What's WRONG with Tomorrow - or Tues?
It's Sunday.... beautiful, sunny, cool, day. Here I sit after the 2 doughnut binge! It was good, believe me. I haven't enjoyed donuts for a long time and today with my coffee, it tasted OH, SO GOOD. Yum, chocolate on top, Boston cream inside. Th... Read more
Unwinding from a BUSY Weekend!
Sleepy, yes! Motivated - NO! This morning's sendoff of my husband's granddaughter and her parents was a down and up situation! I spent the weekend, cooking, ushering, chatting, and being as hospitable as a working woman can be with a 3-day week... Read more
So it's 4 am, been awake since 2 am and I really need the sleep. I have been out of sorts since coming back from Asia and I cannot seem to get this time zone thing back to my usual routine. I don't like these nights, I don't appreciate little sl... Read more
Home Sweet Home!
What a long journey, hours and hours of flying and finally home! No luggage, but home! What an awesome experience I've had over the last couple of weeks. Interesting cultural shock and talk about HEAT... you don't know heat until you've been in ... Read more

HBD to ME!
OK, ok... I'm a little overboard, but my birthday SHOULD be a national holiday. No one loves birthdays as much as I do. I'm celebrating and today's MY DAY! ... Read more
Slid Right Thru...
July 5th, minus 1 ( -1 lb) over the 4th which is nearly impossible for me. Holidays are a 'reason to eat' and always a gainer. Not this year. No heavy BBQ, mounds of potato salad, and many desserts. Instead, exercise, oatmeal breakfast and salm... Read more
Week 2 - New Trainer
I did it! Made it to my appt this morning with David, my new trainer. Interestingly enough, he's been texting me on and off all week. Keeping me focused on a new way of living... how can one forget when your phone keeps beeping messages at you??... Read more
Stretch He Says... stretch!
OK, well called a friend of mine who I knew had a training business going and asked if he knew anyone that I could call for some coaching to get back into a routine. "How about tomorrow?" this is what I heard on Monday afternoon. And uh, uh, wha... Read more
Well, after a week away on business I am starting over. Yes, I did bring workout clothes, I did have access to track food, but I DID NOT do any of it! I'm wiped out today, but happy to report that I did get my 2 mile walk in. It's a small number... Read more
Day 10: Exercise Streakin' - YES!
Well, I've committed to the exercise thing and YES, helps my mindset a bunch. So glad to get moving again. My critical self says "You only exercise, what about your diet? Are you ever going to get that in control???". BUT, my compassionate self... Read more
ON MY WAY...
... to a no excuse life. Exercise and eat right (NO DIETS). When I get at least 30 min of exercise a day in for me, life is good and I feel like I can do anything!
Support from Sparks Friends means everything to me. I'm thrilled with such ... Read more
I'm back, slowly but surely i will stay the course! I'm wondering how everyone does it - "I'm streaking", "-60lbs", exercise junkies, no carb, low carb. I've done it all multiple times, but now I struggle. Where is my motivation???
I'm re... Read more
Challenges with ME!
OK, so I pledged to wait until all the NY resolutions started to wane before I jumped back in to exercising myself. The gym was way too crowded and I just couldn't see squeezing into another class! It was so packed in those rooms, that I barely ... Read more
