SPY 2, Day 123: It Could Have Been Me and May Still Be
One of my sparkfriends blogged today that she is leaving Sparkpeople because she has been eating right and exercising for months without seeing a change in the scale. Icertainly understand the feeling, not that I can make that claim. Another f... Read more
SPY 2, Day 120: I'm Making Progress
My huddle today for several teams was "I'm making progress". Unlike previous times I've chosen that one, today was not for exercise. Today was for handling stress in a different way. I did not eat mindlessly, I did not do any sabotage-creatin... Read more
SPY 2, Day 119: What's Wrong With Me?

SY 2, Day 117: Balance
I had a flare-up of my tendonitis, but it is not quite as bad as before. I think it's time to retire the shoes I was wearing. Instead of Kettlebells, I pulled out my balance ball for my first-ever mini workout on that. I have been doing small... Read more
SY 2, Day 116: Taking Charge Over Carbs and the Couch!
One of my SparkFriends had a statement on her home page: No longer food’s b***ch. I winced at the implied word, but I thought I understood the sentiment. Now I know I do. For the past month, I have been inconsistent with exercise and have be... Read more
SPY 2; Day 110: Trophy, Wallflower and Floundering
