I MATTER: not gonna be a pushover anymore
What I want matters. Why do I put up with a charter home-school that no longer fits my needs, drops "change" bombs on me regularly, and doesn't let me do it my way? Why do I stay there? Because I'm ignoring MY needs as well as that of my son in ... Read more
What's Going On
There are some weird things going on over here in my house. The first of which is that last month began "birthday season" in our family. ... Read more
I am pretty excited because I've just proven to myself that I CAN take care of myself during stressful times. Which also means I can do it during the upcoming food-related festivities that begin with Halloween.
I've broken through a weight ... Read more
I Matter...Now to find the time
I am struggling with time, as most of my Sparkfriends know. This is an ongoing struggle for me. More than the food, more than the movement, just finding time to devote to me, my health, my pursuit of getting healthier than I am now.
It's Fa... Read more
A couple of people (on my spark page) asked about my piece of paper on my fridge where I was keeping track of my nighttime snacking. I wasn't tracking all my food b/c my meals are spot on, that part I've managed to figure out over the years, alt... Read more
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?
Today, and every day, let's give ours... Read more
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
