I lacked the motivation in the past due to a back injury.
But now since I have joined SparkPeople, I have gained the motivation to set some goals for myself, and to reach them.

No more sitting around feeling sorry for myself.
No more pain meds that constantly make me drowsy.
No more excuses.

    Thanks so much for your support on my latest blog! You're absolutely right, it's never easy to lose a pet, but we knew she was sick and wasn't likely to have a good family adopt her, so we made her as happy and comfortable as possible.
    I hope you had a great weekend! emoticon

    Thank you so much for the supportive comments. I've needed them. Yes..as the day gets closer to the anniversary of my Dad dying I just almost feel panicked how I will make it through the day. My husband is taking the day off of work. Maybe we'll take Baby and my Dad's dog Rinty - I brought him home with me from Mexico...he was my Dad's dog, to the lake. I am going to just take it easy...try to keep busy until then. It's been a lot of loss in less than one years time. I wonder why a lot. Yet I'm trying to keep faith...

    Thank you again for your kind words. They helped this morning :)

    Hi..thanks for dropping by and for your kind comments....thinking of you and all your company. At least the kids have their parents there with them... that always helps take the pressure off you..to be responsible for them.

    Good luck on your remaining 2 months...keep your spark going :)

    Thanks for commenting on my feed! I HAVE had some good spins lately, after a LONG, dry spell. Today I spun a 3 and a 5 but have to expect it after a day like yesterday! Take care and have a great Friday! emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for the comment on my "Journaling" blog. I sent his parents Week 1 of Kindergarten blog. It brings them up to date on what he's accomplished and things that I might have forgotten to mention to them when they got home.
