  • Sunday in the Desert

    11/10/2019 4:13:10 PM, by GGRSPARK

    It is day 7, a full week and we are happy to be here but a post got me thinking. It is so darned hot, I cannot imagine what summer must be like here in the Valley. I could do better I suppose and hide away all day while temps sizzle mid 90. Yesterday after wandering the Street Fair and seeking shad... Read more

  • Turnaround

    11/10/2019 7:34:45 AM, by WALKIN4JEANIE

    I had a bit of a slow down in September and couldn't seem to get my act together. I was so busy and stressed that I let my good habits fall by the wayside. Before I knew it, I had gained 5 pounds! I took a step back and realized that I had not been consistently tracking. So my first goal was t... Read more

  • I Choose!

    11/10/2019 6:38:05 AM, by JSTETSER

    Today I choose what will help me most. I'm going for a hike today. I could sew or go to church, but I choose to move my body. Soon the weather will turn icy and very cold, and I will be inside. I need these days of outside exercise! I choose to eat low carb and low sugar. There are poor... Read more

  • 8 - Compulsive Eating (Overeaters Anonymous)

    11/10/2019 5:10:27 AM, by MAKEITWORKIT

    Well this is a different kind of change - I've been a member of Overeaters Anonymous in the past but find it doesn't sit well with my Christian faith. I like some of the 12 steps - they are helpful for me. For instance Step 1 - We admitted we were powerless over food — that our lives had beco... Read more

  • "Sow a thought, reap an action..." Steven Covey

    11/10/2019 1:20:08 AM, by JENJENN7

    Today I was listening to a speaker talk about the following quote by Steven Covey: “Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny.” Powerful. I am sowing thoughts that will reap actions. I am sowing actions that will reap... Read more

    11/9/2019 4:18:47 PM, by GGRSPARK

    The heat has not been easy for me so far. Today was particularly hard because we went to the Street Fair. The object was to move around as much as possible and not be indoors. Off we went properly slathered with sunscreen and wearing ball caps. Mine does not fit well. Did my head get bigger ? At T... Read more

    Firstly, thank you to everyone who wished me a capital A day today. If ever there was a day I needed it, it was today as I have weighed in very high for me, and I am quite frustrated about it. I now have breakfast and lunch fairly under control. Also, I managed to get my 4-6pm snacking under co... Read more
