Black and White Thinking

Sunday, June 15, 2014      2 comments

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

Monday, April 21, 2014      3 comments

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!

Monday, March 24, 2014      3 comments

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

Vitality Prompt 6/Prompt 1 for the next round!

Friday, August 30, 2013      0 comments

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

Sunday, August 25, 2013      0 comments

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
