Me in my sweet little midlife crisis car.

Just being happy!

I have 10 pics in my gallery



I've taken a long break from SP - did a little soul searching, tried ww for a few months and now I'm back in full swing! I've lost some weight and inches and really want to keep my momentum going. I'm glad to be back!

Hello hello!

You got a puppy? Hooray!! What kind? I second the request for pictures.

I can understand the anti-cool-phone thing. I myself am one of those horrid people always glued to the phone, but it's because I am completely spacey and forget everything otherwise. I used to carry this huge planner all the time and stick notes in it and lose them, etc. etc. Anyway.

Pounds lost are waaaay less important than shrinking! Weight is just a number, shrinking is YOU. I love taking classes but second you on the No Spinning thing. Right now I am taking a variety of pole-related classes along with kickboxing and sometimes yoga or bellydance. Lots of fun.

I hope you're having a great week. Check in soon!

Sparktastically yours,

P.S. Salmon Skin = Sea bacon. I LOVE IT.

How did your interview go? Good news, I hope? I know what you mean about finding time to Spark. It helps that I use the iPhone app, but I don't know if you have a smartphone, so that could be completely un-useful information. Meh. The thing that helps me make time is that I know that I am completely unable to accurately keep track of calories in my head, and I know I will be horrified if I try to do it the next day. Oh man, last time I had sushi, I thought I was eating really well and afterwards tracked it and it was A THOUSAND CALORIES. Oh my God. Also, I know I lose more weight when I keep track, and I have some pants I would very much like to be able to wear again, heh.

I'm in the middle of moving, which is always a big pain in the butt. But I'm so excited to be in the new place soon! The first thing I will do when all this is over will be to take a looong bath in my new 40 GALLON BATHTUB. Oh man. I am so excited.

I hope all is lovely with you!

With warmth and fondness,

P.S. A little wine never hurt anyone! Not sure about the vodka (heh), but as we've said before, life is for enjoying, right?

More blogging, please! I want to know how things are going with you! And thanks for the compliments. I am trying to keep my stress level down to preserve SOME sense of youth. Heh. So. How's you? Living life to the fullest, I expect?

Hi Michelle! Just wanted to say emoticon for getting your closet organized. Doesn't that feel great? I'm doing the inside of the upper kitchen cabinets today...a continuation of yesterday's work. It feels good to de-clutter.

Thanks also for your supportive comments and for being such a nice person! You're doing great with your fitness minutes...running swimming...the gym emoticon

Have a great weekend...enjoy emoticon
