Glad to be back!

I've been neglecting Spark for months. I joined Weight Watchers and have been trying out their community site. Actually, trying isn't the right word. Struggling is more accurate. Even though I am being successful on their plan I am giving up on ... Read more
November Goals
Monday, November 07, 2011      5 comments

My goal for November is simple: Spark. This is my busy season and I have a tendency to get so involved with what is going on in the studio that I completely ignore me. On the days I Spark I seem to make healthier choices so I've scheduled 30 min... Read more
Back from Candyland & Ready to Tackle October Goals
Wednesday, October 05, 2011      7 comments

I'm back after disappearing for a week. I went to Candyland and am coming out of the sugar induced haze that I've been in during the past week. Actually, it wasn't all chocolate and gumdrops but it feels like it, especially when I see my morning... Read more
New Fat Memories or I Need a Hug
Thursday, September 22, 2011      13 comments

I normally weigh myself once a week, same time, same day, same lack of clothing. My weigh in day is Monday but today for some reason this little voice whispered, "Get on the scale." So I did. To my surprise I lost 3 pounds which means I weigh un... Read more

This morning I attended the 2nd session in a Living Well with Diabetes Workshop. This week we did an overview of what I would describe as general diabetes information. I wouldn't say that I learned anything new but it was a good refresher. Towar... Read more

Ahhh, September. One of my favorite months. I'm ready for a chill in the air, the change of the leaves, and swinging into my busy season at the studio. I don't want to get lost in my studio and to the many obligations I have like last season. Th... Read more
Fried Green Tomatoes
Monday, August 29, 2011      6 comments

Anyone who has read my blogs knows that I am an avid gardener. This is the time of the year when I have an overabundance of tomatoes no matter how much I plan not to. I believe it’s the universe’s way to making me spend more time with my neighbo... Read more
Moon in. Moon out.
Tuesday, August 09, 2011      7 comments

I was just catching up on my Spark e-mails and I noticed that August is "sleep" month. I have dealt with chronic insomnia most of my life so I'm drawn to any article that might offer me a key to conquering this special little nightmare. If... Read more
A Gardener's Tale
Friday, May 20, 2011      12 comments

I like to say I’ve garden my entire life. However, more accurately, I’ve been surrounded by gardens for my entire life. I never really got my hands dirty and understood gardening until I was around ten. Even then it was more about getting dirty ... Read more
Royal Wedding Déjà Vu
Friday, April 29, 2011      9 comments

I’m an early riser and this morning was no exception. As my routine dictates, I navigated my way, in the dark, to the kitchen and put on a kettle for tea. I put the dog out and then stood on the back porch, breathing in the chilly morning air. T... Read more
1 Week w/out Spark? Can do. 2 Weeks? No way!
Saturday, April 23, 2011      6 comments

I had a very busy week this week. We had a big project to complete so I didn’t have the time to Spark this week. Normally, if I have a big project all of the other things in my life get neglected. Spark was one of those things this week. It felt... Read more
Good Week
Sunday, April 03, 2011      6 comments

I want to write a witty and entertaining blog this week. However, I'm going to settle on a mediocre posting. I had a good week. I joined the 8 Week Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge and I had a good week. I focused on my goals. I used the nutrition... Read more

Yesterday I returned to Spark after spending a productive weekend working in my gardens. I discovered that during that time a Spark friend had suddenly and mysteriously closed her Spark account. I can’t access the e-mail she sent; it disappeared... Read more

Yesterday I enjoyed a lovely day. I went to an annual Flower & Garden show that our community college sponsors each year. I meet up with a group of friends who love the feel of dirt under their fingernails. We talked about the plans we had fo... Read more
