Friday, February 01, 2013      5 comments

LOTS, I say!!! So I'm trying to embrace this "doing the best I can" approach, and I feel pretty good about it. Suddenly, getting to 30 minutes of cardio a day doesn't seem nearly as daunting as it did even a week ago, and I am so thankful ... Read more

A Turning Point?
Wednesday, January 30, 2013      7 comments

So this morning, I read the Daily Spark story about Joyce (GATORJOY) and something clicked inside my head..so much so that I posted on facebook that "today is the day." Of course, that kind of status begs the question, for what? And when I was... Read more

The New Tree
Tuesday, January 01, 2013      5 comments

So today I begin working on my new tree. A little play on the saying, "turning over a new leaf." I'm going to build my tree one leaf at a time, and today I made some decisions about how to go about doing that. Usually, I have some grand plan,... Read more

Thursday, December 13, 2012      5 comments

Well, 12/12/12 wasn't so magical after all. I found staring down a plateful of cookies after dinner at my mom's last night, and the cookies won. Feeling a bit defeated as I'm getting the exercise in and working hard at that part, then I undo a... Read more

Doesn't today's date seem to have some kind of magic significance? I feel like it should be some kind of milestone day..not sure exactly what kind of milestone, but it just has a "feel" to it like it should be the beginning of something.. ... Read more

Day 375
Thursday, December 06, 2012      4 comments

I just read the most interesting set of posts on the "popular" message board topics: Compulsive eating vs. emotional eating. Real "food" for thought, pardon the pun. Saw a reference to a book written by Geneen Roth that I might check out, it'... Read more

Okay, so if you know me, you are saying what the heck does this title mean? Let me explain.. 373 days ago, I began a Sparkpeople spin the wheel streak that I have been completely committed to for, well, 373 days. During those 373 days, I have... Read more
