So it's week two of the scale not moving so much. It's still going down, but definitely not as much as I want/expect it to given how hard I've been working, this week in particular. I refuse to believe that I've hit another plateau already. I... Read more
You Can't Argue The Numbers (Reprise)
This merits a second blog post for the day. Check out THESE numbers.
I just swam an Olympic Triathlon distance in the pool. WHAT? After my 50 laps in 50 minutes last week I decided to see if I could best myself again. No excuses this ti... Read more
You Can't Argue The Numbers
Well...I lost a pound this week. Actually, I lost JUST UNDER a pound this week. And I'm disappointed.
But I'm not disappointed because I can't explain the low week. I'm disappointed because I thought I could get away with something, and ... Read more
Swimming to Meet My Long-Weekend Challenge
3 days. 3 blogs. 3 hours of exercise. This was the unofficial challenge I set for myself going into this long weekend. And here I am at the other end of it, successful! It hasn't been easy, and I've dealt with a lot of old emotions this wee... Read more
Those Glorious Golden Arches and My "Unofficial" 5K!
Trust me - it's not what you're thinking.
I'm a "destination walker" - meaning I really hate walking unless I've got somewhere to go. So being that I wanted to get a good, brisk walk in today I decided to cash in on a Groupon that I've bee... Read more
Unlocking A Level
So you know when you play a video game and there are only certain areas that you are allowed to go until you've played the game for a while, collected enough points, found the hidden diadem, the secret key, etc. etc. and then you get to unlock t... Read more

Tackling Mt. Washmore
I hate laundry.
I hate laundry so much that I have not made a concerted effort to really do all of it since January. Want to know how I know that? I JUST finished a load that contained the black top I wore on New Year's Eve. You know - t... Read more
If L'Oreal Says It, It Must Be True
I'm worth it.
Repeat after me - I'M WORTH IT!!!
Now by a show of hands, how many of you actually, really, truly believe what you just said? I'll tell you honestly, I've struggled my whole life with my own self worth. Only recently am... Read more
Alas, I promised a blog and a blog ye shall get. Unfortunately though, I'm not feeling particularly brilliant tonight, so I'm throwing together a hodge-podge of things that I'm thinking that may or may not have any relation to each other, but t... Read more
Go Get Your Own!
I am not a food sharer. I really, seriously suck at sharing anything on my plate. I'm like Joey on Friends (ah, Friends - I miss that show) when he goes out on a date with a pretty girl and has to dump her because she took one of his french fr... Read more
He told me I could have a cookie too. Drat! Now what? Do I want the cookie? - Yes. Can I afford the cookie (calorie wise)? - No. If I have it, I'll go over for the day. But it's there, and it's chewy and delicious and he offered it to me f... Read more
Ode to a Grocery Store
Oh, Whole Foods...how I love thee.
On Thursday mornings, my weekly schedule brings me close to a Whole Foods Market. Since I'm on my way to work when I pass by, I usually can't stop for long or buy too much because I have to keep it with m... Read more
Sparkies, Sparkies Everywhere!
Since joining SparkPeople I have started to look at the world differently.
There are the obvious ways - trying to figure out how to fit in more exercise, cooking new recipes, waking up every morning and walking myself through my day to make... Read more
Summer Flings and Diamond Rings
It was August 2006. I had just started a new job and was figuring myself a pretty big deal since this new position was in my field and finally paid more than poverty level in Chicago. I was working on my first big project that involved calling... Read more
