I saw my p-doc yesterday, I'm doing pretty good except for my anxiety. Or at least I'm doing good this week. So we are going to keep things as is for the next two months, as they are part of my rough time of year, and then meet back and see how ... Read more

Made my first sourdough starter last night! Got at least a week to see if it comes alive or not. I sure hope it does! I won't see any activity until day 3 or 4, and the class on it said it could take longer depending on the weather (too cold) an... Read more

Whenever I get to this point in my insomnia I always think of this song entitled, "Who Needs Sleep." I'm not as exhausted today, I got like an hour or two of sleep last night and that was enough to perk my manic self back up. So I'm cheating on ... Read more

Good Monday Morning fellow Sparkers! Up at 0440, I decided last night not to work out this morning, to wait and see how my back is doing. I re-hurt it taking out the garbage (DH is supposed to do that...) and then last evening was walking to the... Read more

Today I will be strong. I will stick to my meal plan, and feed my body only healthy foods that it deserves. I will walk on the treadmill and give my body the exercise it needs. Today I will remember that no matter how much extra weight I have, I... Read more

"A setback is a set-up for a come-back!" I don't know who originally said it, but my old pastor said it a lot. I'm choosing to believe that when this setback hit. One of the things that this clinic has you do is a sleep study, before you c... Read more

I am absolutely a-flutter inside with worry/hope for my weigh in today. I was down two pounds yesterday surely I won't have gained two pounds in one day. Says the lady who just snuck a banana to eat. This is why I'm nervous. (sigh) So tomor... Read more

Hmmm, let's see... 1. To Save My Life. The doctor plainly told me that if I didn't lose weight, and do so quickly, I would not be around more than 5 to 10 years. There's a motivator for you! 2. I Want To Keep My Diabetes (type 2) In Ch... Read more
