OK! I am back. I snuck off the corner for a couple of days to feel sorry for myself, and drop into comparison mode. The trigger? I think it was going to my parents' house and seeing many very successful people and thinking I was less than. I kno... Read more
Taking a happy break
I love music! For the last two hours, though, I have been tormented by someone who plays like Liberace (lots of banging and crescendos) on the piano that happens to be on my floor in the building. Dude, you're killing me. I started to come up wi... Read more
Falling into Place
"Falling" into place does not quite give the right impression for me right now, but I definitely see a synergy running through my life that I have not seen nor felt in a long time.
I'm in a happy place. I love the person I am. I love the p... Read more
Turned the Corner
Control. That's what has been eluding me.
I turned the corner tonight. I came home from work, and set a pot of water to boil. I called my Mom and chatted with her. (Put another check on the to-do list!) I made Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta and... Read more
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
