I've seriously been neglecting Spark. Of course, there are reasons for that. Mostly, that my diet has been anywhere but on course and I've been out of town more than in town for nearly the last two months. Traveling is killer. Kudos to those who... Read more
I've really been enjoying using Your Shape Fitness Evolved on the Xbox 360 which uses kinect, the motion sensing technology. It does the things I'm crummy at, where are doing enough reps and moving fast enough. I tend to be a bum and slow way do... Read more
When I started this journey in 2008, I was damn near unstoppable. I got up and walked, I counted calories, I was crazy, and I lost nearly 50lbs. Well, I've been decent about not gaining that back, but both 2009 and 2010 were years of ups and dow... Read more
Okay, so I missed a few days, I'm working on it.
I did decently this weekend, I think. My weigh-in is tomorrow, and I had my high calorie day Sunday and fasted today, so we'll see how it all balanced out.
I'm back to sugar-free baking.... Read more
I spent far too much time at karaoke tonight, so very, very short blog.
Food: all on track, had two vodka-sodas at karaoke instead of real snack, and avoided corn tortillas with dinner
Exercise: Does karaoke count? I also did Yoga this... Read more
Wow, I haven't blogged in forever.
Long story, short: my job situation is a bit precarious and my blog is taking off and my life is insane.
However, I've recently found more time in my life by experimenting with biphasic sleep. I may ... Read more
My little sister is a vile temptress. She sits on the couch and says things like "I want ice cream" and "we should go out to dinner, you already cooked one meal today" and "let's make raspberry lemonade bars". They were really, btw, and I ate tw... Read more
I like chili. I made some tonight for friends who came over to roll a DnD character and play a game of Pandemic. It was loaded with veggies and four different beans. Then we made jalapeno-cheddar cornbread muffins.
This morning my husband w... Read more
My toes hurt. Well, one toe in particular seems to be unhappy and inflamed. I think I need some better socks. Running is quite the sport, I keep buying new stuff for it!
This morning, I ran 20 min, took a break, then ran 26 min. Monday I ra... Read more
Cherries are yummy. I'm eating them tonight trying to bypass a rather serious ice cream craving. I'm also skipping my evening workout, but I ran this morning (shorter run, only 25ish minutes) and did a midday walk/stairs thing, so I'm good.

Tonight for dinner I made some yummy stuff! I made an Italian bolognese style sauce with sausage and pureed collards, zucchini, banana peppers, and garlic scapes and just a tiny dash of red chili (like you use to spice Thai food). Then I steamed... Read more
I decided to actually buy a handful of tomatillos at Whole Foods yesterday to make Chili Verde tonight. It was yummy! Here's the recipe http://recipes.sparkpeop le.com/recipe-detail.asp?r ecipe=1138806&ff=1 . I leave the see... Read more
So, my Colorado fieldwork got a little crazy and after a few 10-12hour days, blogging became low on the agenda. Then I was home for a day and then me and my husband took a four day trip to Walt Disney World during which I pretty ... Read more
So, I'm in Colorado and it turns out Colorado has hills. Well, okay, Colorado has mountains, but I went running this morning and it was up and down quite a few hills whereas my typical running path in Mass is flat. So, that was tough. It is Than... Read more
