Compliments I have received today
Sometimes, it's not what I look like on the outside that people notice, it's what's on the inside, what I do for people, or how I help others.
Today, like most Thursdays since March, I emailed the couponing group at work, highlighting the s... Read more
3 Years on Spark.... already?! Really?!
I knew my 3 year Sparkversary was coming up, and during the last week, I had been checking to see if I could nab the trophy for 3 years to post on my page. The trophy became available today. :-D
So you're probably wondering what I've lear... Read more
One more thing I learned while on SparkPeople
I had company this weekend, and sweets were brought over. One person brought cheesecake, and for some really odd reason, it didn't get eaten that night, so it stayed in my fridge.
And then I took the next 3 days to eat it all myself.

This is what I feel like
Last week, one of my co-workers didn't like what I had to say in an email, and he decided to call me up and express his discontentment. Except he yelled at me on the phone... Read more
Is this a good sign?
Earlier this week, I found myself in a department store, looking for the tax software that I usually use. They didn't have it in that store, but since I was in the electronics department, I thought I would go look for the new SparkPeople workou... Read more
I'm gonna eat the world
To borrow an expression from KiYoshi04 that fits the mood well, I'm gonna eat the world. Don't quite know what's going on, but I have the empty pit in stomach feeling today. It didn't help that there's a big bag of buttery popcorn, 2 bags of B... Read more
Day 10 and a peek into how my brain thinks
Daytime smoke is hanging in there. I'm still croaking throughout the day at the office, but I don't like the cold temps, so stepping out for a puff is a good deterrent.
At least until I get home.
Last night, My Guy "found" 3 smokes in... Read more
Day 9 .... um, yeah....
So I had my smoke yesterday afternoon, and I was all set to not have any last night.... till My Guy decided he really wanted one, and couldn't we just share one? *sigh* There's none home, Sweetheart. His reply was a cheeky grin, and a finger ... Read more
Day 8 and I'm hopeful
Picking up where I left off yesterday, my last smoke then was before I wrote the blog. Today's first (and only) cigarette was around 1:30 today.
I croaked most of the morning, and stared at the Nicorette gum. Why I didn't use the gum, I'l... Read more
Day 7 and getting a little better
Monday, I decided to slow down the afternoon smokes, and the last one I had yesterday was around 2:30pm. I was ok, a little edgy, but ok.
I had my next smoke this morning around 11:30am.
And then one more about 10 mintues ago.
I'... Read more
Days 4 & 5 and peek at Day 6
Well, that was a weekend disaster in the making.
Did ok Friday night, had a couple.
Saturday was just not gonna happen for not eating well, let alone not smoking.
Sunday was just as bad.
Found out Friday that an old friend of My Gu... Read more
Day Three and Dwindling
No smokes at home last night. This one's getting easier to do, especially in the evenings.
At work, I've now moved from "going on smoke break with the gang" to "go on break alone". This is allowing me to decide if and when I'll go for a p... Read more
Day Two on cutting back
Last night was good, no smokes at home. It felt kinda weird, though. With the extra time I had from not smoking, I was able to finish up the grocery list for tonight, including where to get the best deals with the coupons I have.
So tonig... Read more
It starts today
To my fantabulous SparkFriends, you're going to get sick of this storyline. To the Sparkers who don't know me yet, I expect this to be the first of my whine-&-cheez fests while I quit smoking.
Yes, I'm at it again. I'm going to renew my e... Read more
I finally decided on a Reward for a Goal
I think I figured out a new reward I want to give myself for reaching goals. I've always wanted to have a wardrobe makeover, mainly because, well, I don't have a good sense on how to dress up. I try, but only about 25% of my clothes actually mak... Read more
