I stepped outside of the box....and my car.
Every Friday I pick my son up from school. I usually try to get there early to allow myself 20 minutes or so just to read. I enjoy my Friday afternoon book escape.
Today the weather was absolutely beautiful. About 80 degrees with a wonde... Read more
Aiming from a different angle.
I have been on this site for nearly three years now. (I think. lol) Even with all of the wonderful information, useful tools and amazing support system, I am only down 15 pounds from my highest weight.
Previously, I based my wins and f... Read more
Adjusting my weight loss ticker...again.
I'm making a full-on fresh start Monday.
I've regained some of my "shed", so adjusted my ticker to reflect the change.
I've finally committed to my ultimate goal weight.
Previously it seemed like such a large amount to lose,... Read more
Tending my garden.
I am generally a positive person, a “glass half full” kinda gal, but it has been a bit more challenging the past several years to maintain (yeah right) that perspective. I honestly started dipping below the line and started visiting the “half e... Read more
Flowing with it
I seem to have found my way back to the slow and steady mode. Not over zealous with dynamic workouts (although that is a goal), but getting my activity in and staying within my calorie range. Woot!
Most days it's been fairly easy to stay ... Read more
Another fresh start. Fortunately this one has taken place before too much back sliding.
I've been doing my hikes for several days and spontaneously throwing in some counter height push ups and squats. Building a base.
I've decided to foc... Read more
Non scale victory!
I have a visitation service to attend. ( I only met this person once 15 years ago, so it's not an emotional thing.) This is the first time I ever remember NOT completely stressing over what I was going to wear to something like this. I have an... Read more
Back on track day 1!
Woo hoo! Ate good nutritious food within my caloric range, got thirty minutes in on the treadmill, drank my water and treated myself to the library. A good day! ... Read more
Nothing like a little Karmic b*tch slap.
I have been confused, angered, disappointed and downright frustrated with a loved one who is dealing with a drug addiction. I just cannot understand the choices she has made and continues to make. My heart breaks with every bit of information ... Read more
Thank you motivated bloggers!
I've been in a bit of a funk lately and have struggled with getting my mojo back. My eating got off track and that led to cravings. Indulging a craving every now and then is good, in my opinion. Indulging cravings back to back, then repeat...... Read more
Please check your dryers!
Hello Spark World,
I'm putting out a "public service announcement" today asking everyone to please check UNDER their lint traps in their dryers. I am diligent about cleaning my lint trap every single time I do laundry and periodically clea... Read more
Making it Happen!
For the past 5 weeks I had been gaining and losing the same pound. Today I am finally over the hump with an additional half pound loss. It's a small movement, but progress none the less.
I'm not entirely focused on the scale and am noti... Read more
Another dead refrigerator.
Sometimes being the stock up queen just doesn't pay off. Woke this morning to a dead refrigerator. It's the extra one in the garage, but it was packed full. This is the second one in three years. The first one went out the day before Thanks... Read more

I helped my dad with some more moving today. I am so pleased to share that I did a pretty darned good job of lining up my food for the day.
Yesterday, I prepped my snacks, lunch, dinner and even filled a 3 liter jug with water. This morni... Read more
