Monday Morning Confessionals

Monday, February 07, 2011      8 comments

First off, before I launch into my blog this morning, I want to personally thank the Sparkers on the Canadian East Coasters group for supporting me in coming up with Weekend Challenges. I need the cheer-leading squad, especially on the weekends... Read more

Does the Nutritional Tracker have to be so brutally honest?

Friday, January 28, 2011      2 comments

Well, I think we all know the answer to that question. *sigh* ;-P I've got half a plan in the works for the Weekend Survival. I've mentioned it before, and I know I'm not alone, but weekends are by far, the toughest time of the week for ... Read more

Are toes supposed to bleed?

Tuesday, January 25, 2011      1 comments

Yeah, ok, I know the answer to that one, and it's NO. So tell that to one toe in particular. *sigh* A couple weeks ago, I finally bought a new pair of walking sneakers, and I've been breaking them in since then. About a week ago, I notic... Read more

Dear Santa, Thank you for stopping by last night. My Guy & I missed you by a couple hours, yesterday was such a busy day. I hope you liked the skim milk and low-fat cookies I left for you on the table, I hear you're watching your sugar an... Read more

I know what it was now

Friday, December 24, 2010      2 comments

Monday was such a yucky day, very little was able to lift my mood. Wednesday rolls around, and it was evident that PMS played a part in Monday. A return to being on track is always worth sharing. Merry Christmas! Jo... Read more

So much for staying on track before Christmas

Monday, December 20, 2010      0 comments

I have no idea what happened. I don't know how it got so bad that I couldn't stay out of the cookies & chocolate. I tried to stay on track, I really did. I have no idea what happened to that strong-willed hip-chick who found the willp... Read more

Let the foolishnes-- er... festivities begin!

Thursday, December 16, 2010      0 comments

Potlucks. Buffets. Home cooked meals. Cookies. Sweet breads. Oh, the joys of the holiday season. I'm still working on, and have been for a decade or so, to move food away from the focus of celebrations, and to celebrate the event r... Read more

I need to find some inner strength

Thursday, December 02, 2010      3 comments

This morning, while checking out my friends on Facebook, GothDaughter posted something on her profile that irked me somewhat, and I responded to it. And that, in turn, became a big argument online. Great. Just what I needed, an argument o... Read more

Going home can be hard on the scales

Tuesday, November 30, 2010      0 comments

Going home to visit family usually ends up hurting my efforts on the scales. Between Dad's compulsive eating and buying food, my sister's chaotic household with a couple of young children, and the option to eat at any restaurant I want, it's re... Read more

I talked myself out of it

Wednesday, November 24, 2010      4 comments

To my SparkFriends who know how much of a love/hate relationship I have with Pizza Delight, you'll be delighted to know that I talked myself out of having lunch there today. But it was a close call. Today is my last day with my current... Read more

I want to learn how to box

Friday, November 19, 2010      3 comments

So as I was doing my walking cardio on Wednesday, it occured to me that I'm still not getting enough cardio to even pretend to be healthy. Yes, the treadmill was tough, I pushed myself hard because I knew I wouldn't get my minimum fitness minut... Read more

When did I start to speed up?

Wednesday, November 17, 2010      4 comments

It's still raining in the Maritimes, which means that today, I went to O'Willie's for my lunchtime walk. As I walked around the track, my warmup lap seemed to go faster than I last remember being able to do it. I checked my watch, and yes, it ... Read more

Great blog ideas right out the window!

Tuesday, November 16, 2010      4 comments

Like many of today's women, I'm busy all the time. There aren't many moments of my workday that aren't planned out or booked for meetings. I know this, which is why I also "book time" with myself, so I can find the marbles I usually lose throu... Read more

What are Calories?

Monday, November 15, 2010      4 comments

I just got this in an email, and I really had to share it. "Calories are the little f*!#ers that get into your wardrobe at night and sew your clothes tighter" Read more

My orthotic inserts are here!

Wednesday, November 10, 2010      0 comments

Today is a happy day. The rains finally stopped, after 5 days worth of liquid sunshine. My toes have happily recovered from the sneaker debacle on Monday. And my new orthotic inserts have arrived. I wore them this morning for a couple ho... Read more
