Tuesday, October 28, 2014      7 comments

I read an article today about ways to prevent getting colds and flu this season. As I read through them, nodding my head because I do each one with my new spark wellness goals it made me wonder when the last time I got sick was. 1. Slee... Read more

Wednesday, October 22, 2014      7 comments

Whatever my energy is focused on... gets stronger and more powerful. I was thinking that while writing this morning. I was deciding to focus on positive choices and it made me wonder how much the way I approach my "problems" affects how ea... Read more

Scaling back the scale

Saturday, October 18, 2014      7 comments

This week's subject for the writing diet is "Scaling back the scale". The scale and I definitely have a warped relationship. I've played the games, wearing less and only weighing first thing in the morning, delighting after being ill and lo... Read more

Today marks 5/7 good eating days in my 100 day countdown to the new year. Not bad. Funny how I thought I had not done as well. I'm happy I'm keeping a tab beside my computer. So far the only reward I have claimed has been my "date" with my sp... Read more
