215 days straight of Sparking! I read my ARC's this a.m. and reviewed my goal board. One of the flags on my goal board is "Finish what you started". I like reading that one because when the road to health, wellness and weight loss gets rough... Read more

Update, I didn't drive to Bradley yesterday, my stylist's baby was sick so cancelled, however that was a good thing. The weather there was horrible. Ended up taking some nyquil and sleeping A LOT. This a.m. I decided, after a couple wee... Read more

I drive a rather long distance south of Chicago (Bradley to be exact) to get my hair cut. Sometimes I get it done by a random person up here (Chicago area) however the girl I go to is so talented and does such amazing cuts and color, that I thi... Read more

Wow, this cold has hit with a vengeance. I cough, cough, cough. Thankfully the sputum looks ok, so it isn't pneumonia. I have an eye appointment today and NEED new specs because these are old (blurry vision), my two newer pairs are both unusa... Read more
Healthcare professional
Sunday, February 21, 2016      4 comments

As a healthcare professional I don't like it when I hear people talk about getting sick from the weather. It is NOT the weather that makes us sick. Cold, wet, wind, snow, etc might make us feel down (seasonal affect disorder) but to actually c... Read more

I recently heard a commercial for Dark Matters Coffee, a Chicago based coffee business, I love this quote from the commercial. "The secret to success is to fail and learn continually". That pretty much tells the story of all of us who want to ... Read more

A recent comment on my Sparkpage from 1Crazydog "You are the greatest love of your life, treat yourself accordingly". Do we totally believe that? If we do, why do we run ourselves ragged for everyone else, leaving little for us? Why do we mak... Read more
Uninspired

Did you ever just feel uninspired about every little thing? On Friday I hit 200 days/20 lbs on to Sparkpeople (makes today 202) but I was too uninspired to ponder thoughts to write down. Maybe it was post night shift tiredness. I'm uninspired... Read more

I just read Cat_in_CJ's blog, Eyes on the Prize. She had this lovely picture with a CS Lewis quote, "you are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream". First, I love CS Lewis, and I love to dream. I get excited at just being ... Read more
