SparkCoach blog: Today's (small) Achievement

Thursday, April 17, 2014

I'm seeing a connection between feeling tired and mindless eating - when my body is telling me it needs a rest, the impulse is to grab something to snack on, usually sugary. I can't help but feel like resting is using my time irresponsibly; but really, which is worse, taking a time-out, or feeding my body trash?

Today, when that slump set in, I caught myself in time and put on the brakes. In fact, I went as far as taking a short nap. I woke up feeling refreshed, with no remorse over snacking on junk. It feels good to listen to my body and care for it, rather than trying to keep it distracted with poor nutrition.

Yay me :)


SparkCoach blog: 3-5 Things I Love About My Body

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

1) my hair (thick & curly)

2) my hands (almost dainty)

3) my uterus! (my beautiful son's first home)

4) my brain (slow as it may be at times)

Well... this is harder than it seems. Can't say I love much these days, but I am grateful for the fact that my body functions despite all the abuse I've given it.

    Love that your body is healthy and you don't suffer from chronic pain that keeps you from getting out of bed some days.
You are a beautiful person inside and outside and should love that as well.

Chronically tired and in pain.

SparkCoach blog: Benefitting Others

Saturday, April 12, 2014

It's not just me that needs to eat better and exercise - my husband has diabetes, and I've been feeling terrible about not taking better care of him. Plus our dogs would be thrilled to walk more!
