Work offers us a new web-based program to go with our insurance. If we meet the participation goal this year, we get a reduced insurance cost next year. We aloso get free health coaching in the doctor's office they installed downstairs. My go... Read more

Meditation Fail

Thursday, October 16, 2014      3 comments

I did my first guided meditation tonight. It was nice, but I don't think it worked. OK, so I wasn't expecting it to solve all my problems and remove all my stress for the rest of my days. I didn't expect it to change my life, or even my a... Read more

Before meeting with health coach

Monday, September 29, 2014      2 comments

I am fortunate enough to have a wellness coach in my life. I am currently checking in with her about once a week. Having recently begun my seven-year plan, I am focused on one of the most difficult aspects of it: carbohydrate consumption. I h... Read more

It's a new day!

Saturday, September 20, 2014      5 comments

I binged last night. Not my worst binge, but a binge nonetheless. I ate too much from the fast food restaurant and followed it with three Klondike ice cream "candy bars." As that was not enough, I decided to have a wine cooler too. Yet t... Read more

Sugar Addiction

Sunday, September 14, 2014      6 comments

I really struggled today, desperately wanting to binge on sweets. Instead, I made a list of reasons why I want to reduce my consumption of sweets, and why I want to healthier and maybe smaller. I told myself (multiple times), "Today, I will li... Read more

Day one: complete

Thursday, August 21, 2014      5 comments

I used my lunch to take a mile walk yesterday, which definitely took more than 10 minutes. So it looks like I am well on my way to making my 11-day SparkStreak a reality. Read more

New SparkStreak

Wednesday, August 20, 2014      4 comments

I get to start a new SparkStreak today. I just ended a 10-day streak of 10 or more workout minutes. I meant to do Tuesday, but life happened and what's done is done. I start again today (Wednesday, August 20) and am going for an 11-day streak... Read more

Going sweets-free pays off

I am down a pound and a half this morning as compared to last Monday morning. This is exciting, yes, but tempered greatly with the fact that I have not been the least bit conscious of healthy living for quite some time. OK, that may be a stret... Read more

Walking Hector

Sunday, August 17, 2014      2 comments

Hector and I walked for about a mile today. We left Gunner at home to get some rest, while we used up some of Hector's energy. We got Hector because Gunner had so much energy, he needed someone to play with. Now, Gunner's worn out all the tim... Read more

Day Eight

Saturday, August 16, 2014      4 comments

I just completed a 21-minute in-home walking mile with Leslie Sansone, making today the eighth day of my SparkStreak. My goal was seven days of doing 10 or more minutes of concentrated fitness effort. Some days were more accomplished than othe... Read more

Dear Mr. SparkGuy: I just wanted to let you know that not only did I take you up on the 10-minute challenge and set myself a goal of a seven-day SparkStreak, but I was SUCCESSFUL! Most days, I did more than 10 minutes. Every day though, I... Read more

Tempted but successful

Today is day six of my seven day streak challenge. Morning came oh-so-early. Ten minutes of anything other than more shut eye never crossed my mind. I was in training all day and so never had a chance to get my 10 minutes in during the day. ... Read more

And the streak continues

Oh my gosh, Tuesday night I was sooooo tired. I really did not want to do my workout. I had skipped it in the morning because I was tired in the morning. Funny how I wasn't any less tired after being up all day. Read more

Starting early

Monday, August 11, 2014      5 comments

Rather than waiting until the end of day three to make sure I met my 10-minute commitment, I did it first thing this morning. I weighed in on my Wii Fit, so it seemed appropriate to use it for some exercise too. I did a Wii Fit Routine, which ... Read more

Honoring the commitment

Sunday, August 10, 2014      2 comments

I nearly forgot my goal of a seven-day 10-minute workout streak. I wanted to be in bed half hour ago and had just eaten, so I knew my 10 minutes would have to be light. I grudgingly stepped onto my Wii Fit and earned seven minutes through bala... Read more
