I've been working with a personal coach from Dr. Roizen's 'Enforcer' program and have developed some pretty good/realistic goals to help me develop consistency. Planning to track them here in a little more depth than on the Sparkpeople Tracker p... Read more
Today's Sparkcoach lesson was about Diet Saboteurs; those people in your life who are less than supportive of your healthy efforts for various reasons. This is a hard one for me, because I have one who is very close in my life and one who is 'ou... Read more
What do I hope to achieve?
Today's Sparkcoach session was about defining your vision. Sparkguy didn't use those words, but that's what popped into my mind.
I've got exactly two minutes or I won't have time for Yoga before my shower, waking the kids up, and rushing of... Read more
It's Been Far Too Long, My Friends
Sheesh. The last time I posted anything beyond a status was in January. That's bad.
I'm on a roll with Sparkcoach, though. I started taking notes on the sessions. That seems to help me pay attention/remember/internalize the information bet... Read more

Staying away from the computer, however, now THAT would be ... Read more
Milestone - 20 Pounds~ Woo hoo!
Yesterday, I finally saw it. The number that means I've lost 20 pounds so far. And it's only taken me 2 years of fits and starts! That's okay - I'm motivated to use the momentum and what I've learned thus far to take off the next 20 a whole lot ... Read more
This Morning, I Amazed Myself
I have a 'long' route that I run when I'm feeling up to it. I love that route. It's a challenge, and the last time I ran it, I almost ran the whole route without walking. I also have a 'quickie challenging' route, outside of my 'have very little... Read more

Planning Out Tomorrow's Meals
Currently, I am on "vacation" with two of my 3 kids, staying with my Mom. Some may say....that doesn't sound like much of a vacation, and in some respects, some would be correct. However, I have learned that vacation is a matter of perspective. ... Read more
