A well-known speaker started off his seminar holding up a $20.00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?" Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this." ... Read more

Well, I promised myself that I'd consider myself in 'maintenance' as long as I didn't fluctuate more than 2 pounds, up or down. And then the scales showed 3 pounds up. So, that's where it stops. ... Read more

I'm still maintaining. . . . fluctuating 1 pound up or down, and I'm good with that. I've been getting my major work-outs outside in the yard while the weather permits, doing clean up, getting ready for Spring (although there's snow in the... Read more

Decided to paint one of the walls in our hallway . . . Hershey Syrup, same as one wall in our kitchen. Taking advantage of the sunshine, I cleaned out some of the planters and discovered the pansies are still going strong. A couple already... Read more

The sun is bright and beautiful. Temp gauge says it's near 60 but the wind is cold blowing in off the snow in the mountains surrounding us. So I ventured outside and did some clean up in the garden and cleared a few fallen limbs in the back ya... Read more

Part of what's been keeping me busy lately is I just started a Neighborhood Watch group. Since the Sheriff's levy was voted down, we now have no law enforcement presence in our area. As a result, crime has been on the increase. Mostly petty t... Read more

The couple weeks away has been very productive for me so far as getting stuff done, but I've really missed my Sparkfriends and activities. I've stayed with the plan, pretty much, and my weight has fluctuated the variable 1 to 1.5 pounds fro... Read more

I have always been an over-achiever . . . .give me a TO DO list, and I'll get it done. But when it comes to self-care, I just don't take time to do it. I am overly critical of myself and usually put myself at the end of the list . . . .which me... Read more
