  • Nothing changed, but everything changed. And now. I want to slap myself silly.

    6/22/2016 6:31:52 PM, by FITJEN48

    I took my own advice and then some advice from other people, and well, I shocked myself silly. Yesterday, I wrote about being your own cheerleader. And a few comments reminded me to also clue others in on their own lack o cheer, and bring them on board with the program, or at bare minimum, bring th... Read more

    I'm going to start this thing off with a story from the last couple of days. I'm trying to start my own gig. It's hard. I don't have tons of time or money to devote to it, but if I don't do it, I'll go insane. Now, my husband started his own gig a couple of years ago and it's worked out pretty doggo... Read more

  • Fired Up, Part 2. Match has been struck.

    6/17/2016 10:55:52 AM, by FITJEN48

    Last post was about going from fired up to doing something about it. Here's my progress: My goal was to walk 40 miles in June. So far, I have racked up 30.29 miles and have 13 days left to go. That's about 1.3 miles a day. I usually walk close to 3 4 or 5 days/week. Kind of makes me want to r... Read more

  • Down but up and going again!

    Oh my goodness! Gosh I hate this up and down all the time! Makes me want to cry and beat myself and kick myself and then cry again with myself! Heee heee It's been crazy! First and foremost, I was down for about 1 1/2 weeks with my back. Many of you may not know but I often have issues with my back.... Read more

    So, I just got off an awesome Michael Hyatt Webinar about why people don't achieve their goals. Most of us are familiar with goal setting. We've heard the SMART goals acronym..bla bla bla. But, I want to share a little something funky that has been true for me, what changed and how it's helping me n... Read more

  • Taking Care of Yourself as an Act of Love.

    6/6/2016 7:59:17 AM, by FITJEN48

    I've definitely gone through times when I thought time spent working out was time I could have spent with my kids. Or, when food I purchased especially for me that my family wouldn't eat was selfish. I know better now. Oh sure, my mind has allowed weight loss to be a bit of a god in my past. It... Read more

  • Lessons from the Great Clutter Clean Out. with pics

    6/1/2016 8:52:35 AM, by FITJEN48

    Two weeks ago began a process that I have chronicled here on Spark. Starting in my basement, accumulated junk has been ushered out of my home and into the dump or thrift stores depending on its usefulness and condition. I promised myself to be done by this past weekend, and that promise was kep... Read more
