    I hope that all of you are enjoying your Sunday. Not a whole lot to report today. I plan to catch up on posting on my SparkTeams and explore other content that I may have overlooked. Picking up around the room also. I have to figure out a way to let the people in my building know th... Read more

  • Have The Winter Blues

    1/8/2020 11:10:10 PM, by PORTIA70

    I seriously think that is my issue for the last few days. I am currently in the cycle of not wanting to do anything. I have good intentions the night before when I make plans to take on a task, but by the next day I have lost all energy to even get started. I would rather just lay here and do absol... Read more

  • Needing Exercise Support

    1/7/2020 12:52:19 AM, by PORTIA70

    The one thing I have found is not so much my eating habits as a problem. It is starting to exercise that is the single biggest obstacle. Trying to find out how much is safe enough for me to do, and to add to the fact that I have more energy one day then the next due to health issues. One da... Read more

  • Letting Go

    1/5/2020 5:24:37 PM, by TRAZIJANES

    I got up, dressed and went to Church this morning. I did my devotional before I left. I needed to center my self and ask God to help me. Why? Because I like to try and help God too much. I try and fix things myself and not wait on his timing. I barge ahead like I know how everything should work. I a... Read more

  • Feeding the Mind

    1/3/2020 8:01:23 AM, by TRAZIJANES

    This past week, along with everyone else, I woke up and didn't even know what day it was. The last week of the year is always like that. On top of that, there are the left overs, returning gifts, trying to use all the gift cards and then attempting to clean up the Christmas decor which turns in to d... Read more

    I hope all of you had a safe celebration bringing in the New Year and decade. I had a pretty good time with the neighbors in my building. A few of us watched Rockin New Year's Eve and had a little wine to bring it in. It was not without events happening though. A few months ago, my friend a... Read more

    Here we go again. It's been 13 years since I started this jour ey with Sparkpeople and it's amazing how it has changed and grown.

  • Getting Back Into Sparking

    I posted in last night's blog that I would be back, and here I am. Did you miss me??? :) Today is a whole new day with new challenges, but we will get through them one way or another. Sometimes we have to go around the storm, and others we have to go through the storms, but no matter what... Read more

I know that it is hard during the holidays when the stress of running around shopping, cooking, and spen... Read more

And we are getting ready to head into a whole new decade. I have a feeling we will go through many changes in 2020, but will come ou... Read more

    12/23/2019 6:01:25 PM, by PORTIA70

    Today is my housework day, and this is how Monday makes me feel I usually reserve weekends for my relaxation days, but with a cat it becomes such a chore. She wants to be under my feet wanting to know what I am doing. A restaurant a block and a half from when I live was giving o... Read more

    12/22/2019 2:14:32 PM, by PORTIA70

    I am starting my day by checking in with SparkPeople first, before I do anything else. It is not only a good way to know how far you have come, but also a way to speak to others who are also on this journey. They can be much needed support to get you through the day. Sunday for me is usually... Read more
