Contemplating the non-negotiableprice of success
Wednesday, January 14, 2015      8 comments

Siebold nails it again in MT part 2 for me. Success is non negotiable. If you want to succeed you need to whatever it takes. I looked at the now-DH filled cabinet of snack, told myself I don't need any, don't like artificial colors and ... Read more
That time (weather) of year. I need a plant light over my head
Tuesday, January 13, 2015      9 comments

It dawned (no pun intended) on me this morning as I looked out upon the darkness and felt an overwhelming urge to cry, I'm feeling the effects of less sunlight on top of all the other things that are kicking me. I turned on a bunch of lights ... Read more

I AM starting a revolution in my head. I am staring in one too! To see me sitting here in my cozy bathrobe and fuzzy slippers, hair askew from sleeping well, you would not categorize me as a revolutionary. There is no fierce expression on ... Read more

Reminded to challenge myself and revisiting the Siebold 90 days.
Wednesday, January 07, 2015      6 comments

Thanks WATERMELLEN! After I mentioned revisiting my bog, she said she was reviewing the program again. Hey, why not? I was successful (net loss) last year and perhaps when revisiting I can get another, tighter grip on my issues. I ha... Read more

It's still not the best place to be but I'm making it work. Since I was hired the top administrator in my department was let go, I facilitated 2 being fired. The whole place suffered some poor management, interviews were poorly handled so the... Read more
Fall squash raita- Indian food heaven
Sunday, January 04, 2015      4 comments

Perhaps I waited too long to try this. My departed friend KOMAL53 used to give me recipes like my mother did. Add this, this and some of this. Cook it and done. Sure. I am in Indian food heaven right now; finding the spices was most of the b... Read more

Happy New Year to all. I look forward to 2015 as a bit of a rebirth for myself. Having high maintenance family members is not easy and I have been in a spiral for at least 10 years. This may be the year I can breathe. I can take care of me f... Read more
To sleep, perchance to NOT dream...
Tuesday, December 30, 2014      8 comments

Dreaming strange dreams again and not sleeping. Friday and Saturday I slept like the dead. I go to bed between 8:30 and 9:30. Sunday night I woke with a start thinking someone had called me. 1:30am. Tossed, turned got up and computed. Went bac... Read more

Attacking the food monster (again)
Sunday, December 28, 2014      8 comments

Girded my loins and armed myself for another round of pulling all those skills together. Yes, as everyone says it is key to track foods we eat. This time I've picked up an alternate weapon, the USDA Superfood tracker. Free, similar to Spar... Read more
Will the Spark site thwart my attempts at behaving? Technology is distracting
Saturday, December 27, 2014      7 comments

I fell away from my original reason to use Spark; tracking my food. I happily blog and read others' blogs getting great advice, shoulders to cry on and in turn give back. Nice. However, today I jumped back into the Food Tracker with both fee... Read more

Sparked my "weigh" through another year.
Wednesday, December 24, 2014      6 comments

I started out "mentally Tough". Road the Steve Siebold train for 90 days and developed some habits I've kept. Some I haven't. I got a grip on some mindless eating and when I lost that grip found it a bit easier to get back on track. I'... Read more
Reflecting on the year
Monday, December 22, 2014      7 comments

I have a net loss of about 10 pounds for this year. Hooray! After changing my start and goal weight multiple times that means I've lost around 25 pounds since joining Spark in 2009 I'd like it to be more but at least I'm taking it off like I ... Read more
