Day 92:

Buying into intentional think and do philosophy. I am a happy person but easily distracted one.

Days are always hectic, but these are things that are going well:
Stayed under calorie goals ✔️
In the right support groups - Spark Teams and TOPS ✔️
Upped my water intake ✔️
Time consistent at visualize, plan and document ✔️

Struggling with regular exercise, weather is mean!

Did not do all on intention list tho, but when have I ever. I am a over planner and live a firefighter like existence. I survived, whew!

The banner on top of the page represents the need to be ready on a moments be healthy, to not waver and not be complacent.

Member Since: 1/14/2007

My Goals:
Lose the fat and be able to do a pull up. Be more effective in all things. Create value and Art

My Program:
Follow Sparks People diet goals. Walk every day. Push and explore.

Personal Information:
Sparker returnee: East Cost Virginian. Love travel, camping and home. Adore Art in all forms.

If a zombie mob was coming after you, you would want me there with you. I would be the tasty distraction to help you get away. Songs could be written about my slow pace.

Workshop is stuffed with tools. Mad with skills in all trades and forms. Currently trying to organize home environment into sense. Designer by trade but now I take care of an ailing parent 24/7.
Grandmother to five..

I am a good, adventurous cook but my dear husband is better -- No brag. I got to this poor physical point by cleaning my plate but now I am trying to do better. I am a happy, busy person but regular exercise bores me to tears .,, trying to change that too.

Trying this year to be a successful gardener. Note: I have a black thumb. However, it is obvious that a successful garden improves cookstyle, I fight slugs and raccoons -- I have nothing against them but they are winning.

    I’m following the same diet I was before, I’m just getting away from focusing on the food in my blogs. I get food obsessed, then I binge. So I’m keeping my diet simple, and looking forward to the scale.

    Thank you for the comment on my blog. Hubby would like to stay at his company a few more years to lock in his pension (assuming they don't raid it at some point!) He also has good health insurance grandfathered in there, which is helpful considering his health problems. If it weren't for those things, he'd find work somewhere else right now. In the old days he would have trusted his employer to fix this and make sure he gets the job he was offered, but modern life saps the trust from us all. So he just needs to know which way this is going to fall, so he can move forward one way or another. And thank you for complimenting my writing. You are a sweetheart! I'm trying to write seriously for the first time in my 50s. Working on a scifi novel, and trying to undo a lifetime of bad habits, lol. I'm in a few writers SparkTeams but none of them are active. But if they were, it might just be another distraction anyway. Just need to sit down and work. Take care!
