Ok, so I'm adjusting to the son living here. He continues to interview and is dealing well with his situation. My dad has bad days and very bad days but keeps his positive outlook and sense of humor. My blue funk is improving. So, why the A... Read more
Glad summer is over???
Sunday, September 12, 2010      4 comments

This has been a difficult summer for me. My dad has been very ill; near death at one point but the man has nine lives and is doing better. Not well; many health problems but hanging in there. His health and his finances (or lack thereof) weig... Read more
"Back in the Saddle"

During the week with my dad, I did not exercise and my foods were not the healthiest. I tried to make good decisions but choices were limited. Indiana cooking seems to be based on mayonnaise. When I got home on Saturday I was exhausted! Dra... Read more
Too Dependent on Spark??
Sunday, August 15, 2010      9 comments

I have just spent a roller coaster week with my dad. We (and he) thought he was very near death. But, God is not ready and, with some tweaking of meds and loving care, he has had a miraculous rebound. He is weak, frail, and very ill but much ... Read more
Hmmm--what am I missing??

OK, it's the end of July and I am back on track. Exercising on regular basis, eating fairly healthy, and staying well within my calorie range. Problem? Again, not seeing any movement on the scale. In December when I joined I fluctuated betwe... Read more

I'm feeling a bit discouraged right now. I seemed to be on track and flying high all of June. Although I still wasn't losing much weight I was feeling so much better....more energy, more upbeat, starting to look a little leaner. Then, the fou... Read more

This is not my original entry per se but thought if others use this it would be a very simple way to share so many interesting things about each other. Copy and Paste into your own blog, change the answers to suit you. It's really hard to only u... Read more

As many of you know, my dad has not been doing well lately. He is 85 and has numerous health issues. He took a very nasty fall over the weekend and this has been debilitating to him. We have accessed hospice care and caregivers around the clo... Read more
Where Have I Been?
Thursday, June 03, 2010      3 comments

It's been a month since I've written anything. I really don't know how you all do this. Most of you work a full time job, have families, exercise, etc AND you blog every day or so. I am retired and it seems I never "feel" like I have the time... Read more
A Good Week
Friday, May 07, 2010      3 comments

This has been a good Spark week for me. I have been thinking a lot about realistic goals for me to set. I decided (after many of you gave me input--thank you!) to focus on weight and health for right now (although I've already come up with som... Read more
Fresh Start

The kids have come and gone for the weekend. Lots of fun but I'm always tired when they go. We will be in PA with them next Sunday for the baby's (Connor) baptism. I have been working on The Spark. Highlighting; re-reading. Stopping to r... Read more
At Square One

Ok, so I started The Spark again. This works out well as some of you may remember that one of my beagles ate my first one; so I get to start over with brand new book! Although I did scale back some of my goals and tried to focus on baby steps... Read more
Time to be honest
Monday, April 19, 2010      10 comments

The past few weeks I have felt like a fraud. Not making progress in weight loss--stopping and starting my "program". Losing a pound or two and then gaining it back. I'm keeping track of my nutrition but not paying a lot of attention to it. I... Read more
