It's been a while...a bit of a ramble
Saturday, September 26, 2020      5 comments

I finally hit 11 pounds down this week. My goodness, it took a little over a month to get here, but I'll take it! WooHoo! I bought a small apartment sized washer about 3 weeks ago. After finally figuring out how to connect everything and ha... Read more

After a very shaky start to my first week back on WW, and filled with dread, I was quite surprised (read Flabbergasted!) to have lost 8 pounds. I actually weighed myself twice just to make sure! I know this can happen the first week, and I ... Read more

Monday, August 10, 2020      6 comments

I woke up in a much better frame of mind this morning. Last night I planned out my day, set my goals, packed my lunch, and planned my meals. I got up earlier this morning and danced for 22 minutes. I'm starting slowly as I have been a couch... Read more

I've hit the reset button again in an effort to get myself back on track. I decided to go through the SparkDiet Spark Coach program again. Back to basics. I'm nothing if not persistent! ... Read more
The end of a wonderful weekend!

Made an early(ish) trip to Wal-Mart. Acquired what was needed, including the fixings for Mimosas. (Yes, they were needed! But not overly indulged in) It was gorgeous out and had I not had perishables in the car, I would have ventured out to Suns... Read more

Apparently, last week took more out of me than I realized. I spent the better of the morning and early afternoon dozing in and out in bed with my fur babies. I think I enjoyed it almost as much as they did! The only problem with me being ho... Read more

Last Thursday night, as I was sleeping, I awoke at some point to pouring rain. I entered into twilight sleep and then heard a huge BOOM. I figured it was thunder and slipped back into sleep. This is what I walked out to last Friday morning... Read more
On returning home to where my Spark is and apparently always will be.
Sunday, March 08, 2020      6 comments

I've been gone a while. I felt pulled to take a step back for a while and I listened to that pull. (not sure why, not sure where it came from, but there it is.) I’m even more unsure of why yesterday out of the blue, clear sky I knew it was time... Read more
Celebrating another NSV and strengthening lessons learned
Saturday, October 19, 2019      6 comments

Building on the excitement of my shrinking number of faire garb outfits from last weekend, I had another surprise today. I decided to try on a favorite teeshirt that had been a gift and was a size 3x when it was given to me. At the time I was we... Read more
