My last blog was over a month ago, and I could just repeat it here again, for all the progress I haven't made. I still feel like a chunky monkey, tried to eat good last night and got off track very quickly...*sigh*
It doesn't help that it's... Read more
Feeling my weight
Today, I'm feeling every pound, every inch, all the flab. It's just one of those days. It doesn't help that I ate too many cookies yesterday, and already had one today. Ok, three. Definitely makes me feel the ick!
I'm not mad, and I'm not beat... Read more
Exercise: Some motivation required
I don't hate to workout. In fact, once I'm at the gym, I enjoy my time there. I will admit, I often find myself peeking at the clock, eager to get home and relax, but I do really enjoy getting my body moving.
So if I enjoy being so physical af... Read more
Frustrations and anger
I am super frustrated at work. It's a little complicated, and I don't think I would do well to explain it in detail, but I will try to give an overview. :
My work was 'acquired' by a larger company of the same business. While I was in ICU, the... Read more
I'm back after quite a long leave. I'm not quite ready to explain where I've been in detail, but did have the brain surgery I mentioned last year. Twice. And it did not go so well. I should add a disclaimer here: The surgery was not for a tumor ... Read more
Last night did not go so well. Breakfast, lunch, and snack - cha-ching! I did great.
Then I got home, and realized I forgot to turn on the crockpot. Doh! ... Read more
Ignorance is not so blissful
I've had a lot on my plate lately. And I'll admit it, for once. I haven't been dealing with the stress very well. Or at all. I sit around, mope, eat, and complain of how I have no friends.
(I've been over this part before, but it is true - I h... Read more
I'm here, I'm here! . . . but, my heart's just not in it.
I'm here, but..
I haven't logged in in way too long.
I haven't checked in on my spark buddies in an embarrassingly long time. Although, I have thought about you guys!
I haven't logged my food in...wait, we log our food here?
And working ... Read more
Good stuff, and ... well, brains.
Good stuff first, because I'm excited about that. The other stuff, not so much.
I have a birthday celebration weekend to attend this weekend, and we're all dressing up for a dinner Saturday night. I have nothing nice to wear except for work... Read more
Like a bowl full of jelly
I love, love, love Christmas. It is my absolute favorite time of year. From putting up the tree (always the day after Thanksgiving!) to getting up early and setting up the living room before hubby gets up, to loading up on hot cocoa, I love it a... Read more
I am being selfish, self-involved, and proud of it.
Today, I looked in the mirror, and wasn't completely happy with what I saw. My top was showing my muffin top and love handles and huge belly, and I just wasn't feeling.

Weekends, why do you hate me so?
Weekends are still very tough for me. Some weekends, I get it spot on. Others, more often, are filled with bad choices. I still struggle with them, it seems a constant battle.
This past weekend was no exception. I'm not sure where things went ... Read more
Listening to my body
I've been trying so hard to listen to my body since I started SP. I think it's important to know your body, be in tune with yourself, and learn to listen to what your body is trying to tell you.
Lately I haven't had much of an appetite. So,... Read more
Flexibility and Commitment
How badly do I want this?
How hard am I willing to work to get stronger, healthier, happier, balanced?
Anything. I will do anything to feel stronger, build up my weakening muscles, be the healthiest that I can be. I'm willing to put in th... Read more
Just some thoughts.
I don't know what's been going on with me lately. So, I'm going to use my blog to try and work things through. Feel free to skip. :)
My emotions have been all over the place lately. There are some reasons why, that I think I can pinpoint as bi... Read more
