Piggy Day
Wednesday, November 21, 2012      6 comments

Today was like a practice for Thanksgiving. I ate too much. I worked out for 22 minutes, but it wasn't terribly strenuous. I also did practice my Zaatar bread recipe. I didn't mean for it to be practice, but since it turned out di... Read more
Lazy Day
Sunday, November 18, 2012      4 comments

I don't feel like taking the little dog to get his nails done. I feel so lazy. Anyway, he's sleeping, too. I hopped on the bike and watched "Breaking Amish." It was a pretty boring show, and after suffering through that, I didn't want to wa... Read more
Decent Day

I got a workout in today, and I ate within my calorie range. Overall, it was a productive day. I was extra-efficient with my work, clipped some coupons, and we spent time cleaning up the yard. We are soooo lazy; some branches fell during Hu... Read more
How to Reward a Kid

I have a 16-year-old exchange student living with me. His report card came today, and he got "second honors," in spite of getting a D in his Bible class. The Bible class was actually a coup in itself, because he was failing and brought it up aft... Read more
Maybe Not That Big a Deal, but I'm Still Beside Myself

Yesterday was my birthday. I turned 30. My driver's license expired. Last week, I filled out the form to renew online and printed out the temporary license. This morning, I saw it as I was walking out the door and figured that even though I... Read more
Aiming for Perfection
Saturday, October 06, 2012      8 comments

They say you shouldn't do that. They say that you're setting yourself up for failure, for giving up, for disappointment. I've already failed, I'm ready to give up, and I'm already disappointed. Clearly, my haphazard, unsystematic ... Read more

Here is my prompt: Give 3 or 4 reasons and for each (reason/excuse on why my diets and exercise plans have not been well-executed in the past) write a strategy that will keep me on track for 8 weeks. I really like this assignment. It i... Read more
5% Challenge Assignment #3
Thursday, September 20, 2012      6 comments

I've kept the same answers to the third assignment on my SparkPage for a looooong time. It's time to update. Not only was I so inspired by my Larve-cum-Adult Starfishie Dragonfly, but I mean, it's just TIME. I haven't thought about these answ... Read more
Five Minutes...
Wednesday, September 19, 2012      7 comments

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...
Saturday, August 11, 2012      15 comments

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
Saturday, May 19, 2012      14 comments

Yesterday sucked. 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
