I can't guarantee I'm going to do this everyday, but I realized that if I actually noted my thoughts about losing weight and the choices I make, and the things I do, I may recognize the patterns better than if I just try to keep them in my head.... Read more
I moved back to Virginia on the 23rd, and so far it's been okay. My husband found a job right away! He was looking in the Chicagoland area for two years and found NOTHING. He's here less than two weeks, and he already has something. I'm glad, be... Read more
So in my last blog (that was almost two weeks ago--so much for once a week blogging!), I mentioned how after I put in my notice, Drizella came to my office to ask why, and then I let loose on her and told her (almost) everything that I needed to... Read more
I put my notice in at my job today. Thank goodness, this nightmare is almost over. I talked to the big boss, and then sent an email to all relevant parties. Drizella was soon at my door asking me why. And I let it all out.
I told her there ... Read more
We are leaving soon for a dinner, and I don't think I'll have time to blog between now and midnight, otherwise, so here I am.
I have read some really, really beautiful blogs for the New Year. JOHNTJ1, THE-SHELBSTER, FEEDTHEHUNGER, ONEKIDSMO... Read more
I haven't been working very hard on my anchors, because it's easy to throw things out there into cyberspace and then forget about them. Plus, I've had quite a lot going on with really important, pressing things that I'll share once there is more... Read more
In early October, I wrote a blog about my anchors. I kept adding to the list (which started out at about 12, I think) until I had two dozen things that in some way or another "hold me down." Here is the list:
1. My student loan debt

I'm quite sure I have written this kind of thing and had these thoughts about commitment and stick-to-it-tive-ness, and how this SparkProgram I've been doing for 7 years would work if I actually DID it, rather than "doing" it. But maybe the fact... Read more
I just realized I never updated this blog: www.sparkpeople.com/mypa ge_public_journal_individu al.asp?blog_id=4218525
Probably because I forgot I had made such a blog entry. But I have a very old update! You should r... Read more
I'm copying and pasting a similar exercise from a couple years ago, but changing it up a little to recognize the changes in my lifestyle at this time (i.e., I don't really eat meat now).
Give 3 or 4 reasons and for each (reason/excuse on wh... Read more
So during the Pound-A-Thon Challenge, I decided I would weigh myself if certain conditions were met. They were that I had to stay in my calorie range and stay in my sodium range, among other things.
I didn't weigh very often.
If I stay... Read more
After over a year hiatus, I'm back on the 5% Challenge. I was very active on the challenge for a couple years, taking on leadership roles and having a blast, but never lost my 5%.
I can do this. I can lose my 5%.
The Pre-Challenge assi... Read more
I posted a blog then got all freaked out because I did it from my work computer. So I deleted it. Not that it would matter if they were monitoring it, but I don't know. Do people still do that? I figure there is too much web traffic at even the ... Read more
