I've been reading lots of stuff from Prevention, Spark and other healthy finds. An offshoot of this is my new plan is to set a goal for the day and a weekly goal. I have a tendency to make a lofty big goal, but not focus on what I need to get th... Read more
I planned on stopping for a bagel and cream cheese today but when I got to the counter to pay, I found myself holding a small box of Special K red berries and skim milk. How did that happen? Read more
Step away from the cupcakes and no one gets hurt
For lack of a better word, I fondled the cupcakes at the supermarket (with my eyes). I picked up the package and thought about it. Good sense won out and I am already feeling lighter.
I carry my spark friends with me wherever I go.

Inspiration is everywhere!
I ate beets today! I'm not saying that it is such a remarkable feat that there should be a parade down Main St. for me, but it felt like a significant moment at the salad bar. I also had tomatoes, spinach, grapes and a few chickpeas. There was s... Read more
Beer and Tacos
It occurred me while driving home from work that my hubby would probably be a happy little camper if there was beer in the fridge. I abhor the parking lot of the place, but I went. I tucked my car into a far corner from the door and went in and ... Read more
I'm smiling at myself in the mirror, enjoying the hint of a dimple returning. On Fridays, I like to stop at Panera Bread for a little end of the week chill time. This morning, I stopped but did not have a monstrous breakfast as I have had in the... Read more
C is for Commitment
There! It happened! I did not get up this a.m. --- might be Real Housewives of NJ related where I stayed up past my bedtime. Ridiculous. BUT....I am committed to working out today even though I did not get up this a.m. to go to the gym. I will e... Read more
Done and Done
Besides sparking, I'm into facebook, and very recently, twitter.
Today I came across a post from Kurt Warner (football player). Here's what he said that spoke to my heart: "I DON'T WANT 2 WORKOUT! Ever been there? Not going to dwell on it, ... Read more
Lost and Found
It was hiding for a while. I'm not sure if it was under a rock, or perhaps in one of the cabinets way back under the sink, but it doesn't matter any more. I found it: my passion for life.
I was caught up in one dimensional thinking, lettin... Read more
Case of the sickies
Feeling much better now --- but no gym and little movement for me today. I hope to be back to "normal" tomorrow. I was totally punked out this a.m. and even stayed home from work and a meeting. This too shall pass. Hope everyone is staying cool!... Read more
118 Days and 17 Minutes
Alarm went off at 4:50am. I squished my head into the pillow. I really wanted that sleep, but there was a good possibility I would lay there and not be able to sleep anyway. I rolled half way over and prayed, "Jesus, let me get up and go, but I ... Read more
Cleared the table,now just need to clear my mind
Water bottles filled and put in fridge for morning. Read more
It All Starts Somewhere
I don't think I'll have any trouble sucking down water today. Geez, it is hot and steamy today. I decided that I am going to try to leave my office when I want to eat. I did bring my lunch as I most often do, but I always eat at my desk. I get i... Read more
Sometimes, I am all for censorship. Not the kind where you're burning books because you disagree with the doctrine, but the kind where the description is superfluous to the story. Last night I was working and a patron told one of my staff that "... Read more
Never Say Never
One of my very best attributes is that I rarely give up on people. OK, sometimes this does not always work out the way I plan, but on a day like today, when a kid I have nurtured and mentored and tried really hard to help, shows me that he is li... Read more
