My time to spread the spark!

Thursday, August 12, 2010      5 comments

Girls Weekend! It's that time of year again, when a dozen of us retreat to a friend's isolated cottage and chill out, swapping stories, sharing laughs and just "being". Last year, while we sat on the dock, my friend Sue described how she had los... Read more

There's a Spark in my head...

We went up to the lake for a couple of nights last week, before continuing on to Montreal for this past weekend's fun. The lake is a bit isolated, and large, so there isn't any cellular coverage. We arrived late on Wednesday and left Friday morn... Read more

A bunch of things are bouncing around in my head... mind if I just dump them out? - I'm on vacation for 2 weeks! - Murphy's Law of my vacation, though: my partner is a sole proprietor / business owner ( www.blacksheepcreative.c<... Read more

4lbs down, 4lbs up, 4 days

Saturday, July 24, 2010      0 comments

It's interesting how the body works, isn't it? I got myself back on track for a day or two, gulping down water, trying to get thoughts of cookies and sweets out of my head, and replacing them with better choices (how about an apple?). I wasn't e... Read more

Getting back on Track

Monday, July 19, 2010      2 comments

I'm trying not to let my frustration get the better of me, since I'm mostly frustrated with my own self for letting myself slip from the healthy path. So far today, I've had solid meals, no junk food snacks, no diet soda, and 1L of water = all g... Read more

I'm slipping. Letting my guard down. I'm actually pretty bummed about it. I want this weight loss journey to become a maintenance journey, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a healthy weight so much that I might be a bit too relaxed. I haven't ... Read more

Thinking vs. Doing

Wednesday, May 26, 2010      5 comments

I'm one of those thinker-analyzer types who gathers all sorts of information for a project before taking any concrete action - perfectionism at it's finest, stifling any efficient productivity a lot of the time since I never have "all the inform... Read more

Oh Glorious Day!

If there were a perfect day, this might be it! The sun is shining, it is warm outside, it is Monday, and a holiday. I woke up after 8 hours of restful sleep to the alarm on my blackberry (which I had forgotten to turn off the day before) in anot... Read more

Too much of a good thing?

Another day, another hot yoga class. Today was a bit different though. Instead of staring into my own eyes in the mirror, maintaining my focus, I was just trying to stay upright through my dizziness between the various standing poses! I know I w... Read more

25 down and almost there: 9 things that have worked for me

Monday, May 17, 2010      4 comments

I've lost 25lbs on my weight loss journey, crossed a never-before line in my weight (below 140lbs!) and hardly recognize myself as I enter this final stretch. I thought I would take a few moments to reflect on the changes that I've made and what... Read more

We got a Wii Fit almost 2 years ago. When I stepped on it, and it told me my BMI was over 27 and "That's overweight!", I was a bit taken aback and thought I should lose some weight, but didn't really take it seriously. It made my little Mii pret... Read more

Two Choices

I'm on vacation this week with my partner's family - mother, uncle & cousin, 3 siblings and their spouses and their 6 little boys. On the way here, we agreed that we would get up in the morning and get some exercise before launching into whateve... Read more

Goals for this (vacation) week

Monday, May 03, 2010      0 comments

I'm a bit out of my element, in a huge, gorgeous 4-storey log cabin in the woods in Tennessee, with 16 of my in-laws, so I really need to focus on my own goals for the week... I'm pretty much along for the ride for this vacation. 1. Maintain ... Read more

Making Progress

Sunday, May 02, 2010      2 comments

I came to SparkPeople for a reason, to find more balance and lasting lifestyle changes than I was accomplishing while using the Livestrong site. By reading The Spark and articles on, I am starting to fill in some of the gaps. I ... Read more
