Sunday is a fun day!
This morning the dog woke me up (as usual) at around 5:30 am. I get up, put clothes on, take her out, and when we get back, she promptly takes my spot and falls asleep. Instead of getting crabby, I take this time to update my spark, and make c... Read more

A lot of blogs and threads have already covered a lot of the more common, including stress, emotion, boredom, etc. For me, there are several reasons why I would eat when I was not hungry. If I am bored, this certainly can be the case, although... Read more
woohoo! under 140!
Today, for the first time since my bout with severe depression, I weighed in under 140 lbs. True, this was after a 5 mile run with temp in the upper 70s, but I got on the scale and saw 139.4! I still have more than 10 lbs to go, because I am n... Read more
I have heard a lot on here lately about sabotage, either by close friends and family, or by those people not close but forced to socialize with, such as coworkers. Fortunately, I have the most supportive family. My husband loves healthy food, ... Read more

Just 1 complaint here
I am going to do what I told myself I wouldn't do. I'm going to complain about this gorgeous weather we've been having. You see, if it hadn't been beautiful and warm all week last week, and still beautiful and warm this week, I wouldn't have g... Read more
ok, I need help
so, I had a board game party yesterday. These are always fun, and we are just nerdy enough that we really enjoy these game days. However, when I host, I have to make sure that there is plenty of food on hand, and inevitably others bring snack ... Read more
changing small things
my husband and I had been slowly falling into a trap where we would go meet with friends less and less, so there we were, at home, night after night, and we were going to bed earlier and earlier. Sometimes, we would get home from work, take out... Read more
what an awesome run!
Today, the weather is gorgeous. Unseasonably warm, supposed to get to 72 today. So, despite having a million things to do, my husband and I scheduled a morning run. We harnessed the dog, and took a quick (ha ha) 4.5 mile jog through the park.... Read more
