Why is this time so different?

Tuesday, December 08, 2009      5 comments

I think we all hear a lot about how Spark is different from other resources. I have been giving a good deal of thought to why this time is so different for me, why I earnestly believe that this time is the last time. I've come up with a few reas... Read more

Wednesday, December 02, 2009      5 comments

Tomorrow is my patents final. Patents law is hard, hard, hard and I am really paying for not studying earlier in the semester. Today was a busy, panicky, stressful day. I really wanted to crawl under a desk and hide. A few times, I wanted to cry... Read more

December Goals!

Saturday, November 28, 2009      6 comments

I have had a great November! Despite the fact that I have lost 6.2 pounds (so far) and done my Sunny Gals proud, I think I would have had a stronger month if I had set more clearly defined goals from the outset. With this in mind, I am setting t... Read more

Small Victories Add Up!

Saturday, November 28, 2009      9 comments

This week I only lost one pound. What is wrong with that phrase? Ah yes, the inclusion of the word "only". One pound of loss is amazing, fantastic and wonderful! I need to remember that small victories add up to a lifestyle change and need to be... Read more

Friday, November 20, 2009      9 comments

Habit #5 on the Spark Diet is "Eating with Purpose". And it is kicking my butt. I have had good success with the Spark Diet so far. I have had some cheat meals but for the most part I have been eating healthy foods prepared at home every da... Read more
