Day 74 - Ohmmmmmmm
That's my mantra today, to stay calm. I am quite uptight with client deadlines on me and company arriving tomorrow. I am in need of sleep, but after clock watching and thinking about all that I have to do today through Monday, I decided to jus... Read more

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
Some days the journey to fitness and health is nothing but rough going. Other days, it seems easy. Why is that so? If somebody could find the answer, she would be a genius and a millionaire.

Day 69 - Happy Sunday! Blue laws?

I am so enjoying my... Read more
Somewhere I lost count of my 100 day journey. Today I make the journey "whole" again. Taking stock, that should mean making myself "whole" for the day, too. Toward that goal, I will balance many things: food and good nutrition, work and play... 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.
