Start Your Engines

Monday, January 12, 2015      2 comments

Picture an old car in the winter: the engine sputters, dies, sputters again, rolls over, starts...but then stops again. That's me. But today, the engine started. I joined an old car club with similar vehicles, and we're committed to refi... Read more

Confession: Last night my husband said, tentatively, "Uh...when you get closer to black belt testing, you should probably...not eat chips like that. I mean, should try more fruits and vegetables, you know? For your test?" In a fu... Read more

Tomorrow is the Dreaded 4th Day

Tuesday, October 21, 2014      2 comments

A co-worker and I just figured out that 1) We are both secret binge-eaters. 2) When we start a plan, we are both really good for the first three days. Then we blow it on Day 4. Well, tomorrow is my Day 4. I'm gritting my teeth alread... Read more

Back to Solutions

Sunday, October 19, 2014      5 comments

I found myself recommending The Spark Solution to a co-worker, especially since I lost about six pounds in two weeks when I did it. Then I thought, Hmmm...Perhaps I should be doing this again. So today was the first day! I've grocery ... Read more

Intervention Day 8: One Step Back

Monday, September 08, 2014      2 comments

I did okay...until I got home from work at 5:00. Hungry. Facing down a pan full of brownies. Hungry. Italian bread on the counter. I couldn't stop from eating two helpings of each. Then I gave up and ate half of a Tombstone pizza before I g... Read more

Intervention Continues

I've had to detach myself from...myself. Sounds weird, doesn't it? Yet I' ve to treat myself like a whiny toddler: "I want snacks!" "No. You're not getting any snacks before dinner." "But I'm hungry!" "Good. Then you'll ... Read more

Intervention for My Last Few Months

Tuesday, September 02, 2014      6 comments

I updated my Spark page. That says it all. I weigh more today than I have in 4 years. This is, frankly, inexcusable. There is no excuse. I do not have a medical problem. I am not an overstressed single parent working two jobs. I am no... Read more

I Think I've Got This!

Wednesday, July 09, 2014      6 comments

Okay, I was initially going to call today a "fail" for the following reasons: 1. I did not work out this afternoon/evening. 2. I did not use meals from The Spark Solution for lunch or dinner. So this is why tracking is important. I w... Read more

Yesterday's Over...Move On

Sunday, July 06, 2014      4 comments

Sure enough, yesterday was rough. I did not record anything in the nutrition tracker aside from breakfast and I don't plan to. Must simply move on. Schedule: Take family to Bristol Renaissance Faire, stop at Culver's for a late lunch, atten... Read more

Day 2 -- I'm on a roll. Yeah, it's a short roll from yesterday to today, but I'm hoping it will continue to snowball. (Mixed metaphors -- I must be tired.) Today's Highlights: My daughter and I rode our bikes on a 4-mile round tri... Read more

Happy July!

I am back in the proverbial saddle. Hallelujah! Let me sum up my day: Victories: 1. Did not eat the cinnamon rolls that I made the kiddos for breakfast. Just had one bite to satisfy the craving and then moved on. 2. Read Day 1 of The Sp... Read more

Day 5

Wednesday, April 30, 2014      2 comments

Good day. Ate well and stayed within ranges. Took a Rest Day from exercise but purposely walked down my hilly street and back (twice) to get those sore muscles working. I had a personal day from work, and I spent the afternoon cle... Read more
