Mostly I am glad I have Spark friends who continually encourage me to do the right thing for myself and sometimes scold me when I don't ... Read more

I had an epiphany this morning. I have time to care for myself, and I am doing so. In the years since 1999 I'd been helping caring for first my ill mom, to her death in 2001, then my MIL, to her death in 2005. From 2002 it was my dad ... Read more
Spark teams; no time to play in the sandbox.
Saturday, July 12, 2014      9 comments

As I clicked the flags to give points I thought about not playing with my teams. I've met a few friends on teams. My interests change as do the challenges of life. I simply do not have the time to visit and participate. Some of you on... Read more

I got off my chair and out the door. I just started running. I ran to the end of the drive and kept on going. I got to end of the street and kept going. HaHaHa! It wasn't quite like that but the Forrest Gump scene kept playing in... Read more
Childhood memories-walking, exercise and eating right
Wednesday, July 09, 2014      6 comments

Thanks, ONEKIDSMOM! Again, your hammer went down on the nail. My life WAS exercise! In the summer I walked or biked to the creek or the bay, 1 mile in either direction, to crab, fish or swim on the days Mom didn't drag us to the beach. At ... Read more
Day 4 Taking control
Tuesday, July 08, 2014      6 comments

Yep. Guns blazing, up in the saddle, hooves spewing dirt clods on the trail behind me. Whoa, partner, this wind up toy isn't ready for THAT! I did sweat profusely on my walk- cut one minute off my 1.38 mile path. I don't think I can wa... Read more

I finished the last of my ice cream tonight. It snuck back into my diet although I finally tossed the container that sat in the freezer for 4 months. I took off 20 pounds and have gained back 4. Here goes...with edits to keep it current. ... Read more
Enjoying a glorious summer
Sunday, July 06, 2014      8 comments

The current temperature at 6 am is 62! Warm, clear 80-85F days and cool, dry nights. This is the kind of weather I dream about, go to the mountains or high desert for. Even the neighborhood birds are singing late into the season. Usuall... Read more
A job completed, well done and complete with sutures.

It was a perfect morning to complete a project started...20 years ago? Moving the old freezer out cause a ripple effect. If we hooked the wire up to the outlet by the garage door we could close up this box and be done with it, DH says. I'... Read more
Random sunset pictures

I was looking for something specific this morning and came across a theme of sunset pictures. I had far less than I thought, but am getting better at them. St Petes Beach, FL ... Read more

Thanks, I feel better now. Couldn't take my walk this morning as I was, well, suffering the effects of NJ Turnpike fried chicken. No, it wasn't road kill....that tastes different. Nothing like driving 2 hours in a rainstorm on the turnpike... Read more
4 days straight off the couch
Wednesday, July 02, 2014      11 comments

I hate to say it but I'm exercising because I'm pissed-off. The constant care of family members, the expectations of work and spouse are causing me to rebel. Ok, I got it. No one is going to take care of me but me. So, for 30 minutes... Read more
Day 2 of off the couch
Sunday, June 29, 2014      12 comments

My first trek out was 1.5 miles with a stop at a garage sale. Beautiful day and no real hurry. It took me 25 minutes. For those of you who hear me moan about no exercise, I do get some. I hate that it's in dress shoes. (too lazy to change from... Read more

Barb was one of my first Spark friends and I've been here since 1/1/2009. Talk about running? Yes. Talk about exercise? That too. Plenty of discussion about emotional eating. She is my friend. When did she become an athlete? She discusses ... Read more
