This weekend had its set of challenges - but I survived! Saturday morning I walked 3.2 miles and hit the pool at the Y. I went to the movies and didn't have ANY popcorn! I was able to avoid it by eating dinner right before we left - so ... Read more

Being a sports fan in Michigan can be a tough gig - unless you love hockey! This Sunday is a double whammy for us. The Michigan/Michigan State basketball game in the early afternoon and the SuperBowl at night. We have friends who are havi... Read more

So much for different!!! You see I have this love hate relationship. Know people in those? The ones who stay with someone who is unhealthy because they "love" them - who draw their self worth off the other person instead of finding it wit... Read more

Things I learned the hard way this week when following that ingenious lightbulb that sometimes goes off in my head: Been hearing all that hype about barefoot running? Do not barefoot walk on the treadmill! Ouch! The bottoms of my feet we... Read more

This week I have been reminded - the scale is NOT my friend. I am a scale freak. I am obsessed with the scale. I weigh in the morning and again before I go to bed EVERY day. Of course every day I expect to see a smaller number than the day b... Read more

The last year has been filled with many side trips from the path to my destination. Funny but while on the path, I find myself looking at all those distractions along the way. I have learned that all those distractions take me further from my ... Read more

Ooooh - read that today and it hit me. Try is what I do when I am not willing to make a commitment. I say "I'll try" when I'm not ready to give a full effort. Yikes! I've been there with my healthy eating/exercise plan. Lot's of reserv... Read more

This week our area was hit with the blizzard. Personally, it was a lot of hype over something that happens every winter here in Michigan - snow. We got about 14-16 inches in a 24 hour period with lots of gusting wind causing drifting. Schools... Read more

This week has been a busy, rough week. My son Jack (who has down syndrome) spends the night every Monday. He came home, noticed the scale in the basement and promptly brought it back upstairs to the bathroom. UGH! Felt like that line from th... Read more

Sunday, January 23, 2011      0 comments

Day 4 on Spark - Day 23 of this journey I have been struggling with the scale. What began as a journey to a healthier me became a twisted obsession. The scale did not move for at least 5 days. Each day it did not move I'd become more anx... Read more
