It's been 4yrs since my last SP blog post. Then again, I also took a break from SP for a few years too (only just coming back to it in Dec 2016). <BR> Fingers crossed!! Sun, 2 Apr 2017 10:50:36 EST Malware on SP?! Say what?! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5237172 Got my 25 points and went to spin the bonus wheel when Chrome gave me this lovely note. I sent SP a message to find out what's going on. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/8/8/l88637152.jpg"> Mon, 4 Feb 2013 12:59:42 EST Getting it done "old school" http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5235756 Bringing back the Victory Garden in our back yard! :) <BR> <BR> Ok, so we're renters and I can't go digging up the entire back yard. BUT, I can get my garden growing in containers that I can then take with us when we move. And, in the spirit of Victory Gardens we aren't going out and buying posh containers. I'm heading over to the Habitat for Humanity store and seeing what old doors and things I can get to build our own. <BR> <BR> Once we move into a new place (hopefully before the hig... Sun, 3 Feb 2013 13:36:20 EST Bad day yesterday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5221785 Bad day yesterday - emotionally. It marked a year since my sister in law went into the hospital. She didnt make it. Still too many emotions swirling around, so I just posted the link for my non-SP blog. I did end up having the chocolate cake after dinner. But I was still under the 1,200 cal minimum for my diet. Whoops. <BR> <BR> <link>mydamnthyroid.blogspot.com/2013/01/f<BR>orcing-myself-not-to-emotional-eat-now<BR>.html </link> Thu, 24 Jan 2013 14:28:52 EST Pissed, beyond pissed off! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5208085 I have an appointment today at 10:30. One of those "You CANNOT be late to" appointments. We decide that hubby would take the van to work and I would take his car since I have a farther distance to go and his car is in better condition. <BR> <BR> I go outside to make sure that the car seat is all set up when I realize the key isn't fitting in the door. I look down and I have MY keys in my hand! OMMFG! I'm ALREADY stressed out about having to go to this appointment and NOW he forgot to ... Tue, 15 Jan 2013 09:49:25 EST Make room for dessert! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5205648 Booyah! 1st official day back and I've got 101 - 451 calories remaining for the day! MMMmmm, decisions decisions! I'm thinking maybe some cottage cheese with pineapple .. ooooooooo Sun, 13 Jan 2013 20:37:34 EST I'm baaaaaaaaaaaack! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5205208 Ok .. so after a year and change of being away from Spark, I gained 21lbs. Yikes! I also started a thyroid med because it turns out that even with diet and exercise (off Spark) I was gaining weight. I started my meds on the 7th and as of today with the pills and exercise I've lost 4lbs. Makes me feel groovy :) <BR> <BR> I'm back and DETERMINED to be healthy! Sun, 13 Jan 2013 15:18:34 EST Still the same http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4500017 Still the same weight as last Friday,which was only 1lb lighter than the week before. I went completely off the diet last week, so the up side was that I didnt gain any. I've been trying to keep my hand busy knitting and crochetting to keep my hands off the junk food. Some times it works, some times it doesn't. Trying to stock pile for the craft fair in November (though I havent bought my 10x10 space yet). I need to do SOMETHING otherwise I think I'll fall apart. Stress has been high. ... Fri, 23 Sep 2011 11:15:29 EST Mysterious Missing Box http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4469293 My husband was off Sunday and Monday. Since the little guy had such a rough teething night Saturday night, we didnt get much done around the house on Sunday. But Monday we REALLY got a lot done! <BR> <BR> Sure, there is still some stuff in boxes, but no box went unopened! We consolidated, threw out, and moved stuff up to the attic. We sorted - throw out, donate, yard sale, keep. Sounds great .. except that there was one box unaccounted for - a box of finished crafts. All I had to do... Tue, 6 Sep 2011 11:34:33 EST SOOOOO thrown off today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4465924 The wee one barely slept last night (teething hard core!). At 2am my awesome husband go out of bed and told me to go to sleep. He brought the munchkin into the living room but every time he's start to cry I'd wake up. So, I got 3.5hrs of broken sleep . which is actually 30 mins more than I got the night before. At 5.30-ish we dosed him with tylenol and more night time orajel, put him in the tub (as a fun splashy time distraction), dried and diapered and the "changing of the guard was comp... Sun, 4 Sep 2011 15:03:20 EST It's Friday again .. another step on the scale http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4462468 8/19: 193 (first weigh in) <BR> 8/26: 187 <BR> <BR> 9/2: 181 Whoop Whoop!! <BR> <BR> I though maybe a pound or two, but thats another 6 down! This time instead of doing the dance of joy I got off the scale then go back on. Still 181. I got off the scale, picked it up to inspect it, put it back down in a different spot and got back on. 181! Wooooooooooooooooooohooooooooooooo! <BR> <BR> PS - Hey Raina! You Rock! Fri, 2 Sep 2011 11:28:23 EST One of the hardest days of the year http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4452906 Today is always a hard one. More so this year. Having a hard time not reaching for the snickers bar or icecream. I posted it on my faceook. Can't bring myself to retype it here without getting the lump in my throat so I'll copy/paste. <BR> <BR> [reposted from fb] <BR> <BR> Dear Nana, <BR> <BR> I can't believe it's been 20 years since you died. Some times it seems like only yesterday. Some times it feels like forever ago. I think about you everyday and miss you terribly! And I'm stil... Sun, 28 Aug 2011 14:41:36 EST 1 week weigh-in http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4450171 “We so happy, we do the dance of joy!” <BR> <BR> Starting weight: 193 <BR> Weight today: 187 <BR> <BR> Yeah .. I really did do a little dance when I got off the scale! I knew that my shorts fit a little different but WOW! I can’t wait to lose more weight! <BR> Fri, 26 Aug 2011 18:37:02 EST Subway - Eat Fresh! But not all that healthy! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4448531 Suffice it to say I was REALLY shocked when I got home from picking up Subway for the husband and I tonight. We dont generally get take out but it was just the 2 of us, he had a couple of dollars, and I've been doing so well he thought a night off from cooking would be a nice change for me. And like he said "How unhealthy could it really be if the only bad thing on my sandwich is the mayo?" <BR> <BR> My sandwiches are ALWAYS no mayo! Even way before Spark, way before my skinny jeans days,... Thu, 25 Aug 2011 20:40:16 EST 1st day back to school http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4442036 Today is the kids’ first day back to school. It’s been slow going as far as the home schooling goes (one 1 is home schooled). Stress level has been a bit higher than I had hoped. Hopefully things will work out smoothly when I go to pick the non-homeschooler up from the bus stop. Yeah .. it’s far enough that it’s too far to walk. But that’s what happens when you live in a place where they don’t have school busses (unless the kids live an hour away from the school) and the public transport... Mon, 22 Aug 2011 14:30:34 EST Day One - Crashed into a wall http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4437341 I started out BRILLIANT today! Then I hit the wall. I grabbed the bag of potato chips. I could have chosen a healthier snack. But the loud obnoxious crunch of kettle chips won the day because I needed something to nash my teeth in. Stress won out and I grabbed the chips. As bad as that sounds, it's healthier than my old stress relief vice of going outside for a cigg. There's always tomorrow and I'm not going to harp on myself for having the chips ... positive vibes only! Fri, 19 Aug 2011 19:49:03 EST
