Every week has it challenges
Monday, April 10, 2017      4 comments

I somehow keep thinking that "this week is going to have some bumps but next week..." LOL! What a laugh. You know, I'm way too old to fall for that line but I still keep saying it in my head and here is the funny part...I believe myself! ... Read more

Wednesday, March 22, 2017      4 comments

My sons were in Boy Scouts when they were young and which is where we started making packet meals. It is such an easy way to cook. Aluminum foil with meat and vegetables piled in the middle, any seasoning you want and bake. That's it. ... Read more
Monday Thoughts

I've not lost as much as I have wanted to this month. I had hoped to lose 6lbs but so far, only 3. I have a few more days and could lose a little more but I thought I would start looking not only at this week but the whole past month and look ... Read more
Didn't stick with my plan the last two days
Saturday, March 18, 2017      3 comments

I went to KC with friends on Thursday and had planned on letting go of my usual choices for lunch and just enjoying my time. We were at Yard House watching the first round of NCAA games. Lots of fun and too many calories but I was ok and did n... Read more

Tuesday, March 14, 2017      8 comments

I'm pretty sure we all do this. Hang onto clothes that don't fit 'cause we are going to lose the weight someday. Well, this morning I got to have that moment. :) Yesterday I was feeling a little down because I had not lost much in March.... Read more

Thinking about clothes this morning
Wednesday, March 08, 2017      2 comments

As I was dressing this morning I realized, happily, that I have lost enough weight that my tops are starting to be a little big for me. Not so much that I'm going to give them up yet but certainly enough that it is noticeable to me. Yea! ... Read more
Eating lunch out the next two days
Tuesday, March 07, 2017      2 comments

I find eating out such a challenge. I've been thinking about what to eat since last night. Way too much mental anguish over lunch...right?! But I really want a good week and I know how eating out can derail the day. So, I'm pumping myself up ... Read more

Monday, March 06, 2017      3 comments

Today the Spark Coach asked me to think about 3 things on my bucket list and visualize them and how could I get that feeling today. I was a little dismayed to think that I don't have some big unfulfilled goal, other than getting my weigh... Read more
