I've decided to give this visioning a try and was told that I needed a formal statement. So here goes: I see myself at my best weight and in optimum health, which allows me to focus on creating sufficiency in my income and affords me contr... Read more

I started the year with great expectations and 4 goals for the first week. Well, here it is the last week and my goals have dwindled to only one. I'VE GOT TO GET MORE SLEEP! ... Read more

WUB: Have You Seen My Consistency?

Sunday, January 20, 2013      3 comments

It's missing and I can't find it anywhere! Maybe three goals a week is too much for me, so I'm going to dial it back. This week, I'll try to focus on two goals--simple, easily achievable goals. 1. 7 hours of sleep per night 2. 40 minute... Read more

WUB: One Good Thing

Sunday, January 13, 2013      1 comments

The one good thing about a massive sugar binge is that I can go for quite a while without ever wanting to feel that lousy, hungover feeling again. So, the sugar monster is under control for the time being and I can focus on other things. I'... Read more

WUB: A Work in Progress

Monday, January 07, 2013      3 comments

I did pretty well with last week's goals--at least I stayed mindful of them and I learned some things. 1. Meditation is harder than it looks. My brain is like a bag full of squirrels most of the time. Quieting it for even 10 minutes is going t... Read more

Kissing August

Tuesday, July 24, 2012      3 comments

No, I am not as smart as a 5-week old. Still trying to teach myself how to eat for health. I DO want a lighter, stronger, healthier body but now I believe that won't come before I get a lighter, stronger, healthier mind. August will be KIS... Read more

Eating Like an Infant--the July Challenge

Sunday, June 17, 2012      4 comments

It's almost impossible to overfeed an infant. A full baby will either stop swallowing and allow milk to leak from its mouth, push things out with its tongue or clamp its jaws and refuse to open them. At one time or another, my children employed ... Read more

Okay, Body, Let's Try This

Wednesday, April 18, 2012      6 comments

There's so much information, some of it conflicting. What to eat, what not to eat, how much. What do drink, what not to drink, how much. And I don't seem to be doing any of it right. So, body, let's try this: Eat less, move more. ... Read more

Monday, March 19, 2012      2 comments

The books are done. FINALLY. I'm starting a line of preschool books, but that can wait until tomorrow. The Evil Scale finally moved again and that is worth celebrating, so right now my mind is taking me to Pelee Island, in Lake Erie. I'm ... Read more

Hard Choices

Saturday, March 03, 2012      4 comments

I LOVE SP and all my SP peeps, but my life is flying at the speed of light right now. I can't spend as much time Sparking as I have. I'm 8 miles below my goal for this point in the 1,000 mile challenge, won't even reach 5,000 of the 10,000... Read more
