I was right - exercise did the trick and I'm feeling much better today. I got to the gym early so I could get in a longer workout on the treadmill. It takes my leg muscles so long to warm up that I'm only just hitting my stride if I stop at 30... Read more

We lived on a farm and raised horses for a number of years - til our kids graduated from high school and we lost our "slave" labor. When we sold the farm we moved to "the city", actually a relatively small town just outside of D.C. Besides hor... Read more

I did it. I got into my exercise togs and turned on the t.v. to on demand and called up Ms. Jillian Michael and her Thirty Day Shred. Boy, did she do a number on me. I didn't last more than 3-4 minutes before my heart rate was so high I knew ... Read more

Got a bit of bad news yesterday and I'm surprised with how I'm handling it. What has always happened in the past is I have eaten myself into oblivion. Somehow thinking (or not thinking) that things would be better on the other side of the bags... Read more

I've missed a couple of days of Sparking. I was discouraged and wanted a break from the constant reminder of how far I have yet to go to achieve a healthy life style. Guess what - Life went on, I ate right, I exercised, all because I feel ... Read more

We went out for a while last night and when we got back our air conditioning had conked out. Bedroom was 85 degrees! Even though we quickly opened the windows and set up fans, the house did not cool down over night before the solar energy of ... Read more
