It's been a busy several weeks, and I'm just now getting around to posting on Spark again...
First the breast surgery for a lump that, thankfully, was benign. It was still cause for concern, though; and I had to devote my energies for gett... Read more
Coming out of Left Field...
Unfortunately, I'm having some health issues that come as a complete surprise.
I'm so thankful that I've spent the last year "getting healthy," so no matter what the outcome with this situation, I'll be ready to fight it!

August 22 - What situations or stressors challenge you to run to a
As I've told so many, my fortress (call it my sanctuary), is my sunroom off my bedroom, that I created when my mother was so ill and living with us. She and my brother, who was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, had moved in with DH and mys... Read more
This past week was really a good one!
I started the 90-day Renewal study; and it has been so inspiring. The study, in itself, has not changed my eating or exercise habits; but it's caused me to think more about myself as body, soul and spi... Read more
It's Day 1 (Again!)
Tomorrow begins my 90-Day Renewal, and I'm really excited about the new challenge. I think we all need to change our routine, from time to time; and this came along just when I needed it.
The past two days have been wonderful. The trip to... Read more
Still Not Back on Track...
It's pretty obvious, from the fact that I haven't posted here in a couple of weeks, that I'm still having difficulty regaining control of my food and exercise.
This past week was the first week, since the beginning of summer, that I haven't... Read more
It's Been A Long Three Weeks!
Wow, I think it's been 3 weeks since I posted here. First there was the trip for the family reunion, then grandkids visiting, then I was sick for several days, then off to help DD for a week....
Thankfully, through all that, I've been able... Read more
Every Week Is Different
Good weeks -- bad weeks... They come in pairs! The last week-and-a-half has been difficult. I'm still trying to learn how to deal with "out of the ordinary" situations when I'm not totally in control of my eating and exercise possibilities.

What a great week it was, health wise!
I lost another 3 lbs, and I have walked 13 days out of the past 15 and have also gone to Curves a few times. This week I'm planning to do my regular 3 visits to Curves in addition to walking 35 - 40 m... Read more
Best Week So Far...
This past week has been awesome as far as my eating and exercise is concerned.
Thanks to Bonnie, on the You on a Diet team, and her desire to get the team moving again, I've been reinvigorated! I have been walking and going to Curves consi... Read more
Happy Mothers' Day to me...
Just a quick post, before I'm off and running.
No mother could be any happier and proud than I am of all my six kids! With oldest DS receiving his Master's this weekend, it has just reaffirmed to me that my kids are absolutely the best! T... Read more
Busier and Busier
Woo Hoo! Three pound loss last week, and am I happy or what? Oh, yes!
I'm really surprised, because although I didn't have any really bad episodes of eating outside my plan, I didn't stick to it religiously. It just shows that as long as... Read more
April's Gone and No Showers!!!
Wow, I can't believe April just came and went... It's almost summertime!
Hopefully, this will be the time of year when I can be the most successful in moving toward my "healthy me" goal. With all the opportunities to be outdoors and the h... Read more
Another Busy Week
It's funny--just when I think I'm going to have a whole week, to myself, to get organized, my calendar explodes with obligations. This coming week is no exception.
Tonight we took dinner to DS and DIL, tomorrow night we go to see our DGD's... Read more
The Blustery Day...
Wow, Winnie the Pooh would feel right at home here today! I don't know how fast the wind is gusting, but the huge oak tree (probably 100 years old) is swaying outside the window. It is clear and sunny, though, which gives me hope that I'll act... Read more
