3 Shocking Things in the Past Week (if you need happy happy, this blog is not it)
Wednesday, January 29, 2014      29 comments

I wrote about the first one last week, but going to repeat it. Shocked me to find out that a male friend whom I hadn’t seen in a few weeks and is the very picture of health, worked his last day on Friday due to diagnosis of throat cancer. ... Read more
Another Marlboro Man Gallops Off into the Sunset. RIP.
Monday, January 27, 2014      21 comments

I remember when I'd look at these ads or watch the commercials and think these Marlboro cowboys were a hunka hunka burnin' love. Now, many of them have died of respiratory issues. Eric Lawson smoked (according to news report) since he wa... Read more
DOES ANYONE HAVE BOTH THE FITBIT AND SPARK ACTIVITY TRACKER?
Sunday, January 26, 2014      20 comments

I am still thinking about getting the SP tracker, but not sure that just flashing lights would be enough to motivate me without seeing numbers until I connect on computer. If anyone has both, I'd enjoy hearing what you think about yours.... Read more
5 Years Ago Today
Saturday, January 25, 2014      26 comments

I was waiting somewhere and picked up a random magazine. Thumbing through it, I saw the link to Sparkpeople and came here to check it out. Although I registered on this day five years ago, I was overwhelmed by the plethora of information and w... Read more
My Fave Grocery Store has Morphed into a Monster
Friday, January 24, 2014      18 comments

All last year, my favorite little grocery store (Fresh and Easy) kept customers updated on whether they were going to close if not bought by an investor. I blogged last year about this; how the groceries were fresh, no preservatives, and totall... Read more
The Downside of Lots of Exercise for Me
Thursday, January 23, 2014      24 comments

I become ravenous. Simply hungry beyond all reason. Might exercise less to be less hungry. Thanks to all for your kind responses to my bad news yesterday. Each friend/relative who hits me with news like that takes on the face of all I'... Read more
Shocking news. Just found out. A friend with throat cancer.
Wednesday, January 22, 2014      30 comments

Very sad right now. A special friend just told me he's starting chemo and radiation next week for throat cancer. This guy has always been the picture of health.... Read more
I'll See It When I Believe It
Wednesday, January 22, 2014      14 comments

I borrowed this thought from Wayne Dyer. I can see my goal, I can feel it. So, yes, I believe it'll happen this year. Almost did last year, but I sabotaged myself when I was 3 lbs away from goal! How 'bout that? That was then, this is now. ... Read more

Feeling great without caffeine and sugar and less dairy. Down another 2 lbs. Enjoying green smoothies. Have a healthy, happy day, dear spark friends.... Read more
I'm A Recovering Cheeseaholic
Monday, January 20, 2014      23 comments

No kidding. I've finally reduced my dairy intake, especially cheese, to very minimal amounts. Have to admit that I can eat enormous portions of cheese and have finally come to my senses. My body is thanking me big time. Wishing all a hap... Read more
Affirmations, Grief, Pneumonia, Kiwi - A Potpourri of Topics
Sunday, January 19, 2014      26 comments

I was listening to a online radio show and the host was talking about breathing problems like asthma and pneumonia being linked, as some cultures believe, to grief. Makes sense; I have long understood mind/body connections and as he went into t... Read more
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
