Why I am here
Sometimes, I seem to lose sight of the reasons I am here. They fall to back, and don't always stand out in the forefront as they should. These reasons keep me going, keep me motivated, and help to push me.
I will be honest, some of these reas... Read more
What was that Miz Sara Lee? Surely I misread...
I hate grocery shopping. I hate it even more when I'm not feeling well, and temptation is way too easy to give in to. At my grocery store, to start, you go to the right which leads you directly into the bakery and deli. How horrible is that?!

...but it was good enough.
I'm reflecting on the weekend I had, and the goals I hit and the goals I missed. Here is a recap:
Friday, I didn't have the veggies to make stir-fry as I had planned, so we had pasta instead. It was good, and I served it with a side of stea... Read more
I need to lay out my game plan. Again.
Or maybe I just need to revise it a bit. I don't know. Either way, I haven't been sticking to it, although I have been putting effort into most aspects. (Hey, at least I can be honest.)
So here we go....

Tapering is hard to do
I have tapering woes. Why, you ask? Especially when I have been working SO, SO, SOOOO hard to get off of steroids? After all, I have been on them for four years now.
Well, first, the good news. I'm fighting to stay on only 5mg/day now. That's... Read more
My new jeans, and proud of today!
I blogged earlier about how I had trashed my Pajama Jeans, thanks to all the support from my sparkbuddies. I finally was able to go to the store, and try on jeans in sizes that made me uncomfortable, and bring home a pair. I got a belt, too! Her... Read more
I seem to do best when I schedule things into my day, very precisely. I know it seems a little extreme, but for me, it works, especially right now. So here is tonight's schedule:

After some awesome advice and support from the SP Cafe and the team Lupus - Team Butterfly, I finally went to the store yesterday and got a new pair of jeans.

Sidenote: I had this blog all written out, and the internet didn't like it and lost it. :( So this will probably be shorter, but all well.
Here are my updated goals/rules:

That strictness I was talking about...
A while back, I blogged about how I wanted to try being a little bit more strict with myself. More rules, goals, and things to follow. I do well with rules, and I think that's what my plan was lacking. Well, of course, I never got around to real... Read more
wowzer. THAT was tough!! but i did it!!
I had a really rough day at work again. I don't want to go into it, as it's the weekend now, but basically, I was doing the job of three people, all the while the phone was ringing off the hook. 1/3 of what I was doing causes me a lot of physica... Read more
I have such a weakness for convenience food! After fasting over lunch for a test today, I was heading home and planned to eat the soup I had made a few nights ago for this week's lunches. Instead, I stopped at a fast food joing. I'm not even sur... Read more
Cancel that drumroll...
Ok, here's the deal. I used to weigh in on Sundays, to keep myself accountable. I just recently changed to Mondays, to go along with the SP weigh-in group. I've also found I kind of like it that day, too. Then I started thinking about maybe doin... Read more
