I like them.
...not more than the first ones, but as much or differently ;0
what's the message there? well, the photo+language collaboration says more than the individual text lines, but they're good just the same:
*This month's goal: PACE YOURSELF
*The Secret to Smarter Decisions
*Check Your Balance
*Go with the Flow
*Give your Hunger A Time Out
*An AMAZING workout You Can Do ANYWHERE
*Eat this not that
*Find Your Center
*RELEARN WHAT YOUR BODY CAN DO
*Push past the plateau
*Shift Your Attention
(This is my) ACTION PLAN
Shake up the workout plans with new moves
And keep up the connections
SPARK'n On !
(Side Note: I'm afraid to get on the scale since New Years. But FEAR is a bad companion. So, this Wednesday, my weigh day, I'll get on and it will be what it will be.)
The GOAL is further and more and better than any number, that begins with a 1 or a 2. And... thanks to some of my good friends here on spark I'm reminded that there is some nutrition science to be had as well. May try that "cinch" stuff that mamaT found... We'll see.
I am SO GRATEFUL for the SPARK Community.

I've had a tough few days. Not in the worldly way, but with myself and with my food plan. I don't know what it is... but things leap to mind as volunteer possibilities. Like, hmmm:
1) 199.8 on new years day ... a celebration but not feeling safe
2) made it through holidays on point... but then the afterwaves of cravings more difficult
3) I have been "hungry" ier a lot more often. the tummy kind and the other kind.
4) it's just how it is... Sometimes it is "easy", there's a rhythm and a flow to staying on track and within my goal guidelines.. and that's how it's been for weeks and weeks.
So... hey... I'm crestfallen at the loss of that ease (Big whoop, eh). Get over it, I tell myself gently today. Sometimes it's not easy. And that's when we (meaning me) dig to our tools. Yeah, remember P, TOOLS.
So-- Now that I've had my afternoon snack two hours early.... I've got my collage envelope out.... Perhaps its high time for some new motivators, a re-grouping, a checking in, a rallying of friends and foibles.
My body hurts from my 60 minute workouts on the elliptical. Maybe new shoes will help. Or insoles. Or maybe a more varied workout. Yeah... I need to vary what I'm doing... but so far the classes at my club don't work for me.
Any body got a great toning firming video they love. Mat work and small weights or bands?
I'd love to hear about it.
Thanks for stopping by and reading this.
This is a reaching out I guess. But mostly a bookmark for my self.
I hear you P. Now, Let's do this!!!!

Hooray!!! With your feedback and encouragement I am 'taking' that New Years Day weight in at 199.8 as attainment in onederland. And I celebrated!!! Especially sweet with you.. and with Joe.... and, indeed, with myself.
I soaked it in, even (as the previous blog suggests) if/that I won't feel solidly arrived until a few more clicks down the 9's. BUT.... I did soak it in... put on my new pants (down two sizes) and am ready to move on!!
Yes, T.... "Onward and Downward!!!"
In 2010, I lost about 35 lbs, 23 with Spark! I made it to ONEderland just in time for New Years! I dropped from too-tight jeans size 20/22... to new jeans size 18P. I went from dragging my self to the gym maybe 3x a week for 30minutes.... to looking forward to the gym 60minutes 4-6x week. And.... FEELING GOOD. And looking to set a new goal with my MOVING STONES visualization (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE).
My new goal (the number that means something, demarcates something I understand in sense memory) is 175#. That means I am going to move the 25 stones in the littlest middle container.
(In the goblet are stones (1 each representing lbs lost); In the little cup are lbs to lose in the current Goal; and in the jar are remaining stones in bigger picture).
I care more about the getting there than the when. So... here we go!!! 2011!!!
Me myself and I.... and ALL OF YOU!! We can do this!!! We are doing this!!!
Congratulations to me and to all of you on all we've accomplished so far.
And here's to a sparktastic new year and all that it brings.

Yep! It's New Year's Day 2011... and I asked for Onederland, I intended it, I sparked it!
(albeit, I think, very very unofficial)
Red toes to match my lovely red scale.
I say unofficial because... as happened once a week or so ago... the scale said 198.7 in one spot on the wood floor, 199something in another and 200 on another. OUIJI BOARD..Ouiji board...uh-huh. But, you know what? -- I'm all IN for that -- all of it -- I 'get it'!
It's a number. And it does mean something -- it represents something anyway -- whether it's a lot or a little....
In any case, I'm delighted, and I post this photo today (for me and for you)-- NEW YEAR'S DAY -- my sparked and stated Goal for all to see! Unofficial photo not finish.
Keep on Sparking!
Happy New Year!
