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
I Amaze Myself

I know it's funny how I act that you are the last to know, but obviously you are the first to get the news. I'm coming clean that I have not been as committed to you as I desire, and I've let others get in the way of me taking ca... Read more
Before You Drink It
Um, before you try out the new concoction in the blender, maybe you should bite the bullet and taste the soymilk first. I made a lovely smoothie this morning, with blueberries, frozen banana and flaxseeds with soymilk, and then when I tasted it,... Read more
I did it.
I ate breakfast. I had a healthy lunch. I did not snack on candy. I drank my water. I went for a walk (in the sunshine).
When I was tempted, I prayed.

The Reluctant Health Nut
I am doing it, but I am doing it kicking and screaming.
I have been struggling so much lately, and that is because I am surrounded by things out of control and I am powerless to stop life from spinning. This is nothing new. My reaction is ... Read more
Little by Little - You Can Still Get There
My commute this morning was sucky. Predicted snowfall began 12 hours early, surprising even the weather channel! Ha! Accidents all over the place, and one in particular which slowed down the first half of my drive to about 2.5 mph over the cours... Read more
Early Morning Babble
The good thing about being stressed about work, is that you can't sleep. If you can't sleep, you get up. So, I am up earlier than normal, allowing me extra time to spark, and make and eat breakfast, without wolfing it down on the way out the doo... Read more
All it Takes is a Little Effort
I have just come inside from an hour of snow shoveling and cleaning off my car. 60 minutes of moving is MAMMOTH for me. I am stunned that I had not collapsed in a heap in the driveway. Maybe my version of shoveling, is the lazy man's version of ... Read more

You Don't Need A Reason
You don't need a reason to go for a walk. Just go.
I had a morning meeting across campus, so I had to go, and I was psyched that although I couldn't really wear sneakers on my walk - I could add it to my fitness minutes. The first meeting ... Read more
