Junk Food is Still Junk Food, Even if It's a Free Birthday Meal
Monday, February 04, 2019      22 comments

Someone told me there are a number of restaurants that provide a free meal on your birthday (or for a week or so after it). Yes, IHOP does. But I don't eat syrupy pancakes. Denny's does. But I don't particularly care for their food. Jersey ... Read more

Hooray hooray, another tax year put away. Thank goodness for TurboTax making my life so much easier at tax time. Rain has finally stopped and I see the sunshine peaking through the clouds. Love me some sunshine, that's for sure. Have... Read more
Food Tracking Laziness, Grocery Replacement System, Calorie Second-Guessing
Saturday, February 02, 2019      18 comments

There's absolutely no reason that I'm not tracking food intake, other than laziness. I feel I'm doing well with my choices, but the only way to make sure is to see it in numbers on the tracker. Today I've made a commitment to start again and t... Read more

My Return to the Pool Did Not Go Swimmingly
Tuesday, January 29, 2019      22 comments

Yesterday I returned to pool aerobics class after a 3-month break. About a month ago, they did a 3-week drain and scrub, so the water did look so much better. The minute I entered the pool area, the chlorine-smelling air hit my nostrils and lu... Read more

Monday, January 28, 2019      19 comments

With only a few days left in the month, I thought over what was positive for me. I did well with limiting my food monsters - cheese, salt and sugar. My relative's doc appt, which I went to in order to provide support, had good results. ... Read more
HAD MY FIRST KUMQUAT YESTERDAY
Sunday, January 27, 2019      25 comments

During my walk, a neighbor was trimming a bush/tree that looked like it had tiny oranges. Nope, kumquats, which are part of the citrus family. He cut some off for me to bring home. The skin is sweet and the inside is sour. Yikes. I'll... Read more
10 YEAR SPARKVERSARY
Saturday, January 26, 2019      31 comments

I found this site by accident and checked it out thinking it was too complicated for me with so much info. And, besides, I'm not a joiner. (smiling) After that first look-see, it took about a week for me to come back and give it a whirl. I a... Read more
My Lucky Day
Friday, January 25, 2019      24 comments

I lost one of my favorite rings this morning while making some stops. I rarely lose things, and when I do, I blame myself for being careless. Retraced my steps and gave up hope. Sat still, thought of one other place it just might be. There i... Read more

Saturday, January 19, 2019      27 comments

It'll be a big, orange/red ball in the night sky. If you've ever seen one before, you know how pretty it is. One of these days, I have to get that scale out again. Been about six months since I've weighed in. Sun's shining bright... Read more

Neighbor's Passing, Doc Appt., Silly Birthday Again
Thursday, January 17, 2019      22 comments

Thanks to all who wished my neighbor well yesterday. I received a message from her husband that she had passed that morning that I witnessed the ambulance pulling away. There is usually no reason police cars are there, so that's how I guessed.... Read more
I Snack While Sparking
Wednesday, January 16, 2019      18 comments

Not all the time, but often. SP is a trigger. Today I walked in the rain and turned the corner to find one of my neighbors with a fire truck, ambulance, and police cars in front of their house. This couple has been dealing with severe chr... Read more
Bizarro World

Last week, I found a nearby university clinic that specializes in wholistic, naturopathic (sp?) practices for all types of maladies. Researching them further, I perused the application I’d have to fill out for my first appointment, if I ever ch... Read more
