    Today has been a lazy sort of day. I have been recharging my batteries, resting and getting my exercise in. Tonight's dinner will be steamed veggies and air fried chicken drumsticks. Ed found them on sale for $.69 a pound so we got ten pounds and he immediately broke them into packs with two for eac... Read more

    My older son called today which I was happy that he finally reached out to me but he is injured again. It sounds like they don't know yet how bad the injury but it is his knee and if I understood correctly it has to do with muscle or something behind the knee. He doesn't know yet if he'll be able ...

  • Wanting to go back to old ways

    2/22/2020 4:28:03 PM, by DDDRIZA126

    Funeral today. Not my normal food selection. I thought I did better now than the pass. But I still have to get better at the choices I make. Yesterday at an auction with free food.. I tried something unique and I knew was wrong but really wanted to try it. Perhaps a calculated mistake. But I ... Read more

  • The Problem with "Finding My Why"

    2/22/2020 2:06:43 PM, by A-NEW-CHAPTER

    I've struggled with "finding my why" ever since I joined Sparkpeople. I've written about that before so I won't repeat my struggles here -- but my latest thought on the 'why' problem is that I can't see it. Goal setting always starts with having a good reason for achieving your goal. I state th... Read more

I could not imagine what life would be like with just one or two kids. And, I have to admit tha... Read more
