Wednesday, November 09, 2016      4 comments

Friday, October 21, 2016      6 comments

Yesterday was my 60th (gulp) birthday. It took me months of positive self talk to embrace that number, which I now have. Not much a person can do about birthdays, so we might as well make the best of what we're given. ... Read more

Just got home from a wonderful water workout ~ 90 minutes in fact ~ and my knees don't hurt! Moving in water is great for my arthritic knees. I pulled out the aerobic routine I came up with years ago before I left and went for it. It was invigor... Read more
I Made it to the Top of Diamond Head!
Tuesday, October 11, 2016      7 comments

YES! I made it to the top of Diamond Head while in Oahu last month and I felt so proud of myself, like a child given a performance award at school! It's only 0.8 miles to the top, but was a bit challenging for me. It was a series of switchbacks ... Read more

Hi Spark Friends ~ I know I've been hit or miss and absent for a while but that doesn't mean I've not thought about Spark and the friends I've made here. My computer broke back in February, and since I had to pay for a planned new kitchen,... Read more

My sporadic knee pain kicked up out of no where again late Friday morning, interestingly right after my doctor called with my MRI results. He said I may want to make an appt. with an orthopedic doc. Degenerative Arthritis, bone spurs, fluid on... Read more

Finally, finally! I'm back to working out. We had snow yesterday and it was foggy and cold this morning, but I had set out my workout clothes last night and vowed I wouldn't leave my bedroom this morning till I had them on! It's been so lo... Read more

I'm continuing on the right track with my healthy food choices and portion size. I'm measuring and tracking, and that's helping. It's been 12 days and I'm feeling good about myself! It's been a while since I've been able to stick with it longer ... Read more

Wake-up Call
Friday, February 05, 2016      5 comments

Denial is so much easier than truth when it comes to my health. I've gradually added on 36 of the 60 pounds I had lost from 2008-20013. Eating poorly and not exercising will do that! I had a wake-up call at the doctor on Tuesday when my A1C was ... Read more

Live beneath your means. Return everything you borrow. Stop blaming other people. Admit it when you make a mistake. Give clothes not worn in three years to charity. Do something nice and try not to get caught. Listen more; talk less. Every day t... Read more

One of my favorite quotes is from Mark Twain: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in ... Read more
