Yes! It is finally Friday! The weekend comes and we can relax, look back and consider our past week with a not so critical eye. ( I hope)
For me, this has been a good week and sometimes a not quite as good week.
It started with the long aw... Read more
Can I practice what I preach?
Well, yesterday wasn't as good an eating day as I had hoped. I hit Mcdonalds for lunch because I was out running errands and was really hungry. Then I had some ( 4 I think) fresh baked cookies my sister made. I sampled her homemade dip with a ... Read more
The second day of a new beginning :Taking Personal Responsibility
Well I made it through Jan 1, without doing to much damage to the strides I had made the previous week. I am very happy about that. No beating myself up over a very yummy chocolate brownie, ( it really was good) and 10 home made hot wings. My ... Read more

Getting back on the horse.
If you noticed I hadn't written anything in over a week, there was a good reason. I have been traveling. I have left the sunny state of Florida for the more sunny state of Arizona. It was a long hot drive. The first thing that struck me abou... Read more
All because of One Cookie!
I have managed to avoid my trigger foods for the past week. I have lost 8 pounds, but have been at a plateau for the last 3 days. In my mind, a plateau is an unconscious signal to eat, because what I am doing is not working. So today i went t... Read more
Smells like weight gain:
As I mentioned previously I was getting really bored, so I decided to go to BJ's which is a club store like Sam's club and get some dog and cat food. I forgot it was Saturday. Walking through BJ's on a weekend day it is possible to eat an enti... Read more
A little work never hurt anyone.
Ok, I admit it, I am basically lazy at heart. On a normal week ( when I work all week) I feel that my weekends should be time to relax and unwind and in truth, I usually do just that. However, today I got up and realized that I am really bored... Read more
Slowly moving forward, Learning to love Myself
I travel allot and often eat allot of junk food while on the road. This past weekend I was in TN taking care of some stuff with my son. Mcdonalds on the way up, Mcdonalds on the way back. During the ride home I became very reflective. If I w... Read more
Six days closer to home
I said I was going to blog to keep up with the things running through my head, so here I am this morning. I have pretty much given up even trying to eat right while I am here. When you have to move things around to pull out a little GF grill, c... Read more
Been a while
So here I am, back on Spark. As usual, I started out strong and faltered in the first lap. As usual, I am back to try again. I have been in MS working for the last 7 weeks and it has been difficult to stay on track with anything. First: I am... Read more
10 days have passed
Ten days have passed since I started back sparking and I had several really good days, but then I had several days were I binged. The end result was a 3 pound weight gain. It all kind of got me thinking. Changing the outside is hard enough, b... Read more
Today ended up being a veg day. I cannot pinpoint the reason why, but after I got up , let the dogs out,ate and got dressed ( oh yeah, checked homework and final grade from last class) I planted myself on the sofa in front of the television an... Read more
Day 1, started out ok. Then I got really angry and hit the bag of jelly beans up. I knew I needed to put them down and find another way to work out my anger, but I continued to eat. On the good side. I didn't beat myself up (much) for it. I... Read more
How many Day 1's are there in a lifetime? I guess the correct answer is as many as we wake up to. So once again, this a Day 1 of me trying to get my eating under control. I'm gonna be honest. It is probably the most difficult thing for me to... Read more
