I am in a tough financial situation these days due to an unemployed spouse. He has been laid off before, it's not uncommon with his position (Quality Engineering Manager-Quality always seems to get cut first). We are in a situation that we hav... Read more

My weight is up a little. I need to bring it back down. I stocked up on healthy food today from my farmer's market. I went on a two hour walk with fellow local sparkers this morning. I am going to get my diet and fitness back under control. ... Read more
Fridays Haven't Been Good Diet Days
Friday, May 14, 2010      2 comments

I weigh myself nearly everyday on my Wii Fit. I have been staying at the same weight lately (which I am okay with, but it's not preferred). I looked at the scatter plot graph recently and noticed that Fridays and the weekend I go up, and the r... Read more

My daughter turned 9 yesterday. My friend and fellow sparker LILHLFPINT signed us up for the Revlon run/walk 5k (Thank you Mary!!!). It was my daughter's first 5k (mine too, but I have done a 10K and a half marathon before). My daughter told ... Read more
Hanging Out in the 170's
Monday, April 26, 2010      9 comments

I have gone up and down in the 179-172 range for the last few months. I think that is okay right now. I like losing, and some day I will reach that goal of 150. It just might not be right now. My life has been hectic and I have a lot of chan... Read more

It sucks losing weight during a major recession, especially when that recession effects my life personally. I have seen my lifestyle go down the last few years. It's at the point now, where I have an unemployed husband and I am working late ho... Read more
"Gaunt" really?
Wednesday, April 07, 2010      8 comments

My husband used a very unflattering term last night. He said I was looking "gaunt", and then expressed concerned that I was losing too much weight. I haven't had anyone use the word "gaunt" to describe me before, and I think I am far from "gau... Read more
I Got The Dress Zipped!

I bought a tiny dress for $5 at an antique swap meet about a year ago. I told myself that when I fit into this tiny little dress that I was throwing myself a cocktail party to celebrate. The dress has the tiniest little waist. This morning I ... Read more
No Time for Dinner
Friday, April 02, 2010      5 comments

Although I am not working the most ideal shift, I really like my new second job. It's a bit empowering to know that I can make enough to pay our big old mortgage. With my new job, I am leaving my house at 10:15 a.m. and I return at a little af... Read more

Okay..., today I got on the Wii and I was down like 3 pounds and I was down a pound the previous day as well. So instead of being 3 pounds up this month, I am .4 of a pound down. I am happy with that. It is in the right direction. Next month... Read more
No Weight Lost In March

For almost two years, I have successfully lost some weight each month. This month looks like it is going to be the first month that is not the case. It's not over yet, but so far it's looking like I gained 3 pounds. I wasn't doing too bad unt... Read more

Big sigh of relief..., we got an unemployment check for my husband yesterday, so that helps. I am still waiting to hear about that job I interviewed for last week, but was told I would hear something soon. The person who does the hiring was on... Read more
Blooming Agapanthus
Saturday, March 06, 2010      6 comments

Several months ago I was cleaning up the morning glory that had overtaken my yard. As I ripped up a foot high pile of morning glory out of my flower bed, I notice that there was a blooming agapanthus under it. I thought to myself "what a stron... Read more

Friday, March 05, 2010      8 comments

My stress level has been on high this last month. My husband lost his job in January, and we are having some issues with unemployment benefits (haven't received any and not sure if we will-long story). I am trying so hard to stay positive and ... Read more
I Finished My First Half Marathon
Monday, February 08, 2010      19 comments

On Sunday, I ran in my friend's (LILHLFPINT) place in the Surf City half marathon. I hadn't trained for this event, and I have never done a half marathon before, only a 10K. I found out that I was taking her place last Thursday, just 3 days be... Read more
