Finished ch. 4 and 5 of The Spark
Friday, December 30, 2011      3 comments

FIre... this is what I am gaining by becoming involved with Sparking. I had allowed my inner passions to cool down to almost nothing. I had lost my vision for what I wanted to accomplish in my lifetime. "Optimists realize they are responsible fo... Read more
FIT-NESS is also the "ability to do" something...
Thursday, December 29, 2011      1 comments

Sometimes the word FITNESS can mean "the ability to do"... whatever you need to do. When I saw this entry on Daily Motivator, I realized I only have "excuses" when I choose them... I can be my own stumbling block! I'm printing this and posting... Read more
Musings on CH.3 of The Spark...
Wednesday, December 28, 2011      3 comments

FITNESS!!! EEK! Ugly word! LOL! Until I read ch.3 last night, I had never really thought about what the word "fitness" really meant, or what it actually implied. To me, it has meant exercising my body to extremes and being obsessive about work... Read more
Looking back on goals over the years and updating...

I went to bed last night with the Spark, my journal and a warm Corgi. Propped the pillow up and began to look back through the journal. I have always had a section for goals. A page per goal. I'm went back and revisited each one to see what I'll... Read more

The Last Week of 2011... refocusing.
Monday, December 26, 2011      4 comments

I've decided to take this whole week to re-evaluate where I have been, and where I would like to go in the new year. My copy of The Spark came last week. I just finished reading chapter 2 last night. A good read! Focus is an appropriate topic ... Read more
Sparking is like riding a bike... once you get the hang of it, you'll always have the ability to do
Sunday, December 18, 2011      6 comments

When you are a kid, you learn to ride a bicycle(hopefully!) and find a whole new world opens up to you. You find freedom on two wheels... to get you where you want to go, as fast as you can peddle and have a direction to go in. How pretty the bi... Read more
Getting priorities set...any suggestions?

Somehow I have to get a routine set in place that allows me to get everything in I want to do each day... I have lived by a schedule/routine my whole life. That is why I have a successful business, and a pretty good day each day... a really go... Read more

A new month! A new opportunity to learn and grow! Yes, I was hoping my weight would be 204.0 this morning. 206.8 is nothing to be ashamed of... after beginning at 214.0. I think this may be closer to an accurate body weight. I was up and down ... Read more
Sparking two full months now... plans for December.
Wednesday, November 30, 2011      1 comments

These past two months have passed quickly. The whole year has passed quickly! The sense of time passing so fast means I am not taking the time to enjoy my journey as I should be. I have been "striving" more than just "Being". This is something... Read more

Today was a good day. I woke up in pain. I decided I would get moving and try to overcome the discomfort. I stretched. I had something to eat and took my morning meds. I had a cup of coffee. If I couldn't go to church, I couldn't go anywhere.... Read more
Friday Night Lesson Learned
Friday, November 25, 2011      3 comments

I came home tired and not willing to cook tonight. Dear Hubby wanted to eat at Applebee's. I tracked all I ate, and I went over my calorie range big time. Did I overeat? No. I actually didn't eat everything I had. Just the sheer calorie count of... Read more

I have tried 3 times to post this blog... Going to keep it simple this time... I won the battle of the buffet! I had a nice meal, and I didn't over eat. I ate what I wanted in sensible portions. I am proud of me! I went over my calorie ran... Read more
