I realized I have five (maybe six) things I want to do. If I spend a minimum of only five minutes a day on each item, then that's half an hour. I can schedule a half hour out of my evening...and of course, the minimum means I spend five minutes... Read more
I guess I'm "back."
Not that I was super-gone. I've logged in daily, tracked iffily, replied to blogs, etc.
But I haven't been Sparking.
Since May, I haven't been Sparking. I've barely exercised. My food sucked, then was okay,... Read more
I went to a party tonight.
It was hosted by some people who called their house the "Street-they-live-on" Brewery. We took our new exchange student, and we had to leave early, after the third time I saw him yawn.
I don't blame him for... Read more
The Worst Starfish Ever...
Okay, no, I'm so not the worst Starfish ever. You remember that one season where seriously between a third and half of us were completely inactive after the second week? What a nightmare that was!
I am the worst Starfish I've ever been, t... Read more
Dogs, Diets, and Days Off
I haven't posted a blog in a long while. I started one at one point but realized that it wasn't interesting. If it bores me, I certainly don't think it will interest you! I mean, the Challenge prep blog seemed a bit forced when I wrote it, to... Read more
Some Challenge Prep
I put my commitment and answered questions on my SparkPage, but I want to list some reasons I want to lose weight in a blog.
1. I want to move on to something else! I've been "working on" losing weight for a looooong time, and I'd like to ... Read more
Pumpkin Lady's Bad Day
I didn't do any of the stuff I said I was going to do in terms of medium-term goals. I didn't even track my food, which I always do. Around 4:00am this morning, I couldn't figure out how to not give up. I know that that... Read more
This is one of the short-term goals that was associated with my medium-term goals that I set up yesterday. I probably won't do this every day--I mean, of course I will, but probably not in a blog.
1. I opened the s... Read more
Single-Mindedness and How I Did This Week
So, my goals this week were good, but I didn't do them all like I meant to. Toward the end of the week, I did that on purpose.
My goals this week were:
Work on my Arabic for a minimum of 5 minutes per day. -- Nope. I did this twic... Read more
Just Said No
Today, I woke up and decided to be single-minded. I'm going to focus on losing weight and eating less than I burn. I made some rules for myself, wrote them down, and decided that these were the rules, and they weren't for breaking.
One of... Read more

No Prizes This Week
I'm just going to go ahead and update those goals now, instead of tomorrow, because I am going to go see a Jeopardy! taping tomorrow and am not going to do any more than I already have done.
This week, I did NOT do as well as last week, whe... Read more

I am sooo tired today! Why???
I slept through the night with only one wake-up from Little Dog. And I had 7.5 hours between bedtime and the alarm going off.
I did have a horrible, terrible dream that felt like it lasted all night. I ... Read more
