Use the Power of the Sparkpoints!!

Wednesday, June 06, 2012      8 comments

So, one of the things I think helps me the most is SPARKPOINTS. Since I made my commitment to be healthy and fit, it has become my "second job." So everyday, I commit the time it takes to go on the website and educate myself about health and f... Read more

Your Body is Talking - Are You Listening?

Tuesday, June 05, 2012      7 comments

I really do believe that this process involves experimentation - HOW much should I exercise daily? What kind of exercise keeps me interested (has to be fun!) but is still challenging and effective? What foods seem to boost my metabolism? How ... Read more

Planning to Succeed is NOT an Accident!

Monday, June 04, 2012      4 comments

Well, here's something to learn by. I didn't go to the grocery store yesterday like I should. I was going to use our little building cafe this morning to get some bacon and boiled eggs. I go upstairs and they are NOT selling cooked food any l... Read more

Well, I was going to swim today, but I can't find my pool key. Foodles. That means I'll have to get another one from the HOA office and they will charge me $35.00 to replace it. Pooh. The weather is beautiful, though, so I think I'll take Li... Read more

LONG tiring meeting today. One of those situations where you have to be "on" the entire day. No worries. I ate at the hotel for the free breakfast - no problems because they had eggs and sausage (protein!) and I really have no problem with po... Read more

Day One on the Road -Success but a Lesson!

Wednesday, May 30, 2012      5 comments

Did great today. I don't worry so much about eating out anymore, because I use the Sparkpeople phone app to plan what I eat at most restaurants. HOWEVER, I get to this rural NC county I'm in and guess what? Yep, NO INTERNET CONNECTION ON MY P... Read more

On the Road Again!

Tuesday, May 29, 2012      4 comments

Normally my job requires LOTS of travel and I'd be out of the office for two weeks of every month, AND at least an additional overnight in the off weeks. We have been reassigned to other tasks due to some Press coverage and I'm now doing Child ... Read more

Memorial Day

Monday, May 28, 2012      3 comments

Thank you to those who have given all. This day is bittersweet for me, since my son is a Sargent in the United States Army. I don't ever like to think about those that die in service to our country, because that is a mother's greatest fear. B... Read more

Had a VERY busy weekend. Went to a Chinese buffet with my brother on Friday. First time at a buffet in almost 3 months. Outcome? 291 CALORIES. I now use the SP phone app and count my calories as I go at the buffet (or before if it's a sit d... Read more

That means NO CHANGES. No "it's the weekend so I'll just cheat a little" or "I deserve a rest" kind of thinking. THIS IS A LIFESTYLE CHANGE. My life doesn't stop on the weekends - in fact, there is MORE TIME to do healthy and fit things AND g... Read more

Playing Head Games

Tuesday, May 22, 2012      5 comments

I have to say that my journey has become so much more than just a "diet." Changing my mind in order to change my body is about a lot of things. Here is what I've realized: 1. Changing the way you think/feel about yourself takes PRACTICE.... Read more

"I Don't Have Time"

Monday, May 21, 2012      4 comments

“Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not g... Read more
