I am just overflowing with gratitude today. Logging on to SP and reading the loving and supportive comments from new friends really humbled me - I can't believe people are so giving that they are willing to take their own time and energy to brai... Read more

I have been at the doctor's office a LOT lately. I'm having elbow surgery on Tuesday, and my opposite arm has tendonitis in the shoulder (rotator cuff). Both hips hurt me, but they have ruled out arthritis. I have been taking pain pills occasion... Read more

This morning, I set the intention to listen to my body, to use the hunger scale, and to be mindful in choosing what I put into my body. I packed a healthy lunch to bring to work (I do work on Saturdays). I got into my car and drove to the gas st... Read more

Sparkpeople, I missed you! For two years I was gone, and now that I've logged back on, I can already feel the love and support and community that I enjoyed so long ago. Tonight I've felt sad, and have been having sort of a pity party, in be... Read more

I have just logged onto SP after a year and a half. Everything's changed, and it appears many of the people I was connected to may no longer be on this site. I feel a bit discombobulated, but I really want to feel connected again to other people... Read more

Well, it's January 28th and I feel as though my New Year's Intention (as opposed to a resolution, which I never keep) is holding up. I promised myself that this year I would treat myself well, body and soul. That means I am taking great care abo... Read more

Sparkpeople, I come sheepishly crawling back to you. I have had a helluva year, both major wins and challenges. I thought I'd do a little reflecting on things, and try to define my goals for 2012. I'm looking forward to a fresh start!! ... Read more

I'm thrilled to say that day 2 of being back in the gym was a success! I did 40 minutes of cardio (20 on the stationary bike, 20 walking the track), and a small amount of lower body strength training. I'm still limited on activities I can do bec... Read more

Well, I'm still riding the wave of depression, and right now it's on the upward swing. I really tried to stay present through that tough couple of weeks, and I was able to notice small beauties even when I wasn't feeling optimistic or hopeful. I... Read more

I am grateful for: 1) The way the light surrounds me when I’m sitting in this very spot, on the cozy couch in my little dining room nook I created. It shines through the big tree outside my window and dances around me. 2) Fresh raspberries... Read more

I have noticed something extremely interesting about myself. I tore my MCL on Saturday while at the dog park. This really adorable black and white pup ran directly into the side of my knee going a bajillion miles an hour. I heard a "snap!" and i... Read more
