  • An update: How I ended 2019

    1/18/2020 1:06:11 PM, by BLUECAFE

    It's been quite a while since I've made a blog entry. I'm just not disciplined enough to do them regularly. This past year was a very good year. The hubs and I are a few months in to our second year of retirement and we're loving the life! We have acclimated into our new "routine" which is to ... Read more

  • Toughest Goal Yet

    1/18/2020 8:28:36 AM, by WALKIN4JEANIE

    I haven't said much here lately because the goal I am working on now is the most difficult one, and I didn't want to say anything until I felt like I made some progress. I realized over Christmas break that the next step on my journey was to cut out or cut way back on alcohol. I knew that I ha... Read more

  • Hospital Trip

    1/14/2020 12:24:38 PM, by JUDITH1654

    Last night was "fun". I had to have my son take me to the ER with a pain in my side like nothing I've ever felt before. After running a multitude of tests (which all came out negative), they determined nothing was physically wrong, meaning it's probably all the stress I'm dealing with. (Foreclosu... Read more

  • Happy Sunday Sparkers

    1/12/2020 12:20:28 PM, by PORTIA70

    I hope that all of you are enjoying your Sunday. Not a whole lot to report today. I plan to catch up on posting on my SparkTeams and explore other content that I may have overlooked. Picking up around the room also. I have to figure out a way to let the people in my building know th... Read more

  • Have The Winter Blues

    1/8/2020 11:10:10 PM, by PORTIA70

    I seriously think that is my issue for the last few days. I am currently in the cycle of not wanting to do anything. I have good intentions the night before when I make plans to take on a task, but by the next day I have lost all energy to even get started. I would rather just lay here and do absol... Read more

  • Needing Exercise Support

    1/7/2020 12:52:19 AM, by PORTIA70

    The one thing I have found is not so much my eating habits as a problem. It is starting to exercise that is the single biggest obstacle. Trying to find out how much is safe enough for me to do, and to add to the fact that I have more energy one day then the next due to health issues. One da... Read more

  • I can do this!

    1/2/2020 7:02:18 PM, by FANCYFREEGMA

  • Happy 2020 Sparkers

    1/1/2020 3:27:07 PM, by PORTIA70

    I hope all of you had a safe celebration bringing in the New Year and decade. I had a pretty good time with the neighbors in my building. A few of us watched Rockin New Year's Eve and had a little wine to bring it in. It was not without events happening though. A few months ago, my friend a... Read more

  • HAPPY 2020 EVERYONE!!!

    1/1/2020 8:41:42 AM, by LUCKY1964

    I HOPE everyone had a wonderful new year and that we are all ready to crush those goals that we may have made a few new years ago. I have high hopes for this year and I know that the years before I have felt the same but I am starting to see some results and I like the progress so far. I hope to see... Read more

  • Getting Back Into Sparking

    12/29/2019 12:55:05 PM, by PORTIA70

    I posted in last night's blog that I would be back, and here I am. Did you miss me??? :) Today is a whole new day with new challenges, but we will get through them one way or another. Sometimes we have to go around the storm, and others we have to go through the storms, but no matter what... Read more

  • New Scale

    12/29/2019 6:37:44 AM, by WALKIN4JEANIE

    I got a new scale for Christmas! 11 For weeks I thought my old one was inaccurate. It seemed to be affected by the temperature of the room. So, I asked for an Aria scale that would sync with my Fitbit. I rather dreaded getting it, because I knew that in reality, I probably weighed more ... Read more

  • Was Gone For A Few Days

    12/29/2019 1:47:38 AM, by PORTIA70

    The last few days since Christmas has kept me busy, which is why I have not done my usual posting and getting my points. But I am doing well. I hope that all of you Sparkers had a good Christmas. I know that it is hard during the holidays when the stress of running around shopping, cooking, and spen... Read more

  • Things a friend can say and get away with

    12/27/2019 2:16:59 PM, by -JAMES-

    When we are with our friend Carol I try to have my notepad at the ready. Some of the things that she says ... So she was discussing a medication my wife is on for a heart problem, the drug is metoprolol. What does Carol reply with ... "That's a drug not dissimilar to what my cat Tina ... Read more

  • Wishing All Of You Sparkers A Merry Christmas

    12/24/2019 10:28:26 PM, by PORTIA70

    Probably not going to be a very long blog tonight. I wanted to stop in and wish all of you Sparkers a very Merry Christmas. Hard to believe Christmas is upon us again. And we are getting ready to head into a whole new decade. I have a feeling we will go through many changes in 2020, but will come ou... Read more

  • Monday Made For Housework

    12/23/2019 6:01:25 PM, by PORTIA70

    Today is my housework day, and this is how Monday makes me feel I usually reserve weekends for my relaxation days, but with a cat it becomes such a chore. She wants to be under my feet wanting to know what I am doing. A restaurant a block and a half from when I live was giving o... Read more

  • Learning To Start My Day With SparkPeople

    12/22/2019 2:14:32 PM, by PORTIA70

    I am starting my day by checking in with SparkPeople first, before I do anything else. It is not only a good way to know how far you have come, but also a way to speak to others who are also on this journey. They can be much needed support to get you through the day. Sunday for me is usually... Read more

  • Forgot To Blog Yesterday

    12/22/2019 1:11:58 AM, by PORTIA70

    I totally forgot to get my points and post yesterday. It was on my mind, but then I got busy with other things and went to bed. It was only when I woke up today that I remembered 198 My neighbor took us out to eat today and I noticed that my clothes are starting to be too loose on me, and ... Read more
