Just a weird day w/ couch potatos & a lesson in vacationing
Sunday, August 23, 2009      0 comments

So I took a micro-break from SP yesterday & didn't blog or work SP points in the morning as is my usual habit - I just wanted a micro-vacation; no responsibility, relax-n-unwind, enjoy the weekend. It was a little bit weird - felt rather 'o... Read more
I'm having a 'Fit' - wanna join me?
Friday, August 21, 2009      3 comments

I read the 'Fit, not Fast' article this AM - it reinforced the concept of diligently working a consistent plan, focusing on 'Fit' not the fastest shortcut that I believe will work. Handwashing the car and dishes, walking rather than car riding, ... Read more

Hi there; I usually blog in the AM, thought I'd try something new - blog at the end of day... thinkin' I prefer the AM since I'm a morning person. Other new things I've tried: - Stretched my 1 mile into 1.5 miles - Substituting ... Read more
Side effects?
Wednesday, August 19, 2009      1 comments

My floors are cleaner! Didn't see that 'side effect' coming (certainly wasn't looking for it!) Now how did that happen? Well, this morning I realized I felt good enough to mop the floor - excuse me, what? Yep - mopped my floor in th... Read more
Just Tuesday...
Tuesday, August 18, 2009      0 comments

The hard thing about consistency is that it takes time to grow & develop. Today is 'one of those days'; not the charge-ahead restart the week of Monday and not the 1/2 way there of Wednesday - justTuesday. Ah, so it goes.... one day after anoth... Read more
Wow - that Monday feeling...

Hey - this is new: I don't feel like a slug on Monday morning! I've had my first weekend where both days were healthy days! (yeah me!) Amazing what a difference the right nutrition, a bit o' fun (i.e., move it to lose it), and enough sleep w... Read more

Wow - am I really still connected on the weekend? Yeah me! I haven't undone a weeks worth of goodness by sinking back into bad habits on the weekend. Weekend blogging? That's a first for me. Working a spark streak of positive behaviors... ... Read more
My excuse closet: cleaned out 1 item
Saturday, August 15, 2009      2 comments

Got a new mindset - hardly hurt at all... : ) 'Working' the spark even on the weekend - no more couch potato-ish behavior to 'relax after a hard week' - finally cleaned out my 'Excuse Closet' and removed one more excuse. The closet is sti... Read more
Cleaning the Fridge
Friday, August 14, 2009      3 comments

Goal for this morning: clean the fridge - get it tidy, organized, and make it a point for success rather than a competitor to 'do the right thing'. I'm reshaping my thoughts (i.e., the fridge is a tool not the enemy) and expect body reshaping to... Read more

Taking the artificial sweetner plunge
Wednesday, August 12, 2009      1 comments

Hmmm - awhile ago I realized my sweet tooth was in control... So, I switched to beverages with articial sweetners and reduced white sugar consumption in foods. Note: I did not, nor am I ever, giving up desserts - just adding moderation to t... Read more

Rainy days - days of challenge to find an engaging, fun, indoor activity that burns calories. Avoiding the couch potato syndrome - I like to see an accomplishment at the end of the day. Still focusing on making good mini-decisions, one decision ... Read more
A plan for a 'Friday Finish'
Thursday, August 06, 2009      0 comments

Gearing up for the weekend: A pretty good week so far, mentally prepping for the 'Friday Finish' & consistency in the weekend. Weekends and evenings; i.e., my 'quiet time', are my weak areas - so this time, I'm mentally prepping for it. Going ca... Read more
Springing into Spring
Friday, March 27, 2009      1 comments

I love spring - fresh season, fresh start. Renewal. Spring doesn't think about what last spring was like, or how spring compares to summer. Spring just starts over & begins again. I love spring. ... Read more
