Day 72 - Kindness
Today, I was feeling down. I intentionally didn't blog or update my status because I needed to put myself in a more upbeat place. As if in response, although there was no way for her to know, a dear spark friend sent me a lovely message of sup... Read more

Day 69 - Happy Sunday! Blue laws?
I like Sundays. On Sundays, I like to remember my blessings and spend time with family and friends. I remember when Sundays were a quiet more restful kind of day for many, the days when blue laws were in effect. When I was a kid, they were bo... Read more

Day 64 Pondering positives....
I noticed that some Sparkers finish their day up with positives for the day. I can see the benefit of doing that, as a post reflection of gratitude. Yet, I usually start my day as a pre-reflection of my positives. For me, it helps me to get ... Read more
Day 63 - Is anyone really successful with WW 3 bite rule?
Yesterday, I read somewhere that WW has a 3 bite rule. I don't have the exact rule, but the gist of it, if I captured it correctly is based on diminishing returns...the first bite is really great, and by the 3rd bite you are satisfied.

I am feeling a little unfocused this morning. It will do me well to set some intentions for my day. My hip is healing and I feel very encouraged. Yet, I think it is prudent for me to abstain from exercise for this next week.

This morning I am feeling inspired. I hopped on a lot of sparkers blogs whose positives for their day just buoyed me up for the day. It's a great way to start a day.
