Quick Check In
Thursday, April 17, 2014      2 comments

Hi there Sparkers! I've been trying to detox from technology lately so I won't be as active as I was in the past. I'm hoping to log in everyday to track my fitness and check in with people, but I'm really trying to spend as much time as p... Read more

I Wish I Had a Mentor
Thursday, March 13, 2014      4 comments

I'm not one to seek out mentors or advisors (have had some really REALLY bad experiences in the past), but lately I've been feeling so lost and directionless. I have yet to find an adult that isn't trying to impose their own agenda on me. I've... Read more

Let's see how I'm doing: 1) Reach 1000 fitness points this month -- Well on my way! I've been doing a lot of furniture/heavy stuff moving so I'm glad to count that in my fitness minutes! That's hard work! It might not be in a gym or out... Read more
Angry at Interviewer

So, I live in a small town. I grew up in this town and then left and have been back for about 3.5 years. I recently applied for a job at a local college even though I had some reservations about staying in the same place. I had an interview l... Read more

Angry and Frustrated
Tuesday, February 25, 2014      3 comments

I'm generally a pretty forgiving and laid-back individual when it comes to other people. I tend to give people space to do what they need to do. I like to give others the benefit of the doubt WHENEVER possible. Today is not one of those days... Read more
Mood Tracker
Monday, February 24, 2014      1 comments

Does anyone else use the mood tracker? I've found it to be useful, but I never know if I should track my mood when I'm entering it or if I should average my day's moods into one number. I generally wake up in a good mood, but it promptly drops... Read more

So, despite my lack of motivation to go to the gym for the past 2 days, I seem to be doing something right! I've been focusing on getting my eating under control and I think that's really helping me in this process. 1 pound gone! I'm ho... Read more
Check In
Thursday, February 20, 2014      1 comments

Although I didn't go to the gym yesterday, I think it was for the best. I had to go to an event in the evening and it would have made my day too long. As it was, I went to bed later than usual and almost slept through my alarm! Today I am goi... Read more

Small Personal Victory
Thursday, February 13, 2014      3 comments

I ate really well yesterday, even though I did eat more vegan coconut "ice cream" than I was intending. My victory? Not eating the whole container! I realize that it is a small thing, but it's a big deal for me as I am (was?) incapable of sto... Read more
Checking In Plus Question for My Fellow Vegans Out There
Wednesday, February 12, 2014      1 comments

I'll start with the question! What are some good high-protein, wheat-free, soy-free, low-fat VEGAN snacks or foods? I'm really good about beans and vegetables and nuts and all that jazz, but I know when my body wants more protein. I did S... Read more

Hello Sparkers! Just checking in on my goals. I seem to be stuck in a very unmotivated pattern lately. I just don't want to go to the gym! Well, truth be told, my gym is at work and lately I can't make myself stay at work any longer than I h... Read more
