hold onto the railing to hoist myself up. I climbed up, leaned forward a bit and did not feel anything ... Read more
Banishing the P word

My frequent quest for perfection has gotten me into trouble more than once. Initially, it sounds like a lofty goal, but in actuality (for me), it's a death sentence as I have a tendency to wait until everything is perfectly aligned before I take... Read more
It Doesn't Just Happen

You make it happen. Change doesn't just show up suddenly one day and say hey - I think you have been waiting for me. Nope. Change happens when you make it happen. It's all about me, baby. And I am gonna make it happen. ... Read more
Now What?

I found an old WW weigh-in booklet and realized my losing streak is in nearly the same spot now. I am eating much healthier than I have in the past --- but I still need a major overhaul and a drill sergeant to get me to exercise. What will it ta... Read more

The hot and spicy food fest was a bit of a bust. It took under 2 hours to get there so it was not a complete waste of time. We did buy some smokin' hot "ghost" pepper stuff that would burn a hole in the roof of normal people. Hubby Rick does not... Read more

Love what a great day I had. Set up a few errands - bank, post office and library in one walking trip and had to be back at 9:30 to train a new student hire. I got my stuff done, had a delightful experience with the post office dude...he s... Read more

Yes, actually it was all in one night. And oddly enough, I was sitting on the couch. Along with better eating habits and motivational tips, I have received an even bigger gift from sparking and fellow sparkies. Last night I did something th... Read more
Morning Laugh

Working many hours this week and finding myself short on sleep, I decided that instead of going to the gym this morning, as I wanted to, weird though that may be, I would instead do some stretching, from the comfort of my own bed. On pract... Read more
