Emotions Are Curious Things...
Today I was feeling fine, working and getting things done and then a few little things threw me off. They were not major, a little hiccup with one of my colleagues who was being negative when I need him to get some things done, a comment from a... Read more
I Am My Own Valentine
It’s been a good week. I have been remembering to love myself, just for being myself. In the past I’ve given myself a lot of positive feedback for the good things I do – eating right, achieving goals I set, volunteering for our local charity, g... Read more

Yesterday I graded my progress towards January goals and gave myself an “F.” Whoah, not good! This was based on my failure to fully achieve even one of my 4 goals, and on most of them, barely 50%. But today I decided that maybe that was unfai... Read more
Here’s an assessment of my January goals:
Stay within my calorie range 29 out of 31 days in January (all except New Years Day and my birthday -- 2 streaks of 14 and 15 days each): I achieved the first half of the goal, but everything fell ... Read more
Disappointed in Myself
This week, not so great in terms of meeting goals.
I had planned to go out on my birthday and not worry about calories, but unfortunately one day turned into 4. It was a very celebratory week, some of my dear friends had birthdays too and ... Read more
After the past week, it was good to have a quiet weekend. Other than going to my first painting class -- which was very interesting although we didn't touch paintbrush to canvas yet -- I pretty much rested. I think I was emotionally exhausted a... Read more
I KNOW these blogs are pretty boring. Sorry to anyone who is reading! But I made a commitment to keep track of my stress and how it affected my eating and exercise habits and now I am torturing mySparkfriends by keeping it!
So, to catch ... Read more
Eight Day Streak and Hot Yoga
I am on an eight day streak and of eating less than 1550 calories per day and it feels great!
I also went to a hot yoga class and it was really challenging. The heat really loosens up the muscles and it feels good to sweat it out.

Today was better than yesterday...
Today, thankfully, was better than yesterday. I kept to my plan to work out this morning at the gym and thought about what I needed to do to resolve work problems (see yesterday).
And then I went into work and had a talk with my boss, ask... Read more
Lots of Stress
So, today sucked. I was really angry at work when I got my annual review and it was not what I expected and hoped for. I had a major project last year for which I was promised top reviews and bonus if I performed well. Which I did, by all obje... Read more
Today was tough, emotionally. Recent breakup with SO, and a day we would have spent together doing fun and familiar things. I knew it would be difficult so I prepared. Monitoring stress and trying to be proactive, as I promised myself…

I really need a kick start so I decided to set some basic goals for this first month of the year. They are pretty minimal, since I think that's what I need right now, what with slower than expected recovery from knee surgery, a lousy cold and ... Read more
Holiday Update: Back On Track Again!
Well, I can't say I've been very successful in consuming fewer calories over the past months, or losing weight either. Actually gained 3 lbs but I hate, hate, HATE to move the tracker. Isn't that silly? It is what it is, so I may as well admi... Read more

Just the Basics
For a long time, I was in the business of setting myself a lot of goals which were wonderful and idealistic, but I was never able to fully achieve. I had a whole lot of things on my list like creating art and getting a masters degree that I tho... Read more
