My husband and I got home at the same time tonight. We opened the door to what he deemed "total carnage." There was torn up stuff EVERYwhere! Even the charging cord to my iPod was ripped to bits! There was dog doo on the floor, and the remna... Read more

I made four promises to myself yesterday: for seven days, I would track everything I eat, drink my eight glasses, go to bed by midnight, and get my 25 SparkPoints per day. {Sigh} I have indeed tracked everything I ate today, but am so sad ... Read more
Seven days
Saturday, August 25, 2012      8 comments

I am going to make a seven-day commitment to myself. Promise #1: For seven days, I am going to track EVERYTHING that I eat. Even those really hard to track things, like jumbled up salads or casseroles that other people bring in to work. ... Read more

I never get two days off anymore. I have packed my schedule too full and now I do my best to get as close to 24 hours in a row as a "rest day" that still includes things (like laundry) that probably do not belong in rest days. It is what it is... Read more
