Day 15 compliant
Monday, January 11, 2016      15 comments

It doesn't end, Sparkees. I cannot get over how much work I have this week. It's rarely this nutty, but everything that has been hanging around, waiting for this thing to resolve, or that person to act, or the other thing to come through has ALL... Read more
Preparing to Eat Healthy for the Week
Sunday, January 10, 2016      12 comments

My goal on the chalkboard at Spectrum is to "Walk through Market Basket without any pain." We put that up about 2 months ago. I did it yesterday, Sparkers. My weekend was full with additional activities that I don't usually have. I was out on an... Read more
Observations on Compliance Days 12, 13, 14
Sunday, January 10, 2016      8 comments

First off, let's get it out of the way. Friday - not even close; Saturday - compliant; today - yes, I will be. This is what has been underlined for me in these last two weeks. I am a very strong emotional eater - especially when that emoti... Read more
Day 11 - Compliant, Still Working, Living Under a Rainbow
Thursday, January 07, 2016      15 comments

Sparkers... did you ever have a stretch where all you get is good news? All the storm clouds blow out to the ocean and you are left with clear skies and sunshine? That has been this week for me at work. My staff and I (mostly my staff) hav... Read more
Day 10 - Compliant and the Dawg is on a Roll
Wednesday, January 06, 2016      12 comments

They are making me work, Sparkers! I don't know who "they" are but I am still at the office and it is 7:15. Ugh. I have one of SWEDE_SU's "deadly lions" to meet... well.... it isn't *her* deadly lion. It's my own. But you know what I mean. I'm p... Read more
Not Compliant Day 9
Tuesday, January 05, 2016      11 comments

Didn't make it today, Sparkers. I gave it due consideration and decided to have a glass of wine with dinner. Pressure filled day. I have work to do tonight - I rarely bring work home with me and I resent it when I have to. Lots of stuff going on... Read more
Compliant Days 7 & 8
Monday, January 04, 2016      14 comments

I did well yesterday and today. I got my meals planned and ready to go on Saturday and Sunday. Dan and I went out for dinner last night, which I'd planned for. Dan wanted a later dinner. If I were choosing, I would have gone for late lunch. Next... Read more
Compliant Day 6 - On Will Power
Saturday, January 02, 2016      12 comments

SPT is spot on when she says that our will power is limited. I used every last scrap at an open house that Dan and I were at today. Not an abundance of food, but enough fatty and sweet temptations to make it difficult. We went AFTER our swim. (M... Read more
Yesterday (Day 5) Compliance
Saturday, January 02, 2016      11 comments

Technically, I did not follow the plan exactly, but overall I was fine. I actually had a better choice for lunch with my friends. It wasn't on the online menu, but when I saw that I could have broiled scrod and steamed vegetables, I opted ... Read more
A Cheerier Post & Plan for Compliance
Friday, January 01, 2016      14 comments

First off... I hate those whiny, woe is me, my body hurts posts. Like too many cocktails, it feels good in the moment, but the next morning there is regret and guilt. Thank you for your sympathy and support. It is hard to live with chronic pain ... Read more
Day 4 - Compliant so far
Thursday, December 31, 2015      12 comments

First of all, thank you all for responding to my heartfelt plea for prayers on my status this morning. I'd never post something like that on FB. Too much explaining needed. Too much unwanted attention. (Don't get me wrong, I love attention, but ... Read more
Day 3 - Compliant
Wednesday, December 30, 2015      12 comments

I have the hungry horrors, Sparkles and Sparkellas. I ate my protein shake AND my breakfast before my work out. Breakfast is for after the work out. At the office. With the paper and my coffee. Not today. Then I ate my apple at 9:30! That and a ... Read more
Day 2 - Compliant & Charlie Horses
Tuesday, December 29, 2015      12 comments

Man, the cravings were fierce today. Just a couple of weeks allowing refined sugar and flour back in my life and I feel like an addict again. I did the SPT Suseptability Quiz and scored a 6 - so thoughts and cravings take up a lot of my brain ti... Read more
Day 1 - Compliant
Monday, December 28, 2015      10 comments

I just read a bunch of your blogs, Sparkaholics. We are all using each other's ideas, reflecting on each other's struggles and insights, and overall encouraging each other to get back on track. I LOVE IT! Yesterday I rashly announced that I... Read more
Sunday Mass and Monthly Goal
Sunday, December 27, 2015      10 comments

I am not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow, Sparkers. I've enjoyed this long weekend. The 4:30 alarm is going to come around very quickly. I was hoping to make it to Sunday Mass this morning. I made it to Christmas Mass, since ... Read more
