Saturday, January 04, 2014      17 comments

So, the BLC is set to start again on the 15th. The doors will "open" some time around the 8th/9th and rampant enthusiasm will once more abound. I've been spending time on the "newbie threads" so I've already been soaking up that pre-round ... Read more

Gratitude - the best way to turn around attitude
Thursday, December 26, 2013      14 comments

Not to sound like a broken record, but seriously - this is AWESOME. I lost 20 lbs. between the registration period and the actual challenge - so 16 weeks, but for me that's an INCREDIBLE loss - I gained such perseverance and developed great... Read more

Excuses!
Sunday, July 28, 2013      5 comments

Today's spark coach challenge is writing about excuses. Two excuses that have sabotaged my weight loss in the past are: 1. My rheumatological condition is making me hurt too much to do my exercise. 2. Going "off program" one day and not ... Read more
Goals, goals, goals, goals, goals, goals, goals
Friday, July 19, 2013      10 comments

So today my "challenge" from spark coach is to share my goals with "someone". Now, I've done this before. Will do this again. Will do this the rest of my life, probably. Because my goals keep changing. Goals, for me, may be the most pow... Read more

A Scale Ain't Nothing But a Number
Monday, June 24, 2013      11 comments

So, finally I'm humming along in my health plan. Getting good exercise (better and better each week - thanks BLC and less painful knees!), eating the right things, drinking my water, banishing bad habits and filling my life with good ones. And... Read more
More on balance
Saturday, June 22, 2013      6 comments

Is it just me, or do those of us with balance issues with food have balance issues with other things in life? So now I'm in a good groove with both diet and exercise, but my LIFE balance is way off. I can ALWAYS find things I "need" to... Read more
