A Birthday Promise - I did it!!!
Hi my Sparkers....
Today I turn 45. I'm excited to finally be moving forward in my weight loss. I've lost seven pounds and I've been exercising a lot more. My husband has joined me, and he has lost over 20.
Last year, I promised myself... Read more
Paleo Day 1
I won't even talk about the ten pounds I've gained in the past year, and the 5 inches I've gained around my waist. It's sad, but I'm moving on. I'm going to be 45 in August, and I've got to get control. My weight this morning starting fresh was ... Read more
A Dream Realized
Ever since I received my first manual typewriter in seventh grade, I've dreamed of publishing fiction. Last August, when I turned 44, I vowed that one way or another, by the time I turned 45 I would be published. At the time, I had a draft of a ... Read more
TIme to Move On
I've been mostly silent on here. I've gained at least five pounds, and the pounds keep coming. Two friends and I had a good talk this morning and we're all three going to try really hard to motivate each other. We're g... Read more
Recovering and Moving Forward
Sorry I haven't been around much lately. Everything looked good with my surgery, and I'm mostly recovered. The doctor didn't find any masses or irregularities. We're not going to do anything else right now. I'm going to start taking progesteron... Read more
I'm asking for prayers and sparklove tomorrow as I have a surgical procedure. The doctor will be looking inside my uterus with a scope, I'm having a D&C and endometrial biopsy, and she's also looking in my abdomen with a scope to see if there is... Read more
I haven't blogged in a while, mostly because I haven't had much to say. But I just wanted to take a minute and thank everyone for the whoo hoos on my pounds lost. In the past few weeks I've lost four pounds. For someone who has been on a steady... Read more
Pity Party Over - Let's Move Forward
Sorry about my depressing blog earlier in the week. Sometimes you just have to have a good cry and ask "why me?"
I prayed for an answer from the ct scan, and although fatty liver isn't the answer I wanted, it's what I've got.
I track... Read more
Back to the Doctor - Answers but More Questions
I'm venting this morning so this may be long.
It's tough when doctors ignore you. Or they write you off as a hypochondriac, or just tell you that it's part of getting older when you know how you feel. You can't help it if your symptoms are ... Read more
It's All About Choices
I'm pretty pleased with a choice I made at lunch today. I went to a buffet at our college that is primarily geared to students, but they have a cheaper price on Friday ($5) for anyone. They have a fabulous salad bar, and like most colleges, hav... Read more
Asking about Smoothies
Anyone got any good recipes for breakfast that aren't too difficult or use really bizarre ingredients? I'm looking for protein and delish.... Read more
FitBit and Sparking!!!
Okay, several of you may have heard me talk about the fitbit for a while now. It's a little bitty pedometer that I wear on my waist all the time. I've had it for two years now, and I love it. It's that extra burst my conscience needs. "No, you... Read more
Control Alt Delete
I'm doing a reboot today. My lazy, slug-like fatitude has got to stop. I saw that word in a SP blog this morning and it fits me.
I have to start tracking food and exercising more and stop making OCD excuses for why I'm not doing either.

Taking a Mental Break to Regroup
Good morning sparkers and welcome to fall!! Not fall, really, in terms of temperatures, but fall in terms of school starting back for those of us with kids.
While I have been somewhat active in terms of non-fitness, I haven't done much in ... Read more

On Eating Out... Or NOT!
Good morning sparkers!
I haven't written a lot of blogs in the past few weeks, primarily because I don't feel like I'm making any headway in my quest to be healthier. But I feel like I may be turning a mental corner, so I thought I would sh... Read more
