Black and White Thinking
I've been setting myself back lately, because I've slipped back into my "black and white" thinking pattern. It's part of a perfectionist's personality - I only feel successful and stay on track when I'm "100% good". I can have a great day, th... Read more
Ok stress, I've had enough. You can go.
I know that stress is one of the most commonly used words these days, I know that many others are experiencing stress, and that I am no different than them. I'm usually good at juggling everything that happens in my life, but I'm going through ... Read more
Eight years on Spark?!?! Happy Sparkversary to me!
I can't believe it's been 8 years since I joined Spark. I don't even remember how I heard about it, I think it was just a random ad online that brought me in. It was 6 months before my wedding, and I was so frustrated that, although I'd been e... Read more
I fell down again. Time to get back up!
Over the past three weeks, it feels like the weight loss gods are against me. It's one thing after another! I've been struggling to keep up my healthy habits (although I am still having at least one Green Monster a day, for 4-8 fruits/veggies ... Read more
Non Scale Victories! My weight-loss pep rally!
This past week was much better than I had thought: down 3.6 lbs at my weigh in today! WOO HOO!!! When I weighed in last week, I noticed that my scale was being wonky. It gave me a different number each of the 5 times I stepped on it. Grrrr. ... Read more

Procrastinating no mo... Read more
Vitality Prompt 6/Prompt 1 for the next round!
Last journal prompt for this round!
It was a good 15 days - at first I was disappointed because I didn't lose any weight, but I realized that the challenge wasn't about losing weight for me. I had thought it would be, but it wasn't. It ... Read more
Vitality Challenge Prompts 4 & 5
Prompt 4 was a review for me. I've heard all that stuff from Lauren before, but am I practicing it in my life at this point? No. I know about goal overwhelm, about taking baby steps, and about "something is always better than nothing". I am ... Read more

Vitality Challenge Day 4
Today was somewhat more successful than I had anticipated!
I had a meeting at our corporate office today, which usually mean non-stop candy temptations (I work for a division of Mars, Inc and there is free candy EVERYWHERE). But today, w... Read more
Vitality Challenge Day 3
