Starting all over again....
...is gonna be tough, but we gonna make it. (As the song so beautifully says.) So, after a LONG absence, I have my new laptop and I got up early enough to use my "anytime bytes" and have a little peace and quiet. Read the last couple of blogs I ... Read more
Success and The Meaning of Life
What is "being successful"? I've been thinking about this some, lately. What I see is that often the people who are deemed "successful" are a) rich, b) incredibly over-stressed, c) too busy to enjoy life, or d) all of the above. I know success h... Read more
Back in the saddle again...
A combination of factors have kept me away from SP for a few months. My internet was so weak and iffy and prone to go off every 5 minutes, for one thing. My computer was totally on the fritz, for another. And things in my family household were i... Read more
My Personal Thanksgiving Challange
I haven't had the luxury of time to blog for a long time. I guess checking in every day on the Maintenance Team's daily check-in has substituted for blogging. However, today I need to take a few extra minutes and put my thoughts, goals, and plan... Read more
Primal Eating, Update #4
Wow, it has been a long while since I've had enough time to myself to even think of blogging. Summer school is now over, though, and I have three blissful weeks until the regular school year starts. Today is supposed to be over 100º, so I got my... Read more
Update #3 on Primal Eating
I've been getting very creative the past few days, and cooking things that turned out oh-so-delicious! I'm on vacation from working at school, and my hubby took 3 weeks off, and my son is home from university for 2 weeks. So I'm making 3 meals a... Read more
My Summer Goals
I just got done re-reading my two fairly recent blogs about eating Primally 4 out of every 5 meals. I have continued on with this plan, and am loving it so far. Except for my non-primal snack yesterday, where I went overboard and had 2 pieces of... Read more
My New Experiment in Eating, Part 2
This past week I have implemented the plan I thought up for how to eat Primal fashion 80% of the time, and I am really shocked at the results! In case you didn't see the blog last week, I'll quickly recap the plan. According to the book I am rea... Read more
My First Sparkiversary
It was nice of the school district to give me this special day off, don't you think!? It is my own special memorial day, and I am remembering all the good things that have happened in the last year. I am so happy to be at 133.8 today, instead of... Read more
My New Experiment in Eating
I think I can safely say that I am officially a weird person who loves to live by rules. I, of course, like to change up the rules now and then because otherwise I get bored and in a rut. Nevertheless, I like rules. I think it's my way of coping... Read more
Birthday Reflections on a Year of Change
I can hardly ever find time to blog anymore! I wanted to write something yesterday, which was my actual birthday, but spent all my computer time reading all the birthday greetings on facebook. Today I'm awake half an hour before my alarm went of... Read more
I'm So Thankful I Found SparkPeople!
I haven't posted a blog entry for a long time, due to time constraints and to the fact that I check in on the daily check-in thread on the Maintenance Team page. Tonight I'm home alone, first night of Spring Break, music on in the background, gu... Read more
Sally Goes Shopping Alone
When I was a kid we used to read a story by that title, an old book which was my mother's when she was a kid. Yesterday it was me, not Sally, that went shopping alone, and actually had fun. I am not usually a fan of shopping, especially for clot... Read more
My New Word for the Year
I am very excited about entering this New Year. It is the first time I can ever remember entering a year without having to resolve to lose weight. This time, I am resolving to maintain weight instead. That is super exciting to me!

Musings on holiday bingeing
For most people, this is Christmas morning. For me, it's the day after Christmas. We celebrated everything a day early to accommodate my son, who sings professionally in church services and is very busy this time of year. Anyway, it's very quie... Read more
