Hi, Saturday was my wake up call - I knew I needed to start making some changes so I did! Plain and simple. I had e-mailed SparkCoach and their reply was inspiring and helpful. I am starting out small. Since my acid reflux has really ... Read more
I need help

Hello! Well, despite my halfhearted efforts I seem to be packing the pounds on again. Yes, I am stepping up to the plate and am fully admitting that my efforts, of late, have been half-hearted ones. I stepped on the scale about 30 min... Read more
Going in the hole in the ground
Monday, October 21, 2019      13 comments

Hi! My father often used the expression “well you are the one going into the hole in the ground” when people complained about their health while continuing to do unhealthy things. Both mom and her sister (who was 10 years older than my moth... Read more
I want to start a journal - anybody?
Wednesday, October 16, 2019      20 comments

Hi! Quick question - how does a perfectionist keep a journal without giving up the first time she blots her ink, spells something wrong, handwriting looks gross, misses a day or two? I know how laughable that sounds, by the way, but ... Read more
Some of the things I've sewn over the past few months - for those who have asked
Tuesday, October 08, 2019      31 comments

In no particular order here are some of the things I have sewn over the past few months. Several of you have expressed interest and I have kind of put it off. I find sewing quite therapeutic and zippered pouches especially so. Go figure! ... Read more
Self-reflection (warning it gets deep)

Last night I had an epiphany, of sorts. It didn’t happen in a church nor in a moment of meditation (something I’d be interested in learning how to do) but rather when I was face and eyes into TWO bags of Cadbury chocolates and a LARGE bag of sal... Read more

Hi, Yesterday turned out to be not so great as I made the mistake of calling my mom mid-afternoon to say hello. She was okay for some of the conversation but then started telling me that the home was keeping her medications on the counter (... Read more
Happy Monday

Happy Monday! In my determination, I'm deciding that the following week is going to be a good one and I will not let stress get the better of me. If you hear laughing that is just my evil twin whispering "just you wait" but I'm going to try... Read more
The week ahead

Hi! Well, my brother was home for a visit and the time went by so fast. He lives in Australia so we don’t get to see each other as often as we both wish. That being said we had a great time together. I’m returning to work tomorrow alth... Read more
A rollercoaster of mental illness and life updates
Wednesday, August 28, 2019      13 comments

Hi, It seems like forever has passed since I last blogged but it's only been a month. But what a month it has been! I've been on the roller coaster I like to call "my mental illness" and it seemed to be going without anybody at the control ... Read more

Hello! While out for a walk with three dogs yesterday I encountered a couple from North Carolina who were visiting Newfoundland for their first time. When I tried to apologize for our dismal weather of late they interrupted me and exclaime... Read more
It’s never been about the weight

Hello! Today’s word is “irony”. Ironically, I not only joined but thoroughly enjoyed the BLC round 40. Also, ironically, I decided not to participate in the current 5% challenge of which I’ve been involved with for many rounds. Why the iron... Read more

Well, it was 13 years ago this morning that I gave my father one final kiss on his forehead just after he died in his sleep. He had battled cancer for a year and was only hospitalized that final night. Never in pain, never “sick” in the traditio... Read more
Why I bought (and throughly enjoyed) a double scoop ice-cream cone
Wednesday, June 26, 2019      25 comments

Hi! Like the majority of us using Spark, I am here to embrace a healthier lifestyle. Okay, that’s just plain fiddlesticks on my part. If I could magically click my heels together and instantly be my ideal weight AND eat junk food I probably... Read more
