I have been away from Sparkpeople for a while. During my time away I learned a lot about me and why I am on this journey. The learning process was at times difficult and not at all what I wanted to deal with, but it was necessary. I am not fi... Read more

I got in a run today WITHOUT listening to my music. That is a big deal for me since I love music and enjoy listening to it while I workout. I had my ipod attached and the earpieces in my ears for the entire turn, but never listened to one song... Read more

I am struggling. Family drama is taking its toll on me right now. I considered going out and getting a Coke last night. (For anyone who is reading this and doesn't know my history--I am a recovering Cocaholic.) I didn't go get a Coke or even ... Read more
