I feel so healthy, will it show when I weigh in?
Sunday, January 08, 2012     

I have been doing "Clean" eating for the past week and staying pretty true to it. My exercise has been poor though. I need to step up the pace. Will the scale show any results? Or should I even look? What is my true goal? Lowering my numbers? Lo... Read more
Clean Eating, beginning...

Started to try and "clean" up our food act around here. I need to lose weight, my daughter in law is pregnant and my hubby is showing signs of wear. We had tofu parmesan for dinner night before last. I cooked it a bit too long but we still... Read more
First trip to Whole Foods today...
Monday, January 02, 2012     

And it might be my last. Very expensive. I went with a set shopping list rather than going by their weekly ad sales, which might make a difference. But, I got to see my son at his job for the first time and he helped me pick out some wonderful l... Read more

Well, my demons have reappeared and I have gained 10 lbs. I have been avoiding Spark and realized that it was guilt and I need to air it in the open. Put some light on me and move forward. And that I was missing all of you. I will be by later t... Read more
Nebraska here I come...
Sunday, April 11, 2010     

When I first did this blog it was just to see how many SP friends were in NE and might be close. So far, one. :) But most comments are how great it will be for me to see my family. YES! I grew up with my Nebraska cousins (4 boys) and they a... Read more

Where have I been?
Sunday, March 28, 2010     

I can't believe I haven't been able to Spark much since Thursday night. We had to run our german shepherd down to a friends house that evening. They were driving up to Oregon to visit my DS#1 and he wanted to see his dog. So much for my plans th... Read more

Listening to the squirrels...
Tuesday, March 16, 2010     

Sitting here feeling kind of grumpy and was asked to write a positive blog. I looked for some jokes and then decided I needed to lift myself up a bit. So sat in my chair thinking. And then I heard this noise. An animal noise. It wasn't chirping ... Read more
