Not going to quit!
Awoke this morning earlier than the Corgis... and was feelin' fine! Until I started to walk into the kitchen. Was I sore! Hips, waist and generally all over. Thought jumped into head "It's the walking every morning! You'd better skip it today...... Read more

Whoa! Wake up call on recipe calculations!
I have really enjoyed playing with the recipe calculator. Many of my recipes are working into my plan quite well.
Lesson learned today... just because it is sugar free/light doesn't mean it is low calorie, or that it is actually good for you!... Read more
It's my plan, and I am sticking to it!
Sometimes you just have to keep moving forward, and ignore what is going on around you...
I am finishing up my fourth week on SP. I survived a weird illness which literally left me speechless(for a hairdresser, this isn't pretty! LOL!), worki... Read more
Information is power!
Besides all of the motivation I am receiving on SP, I am gaining a wealth of knowledge! Going down my SparkPoints list every day has made me seek answers to all sorts of questions.
Something as simple as how to choose an apple is empowering f... Read more

Normal is more than a setting on my dryer...
I am approaching the end of the day. When I went to bed last night I was determined to "act as if" this morning, regardless of how I actually felt.
My 4-legged alarm clocks are used to a schedule. They rise at 5am, expect to go outside, then ... Read more
What really IS my responsibility?
To thine own self be true? Hmmm...
One lesson learned this week is that I am responsible for MY actions. Actions had to speak louder than words, since the words were just not coming out of my mouth. LOL!
My hearing was not too great either, ... Read more
An exhausting week is DONE!
This has been one long week! It seems everything was working against me since I joined SP!
I went to doctor this morning. I have had a virus hit my vocal chords, and I am not to speak for 3 days(Hubby LOVES this! LOL!) Nothing but time will he... Read more

"Take unequivocal responsibility, and you open yourself to unlimited opportunity"--Ralph Marston
I am responsible for my own well being. I feel better this morning. Still squeak if I try to talk, but head is clearer. I am able to focus.

I'm not going around THIS mountain!
I am going THROUGH it! My throat is so sore I can't talk(lucky for my clients today! ;)) I feel fine, I've taken my meds, and I refuse to allow this to sabotage my eating plan. I may not get on the Wii today, as I don't think working up a sweat ... Read more
Started the day as a new beginning...
As miserable as I have been due to whatever this grunge is, I resloved to get up this morning and act as if I was feeling great. I took my shower, had my TAG(time alone w/God) and am going in to work. My lunch is packed,.. with all snacks and an... Read more
