I just haven't had time for spark for the last 10 years. Oops, I meant 10 days. My kids were here for 5 days which was a wonderful visit, and I cooked before and during their time here. And ate and ate. They left and I cooked some more for a po... Read more
It All Begins With Breakfast
Monday, October 20, 2014      8 comments

Last week was difficult for me and I gained 2 pounds as a result. Actually, I was relieved it wasn't more than 2. There were challenges in both eating and exercise that I didn't meet well. Yesterday morning, I woke and looked at the clock. ... Read more
Ups and Downs
Thursday, October 16, 2014      4 comments

It's been 8 days since I blogged and my exercising and eating have been on their own roller coasters. I have been slacking off on my exercise due to being busy and just feeling tired of everything. My eating was fine until Tuesday and I had l... Read more
Some Days Are Just Not As Happy As Others
Wednesday, October 08, 2014      9 comments

The final order of bulbs and rhizomes arrived two days ago and today was the best day weather-wise to dig them into the garden. Fine. But I had to stop after 2 hours because I had to go get my flu shot and I wasn't anywhere near finished plantin... Read more

I had a great meeting and get-together yesterday and today, and now I am back home. One of the best parts of the trip was that I excelled at my spark program! This is really new territory for me which makes me rather excited. Because you we... Read more
Another good week

I lost 1.25 lbs. this morning and I was very happy about that. Even if I had lost less or nothing, I would keep on doing what I'm doing because I know it is the best thing for me. I am having a lot of success with turning away from food. I ... Read more
Today is a better day...

Thanks, to all who left comments on yesterday's blog, and ACCEPTHECHLNGE was absolutely right: the scale did surprise me with a 1.75 lb. loss, which made me feel much better. After all, I had really kept to my program very well, this past week. ... Read more
I didn't feel like blogging ...
Friday, September 26, 2014      6 comments

That told me I have to do some blogging because the reason I don't want to is that I've had a frustrating day. It was a day when nothing was terrible, but a lot of annoying things happened, such as spending hours on a website which I couldn't se... Read more

Today was my son's 28th birthday. My son lives in New York City and I am in Vermont, so I told my husband we needed to go out to dinner here, to celebrate the day for all of us. So we did, and I was able to easily stay on my new eating program. ... Read more
Is What I Am Eating For Fuel or For A Flavor Experience?
Tuesday, September 23, 2014      3 comments

All I can say is yes. I eat for fuel and ohhhhh, for those flavor experiences. But I do know what is meant by the question being asked, and I know for me it means high-quality, nutrient-dense food and, when I am only going for the flavor, take j... Read more
The Lemon Curd
Sunday, September 21, 2014      6 comments

I had another good day at the church brunch after the service -- I evaluated carefully what I would limit myself to, and then stuck with it. I sat down next to a dear friend who I knew had made the lemon curd on the buffet table next to a dark-l... Read more

I lost 5 pounds this week and I am very happy! Today I want to explain about my process of desensitization, as I wasn't very clear in yesterday's blog post: I had thought of donating the gluten-free item to the food pantry, but I realized ... Read more
I CAN do it!
Friday, September 19, 2014      6 comments

Today I know that "I can do it!!!" It's a helpful phrase but my main mantra is longer and that gives me more time to remind myself of what I'm doing and choose to say no... Many times each day I walk through my kitchen and I see a box mix o... Read more
Protecting My New-Found Eating Program
Thursday, September 18, 2014      8 comments

Today is all about protecting my eating program. The main problems I find are the disparaging remarks by other people. Most of them do not mean to be nasty, but I can have my resolve deflated very easily. They may say things such as: "you just h... Read more
New Day, New Plan, New Me
Wednesday, September 17, 2014      7 comments

I'm on Day 5 of my new eating program and enjoying it enormously. I'm feeling so great about my eating that I am a whole new person. So, I went out and got myself a brand-new haircut! Today's lesson is to use a notebook to write down all ma... Read more
