Welcome to my Sparkpage!!

Update Mar 10, 2021

I chose to post 4 of my goals for 2021 on my banner. As of last week I have now walked to our mailbox 3 times. My doctor is elated. My task was to start out trying to do it every other day. He told me to give myself a few weeks to be able to walk that far successfully 3 times in one week. I fooled him, I did it the first week! This week I am walking 2 days on 1 day off and 2 days on. I still have to use my walker but the hope is my lungs and back get strong enough that I can walk with just my cane by the end of Summer.

My word anagram for this year is FAB!!!

F - Faith that God will see me through
A - Action; I have to take action and do my part
B - Believe - Believe in myself

Keep Sparkling my friends and be FAB!!

Update: Jan 14, 2021

My health is still not well. Of course it is not going to improve. But if I could get some of this weight off it might make increase my quality of life and extend my length of life as well.

There are 2 words that I have chosen to be my favorite words but not just for this year, for always. They are Believe and Faith.

My plan for success has not changed much. The only thing I am changing is the length of time on exercise.

1. Drink my Slimfast for Breakfast daily
2. Prepare healthy lunch at home each day
3. Practice mindfulness for 15 minutes
4. Tai Chi 15 min, Cardio 30 min 15 Stretch or Tai Chi
5. Track everything I put in my mouth
6. Eat 2 fruits/vegetables
7. Drink at least 8 glasses of water
8. Plan my menu for the next weeks
9. Do something for me for at least 15 minutes
10. Spend quality time with DH

May your Star always Shimmer and Shine!! Keep Sparkling!!

Updated June 11, 2000
A lot has changed since I first made my page. My health has deteriorated. I am going for adouble heart cath tomorrow (June 12). The presumption is that I have CHF. I will update again once I have answers. For now here is my plan for each day.

1. Drink my Slimfast for Breakfast daily
2. Prepare at least 1 healthy meal at home each day
3. Practice mindfulness for 15 minutes
4. Exercise for 20 minutes
5. Track everything I put in my mouth
6. Eat 2 fruits/vegetables
7. Drink at least 8 glasses of water
8. Plan my menu for the next week
9. Do something for me for at least 15 minutes
10. Spend quality time with DH

I will review this list weekly to see if it needs amending

May God bless you and keep you on your journey! Keep Sparkling!

Update: No CHF!! Yay! But the tests continue to find what is going on. I plan to continue living my plan day by day with God at my side.

Keep Sparkling!

My favorite quote... "Call Yourself
Look deep in the mirror
And say "I LOVE YOU"
And immediately
An electric current will
Ripple throughout your soul
And burst through your eyes
Like Shooting Stars
Dancing across the sky
In ecstasy.
To tell your soul you love it -
Is like remembering
After being in a coma
For a hundred years.
Your face will beam the light
of a hundred galaxies."

    It's Friday once again, and time to get our check-up from the neck up so we can be ready to enjoy our weekend! I think you'll find that these jokes will be just what the doctor ordered to tickle your funny bone because they're really quite humerus.

    For those of you who are uncertain of the meanings of medical terms, I thought I'd provide a few I've managed to find and decipher for you.

    "Medical Terms for Dummies"

    Artery - the study of fine paintings

    Bacteria - the back door to the cafeteria

    Catscan - searching for the missing kitty

    Cauterize - managed to made eye contact with the nurse

    Enema - Not a friend

    Fester - quicker than someone else

    Fibula - a small white lie

    Nitrates - Rates of pay for working the night shift; normally more than the day rates

    Outpatient - a person who has fainted

    Urine - the opposite of "You're out!"

    Vitamin - What you do when friends stop by for a visit

    I hope these haven't been so upsetting that they've made you nauseous.
    If so, lay down, take two aspirin, and call your doctor in the morning.

    Enjoy your weekend!
