2015-Recover-Heal-Move Forward Spark People has been a great place for me over the years. Sometimes I have made great use of the resources and other times I've had half hearted attempts. But it is here for us to use and the fact that we a... Read more

The new year always has many people thinking about what they would like to improve in their life, me included. I read over my goals that I posted and I am not doing very good job of reaching them. I still believe I can come out ahead on most e... Read more
2015 recovery from 2014
Thursday, January 01, 2015      4 comments

I'm really excited for 2015. As some have probably read in other blogs or posts 2014 was a horrible year for our family. I guess in 47 years on earth and 25 years with my husband one year in the grand scheme of things is not too awfully bad. ... Read more

2014 - All about the food! I've been a member of Sparkpeople for almost 7 years. It took me a few years to really get into changing my outlook, my body and my life. 2010 was the year for me. I finally made the decision that enough was enou... Read more
My Journey to Contentment - not so easy!
Monday, March 24, 2014      1 comments

I've come to think that a successful life is a continuous work in progress. If you look away for a moment things can go south. In my case, I haven't been paying much attention for 3 years and now I am in a huge state of discontent. I'm not ha... Read more

On January 31 I decided that I would not eat any junk food nor would I drink alcohol for 30 days. Today is day 29 and I have followed it to the letter. I feel so much better than normal and I never really felt bad. I won't go back to eating j... Read more
Can I eat only real food for 30 days?
Monday, December 30, 2013      6 comments

I lost 53 pounds by eating 'healthier" and exercising. Although I did eat healthier than I had been I really wasn't eating healthy. Lately I have been looking into how I eat and how I can do a better job of only putting healthy FOOD in m... Read more
Skin cancer removed
Tuesday, November 05, 2013      5 comments

Last week Thursday I had skin cancer removed from my forehead. They used a procedure called MOHS that helps to reduce scarring but also makes sure that it is all gone before they close you up and send you home. It was a much bigger process tha... Read more

So I have been in a rut for a while. It's amazing what just a little bit of hope can create. We found out last night that we will be renting a townhouse that we really like. It took them a week to get back to us and the week seemed like two i... Read more
Stuck in a rut! Will it ever change?
Tuesday, October 15, 2013      3 comments

I'm in a slump that I really need to get out of. Exercise and eating healthy has become a big challenge. I feel stuck I guess, although I am not sure why. I have all these grand plans and when I wake up in the morning it's like I never had a ... Read more
So excited about all my helpers

Today I received an email from Fitbit about my 2012 activity. They had mentioned earlier this month that it would be coming and I was waiting patiently. I was easily able to do that because I totally forgot that it was coming! Anyhow, a... Read more

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      1 comments

I don't really have a verdict on how I think 2012 went. I haven't pondered it until now. It was a blur for the most part. I am amazed how quickly these last two years have gone by since we moved to Arizona. 2012 Review: -Visited home... Read more

What to do
Sunday, December 16, 2012      2 comments

I haven't been on SparkPeople much these days. I try but for some reason life gets in the way. When I was losing weight I was able to get on everyday. I don't know why it's different now. It's not like I don't have the time. Maybe it's beca... Read more
I've done it again. That's a good thing!

Wow, my fitness journey has taken all sorts of twists and turns. Some days I am right on track and other days I'm lucky if I can find the tracks. At one point many years ago I had given up chocolate and soda (all caffeine actually) for five ye... Read more
