This is the story of the pumpkin who believed it could so it did. Every post I write revolving around fall food mentions my love of other fall foods like apple pie and maple lattes, but guys let's be honest with ourselves - we love these things, but they can get expensive. Apple picking can … Continue reading Recipe: Pumpkin Puree
"They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself." - Andy Warhol It's been eight days. It had been 501 days. I didn't plan it, but I guess it was fate since the number was almost perfect. I didn't realize until I put the date of the last photo with … Continue reading Day 280, Quote 33: “They always say time changes things…”
No one can do this for you, but you. Whatever this is. I've said that before and I know I said it recently when I talked about the importance of advocating for yourself on my Facebook page.

Here's the blog post to pair with the video on the stages of change model. It's a bit more detailed about the initial studies that lead to the development of the model. I highlight some of the findings that DiClemente and Prochaska had even though the initial samples were small.
