Time for my 3rd installment of "What I've Done Right". Ugh-Even though I'm not feeling very positive right now, I know I've still got something to crow about this week (as do we all). So in the spirit of the challenge, here goes... 1. I r... Read more

SparkFriend, D2BD-DIVA, and I decided to do this "positive reinforcement" thing weekly. We both got a boost last week from taking time to think about the "right" things we'd done in our health journeys, share it, and encourage each other. ... Read more

Thanks to fellow Sparker, D2BD-DIVA, for the idea of focusing on the positive things we've done rather than obsessing about what we messed up on. She listed and challenged her team to list 3 things they've done right in the New Year. So here g... Read more

As winter weather sits in and mileage increases for the half marathon training, this has become my mantra. I found it a few weeks ago on a SparkTeam page. I think the author was unknown. I have always put inspirational quotes and scriptur... Read more

Well, my schedule wouldn't let me wait out the rain today so I ran my 3 miles in the rain. I usually enjoy it because I don't get so hot. Like I always tell me boys "You're not made of sugar. You won't melt" So gotta' be an example, right? ... Read more

Don't have a title for this one yet. There are so many points to make. Maybe by the end I'll figure out that title. In the past week, life did what it does best... Got harder! I'm not complaining. Things could always be worse, and I thank ... Read more
