The first day of the rest of your life.
Wednesday, January 09, 2013      1 comments

I always thought that saying was cheesy. And I believe each day is a new day and part of the rest of my life no matter how long that life lasts. But today with it's sunshine and warm weather, my first day without internet in my home, does feel... Read more
Making a more focused and greater effort
Sunday, January 06, 2013      2 comments

I'm going to try something that's radical but has worked for me in the past. I am getting rid of my internet hookup. And I may get rid of my computer completely. I need to have more of a life than I do. It would be great if I could use the c... Read more

I am happy to be back on SP. I had occassion to read blog posts or check in to see what people were doing, but I didn't commit to using SP fully and consistently. I am doing some new things to help me continue to transition to a healthier life... Read more

I've been on Spark People about 2 months. I got excited about finding SP because it is so wonderful. I over-reached it many ways, but I didn't realize that's what I was doing until I started to get frustrated because I couldn't meet the goals I ... Read more
Interupted Sleep
Wednesday, January 12, 2011      8 comments

Here I am, awake at 3:30 a.m. again. This sucks. One day, before I die, the Universe may grant me a normal sleep cycle. I'd like to blame it on menopause, or stress. But the truth is that I have never had a normal sleep cycle and it doesn't seem... Read more
Nothing to Fear But Fear Itself
Monday, January 10, 2011      3 comments

When I was young, I was fearless. I rode roller coasters, went on cross country adventures, lived in different states, worked in a prison, even got into the middle of other people's fist fights to break 'em up. I was brave. Somewhere along... Read more
Self Approval
Tuesday, January 04, 2011      1 comments

I hesitated doing this blog because in my own (fuzzy) outlook I had decided that I had not done enough (made enough progress) since my last blog to warrant a new entry. Then I read a blog this morning where the person gave a warning not to read ... Read more
Proclamation Day (in South Australia)
Wednesday, December 29, 2010      2 comments

It's official in Australia, at least I think that's what my calendar says, Proclamation Day. I sometimes wonder what the history is behind official holidays. It's often not what I imagined. I have been doing my due diligence with SparkPoints to... Read more
Looking Forward to 2011

Boy, did it get busy fast. Some of my family members have passed away and the rest live coast to coast across the US. We haven't had a get together since my parent's passed and I doubt that we ever will. Too much animosity. But I have a wonderfu... Read more
Interrupted Sleep Cycle
Thursday, December 16, 2010      1 comments

Woke up at 4 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep. Eventually decided to stay up and do productive things, but then fell face first into a deep sleep in the middle of the afternoon. I'm hoping I will be able to get back on schedule with a proper s... Read more
A Lost Day or A Lesson Learned
Tuesday, December 14, 2010      2 comments

I read a blog post today about why making blog posts is important to your progress. It recommended doing it whether it's good news or bad. I don't mind doing it when things are going well. I like to keep it a secret when I feel that I've failed ... Read more
First Eating Out Blog
Sunday, December 12, 2010      2 comments

I had two meals out at restaurants today, not my usual eating at home food experience. I was nervous. But I did pretty well I think. One was a formal lunch where I had a protein, grilled veggies and a yam carb and drank lemon water. The other wa... Read more
First Blog Entry
Saturday, December 11, 2010      3 comments

I'm excited about the changes I having already made. I am drinking 8 cups of water everyday. I absolutely denied I'd ever do that or would ever want to do that. I think I was very dehydrated and didn't know it. Just sitting here in front of my c... Read more
