One...I'm cold alot more than I ever was. I was already getting colder each year as I was getting older. Now, I'm not missing that fat that's come off, but I'm definitely wearing a sweater and socks/slippers every day. And winter isn't even h... Read more

Although this may be a small bump compared to others; it's still a bump here. My 17-month old is cutting molars which is making him miserable, which in turn is affecting the other eight in our household. I've never had the other six children ... Read more

I truly know that God created ALL the seasons, but winter isn't not my favorite. When that cold weather starts coming in, oh my. Both my dear husband and I see ourselves spending our winters in Florida as we grow older. Give me the beach and ... Read more

You ever have a day where you just don't feel normal? Well, I think this is one of those days. Am I overly busy? No, not really. Is anything major going on? I don't think so. I really don't know why I'm feeling this way. Actually have fel... Read more

I just preordered the Spark book that is coming out in January. I know that at that time I will have been with SparkPeople for three years, however, I love to read and I draw a lot of my motivation from reading uplifting material. I'm looking ... Read more

Every Sunday in the fall after church (for about 10 weeks) we are off and running to my two oldest sons' football games. Of course, we all know how difficult it is to eat while you are out as it is...try the concession stand food. Ugh, down ri... Read more

I am sitting here in AWE. I never in a million years believed that I really could do this. I wasn't even this weight in middle/high school. I've always been slightly overweight and very unactive. I was never one of those who could play sport... Read more

One of the best times of year is our family vacation. We'll be leaving in one month for sunny Florida; from chilly West Virginia. We love to make the drive through the hills of Virginia, stopping to visit the swamps of southern Georgia and on ... Read more

You know, when I stop and really think about what all I do, I'M not even sure how I do it (except for God's grace!). I'm up at 6 a.m. every morning with prayer and devotions. Make sure my husband has a good breakfast and start laundry. See my... Read more

No, not from healthy eating and exercise, but from homeschooling. This mama needed a day to catch up on life. We are actually well ahead since we started back at the 1st of July. I do that for this very reason; sometimes we wake up and just "... Read more

No, I know that November isn't that close. And yes, I know we need to be thankful everyday. However, there are days that the thankfulness weighs a little more than others. Especially with my family. I love when God opens my eyes to see them ... Read more

I've always tried off and on to lose weight in between having the children. It wasn't until after my sixth that I found SparkPeople and it really made a difference. I was able to lose weight and get in shape. I kept up with it for about 4-5 m... Read more

Today is my second oldest son's birthday. Eight years. Oh, my! As each of my little blessings turn a year older, I love to reflect on how much they have grown. Not just physically, but how they are maturing into the young (soon to be) adults... Read more

It's morning like this that let me know that autumn is around the bend. I know that the temperatures will reach the 70's by the afternoon, but mornings are quite cool and brisk. In a way, it's really refreshing. I love the change of seasons. ... Read more
