I realized this morning that in the last months, my life has been consumed with my June surgery date. Everything I've done or tried to do over that period is to work towards that date, and truthfully, it has taken much of the joy out of my life... Read more

Day 24...and I am quite sad to say that after 24 days of mostly good work on my goals, especially my dietary ones, I have hardly lost any weight. This is so, so frustrating. I really don't know what to do at this point. I have been tracking m... Read more

It was quite a weekend. I have to say, as far as keeping my eye on my goals, it was a mixed bag. Except for yesterday, I kept my eating under control in some situations that normally would have me in a virtual food free for all. On Saturday, ... Read more

Don't know why, but just as I was beginning to type, I let out a great, big "phew......" I don't know what that means, don't know where to start? Or things are good, or things aren't good, or with each passing day I feel a bit more nervous abo... Read more

Thursday, May 18, 2017      3 comments

When I began this particular series, I gave it the "May Day" title as sort of a play on words. It began on May Day, but I also felt that I was in a May Day place, calling upon my inner self, and/or my Sparkfriends, for a little help and support.... Read more

One of the most amazing phenomena I can describe is how the appearance of sunshine, especially after many days of gloom, truly does make everything brighter, figuratively as well as literally. It is so refreshing to wake up to the sun, and the ... Read more

I had a good day yesterday, kept my eye on my goals and made a kick a$$ dinner that my mouth is still watering over: boneless, skinless chicken thighs, creamer potatoes, green beans and carrots cooked in extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, gar... Read more

I feel like 15 days into this, I have settled into a good routine that has me feeling pretty good. Not that I am not terrified that my failure to lose the amount of weight I set out to 3 months ago isn't going to cause me issues when I go for s... Read more

So it's unusual for me to blog on a Saturday, but I think important to keep me focused on my goals. Yesterday was ultimately a good day, even though I didn't meet all my goals. It was good, however, because the most important goal, that of bei... Read more

I am so happy to be saying that the good times are still rolling. Now, before I make it sound like I am blasting through granite, let me just explain that "good times" means I am not off the rails and my focus is still on my little set of goal... Read more

I'm a little nervous to write this, because I feel like I'm on a little bit of a roll, and sometime I find when I talk too much about that, I derail myself. But I will take the risk, because let's face it, that is something that is totally with... Read more

I find myself fretting (my gosh, am I showing how old I am using that word? I think it's even too old for old me!) over the amount of time I've wasted in trying to get myself in "surgery" shape. And that fretting is getting in the way of movin... Read more

So this is my third, and final attempt to get this blog written. Computer has been funky, and I've written the beginnings of two blogs already, only to have the computer freeze up. Talk about ready to scream... Anyway, I've missed a few d... Read more

Today is a day that I want to talk about looking forward because looking back does no good. I had a very rough day yesterday, lots of physical pain, some bad news (not dangerously bad, but percolating stuff not turning out the way I'd have like... Read more
May the Fourth (Be With You) - May Day Blog Series - Day 4
Thursday, May 04, 2017      4 comments

My son is a huge Star Wars fan, so May 4 is a noteworthy day in our house. So today, I am trying to summon "the Force" to put me on a good, upbeat path, because that has not been the case lately. I had a fairly good day in my quest to make... Read more
