Re-orienting a bit...
I've noticed a declining trend in my energy levels the last week or so. I've also noticed an increasing trend in my stress levels, and in my "less than optimal" food intake...I'm reasonably sure the three are related, so I'm thinking through ho... Read more
Sorry, ladies, I just need to vent. I am, after having had waaaay too much pizza the last two nights in a row, scrutinizing what I've been eating lately, and it has gotten really junky the last few days/week...needs to get nipped in the bud. I... Read more
remember that winter I was insanely in shape?
yeah, it's not this winter. It was a couple years ago, actually. For once I came out of winter in better shape than when it started, and I think a big part of that was getting my butt to the gym for a VARIETY of activities on a REGULAR basis. ... Read more
Tired of Invisible Scripts...
I caught myself doing something really stupid recently, thanks to an invisible script I've somehow developed of late...
So, this is generally how my commute home has gone, for the last several months: I pack up my crap, throw on my coat, he... Read more
yep, I went there.
So what do you do when you realize that it's January 2nd and you forgot to order the 2013 diary refill for your planner? Well, momentary panic aside, you order them, right? But what if they're out of stock (and the projected shipping date is t... Read more
Wash, rinse, repeat!
And I'm back from vacation! Must have been a good one, since I couldn't remember any of my login info at work this morning! Ha! But seriously, it was a nice vaca...got out into the mountains a bit, did some hunting, saw family, played a LOT o... Read more
now where'd I hide that reset button...
So I have not been making the progress I'd like lately in the weight loss arena...eating a bit carelessly, exercising a bit too little/lightly will do that, I suppose.
I'm heading home to visit family for a couple weeks, so I'm hoping I c... Read more
Habit Farming: n. The process of growing a habit.
Yup, see what I did there? I just coined a phrase. It will be big, I tell you. Buy stock now.
Anyhow. I have been sleeping in a lot lately. My work schedule facilitates this...I... Read more
Hmmmm. So it's been like a month since I blogged last...oops! I'm still around, but it's been a busy month, so no bloggy, and relatively little other Spark action, either.
I can't decide if it's been a good month, though, or not-so-good... Read more
My own little pity party...
To sum up yesterday in a single sentence: It's my pity party, I'll binge if I want to.
Ugh. So a couple days of stupidly hiking in flip flops left me with a giant painful blister on the ball of each foot. It was fun to go impromptu hiking... Read more
Systems v. Goals?
So there's a personal finance-type blog that I have a love/hate relationship with (I love some of his advice, but hate hate hate his tone at times!). Anyhow, one of the things he repeats a LOT is this Scott Adams (yes, the guy who draws Dilbert... Read more
Skinny Rules Review
A couple folks mentioned they were interested in this book, and I finally finished reading it, so I thought I'd do a little book report! For the record, I still hate the title, but I did end up liking the book for the most part (which surprised ... Read more
I was reading a book (The Skinny Rules) today, and ruminating. The book was talking about "cheat meals" and how they should be just one meal and still regular portion sizes, should be all planned out in advance, how they should be "treats" but ... Read more
To keep the Y membership, or to ditch the Y membership, that's the question! I have a list of pros/cons, but I still can't decide...
Reasons to cancel:
--I haven't been to the Y in almost a solid month, and lately I've been in a cycle w... Read more
long time no bloggy!
Well, I'm back from a mini-vacation (Wisconsin Dells...midwestern water park capital of the world!)...had a grand time, got not-too-horribly sunburnt (considering my pasty hide, I did very well!), and didn't gain too much, and I'm not too exhaus... Read more
