Good morning, sparkies!
I'm continuing my happy dance and celebrations today. Woo hoo! Won't you whoop it up with me?
I got up at 4:30am (not intentionally, but I was awake, so I figured what the heck) and convinced myself I should wo... Read more
I promised myself I would celebrate my progress, so I am!

The stereotype is that men are bad patients. Well, so am I.
I want to be better immediately yet I catch myself in need of an attitude adjustment if I wish to make that so.
True, I am only human and it helps to remember that I am actin... Read more
I don't have much to say today except for a thought I have been noodling over the last few days:
There are miles between can't and don't.
There are some many things I could be doing and yet I don't - it's not because I am unable to do ... Read more
From a Thousand Pieces
I've been thinking a lot this week, from deep in my funk, and then at moments, not so deep.
However, I have been contemplating myself. Thinking of myself having my heart broken and feeling like it was shattered into a thousand pieces about... Read more
Setting the Tone
Sometimes, no matter what you do, you can't fix everything.
It's not stopping me from being optimistic. I am a person who thrives on looking at things from the sunny side of the street. Oh sure, I have my down days, but honestly, when I fo... Read more
Nothing to Do With Me
I think I am shell shocked by a revelation I've had in the last couple of days.
Growing up, I was mostly friends with boys my age. I did have an occasional girl as a BFF, but mostly I was a tomboy who either hung out with my brothers, and ... Read more
Yesterday, I ate 8 servings of fruits/veggies.
The last time I did that was 2 weeks ago. Back then, it took me the week to do it.
I am making many positive changes and enjoying how I am making those changes. For the last few months, ... Read more
Following my path
Not much to say tonight, except the corn, bean, tomato, chicken dish turned out great!
I did not get my butt up in time to hit the gym, but I did do 7,000 steps today. I'm on my way to being a regular 10,000 step walker. Woot.
I am ... Read more
This is How We Do It
Well, forgive me if I am standing here patting myself on the back for now.
It was a good day. I was busy, but kept my cool. I did bring my lunch, and heated it up in the microwave in the dining area - something I have not done in the 6 (co... Read more
On the Menu
I'm not good at meal planning. I'm really not good at lunches. I used to be fine, but when I fell off the bandwagon, I really fell off, and now I just frequently fly by the seat off my pants.
I told DH I needed to come up with something thi... Read more
Observation # 1 --- I am much less stiff and feel less painful if I am actively moving about all day. It's probably obvious even to the untrained eye, but it feels like a revelation to me. Active is as active does.
I am still struggling to... Read more
Gloves are off. I need to reinvent myself. I couldn't get out of my car tonight. I did eventually, but it took some effort. WTH? Seriously? I could not get out of my car. I wheezed walking over to my car, and yes, possibly some of that may be du... Read more
Payback is a *****
I hope I did not wake my neighbors when I yelled out, "Are you freaking kidding me?" when I hopped on the scale this morning.
(insert more colorful language here)
Yeah, it was something like that. I walked x minutes, I ate bags of sa... Read more
Visual Cues (Day 7 of the Challenge)
I noticed something last night, in the tiniest little way, my stomach is starting to deflate.
Call out the National Guard! WOOT! I was pumped when I saw that tiny little change starting to take place. It was subtle but just enough for me ... Read more
