My planned reward for reaching my goal has always been an adult trike. I know that might sound silly, but I had one when I was 12 years old. I used it to haul recycling into town. That's how I got some pocket money. It was extremely useful...and... Read more
You Get Nothing

I tell you, today I have zero patience for stupidity. Whining? Nope, not going to tolerate it. Bad driving? Forget it...I will yell at you...probably a long string of profanities. Self pity? Save it. I don't want to hear it. ... Read more
The Small Jeans
Sunday, May 05, 2013      13 comments

I put on my "small jeans" just a few minutes ago. You know what I'm talking about. It's that pair of jeans you refuse to throw out, even though you haven't fit in them for years. A month ago, I couldn't get them up over the midway point of my th... Read more
"For The Ladies"
Thursday, May 02, 2013      11 comments

Honestly, I see a new post on the message boards pretty much every day with a title like "for the ladies" or "Women Only! Warning TMI!" It always, always, ALWAYS has something to do with the monthly visit from Aunt Flo (or whatever other eu... Read more
The Last Ten
Saturday, April 27, 2013      5 comments

What is it about the last ten pounds that sounds so...different? You hear all the time that the last ten pounds is the hardest to lose. I think that may be true. The weight is definitely taking longer to come off these days. It's taking two... Read more

Oh, avocados! Why are you so delicious, nutritious, but always screw up my goals for the day? Avocados always make my amount of fat too high. I try to console myself b... Read more

My calories are creeping up again. I should pay attention to that. I should put an end to it, but I just don't have it in me right now. I was feeling exhausted after several months of near fanatical attention to my Sparking. My muscles felt drai... Read more
The Cake of Doom

I went grocery shopping today and I saw the prettiest piece of vegan, lemon poppy seed cake, made by a smallish bakery, sitting in my grocery store's bakery section. I make it a point to encourage the sale of such things. I want to help create t... Read more

As someone who studied Anthropology in college, I would like to say this article is SPOT ON. Every time I hear someone talk about a Paleo-diet of any sort, I almost always *facepalm.* Here's a link to the interview that explains some of the... Read more
Not Very Sparky
Saturday, April 06, 2013      11 comments

I have no energy. No motivation. I am absolutely, positively running on empty. There's a test pattern sound in my head. I'm just sitting here and staring. If my hair was on fire, I don't think I'd notice, and if I did, I'm not s... Read more
My Mother
Thursday, April 04, 2013      18 comments

My mother is tremendously unhealthy. Her idea of a "good breakfast" is a big plate of biscuits and gravy. Exercise is something she does slowly...and maybe once or twice a month. She never breaks a sweat while doing that exercise. It's not surp... Read more
Silly Sadistic Computer.

Ha! The great Spark People computer has finally said officially that I need more calories to survive! After YEARS of saying that I need to eat between 1200-1550, it now suddenly thinks I need 1,280-1,630! I had adjusted EVERYTHING repeated... Read more

As you may have noticed, I hang out over in the "Panic Button" message boards quite a bit. One of the most common panic posts comes in the form of... "I gained 3-7 pounds since yesterday! I'm a complete failure! This isn't working for me! S... Read more

Friday, March 22, 2013      8 comments

Today I reached one of my *important* goals. I don't think I have it posted on my wall, but I see it as being a HUGE milestone. This morning I jumped on the scale. After having a pound loss yesterday (133), I had ANOTHER pound loss today. ... Read more

Here's my usual disclaimer: You are not required to agree with me. You are not required to read my blogs. You are not required to comment about how displeased you are that I am a heathen. I am a heathen. If that's a problem for might w... Read more
