Keep It Simple, Sweetie ---
Here's what I am focused on for my new short term goals
1) Walk 10 miles per week
2) Track mileage on pedometer
3) Eat 3 fruits and veggies a day (I have been suffering in this... Read more
There are Consequences
No matter what you do, there are consequences to those actions. That's just life. You can look at it as a game of numbers, you eat...the scale goes up. You move, the scale goes down. You don't do either,...you have a little bit of both.

Food is My Life
That's what it took to wake me up. Food has been ruling my life.
I've been thinking back over the few successes I've had in my life and what was different between then and now. I embraced things differently and got past the food. I focused... Read more
My Design-A-Life program is underway today. I have about 37 months until I turn 50 years old and in that time, I want to change my life for the better. I started looking at things I could accomplish in 30 days, and then just start multiplying. W... Read more
Climbing Mount Rushmore
I really did not know how I was going to be able to get in. Our car broke down (boo hoo) and we were going to be riding home in the tow truck. It was a long way off the ground. I don't have much spring in my step (yet) and hoisting, well, that w... Read more
On the Flipside
Chances are, if you are anything like me, and like many other people on this site have been, you could be fat. That's okay. It's a starting point. It's time to drop the self loathing and the shame that comes from having a body disproportionate t... Read more
Find Your Fire
You don't need anyone's permission to find the spark inside yourself that builds into a fire. It can start in the smallest of ways and before you know it, you are on the road that leads to reinventing yourself as the person you want to be and th... Read more
There's Freedom in Health
There's freedom in health. You can do what you want. You don't have to stop and think about it - Can I do this? The hesitation and the worrying are gone. You can stop fretting and move with ease and know that step after step, your body will be t... Read more
I was truly tired going to bed last night. It wasn't even 10pm, and I was already in there. I remember wanting to eat, but deciding to go lay down instead and this thought popped into my head.
What if, I had absolutely no ang... Read more
The surprising effect of Wii Baseball
I can't lift my arms too well.
There you have it.
I have been playing wii baseball for 2 days and I am still feeling it. Ha! I am becoming mildly addicted to hitting the ball out of the park - 4 home runs is my record. I am digging it ... Read more
Passing on pizza
My boss dropped by my office for a late lunch break. He invited me for pizza. I went but just had a diet snapple. We talked about how that guy IS getting the job and how I should "let it go" ha ha. Yeah, I will be all right - not happy about it ... Read more
I Believe in You
All it takes is a little belief. If you can't find it in yourself. Find it in Spark. If you can't find it in Spark, come to me. I will believe in you.
I've been off and on the wagon more times than I can possibly count. What has always made... Read more
I really should have been paying more attention. I backed into a car this morning. Luckily I was going very slowly and when I heard the crunch, I stopped and moved forward. I really thought I ran over something. It would have been nice to do a r... Read more
Forgiveness is a Funny Thing
Sometimes, it's nowhere to be found. I waited 29 years to drop the weight...the burden of the shame I carried for so long, and I would not forgive my tormentors who were just plain mean to me. I know it's 29 years because I did the math.

Why Can't I Be A Track Star?
The Ivy League Heptagonal Championships are in NY this weekend, and it got me to thinking. Why can't "I" be a track star? Well, truth of the matter is, I can't can't be. Dig those double negatives?
I can be a track star. I just have to get... Read more
