Bad Planning Isn't an Excuse

Monday, April 13, 2015      0 comments

I've known about this short business trip for several weeks. I had meal planning/ healthy snacks on my to do list all weekend. As it stood, I left my house seconds after finishing my packing and knew I wouldn't get to my room until 11pm. I did ... Read more

You Don't Even Know What a Goldfish Is!\\

Friday, August 01, 2014      6 comments

This isn't a joke. I don't think I need to say on this website that you have to let a person have their dream. For those that know me, you know that I have been looking for a really BIG prize to give myself for my one year anniversary. I had ... Read more

I'm done trying to lose weight. I'm revising my end goal to be a range of 134-138 which is less than the halfway mark for a normal/healthy BMI for my height. I don't regret having initially set a goal of 134. That was the weight I hovered at ... Read more

Learning Something New...again...for the first time

Sunday, March 30, 2014      2 comments

From my very first day on SP, I always wanted to get past Levels 1-13. Some of them were ok, but I really didn't like 12 and 13 and wanted to be done with them. All is good. I had a goal. I just (as in 30 minutes ago) made it to Level 14 and... Read more

In SparkCoach, I recently graduated to the consistency and motivation stage. They have a daily challenge where they explain the who, what, when, where, why and how and then it is your job to get it done. Today's challenge was kind of exciting.... Read more

Wow, that IS me

Tuesday, January 07, 2014      1 comments

I consider myself a fair critic of my habits and rarely have to pause for very long asking myself "is that me?" Especially when it comes to objective things like portion control or cheating on workouts. For this reason, I was just stupefied by... Read more

Life is Good..Ha Ha

Saturday, September 21, 2013      0 comments

That "Ha Ha" is piratical in the Princess Bride sense of the word. As in, I would like to be sarcastic but life is just so good so ha ha there is it. I know this isn't what people want to hear but this is the way things happen to me because I ... Read more

Good bye skinny pants

Saturday, September 07, 2013      2 comments

I got sick of feeling sorry for myself and decided to try a spell of grumpy instead. The thing I like about being in a bad mood is that there is no excuse for not doing something you are not looking forward to. Being in a particularly entrenche... Read more

I Lied and I Knew It

Come to be! Skip, dance, love, embrace life that is what Symphony 3 is saying. I just missed him too much that time. This time (and yes it is 20 minutes latter) I hear stand up and deliver. I might could. Dearest of Fathers spoiled me somet... Read more

Saturday, September 07, 2013      0 comments

You can eat every wheat thin in the world and it won't fill the hole in your heart. Sorry. It is just you and Rachmaninov. Okay maybe this is why I don't blog. I'm depressing. I'm not Depressed. I'm actually usually sweetly happy but jus... Read more
