"You will never leave where you are, until you decide where you'd rather be." -Dexter Yager
Decidedly so. I'd rather have a good month of May, than not. So far so good, except I came down with a cold, so I've decided I need to push throug... Read more

The month of May has been a good month so far. I have been committed and meeting the goals I have set for myself. Evening snacking is always the hardest for me to get through. Goodness, it is sometimes hard to re-program the brain.

This morning, I was hopping around the blog community looking for some more inspiration. There is no shortage within our Spark Community. The stories that chronicle the journeys of our fellow sparkers is amazing.
I was captivated by one... Read more

Today I am feeling pretty darn good after tracking yesterday's party food into my calorie tracker. Not imbibing and taking about 2T of some yummy sides and same with the dessert seems to have paid off.
The party was wonderful. It was so g... Read more

Goodbye M-F structure that I love. See you in a couple of days.
Hmm, the weekend. I want to keep my momentum going despite today's party. Uppermost in my mind is wanting to make good on goal weight, sooner rather than later. I know what... Read more

One of my spark friends wrote about hunger. I had to think about my meals behavior. This girl (me) really looks forward to her food. In fact, if too many days go by without some interesting yummy meal, I start to pout. I am also glad that I... Read more

A lovely morning...and the birds are singing, more melodiously than is usual. I think they are happy to have a break in the rain too. But more is on the way, within hours ... Read more
Ch 3, Day 77
How about some exercise today? GREAT IDEA! Am I convinced it is? YES, but that means that now I gotta, "DO." Groan, groan, GROAN. For me, lacing up early in the morning is my best strategy, even if it must be in the rain.
DAY'S POSIT... Read more

I just passed the 25% marker on my third 100 Days of Accountability. The earlier part of my journey lacked momentum, so I am hopeful that the last 30 days of it will be more remarkable.
"Believe and you will achieve."
Simple right? N... Read more

Another rainy day. Yesterday, come early afternoon, the day flat-lined. I guess one could really call my Sunday a real day of rest.
A new day! An early morning!
Yesterday was Day 7 of my streak!

Ch 3, Day 74
I recently joined The Slowest Loser Team. I read their Thursday Spark People blog and got hooked on their concept, "Pay the price." Everyday, we make choices in which we pay the price toward our goals, instead of caving in. It is easy to forg... Read more
Ch 3, Day 73
I've developed an impatience about getting through each day to have another day down with my goals accomplished. I am not sure why I am feeling this way but it is creating an aura of tension around my days that isn't welcomed. Maybe it is beca... Read more

A new day! A new day of eating and I am looking forward to it. I had to forget about the yummy black bean burgers with chipolte mayo yesterday 'cause of mid day snacking....so I really plan to enjoy them today. I suppose something is really w... Read more
Ch 3, Day 71
I am going for the kind of day like I had yesterday. I set intentions for the day and followed through on all of them. I even forced myself through the last one to put some plants in the garden. Dare I think I might have my groove back on? B... Read more
