  • Adding Another Piece

    11/30/2015 4:06:07 PM, by ERNOINACTION

I appreciate the time off and ability to relax but, above and beyond that, I don't get too excited. I haven't starte... Read more

    Things have been up and down for me latley.

  • New goals

    11/10/2015 6:20:42 AM, by BOSTONBONNY

    It sure has been awhile. I think I enjoyed the spark coach program as it got me writing almost every day. I never did settle into a meditation schedule nor did I attain get my weight loss goal. At least I have not gained weight and do weigh 5 pounds less than last year. Woo hoo! I continue to be unc... Read more

    I think I like every season change by the time it comes. Now, we are getting heavy rains in the Seattle area. This happens every October. Then I get tired of them as the months go by and welcome snow and ice, if it comes, and then of course spring, when things start to dry up. But my favori... Read more

  • The Perfect Drink -- Finally

    11/3/2015 9:56:35 AM, by ASTRINGF

    One of the biggest obstacles I've been facing is I'm addicted to drinking coffee with lots and lots of creamer, and it is the creamer that was making it hard. I can't have that much creamer on a 1300 calorie diet. I've been experimenting and trying 2% milk instead. I've tried going with black cof... Read more
