I spent some time looking over my last 2 weeks of food and moods. I totally see a trend, which doesn't surprise me. The days that I eat more carbs and have an artificial sweetener are moody, low energy days. The days I stay at or below 100g carb... Read more

Not long ago, 2 days to be exact, I was very unhappy and feeling 'blah'. Today I feel happy. I haven't changed much. I am eating better for sure, and I am thinking about ways to be a better mom and wife (and better to me). It's nice to just be h... Read more

It has been a really long time since I visited Spark. Lots have happened. Mostly I haven't been taking very good care of myself or my family (mostly myself). I don't really know why. . . maybe it's easier to just not care about myself. The... Read more

Last night went great. I had planned to eat some leftovers I had in the freezer, but my husband had made tacos for him and the kids and they smelled so good. I couldn't get those tacos out of my head. Instead of ignoring it and thinking about th... Read more
