Cast Adrift

Monday, April 20, 2015      6 comments

All the articles Spark People has posted on my homepage for me to read are old. In internet terms, they are super old. 2012? Seriously? Do they need writers? Has SP been run by the fitness advice version of Hal 2000 since 2012? I'm st... Read more

Hitting the Mark

Sunday, April 19, 2015      0 comments

I just saw a blog about how aiming for perfection was a bad thing. I don't believe that. I thought I believed that, but it turns out I don't. Part of being alive is the struggle to become something better. When we give up, when we sett... Read more

Victory Garden

I just had the realization that if I work in my garden for 90 minutes every day, I can eat an insane* amount of calories. *Insane is a relative term and is used in ... Read more

A Stranger's Drink

Saturday, March 14, 2015      2 comments

I drink coffee every morning. My body requires it. Without it, I would probably die. You think I'm exaggerating. Well, stop thinking and read my story. I went to S_____ks this morning. (Fill in the blank, Sparkers. They make coffee. They li... Read more

The Politics of Housework

Sunday, March 08, 2015      1 comments

Sunday is the day I do most of my housecleaning. I could work on it all week, and get it done slowly, in little chunks, but I don't. I'm sure most of you know how this is. I work. I shuttle people back and forth to school. I fix dinner. By eveni... Read more

Playing Hooky

Thursday, August 07, 2014      1 comments

Today I will be playing hooky from work. I'm not going to get in trouble or anything. I just can't handle people today. I've told you in previous posts about my coworkers, my "friends." They are difficult to handle when I'm in a ... Read more

A Butcher, A Baker, A Candlestick Maker...

Wednesday, August 06, 2014      2 comments

Today is the day when complete strangers give me the "what do you want to be when you grow up" speech. Never mind that I'm a grown adult, with a union job, who has to wear nice shoes to work, has to sit through meetings, or that I'm in a field t... Read more

The Case Of The Missing Data

Monday, July 14, 2014      5 comments

I'm starting to think it's strange that I can't find long-term success rate data regarding Spark People. I can find it for Weight Watchers. I can find it for AA. Heck, I can find it for Biggest Loser. Surely there's been a study done on th... Read more

Today, I hit Level 13 here on Spark People. I'm writing this blog to remind myself that in order to see progress, to "level up," all I have to do is show up, drin... Read more

Food For Thought

Monday, June 30, 2014      3 comments

I don't eat McDonalds fries. I don't eat McDonalds anything. However, this picture makes me wonder just how many strawberries I could eat before feeling sick and never wanting to eat another strawberry again. I'm fairly sure I wouldn't make it t... Read more
