The Spark: My Purpose and Goals
I've been reading "The Spark" book and wanted to blog about my purpose, goals, etc.
I could have a different experience than most people starting out with this book. I've been on this site for 8 years. I've already used the tools, changed m... Read more
New exercise routine
Well, after my last swimming experience, I was hoarse for 5 days. That's the same length of time I was hoarse after the original throat surgery. I will give it another month or two before I go back into that chlorine filled room at the gym.

The verdict on swimming is still out
Well, I had a great time in the pool yesterday swimming my laps. But 6 hours later I became hoarse and developed a sore throat. I had these symptoms for about 5 days after the surgery on my vocal cord/trachea , but have not had any problems fo... Read more
Update on my life, surgery, and swimming
The main thing going on in my life these days is that my husband lost his job. Actually, his plant is closing...so about 40 people lost their jobs. Our second daughter will be a senior in high school, so we've decided that I will remain in Ja... Read more
Deja Vu or Insanity....you decide
Deja Vu means the illusion of having previously experienced something that you are actually encountering for the first time.
What's the word for feeling like you've done something before, then realizing you have? Oh yeah, INSANITY..... ... Read more
Perfect.... is never going to happen
I could have titled this "Perfect AIN'T gonna happen". I often use the word ain't when I'm making emphasis. When the topic of discussion is beyond the realm of ever happening (at least in my little world).
Anyway, I was thinking this morni... Read more

Stress Busting Challenge Team
I just joined Sparkpeople's official Stress Busting Challenge.
One of the things they suggest is to blog about what stresses you. I could go on and on.
1) Work - First let me say that I won't be blogging here about work. I am a nu... Read more
No longer full time
Well, my orientation period at my new job is officially over. Today, I am scheduled to work but due to low census was placed "on call". That means at any given time between the hours of 7am and 7pm, work can call me and I'm required to be ther... Read more
I'm feeling very blah lately. Not just lately, but for a long time. I've thought a lot about how I would write a blog post, or what I would say. I've just not had a desire to do it. I've not had a desire to be healthy, I've got no motivation... Read more
The start of a new year!
I've done something that I don't think I have EVER done before. I rang in the new year with a stomach virus. I'm absolutely certain that I'm starting 2010 with a weight loss! LOL. Not the kind of weight loss I would enjoy with all the wonderf... Read more
First exercise in a long time
Well, since I can hardly find time to exercise, it would make sense that I can hardly find time to blog about it either.
This past Sunday, my family and I ventured out to a new park we found. It has an 11 mile paved trail. We rode bikes,... Read more
October: New Month, New Attitude
October is here, and time is passing me by whether I lose weight or not.
I think I've got a new attitude. For the past 2 days I've had 8 glasses of water. and it wasn't a big deal to drink it. So, is this a new attitude? I need to BE... Read more

I'm really gonna have to think long and hard about why I'm not into the healthy lifestyle anymore. I lifted weights this morning...for 12 minutes. and I. was. done.
I just didn't want to continue. Where has my desire gone? My motivation?... Read more
