Re-orienting a bit...

Monday, April 01, 2013      3 comments

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

March update

Wednesday, March 06, 2013      3 comments

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?

Monday, February 04, 2013      0 comments

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...

Thursday, January 10, 2013      4 comments

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!

Tuesday, November 20, 2012      3 comments

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...

Wednesday, November 07, 2012      2 comments

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

Thursday, October 18, 2012      6 comments

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

Indecisive

Wednesday, October 17, 2012      2 comments

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...

Monday, September 17, 2012      4 comments

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?

Thursday, September 06, 2012      4 comments

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

Tuesday, September 04, 2012      5 comments

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

Redefining "Treats"

Monday, August 27, 2012      5 comments

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

contemplation...

Friday, August 24, 2012      3 comments

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!

Tuesday, August 21, 2012      2 comments

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
