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

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

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
Time for photos of my kids
Saturday, March 08, 2014      9 comments

It's been a while since I posted anything concerning these grandkids. We don't connect like we used to as work is tough for me and my kids are finding more to do with two of their own. However we took a trip to a local aquarium last week. What f... Read more
Day 63, still doing it. Tough.
Friday, March 07, 2014      7 comments

I don't like coughing. I don't like coughing and being an older woman. I don't like coughing, being an older woman and having a full bladder. I am mentally tough. I am conquering my eating problems. I am a bit physically wimpy toda... Read more
62 days of toughness.
Thursday, March 06, 2014      9 comments

I've seen the scale go down 13 pounds since January. I think it all came together at the same time. Done with feeling fat. Done with being out of control. Done with letting my emotions control my eating habits. New job, less driving. ... Read more
