Oh, almonds, you beat me.
Well yesterday's eating didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped. One of the second grade girls delivered her Girl Scout chocolate-covered almonds, and while I was initially really good, only having six almonds, it turned into at least twice that. ... Read more
I wish this rain was snow!
So for quite a while, over the summer and the fall, I didn't really have any fitness-related events to look forward to. I think this might be part of the reason I gained back some weight. No 5ks to run, no gym challenges to train for... so my ... Read more
Sigh... I think I really need to make a list of non-scale victories. I got on the scale this morning, and it made me a little sad.
So here goes:
- Even though I put on a few pounds, I am feeling better about myself. I bought some fun ... Read more
It's that time again...
Slowly (VERY SLOWLY) but surely, the scale went down in November. I've been moving at a snail's pace of .2 pounds a week. But I'll take it.
Good things in November!
- Gym time has been much more consistent.
- Nutrition has been spot-o... Read more
Well, our trip into the city was kind of a bust. I'm not going to get into it too much, but suffice it to say that we walked SOOOOO much and didn't actually *do* much of anything. Sigh... I am upset with myself that I wasn't more assertive whe... Read more
The world is my oyster
I just love that saying. It has nothing to do with my blog, I just love saying it.
Did you ever get that feeling that you just want to spend some time alone? I mean, I love love love my husband and I love spending time with him. I love m... Read more

Time flies when you're gaining weight...
Time has a funny way of working... the months just fly by when I'm engaging in unhealthy habits, and the days slog by when I'm working on healthy ones!
What I mean is that I recently got back into eating healthy, since Brad is not working r... Read more
Quick one at school
Lots of good stuff!
- Eating has been really really good. Fewer carbs, more paying attention to what I'm eating, and I feel much better.
- Water drinking has been improving steadily. While I'm still not quite up to my four Siggs a day, ... Read more
It's a great day!
So the bad news is that I really haven't been that active on Spark lately. I miss catching up with everybody and I feel like I'm out of the loop on here!
The good news is that my honey is taking care of me - we are eating really well, limi... Read more

Do you remember that t-shirt that Puffy wore one year?
I am beat! I just got home from Power Yoga. The instructor was not the usual one, so the class was much different this week! There were SO MANY challenging parts to this class. Th... Read more
This past weekend I went to a wedding with a friend. We stayed at a hotel (the wedding was about an hour and a half away) - it was like a mini-vacation for us.
So anyway, hotel-staying means going out to eat. And so we did. Friday nigh... Read more
Oh what a beautiful morning...
Earlier this morning I wrote a blog about how darn early 5am is! Phew!
But I couldn't post it.
I'm back from my swim - I did 30 minutes. I had been doing 20 minute swims for a while, but I decided to up the time. Ten minutes more ... Read more
My biggest excuse (hahah - *biggest*, and I am busting out of my pants) as of late was that Brad was working all the time and it didn't matter if all I ate was Popeye's and Chinese take-out. Well, that excuse doesn't hold water in November. Br... Read more
So it's the end of the month. In October I acknowledged that I gained some weight and stopped blaming it on my clothes shrinking. I also got my honey back - he's not working right now, and it's wonderful. He's taking care of me, taking care o... Read more
