Settle in, Sparkers. I have a story and it's gonna give you all the feels. There are a bunch of runners in my Rotary Club. There's a runner who qualified for the Olympic trials for distance running. He won the Philadelphia marathon in 2016.... Read more

I just read SWEDE_SU's blog where she confesses to sliding down the slippery slope one day after the Beck Trek is over. I found so much comfort there because I did the same yesterday. I did great for most of the day. Planned my food. Packe... Read more

Now what, Sparkers? I finished the Beck Diet Solution with the team. I don't have a competition that I want to train for. I've met my bucket list fitness goals: push ups from the floor and body weight chin ups. I've toying with the idea of... Read more

Sparkers. Today is the day. It's 30 years ago that Dan and I married. On Friday the 13th. I wanted to get married on Hallowe'en, but my mother wouldn't let me. (You're making a mockery of marriage, Laura Ann!) So I showed her. LOL A real li... Read more

Holy sore muscles, Spark People! It's not often that I say that any more and it's usually Andrew-induced soreness, not Dawg-induced. Dan and I are enjoying a long weekend in Burlington Vermont. We left Friday and arrived in time for dinner.... Read more

Sparkers, it's the last day of Beck. Not only did I finish - huge accomplishment for this Dawg - but I actually enjoyed it! What's up with that, Dawg? What's up is that this time I decided that I was going to make it "My Beck Trek", as OKM is wo... Read more

I just wrote a long reflection to my Beck Buddy on the last 5 weeks of this Beck trek. This is my 5th attempt and the 2nd one that I finished. Well... we have a week to go, but at this point, I know I'll finish. This is by far the one where I ma... Read more

You know how I'm always saying, "Track your food, even when you go off plan. It's never as bad as you think it will be." I'm here to tell you, that yesterday was as bad as I thought it would be. As the Latinas at work always say to me, "Aye! Dio... Read more

Emotional Eating... Next to sabotaging thoughts with the scale, this is my biggest bugaboo. QUEENOFTHEFOREST really knocked the rocks loose in my head with her blog on emotional eating. She wrote in part: I have not yet learned to name my... Read more

Wednesday, November 01, 2017      13 comments

Well, Sparkers. Mixed results with the eating out/drinks thing. The Halloween house party was a bust. I succumbed to the cheese and crackers. Then I didn't order the cesar salad at dinner, I got a chicken cutlet sandwich instead. No fries, thoug... Read more

Beck Day 31. Today we are to make a decision about drinking. This is definitely an area for me to watch. A big chunk of my work is to go to evening events where not only is drinking a thing, but passed hors d'oeuvres are a thing. Double whammy. ... Read more

Holy Busy Day, Sparkers. I returned from my meeting in Canada yesterday. I made it home in time for dinner with Dan. It was good to catch up with him. I took today off so I could recover from the travel and get stuff done. Boy, howdee. I g... Read more

Sparkeroos! I'm still out of town. I say that I'm in Montreal, but actually, I'm at Manoir D'Youville in Chateautguay Quebec. It is on a St. Bernard Island on the St. Lawrence river. It is breathtakingly beautiful. ... Read more
