A change in the weather.
Friday, May 20, 2016      1 comments

Sometimes a change in the weather can mean a change in your attitude as well. I have been on my exercise streak of 60 min a day for 90 days now. I have not cheated or made excuses. I have not had a break of any of the days. And for this I am pro... Read more
Gratitude For little things
Tuesday, March 22, 2016      3 comments

I watched it snow all day today. But I still did 90 minutes of exercises that I had planned for . I watched the big flakes float down to the wet grass and I was grateful I could watch it snow one more time. Little things that do mean a lot. My g... Read more
Sob Story

Boo Hoo, I have had so much go wrong in my life these past two years that I have not wanted to do anything. Zero, Nothing! The so-sorry list would take up all of my time just to write about. So I gave up. Period. I could not deal with all the m... Read more
The Autumns of my life.
Monday, October 27, 2014      3 comments

It seems that the autumns are a time of reflection for me. A slower time to listen to the sounds of nature. The wind changing the leaves flight. The rain patterning on the roof and the colder temps reminding that snow is just around the next cor... Read more

It's been a while since I have logged into Sparkpeople. I have been sick and in the hospital.I guess I don't have Celiac after all. I have two bleeding ulcers which kicked into overtime and I ended up in ICU. I knew I was sick, I just didn't kno... Read more
Excercise is no longer something I fear.

I have been exercising everyday with a base of 10 minutes and then I add to that. I really like it. I think how I can add to it and what I can do different on the next day. What I don't track is biceps curls that I do and leg stretches and thing... Read more
Super Sunday

Well, I finally did it. I went outside to play with my dog, Jasper and he was so overjoyed to see me up and around. I walked, on purpose, and he was so grateful. He had so much happiness to have me with him outside. It was like it was His Christ... Read more
New Calorie Range
Thursday, January 30, 2014      4 comments

I have been given a new calorie range. It is between 1200 and 1500 a day. Does this seem a little high? I have a very difficult time losing weight and although my clothes are baggy and loose, I think it is because I stay at the low end of my cal... Read more
Somedays are better than others.

Spark Coach wanted me to blog of my beginnings of being overweight (fat). It's been a long time for me. Sorry if I depressed anyone. I tried to keep it not so depressing. I have battled this for such a long time. I only know that I want a differ... Read more

It all started when I had my first surgery at the tender age of 4 years old. I had my tonsils taken out (with Ether) and screamed and cried from the pain. The nurses gave me ice cream to numb the pain and to comfort me. I know how it started. A... Read more
Where are you going, my little one, little one?
Wednesday, January 15, 2014      3 comments

It's funny how time just seems to evaporate and you jump through years and wake up one morning and ask yourself, "Where has all the years gone to?" And you think about all the things that have led up to this self-awareness and measure your exper... Read more
Overbored and Overbloated
Thursday, January 09, 2014      2 comments

I have just finished SparkCoach for today and SparkGuy says that we are an Experiment of One. Each one of us are unique and different from each other. That one of our goals should be to focus on ourselves and not try to compare our efforts with ... Read more
Happy, Happy, Happy New Year
Sunday, December 29, 2013      2 comments

This time of year can be a bit overwhelming and underappreciated. Giving family and friends their gifts and cooking their Christmas feast. All the riptides of emotion as you watch their eagerness at trying to find happiness in a world that is c... Read more
It's snowing big time, all day.
Thursday, December 19, 2013      5 comments

We have about 6 inches of snowfall today but I still got all my exercising in and drank all my water. I am thinking about Christmas but a little differently than in the past. As I watch the big snowflakes fill up the sidewalks and driveways, it ... Read more
Merry Christmas to everyone.
Monday, December 16, 2013      4 comments

I had given up on myself. It's simple. I felt the task was to overwhelming for me to accomplish. A Herculean task that only a very strong-willed person could even adjust to and that's not just little mousy me. I have no unique talents for exerci... Read more
