Revisiting goals

Saturday, January 31, 2015      3 comments

I'm in a funk....that's probably not the best way to describe it....more like bummed and feeling sorry for myself....maybe that's the definition of funk. It appears that my black belt test will be put off for "sometime this year" because the h... Read more

It's interesting....I've been a member of sparkpeople for awhile and I've been on teams, but until Dawn, one of my SEALS co-captains gave us a mini-challenge of visiting the pages of our fellow teammates, I don't think I ever really visited othe... Read more

And here I thought meal planning would be my most challenging bingo square....I certainly was long winded on that process. But I'm struggling with the NSV thing. It's not that there isn't good stuff going on....for example, I'm getting my water... Read more

Tuesday, January 13, 2015      8 comments

Sometimes being a leader really stinks. For example, today I challenged the Scarlet SEALS 27 team to blog about 3 goals (SMART ones mind you) that they have for the next 12 weeks. Why in the world would I do such a thing....because I have no ex... Read more
