Monday, June 06, 2011      8 comments

I used to get a local newspaper that had a column with that title and I always thought it was cute. But NO, I'm not MOANING! I am planning to kick some poundage to the curb this week! I don't read my Advantage Response Cards (ARCs) ... Read more

Well, it is June 4, and I am encouraged by what I've done in the first four days of the month. I've met most of my goals and feel empowered. I've gone to the fitness center 3 days out of four. I planned to go today but TC wanted me to help sp... Read more

Today I went to an aesthetician (I KNOW I spelled that wrong!) and got a facial with chemical peel and my teeth whitened. I got a manicure/pedicure. Last week I got my hair cut and colored. TC says he's got a new hot wife! ... Read more
Slacker Me
Wednesday, May 11, 2011      8 comments

Not really, but when it comes to Spark that's what I feel these days. Finals this week, almost done, just one today and then grading, grading, grading. I've tried to keep up with it as I go but you know how that is. Luncheons today, tomor... Read more

Monday, May 09, 2011      6 comments

I've been doing horribly with my eating and I'm scared to even get on the scale. But my clothes tell me what's going on, and it's not good! However, this is my last week. I have two 10-hour days Monday/Tuesday, and a shorter Wed/Thurs/Fri... Read more

TWO WEEKS LEFT

You'd think this would be an easy and happy time, but nothing is ever easy with me!! I've been known to overly-complicate things and make my life harder than it has to be. ... Read more
Anxiety
Wednesday, April 20, 2011      14 comments

When I feel overly-anxious, which I have been for several weeks, I lose focus and start living unconsciously. It's an old way of coping but it's not healthy or productive. It doesn't bring me closer to my goals, it just feels good "in the mome... Read more

Monday, March 28, 2011      9 comments

Thought for Today: Finding Time for Your Journey
Sunday, March 27, 2011      8 comments

Very often we (myself included) say we don't have time to plan, shop, diet, or exercise. We are too busy doing for our kids, our spouse, our parents, our boss -- everyone but ourselves. This is what Susan Estrich has to say in her book, "M... Read more

REALLY want to lose weight, that is? Every year between Christmas and New Year's I make a list of goals for the coming year. They can be personal, professional, or things I want for the house. It hangs on my bulletin board in my office wh... Read more

It's called "Making the Case for Yourself: A Diet Book for SMART Women", copyright 1997. This is an old book that I never heard of until a few weeks ago. I'm Sparkfriends with Watermellen, and I was always curious as to the name of he... Read more
