A Spiritual Perspective on Kindness to Self

Monday, September 16, 2013      4 comments

Being Good To Ourselves

Friday, September 06, 2013      3 comments

One of my goals is to be good to myself daily. Sounds like common sense, right? Unfortunately, what we often think of as common sense isn't alway so common. I am an action and goal oriented person so I am always doing, doing, do... Read more

Back Sparking!

Saturday, August 31, 2013      4 comments

I just got back from a 1 week trip to Denver. I had a GREAT time but truth be told, I was not a model sparker. I did not track once while I was away, my exercise was spotty, and I indulged a bit too much food and sweets a few of those days... Read more

My Recent Adventure...

Wednesday, July 24, 2013      5 comments

Happy Independence Day! As we celebrate our nation's independence from the tyrrany of British rule, it is also fitting--I think--to celebrate our own personal independence--or freedom-- from the tyrrany of an unhealthy lifestyle. What ... Read more

The Importance of Getting Away...

Monday, July 01, 2013      6 comments

This past weekend we spent two nights at a B&B in a charming historic town about 2 hours away from home. It was great. We got a deal we couldn't refuse from "Groupon get-a-ways"--so it was a relaxing and fun weekend away that didn't br... Read more

OKRA

Monday, June 24, 2013      9 comments

I've not been a big fan of okra for most of my life. It is not so much that I never liked it--it's more that I never really ate it. Growing up in NYC in a traditional Italian family, okra just never seemed to make it on our family's me... Read more

Being a Good Sparker--Breaking the Silence

Thursday, June 20, 2013      9 comments

I am breaking the silence with my blog post today. It's been several months since my last post. My how time flies! The good news is there has been no major drama behind my silence. It's been more about being lazy and apathetic. ... Read more
