Uninterrupted Quiet Time

Every morning before I go to work (no exceptions), I make tea, light an incense stick, sit at my little self made altar, and I focus on my breathing, read inspirational literature, and write. This has made a huge difference in my life. No matter what kind of anxiety I wake up with, I always feel re...

Jump on treadmill between studying

HI, what I try to do take a 2-3 min walk on the treadmill every hour between my studying, for quick study breaks. The same with working. Every hour I'm up for about 2-5 min trying to get my little walks in to boost my energy and get my brain working. If I am just doing reading for school, I will get...

Keep Coming Back

When I get off the program, stop my tracking and lose my motivation- I just keep coming back to it, starting over if need be. I am stubborn, I'll just keep coming back to it, over and over if need be, until I get things right. I have to persist, until I am able to truly be consistent and reliable. ...

Cherish the little victories

As I was gaining weight I didn't pay attention to loosing the ability to some things comfortably. When did I stop being able to sit cross legged? When did running become such a chore?

Water, water, water, protein

So far I have lost over 75 lbs since January 2017. I started at 241 lbs and now weigh 164.4 lbs with 14 more lbs to get to goal. I feel fantastic and believe me, everything is easier when you are at a normal weight. Walking is easier, buying clothes is easier (and more fun) playing with the grandk...

Love my fitbit!

My gift to myself for Christmas was a fitbit one, which is one of the cheapest of the fitbit. It comes with a removable clip to wear on clothing and accessories (I like to wear mine on my bra strap under my blouse) and I ordered two wristbands so I can also wear it like a watch.
The main reas...

All ya gotta do is BOUNCE!

After having a couple of days of not logging in, I realized that rather than looking at logging in SP as a big task or something that requires a lot of time/effort just treat it like maybe your Facebook or email.
