Saturday, October 30, 2010

I am house cleaning! I usually am at the Lake on Saturday and Sunday!! So I clean every other Thursday night! Well I am doing a little bit better cleaning job today!!

Attitude- Good or Bad!!

Thursday, October 28, 2010

We should make everyday a good one! I figure if I wake up, get out of bed and get moving it is a GREAT DAY!! I know there are situations that cause us to have a bad attitude! But sometimes our reaction to a situation makes it worse or better! It is not the situation it is how you react to it!! I am not losing, not gaining!! I know if I react to this in the negative I will probably gain! If I react positively I can start the losing process going again! Always try to be positive! Always look for the good!!!! Always say I WILL not I want to or maybe!! Have a Wonderful Positive Thursday! Make it the BEST You can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon

    The only behavior you can control is your own and the only attitude you are in charge of is yours. You are doing great my friend.

Healthy Habits?

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Ms Moxie (the Boston Terrier puppy at work) has inspired today's blog! We are having trouble potty training her. It is easier to just potty in the office and clean it up! We all have to watch her for signs so we can take her out! We are working the the treat theory, right now it seems to be working! But it takes effort on our part!! What does that have to do with Sparking you ask, well we need to develop healthy habits- portion control, healthy foods, fitness, drinking our water! It is easier to just eat what we want, lay around, and not care! But when we do not take care for ourselves then someone else has to clean up after us as our health fails. We need to make the effort to develop healthy habits. The reward system may work for some of us as it does with Moxie! But it should be a healthy reward! Let's all work toward healthy habits! Let's Make this a SPARK kind of day!!!!!!!!!

    Excellent thought!! I like it!

I have a funny story about potty training my Corgi, Wrangler. I used the newspaper method: teach him to go on newspaper then move it closer and closer to the door until it was out of the door and on the grass then just grass.

I used to fill in as a newspaper carrier (can you see where this is going?). I took him to town with me one day and while I darted into a convenience store to drop off their days papers I left him in the car. When I came out he'd done his "business" on a stack of newspapers I had laying in the passenger's seat!!!!

I got a severe case of giggles thinking of him trying to balance on that stack of papers to do his "dooty"!!! But I thought it was REALLY great that he still went on the papers even when we weren't at home so I couldn't be mad even though I had to go back to the newspaper office and explain I needed some replacement papers!

    Awesome example of the importance of our health...LOVE it! As for Moxie...we had trouble with our pup too...only because we were too busy to notice she needed to go. We bought a bell and hung in on a rope on the front door. Now, when she needs to go she rings the bell so somebody notices!! Just an idea...it worked for us!

Good luck!

    It sounds like Ms Moxie has the same trouble I do at work. Some days it's just easier to keep working, than to worry about pottying. LOL!

Great blog! emoticon emoticon
