I've been using Dietbet to help motivate me to lose weight. emoticon I first discovered this site through CNN. There is just something about getting money for something I am already doing. And all the progress I make on DietBet just goes right back to SparkPeople. I wish I would have found this site sooner. Each week I watch as I lose more weight and I get closer to winning that pot of money. What it is is this: You've got 4 weeks to lose 4% of your starting weight. To begin, everyone puts money into the pot. After four weeks, whoever hits their 4% goal is a winner and splits the pot.

I don't want to lose my money so I work harder at trying to win it. If this sounds like something you would be interested in join me in a friendly game called Bring It in Spring that starts the day after Easter. We can encourage one another on.

AS PART OF THE Official Stress Busting Challenge I am blogging each week about things that are causing me stress. So begins Day 1. Today it is the house. It is so messy and disorganized that it IS causing me stress. I feel so overwhelmed I don't want to even begin to tackle it. :-(

    I SO identify with this.... Fly has helped some with aiming my energy in the most productive way, but I still struggle...

    Thanks for the encouragement . It has turned into almost a fear of phobia of some sort. I think to myself okay just get up and do it. But that stresses me out. Not sure why. I have even done the fifteen minutes in each room but that didn't seem to help. Because I didn't stick with it. Maybe I am not making it enough of a priority. But why the fear? grr

  I know just how you feel. I took the advice of another blogger and did a 15 min tidy up in each room everyday. I am getting there. Goodluck.

Lunch today

Monday, June 07, 2010

Wow it's been a while since I posted a blog entry. It's also been awhile since I ate a salad. So today I decide to make one for lunch. It was pretty good especially since I added my fresh grown chives from my garden. It had some chicken, hard-boiled egg, carrots, pecorino romano, red onion, iceburg, my chives, and a little ranch.

I guess that's how things are going right now. Nothing special today. Just trying to make it through the day. Have a bad case of tendinitis or pinched nerve or something. Well that's all for now, stay tuned for more.... emoticon

Well its November, a beginning to a new month. A time to sit back and assess the past month and see what changes to need to be made. A time to forgive yourself for past mistakes and move on. Time to get out into the crisp fall air and enjoy all of nature. A time to think about all your thankful for. I am going to try to get out onto the trails more this month. What are you going to change this month?

    Loved reading your blog, very inspiring!

We are well into our summer, a perfect time to make changes in and around the house. Busy painting exterior walls and revamping the garden to be ready way before our holidays. This year I'm planning to take time to spend with loved ones not running around chasing my tail.

    I love a new month any time of year and I especially love Fall and how symbolic and poetic it is for me with all the changing leaves and colors.

My change this month is to focus on consistency. I am very good at many of the things i need to do to reach my goals but only inconsistently so I feel like if I work on consistency I will be much further ahead.
