Keep your Spark close and your Spark Friends closer

Friday, June 17, 2011      3 comments

I was reading a blog the other day written by KITHKINCAID about an amazing date she had and it got me to thinking about what a HUGE part of my life Spark People is and how much I enjoy following the lives of my friends. For most of us this... Read more

Encouraging with Discouragement????

Tuesday, June 14, 2011      3 comments

I have read a few blogs from different people lately about others who are less then supportive on a site designed for support? That completely flabbergasts me???? Even though we post pictures and share very personal experiences, we are st... Read more

The Cardigan

Thursday, May 26, 2011      5 comments

I am an insecure person by nurture. Yes, you did not read it incorrectly, by nurture, not nature. When we come out of the womb naked and thrown on the scale for the first time, we don't care about the numbers on the scale or worry about how... Read more

Who's really in control?

Monday, May 23, 2011      3 comments

I had a frustrating week last week and with frustrating situations comes the inevitability of how I am going to handle them. As my weekend began, how I handled them really got me thinking about who is really in control. When I got home... Read more

What does "limbo" got to do with it....

Wednesday, May 18, 2011      0 comments

Last night I was feeling uneasy and what I eventually said to myself was a feeling of limbo. In the midst of this analyzing I was eating, and saying to myself, "you know you are going over your calories for today, but you know what, that is ok... Read more

Openness, Humility and Accountability

Wednesday, May 11, 2011      2 comments

These were three words used by a speaker I listened to this past weekend. A friend of mine invited me to attend a breakfast that was organized by her church. The theme of the meeting was how can a woman be unshakable in times of struggle. T... Read more

Apply pressure were needed

Thursday, April 07, 2011      0 comments

I don't know about everyone else, but I put a lot of pressure on myself. What I find interesting is where I chose to apply that pressure. Being a success in my household as a child was the way to my father's heart. He was a tough custom... Read more

Where I spend my time...

Thursday, March 31, 2011      2 comments

I have this strange habit of seeing, hearing or feeling something in the present and then connecting it to a bad experience in my past. I once read in a book about self esteem that people with low self esteem do that because they do not value t... Read more

What I am famous for...

Monday, March 28, 2011      1 comments

Pretending....I am really famous for pretending. Pretend reminds me of how I occupied my time as a child. This line from a John Mayer song..."I was born in the arms of imaginary friends"...sums up my life as a child...spending time with m... Read more

My humble abode

Friday, March 25, 2011      6 comments

I moved to Arizona from San Diego 4 1/2 years ago. It has been a major adjustment for me but I am finally starting to call it home. When I moved to AZ I bought what I like to refer to as a "Chabby Chich" mobile type home. It is a perfect home... Read more

The ramblings of an internalizer

Monday, March 14, 2011      1 comments

I have had a really bad bout of insomnia over the last week or so. At first I was like, everything is fine, why would I be having trouble sleeping? Then I said, really, are you being completely honest with yourself or are you trying to put a ... Read more

Letting it in, letting it out and letting it go...

Tuesday, March 08, 2011      0 comments

I was thinking about letting go the other day when I was exercising. I have never been a fan of exercise. I have tried to put every spin on it I can but at the end I just do not like it. When I am doing it however I feel a certain feeling,... Read more

I am 1 today!!!

Tuesday, February 15, 2011      1 comments

I have spent several years of my life (since I was about 16 years old) with an extremely dysfunctional relationship with the scale. Most of the time avoiding it, not because I was not sure that I was over weight but because I just could not fa... Read more

Nobody told me there would be days like this....

Thursday, February 03, 2011      2 comments

Strange days indeed... Yesterday was one of those days indeed. The company I work for is an industrial real estate company, and has been struggling since the downturn. Things seemed to have somewhat stabilized, or at least I though... Read more

The Great Leap Forward...

Friday, January 14, 2011      1 comments

That leap to filling the void... From an anthropological stand point, the Great Leap Forward happened after Homo Sapien appeared. Culture over took evolution and we are where we are today; evolution has come to a halt and the human race is... Read more
