I have an NSV! Yesterday, I bought two pairs of jeans in the next size down. Yeah! The jeans that I've been wearing were bought in the 1990's and that means that they have a higher waist than most of today's fashions (although I've seen some hig... Read more

and it was my gall bladder, instead. I saw my doctor yesterday, had more blood tests done and had an ultrasound of my liver and gall bladder today. All my blood work came back normal except I'm slightly anemic. I get this call from the doc... Read more

I've got a woman, calling love hate. La, la, la, la, la, la, la . . ." oh, sing it Kris. Right. After about two days of that in my head, I wanted to scream. I had a great walk Sunday. Walked at 3.75 mph for five minutes as part of my treadmill c... Read more

Thursday, September 06, 2012 4 comments
Spark Coach asked what is your true motivation. I think most of us would say that we fear going back to where we were and what the worst case scenario would have been had we continued on that path. It is for me. I've already written that blog. I... Read more
