Weight moving, Feeling healthier already
Finally have managed to stay healthy for about 2 weeks now, YAY! Maybe my immune system is finally on the upswing after the medical condition that has plagued me for over a year now.
In this 2-week period, I've managed to exercise nearly ev... Read more
super fast blog
Ok, the weight isn't really moving, but I've got more energy than I've had in a year. Unfortunately that meant really weird sleep last night b/c I wanted to be up taking care of things. I think I never really felt like I was asleep all night. Ha... Read more
Thanks and day 2 update
Thank every one of you who commented on my blog yesterday! Due to time constraints (aforementioned redoing schedule to include exercise and meal planning/cooking), I just can't visit each of you.
Update: Yesterday I went to the gym while m... Read more
Seriously pressed for time this week, so I'm going to dash off a blog to stay in touch. But I'll be back to my teams in a day or so!
Wanted to share an odd realization about myself. And I'm going...hmm, is it really me?

social media...is it really social?
In responding to a Sparkfriend's blog, some thoughts came up about social media and I realized how few social components are actually present in social media!
I have a son who has social challenges. I've spent a fair amount of time teachin... Read more

In the getting-myself-back-together stage of this health condition I'm still fighting, I did my first official workout. It was a mere 20 minutes on the elliptical at level 1, but hey, it's a start.
But the part I'm almost as happy to report... Read more
Absence/Abstinence makes the cravings grow stronger
I'm on a new (to me) medicine. I can't have calcium or soy for 4 hours after taking it upon rising. This means no milk in my espresso. No vegetarian sausage (I'm veg). No egg. No cheese. No english muffin. And various other things. So, it's weir... Read more
I MATTER: not gonna be a pushover anymore
What I want matters. Why do I put up with a charter home-school that no longer fits my needs, drops "change" bombs on me regularly, and doesn't let me do it my way? Why do I stay there? Because I'm ignoring MY needs as well as that of my son in ... Read more

There are some weird things going on over here in my house. The first of which is that last month began "birthday season" in our family. ... Read more
I am pretty excited because I've just proven to myself that I CAN take care of myself during stressful times. Which also means I can do it during the upcoming food-related festivities that begin with Halloween.
I've broken through a weight ... Read more
I Matter...Now to find the time
I am struggling with time, as most of my Sparkfriends know. This is an ongoing struggle for me. More than the food, more than the movement, just finding time to devote to me, my health, my pursuit of getting healthier than I am now.
It's Fa... Read more
A couple of people (on my spark page) asked about my piece of paper on my fridge where I was keeping track of my nighttime snacking. I wasn't tracking all my food b/c my meals are spot on, that part I've managed to figure out over the years, alt... Read more

I just wanted to pop by quickly to say hi to all my Sparkfriends. I haven't left spark. I'm just currently drowning in work and illness. I had to make hard decisions, and screen time ended up losing out to exercising, but sickness is battling me... Read more
