I had everything "staged" for me to be ready to head to work this morning... I got my 10 minutes of exercise in first, had lunch ready to just grab and put in cooler. Clothes were arranged in closet, so after shower I dressed to my shoes. Tote, ... Read more

I'm just tired tonight...

Wednesday, January 04, 2012      2 comments

I did have a good day today. I have lost two pounds since Sunday. Very busy day. Tomorrow is another long day, but I am prepared for it. One of the nice things about tracking your meals in a notebook/food journal is that you can go back and l... Read more

My greatest goal...

Tuesday, January 03, 2012      3 comments

My greatest goal is to live a life that is fulfilling for me, and to encourage others to find peace and fulfillment in their lives. St. Francis of Assisi said that we are to spread the Gospel, sometimes by using words... well, I want to spread... Read more

Day 2. Thoughts on planning...DO IT!!!

Monday, January 02, 2012      5 comments

Take a day or two and look at how you really use your time each day. Use a timer and/or stopwatch to actually see how long it takes to do some of your daily tasks. Sometimes, just the THOUGHT of how long we assume it will take to do something p... Read more

When I write something down, it sticks in my brain. This is a blessing and a curse. Let me focus on the blessing part... Since I had established some goals and was making progress over the past 3 months, I wondered what committing to the 28 da... Read more

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

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

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?

Saturday, December 03, 2011      3 comments

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
