Have sweet dreams of peaceful places, joyful thoughts as your mind frolics through the pages of your memories. Think positive thoughts about special places and even more special people. Keep your eyes on the prize and remember that EVERYONE is doing the best they can, with who they are, what they know, and the tools and skills they have. Be gentle and kind with your words as you never know what tragedies, sadness, or issues those people you encounter may be facing - the pain, the triumphs, the joy, the sadness all that are hidden in their hearts.
I copied this from a blog i read today, It really hit home for me, It made me think about how hard I am on myself and others I love sometimes w/o thinking that we are more than we do. It has been a mystery why this wk I have been so tired and have not had my tennis matches be very important to me.
I figured it out, this month so far, court dates, hard family issues, having to cancel trips that we were really looking forward to going on, no wonder tennis isn't my first priority this wk, today i feel asleep for a good long nap, it was just the right thing to do, the housework can wait.
Thank god I have my dailys! vits, water, ex, sparks, jems and only F&Vs after 8pm and I have been doing them for so long they still got done, everyday. some I had to catch up on, that's ok today, tomm I will do my best, and it will prob be better than today. today I am w/i cals, sparking, and feeling lots of gratitude. Have a Terrific Thurs all! i plan to~

Sending you all the blessings and sweet dreams, angel kisses, sunshine to warm you, raindrops to cleanse you and wash away the pain, and hugs and kindness from those you care about, gentleness and acceptance from those you don't even know YET, and a small reminder that what YOU do and say moves out from you in waves and touches many others besides the ones you actually SEE. Remember to make your words sweet in case you have to eat them later. Good night and God Bless you all.
I copied this from a blog i just read, it really touched me. I have a sad spot inside me right now, (mom stuff) I am going on anyways hoping it heals quickly. I know it will, it always does when it get's touched. Today my goal is to just keep doing what I need to do, know that I can only help my feelings to change (perspective) , and I can control my actions. Life is good, I can do and be my best and let things heal in their own time!

Ok, damn I just blew it again! grrrr. You know what? it's been the first midnight binge in months. So I had one rough hr, I have had so many wonderful days, that this one tough hr is just a minute in time. I can't remember the last time I blew my dailys. And I even did do 4 out of 5! If you were crying the blues and telling me you had a blow it hr I would say "girl, put on your big girl panties and keep going!" You are doing great! You have been on track, loving life, doing great in so many situations you deserve a trophy! You know how to do it, you know how to not do it again! Get rid of the binge food, track those cals,and move on!
Guess what? today i am doubling my sparktime, reading and responding to blogs, (while drinking a huge glass of water) and making plans for success! My big girl panties are on and i am ready to watch them shrink! One successful day at a time!
Oh life is good, here it is my midnight binge! 11pm-midnight : w/2 big hunk bars,2 flour tortillas, a cup of ice crm, and 2 pudding cups w/whip crm. OMG you must think! (get real I am sure you have done some major damage before too!) than started my morning w/M&M's! what's important is that this is really past behavior, and I don't do it anymore or need to again. I am a sparkler, I know secrets keep you sick and I am not keeping them again!
So today for bkfst my tracker says M&M's for bkfst, That's ok, I will keep w/i my cal range, i will do my exercise today, I will do better everyday, I was on a roll, I am keeping it going. I plan to hit my 5% by July 6th!

I am cheating on this blog: I am rewriting a blog I just read using tennis instead of baseball because I want it forever to be in my blogs. I loved it!
Have you ever played tennisl? When you were learning to play did you hit the ball every time? Did you always hit the ball straight to the person you were hitting it to? Did you always hit the ball in when you were serving ? I didn't think so. It takes time and lots of practice to get good and even then you will not , hit the ball good every time. So what makes you think you can start a new eating and exercise program and get it perfect all the time? You can't. Think of it as learning a new game. You practice, practice and more practice but even then you will make mistakes. Sometimes you miss the ball. But, keep on playing. You WILL get better.
Preety soon you will be able do it (eat right, and hit the ball better) in every situation, and in different more inventive ways, you will be able to plan your next shot, you will be able to move w/grace and style on the courts and in any eating situation, you will be able to make better choices & hit balls you are amazed you could never do & hit before, the same will happen when you practice your new spark way of life, it will get easier and you will get better at it.
Today I am a champion league playing tennis player, (really our team won our division) 6 yrs ago I was a overwt mom who couldn't find a way to exercise that I could stand, I am on the way to becoming a champ w/my body now too! One practice day at a time!

This was the most amazing accomplishment I have achieved while sparking. This is a pic of our championship day. We are the division champs for ladies tennis in No Cty San Diego. It is amazing, Just 6 yrs ago I was a chubby couch potato.
Yesterday i did something amazing that I had to share- My friend Annie rides her bike 14.4 miles everyday, she has done this over a month, well, yesterday I joined her. She goes really fast, we were passing everyone, we rode inland to the coast , which meant we rode against headwind. OMG it was all I could do to keep up, sometimes I didn't but I just kept going and making my bike move it's fastest. When I was done, I could hardly stand, my legs were like noodles, and I seriously thought I was gonna colapse, but I didn't, I did it! I did it well, I did it w/o giving up. today I am really proud that I was able to do something so amazing.
I have been on track and loving life this last couple wks, staying w/i cals, doing my dailys! sparking/vits/exercise/jems/and only F&V's after 8. I know if I was facefirst in food I would not only have never done the bikeride, i would of never had the courage to try it. I would of never been able to keep up, I would of given up. Today I am not giving up! I am not giving in! Thanks to sparks!
I am the one w/the pink visor on! waving hello!
