I strive to blog every single day here on Sparkpeople. I've made abortive attempts at blogs before, but this is the first I've been really consistent with.
Why do I do it?
Well, a number of reasons. Honestly, one is I like the atten... Read more
So today's the first time in a week I've felt something resembling normal. I woke up feeling great, and experienced no vertigo at all until the last 15 minutes of my workout! I got through an hour of boot camp, and 15 minutes of abs... the only ... Read more
Feeling a good bit better today. It's a good thing, too; I've only got one of my meclizine (the dizziness med) left. Still have some antibiotics to finish. I did oversleep, so I missed 30 minutes of the 45 minute heart pumpin' class. I went for ... Read more
So I'm on day FIVE of not being able to go to the gym.
This vertigo thing sucks. I've gotten used to eating at a certain level, and while I've adjusted my sparkpeople goals to reflect my current temporary activity level, I'm having a hard... Read more
And would someone PLEASE tell me how to deal with my neighbor's psychotic, NEVER-stopping dog? That doesn't involve a hotdog and a tylenol PM?
Seriously, this thing's only about a foot tall, and maybe 20 lbs, but it has a HUGE bark, and i... Read more
I don't really do cheat days. I eat healthy all the time, I don't diet, I don't binge (or at least, I try.)
Today though, I'm just plain tired of tracking, and still hungry... so I'm going to just declare it a cheat day, and start over tom... Read more
So the vertigo's still got my head, though it's improved, fortunately. I can sit, at least, without my head spinning. Standing, though... that's another story. It's better.
I have done very well with the eating today; I dropped my activity... Read more
Okay, so I know that there are two problems with my running.
1) Crappy shoes. Seriously, my running shoes are broken down... they've worn down on the inside tread, and provide no support anymore. They're fraying something terrible. I'm wor... Read more
So I love my sparkpoints... I find them terribly motivating, and I love being able to give sparkgoodies to other people. It's a good way to be accountable. And I'm approaching a 60 day login streak!
Today, though, I'm AT MY MAX. All I have... Read more
A couple of days ago, I was bragging to my husband about the fact that I haven't been sick, at ALL, since before I started working out 7 months ago. No colds, no sniffles, no sneezing, no nothing.
Well, I clearly jinxed myself. Last night... Read more
Okay, so today Sparkpeople had a blog entry about the current health screenings for women. On that blog (you can read it here: http://www.dailyspark.co m/blog.asp?post=dr_birdie_ on_the_new_womens_health_g uidelines

Everything about being successful, be it weight loss, participating in an online community, raising your kids, work, anything, is about your attitude. A bad attitude sours everyone around you, sabotages your efforts, and ends in eventual failure... Read more
So today was a day of firsts. We'd planned to make pizza for supper yesterday, but an unplanned trip to the Mexican restaurant and and unforseen expenditure at Walmart of $145 (!) derailed those plans. I DID get two new workout shirts, though. ... Read more

This seriously makes me want to vomit.
This is the stuff that eating disorders are MADE of. How can any parent humili... Read more
Ouch, ouch, ouch.
My usual Friday body blast class was cancelled because the instructor had a death in the family, but another of the instructors happened to be there, and we convinced him to do the class with us. This is the guy that does... Read more
