I think I have become invisible to my friends and family. Forever helping them with a problem, not being heard by them if I have one. Feeling sorry for myself? You bet. I feel so sorry for myself, that not even my own mother would remember from ... Read more
Spring is in the air
We all had a wonderful family day yesterday. We hung out, joked a lot, laughed a lot, enjoyed some nice conversations, deep and shallow, and then took a nap. When we all woke up again, we decided to go the YMCA to work out together. I love those... Read more
Last night, I was tossing and turning, and waking up every hour thinking I made the wrong job choice, and feeling terrible, and lost. What is going on? I was so excited about it, and when I called my mother yesterday, she was basically saying th... Read more
Found a job....
Just call me crazy. I didn't even wait to see if they wanted to hire me at the gloomy powerstruggle suit place. I don't think I have time for that stuff. I accepted a job as kennel technician/daycare worker at a big veterinary hospital in the ar... Read more
I am in the process of finding a new job. My dearest boss Bill has decided to retire and close down his business, or sell it if he can. I would love to take him with me, he was a darling to work for! On the other hand, I will be able to finally ... Read more
A wild wild week.
I have not been on Sparkpeople for a few days, and I really missed it....
so update. I am dogsitting my friends 14 week old Boxer puppy Brandy, while she is in Aruba. And having 3 dogs in the house really is quite a big thing for me.. I am enj... Read more
After years of wanting to join, we finally as a family decided it would be great to do so. Our YMCA offers everything from aerobics, yoga, step (my favorite, although I will have to watch those turns because of my knees), water aerobics, ice rin... Read more
In sickness and in health
I have been sick for a few days now, and guess what I have found out about myself. I am no longer on a diet, I am living Spark. Every decision I make, I think through first. I consciously drink my water or herb tea, I have a stretch band next to... Read more
My mantra to my girls..... "The only thing you should strive to achieve in life is HAPPINESS". Many of my friends do not agree. They think that that would lead to people who are essentially stepping on other people to get what they want. But tr... Read more
Great snow storm is here. I already shoveled 40 minutes and was proud to track the minutes. I never thought that apart from the fact that I have always enjoyed playing in freshly fallen snow (until I get cold that is), I would derive so much ple... Read more
Friends on Spark
I have to say that my friends on Spark are invaluable to me. After being so down yesterday after that weight post, I realized what actually got me upset to the core, and that post about the weight was just the tip of the ice berg for an interest... Read more
The weight ticker fiasco.
I just read a post in one of my groups where someone pointed out to me that my weight is creeping up and I should watch what I eat. That really hurt my feelings a lot. It actually surprised me how much I felt my privacy was invaded. I took the t... Read more
Pilates makes me feel....
.... just wonderful. I did that 11 minute CD yesterday, just lounging out in front of the fireplace with my puppies (they didn't do Pilates, they are a bit stiff), and today, I not only noticed that I can feel all my muscles, but also that I am ... Read more
Picking up the pace
I am doing so well. I just keep on going. That is all I needed to learn, I think. Just keep on going. No wasted time thinking what I could have done better, no wasted breath complaining about how I made choices I shouldn't have, no feeling bad a... Read more
In the company of great friends
And there is yet more to learn. I have wonderful friends who love to come up, spend the weekend in the country, brunch with us and chat the day away. They are over 300 pounds each, and love to eat the good stuff. I noticed that I feel bad for ea... Read more
