I was asked this evening by my nearly 15 year old daughter what I wanted for breakfast tomorrow morning (since my kids learned to pour a bowl of cereal with milk and operate the toaster this has been a tradition for both Mother's and Father's da... Read more
I was having a conversation with the hubster on MSN (yes we are dorky that way and rather than actually speaking we IM each other), and I just realized that something "clicked" into place for me when I started my weight loss this time.
I ha... Read more
Who'd have thought that I would actually want to look in the mirror? When I was a teenager I looked in the mirror to do my hair and make sure I looked presentable but never really admired myself in the mirror. I know many of my friends who spe... Read more
I have been on SP for 10 months now and it has taught me how to eat better, how to enjoy exercise and slowly how to get my family involved in the fitness regime as well. I have reached my goal weight and am now learning how to maintain it and t... Read more
Today I was a little sad when I woke up and looked at the date. Today would have been my maternal Grandma's 90th birthday, saddly though she passed away 8 years ago (May 15, 2002). While we had our ups and downs and family fights (she didn't l... Read more
Well it's been a week of changes at work, my manager left to go to a bigger branch and the guy I've been working with for 3.5 years has been moved up to the manager position (on a 3 month trial we'll see how it goes). This will be manager numbe... Read more
I just got a massive reality check today looking through the local paper. Someone I went to school with died "suddenly" last month (although the obituary wasn't put in the paper until now) and that scares the hell out of me for some reason. I ... Read more
My friends Pruplebear and Casusk have posted similar dorky posts. So let me show you my world of dorkiness (this may be a continuing series of posts).
First off I have been reading since I was 4. My favourite authors have included Richard... Read more
I don't really know why I am writing this but I just wanted to throw it out there and get other opinions on whether I'm being too sensative over this.
My main job is to pick customers up from home, work or the shops around town and bring th... Read more
Ok so I seem to be turning into a quiz junkie but hey they are giving me lots to think about. Today I did the Fitness Personality Profiler (here is the link: www.sparkpeople.com/mysp ark/fitness_profile.asp ).

Today I took a personality quiz thing here at SP just to see what it would say. It was the Diet Personality Profiler and I was somewhat surprised by the results because I thought I'd overcome a lot of the discriptions.
Here is the link: ... Read more
Yes I know we just entered spring but I passed an idea by my oldest daughter (she'll be 15 in a few months) about staying in shape together over the summer. I asked if she'd help me out by being my "running buddy" and show me the "stop sign" ru... Read more
I have now made it to the maintain it phase of my journey and I am finding it quite a struggle to keep my weight constant. I know it's only been a couple of weeks but I really thought it would be easier than it is turning out to be.

I really don't understand how DST makes things better. I don't find the amount of "extra" daylight to be all that helpful. It is usually still gloomy/dark when I wake up (at 5AM even in the summer it is not fully light out where I live) and by... Read more
