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
Out of the Funk
I guess I am not totally out of the funk...Maybe I am. I had a good day today. And the sun set at 4:59 today, which means tomorrow, it will set at 5. Maybe even 5:01.
I went to the gym. I ate within my calorie range. We cooked up foo... Read more
I felt kind of the same way today as I did yesterday, with two big differences. One, I felt really depressed, not just tired and down, but really, really sad about Sammy. Two, I didn't drag my butt to the gym. I went to the pet store to find ... Read more
A'ight, I went.
I don't know why, but I did go to the gym. Maybe it was because there was nothing on TV. Maybe it was because my book was still in the car. Maybe it was because my ... Read more
Today was the first day I was committed to going to the gym. And I didn't go. I was excited until I was sitting in traffic. And it was dark. And it is COLD outside. I get out of work at 4pm, and if I don't leave straightaway, I get stuck in... Read more

I messed up but I'm sorry.
My girlfriend and I stopped at Einstein Brothers this morning, and a lady on the sidewalk was walking from the opposite direction and I almost hit her. =( I was really apologetic, but she was not going to hear it, so she kept yelling, even as ... Read more
