What to Do?
I'm home alone.
Not completely alone. Sammy's here with me. But my husband and my exchange son are gone. It's a little lonely and a little peaceful.
But I don't know what to do with myself. Here are my ideas:
1. Watch a ton o... Read more
On a Bender
Okay, so since I wrote my last blog, I've been eating like a maniac. I've so completely overeaten this week, I can't even believe it. How do I stop this? I don't even know. I go to bed at night saying, tomorrow will be better, and I wake up ... Read more
What Else Might I Regret Not Starting Today?
My bestie at work gave me a Rosetta Stone for my birthday. Yesterday, I tried to install it, and it wouldn't install! I spent 3.5 hours yesterday trying to figure this out, 1 and a half of which were spent with a very nice man named Vivek who ... Read more

One bottle of pop...
Two nights ago, when I was getting ready to go to bed, I suddenly realized that I had only had one soda all day. Normally, I drink anywhere from 3-6. So I tried the same thing yesterday. And I'm working on today, so we'll see, though my husba... Read more
I don't know what to write about.
I've started this blog post four times already, but everything has seemed too banal to even write down, much less subject anyone else to having to read. But, since I want my five points, I'll put down some... Read more
Distracted by Jelly Beans
For some reason, while I was sitting at Jackson Hewitt this afternoon, working on taxes, I really wanted jelly beans. So I went next door to the grocery store and got some. I didn't go out of control with them, probably ate 2 servings, and now... Read more
Failed the Talk Test
When I was at the gym, riding my bike, reading my book, I got a call. It was my sister! We talked for a few minutes, and at one point, she asked where I was. That's when I realized that I could not possibly have been working out hard enough, ... Read more
I think I've said this in my main SparkPage: I've been "working on" quitting smoking for about seven years.
One of my more recent "work on"s was with a therapist. I wish I could say "addiction specialist," but not only did I really dislik... Read more

Trying to Climb Out of a Hole and Sliding Back In
Meal planning. It's driving me insane.
I don't really know what to do. For 5% Challenge, I had decided I was going to use Spark meal plans, but then, when I tried to organize them, I realized they kind of blow. I'm sure they're good for ... Read more
5% Challenge Goal Blog
What do you want to change? Well, that's purely vanity. I want to change my shape, and be cute again. I used to be super-cute, and you know what? When I was super-cute, I didn't even realize it.
How do you want to look? Mostly thinner,... Read more
Depressed, bored, lazy, lonely
I used these adjectives today when I got upset. That's how I feel. I feel a little better now, because after I went through a crying jag, I took a six-hour nap.
Today is day 2 of yet another attempt at quitting, and I feel pretty solid, b... Read more
Prepared for gym...Please tell me to go!
I have three minutes before my lunch break is over, so I'll type fast. I have my gym clothes with me. I planned to go to the gym after work. But I'm feeling iffy about it now. Tired. Upset about two different issues that came up one after t... Read more
Blazin' Buffalo and Ranch Doritos...
...do taste as good as thin feels.
At least, I thought so before I wolfed down about six servings...
I'll make it up at the gym in the next couple days.
I'm editing to ask...it's only almost 8. Should I go back to the gym? I did... Read more
