I am so lucky.
My honey is a chef. A very good chef. And lucky for me, he likes to cook at home.
His birthday was yesterday - we spent Sunday and yesterday celebrating with some really delicious food. Sunday night was striped bass (YUM), cauliflower soup,... Read more
No more Spark Guilt!
I just read a Spark Buddy's blog about goals; one of those goals was to stay active on Spark. This goal got me thinking about my own activity on SparkPeople. Toward the end of 2009, instead of seeing Spark as an essential tool to getting health... Read more
Day 2 - New Plan
Today I got that wonderful phone call - "We have a two hour delay today." I don't like snow days so much, we have to make them up in June. But delays? Give me a delay anytime. Wahoo!
Here's how Day 2 went.
- Woke up at 5:00, got a ton of ... Read more
Day 1 - New Plan
Last night was my first night of evening gym time in quite a while.
I wasn't thinking about what I had to do at work while I was at the gym
It wasn't 6:00am
Got to see a different crowd
When I got home I could relax and have a ... Read more
Rethinking the plan of attack
This morning I was all ready to go to Spin class... had my gym gear on, had the car warming up... got in my car and it had trouble getting up the hill in the snow (just flurries, but they were those slippery flurries). My spin class runs until ... Read more
Seriously? Lamb and all?
So today was the day I decided to try my little experiment - no walnuts on my salad, a mix of milk and water with my hot cereal, less hot cereal...
Honey calls and says he doesn't have to work tonight. He decided to make the lamb tonight. O... Read more
Today's *real* blog.
I have been doing this long enough to know that sometimes I have to take a good look at my calories, fitness, and other goals to see where I can improve. I *know* this, but that doesn't mean I've done it recently. Today I entered all my food -... Read more

Today was a good day!
I kind of counted today and yesterday as New Year's Day. Last year I read a saying on Jan 1st - "What you do on New Year's Day, you'll do the rest of the year." Since the gym wasn't open yesterday, I wanted to count today as my Gym New Year's ... Read more
One Spark Year Later...
Holy Moly! A whole year on Spark! To celebrate, I went out and bought the book The Spark today. It's the least I could do to support this great, free, website!
Did I meet my goals for today? (Didn't post them yesterday, but I did some grea... Read more
2010 - The Year of Happiness
I just wrote in my journal, something I haven't done since September. I was in the mood to reflect (I think that the impending new year does that to me) on a few things. One of my big goals for tonight was to come up with some New Year's Resol... Read more
Winding down 2009
There are still a couple days left of this year, but I am in a reflecting mood. This year has been such a wonderful year, and I'm pretty sure I owe a lot of it to Spark People.
This year I turned 30 - the first time I really thought about tur... Read more
Some days just feel so wonderful. Got a ton of stuff done today - phone calls made, appointments scheduled, prescriptions dropped off, Christmas stuff put away, swimming session, healthy eating... wahoo! I have some cornbread in the oven right... Read more
Back away from the cheese.
Christmas was really nice. Spent the Eve with my mom, my brother and my aunt and uncle. Had too much brie and too much wine, but we had a really nice night. Santa brought me a new stock pot! Wahoo! Christmas Day was spent at my fiance's par... Read more
