  • New Goals

    5/2/2016 4:00:50 PM, by DUCKTURNIP

    So it's Bright Monday. Pascha (Easter Orthodox Easter) was yesterday, and it was wonderful and exciting. But my weight has not been so great. I fluctuated all during Lent, even though I was making an effort to eat less and stay within my calorie range daily. One week I lost 3.5 pounds, and... Read more

  • Where Does My Joy Come From - 5/2/16

    5/2/2016 7:34:39 AM, by SCHNOOTIE

    Where does my joy come from today. .. ....found out that a treasured Sparkfriend (KathyJo) is out of the hospital, recovering and blogging again. It's amazing how I met people here who have become important in some form or other, and I miss them when they are not around. I will make a point today... Read more

  • My body will never be what I want it to be

    4/30/2016 7:10:49 AM, by MINATHERED

    One of the things that is hard to wrap my head around is that all the work I'm doing, all the exercise and the eating changes and water drinking, is that none of it can get me where I want to be. I'm never going to have the body of someone who was never fat. Even if I get the surgery for loose ski... Read more

  • The road to a marathon

    4/27/2016 9:55:37 AM, by MINATHERED

    I decided that I want to complete a marathon. Maybe just one - it doesn't have to be an obsession or anything. It's become a "bucket list" item. I just wasn't sure how or when or where. Well, I was looking at races online this morning and I realized that the same race that was my first 5K also h... Read more

  • I've done the impossible and it's made me mighty!

    4/26/2016 9:39:53 AM, by MINATHERED

    Today I rode my bike about three miles each way to go vote. It took me an hour of biking/walking (those doggone hills get me every time). It was raining - my weather app lied to me and said it wasn't supposed to rain until 9 or 10, but I got drenched at about 8:30! I forgot my Fitbit at hom... Read more

  • This is the start of a beautiful friendship!

    4/24/2016 5:25:40 PM, by MINATHERED

    My husband bought a Fitbit Charge HR for me yesterday. Already I'm in love! It is a little hard to get used to wearing it. I haven't had a watch in years because of my phone and because they'd just die on me a few days after I put them on. I'm hoping since that doesn't happen to my phone the electro... Read more

  • Sheila's Resting Place

    4/8/2016 5:06:21 PM, by WENDYANNE61

    My dear brave Sparkies, I just wanted to tell you how we spent last weekend in Scotland. About 10 days before my mother died, my siblings and I had a wonderful holiday with her on her favourite island, Iona, in the Inner Hebrides. She has been going there since she was 16 years of age...

    Where does my joy come from today..... .... hubby took a 3 hour trip to spend a few days with his brother, who is undergoing chemotherapy right now. Over the weekend he was hospitalized with a blood clot on the chemo port that is in his chest, and his arm swelled up. Hubby will get him all set ... Read more
