Even though I started out grumpy today, I ended the day on a smiling note. emoticon The best thing to happen ... Read more
Monday, day 80 MT. A new week, a new snow storm and the same old thing.
Monday, March 24, 2014      7 comments

Everything old is new again. Or same thing, different day? Sure, it's a new week. Another chance to do something different, something that will make a difference. A fresh start. This morning it feels like Groundhog Day. Still coughing.... Read more
Day 79: A good Saturday, a relapse, a re-set and moving forward.
Sunday, March 23, 2014      6 comments

The good stuff: We sat on babies yesterday (family joke). I played Fisher-Price golf, pushed a tricycle full of 3 year old who hasn't got peddling down, scoped out every crocus in the yard, kissed boo-boos, made up stories about how sad the t... Read more

The past week I have faltered a bit as after work dinners have been haphazard. I met or came in under my goals all days except one. That's a bit of a fall back for me but I've been totally out of sync. Tomorrow is another day and it is suppo... Read more
Only 2 weeks left of this challenge? I'm signing up for 90 days more.
Thursday, March 20, 2014      10 comments

90 days sounded like a lot of days. I feel like I'm just getting started. I've lost a few pounds, changed a few habits and struggled with others. I'm feeling some old habits standing on my shoulders as I succumb to this bout of cold/aller... Read more

Wednesday, March 19, 2014      6 comments

Yesterday afternoon I grazed when I got home. Healthy grazing, but grazing none the less while I cooked dinner. Carrots and hummus. A few tomato pieces. I was hungry when I came home; I ate my lunch early at 11AM. I did not stop from 11:30... Read more
74 days of maintaining toughness

I have reached that point where the scale's not moving. It's time to move more which I have started. I keep being thwarted in my efforts by Mother Nature. Today the sidewalks will be clear, the air crisp and I think I'll start getting tho... Read more
Day 73, a tough morning for a tough Sparker
Monday, March 17, 2014      5 comments

I realized as happy as I am to see warmer weather, the mold must be growing outside under those leaves compressed by the snow. This is definitely my allergy migraine headache so I will treat it differently and will get back on track. Going in ... Read more
Insomnia: singing tough on Mentally Tough day 72
Sunday, March 16, 2014      5 comments

I back in the saddle again. How many of you know the song? Dad and Mom taught me all kinds of music. I grew up with a variety of "western" music. Sons of the Pioneers, Gene Autrey, Roy Rodgers, Slim Pickins. I watched "Hee-Haw" and the Gra... Read more
Day 71 Silly me but very tough. Ides of March contemplations.
Saturday, March 15, 2014      5 comments

Whether you follow Shakespeare or history, the Ides of March pack a wallop of thoughts. Edited from Wikipedia: The Ides of each month was sacred to Jupiter, the supreme deity of the Romans. The high priest, led the "Ides sheep" in pro... Read more
Day 70. I like the sound of that.

I don't think I've ever done anything with purpose for 70 days. That in itself is cool. I'm eating smarter, more thoughtfully. It's what I hoped to accomplish and hope to keep up for good.... Read more
Mentally Tough; continuing what I started. Day 69
Thursday, March 13, 2014      6 comments

We went out to dinner tonight and I did fine. One of my favorite places, Longhorns, where I can get a variety of foods I would not cook at home. Mostly nice beef. We are not big meat eaters, but every once in a while I need to be a carnivore. ... Read more
Day 68 Still trying
Wednesday, March 12, 2014      7 comments

I don't have much to say. Doing what I need to do. Surviving. Work has taken another turn and I final spoke to the head of a regulatory agency. Feeling extremely overwhelmed... you know how, ready cry any second, too grown up and profess... Read more
67 days of compliance. Learning to change one thing at a time.
Tuesday, March 11, 2014      7 comments

We live in a world of multi-tasking. I ask it of my staff. They ask it of me as does my boss and on, and on... When do we do something to perfection? Become Masters of a trade or experts at one thing? There were multiple issues I dealt with,... Read more

Like my BSFF (Best Spark Friend Forever), ONEKIDSMOM, I am tracking the 90 days of being mentally tough after following the fatloosers.com coaching by Steve Siebold. I have recommended this to some others as I have been very pleased with the tri... Read more
