I visited my SparkPage after talking to a dear Spark Friend of many years. She said there was a new layout so I had to see it. Things change, but I am OK with the layout. We are about to have a holiday weekend and it has gotten to be summer a... Read more

I have higher cholesterol again. I am taking a long term approach to the long term process of becoming healthier, not rushing into promises of multiple reforms. I have been reading SP articles, particularly a 10 part series by Dean Anderson call... Read more

Waiting for a family member to return from a week long trip. I have been home with dd and I think we are both tired of being out of our routines. Good: lost a few pounds and am exactly at my SP "starting point" once again, I am tracking almost e... Read more
