It's funny - I know what to do. I know how I feel when I don't do it. It's not just guilt - in fact, guilt plays a very little role these days. If I eat things that don't agree with me (weightwise, healthwise, etc.) I actually end up in pain ... Read more
goals
Monday, January 24, 2011      1 comments

Today's task is to DO LESS. Make goals count and don't take on too many. This is something I struggle with every day. As someone who is part-time employed, works most days from home, and has various care-taking and similar part-time... Read more
Time for you
Sunday, January 23, 2011      4 comments

So today's task is to make time for myself. The irony is that with this crud I've been doing nothing but that. Result: I've eaten the wrong things, and I'm achy from being in the same positions too long. I think I do better, honestly, when I'... Read more
Learning something new...
Saturday, January 22, 2011      0 comments

Today's task is to learn something new. I'm still in the process of learning to SLEEP when I'm sick - you know, actually resting? Still hard for me to do. The other thing, though, that sparked me today is this blog post, shared by my frie... Read more
Visualization
Thursday, January 20, 2011      2 comments

Yesterday's work was to get a goal buddy. I have one, who's terrific, and whom I check in with each day via the site. I also have my wonderful spark teammates and teammates from a long-time e-list. I can say, if you don't have a check-in part... Read more
Calendar work
Tuesday, January 18, 2011      2 comments

So today I'm supposed to put stars or something similar on my calendar for each day I meet my goals so I can chart my progress. I've sort of done the opposite - I put a "check-in" activity on my e-calendar and removed it each day that I was suc... Read more
Motivation
Monday, January 17, 2011      2 comments

Motivation, motivation, motivation! The 31 Days program seems big on motivation. On the other hand, I guess that's what keeps us going, in the long run. Today's task is to write about my motivation - why did I choose my goals? What has inspi... Read more
Goal Setting - a new view
Sunday, January 16, 2011      4 comments

Well, I somehow lost a day of work on this, so this is a two-for-one blog day. The first task is to reflect on my goals, being halfway through January. Now, as far as Spark is concerned, these goals will be "fixed" in my consciousness within 3... Read more
Rewards
Saturday, January 15, 2011      4 comments

For today's goal work I'm supposed to write about rewards - non-food rewards - that I get for each stage of my journey. I started to think about those. At some point, I will need new clothes, but I'm more interested in "closet" shopping th... Read more
Technology Motivation
Thursday, January 13, 2011      2 comments

Today's work is on using technology for motivation. I already do that pretty well. I'm on Best Life and Real Age e-lists, I have a daily e-mail check in partner and I have two sparkteams and an e-list which I check in with daily. Additionally... Read more
Plan B
Wednesday, January 12, 2011      4 comments

Today's goal work is developing a plan B. It seems that's all I've been doing this week - I was supposed to have one lunch out and now it's 2 at the same place (I screwed up - don't wanna talk about it ... Read more
Thinking positively
Tuesday, January 11, 2011      0 comments

So today's goal is basically setting up a positive thinking list - writing down things that are positive about yourself. I'll start with a few things: I'm loyal I'm energetic I'm nurturing I'm a good teacher Can you match me... Read more
What's been right
Monday, January 10, 2011      6 comments

So the goal exercise today is to not beat yourself up about what's been wrong, but focus on what's been right. Well, I really had a good week. A really good week. I'm sure I'll have struggles along the way, but I felt good, I met my goa... Read more
That Motivation Collage
Sunday, January 09, 2011      3 comments

It's an exercise we've all done before. Or at least, those of us who've struggled with weight for long periods or much of our lives. You make the "motivational collage" and hang it where you'll see it frequently. That was today's task from th... Read more
as part of goal work...
Saturday, January 08, 2011      5 comments

I'm using the Sparkpeople January calendar on 31 Days to Unbreakable Resolutions, so here I am again - today's focus is starting a journal. This is part of a plan I'm on to keep up with 120 days of healthy habits. My 26-year-old nephew was ove... Read more
