Going ice skating some time this week
Monday, December 20, 2010      1 comments

I've been using Julia Cameron's "Artist's Way" to recapture my creativity, and one of the exercises is to list some activities you used to like but haven't done lately. I used to love, love, love ice skating. In fact one of the fondest memories ... Read more
Another day to meet the challenge
Sunday, December 19, 2010      1 comments

Oh, yeah. This is another day when I would have happily parked myself on the couch with the newspaper, warm fire in the background, and gotten up, oh, 9 hours later.... Well, not today! I've got Day 44 to get me going with "just 10 minutes." And... Read more
The 100-Day Challenge is really helping today!

Oh, boy. Day 43 and I've just realized that if I didn't have the 100-day Challenge, I would definitely be wiggling out of my exercise today. It's a crisp but cloudy winter day; we have a fire going in the fireplace; oh, it's just the perfect day... Read more

Friday, December 17, 2010      0 comments

We've been asked to detail what stress-busting change we have incorporated during this week, and although the week is only beginning, I'm ready with my answer. Following Dean Acheson's excellent advice, I'm going to stop trying to fix other peop... Read more

Day 42, and I have to re-commit! We were at a birthday party last night and the hostess wouldn't take no for an answer. I should have left the unwanted piece of cake untouched on my plate, but of course once it was in front of me, I ate it. Oh, ... Read more
Thanks to Spark People....

Thanks to Spark People and my Spark friends, I'm almost finished with my to-do list a day ahead of time! I've finished four of my tasks already and the last two---sending two packages---are all ready to go and I will have them done before noon t... Read more
Another "revelation"
Tuesday, December 14, 2010      2 comments

I had six entries on my list of things to do before Thursday. Of those, I did two right away. That was easy and provided a sense of satisfaction. Then I started to work on the others, and in the process, I had another revelation about my own sel... Read more
Meeting the challenge!
Monday, December 13, 2010      1 comments

Today is Day 38 (THANKS, TAFFI!) in my 100-Day challenge. Yesterday was a great day. I had vowed to do 20 minutes instead of my "just 10 minutes," but I got inspired and did 25 instead and then later I did another 10. Woo hoo! Today I'm going... Read more
I LOVE these questionnaires!

The Q&A, borrowed from Spark friends: Have you been naughty or nice this year? Nice, of course!!!! What do you want most for Christmas? A debt-free January! And I'm doing everything I can to get it! Do you believe in Santa Claus? ... Read more
This is getting to be a habit.
Saturday, December 11, 2010      3 comments

I've lost exact count of the # of days I've been doing my 100-day challenge, but I think that's a good thing. It's over a month and I haven't missed a single day. I'd call that an established habit! True, many of the days have been "just 10 minu... Read more
Stress-busting challenge
Friday, December 10, 2010      1 comments

I'm a recovering "stressaholic," and so I've decided to join the Stress-busting challenge. I've greatly reduced my "addiction to stress," but a little reminder will probably do me good, and then I want the badge to post on my Spark Page. The "go... Read more
Going to do it on Day 31

I've just gotten back from a whirlwind business trip, and my head is still spinning, but look at me. I'm putting down the computer and standing up. Now I'm walking over to the exercise corner. Okay, now I'm starting my exercise. It's "just 10 mi... Read more
Made it work on Day 24. High hopes for Days 25-30
Monday, November 29, 2010      3 comments

I did my "just 10 minutes" first thing this morning, and that's lucky because the rest of the day was a blur! Now I have to do several loads of laundry and make a quick trip to the store. I'm traveling again for work tomorrow through Sunday. But... Read more
Day 22 will be a good one!
Saturday, November 27, 2010      2 comments

Yesterday I was dragging my feet, but the Challenge got me through! I did "just 10 minutes" around 8 and then I did "just 10 minutes" more just before 10 o'clock. Today I'm going to try to get those 10 minutes in earlier. That leaves more time f... Read more
Thanksgiving didn't stop me!

I'm happy to report that I didn't go crazy on Thanksgiving, although I enjoyed the meal completely, and I did my requisite 10 minutes. It was 10 p.m., but I did them! Hurray!!!! ... Read more
