I didn't take the last news as an excuse to stop taking care of myself and bounce back up. I'm STILL losing weight and STILL exercising.

I feel very good! emoticon

WOO HOO!! My A1c is back down! I don't have to go on insulin. I have a way to go to get off the meds entirely, but I'm on my way!

I called an early Mother's Day zoom meeting for our clan and we held it today. It was loads of fun. It was good to see everyone's faces and talk about everything and nothing. I love my family. I'm so fortunate.

I have one of the longest spark streaks I've put in for a long time. I'm also losing weight again. It really does work if I just don't give up. I am working on my thinking and I believe that will be useful in establishing better habits.

Sorry to see you go, Sparklingme. May your journey be joyful!

I've been back now for a week, which is a good sign for me. I know that insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome. Because of that, I'm trying something different. I've found a buddy to Spark with and maybe we can keep each other going.

Woo hoo!

emoticon 4-15-19 Today, after work, I took courage in hand & went to the Gym, after healing knee! (It's been 255 days ago!) BUT I did it! Yeah for me!!!!!! I only played for 30 minutes..... but what fun I had! Just being VERY careful! Elliptical, stomach press, knee presses, biking etc. Just plain fun! I'll see how I feel tomorrow. I HAVE been walking ALLOT & Pilates, but different mussels! Plus seeing people there of all ages, getting their groove on!

emoticon 2-12-19 I have had 2 knee problems, last year 1 from jumping emoticon in Zumba. (6 months before I could 'really' walk or get up off the floor for Sheppard Pilates again emoticon ) & this week the other knee 'popped' & leg pain was the result. (it's only been a week & I am SO much better! emoticon ) I have been healing from finding a video, my SP special friend IAMJETTA, recommended. emoticon It is a You Tube video, I use everyday, it helps my knees. I don't know how to 'link' it, but here is the title:

CURE KNEE PAIN. MASTER CHIEN YI LIN. FOUNDER OF SPRING FOREST QI GONG.
I keep the link on my desk top & watch it many times a month. But I know how it works so I do it on my own. This simple 2+ minutes has helped me more than anything! I hope it helps you, too! I am positive if I had learned about this power point, sooner, last year, I would have been healed faster.

I am SO very blessed & lucky to have found it. Another way SP has helped me SO much. While I was healing I used SP NICOLE's 12 minute seated core, workout. Still use it to stretch. It is fabulous! My SP friends mean the world to me! THANK YOU, for being apart of my amazing life. YOU make me a better, healthier woman! I appreciate each & EVERY 1 of you!

emoticon After reading AMETHYSTSTAR blog she inspired me to write:
2-7-19 I made a commitment to myself. I will Spark EVERY day, no matter what. I had prayed to find an answer to my troubles. Weight wise, especially. Then 5 minutes later I learned about SP. An answer to my prayers! I have done MANY things to keep this streak going. Today is my 2,519 day of SP, playing with this site. Even a spin that didn't take didn't change me! At the bottom of our SP page, we get 25 points for every 30 days BEING ACTIVE ON THE SITE. That is where I get this number! I feel SP changed my life. I'm here for as long as I can type, LOL! Chris's book, THE SPARK, emoticon is my connection! (I'm not on any other 'social' websites) Together we can do this. We CAN be healthier & stronger & continually learn & grow & support each other. THX for YOUR friendship, knowledge & sharing!

emoticon 12-10-18 My performance emoticon was so fun! Children full of joy! emoticon It is SO worth it to me to volunteer my talent to the nature preserve emoticon . I started this when I joined SP.... Chris emoticon suggested volunteering & I do just that! Every other month, sometimes more! emoticon I am SO blessed!

(side view of stage)

(This little girl came up to me & wanted a hug, after asking her parents, I did. She told me I was her new BFF, plus a BILLION FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF! Made my day!)

( I always have a number in the show, the children get to work 1 marionette)

(after the show, we have a craft ready for the kids, snowflakes, this time!)

(close up of a darling snowflake!)

emoticon Kisses to all! Check out my newest blog, dated today! Here is a little bit from it!

emoticon 12-3-18 Happy Monday! emoticon Busiest times for me (& I'm sure you, too). Several volunteer marionette performances ( & rehearsals) , the LV Santa 5K, Christmas Parties, hikes & fun, fun, fun. PLUS work emoticon of course! The weather is cold 35 emoticon in evenings & highs of about 55. emoticon My focus is on health, for me AND DH. He is doing ok, back still hurts him, but PT seems to help! I'm still doing all the errands & leg work. But I don't mind, I love him so much & he keeps the business going on his computer. It works for us! "Be the health you want with what you have to work with, & I will too!" a quote by me!



Finish Line of LV Santa 5K 2018, although I really walked about 6 miles! With my Jack-In-The-Box, (he is in my shows, too!)

Went shopping at our Good Will for black Friday, EVERYTHING was 50% off, even new things! Bought several Christmas presents, a new glittery scarf for me & several Christmas pins, (I'm a pin collector) I put them on me AND my marionettes!

emoticon 10-16-18 Today is my first week of re focusing on my 80-100% goals! I did GREAT!!!! 90% for the entire week! NOW I am relearning & thinking of my "WHY". Why do I want to release weight & my commitment to SP? Yeah for Chris..... GREAT healing for our BIGGEST motivator! emoticon

emoticon Photo of the "Christmas Present to Me", team, I will get when I release 6 more pounds & maintain it.

Yesterday my hair guy wanted to give me 2 BIG cookies & 2 popcorn balls, he doesn't take no. So I took them & gave to people who work in my UPS store. GREAT FOR ME!!! emoticon

emoticon 10-11-18 yesterday was day 2 of 100% days! I get a star emoticon in my little calendar! It use to be SO easy for me to stay at about 80% days. For years! Not sure where I stopped being focused on it, but have always been staying VERY healthy in my life style habits. emoticon

I am SO very happy SPARKGUY is doing better! Check out his Spark page, to learn how he made it through! It was scary for him & his family & all of Sparkland! Also, LUCY walked for 45 minutes! I was VERY careful to see what she needed. I'm off to work land, "Be the health you want, with what you have to work with, & I will too!" (a quote by me)

Woo hoo to you in all you do, Sparking, ESPECIALLY getting back into books. It's delightful to transport yourself into another world. I've been doing the 'post a book you love every day' meme on FaceBook and the hard part was cutting the list down to the seven needed for the week!

emoticon

Finished another 5K. This was a color run, so it wasn't timed, but I'm pretty consistent at about 45 minutes. Nothing to write home about, but I feel good about it. For some reason SP insists on rotating this picture. It's upright in my blog.

From today's new blog:
emoticon 8-19-18 Yesterday I walked our dog emoticon , swam emoticon AND did a 2 hour hike. It ended with 111 degrees, I was famished (like a wilted flower) all afternoon. Even with all the water & fresh veggies & hat & sunscreen &&& taking care of myself. The heat really gets to me, sometimes. I had planned to be out earlier, but didn't make it, (needed to walk LUCY or she wouldn't get 1) Today is playing emoticon with DH emoticon in pool emoticon & slept in emoticon & just enjoyed the morning! I made us waffles from a mix, totally 100% grains, Kodiak brand. emoticon Truly amazing, got at Costco. Delicious! I froze a couple of batches, so I can put in toaster, & be on my way. My friend sent us 100% maple syrup she 'grew'. I served with turkey links & eggs. Salad emoticon for dinner, tonight!

Yesterdays hike!

emoticon 8-9-18 I finish the 3 book series, THE GUARDIANS, by Nora Roberts.it was SO good I hated to finish, no kidding. It's like a friend we don't see for years..... I'm starting THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES tonight. I haven't read a novel in YEARS, since Harry Potter books. Usually read self help, but it is fun going into someone else's imagination. I have a very good 1, but not as GREAT as my Mom or Uncle. Not sure where they get it, BUT AMAZING people of my family!

I woke up today & I think an Angel tapped me on my shoulder to tell me, I didn't get my car registration renewal in the mail. (I listen to them, truly) It was due, July13. So I went on line, set up an account, went to get it smoged, as required by the state. 89,009 miles! I love my car! My first new one, 2005, DH bought it for me & I do the maintenance. The lady who did the smog test said I could go to a store & use a DMV kiosk. Since I was late, I tried it. It even printed out the new tags! What an amazing world we live in!

I'm back to work, keep hydrated & I will too!

How I feel about my progress with SP: This is my latest blog:
7-9-18 I hurt my knee dancing in May emoticon , so couldn't do my usual up & down stairs; Zumba; hiking; Pilates; etc. After joining SP (3-16-12, 2,306 days of continual sparking!) I became a VERY active person! It has been REALLY hard on me, to rest & heal. I have been swimming & walking & performing. I saw some photos from my last performance & couldn't believe how out of toned I am. Actually shocking! So today I am restarting, doing what I CAN for this day, moment by moment. I do feel I am basically starting over, then I remember all the over the bed sit-ups, etc. I have been doing, so I'm trying not to be so hard on myself! SP helps me SO much, "REMEMBER WHO I AM" & what I am not. I am blessed for all of you! Thank you for being apart of my journey; "Be the health you want to be, with what you have to work with, & I will, too!" A quote by me. I'm off to play & work & be grateful for my amazing healthy life! 20# back to goal, emoticon It IS hard sharing this with you, but I KNOW I will be stronger for doing it! emoticon

Happy Canada day, weekend!!!!!! emoticon
emoticon 6-29-18 We woke up to 78 degrees! The heat is gone for a few days! High today will be 102. I can live with that! LUCY had her walk in the beautiful breezy park, sprinklers on emoticon , so we ran through a little. I am so blessed! I love my life. emoticon I am focusing on health, as always. 2 months of being off my knee, from dancing injury (up 3#'s) is coming to an end. I still take it easy on stairs, but I NEED & want to walk. Baby steps! Back to 3 miles a day. MORE vegies & play!!!!! Be happy, ok?

(Hummer taken at nature preserve by staff)

(My marionette, Mom & I made from a gourd. GOURDINA. She will be playing with the children July 7, for the nature park, FUN! A great way for me to celebrate my BDay, July6)

I signed up for a colour 5K in August. I joined the SP train for a 5K challenge today and completed the first day's challenge -- walk one minute, jog 3 minutes, x8. I did it! I really really really don't like jogging, but I do enjoy 5K events, especially colour runs because they're so playful.

I made 2.5 miles in the 32 minutes of the challenge. My best 5K (3.1 miles) was 45 minutes, so I may be able to break my personal best. Forty-five minutes is VERY slow, I know, but for me, it's my best.

In keeping with the day, here's a little something my mother told me:

"Find a career that's mostly men. You'll make more money and you'll meet more men."

So I did.

As to my Woo Hoo for the day, I lost another pound!

That marionette is DEFINITELY cool! How wonderful that you share this as a family. I haven't an artistic bone in my body, so I really appreciate that ability in others.

emoticon on the fun gigs and new member of your troupe!

I've lost some more weight, so that plateau is definitely behind me. I'm the leader of this week's new member team and so far exactly ZERO members stopped by to post anything. I have a 'like' on a wall post and that's it. I'll keep at it, though. I've been told that I can hope for about 10 active members of the thousands who start this week. It's a reminder that what we are doing is super hard. We all know the angst and self-loathing that goes with struggling with out of control weight gain. If it were easy, no one would be there.

5-6-18: Update for me: May 10 PUPPETS on SRINGS for a Montessori school, 5 hours away! SO fun, I do perform for them about 1 time a year.

Then I have an 'open to public" show May 12, 2018 for a group of fire fighters.... All will be fun!!!!
I love this part time job! I will also see my Mother for Mother's Day, she said she would give me her SAMMY DAVIS JR. marionette! She (& my DH) made him at least 50 years ago. He is VERY special! She also made a 'copy' of the marionette for the 'real' Sammy, before he passed! WAY cool!

Just keeping at it is definitely worth a

for both of you because, hey, we all know that's HARD.

I'm the leader of the SparkTeam for members who join this week. I'm told that I'll get a couple of thousand members, but maybe only 10 or so will show activity in the team. I'm going to try to make sure we get more than that. I've sent out a team goodie, sent out messages, set up threads to help figure out the site and introduce ourselves ... fingers crossed! Team leadership is really hard, as you know, but I'm going to do my best.
