I just wanted to pop by quickly to say hi to all my Sparkfriends. I haven't left spark. I'm just currently drowning in work and illness. I had to make hard decisions, and screen time ended up losing out to exercising, but sickness is battling me... Read more
And now, to chat about what I mentioned quickly on my I Matter team. I have realized that for some reason my snacking has gotten out of control. I've been doing great with exercise (until coming down with something last night), but when I weighe... Read more

trophies for fitbit/jawbone/misfit steps?
Does anyone know if you get the incentive trophies, like with the Spark Activity Tracker, when you use a synced other tracker? I know you CAN sync other trackers to Sparkpeople, but I was wondering if they do the goals the same way.

When I am tired, exhausted, done-in, I want to quit. Everything.
When I don't, it's a victory. And I need to start celebrating those victories. You usually don't want to quit after a victory, right?

Stubborn Holiday Spirit
I'm due to go get my decorations out of storage today. The sitter is coming at 12:30. My neck and back are still not really great, and it's pouring rain. So I smile, and think that yes, every year there are some roadblocks to doing what I want. ... Read more
GTD = Getting Things Done
For me, GTD links to feeling pretty good, GTD links to moving more, GTD links to eating better, GTD [usually] links to sleeping better, which all lead to living fitter.
That said, today will also be about doi... Read more

No more food emo
Here's a thought:
Don't attach emotion to what you already ate.
Do we feel bad about the type of gas we put in our car? Do we worry about it later? Food = fuel, and regardless of the quality of the fuel, we choose what goes in our bod... Read more
Not Much To Say
I've been meaning to write a blog for over a month now, but truth is, I don't have a lot to say. Or maybe I do, but only in response to what others are saying. So I've been writing responses on other people's blogs instead of writing my own. And... Read more
I ate very very badly yesterday. I had very little sleep the prior night, a very stressful day from wake-up until about 1:30pm. Then I just zombied out even though I knew I had a ton of work to do, and so I also had guilt. All of that piled on a... Read more
4 weeks to improve in-flight experience
Yeah, that's not much time, right? But it's not a reason to give up!
I went back to see what I weighed on my last flight, and I did record a weight 2 days after my last flight. I am currently a little more than 2 lb lighter than my last fligh... Read more

Turbo Healthy Lifestyle
After a chair breaking while sitting in it (not even moving) on my last vacation (is there a hybrid word for vacation and misery?), I'm really thinking about things again. Not that I think it broke b/c I'm so big or anything, because I'm big, bu... Read more
