Friday, October 16, 2009      3 comments

Hi Sparksters, Just wanted to mention that I haven't forgotten the 1000 Action Steps challenge. I'm out of town so my typical " I need to get this job done" list I put together doesn't really apply. I am working on a list of things I need to... Read more

Several years ago, one of my New Years Resolutions was to try and start "Going Green". Our City didn't have curbside recycling pick-up at the time so I didn't start with that. I started by using cotton napkins rather than paper napkns with our... Read more

In November 2007, I made a decision. I was SICK AND TIRED of being overweight and unfit. I was 52 years old, out of shape, depressed, and my health was deteriorating. I couldn't do the things I wanted to do and I was embarrassed, I had so many... Read more

I picked up this idea from the "I pre-ordered the Spark" team but wanted to pass it along. Don't you think that having Oprah feature Spark People on an upcoming show is a good idea? I think it would be AWESOME particularly with the book coming... Read more

Spent most of the day today working around the house... laundry, vacuuming, ironing, general cleaning, that sort of stuff. I cleaned out the hall coat closet (thanks Marlies.... you got me motivated!) and it was a real dust bomb. It feels goo... Read more

Had a wonderful lunch out today in the "Big City" (Portland, Or) with my friend Sue. It was her birthday last week so it was my treat and she got to choose the restaurant. We went to the Olive Garden in Beaverton which is always good. I LOVE ... Read more

Earlier this week, I got a new exercise DVD called "So you think you can Dance ~ Get Fit". Well guess what, I can't dance! I guess that shouldn't really be a surprise ~ I already knew that. The DVD is interesting but probably not for me. I m... Read more

This morning I made a "crustless" pumpkin pie from the pumpkin I cooked the other day. It turned out a bit sweet for my taste so next time I will cut back on the Splenda. Overall, a nice treat for around 100 calories. Kept busy today an... Read more

Tonight is the Planning Commission meeting where they will be considering our petition to divide our property. I'm not looking forward to it as we have a neighbor who is attending and has "issues" with us. This neighbor went balistic when we p... Read more

Started off slow this morning. Not sure why, but I didn't really wake up with the alarm. My DH got up at 6:00am and I was sort of dozing until I heard him on the treadmill at 7:00. Ack! I overslept. I got up, quickly brushed my teeth and pu... Read more

Today I put together my list of action steps and I think I was a bit more aggressive than I should have been. I pretty much went non-stop all day and finally decided that I needed to cut the list and defer a couple of things until tomorrow. Al... Read more
