I too, have a dream
Monday, January 20, 2014      6 comments

I just realized it's MLK day. What courage, what vision this man had! If I had even a small portion of his strength and conviction.... How can I impact the world for Christ when I can't even honor Him with how I treat myself? I will choose ... Read more
Where to begin?
Tuesday, March 13, 2012      4 comments

Well, it's hard to know what to say first. During a recent check-up with my doctor, I discovered a couple of things: 1) my scale at home is waaaay off (as I suspected and really not working at all), 2) I need to stop procrastinating on the healt... Read more
A Small Reward to Myself!
Wednesday, January 04, 2012      4 comments

One of my current goals is to drink less pop and drink more water. While out running some errands today, I decided to purchase re-usable drink cup! Here at work, we have a small snack shop--so instead of choosing pop, I can get ice and cold wate... Read more
Determined to Never Stop!

On again, off again. So goes the pattern of my life. However, I am determined to never stop working towards my goal, no matter how many times I wander off the path! One thing that I do know, is God created me for more than this - there is a "be... Read more

I've been fearful of stepping on the scale.....it's kind of like, if I don't see it, it's not there....I know what denial is. How can I be in such denial about my weight? I see myself in the mirror, I see what size my clothes are, I see the thin... Read more
Today is another day
Thursday, July 07, 2011      1 comments

It seems like the harder I try, the more I feel challenged to give up. There is something about going home at the end of the day, feeling tired and defeated that I let sabotage my efforts to get healthy. I realize this is a huge barrier for me a... Read more
Quick Update
Wednesday, July 06, 2011      4 comments

I just have a few minutes this morning, but I want to honor my commitment to myself (a big part of my plan includes utilizing SparkPeople on a daily basis!). I did "good" for the day while I was at work. I was really tired when I got home and... Read more
Here I am again.....
Tuesday, July 05, 2011      3 comments

I really want to get off this "diet" rollercoaster. I commit and then give up, commit and give up....it's an ugly pattern that I am really tired of repeating. I know I'm not alone in this struggle. It's not rocket surgery (a play on words....you... Read more
De-throning the Queen of Procrastination!
Wednesday, June 08, 2011      3 comments

I don't know if "de-throning" is even a word, but I am taking a BIG step today. I have put off buying a laptop for years because I couldn't justify spending the money when there were so many other things I needed to do with the cash. HOWEVER, ov... Read more

This is a follow-up to yesterday's blog. Last night was my weekly Celebrate Recovery (CR) meeting. For those of you who don't know, CR is a Christ-centered recovery program started out at Saddleback Church by John Baker & Rick Warren (Pas... Read more

Well, in my quest to earn sparkpoints this morning, I did a web search on a place I am going in a few days--sort of a mini-road trip with my daughter to the upper peninsula of Michigan. I was rather excited to find a riding stable in the area wh... Read more
A Different Kind of Weekend
Monday, June 07, 2010      3 comments

Well, I am pleasantly surprised...I overate on Friday--went to a Mexican place with a friend--I knew I would exceed my calories for the day, but I did it by choice. I was somewhat concerned that I might be setting myself up for a weekend-long bi... Read more
How does my significant other influence my eating?
Monday, January 05, 2009      2 comments

Well, I currently don't have a "significant other" but as my self-esteem goes, so goes my eating. If I am feeling good about myself, my life, etc., I make healthier choices, take care of myself, etc. If I am in a relationship and unhappy, I use ... Read more
Struggling Today
Sunday, November 16, 2008      4 comments

Why is it that when I am feeling particularly blessed and full of love for God that I suddenly lose hope and feel overwhelming despair? I had an awesome time last night at church & afterwards with friends. I have prayed several times today, talk... Read more
Great Quotes
Tuesday, November 11, 2008      1 comments

I have come across so many great quotes and motivational comments on peoples' spark pages. I think I need to create a spot to record these. I saw one earlier today that went something like this: "I am not going to sacrifice my happiness for my a... Read more
