It's a Process

Wednesday, August 04, 2010      8 comments

Along with a few tour groups, I went for a walk this afternoon around a local college campus. While I was walking, an idea just clicked. emoticonRead more

Return of the Mojo

Wednesday, August 04, 2010      8 comments

Once upon a time in a land far away (Boston), a young lady (40 something) lost 70 lbs. by eating more healthfully than she ever had, and walking a few miles a week. She loved her time walking even though she had to deal with seeing bats fly arou... Read more

Choices not changes

Friday, July 30, 2010      12 comments

People hear about upcoming changes, and frequently go into panic mode. Inherently, I don't fear change even if I don't always like it. I realize though that I am much more apt to embrace "it" --- if I think of it as a choice instead of a change.... Read more

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

Friday, July 23, 2010      5 comments

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

Thursday, July 22, 2010      3 comments

"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

Wednesday, July 21, 2010      16 comments

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

New Goals

Wednesday, July 21, 2010      8 comments

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

Bagel Bypass

Monday, July 19, 2010      7 comments

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

Saturday, July 17, 2010      24 comments

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. Her... Read more

Inspiration is everywhere!

Saturday, July 17, 2010      4 comments

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

Friday, July 16, 2010      8 comments

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

Subtle changes

Friday, July 16, 2010      7 comments

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

Tuesday, July 13, 2010      18 comments

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

Monday, July 12, 2010      7 comments

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
