My Huge Victory over Sugar Yesterday
Friday, January 17, 2014      32 comments

I craved candy so badly yesterday that I drove over to the store and let myself pick something out. Of course, I told myself that if I did this, I'd do the moderation thing. (Note - has never worked before.) In my hot little hands was a sm... Read more
RANT Over Attorney's Breach of Fiduciary Duties
Wednesday, January 15, 2014      25 comments

My dear cousin (in black top in my SP photo) passed away almost 4 years ago and left a very simple will and small estate of which I am one of four beneficiaries. The money is not in the least the moral of this rant, so let's get that out of the... Read more
Stepping Away from SP
Friday, January 10, 2014      31 comments

Will try to keep in touch with a few of my friends here. It's been 5 years and I'm going to step away gradually. Wishing all the best.... Read more
Sensa Ads on SP
Friday, January 10, 2014      22 comments

I was surprised to see Sensa ads this morning on SP as they were just in the news for having been fined 26.5M dollars for false claims. This is an example of the type of advertising that is disappointing on this site. I'll leave it at that.... Read more
Results of Yesterday's Jonesing for Coffee
Tuesday, January 07, 2014      23 comments

Happy to say that I DID NOT succumb to unpacking my coffeemaker. I smiled at the responses of support I received, especially Morticia who said she might come here and kick my butt if I ruined my streak. At that point, I realized I needed to kic... Read more
Jonesing Big-Time for Coffee
Monday, January 06, 2014      17 comments

After 10 days of feeling great from no caffeine, today I'm flying in the danger zone. Soooo tempted to make a pot. Some days are just harder than others. Stay warm and safe in all those cold temp areas.... Read more
Eating Humble Pie (0 Calories) - Walked too Soon
Sunday, January 05, 2014      29 comments

Set myself back a bit with yesterday's walk. Coughing and other things. It's only one week since I was in the ER, and I had stopped coughing before the walk. Hope this isn't a huge setback. I think I'll wait to walk again; meanwhile, light i... Read more
My First Walk After Pneumonia
Saturday, January 04, 2014      23 comments

Just got back and did the slowest walk of my life. But thrilled as it's the first long walk after pneumonia. Been exercising lightly for days now, so this was a culmination of that warm up. I know that I have to be careful and take it slowly.... Read more
When/How to Resume Exercise After Illness
Friday, January 03, 2014      25 comments

It's always risky business when deciding when to start moving again - and how much to do. Yes, listen to my body after a week of pneumonia sounds simple. But actually, it's not. Knowing when and how to get going is a bit experimental as my bo... Read more
Old Habits Die Hard (But they DO die!)
Thursday, January 02, 2014      25 comments

I just wrote about packing away my coffeemaker the other day. Well, I stopped into the grocery store yesterday to pick up a few things and noticed that the holiday bags of coffee were marked down to $3.00. They are pumpkin flavored coffee and ... Read more
I Sent Sugar Packing Along with 2013
Wednesday, January 01, 2014      27 comments

I did several months in 2013 w/o sugar. Not sugar-free completely, but no sugary drinks, candy, etc. Then I found that when I gave myself "permission" to have some, I enjoyed it less and less. Now I'm at a point where I can take it or l... Read more
Today I Packed the Coffeemaker Away for the Final Time
Tuesday, December 31, 2013      29 comments

Those who've known me over the 5 years I've been here on SP know that this is deja vu. Yes, I've quit my one daily mug of coffee before. My only caffeine intake, but it wasn't good for me in several ways. This time, with these two infec... Read more
"Plus-Size" Barbie?!
Monday, December 30, 2013      27 comments

Will they do the same with the Ken doll? Will they call it "realistic" Ken rather than "plus-size" Ken? Do I really care? Not really. Just observing. (There's a pic on the internet.) Feeling stronger today. Wishing all of you in ... Read more
HOW MY SPARK BUDDIES MIGHT HAVE HELPED SAVE MY LIFE (NO KIDDING)
Sunday, December 29, 2013      28 comments

Several gentle nudges from concerned SPfriends helped me decide to go to the ER. Not flippant about my health, but I DO have a tendency to think I can handle everything (okay many things) since I know my body so well. I'm not into medical solu... Read more
Spent Afternoon in ER
Saturday, December 28, 2013      24 comments

Started coughing up blood and was told to go to ER. Fortunately, not bad enough to alarm them, but they put me on heavy duty meds. I'm normally very healthy, but this year I've got socked in the nose with this stuff. Wishing all my fr... Read more
