just sayin’ … excuses !!! progress !!!

Friday, June 18, 2021

I’ve heard a lot of excuses in my days … given a few doozies of my own.

While watching Dateline with Hubby today … remember he is a retired Marshal … the accused murder’s excuse … she couldn’t have killed her lover’s wife coz she’s … a vegetarian.

Dang … why didn’t I think of that ???

I got a million excuses as to why I gained the weight … lost almost allllll of it … and gain most of it back. But … hey … they’re just excuses.

As I download my blogs from over the years here at Sparks … I have been reading my … excuses.

I joined Sparks360 and the FaceBook group … which is mind blowing at this point. How do you join SparksAmerica ???

I want this weight and these @#$%!!! behaviors … gone. And I need y’alls support, humor, life sharing moments.

Here’s a progress picture on BFF’s grandaughter’s quilt. I wish I had a weight loss progress pic to go along with it.

    And as for excuses: I remind myself, humans are not "rational" animals, we are "rationalizing" animals!!

    I LOVE that cool. I hope she adores it.

    Sometimes, they're excuses, but sometimes they are plain straightforwards fact too. It's not always the ideal condtions to be mentally in the place for a journey back to health, that's why mental health and "you" time is such an important componant of this crazy trip. One thing my Mum always said "I'm not interested in excuses....just solutions", and how sage she was emoticon

    If you joined Spark360, you HAVE joined Spark America. The only difference is whether you've joined a "team", i.e. a city or a company. I have not joined the alumni SP facebook group. I was immediately put off when I saw it had 9,000 members. Too people-y for me. How could you hear a thought, a threat, a conversation?

    I'm thinking 25 - 30 is the max number of people I'd want in any FB group I was part of, just because of volume of messages. Of course it depends on the purpose of the group... I belong to a triathlon club group and it doesn't have high traffic, it's mainly q & a and I can "listen" without feeling obligated to say anything.

    Oooh, that is a gorgeous progress photo!

    Keep the faith, and keep on sayin'!
