My scale is a fickle pickle
Thursday, July 17, 2014     

The only scales I like are the ones I play on my guitar! Yesterday, I weighed myself first thing in the morning as usual. The scale showed me as losing 3lbs since I began this journey 3 weeks ago. I was feelin' fiiiine! This morning, a mere... Read more

Not so great

Victory over the desk and other ramblings
Saturday, July 12, 2014     

Today's SparkCoach goal is to eat one meatless meal. Fortunately for me, this is a gimme. Growing up in a less than affluent Italian home, we ate pasta, salads and beans on a regular basis. Steaks were grilled after Mass Saturday evening. (ty... Read more

Desk challenge - Day 2
Wednesday, July 02, 2014     

Being a woman of my word, I promised a follow-up to yesterday's post on the mindless desk matter. This morning I packed a very yummy lunch, in a fabulous 'Hello Kitty' lunch bag (must grow up...must grow up,,,) and upon arriving at my desk, pro... Read more
Get up from that confounded desk, will ya?!?
Tuesday, July 01, 2014     

Do not eat in front of the computer. That was one of those quick goals I chose when I joined. I never knew this would be such a difficult task. I was unaware of how little attention I gave my snacks and lunch. When I consciously attempted to ste... Read more
