"Once in a blue moon we find a gem!" SO glad I happened upon Sparkpeople!

2019~
This is my third year with Sparkpeople, and it continues to be a stabilizing force in my life.

With age and less activity, my weight has gone up and I know I must get it down to help my joints feel better and to lower my blood pressure and cholesterol. I do fine with tracking and moderation during the daytime, but compulsive eating habits often haunt my evenings.Still working on it!

Since I joined Sparkpeople, I have improved my attitude about diet and exercise, due especially to the wisdom and motivation of the wonderful Spark teams I was lucky to find AND to the Sparky individuals who keep me growing strong.

~Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day. (Author unknown.)

For health and happiness, I won't settle; I'm a Rebel!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Hugging is good medicine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It transfers energy and gives the person hugged an emotional lift.
    You need four hugs a day for survival,
    eight for maintenance, and twelve for growth.
    Scientists say that hugging is a form of communication.
    because it can say things you don't have the words for.
    And the nicest thing about a hug is
    that you usually can't give one without getting one.

    emoticon Happy Saturday! Push harder than yesterday if you want a different tomorrow. Remember, if it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you. You got this! Be your own inspiration and cheerleader.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Witches Stew emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Bubble, blubber, squirm and gloop,
    Boiling broth of bat's tail soup.
    Wobble, slobber, liquid goo,
    Add the sole of one old shoe.
    Spooky shadows dance around,
    Of frogs and rats and snarling hounds.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Steam swirls rising to the roof,
    Add one small ear and one old tooth.
    Gnarly, scratchy, tickle and itch,
    Stir round and round to make it rich.
    Mushy, sticky, sizzle and stew,
    They're making mischief just for you
