Changing my Thinking
Monday, October 03, 2016      5 comments

I know getting healthy is important. I know how important it is to get my weight down. I know how much better it makes me feel. But I still find myself resentful of exercise (which I dislike) and eating healthy (I love junk food). I love hea... Read more
Just 10 Minutes
Sunday, August 07, 2016      8 comments

So I have had a really hard time getting myself to start exercising again. I have been really slack, coming up with excuse after excuse ... Read more
Just Do It!
Sunday, June 26, 2016      5 comments

Just having a hard time getting back on track. I've regained a lot of what I had lost. Again!! I know that I am standing in my own way. I can't seem to just move out of the way. Keep getting caught up in the big picture: "Lifestyle change ... Read more
Treating Myself as I Treat Others
Saturday, October 24, 2015      6 comments

So, I was commenting on a very dear spark friend's blog this morning when I acknowledged something to myself. I don't forgive myself or support myself any where near as well as I treat others. I quickly remind others that "progress not perfect... Read more
It's Not Arthritis?
Friday, June 26, 2015      3 comments

So I have been having severe ankle/foot pain for months now. I tried everything before going to the doctor, as I didn't have insurance when the pain started. I tried over the counter pain killers, arthritis rubs/creams, an ankle brace, new sh... Read more
I am a Binger
Saturday, June 13, 2015      2 comments

I just read an article about binging and realized that is me. The article asked if you overeat large amounts of food, in a short period of time, at least once a week, every week for at least 3 months. Yes I do. I have been doing it for years.... Read more
Work Woes
Friday, May 29, 2015      1 comments

It may have been a 4 day work week but it was exhausting. I am a pre-kindergarten teacher at a child care facility and it is truly short staffed all the time. I have been teaching about 30 years now and though I work in a decent, well run c... Read more
Just Breathe
Wednesday, April 22, 2015      5 comments

So, as usual, when it rains it pours. It always seems that everything starts going crazy at once. First, since the beginning of the year, my husband and I keep having car issues. Just 1 thing after another. I know the reason is because both ... Read more
Honesty is NOT Always the Best Policy
Saturday, April 11, 2015      9 comments

At least not out loud. This is the thought I had when commenting on someone else's spark page. I don't mean we shouldn't be honest, just not necessarily out loud or even in thought. Whenever I look at myself in the mirror I would think how ... Read more
Progress Not Perfection
Friday, April 10, 2015      6 comments

So I heard this in a movie today and really like it. None of us are perfect. I stress too much sometimes and tend to focus on what I am not doing or what I could do better. I am striving to be kinder to myself. To remember that I don't have ... Read more

So, I was excited to weigh myself this morning. I thought I had a pretty good week on plan. I lost a pound. Woohoo for that lost pound. I sure don't want it back. But because of my thinking patterns, I did not embrace this loss with a po... Read more
Recommitting to a Healthy Lifestyle
Sunday, January 18, 2015      4 comments

I am writing my goals so I feel accountable: I will eat within all of my nutrition ranges on a daily basis. I will make healthy choices daily. I will eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. I will get a minimum of 10 m... Read more
AHA, Again!!
Monday, November 12, 2012      2 comments

So, I was thinking about my current lifestyle and how long it's been since I worked out. Much too long. I thought to myself, that as soon as I get my early hours back at work, off at 2:30, instead of 4:30, I can start exercising. Whoa!! Wait... Read more
Still Around
Tuesday, October 16, 2012      6 comments

I am still around though not been active online. I've been very busy with my new job and I am still loving it. Unfortunately, I have not been eating as well as I should and haven't been exercising, though I do still get in 10,000+ steps most d... Read more
Staying the Course
Thursday, September 06, 2012      6 comments

So, here I go again. I already wrote this blog earlier but before I could hit "post blog entry", windows internet explorer knocked me off and I lost the whole thing. Uuug!! Since I've been back to work I have really slacked off on my exer... Read more
